Great Sermon! I enjoyed the debate. I do not feel it answered the question which position was Biblical. To me it was still vague. I personally have difficulty with both positions. First, Jesus loved children...of such is the Kingdom of Heaven. As a loving Father, God is going to keep them from the edge of the cliff. Secondly, God is not the author of confusion, Calvinism has a way for a child to cry in their sleep worring about not being one of the elect. How can a parent teach all their children Gods love and at the same time say you may not be his choice for heaven. If that is the case, you will be tormented in an eternal flame so deal with it. 3rd, if a person chooses to accept Gods grace, it does not limit Gods ability, mark Gods character, or give anyone of something to boast. Instead, it shows that all things are possible with God, He is still Holy, all powerful, and all knowing. Then, I have nothing to boast if I choose to use my free will no more than if I tell my children to clean their room. Instead, they know the consequences if they dont. They can not boast on what they have an obligation to do. REPENTANCE is the same. If we boast, it is not Repentance. God has elected all who are living to breath. He controls the next heart beat. Yet, in His sovereignty gives people a choice.
Great study. The greater part of this message deals with Iranaeus and his theology, especially his theology of recapitulation. Good observations, especially on his view of the Fall and its consequences.
Great Sermon! It is fantastic to raise issues that most matter to societal survival and well-being! But cares that must be taken before selecting the speakers and their real and hidden motives as devils are on alert to destroy you America and your free blessings from God Almighty! Without God's hand and mercy USA can't exist for a moments especially these terrible days! Watch out and don't give your fist to your enemy to destroy you and your values! May be you haven't seen yourself from outside as you Americans are very proud of yourselves! Just do some researches to see the present day USA in may mind! America has totally been changing from the one I had been told by my father and grandmother! Even if debate is good for your political corrected-ness and the so called unclear and ambiguous human made democracy, much better to be alert on the main issue-responding to Almighty God! Jesus knows more than US! Tell this to all who are proud of their 80 years of incomplete love and knowledge! Ezekiel331-5 God's Message came to me:"Son of man,speak to your people. Tell them, 'If I bring war on this land and the people take one of their citizens & make him their watchman, & if the watchman sees war coming & blows the trumpet, warning the people, then if anyone hears the sound of the trumpet ...
Great Sermon! Dr. Fernandes,
John Macarthur tweaked his position on the eternal sonship of Christ.
I appreciate all the effort you put into this series. I am on number 11 now.
I also appreciate that you do not make the early church fathers against baptismal regeneration, but rather suggest it was an inching towards that doctrine. Very fair assessment.
Very insightful! I have a lot more to think about A great message as always. I check your page just about weekly to see if there's anything new, and have recommended you to several of my friends who were wondering how they can be closer to God, so don't feel like you're talking into thin air. I can't say how many other listeners you have, but rest assured there's at least one guy across the world listening!
Great Sermon! A must hear sermon! As the Pastor states, America (and one might as well say all of the 1st world) has entered the last stage of decay. The corruption is oozing from all the pores, and God has given America over to it's iniquity.
Great Sermon! i actually agree with you on some things, the only thing i disagree with is the last trumpet...after the last trumpet there are the bowl judgments, so if we are going at the last trumpet, then there still is judgments that are going to come upon the earth, i think we may have to go thru some of it but not all of it. in the book Heaven is soo real, choo thomas says that Jesus told her that he would take us out pretrib, there will be people here that will be saved during the trib,and those are the ones that have to die for Jesus to be saved and refuse the mark. so there has to be something specail for them, we who are taken before the trib, will return with him on the white horses... no matter what, i still love Jesus and i appreciate your stance. i used to believe that we would go thru the trib, but after reading choo's book, now im pretrib. thanks and God bless..see you in Heaven!!
Great Debate! I'm glad to finally find a sermon on this site that includes the right side of this argument. Listen very carefully to both sides and don't go with your knee-jerk reaction. Actually think about the long-reaching messages of the Bible and the not specific verses that are so easy to take wildly out of context.
Audio unlistenable :( I have heard Dr. Fernandes many times before and was really looking forward to this series; I hope future messages in the series will resolve the audio issues as the quality of this one made it impossible to hear. Thank you offering the messages though!
Thankyou ! Being a great admirer,and listener of Scott A.Johnsons sermons,i have been hoping there would be somebody with other serious sermons of like manner.
So thankyou for this sermon, excellent.
Great Sermon! This is something I needed to hear. It's hard, so hard to be at peace. People kick you when you're down. Then they offer you a helping hand only to kick you back down again. I want revenge. I want it so badly I could taste it, but I must move on even though I want to strike back. But I needed this message. I needed it alot. Thank you.
