Great Sermon! Excellent exposition of the Word of God. This is another clear reminder from Scripture to Christian people on what really worldliness means and its implications on lives and churches.
It has been a blessing to many and i am in the process of translating it.
Interesting but... The Pope visiting the USA this week standing under: 'In God We Trust' as politicians fawn over and professing Christians hero worship...surely THE MAN OF SIN deceives even those who are 'believers' today rather than looking for some atheistic future man?
Wycliffe, Tyndale, Luther, Calvin, Cranmer; in the seventeenth century, Bunyan, the translators of the King James Bible and the men who published the Westminster and Baptist confessions of Faith; Sir Isaac Newton, ...Whitefield, Jonathan Edwards; and more recently Charles Spurgeon, J.C. Ryle and Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones; these men among countless others, all saw the office of the Papacy as the antichrist. - Michael de Semlyen, All Roads Lead to Rome, p. 205, 1991
'There is no other head of the Church but the Lord Jesus Christ. Nor can the Pope of Rome, in any sense, be head thereof; but is that Antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalts himself, in the Church, against Christ and all that is called God." - Original Westminster Confession of Faith 25:6
Regretful considerations One of the marks of Neo-evangelicalism is the distribution of God‚Äôs precepts in a scale of importance according to a secularised set of values, instead of holding every precept of God on the same value to be obeyed.
We read that ‚ÄúThe LORD ‚Ä¶. will ‚Äėmagnify‚Äô the law, and make it ‚Äėhonourable‚Äô.‚ÄĚ Isaiah 42
Instead the church has endeavored to ‚Äėminimize‚Äô the law of God to make it ‚Äėdisposable‚Äô.
How believers see Christ A most encouraging exposition of Scripture. The just shall live by faith.Would love to hear your congregation singing .I have your hymn book.many years ago I came to your church to hear William Hendriksen. IT must be over 30yrs ago. Your ministry has been much blessed.
THE STATE OF TODAY'S CHURCH WAS PROPHESIED !! We are witnessing emerging at an alarming speed THE FALSE CHURCH -- THE CHARMING HARLOT (Revelation 17:5)--the organized system of world attitudes and behaviors that is under Satan‚Äôs control infiltrating the church and overtaking it with lies. Many of the popular, highly regarded pastors today are "angels of light" who are perverting the gospel of Christ. They substitute for it inclusiveness, universal salvation, and a complete release from accountability. This DEFECTING FROM THE TRUTH CHURCH has been in full swing for over 50 years. It is the apostate church spoken of in 2 Thess. 2:3-4. It is the church on whom God‚Äôs wrath shall fall because of her ‚Äúfalling away‚ÄĚ from The Truth. She has fallen for the old intoxicating spell of the devil ‚Äď- ‚Äúyou can disobey God and you will not die!‚ÄĚ It‚Äôs the same lie that the serpent told Eve in the Garden of Eden. Contending for The Faith carries the risks of being labeled intolerant or divisive. I‚Äôve experienced both family and friends (who are members of apostate churches) to so label me and cut off all contact with me. Jesus warned us to count the cost of following Him (Luke 14:25-35). Best to be a soldier for Christ than to hear Him say, ‚ÄúI never knew you.‚ÄĚ
Great Sermon! A wonderful sermon eloquently detailing the virtues the apostle says are to be added to our faith.
It was illuminating to hear the distinction made between love for the those in Christ and love for non-believers.
A must listen, and listen again!
