I pray that God is so very close to you during this time and that you feel His presence near to you. Know also that their are many angels around you too. I also pray for continued success with your church efforts.
Great Sermon! I listen to this sermon just about once a week. It has helped and is helping me to become the steadfast Christian I ought to be. Whoever reads this I ask you to pray for me. Things are tough at the moment but I ask God not to ease my load, for in these times I become stronger. I thank and love Francis Chan for being the servant of God he is and for helping me through the hard times of my life.
Great Sermon! I just needed to tell you that this is the exact same sermon word for word as the one entitled "your Adversary the Devil". I know that I've heard the correct one before. It really is one of the best. I wanted to hear it again. Just letting you know. ¬į
I've actually seen this before, the mistake, that is, and just believed that the devil didn't want anyone to hear the correct sermon. But,....
important question Around minute 18 you said that people weren't an accident, and that they weren't in that room by accident. That God determined when you were born, where you were born, where you would live..."
So my question is: did God also determine that I would be in my neighbors house alone the night he molested me?
This isn't an angry rhetorical question. I've been a christian for 25 years but I have new questions and I'm seeking answers.
I've been taught we live in a fallen world, there is free will, sin of man etc. But what is divine and what isn't? If nothing is an accident, then was my abuse planned? Or allowed? If God COULD HAVE stopped it (and we are told he is ALL POWERFUL) then why didn't He? Does he EVER stop sin? If no, then why do we pray asking for mercies? Does He ever protect us if we pray for protection?
As I wrestle with these questions my faith is wavering.
Outstanding This is so captivating, brilliant, brilliant message with lots of illustrations, stories, etc. Very gospel focused; outstanding, one of Keith's very best. A huge blessing to listen to. Thank you brother.
