Great Sermon! 10:30 - like the dig about Canada! Sadly your comment regarding state tyranny is true although the vast majority of the population is blinded to that fact (myself included until not too long ago).
Scattered Thoughts The sermon gave some valuable insights as to the importance of the gay marriage debate, but the various rabbit trails distracted from the core message. Topics included home schooling, the depravity of Karl Marx & Mark Twain, and Christians teaching old earth evolution. Was the main point of the sermon sovereignty vs. responsibility or was it courage in the face of opposition?
Great Encouragement! This sermon was a great encouragement to carry on in the battle for the kingdom...and continue investing in our boys to take up the torch.
Come out of her my people! It is time to heed the voice of God! He warns us not to be of the world even though we are in it. The pressure the culture is exerting upon our young people is immense. If you fail to heed the warning contained in this broadcast then you are responsible! Remember parents, you are the responsible party when it comes to the education and raising of your children. Take the helm. And don't look back!

Great Sermon! The Didache, a second-century catechism for young converts, states, "Do not murder a child by abortion or kill a newborn infant" [Didache 2.2]. Clement of Alexandria maintains that "those who use abortifacient medicines to hide their fornication cause not only the outright murder of the fetus, but of the whole human race as well" [Paedogus 2:10.96.1]. Yet the Southern Baptists Resolved in 1972 to "work for legislation that will allow the possibility of abortion." Unbelievably, the SBC still supports abortion "to save the physical life of the mother" (1999 Resolution) -- as if abortion could ever be necessary, helpful or loving to both mother and child regardless of the mother's dire medical condition. [http://www.johnstonsarchive.net/baptist/sbcabres.html] How can the SBC continue claiming to be Christian and still support abortion? In all honestly, if a denomination does not have even one formal written statement against abortion and abortifacients, how can they Biblically claim to be following Jesus? Finally, which denomination has come out loud-and-clear against the "HHS (abortifacient) Contraceptive Mandate"? Thank you for this important exhortation!
Great Sermon! Dr. Martin Luther said "sin boldly" but this flies in the face of "Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord" (Hebrews 12:14). He further wrote: "No sin will separate us from the Lamb, even though we commit fornication and murder a thousand times a day." Since justification and sanctification are a unified lifelong journey, isn't Luther's advice the worst kind of malpractice, malpractice on the soul?
Great Sermon! Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law by being cursed for us
HOW DOES MALACHI 3 APPLY TO CHRISTIANS IN THE AGE OF GRACE! I agree we should give Jesus our hearts, mind and soul but Malachi was spoken to Jews under the curse of the law, not the redeemed under grace.
Great Sermon! I have learned much from this audio sermon. One is that Paul received comfort from God with the great trial he has experienced. And this happened to him because he received grace and peace from God which is the basis of his good relationship with Him.
Kevin, your sermon message is an anointed one.
Great Sermon! I think the silly feminist movement WILL push American women into polygamous marriages because they don't know that MEN are different than women and WE NEED TO HAVE MORE MEN DISCIPLED to become husbands! they're not enough men to go around for modern women
Great Sermon! I have some good Christian friends who are Presbyterians. We can pray together and we can worship together to some degree, but we can never come together in real unity if either of us hold true to our doctrinal confessions of faith.
Wonderful message! Here is a needful word for the hearts of young men and women - a call to carefulness in matters of love, in contrast to a loose and careless world. Pastor Swanson's introduction contains a beautiful tying together of the law and gospel.
Great Sermon! Thank you for this message; it is another confirmation to what the Spirit revealed to me some time ago. It may not be popular, but it is true. Please pray for my humility as I serve the Lord. I don't want to displease him. Also please pray with me to find a church home. I liv ein Tacoma, WA. Most preaching here is centered around money and building programs. I am not against either but, something is amiss. We should be drawing closer to God through prayer and the word. I am hungry for God. I don't care about the material blessings. I had it all and it left me empty.
