Great Sermon! Very interesting. Enjoyed listening.Thanks for being so honest and encouraging. Marrige is always under attack and today divorce and problems has become "normal". My husband and I married young and this year we have our 28 anniversary. Many of our friends are divorced and in their second or third marriage.Always brings sadness to my heart when so think about it.How come we have made in and not them..? All glory to God who has kept our hearts together. Please continue this conversation. I would like to hear a little about your thoughts on how to deal with young Godly adult children who lives at home...
Have blessed day all you who read this??
Great Sermon! What he needs is to feel ashamed.
I would not even allow my child to go into a public restroom anymore. They will either go before or after we leave any restaurant or public event.
It is hard to pray seriously thinking of how foolish and comical this is.
I understand that it is there choice as to which public restroom they want to use. Will they have a choice of which jail cell they'll be "bar"red from?
Yes, let the days be shortened for evil doers; from the presidency down to the blatantly rebellious. And Lord, keep us, your redeemed, from the evil one.
Bruce Jenner's twisted thoughts How do we respond to this as Christians? It's really simple, I think. Bruce Jenner has likely spent thousands of dollars pumping himself with hormones, and being made to look like a woman with the help of the surgeon's hand. While wanting to be born again as a woman, the irony is that he simply needs to meet the truth of the Gospel, and be born again spiritually, and all of his twisted thoughts about himself will be straightened out by the truth of God. It really is that simple. Can we not pray for his soul, brothers? Can we not also defend God's honor and speak the truth in love, that what Bruce Jenner has done is contra-God? Defend God's honor and pray for Bruce Jenner. Defend God's honor and call this act of ungodliness exactly what it is: ungodliness. We're not to stand silent and allow God's honor to be walked upon like everything is alright, because it's not alright. Pray fervently. -- Rob
Great Sermon! Fantastic. This would be a great class for all soon to be married and newly married couples to take; not to mention couples married for years. Communication is an act of love. It tells your husband/wife that what they feel physically/emotionally is important to you.
Thank you for bringing up the topic of focussing on the proper presentation of sex. It is a wonderful gift given to us by God to be enjoyed, in its proper context. Teach your children it is something to be anticipated, in marriage. This is a wonderful gift to share with their spouse within the safety of the marriage bed.
Thank you for pointing out the evil of pornography. This world has just glossed it over and said, "It's not hurting anybody." Yes it does. It desensitizes the mind, it trains you to look at another "Image barer" and value them as a piece of meat to use for your gratification. Thank you again for bringing up this delicate subject.
Great Sermon! Last comment on this subject and we can move on
Agora- the market place
Matt 13:44 Agorazo (G59) means to buy
exagorazo (G1805) to redeem.
Redeem- By payment of a price to recover from another
exagorazo is not used in Matt 13:44 it is only used 4 times, Gal 4:5 Gal 3:13 Eph 5:16 and Col 4:5
Reply to Alfred's strange interpretation To suggest that there is a difference between "buying" something and "redeeming" something borders on ridiculous. I recommend listening to the Bible message preached Wednesday. If you got on here, once again, to combat Scripture with a system, please shop elsewhere.
Great Sermon! The treasure in the field(world) is the church, the true Jew, the Israel of God Ex 19:4-5, the lost tribes, Jer 31:5-12 the gospel, Col 1:25-27, Jesus bought this field, Phil 2:5-8 and the treasure hidden inside it. He bought the whole field, but did not redeemed the whole field. There is a difference in buying something and redeeming something. There is wheat and tares in this field, Jesus only redeems the wheat, not the tares. Wheat never becomes tares and tares never become wheat. There you have limited atonement in Matt 13 paparables.
Great Sermon! men need to remember that we don't look the same as we did at 20 or 25. We get fat, lose our hair, have bad breath, don't brush our teeth.
Our wife will age, just as we do; she will not look the same at 40 or 50 like she did at 25.
Why do we place this burden on our wives?
Men, do your wives a favor and take a look in a mirror- take a shower, put on some cologne, brush your teeth, take care of yourself and workout, loose some weight yourself.
Please learn to love and appreciate your wife for who she is and what she does for you. Learn to talk to your wife and develop an emotional intimacy with her, not just a physical one.
Sorely needed David,
Excellent popcast. I was one of those "cultural christians". I trusted in the god I had made. It was my own righteousness I trusted. I wanted to hear nothing about the God of the Bible. My god allowed me to continue in my sins and never held me accountable for anything.
I agree with you. The Church today is in dire need of purging. From the prosperity gospel to the feelings driven nonsense spouted by IHOP; and the much more dangerous, borderline christianity found in a significant number of churches in the South. The ones who have exchanged the Gospel of Christ for one based in political conservatism then throws in a check list, loosely taken from Scripture, on how to improve your life. The latter is the one that scares me the most. Their scripture is the daily publication of the Wall St Journal and their god is the conservative government they aspire to build. In these churches, there is no place for Christ.
Continue to call us back to the True Gospel David. Again, excellent podcast.
Great Great Sermon! Pastor, I really can't tell you what a blessing this message was to me... the Holy Spirit has pricked my heart by this, and has driven me to strive to be even more holy, no matter how hard the struggle is.
Behind closed doors is so important, people may not see, but He does!
Thanks for this!
Reply to Alfred Thanks for stopping in again, Alfred. Could you ask your question again? I don't understand what you mean by "would the world already under condemnation, but not yet judged or he that believeth not is condemned...
Please help me out here, brother.
Great Sermon! I am trying to absorb what you have said. Would the world already under condemnation, but not yet judged or he that believeth not is condemned already, but not yet judged. Would these verses also be a process of the age. All these will come to come pass at the end of the age. Help me out.
