Great Sermon! Its hard to know how to approach this. In days gone by there wasn't such a wide variety of "Christians" on the planet. There are true believers and all others. I think the "all others" are probably a vast majority of all "Christians" on the planet today. So what true believers end up having to do is defend themselves for the actions of "all others". And it is a big problem. True believers need to really work hard to draw that line between themselves and all others so the world can see that there really really really is a difference. Right now the world can't seem to see it.
Must talk about this! I have a friend that is a counselor and counsels many men with sexual addictions. He has told me that in almost every case of porn addiction it will eventually lead to homosexuality or bisexualism or pedophilia. Let me repeat almost ALWAYS. So as we as a society continue down this road of immoral behavior these perversions will become more and more prevalant. And what does the LBGT community do with that fact? Because most of these individuals were strait as an arrow before falling prey to the porn addiction. Kind of blows a hole in the "born with it" argument.
Great Sermon! I agree that this is topic is a slippery slope indeed, and perhaps inclining into a cliffhanger...... God is perfect and not only would he make someone of this kind.He can't. All of the human race is born into sin, cause we live in a fallen world. I was an alcholic/drug addict, lived like the world,etc.. until 5 yrs ago at 39, I was saved. By the Grace of God,I haven't been tempted since,but I know many saved people that are still tempted to pick up a drink, but don't because they have chosen not too..... we're not sinners cause we sin. We sin. cause we're sinners..... If we don't come to Christ,and surrender our whole life to Him, we may not act on the temptation for a while, but if no salvation though the Saviour, we're fair game to Satan.. Other people can't save us, they're sinners to. And our own will power is not at all to be trusted.
Great Sermon! I think as double minded as it sounds we have two separate problems here that require us to approach this in two different ways. The first is hold government accountable for this mess in the voting booth. And the second is to flood these children with love and compassion that is required by our Christ centered outlook. Face it we are (in the big picture) going down a road that is terrible and irreversible from a leadership perspective. So in the midst of that darkness the light can shine brighter than ever. Perplexing to the max. But God is even in control of this. Great discussion.
Great Sermon! I completely agree with you. We stopped buying certain food products, shopping and dining at certain places because we do not want to support those places who support the alternative life style. As those who choose to support it that is their money and choice. But as for me and my house we choose to use Gods money else where.
Great Sermon! Look out 25 to 50 years. I can see people that call themselves Christians behaving in the same way as these Muslims are now. There is already a huge gulf in the liberal vs conservative arena to the point that conservatives are construed as extremists. Also remember the line of cr lies that we were fed during the 9/11 period that the Muslims living in theUS were "peace loving". Sometimes its best to just sit back and watch the truth of reality rise out of the lies.
Great Sermon! I hate to seemingly race bait, but I must comment on the person who suggested that slavery in America wasn't all bad. I'm sorry but you absolutely can never say that and be taken seriously. Just because some slaves happened to get some education doesn't discount all the horrors of that period in our history. Furthermore someone on the program stated that churches back then weren't regenerated or saved. How convenient of a statement!! Naturally they thought they were in the right. Man, only certain type of people continue to make these kind of blind statements
Great Sermon! I don't agree with him suing the church. However, I want to share with you what happened to an ex-Muslim in our church. He did confess his conversion and you know what the result was? Muslims killed his Muslim sister..
Right on point The difference is there are many "professing" Christians, but only a few whose nature has been changed by God - meaning they are the genuine Christians. You will know them by their fruit. So to be clear, "professing" Christian husband and "professing" Christian wife.
