Great Commentary Another very insightful commentary on News in Focus. The Pen and Pulpit program is on a temporary hiatus, so I have informed the listeners in the "Pulpit Bunker" to the news commentary from Berean Baptist. And Pastor Bill knocked this one out of the park. Very interesting dialogue on this world's folly. T M S
Audio issues in this series I appreciate so much all the resources shared by this Church. It has really helped me grow over the past year, so I can't thank you enough. I say that so my comment doesn't come across rude or ungrateful. I can't hear a word being said on any sermon in this series. Of the dozens and dozens of sermons I've listened to from this church, this is the only real audio issue I've come across. I only mention this in case they might wish to take this one offline (because it truly can't be heard) or hopefully they have a better copy they could upload in its place.
Thanks so much for all you offer on sermon audio.
Great Sermon! Amazing how every word in the old and new testament speaks directly to us. Reminds me of the notes in my grandfather's Bible. Even in obscure passages in the old testament we can find treasures that go to the core of every day life. Thanks
Confused.. I thought you guys, as a church, used the KJV, but your reading of that scripture was not the same as on MY KJV...were you using the NKJV? I'm keeping the rest of my comments to myself for now...
Great Sermon! Some churches approach the meet-and-greet time like a sorority rush week, with active members (sisters) putting on a show for potential new members (rushees), especially when it comes to skit time. I thoroughly enjoyed this sermon. God bless!
Great Sermon but the title doesn't match the message The message is very informative but the title doesn't match the content.
This lecture is on the history, transmission, and inspiration of the Bible.
Great Sermon! 2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV
 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
This is our only hope as a nation!!!
Great Sermon! Blessed are ye when men shall reproach you, and persecute you, and say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets that were before you. (?Matthew? ?5?:?11-12? ASV)
Dead on! That was dead on in my book. As a black man with the fatherless childhood that plagues the community, I too feel victim to the things that landed me in detention and suspension. I've even been arrested for ditching high school many times. I joined the military and decided it would make me better. I have been called an "Uncle Tom" before, because I don't hold to the stereotypical views of my ethnicity. I don't agree with Obama and I encourage blacks to get off of the governments programs which keep most of them enslaved. While I'm black for all record, I don't have any allegiance for my skin tone. I'm human and I'm American. I pray for my brothers and sisters, but wish they'd get onboard.
Great Sermon! Pastor Sean ur so right!!!! We're so quick to Judge or question someone's salvation. If we stayed in the Bible and lined ourselves up with the words and promises within it we'd be so suprised how different we'd see ourselves muchless others. Staying faithful and exposed to Old Time Preaching and actually applying it to our lives is the key. God will do the rest. I personally just got right with God back in Sept. and hitting local revivals and being at my own church everytime the doors is open is keeping me on fire. I've deleted Facebook and become addicted to sermon audio during the week. I love what y'all are doing on here pastor sean and look forward to the future topics and all the past sermons I'm currently looking up. Thanks
Great Sermon! On Tues 11 Nov Glenn Beck did an interview on his radio program with Ravi Zacharias. Ravi has a new book about Why We Suffer? I didnt listen to the entire interview, so I am not going to comment on it. Maybe another time, but the reason for my comment is what Beck told a caller later on his show. I shouldnt be surprised, after all Beck is a mormon. The caller was troubled, I will not go into the details. Beck asked him if was prepared to stand before God. The caller pause for a moment and said no. To make it brief, Beck told him to do good things and to try to be the best he can be and this is pleasing to God. Not one time did he mentioned about how sinful and depraved we are and about the finished work of Christ. And in Christ we can be reconciled to God. Like I said earlier this is not surprising, but just confirms his Mormon faith based on works and Jesus plus.
thankful The Lord uses ANYTHING or ANYONE He chooses to convey truth, (ie Balaam, his donkey, Nebuchadnezzar Daniel 4:34&35, many demons proclaimed/announced the Christ and/or His apostles). The pope's salvation isn't the question. Did he speak truth, and a truth I praise God that has pricked my heart. I was on fire. However from seeing "Christian's" ignoring biblical teachings, to financial worries and being taken out of my comfort zone, I confess (no pun intended) I feel luke warm. The worst part is sometimes it doesn't even bother me. Please, please pray for me. Pray for all those being deceived into misplacing value.
Explanation When I said the Pope was lost I meant as we all are apart from Christ until He saves us. Jesus says in the gospel of John in ch 3 that if we have not believed we are condemned already. Jesus also spoke several parables that give the picture of an unconverted person as a lost sheep, lost coin, and a prodigal. In that since the Pope is lost. Whether he is one of the elect, I can't say that. If he dies holding on to his false doctrine not repenting then that can be said about him. I stand by my statement that he is an antichrist based on what John says in I John. The teaching based on the council of trent that whoever believes that salvation is in Christ alone apart from works let him be accursed. He has not recanted from that. Galatians is plain that Christ + works = anathema not the other way around. I can find some truth in many religions and cults. That is what makes them credible to unbelievers. The issue is a heretic who claims to speak infallibly to Christ people. If I go to church on sunday and pastor preaches a messaged based on a message from the pope and does not repent, I am outta there seeking a new place to worship. May God have mercy on us and grant us to stand for His truth no matter what the cost. I believe intense persecution is around the bend.
A Response 1. It would be wonderful if those commenting would include an email address so more correspondence could occur.
2. I doubt anything I say will be acceptable unless I were to repent and recant.
3. No one knows whether the Pope is lost or not. While we may suspect he is a hell-bound sinner because of his leadership of this false church whether he is elect of God is known only to God.
4. At this point no one can say the Pope is the 'Anti-Christ.' That is pure speculation. You may call him 'anti-Christ' if you are referring to many anti-christs but to say he is a member of the unholy trinity of the beast, dragon and anti-Christ is simply speculation until more unholy fruit is manifest. Every pope has been the 'Anti-Christ from some people's perspective.
5. Finally how can I quote from someone without considering the person? The Apostle Paul did. In Titus 1.12 Paul quotes from a false prophet. This poet or prophet is a sinner--an unbeliever--a idolater and rebellion against God but he was right when he said or wrote 'Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.' And the Pope is right when he quotes from the Word of God in Philippians 3:18 in CONTEXT. If tomorrow the Pope were to say Christians need to be kinder--more loving--charitable I would agree.
