To Donnell: My dear Donnell...Lance is correct. Were it not for the celebration of the Holy Mass every day, the world in its wickedness WOULD certainly have destroyed itself long ago. The Roman Catholic Church plainly teaches that Christ's sacrifice of Calvary was once and for all. Please keep in mind, however, that God is not limited by time nor space. Time was created by God for humanity. God is always present in the Eternal Now. Christ is always present to the Father in heaven presenting His sacrifice to the Father for our salvation. In the Holy Mass, we participate in the SAME sacrifice of Calvary. Christ is not sacrificed AGAIN; Christ does not die AGAIN. Christ died once. And yet, miraculously, Christ allows us to participate with Him in the self-same sacrifice of Calvary when we participate in the Mass. Miraculous? Yes. Mystical? Yes. Beyond human understanding? Yes. Requiring true faith? Absolutely.
Great Sermon! Fantastic sermon. What every Christian needs to hear the truth of the sufficency of Christ in all aspects of Christian life and the reality that we are fighting from the winning side. Praise God
Great Sermon! Church history has a thread of tongues right from the first century to the 21st century, including Dr Martyn LLoyd-Jones & John Wesley.
These signs shall follow them that believe (not doubt!).

I pray that the Lord will continue to bless you and that you will see many won to Christ
God bless you, Dick Grow
Great Sermon! Tozer said something like this: If a movie of Christ does not inspire worship it is in vain, but if it does inspire worship it is idolatory. People have the mental image of the person who prtrayed Christ in their mind as they worship so they are not worshipping Christ.
I read somewhere that Jim Cavaziel went to Mexico after making the film and people there were kissing his hands and falling down in front of him asking him to pray for them. They treated him as though he actually was Jesus!
Jesus Himself would say, He who has ears to hear because God chose the foolishness of preaching to save those who are lost. He never once said He who has eyes to see.
A great opening to this series Pastor Lyle in this opening sermon to this series on the Revelation lays out the foundation and course of this study from a futurist interpretation. Faithfully he keeps his focus on what the text says and avoids speculation.
The Western Leg of Romanism Rome divided between west and east...the two legs of the image in Daniel 2. This sermon focus' on the western leg...of Romanism that is one part of Mystery Babylon. Pastor Lyle lays out evidence that Romansim meets the identification of the Scarlet Woman.
Resonse to one comment only. "This movie is straight from the pit of Hell"
The movie has a few implied roman catholic shots and elaborations that last what 1 minute in total, and are not even verbal! but there is nothing YOU or any of your protestant friends could have put together that would have come out any better I guarantee it. LET ME GUESS, IF YOU DID EVEN TRY YOUR LAME ATTEMPT you would no doubt put some pre trib rapture, dispensationalist, speaking in tongues, Sunday sabbath, arminian, etc. other protestant heresy slant to it .
I wouldn't go to any catholic church, but neither would I go to most protestant churches now EITHER, and NEITHER would their movies be better, look at all the MORONIC heretical so called "evangelical" movies nowadays, I would send people to see Passion ten times more then I would tell them to go see one of these moronic evangelical movies.
Oh, and from your comment, I am sure you don't watch any tv, read any fiction, listen to any radio, see any plays, nor would you for it would all be from the pit of hell compared to this vaguely tainted movie. Or are you the hypocrite?
Great Sermon! Excellent message!!! God bless you for your uncompromised preaching of the truth of this unbiblical, Roman Catholic movie. It's sad that so many "evangelicals", especially the Southern Baptist Convention, endorses this movie.
Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. (John 5:39)
The "real" passion is found only in the Word of God--not in some movie.
Great Sermon! This sermon will draw the heart of the christian closer to the Lord. Praise God for such excellent exhortation! It is time to spend more of our given moments at the feet of the Savior!God bless you Pastor Lyle!!!
