I commend you for maintaining a firm stand for the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord gave us Holy Scripture so we can know Him- follow Him-obey Him. It is NOT a book of guidelines or suggestions, but commands. These men of the Grace Brethren fellowship are seriously compromising the narrow path of Christ and SHOULD be exposed for it. Far too many churches in our day just want to push the "easy button" so they will be popular with everyone... How sad! I will be praying for their repentance. I am truly blessed to be a part of ONE church that refuses to compromise - and honored to have a Pastor with the courage and backbone to stand firmly in God's Truth and call heresy for what it is!! Thank you, Pastor Chuck
Pastor O'Neal, congratulations on leaving that fellowship! You can know with certainty that our Lord Jesus Christ would not want His name on that liberal, Christ-minimizing, pope-promoting, ecumenical mess that is the new Grace Brethren Fellowship!! You can stand tall with the African Anglican churches that left their "fellowships" over women bishops and homosexuality promotion. We need more Pastors that will stand for the Gospel!
What a horrible thing you've endured! I've read a few "spiritual abuse" blogs. They may contain a few actual "victims" but what these women did to your church is truly sick. And to pretend they are abused while they falsely report you for crimes means they're completely hardened. I've never seen Christians act that way. I hope other churches are paying attention to this attack on your church. I have a feeling we'll be seeing more like it.
To the good Pastors and Teachers and Godly men who have so graciously left our broken, beaten down church a kind Google review: God bless you! I cried today and I had almost stopped being able to cry after living through these last few years. It is the Lords work and I am speechless! Thank you!!!
I am a Corporal in the United States Marine Corps and currently serving in Afghanistan working closely with the military (and some civilians) of this country. I am very strong in my Christian faith and I've been raised in a Godly home and a great church! With that said, this blog says "We must speak the truth in love!" I see nothing but hate for the Muslim community in this blog. I agree that we need to be a light to those who don't know Christ. However, we can't, and shouldn't, shove our belief in God down anyone's throat! If you read the first few chapters of Luke, you'll see that Jesus tells his followers to leave a place if they are unwanted. Jesus Himself had to escape from his own home town because they were leading Him up a cliff to throw him off!
My whole point is this: Instead of ordering people to repent of their sins, do what Jesus did and love His people, no matter their background, beliefs, lifestyle, or religion. Jesus preached with authority, grace and most importantly, love! If you can show someone love in all matters, that allows the Holy Spirit to move on them and change them. We are told by Jesus to preach the good news, not to change one's heart!
I love the passion you have on this matter, but it comes off at hateful.
Jason, there is something you should know if you call yourself a Christian.
The Mosaic Law is a fundamental part of the Christian Faith. Its the Law that God writes on the hearts of his people. The constant stream of hearing Gods most Holy Name taken in vain is distressful for us, so dont expect to change our minds about this movie because you found a good wordly moral. While our Liberty in Christ allows us to partake in Seafood, we are still called to remember the basis for that law. The basis of removing ourselves from the unclean(like this movie) While our Liberty in Christ allows us to wear mixed fabric clothing, we still remember the basis for that law. The basis of santification, keeping ourselves seperated from wordliness or those that love the world more than they Love God.
This movie, like the bat in the Mosaic Law, is an abomination
No Christian 'hopes' that any go to hell, on the contrary. Go and read I Corinthians 6: 9-11 and consider 'such WERE some of you' in that context. There is still hope for sinners- see I Timothy 1: 15.
Jesus knows all about YOU Muscari and His word: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
NUNEZ says; "Not ONCE does Jesus even mention homosexualiy"
Jesus did say; Matt 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."
The law says; Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
Conclusive proof of Jesus position in that He agrees with His Father that homosexuality is an abomination.
Also Romans Chapter 1:18 - 27 describes homosexual practice as subject to the wrath of God upon a people who reject the Word of God.
How great that Grafted In was here to back up the pastor. Pastor Chuck is a great example of why I don't attend a church that doesn't understand that "seek and ye shall find" doesn't mean to sit in a pew every time the doors are unlocked and follow the words of a human man. I'm no Pharisee. Jesus walks with me every second of my life - even when I make mistakes. Quick! Delete this message! I forgive you for your lack of courage, and so does Jesus. Your Pharisee behavior probably doesn't make Him smile with glee, though. Peace.
***Isn't it funny how those leading "destructive lives" aren't the ones who raise a fuss about other people's lives***
No it isn't funny, friend, to see sinful men reveling in or countenancing the wicked perversion of others. I much prefer this Christian Pastor who has a burden to see sinners (those leading "destructive lives")come to a true knowledge and saving faith in His precious redeemer...our lovely Lord Jesus Christ, than some one who rants about freedom of speech but can't tolerate Christian TRUTH. The destructive life will lead to eternal destruction, but you won't even make a fuss or a squeak?

BTW That is the view of this website sermonaudio.com not the Pastor.
That is the trouble of the internet. Anonymous mice who hide behind a keyboard spouting what they could never say face to face in a manly way. Freedom of speech is best served anoy mouse ly?
Great Sermon! Thanks for the encouraging word Nina. May God grant a revival of evangelistic zeal to the church of Jesus Christ. The armies of Islam are taking over the earth through violence, intimidation, and bold declaration of Muslim dogma. Christ's army must respond with grace and bold Gospel truth publicly and house to house. To God (Yahweh -Father, Son, & Holy Spirit) be the glory!
Great Sermon! Thankyou for your courage in exposing this religion and the violence which its sacred texts promote. It is a religion we should never have allowed to be practiced in our countries and we will all regret the day we allowed it. One never hears peaceful Muslims speaking out against the violence of the murderers. They cant because the murders in their faith are being obedient to the Koran and Allah. I find it disturbing that there are no ex muslims only lapsed ones. Thats because they cant leave the faith on pain of death.
If you leave the faith and convert the Koran says you should be killed.It is a religion based on fear and violence.I can see the day when those who love Jesus will have to die for the right to be able to worship him freely. Islam is not compatible with freedom. It stands against everything we hold dear.Just look at the persecution and execution of Christians in Islamic countries. Why does the world's media turn a blind eye to this. Thats whats coming to us once they get into government.God bless you Pastor Chuck and keep you safe.
Pastor Chuck: Here I am in 2009 reviewing your work and passing along deep appreciation for your hard work. FGBC and specifically the Pacific Northwest Ministerium are sorely lacking without your presence. There are many of us who have not bowed the knee to Baal, and we continue to battle. We would be so pleased and aided if you would return. In the meantime your continued contributions to the cause of truth (the Bible, the whole Bible and nothing but the Bible) via your preaching, blog and just your life are deeply appreciated. This is to say Thanks, brother. I love you. Your brother, Paul
Great Sermon! God bless your brave soul for trying to reach the Jehovah's Witnesses with the gospel of Jesus Christ!
Unfortunately, they all probably thought you were a demon-possessed madman, but I pray you planted some good seeds that the Holy Spirit will use to bring them home.
While I agree with this post, what is the difference between the witchcraft/magic used in Harry Potter vs Disney films like Cinderella, and Chronicles of Narnia? For one, Chronicles of Narina is highly accepted within the Christian media.
