Great Sermon! This is very good, Bro. Phil. I wondered as I listened to it if where Christ calls out, "all who are weary and heavy laden, I will give you rest," is a Greek translation of
Sabbath. Such as would be I will give you Sabbath, or true Sabbath. Just wondered.
Great Sermon! These are truly sad days for the USA. With the sinful beliefs of the Supreme Court's being their reasoning for decisions, our nation gets more depraved.
Along with our nation's growing rejection of God for our future, our churches are becoming more weak and no longer preach the Gospel in Truth. We need revival if we are to survive and not face more strong judgment of God, which we already are seeing. If you're a child of God, continue to grow in The Lord, study His Word, and pray for strength for yourself and for our country.
Powerful Sermon! After listening to Phil's series on the Unpardonable Sin, it literally made me sick to see how apostasy and false teaching is taking place in our churches today. Our nation is turning against God and Jesus Christ, and is mocking the Holy Spirit. As children of God, we must study the Holy Scriptures more diligently, and pray for our nation more than ever before as we are already feeling the judgment of God taking place. With greater immorality consuming our nation, the Rapture must be getting very close. We need the strength of the Holy Spirit to live each day in this sinful world.
Great Sermon! This is a brave word that should make the Christian men out there be willing to be bold and forthright in calling out the false prophets. I am wondering, "Where are the MEN." Well, I just heard one in this sermon.
Great Sermon! This is a very thoughtfully presented sermon. The teacher's voice is winsome, and the content follows a very logical ordering of the facts. The tone is respectful but serious, without the need for sarcasm or inappropriate humor that can sometimes accompany polemic subject matter. Good work.
forgot to say... The SDA Sabbath school lessons come out of the SDA General Conference, which dictates all of what they teach everyone on Saturday mornings. The lesson booklets have lessons for adults as well as children's lesson plans. These lessons often include passages from EG White's writings written into the lesson but then does not give any citation to indicate that this is including such writings let alone where they are from. This, again, is deceptive, or at very least, sloppy writing. The SDA learners/Sabbath School attenders are misled to assume this is coming straight out of the Bible. Often SDA members will say things like Adam was over 9 feet tall, thinking it is in the Bible when in actuality it is one of EG White's "prophecies".
Great Sermon! I was brought up Seventh-day Adventist. Thankfully the Lord saved even me. It is true that it is very difficult to extricate oneself from this cult, and yes it is a cult. I heard that the man who started the Jehovah's Witnesses also came out of the Millerite movement. Seventh-day Adventism is a religion, however being saved by Jesus is a changed life not enslaved to a religion. There is a huge difference.
Great Sermon! Phil does a great job explaining the connection/relationship of Adam's sinful nature and Jesus' rightful nature and how we are overcome from death to life by the decision of God and Jesus before time began. There is nothing that we can do for salvation -- it is totally by the Grace of God and the Work of Jesus that we are accepted as righteous.
Great Sermon! Phil does a good job describing the praying life of Elijah to have God show His answer to him. And with these examples we can see how we should pray to God to know His Will and have our prayers answered. There's much good guidance for all of us.
Great Sermon! I remember when I first read this in Romans that I was astonished by the implication. I had to keep reading it over and over as I had never heard such things. I am blessed in hearing you expound it even tho it's many years hence since first hearing it. Thank you. Still astounds.
