Great Sermon! I listened to this sermon last night. It was fascinating. I wish I could have had this as a reference way back when the DV Code craze was running amok. I would be interested to hear his thoughts on any of the newer crazes going around.
Great Sermon! Years ago I used to read the news for Billy Graham on his radio station in N. C. I began to see how he had compromised and when he was appearing at a Crusade in St Louis, Mo. in 2001 I went to his press conference and ask a question, I said, "Dr Graham, Jesus said in John 15:19 that his followers would be hated by the world but each year I would see the most popular lists, his name was at or near the top. I asked him, "how was this possible?" He replied, "well, it's not that way all over the world." I had laid out a fleece to the Lord. I had said, "Lord, if he asks me why I think that is? I will reply by saying, "The Billy Graham of 1948 used to say that the three greatest threats to our country were Communism, Catholicism and Islam would THAT Billy Graham be at the top of the lists? He never asked so I didn't but I believed the point had been made. It's so sad. We can all learn a lesson from that. It's never easy being a John the Baptist or say things that Jesus said in Matthew 23 but rebuking and exhorting is a lost art in the Christian church today but that is why many are departing from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits and looking for teachers that will itch their ears.
Great Sermon! As a young bride my in laws sent us to Rome in the hopes I would convert... Years later I still remember feeling embarrassed by the homosexual art...so I made this movie... I praise the Lord for men like you who still speak out about Sodom . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0T5jNIY-7A
Reasons for gratefulness. Being grateful for the faithfulness of God and for His salvation. All the blessings we received here are only the first fruits of the blessings God will give us in eternity!
Responsibility of every Christian. It is true: the only prerequisite for personal evangelism is not special gifts, but being saved. All children of God are called to speak to unsaved people about the Savior. We need submission to the command of the Lord, faith, courage and love for the Lord and for the lost.
Great Sermon! Rev. Brown, you indeed are a mighty, strong voice of encouragement in the midst of minor persecution in our western culture. We appreciate you as teacher of sound theology, and sanity amidst some of the depraved, religious, minds of our day who are enemies of the cross. The early Reformers who have given their lives smile upon men such as you who remain strong in the faith while preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and the foundational truths of those early days of the Early Reformation. Thank-you for standing "unashamed" for the truth of salvation by grace through faith, plus nothing but the blood of Jesus. The Church continues because GOD has kept amongst us this day such who hold out GOD sacred Word.
