Great Sermon! Matthew 13:37-40 KJV
 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;  The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one ;  The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.  As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
As always Jesus was right. This artical goes hand in hand with what I just studied this morning. So glad I'm not a tare.
These preachers that are taking this evil side of politics are proving jesus' words correct again in Luke 21
Luke 21:8 KJV
 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.
They claim to follow Jesus and say Jesus is the Christ but yet they themselves are deceiving many. Probaby beleive in the time is near in the pre-trib belief aswell. Yet Jesus clearly said to go not therefore after them.
Heartbreaking Report The white racist media have no problems hammering away at Obamaâ€™s lack of discernment of what is and what is not terrorism. Why donâ€™t they hammer away at the issues concerning Christians being murdered worldwide? They stood back when genocide was clearly evident in Sudan. Now we have thousands of girls being kidnapped, and they still are not making it an important issue. The media spends more time vilifying the president and his policies than any other issue. So why do we even tune in to Fox news, etc.; without bringing them to task? Donâ€™t they know that Islamist see Americans and many other non-Islamic countries as being Christian? Their goal is to wipe them off the face of the earth.
We have got to stand together in bringing the Boko Haram beasts to justice. What pressure can we put on the media?
Great Sermon! Thanks pastor Joey and pastor David. I really enjoy all that y'all share here on sermon audio. Thank for having the backbones to discuss the worlds sensitive subjects/topics when most of our countries leaders seem to just turn their heads.
not ignorant III A-This is a difficult question and varies based on each unique situation but I think the Church often times does too much preaching to the choir and needs to focus more on relationships, knowledge is essential yes but the body cannot be the body with Sunday morning, Sunday night, and Wednesday night service where we drop off our kids and go sit and listen.
not ignorant II Q-authors and languages A-Our Bible was written by over 40 men during a period of time of about 1500 years and in 3 different languages(Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek)
Q-inspiration and canonization
A-The 40 men although some were spoken to directly from God most where inspired by the Holy Spirit to write what they did but maintained their own perspective on some of what was written in the Bible.
The Canonization of the New Testament began happening rather quickly in the early Church and the word "Canon" is a way of measuring and or validating letters written to be inspired. Part of the measurement was its connection to the Old Testament , the writings ability to change or saves souls, and its broad acceptance by the collective body of the New Testament Church.
The Old Testament was accepted as it was written starting with the Torah and as time went on the addition of writings was accepted by the collective leadership of Israel.
Q- how much time between Malachi and Matthew
not ignorant Q-how we got 66 books
Answer-This is lengthy response but it is answered in how the Old and New Testament were canonized but the Old Testament was not necessarily ordered by the Jews as we order it in our Bible. The New Testament is 4 Gospels written by two disciples and two witnesses, the rest of the new testament are letters written to the various Churches with the exception of Hebrews which is believed to be a series of sermons. But the entire narrative of the Old and New Testament is one Big story of God loving and redeeming a lost people who need him.
Great Sermon! I really enjoyed this. You made some fantastic points. My best friend is a beautiful Christian sister who is an ex lesbian and her testimony of how the Lord redeemed her out of that lifestyle is powerful.
Great Sermon! This article is a sign of our times. But really the same as all times. 1 Corinthians chapter 2 speaks clearly as to why this writer and many others will continue to stand against the simple faith in the authenticity of the Bible as the Word of God. Understanding and pity of where this man is in his spiritual condition is what is needed.
Great Sermon! Great preaching & teaching! I was trying ro listen while shoveling snow & had ro keep stopping because i didn't want ro miss a word. It is a message that i will also listen to again to keep reminding myself. Great message for all. May God continue to bless your heart passions & ministries!
Small Groups As someone who helps a lot in the ministries (teaching Sunday School and also teaching Awana) I have thought about starting a Small Group. I believe it would be a great time to fellowship, for the kids to fellowship, and to "break bread" together at our own homes. I do not get interaction with adults on Sundays or Wednesdays because I am helping kids, and honestly I won't go to a women's study because I don't want to throw my own kids in nursery yet again. Yes the Word should be divided, but there should also be fellowship. I feel I make no difference sitting in a pew 3 times a week. I feel like there should be a shorter message and then fellowship on Sunday evening (even dinner--breaking bread). Possibly then a community could be built. Why not throw meat into Sunday morning? The Holy Spirit is the one who provides understanding. He never said "preach watered down sermons so people get it." I don't believe that is what Jesus did when he stood in the synagogues. Nor what He taught His disciples. Just preach and the Holy Spirit will do the rest.
As a church that believes in a voting body what happens when that body decides they want small groups and not Sunday school? How would pastoral leadership deal with this because small groups do allow for flexible times to assemble? Is there a difference between a small group and a woman's bible study? Do we scrutinize the materials used in these "small groups?"
