Great Sermon! Rebirth implys a pattern change, from continues status of sin, to a desire to righteousness; This verse does not mean we Christians never sin in perfection, but rather means a correct direction shift. --Thanks alot for the message.
Great Sermon! A really good two part message. Thank you. I know that salvation is of God and I know without a doubt that my belief in the absolute truth of God's Word is all of Him. In addition, I know it is all God's work in me because I do not have the power to disbelieve Bless God in the highest in Christ Jesus.
Great Sermon! Jesus reaffirmed every one of the 10 Commandments, except the commandment on the Sabbath. Yes, he observed it, but he was the fulfillment of the law at the Crucifixion. The Sabbath was for the Jews specifically, read Exodus. Paul himself stated that some people esteem one day, others no day. Lastly, if you are thinking you are justifying yourself by the â€śLawâ€ť, then you have to live according to ALL the laws, not just the ones you want to. Do you even know what the rules regarding observing the Sabbath included? Itâ€™s not just saying â€śI go to church on Saturdayâ€ť. If you live by the law, you will be judged by the law. We are justified by grace, not the law.
Galatians 4:21 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?
Colossaians 2 16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
sabbath Hi John. I usually enjoy listening to your messages, but this one scared me. You listed all the pharisees extra rules that Jesus did away with, he never did away with the Sabbath because it was written in stone for a perpetual covenant. God does not change. Nowhere does he say to keep the Sabbath on the first day and he taught his disciples to keep sabbath. Emperor Constantine enforced Sunday worship with a sword, Satan's greatest victory yet. You have taught me a lot about studying my bible and I thank God for that. This is the student giving the teacher gentle reproof. 'In vain do you worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men' All the commandments apply today or none of them.
Great Sermon! I love this sermon! Thank you so much. I have listened to it so many times, I can quote it perfectly. And each tome I listen to it, I get something new :) again, thank you! This has helped me SOOOOOOO much!
Great Sermon! You have just been looking at the wrong places. Dr. Macarthur's sermons are easily available, 100s of them at his ministry's website: http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons. I listened to over a hundred sermons of his a year or two ago- in one or two months. It is a treasure of biblical truth and a marvelous resource for students of scriptures.
Great Sermon! This really impacted me. I've never before seen God's call as a summons much less a summons into the presence of God. Also I'd not seen that verse you quoted on the gospel being a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to gentiles but to the called the power of God unto salvation as a verse for assurance of salvation. In a sense one would be assured of their salvation seeing the gospel and desth of Christ as such. Think I'm seeing that in a kosha manner. Thank you. Moving on to part rwo.
Great Sermon! It's the first time I have heard such a truthful account on the Catholic believe! Praise God for your courage to tell the truth. My wife who is a x catholic and now after your sermon a true believer that she left a fake Gospel.
Thank You and Praise God for your courage!
Required for entering the Kingdom ...unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God...CORINTHIANS 6:9-11
; "Repent ye, and believe the gospel."â€”Mark 1:15 ;
John the Reformed Baptist did not wink at sin. For Herod ... bound him in prison for Herodiasâ€™ sake, his brother Philipâ€™s wife: for he had married her. For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brotherâ€™s wife. Mark 6:17-18
To Consider ds wrote: "It appears to me that many christians will not enter the kingdom because they trusted not in the plain meaning of scripture"
Is this what is required for entering the kingdom? I thought it was all who believe on the Lord Jesus and look to him in faith. I did not know a misinterpretation or misunderstanding of Scripture (which I am not saying this sermon represents) would be that which takes one from being in Christ to being out of Christ. This sounds nothing short of works-based "righteousness" or legalism.
Sin is sin and it must be repented of by every believer and confessed. But ds would do well to realize that many theologians would strongly disagree with his calling his position on this teaching (i.e. divorce/remarriage) the "plain meaning of scripture."
Finally, it is quite wrong to qualify as "winking at sin" the preacher's position on this subject. He has a position right or wrong but it is not a wink but his sincere understanding of the subject.
Great Sermon? Romans 7:2 Is speaking to remarriage while the first husband is still living. She is an adulteress if she remarries while her husband lives. Also in 1 Corinthians 7:11 says she should remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband(Paul says, he is still her husband). He also goes on to say, in v39, she can remarry if her husband be dead. It appears to me that many christians will not enter the kingdom because they trusted not in the plain meaning of scripture. You don't have to look very far, these days, to find a church that will wink at almost any sin that suits you. ds
