Very Good! There is a great quote in this message talking about the qualifications for those "in ministry". "They are breathing and they have the time."
We live in a day when everyone THINKS they MUST have a ministry. Many churches teach exactly that. Pastor Dan does a good job exploding that wrong-headed notion.
Great Sermon! Excellent, honest, and courageous study
and stand for the truths of God's Holy
Word. Being a member of a small
Reformed Independent Baptist Church in
Southern West Virginia, I have witnessed the loss of half of the
congregation simply because the pastor
preaches the truths of election and grace alone for our salvation. Thanks
be to God for a man such as Daniel Urroz. All the sermons I have heard
have been a real blessing. Although we are on opposite sides of the US, it is so good to realize that the Lord has
reserved for Himself a few men who will teach the whole council of God.
Great Sermon! Thank you, Brother, for having the courage and taking the time/trouble/expense to put your sermons on the net. I was so grateful to tumble onto you only a fortnight ago found your series on Jude providentially when needed most. (I have been a pastor to a tiny suburban Presbyterian church congregation for the past 3 years.) Thank you for your messages on Jude. So many cofusing issues are making more sense and I have been encouraged to keep proclaiming the whole counsel of God/contending 'for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.' (Jude).
Proverbs 27/17 "As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend."
Great Sermon! Thank you!! I had the same thing happen to me before I got saved. Someone may walk up and say, Jesus loves you, He died for your sins, you need to be saved, and then just walk away and not tell you anymore!! To an unsaved person, you may as well of walked up to them, spoke a foreign language they didn't know, and walk away! Because that about how much the person accomplished by doing that. Tell them the whys and wherefores. Don't stop at one sentence. They need to hear the rest of it. We have alot of false teaching going on now days and if you don't know your Word, you will be lead astray and not know it. Study the Bible and don't just listen to everything the man in the pulpit says without checking it out. Learn HOW to study. Get a concordance and Bible dictionary and check it out. Prayerfully ask the Lord to lead you. He knows all the false is going on. I speak from experiance. I sat under a false church and school for a couple of years when I first got saved. But I checked out what they were teaching and found it to be false. Great teaching Daniel. We are looking forward to more messages on this from you if you have some. Gods blessing go with you brother, and thank you again.
Wonderful Message! Thank you for this wonderful sermon!
Some very good points are made in this message that teach the true gospel of God's wonderful sovereign grace!
Yes, salvation is of the Lord, praise
Telling it like it is Pastor Dan has documented his material well. Thank you for telling it straight and using their own source material to back up what you say. I don't know how anyone can refute the logic you use in this message.
Great Sermon! Pastor Dan does a good job dealing with the text. What does it actually say? So many are desirous of "social change" or "social activism" in our present day. Pastor Dan is correct to assert that God is wiser than we, that God's Word is sufficient and if real change is to come, it will come from the faithful preaching the Word, taking what God has said seriously and believing that His Word will make the necessary societal changes as it is applied to the hearts of individuals.
Wow, hot topic! No one wants to hear about election and reprobation, just ask the majority of Preachers out there. People don't want to hear that God is sovereign in everything. We must know the One True God to worship Him properly. This truth about God is so offensive to the natural mind but to those being saved it is most humbling.It is my prayer that more Pastors would teach these truths about God. May God be lifted high and may we be brought low.
