Great Sermon! May i suggest verse memorisation. I'm in my 40s but when i attended youth class long time ago, we had to memorise verses. At 18, I knew the synoptic gospels by hard. But having backslid, I've forgotten a whole lot. I find verse memorisation to be (not the most important) but quite important. Also perhaps the Chapter-Summary method cld be combined with going thru the bible chronologically by portions. Like starting with the epistles, skip Revelation for now, go back to the Gospels, then Job - Psalms, first 5 books...etc. I'm only suggesting. Please don't think I'm dictating. If u do, please don't take offense. It's not meant to be so. I also remember recordings by u on how to study the bible a while back. We could refer to that in conjuction. And don't worry about your righteous indignation. If u want to see real righteous indignation tune in to Nancy Grace.¬†
Thanks for sharing! Hi there, over time I got really sick of sifting through all the nonsense on Facebook so I've stopped logging in. I've only logged in 3 times in the past 2 years. My account is only there for my relationship status with my wife. Now I generally only use email, skype and phone.
that's wonderful, Trevor... ...but then what do we do with those "bible students"?
Urge them to pay $160,000 for a seminary education(that might be just as faulty doctrinally), from a bunch of desk-riding Baptists who have never missed a meal, for a piece of sheepskin needed in order to interview for a pastoral or leadership opening at a mega-church?
Is this the New Testament model? Paul to Timothy?
Mortgages have to get paid at the local church and at the university, or the Christian schools K-12....if you run off the congregations, or the 20% of wealthy families who pay 80% of the bills, ummmmm....major crisis right?
Proclaim God's Word, confront sin, preach against the world, practice church discipline, or...heap to yourself teachers having itching ears, and enjoy America's BEST creature comforts and clean restrooms....quite the conundrum!!!
Thank you! I cant wait! This is so relevent! The American church is doing a horrible at teaching and equipping thier saints. We need a change. Join Pastor Hammack and learn how to study the bible. it will be worth it!
to Winston I see your point Winston, but its only a waste of time if you chose to use it in certain manners. I use Facebook to spread the Gospel, and to share sermons and articles. Yiu would be surprised at how many lost souls will respond with questions, or ask for more info. We hold the power to how we use social media. Unfortunately, it can be a tool for spreading falsehoods, and for slandering. We just have to regulate how we use it.
Fascinating Well, this might not work for anyone n hence just a useless piece of comment...but i'm the type of person who eschew things which are popular. I refuse to use facebook bec it's popular, i refused to use skype for a long time bec everyone's using it but in the end i'm forced to open an acc for work, i refuse to use twitter bec it's so popular and in fact i still don't really know what twitter is. Pardon to those who use these things but they seem almost a waste of time to me. This clip abt facebook is fascinating info. I was unaware facebook users posted mundane silly stuff about themselves n fight online until i heard your podcasts on it.¬†And now i'm more determined than ever not to use facebook :)
Great Sermon! I'm your regular podcast listener and I just want to let you know my dear brother in beloved since you're open and honest I related to you more and I know now I'm not the only one feeling this way I thank you soooo much ! Keep it up. You mean a lot to me & my family Trevor!!

Great Sermon! I am guilty, and terribly ashamed, that my love for others seem to get colder thru the years. I can only attribute it to my backsliding and my attempts to numb my emotions from nasty colleagues and the likes so that at times, if I see someone in pain, my emotions are automatically blocked to it. Do not feel bad about your feelings toward others. You are many many many many many, a zillion....more times better than I. When u talk about people in pain, I can hear your compassion and love that emanates from your heart. With regard to those like me, whose love has grown cold, only the Holy Ghost can help us regain love for one another. As for loving my enemies, that is an impossibility for me, unless I walk in the Spirit. Also, I find none of your programmes embarassing at all. They are very informative, esp when i hardly watch the telly. More important, I learn a lot about scripture from your podcasts. They help me grow spiritually. And I want to be spiritual, not carnal. With regard to talking about personal matters, I think it makes your programmes heartfelt n endearing. Bec u speak on your personal life, I feel more at ease to leave comments abt my own life. Others will no doubt feel the same too...then we can all pray for one another.
Great Sermon! Trevor,
I have pondered the same questions about myself many times. Why am I not as compassionate as I should be? Why don't I weep over the pains and sorrows of others? Why don't I weep over my own sin? All of these questions I have asked about myself, and about other Christians. I have made it a point to try and memorize 1 Corinthians 13, but I havnt yet figured out how to transfer the truth of the love chapter from my mind to my heart. God Bless you Trevor, I can't speak for everyone else, but I consider you family, you are a brother in Christ, and have been souly responsible for changing the way I think about life, christianity, theology, everything. If you were in trouble I'd be in my car heading your way today. Because of your programs, and the programs produced by Sean Harris and his staff at Berean, my Christianity has been completely transformed. Keep up the good work. We love ya
They are God's entrusted to us for a time. They are not ours if we happen to disagree with the atheistic liberal, secular agenda. That whole talk was code for "we disagree with what you are teaching them and how you are raising them with a Christian or conservative worldview." If you don't subscribe to their agenda, then they belong to society, so they can indoctrinate them into their atheistic, secular progressive ways. The government schools are already in the forefront of the indoctrination movement. The children don't stand a chance against the bullies at school and I don't mean their fellow students either. I am forever doing damage control with what my kids hear from teachers and other students at school.
The wisdom of a 4 year old A four year old doesn't know the right foot from the left. When my girls were that young they wanted to marry me. My son wanted to marry his mother. Should that be allowed also because a 4 years old thinks it's good and not "crazy"? They also think it's a great idea to have soda and candy for every meal, would the liberal secular humanist go for this also? Now that's crazy.
Great Sermon! Thank you so much for sharing your experiences, I have seen much of the same lack of compassion in churches and at work as an RN in an ER. Again Thank you for sharing, and know that you are not alone in your experiences with 'the love of christians'. The death of a loved one by whatever means is something dealt with over a life time. People do not get over a death, they get through it in time. I've seen many times that those in the ministry and those in the medical field are expected by most of society to simply step over the bodies of loved ones and strangers alike and get back to work as if nothing happened.
that was repulsive and disturbing... Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
She, the mother, has every intention of keeping her child from the Lord Jesus Christ with this rebellious mindset towards God's institution of marriage!
Matthew 18:6 hovers above her head, only God's mercy sustains her every breath...what a dangerous life she leads...
