Great Sermon! The reason is simple... people are fornicating years BEFORE tying the knot, and it simply makes for a WEAKENED MARRIAGE COVENANT. Or, when couples live together FIRST, and then 'slide' into marriage, WITHOUT moving out until the HONEYMOON, they 'change' and act sometimes uncivil to each other. What is really sad, is that some Christians are more 'immoral' than Islamists, and everyone knows about 'sins of the body' even Buddists.BTW,There is a book out called HANDS OFF: THIS COULD BE LOVE.. written by an orthodox Jew; Gila Manolsen. She said it isn't even ok to kiss or hold hands if you want a lifelong marriage with your partner, and do this AFTER THE MARRIAGE.
Great Sermon! This is why people said in the past, PLEASE DON'T RAISE YOUR CHILDREN IN A BROKEN HOME!! many millennials came FROM broken and never formed HOMES.. If Christians kept their marriages together, this may have not happened. Yes we get forgiveness of sin but their are CONSEQUENCES!
Yes, Its time to wake up ‚ÄúAll laws and modes of life that man heeds not the word of God lead to destruction.‚ÄĚ
This is a foundational statement ‚Äď judge all things by this and you will be able to see clearly.
The creators of these systems know exactly what they are doing, they are the evil elite and they know who their master is. Down the chain are the blind that have been fooled into "the cause‚ÄĚ and have exchanged good for evil.
Great evils have been perpetrated under the guise of Philanthropy. If the right hook is government -Philanthropy is the uppercut. Few see it coming.
I C Grace There is only one sin for which one cannot be forgiven- rejecting Christ.Of course Jesus hates divorce. And it would benefit all of us greatly to study His Word in regards to it.It really has become quite convoluted. Divorce is acceptable within the church on grounds for which it shouldn't. One should leave for safety issues and the like but one could just stay unmarried if there is a divorce. Adultery is serious business.I would think that there would not be one among us who hasn't committed it..externally or internally. However, those of us who love Him are also keenly aware of his grace and mercy which in turn changes our desires. His Grace draws us and keeps us too. :)
Great Sermon! The innocent spouse commits adultery when they remarry according to Jesus.
If Herod came to my church today, he might offered a deaconship or eldership.
Maybe John the Baptist too hard on Herod
1 Corinthians 6
9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God
32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
Great Sermon! I also believe this could be a reason we are having too many black, gray, or brown colors on women. They go better with the bluing of tats. Even modern CLOTHING is rather boring, or shows too much skin. so it could be 'a' reason tats are popular. I have talked many teens OUT of tatting themselves as well.
Great Sermon! don't feel like capitalizing..sigh....
they look HORRIBLE on women!! similar to body hair. No one is thinking ahead! This was 'normal' worldwide UNTIL the CHRISTIANS changed it. The pagans stopped tatting. Now Christians? are doing this? I like John Piper, but, hmmm. I'm GLAD my 18 YO daughter don't like them and wont get one. Also, if you like the look, you could get imitation tattoos, or even HENNA which you could CHANGE. Even removal of them leave scars!
Polygamy was a 'given' simply because of the radical feminists want to have men and women as partners. In fact, I believe the persecution of women was also led by...women in the past. I didn't think this at first, but women train their SONS to some degree.
Radical Muslims would not have the power they have now, IF the church wasn't so WEAK!!
Great sermon! Although I don't necessarily agree with everything Mr. Swanson brought up in his message, (I have seen the frozen movie) I agree that most kids movies are slipping in small segments of sin and saying that lying, stealing, ect., is okay in that situation. I sincerely hope that the movie directors will start glorifying God through film, rather then glorifying man.
Great Sermon! There is a movie out now, called GOD IS NOT DEAD. its about an atheist professor who tries to get the Christian kids to doubt GOD. This movie needed to be around 40 years ago. It could be an answer to prayer.
Great Sermon! Millenials LOVE BIG GOVERMENT.. simply because that was WHO RAISED THEM... 80% came from BROKEN HOMES...(they are broken for a reason) even their moms were latchkey kids, looking for love in all the wrong places when in teen years. That is how they got here.
We have to get REAL MEN to come alongside them, who are married for a while. We could reverse this one kid at a time I believe.
Great Sermon! What also could happen,, is many young men will get on Porn.. and later get into harder porn, and eventually abuse children. I've even heard that when they ****, some of their TESTOSTERINE gets lost and they start acting more feminine!!(I'm starting to notice this among teenage boys)
It has to start somewhere--the men have to get rid of their PORN THEMSELVES--and from 5th grade onward, MEN have to start talking to their sons, or get others in the church to do so.
Great Sermon! Barbara from San Antonio
the OLDER films were the BEST.. not the resurection of Disney films in the late 80s early 90s--by that time, the radicals have taken over. Pocahontas was totally incorrect: in fact she even became a CHRISTIAN and changed her name to Rebecca even the spelling from Rebekah, and married John Rolfe.
John Avery Whitaker was the pastor who baptized her and is why FOTF uses his name for Mr. Whit
Thanks! I was just about ready to buy the Frozen DVD! The movie reviewers at PluggedIn (Focus on the Family) gave a positive review of Frozen. They should have listened to your broadcast before writing it!
Superficial There's a lot more to complain about with Disney than the recent homosexual agenda. Even old Disney films depict immodesty, rebellion, running off with strangers,etc. The Little Mermaid, Pocahontas, Aladdin, etc. all have very negative messages. Christians should have seen the harm in Disney films 40 years ago, instead of responding only now. The rampant immorality, vanity and rebellion that Disney films encourage has helped pave the way for sexual alienation and homosexuality for those who don't fit the stereotypes.
Thank you! Us young christian guys get beat up on a lot (many times deservedly so) about not growing up, but in my circle there are many more godly young men looking to get married than women. Thank you for taking time to address the other side of the coin!
