This is an excellent article and illustrates how our current government is regressing and labeling it ‚Äúprogressive‚ÄĚ. I don't understand why our government leaders cannot see the simple logic and dangers that will likely occur in a combat zone. One of our government's main job is to protect its citizens but implementing this will put us and many of our soldiers at risk. I am afraid there will be a painful lesson learned from this down the road and a lesson that will be difficult to correct. Who will have the political guts to repeal this once it is implemented? The blame will never be directed at this new policy because it isn‚Äôt politically correct to do so. Our obsession to political correction is another good topic for later.
Great Sermon! This is THE most helpful and illuminating (by God's grace) sermon I've ever heard on Election specifically as it relates to evangelism and salvation, and it presents point after point of God's truth. There are some who say you can disbelieve, or "be wrong," on God's election, and still be a brother in Christ... "our Arminian brothers..." but they are wrong, and I see that now. I did not know God when I thought I chose Christ, rather than that He chose me. Listen to this sermon!
Great Sermon! That was a most comforting sermon!! Those of my generation have grown up in material prosperity and spiritual complacency. The trials hitting the country now, though judgments, will be for the good of God's people. Rom 8:28
Great Sermon! I love that sermon. I agree with you on this one. Just because you meet or exceed eligibility criteria for services or supports doesn't mean you should receive them. We live in a culture of entitlement, that's for sure.
Great Sermon! Quite appropriate and timely message.
D enemy has overtly and subtly infiltrated the media and governments to promote antiChrist
ideologies which, on the surface, appear progressive but anti- family n unbiblical.
How Solemnly True!!! It is as you have preached it Mr Knapp and perhaps the evil that exists is worse then one could possibly conceive. I have been out of church for 15 years greiving at what passes for religion today I have often been in depression of spirit often mouring often crying to my God about this famine but the only reply the Lord gives me is, this is my judgement upon an apostate people and ministers alike.
Excellent Sermon!!! God does NOT love all.
"Now see that I,even I,am He,
And there is no God besides Me;
I kill and I make alive;
I wound and I heal;
Nor is there any who can deliver from My hand."
"Was not Esau Jacob's brother?"
Says the Lord,
Yet Jacob I have loved;
But Esau I have hated." And Romans 9:13
"As it is written,"Jacob I have loved,but esau I have hated."
Verse 5b "You hate all workers of iniquity."
"You shall destroy those who speak falsehood."
" The Lord tests the righteous, but the wicked and the one who loves violence His (God's)soul hates."
God Almighty is a Holy and Righteous God.
He has the right, and is entitled to say that homosexuality is depraved behaviour and an abomination to Himself and His true church.
It is not their behaviour alone that is an abomination, it is their whole being. By their fruits you will know them.Not judging, just discerning and speaking God's truth and His laws.
God's richest blessings pastor Curtis,for having the decency and courage to contend for the truth and Word of our Lord and Saviour,amen!
Politically-Incorrect Needed Sermon! It is noteworthy that at the conclusion of June, Gay Pride month (endorsed by President Obama, America's first "Gay President", per Time Magazine), a major Dorecho storm with extremely hot and high temperatures, with rare temps over 100 degrees, swept from Ohio to West Virginia, Virginia and Washington D.C., causing power blackouts for over 2 million in these areas, places which hosted Gay Pride rallies with their rainbow banners and where President Obama campaigned recently. D.C. in particular was hit very hard. That as well as high national temperatures and fires in Colorado. The wrath of God is revealed in June...as Romans teaches.
Great Sermon! Luke 6:22-23
Blessed are you when men hate you, and when they cut you off, and will reproach you, and will cast out your name as evil, on account of the Son of Man;
rejoice in that day, and leap for joy; for, behold, your reward is much in Heaven! For their fathers did according to these things to the prophets.
Great Sermon! Excellent description of repentance - "throw down the weapons of your warfare against God". True, until God grants repentance there is no hope of real blessing in the land. An improved economy would no sign of blessing.
Deep Insightful Sermon! God loves us but He hates sin and He must punish sinful acts because God is perfect and He cannot accept sin in His "life."
When God shows His love, it is because His love is perfect, it does not include any imperfect definition of love by any sinners. Repentance has to be involved in love -- whether God accepts or the sinner gives up his sin, then God shows His love. Love is not dependent on how the sinner views love, God loves in His definition of love and that is perfect.
Great Sermon! I have always loved to hear you preach GOD,s Word and i thank you for again preaching "sound doctrine". All those in Christ will suffer persecution and so the repercussions from your sermon will make some free and the gnashing of teeth from those given over to a reprobate mind. May GOD continue to bless you Curtis for we praise Him for the true men of GOD like yourself.....
It will be all right. God loves us all. Even the gays, lesbians, and transgendered folk out there. He even loves those with such hate in their hearts that they feel the need to put others down for who they are. Who are we to judge, as creatures of God?
I think we learned this sort of thing in pre-school. Respect other people.
