Great stand for God's cause. Wow! What a direct and tough message! It is true: we must not fight only for some moral aspects which interest us, but, as God's children, we must be jealous for God's cause and to fight to keep His truth and His worship pure. We must not associate with people who disregard the Word of God and who do not fear God.
Care and courage! I praise God that He raised up pastor Ovadal to speak at that time about this serious problem in the FPC, presenting the truth to many people, with biblical arguments, making a stand and showing to confused people in the FPC the right way. The truth remains even today: the compromised pastors of the FPC must repent and declare publicly their error and the faithful pastors must speak publicly denouncing that error. May God purify FPC so that He might send again blessings upon their churches! I thank God for raising people who care about their brothers!
Thank you dear saint. May the Lord in mercy raise up many more witnesses to the everlasting righteous and mercy that are in the Gospel of the Lord Jesus. The ecumenical spirit has infected the churches world-wide. We need to implement strict (and Biblical!)quarantine measures, and especially it would be good for congregations to check out their shepherds, who may be carrying the infection without showing outright symptoms. Here I think of the old truth, "that it is not so much (or only) what a man says, but what he doesnt say, that shows what he really beleives". May our Great Shpherd deliver all His sheep from this deadly soul damning plague of our times. May you dear brother (and your beloved fellow labourers) have strength, and know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain.
Powerful Sermon! Praise the LORD! Do you know the Lord of Liberty and all His benefits - temporal and spiritual? Pastor Ovadal preaches a valuable sermon that Christians can benefit from, as well as share with the unsaved.
Please listen! I hope many will listen to this very important message. May Day 2010 -- rabbis, priests, prophets, etc. -- one would think it was a World Council of Churches gathering, which evangelicals would soundly condemn! But no, it is a gathering organized by big-name "evangelicals." Absolutely astonishing!! I am thankful for not only the truth told regarding this event, but also for the most glorious and comforting words from Isaiah 61:10.
This was so Wonderful! Thank you so much for this sermon. I have read the manhattan declaration, and was appalled at the misguided statements, and cannot see how someone truly grounded in Christ could put their name on such a document. My faith is NOT rooted in TRADITION. It is rooted in CHRIST.
Healing words. Words of healing. Righteousness in Christ alone, our sins imputed to Him and His righteousness imputed to us. New birth. New life. Turn from the world and follow Him. Glory in the Christ of the cross.
Mahattan Declaration Rebuke Brad Newman,
What part of ( Co 6:14 Do not be bound together with unbelievers;
2Co 6:17 "Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE," says the Lord. "AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And I will welcome you!)
don't you understand?
Great Sermon! Amen. When I was first regenerated, I went to the nearest KJV only fundamental Baptist church and attended a Christmas Party. Thirsting for any discussion of the Bible , I asked a question to the minister.. He responded by saying "We dont talk shop at a party" Talk SHOP? Christ paid for my sin and talking about my love for him ..this is talking SHOP? I saw then that to this man, my Savior was not LOVE... only a job. He did not see Him that my soul loveth.
On some level Christmas always left me with a burden of sin... as a child I was laden with guilt about my greediness and coveting as I hungrily made up letters for Santa/ Satan.
I celebrate NOTHING with the word mass in it. Blessed be the Lord.
I Signed The Declaration It is a fact that there are dear Christian brethren that do not see it a Christian liberty to sign the Manhattan Declaration.
Granted, there are underlying theological statements within the document that should be noted. The document does not directly support the ecumenical movement to join Roman Catholicism with Evangelical Christianity but makes some connections that many, who are still on their guard that the foundational issues of the reformation are still alive and well, may want to examine.
However, I still want my voice to be heard loudly that I currently protest the direction the US government is taking in supporting the pro-abortion agenda, the redefining of marriage between a man and a woman, and various legislation that may ultimately make Christianity politically incorrect!
In good conscience toward God and man, I signed the document with both eyes wide open - one eye was with hope that some good could be done - another eye on what Rome may gain from this venture.
Please listen!!! Thank you, Pastor Ovadal, for earnestly contending! I pray that many will listen to and heed this timely warning.
It is astonishing that so many evangelicals would throw the Bible out the window and unite with Roman Catholics and Orthodox as "Christians" all! I hope that people will also check out the list of signers which include Albert Mohler, Ravi Zacharias, James Dobson, Joni Eareckson Tada, Tony Perkins, Tim Keller (Redeemer Presbyterian Church), Gary Bauer, JI Packer, Chuck Colson, Timothy George, and, unfortunately, many more claiming the title "evangelical."
Great Sermon! I tremble with fear at the signing of this Declaration because of the holiness of our Lord. Christians, please do not be deceived... Listen to this sermon and be "wise as serpents" and "harmless as doves." Please don't be fearful as we serve a mighty God. Shun evil and take refuge in the LORD and not in politicians or false religionists.
