Great Sermon! Excellent message by Dr Barnett. Illustrates how far the Roman church is from the Scripture truth and doctrines. Protestants would do well to hear these facts with a view to reach out to the Catholics and reveal their errors to them.
Thankyou John Barnett.
Great Sermon! When I pass by a building that calls itself "Church" I think that it is first of all a "Business" because it has real estate, buildings, paid staff, and all the administrative aspects of a business.
Is it a "family" as this message suggests? Maybe for a few that are really involved in "running the business" (the 20 percent that do 80 percent of the work), but not for the majority who show up once or twice a week.
Mormon Basics by Way of John MacArthur While well-delivered, this sermon did not provide listeners many witnessing tools to use the next time missionaries come a'knocking.
I hoped for greater depth or analysis of Mormonism, but this was just the same examples so often heard in these quick surveys of what is actually a very complex religion. It deserves more than a glancing blow in a sermon series on cults.
Damaging the message's credibility was Dr. Barnett repeating an error MacArthur made in his original telling of the BYU story. There are not seven presidents in the LDS church; there is a first presidency of three presidents and below them a Quorum of Twelve Apostles. It's important we get the details right. Christians evangelizing Mormons will lose credibility unless they are armed with correct information; repeating reheated half-truths from years ago will not win us a hearing or an opportunity to share God's truth in love. MacArthur's self-aggrandizing account of his meeting at BYU is an example of such a missed opportunity. (Ravi Zacharias had a greater impact when he reached out in love and truth in 2004)
What I appreciated most in this message was Dr. Barnett's words on the then-recent 9/11 tragedy, the media's politically correct coddling of Islam and the well-stated truth of God's sovereignty.
Great Sermon! Thank you for your comforting sermon on one of my favorite Psalms (Psalm 34) with so many wonderful promises. I greatly appreciate your sharp mind, intricate Bible knowledge and pleasant, uplifting Spirit.
A Primer for Understanding the Gospel! Outstanding sermon on not only the Salvation message, but the tenets of our Faith in general. The only thing I did not necessarily agree (maybe semantically) with is when he said "all who will believe" regarding
Christ's atonement or imputation of sins... isn't it "all who Christ came to save (elect)? Saying it the way he said it, makes it appear that we have something to do with our salvation...we can "decide" when we "want" to become saved...and I don't necessarily see that in the Bible. Just my view. I REALLY enjoy hearing John MacArthur preach!
Clear. Excellent presentation of the Gospel. A refutation of self-salvation systems and of all kind of syncretic systems which change the pure Gospel of salvation. Absolutely needed in these days of ignorance about what the Gospel is.
Great Sermon! Wow I been so blessed by God..God has Been emphezising the importance of meditation on my life thru my leaders at church and now to come accross Dr.John who in the simplest of ways just confirmed Gods Words to me..Gods Sovereignty at work..May God keep Blessing You!
Faith Building Sermon!! What an awesome God we serve. He will always keep His promises. Very interesting to see prophecy come to pass especially with another war between Israel and Palestine? I have been surprised,by the number of born again Christians who are against Israel and the preachers saying the church has replaced Israel, especially when we know the final outcome outcome. Thank you John and God bless you
The Most Incredible History! What a wonderful sermon full of history of the Lost World of Genesis. Who can imagine that it contained some 7 billion people whom the sea shall one day give up. Comparisons between their world and ours; amazing insights into Genesis; this is indeed the most incredible history. Thank you, Dr Barrett.
Great Sermon! 'To God be the glory' A sermon pointing to the reality of death followed by the an eternal punishment for anyone, who fails to accept Christ as Lord and Saviour. That physical death of a sinner, is only the begin of eternal damnation. A messge of warning to all non believer and believer alike.
Start of my second odyssey Thankyou Dr. Barnett for this great sermon,which i found most enlightening.
I am starting ,for the second time,an odyssey of choosing a sermon from each book of the Bible chronologically,on Sermonaudio,..preached by a preacher,whom,(as far as i can recall),i have not heard before.May the Lord be pleased to bless this venture,and bless your ministry dear brother,to the glory of His name.
greatly needed advice Dr Barnett is both helpful and informative.
As an ex Catholic I find his method very helpful as this was the way that I was brought to the Lord. Get them to read the passages and ask them 'what do you think that passage is teaching? that way they come to the knowledge of truth themsleves without feeling they have been pressurised. If they give the wrong answer gently ask them to re-read the passage asking them questions, 'is that what the passage is really saying'? Allow them to come to the knowledge of truth themsleves. Remeber the one who keeps asking the questions is the one who is in control.Its often called the Columbo method. Though ultimetly it is the work of the Holy Spirit.So lots of prayer! Get them to awaken their critical thinkging by getting them to question their own beliefs.
