Well... People seem to miss the point with
Piper's message. I think the core of what he's saying is the mindset many believers have of putting their trust in guns and not in God, and having no reluctance to gun down some dude who breaks in just to steal a few things. I'm disappointed by some of the vitriol that Piper has been receiving about this.
Great Sermon! ITS OBAMA.. AND THE POWERS THAT BE alongside him(alinskyites)...i don't think he alone could have pulled this off, and with SCALIA DYING, we are going for a long 'ride'.
I knew we would, in 2008, and thought he would last only one term, but in 2012, it just got worse....
Great Sermon! it also matters, that we give our daughters feminine names as well... no more 'unisex' lite....or 'surnames'.
i always thought this was a trap, and gave my daughter a feminine name.
The bible makes a big deal in what names we give our childen
Great Sermon! this sounds crazy, but i'm not surprised.. its time we GET OUR DAUGHTERS INTO DRESSES, PANTYHOSE, etc.
I've noticed ever since 1990, that women stopped wearing dresses/skirts as standard wear and drifted more into pants, and are not wearing pantyhose at all, but tattooing their legs..
Its also trite, but clothing is a good FIRST IMPRESSION....AND OPPOSITES ATTRACT
Great Sermon! Check the names they are given.
The more outlandish the name, the more chance they have a single mother
Names mean things.. Especially Y2K generation.. either, they have surnames as given names OR they are MADE UP.
There is something for giving a boy Jr, and 3rd etc.
Girls should get names of songs??since there were many songs like that before 1970
Not so sure you are correct. I don't believe you are very well informed on London churches or indeed 'Justin Welby'- a very poor choice to represent anything â€˜Christianâ€™-a strange â€˜evangelical' on record as celebrating â€˜the riches of Benedictine and Ignatian spiritualityâ€™ and is ecumenical in his praise for the pope. (note the 39 Articles of the Church of England!) He worshipped at Holy Trinity, Brompton, where the Alpha Course was pioneered. These sort of ecumenical/charismatic/Pentecostal type churches may be growing and attracting immigrants, but are they really the work of God? It isn't always the Biblical gospel that is being preached, but rather the â€˜Jesusâ€™ of ALPHA portrayed more as a â€˜Solver of human problemsâ€™ rather than as a â€˜Saviour from sinâ€™
You should examine the solid churches in the UK on SermonAudio who represent those who are faithful to Godâ€™s Word. Few are large in number, but they evidence the work of Godâ€™s grace. One such church would be Spurgeonâ€™s old church: The Metropolitan Tabernacle-Dr Peter Masters.
I would submit that outside of London there is far less than 1% attending church and in some areas you can travel many miles before you find any faithful Christian never mind a church!
Where did the previous message go? Where did the message on the rise of vampirism and paganism go? It was there literally a few minutes ago then I find it replaced by this current message on London churches
Great Sermon! It's possible that when they stopped preaching out of the KJV, this happened.
Most young kids go to churches that use everything but!!
It may be ok to have other translations but not at pulpit
Surprised @ Adam McManus
Brother, I say this in love. I want to see Muslims come to Christ as you do, but hearing the Gospel and responding by the raising of a hand! Is this not the decisionism we've grown weary of in America?
In Christ Alone
A promise from God to encourage you..... For the ruthless shall come to nothing and the scoffer cease, and all who watch to do evil shall be cut off, who by a word make a man out to be an offender, and lay a snare for him who reproves in the gate, and with an empty plea turn aside him who is in the right.
Isaiah 29:20-21 ESV
Great Sermon! Did we hear it right? You said, if someone doesn't take a "watershed" stand on an issue, you'll go to hell. That is what I heard. I don't think you meant that if a believer doesn't stand for life, (in the context you were referring to abortion) that person will go to hell. Do you mean that 'weak kneed' people are not true believers and will go to hell? Do you mean that a Christian can lose their salvation? What DO you mean? I see no problem commending Franklin Graham for courageously taking a stand against abortion. But do not say people are going to hell for not taking a stand against abortion. That is not biblical. I think I just heard it different from what you attempted to say. Could you tell us your theology on what makes a person a Christian, eternally secure? Perhaps you were talking something along the lines of humanly, we shall know people by their fruits. But in God's eyes, and his eternal perspective, he knows who he has saved for eternity. It is not a matter of one's stands one takes on earth. That, is too human centered for eternity.
Great Sermon! An example of movie entertainment to awaken us?
'Wolverine was panned by the critics here, but we enjoyed it. I agree that the language was unneccessary and offensive. In fact, given the rating, I was shocked at it. The sad thing is I never even noticed the blasphemous swear words. I noticed others. My wife told me afterwards. Lesson learned about becoming comfortable with garbage.'
An English Reformed Baptist pastor's comments above proving my point? He enjoyed it despite the offensive language and DIDN'T even notice the blasphemy, then learns the lesson about being comfortable with garbage?
Surely Christian pastors have better things to do? Why not set the same time aside to pray for a member of the congregation or the salvation of sinners in the locality or for God to grant a pure heart dedicated to His Glory. We wonder why there are so few conversions...yet we are sat at the movies or in front of our 50 inch TV screen? Part-time soldiers are of little use in a full time, full scale, spiritual battle?
Great Sermon! I didn't really notice these things until you'll pointed it out. Go check out the trailer to the new x-men movie due out in 2016. Listen to what's being said. You will be quite surprised. What should we (Christians) think of these movies? I'm guilty of watching the other x-men movies but won't go see this one.
Thank you Jesus set me free from porn addiction. There is forgiveness but I paid a heavy price for my actions. Fast and seek the face of God as if today will be your last day on earth! Remember the devil came to steal and destroy. Me and my house will serve the Lord.
