oh my I posted this on my Facebook page and wow! I was told to be careful. People like you are just jealous, (envious would have been the accurate accusation). I then posted the Larry King clip. Didn't get any better reception. After I informed the commenters that Mr Osteen didn't believe that atonement was achieved through Jesus' sacrificial act on the cross, I posted instructions on how to view the transcript of Mr Osteens 4-23-2000 easter sermon that sounds more like a cartoon episode than any kind of preaching topical, exegetical or otherwise. We are here. The time that 2Tim 4:3&4 is here brothers.
Just a moment I had only heard that the person being treated was here and not a citizen of the USA. Maybe some others did not have this info when forming their opinions. I also did not know they were serving the infected in Africa when they contracted the disease. I thought it was a non US citizen so I thought they should not be brought over. Maybe the public needs more information or take time to pay a little more attention to the info presented. I am not quick to label anyone selfish who do not think they should not be allowed to come back for treatment for a disease that has no cure and deadly. Prayer for the sick and wisdom dor their care is needed for sure
preaching to the choir I love your ministry. It is a wonderful teaching ministry. Something that is lacking in ALL of the body of Christ today. Corporate worship is now merely another form of entertainment and there is a huge lack of both community/accountability and submission.
As for your topic. I was in the world during Obama first campaign. I was all for him. I was also all for drugs, fornication, and violence. I saw a black face and that was enough for me.
Then the Lord changed me. This was 4 years ago. As I dug into the scriptures I began to see a drastic difference between what the bible says Christianity is and what I see on a regular basis, that includes the Christian in the White House.
I speak out about the President's inability to uphold biblical truths regularly. I even addressed this in part at our districts layman's day year end event that had many preachers,
deacons, and other "higher-ups"in our district. I was met with mostly silence and a bit of anger.
Although there many in the minority, there are a few in the pulpits of black churches speaking out on the "prezs" stance on abortion, homosexuality, gay "marriage", entitlement, pro Muslim attitude, and foreign policy.
God bless you and your ministry.
Great Sermon! What a shocking statement from the President! He must not get away with it Where are the voices of
democracy ? Are there any more brave preachers/shepherds like Sean Harris who are willing to confront him ?..If so please do!!
Great Sermon! Thank you very, very much Pastor Sean! Hopefully the saints (primarily the Black shepherds) will wake up to the absurdities that are coming from our White House. Like it or not (I don't like it) the President is our chief representative and speaks for us all. We need someone nonpolitical with the courage and godliness to rebuke him publicly. And to publicly ask him if God has granted him salvation and why he believes this. His answer really wouldn't matter. But openly saying either "Yes" or "No" would shock most people out of their spiritual stupor and malaise concerning his lawless actions and foolish rhetoric. Again, thank you for your passionate comments.
Great Sermon! This is God's work from beginning to end. He will rise up godly men to do his work as he sees fit. Those men must be obedient to him but he will never abdicate his glory to those men or the church in America or anywhere.
Great Sermon! Though technically we have become aliens and strangers in our home country I think we have an obligation to speak as God's prophets to our nation. We should warn it of the consequences of not only suppressing the truth in unrighteousness here but exporting and teaching the whole world to learn and practice unrighteousness. It would be one thing if the U.S. was poor and isolated but we have the finances, intellect, power, and policy to persuade by financial incentives or by force the governments of the world to do and teach good to their people or do and teach evil. I read about Elijah, Elisha and many other prophets constantly bumping heads with kings like Ahab and Jeroboam in Israel. I see wicked Nineveh repenting at the preaching of Jonah. I see King Jehoash doing right in the sight of the Lord because of the godly influence of Jehoiada the priest. Paul and his fellow missionaries always trying to persuade the NATION of Israel to repent and come to God in every place they found them. To paraphrase MLK we should be the moral consciousness of our nation. Are we not God's watchmen? Do you want this modern day Babylon the Great to keep offering her abominable cup of wickedness to the world? How will the unsaved hear without a preacher that does not preach to them?
Great Sermon! My husband and I have been looking for a new church home. I was hearing what was being said about the ipod, facebook and etc....My recent experience with these electronic gizmos involved a church we had on our "shopping" list. The pastors wife, during the sermon continuously kept picking up her electronic gizmo which was big enough to see the icons. I found this very distracting as she used her touch screen with some sort of determination. I couldn't even tell you what the message was about. I wondered if this also distracted anyone else. I am all for carrying the Bible and letting electronic gizmos home. Your message was excellent and had lots of useful points. Please prayer for my husband and I that we will find a church home....I need church to recharge me for the upcoming week!
Great Sermon! Read Michael Rydelnick book on the Arab Israel Conflict. It gives details that most people are not aware of. It shows the presence of Jewish people in the Land after the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D.
Natural or Spiritual? Natural (Saul of Tarsus) or Spiritual (Paul)? Whenever the natural speaks against the truths of the Spirit of God, he speaks against Christ Himself. Recommd give an ear to yes, Charles Spurgeon's "Natural or Spiritual" on Sermon Audio.
Revealing they did a good job in being an illustration and helping Carl Trueman prove his point, I was somewhat surprised they didn't understand that a catechism is not a substitute for scripture but rather a systematic compilation of scripture as a means to aid memory and teach.
so nice to see a pastor who is awake I've been covering this topic almost 12 yrs. There's a group called b4uact.org who have re labeled themselves minor attracted persons and they are here in America and they are using the Homosexual. Play book and saying at least 10 percent of the population are born that way pediphiles. I'm a therapist that got run out of the field because I couldn't bow to the state telling me I couldn't help homosexuals. And soon therapists will be told they can't help pedophiles who want help. It's time pastors took some moral leadership as well as spiritual leadership... How come this podcast has so few interested. .. That itself speaks volumes.
Alarming, if true. My experience on youtube is that unbelievers are full of hate and vicious profanity; believers tend to be relatively courteous, misguided more often than not, but rarely vile. Consider Genesis 6:5. And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart.
But Why? Why did this grieve God? If man is not responsible for his actions because he has a sin nature causing him to sin, why would God be grieved? Wickedness is precisely what one should expect. But if in fact man does not have a sin nature but is entirely responsible for his actions through free the passage begins to make sense.
The false doctrine of the sin nature is absolutely pagan and it is deadly teaching. If you tell people they have a sin nature they will behave as if they have a sin nature. True the Church needs to repent. They need to repent of these false doctrines and fallacies that make no sense when you compare them to the Bible, so that man can be brought to true repentance when he faces without pretext or excuse his own sin for what it really is, TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW, rather than some mythical disease he is born with.
