The antidote to Charismania Pastor Ian Goligher does a very good job of examining the modern Charismatic Movement with the practice of the Corinthians that Paul rebuked in chapters 12-14. He goes over the Corinthians problem with super apostles who were glorifying in the gifts that they have...but Paul made his boast in the suffering for the Lord. The same difference is seen today among the leaders of the Charismatic Movement and the humble minister of God who faithfully proclaims God's word in the midst of trials.
Sabbath day There are many non adventist Sabbath keeping Christians, most widely known around the world are the "Seventh Day Baptists".
Adventists are a separate group not to be associated with bible based churches such as the seventh day baptists or other bible based sabbath keeping churches.
Some Church of God seventh day churches accept the oneness pentecostal heresy though and again are their own group to themselves as most odd pentecostal theology is.
WCG is now a mainstream bible based church and as far as I know abandoned all of the heresy they had before with armstrong. This has been for about 15-20 years now I believe.
It is very interesting to read the history of the changing of the sabbath and the acceptance of sunday now as the "christian sabbath" which is not at all biblically justified.
Good Audio For those of you who are interested in Christian apologetics, I'd highly recommend checking out this clip. Also for more info, check out http://www.carm.org. God bless you, Bro. Goligher, and future listeners.
Good Sermon! Good Speaker, loves the Lord. Teaches the Word with conviction and heartful enthusiasm. However, a few facts he stated about the Sabbath are incorrect. Listen to the sermon yourself and do your own research to see if his facts about the Sabbath are indeed valid. Especially about the historical aspect of the Sabbath. Go visit http://www.sabbathtruth.com and click on the Sabbath history link and make your own conclusions. Good Sermon nonetheless.
solemn and serious... ...was this sermon. At the beginning the preacher said he felt like Jonah,who did not want to preach the message to Ninevah and ran away,yet the sermon was faithfully preached from Psalm 56:12. It really made me realise how serious and solemn we have to be in our profession of faith,and basically we sin every minute of the day then,for who is sufficient for these things. My soul is very disturbed,and i cannot reconcile the fruit of the spirit,as in love,joy,peace,etc.I am trying to desperately live a life of holiness,but am wondering if it is just a pipe dream, it just seems an impossible task,and i have a real spirit of heavinesss.
once again... ...i have been blessed by hearing this brother preach. This is a lovely subject matter,i recently read Arthur Pink's comments on this passage from Gleanings in Elisha,and this sermon complements A.W.P's comments nicely.
As we travel the narrow way dear fellow saints,we can be encouraged knowing that if God be for us,who can be against us ! ? Thankyou bro'Goligher for this sermon.
What an encouragement... ...this sermon has been to me as i listened to it,for it has encouraged me to continue to be out in various town centres each saturdays, with Bible texts on my placard,and tracts in my pocket, joined with a true heart for the perishing lost,KNOWING that the Word will NOT return unto HIM void !!!
Paul planted,Apollos watered,and God gave the increase !
Thankyou dear brother Goligher,this is the third sermon i have listened to now and the Lord is gently guiding and leading me to a closer walk with Himself !All thanks be to HIM though,i am nothing !
Second time... ...i have listened to this sermon, and found it as humbling,practical and awesome as the first. This doctrine is all i can think about at the moment,as i realise now the Lord is chastising me ,because He loves me,to be conformable to the death of Christ.
My smug Christian living has been well and truly turned on its head by this sermon and the previous (weeping for souls.)Bless God for His longsuffering with me,and for bringing our brothers ministry into my life. I feel like the shrub that really needed to be cast away and burnt,but my lovely Saviour has dug around it and dunged it one more time.It makes one tremble!Phew ! Oh that it may bring forth fruit to His glory !
What a Sermon! It seems this sermon was the next preached after the weeping for souls sermon,and they complement each other so much in a big way !Thankyou brother for such a heart searching sermon,am i seeking to mortify the lusts and sins of the flesh,and crucify the old man,and get onto resurrection ground? As our brother points out,to be conformed to Christs death is not optional,it is neccessary and vital,and a command !. Oh Lord,i want to, i need to, help me so, to thy glory,the blessing of my soul, and through my willing submission, others may be blessed too.
Heart breaking Sermon... ...and bless the Lord for being so,and using this brother. I have lisened to this sermon 4 times now,as it has cemented the way the Lord has used me again in going out into the town centres every saturday with the Word of God on a placard, after eighteen months of little service for Christ, as it were. The Lord has placed upon me to use the text "God...commandeth all men everywhere to repent ", and as i see the people pass by knowing if they do not repent, and die in their sins,then it is weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth,and being tormented in the flame. I weep daily for lost perishing souls and have a tremendous burden to witness to them. May the Lord be pleased to use me to His glory,it is a strong message,and i am such a weak vessel.Thankyou brother for this sermon,tremendous.
Convicting Sermon! A stirring and convicting message. So often we get comfortable in church and sit week in week out, without a second thought for the countless souls on the road to hell. Oh, for the spirit of Elisha, to weep!
Great Sermon! Pastor Ian Goligher,thankyou for this very informative series of our Christian heritage under fire sermons in Canada. There can be no neutral ground when dealing with the antichristian forceses, because they are not neutral,but against anything Godly,so if the Christian is neutral ,he is helping their cause and not the cause of Christ. Hopefully Christians will wakeup get back into God's Word and repent from this sin of unbelief. God Blessyou as you teach God's Word. I have been blessed by these messages, Thakyou.
Great Sermon! Good message. First part: the pastor gives verses to use when dealing with Mormons as well as citing problems with mormonism. Second part: an ex-mormon gives his testimony. I recommend this message to people who are confused about mormonism.
Great Sermon! Wonderful sermon. John 10 is one of my favourite chapters of the whole Bible. I always need to hear that the Lord keeps me eternally secure and that I can never perish, and that no man can take me away from HIM. Thank You, Sermon Audio for sermons such as this. In Christ, Bruce Lantto Isa. 12:2
Great Sermon! I thought this sermon was great! I would like to know if you have other sermons on the Law of God and the Sabbath etc. What do you think of the World Wide Church of God when Herbert Armstrong was in charge of it?
Great Sermon! God demands great energy when we pray..and this is spiritual exercise, a gift from God. When we understand the nature of desperate praying, we conclude that many people really don't have a prayer life. This is wonderful sermon because it teaches us how we ought to pray if we would be strong Christians. When Jacob prayed at Peniel, we see he did NOT insist on things (a bigger house, a new job), he insisted on receiving God's blessing. Indeed, God will move mountains when we pray according to God's will and to give God the glory. As Jesus said, "With men these things are impossible, but with God all things are possible." But there was much, much more I was blessed with from this indepth sermon and for many more reasons I highly recommend it.
