RE: Pretrib I listed people that have all the scripture you need. Many of them are on SermonAudio.
Here's one on youtube:
RE: Cezar from Midwest Please take the time to show me in particular how what I preached was incorrect from the Word of God. Please refer me to Bible verses. Certainly our authority is found in the Word of God not a particular preacher's interpretation of a passage.
RE: Joe Lee and Straw Men Joe Lee,
It would have been wonderful if you had been so kind as to articulate one of the straw men I set up so that I don't do that again. My intent was not set up straw men but instead show that God's Sovereignty in the salvation of the elect is a concept beyond any human's full comprehension.
Great Sermon! Good talking points Sean. I've talked with many professing believers that don't believe that the entire Bible is "true", and further, that much of it is allegorical. It's important that people realize just how outlandish such a view is. Jesus quoted many of the OT prophets in His NT ministry, in particular citing that Jonah was factual, and that Jonah was indeed 3 days and 3 nights in the whale's belly. That said, your point rings loud and true that if Jesus used this factual event as an illustration of His future resurrection, then it is to be taken as liter and factual, and not allegorical. Great points.
I appreciate your attempt at this discussion but would have liked to have seen a more accurate description of calvinism. There were a number of straw men set up by sean, i think. Thank you though for the stimulating topic.
Don't Mistake Conservativism with Christianity In general, we may find much more common ground with conservatives than we do with liberals politically, but let's not get sucked into thinking that conservatives are a front for the faith. You may hear throw-away references to God or even Christ on the talk shows, but you'll never hear the Gospel: the only message to ever deliver people. I look forward to "The Bible", and this clip led me to re-examine the book of Jonah. Hopefully the Bill O'Reillys won't be so hung up on the big fish, but rather will be blessed by the story of a reluctant prophet, a wicked city delivered into his hands, and God's encouragement to us as witnesses that He has compassion for the lost.
Pretrib The Tribulation is God pouring out His wrath on the earth. Also, the Tribulation is the time of Jacob's trouble, not the church.
Christians will be taken out of the way then the Tribulation will happen.
Pastors that you should listen to: Jack Hyles, Lester Roloff, Bryan Denlinger, Reg Kelly, Greg Miller, D. A. Waite
