Great Sermon! I hope I say this right. In listening to this discussion between you guys several things struck me. Especially about the thoughts of Jonathan Edwards on God's will. God is either sovereign or he's not. If there is one thing that he is not in control over then that would mean he is not sovereign and if we have any choices in our lives that he ultimately is not in control over then he is not sovereign. However as we can see from the bible there are things that we have control over. Obviously we have a choice everyday whether to sin or not to sin, if we are indeed free from the slavery of sin as saved people. I think that any choices that we make is allowed by God in His sovereignty. Could He at any moment intervene? Yes he could. Is there anything that we do that he does not know about beforehand? I don't think so. If you tell someone at Mickey D's to go to hell,did he not know that you were going to do that? Yes he did and he could have stopped it. But in his sovereignty and ultimately for his glory he allows us to live our lives and have choices about how we will react or our actions. Not because hes not sovereign but because he is. I hope I said that right.
Great Sermon! The fact is Romans was written under a time of tyrannical government and to the people of Rome that were subject to that government. Not to our united States or any current governing authority. With that said as Christians we need to submit and be as peaceable as possible with the governments authority. Continue presenting the gospel as God opens the doors. God will and does fight these battles for us and has given us clear directions that in every case will lead to Him getting all the glory. Not us or the preacher.
Incorrect teaching regarding our God given freedom. David P....I agree with you completely. Pastors.....you have a skewed understanding of our Government and the "Authority" they have. First off the "Higher" authority here in this country is the Constitution.....not all the crazy unconstitutional "laws" the legislators come up with to get us to comply with their tyranny. The police officer was in the wrong.....the security guard was in the wrong and both were perpetrating a fraud and using Color of law in an effort to suppress the first amendment. Use of color of law is illegal. The criminal was the police officer not the preacher and while I do agree that the preacher could have used some tact and another method to get his message out......his arrest is completely illegal under the constitution of the United States. Your understanding of Romans 13 is bent....you do not understand it at all. Please get educated. Google Pastor Chuck Baldwin and buy his book Romans 13. Stop preaching that the Government is to be submitted to and that they are given authority from God!
Thank you for truth and not trying to be ecumenical and sanitize the absolute abominable garbage that Rome tries to peddle .
They are trying to fill up those coffers that got depleted because of their sodomite priests and their criminal acts perpetrated on many innocent children!
By Gods marvelous mercy and grace he opened our eyes and saved us out of that pagan goddess worship.
May He be pleased to open the eyes of many more!
To God be all the glory!!
Great Sermon! Lamp lighter
If sin being passed from father to child is unbiblical please explain why Jesus being born of a virgin was so important?romans makes this very clear.Romans 5:19
For as by the one manâ€™s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one manâ€™s obedience the many will be made righteous.
Two wrongs do not make a right! True, true. On the other hand, the idea that a sin nature is passed from parents to children is just as ridiculous. The Bible does not teach this! This is pagan/gnostic philosophy Augustine picked up from his Manichean background and foisted on the Church in the 4th Century. The idea that Ted Bundy committed his murders because of some mythical nature he inherited from Adam is frankly blasphemous. It certainly won't wash when he stands before God in judgement. When O when is the Church going to wake up and throw out these heresies!
Once more the papists spinning their web of lies so they can continue to beguile the simple with their goddess worship.
Not one bible verse to support their heresy...just theories...and they can't even agree on that!! Lol
The parable audience I have a few thoughts now that I have spent the last 4 years studying the Word... All 31,000 verses of it & not just the 1,100 endorsed for mass by Vatican 1&2 (cuz that all Catholics get)..
1. All a catholic has to do is open there mouth about anything biblical and it is immediately apparent that they either have NO clue there are 29,000 OTHER verses of context about which they have no knowledge -OR-as in the case of the few apologists, they know what the bible says but prefer the fables of ungodly men and who haveheaped to themselves teachers
Not as evil as it seems Obama is clearly not a Christian, but does that make the healthcare plan evil? Which policy in the US is holistically Biblical? How about the millions who were denied healthcare because of pre-existing conditions? Sure, you can say that some people who are deliberately reckless get rewarded by this system, but what about those who are actually incapable of paying because they can't afford it? Can't those few at least count for something good? I really don't think you guys did justice to this topic.
The Gov IS a terror to Good Works! I am stunned to hear you say that you think that because the Bible says that They are no t a terror to Good works that it must be so. It is not so....Governments across the planet have been a terror to good works since the beginning of time and are becoming even more of a terror to good works as time wears on. You are willfully ignorant in this area if you think otherwise. Look up Chuck Baldwin and learn about the mistranslations and misinterpretations of Romans 13. We here in the US especially are a Government of the people and by the people. These "officials" are not our "Rulers" we are theirs and they are to do what we ask of them not the other way around. Unfortunately they have decided in their own that they are our rulers and have usurped their authority in violation of our constitution and bill of rights. These rights are not given us by men...they are given to us by our Creator God and they have chosen to disobey these God given rights in an effort to destroy freedom. This has nothing to do with catching criminals with cameras.....it has everything to do with controlling everything in your life and Government standing in the place of God! They are the criminals not us. We should be watching them....not the other way around! Christians have become limp wrested and. effemi
Great Sermon! Excellent!
Guys...my brother, my wife and I have been studying this very topic for over two years now. It is a truly amazing study. I am always amazed at the leaps and crazy hoops the pretrib preachers will thru to maintain this crazy deception! I truly feel that those that are preaching this and those that are being deceived by this teaching are in real danger during these end times days. They truly believe they will not be here when the mark of the beast is deployed. Because of this belief and the devil being the deceiver that he is......this mark of the beast will not be obvious to them....they will see it as just another method of payment and not as the mark.....some will wake up but I fear many will not and thus they will be lost in the great falling away!
Mormons I read Dr. Mohlers speech he made at BYU and while he was polite and cordial. He made it very clear that they preach a different Gospel. So much so that Glen Beck,( who is a mormon) was very offended what Al Mohler said. Mr. Land is a very liberal Baptist, I dont trust him.
Then why does not Charisma call out Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, Joyce Meyer, TD Jakes the whole of TBN just leave the poison alone right? It is sad no one wants to call out the blatant offenders but John he is bad
Great Sermon! It would have been beneficial if we could have listened to the actual recordings of those events.
When I emailed Dr Wood's organization for the audio, this was their reply : 'Video/audio of Dr. Wood's talk would have been at the discretion of BYU and as far as we know the school has not released it.'
So, I got in touch wit BYU. This is what they said:
'The original agreement with the various speakers was that the audio would not be released. They do have a low-quality version for archival purposes only.'
Someone is not telling the truth!
