History of Brown University It is interesting how far colleges have fallen. This University was founded by our Baptist fore-fathers such as Isaac Backus in the late 1700s. Even as late as 1962 there was an excellent PHD dissertation that really made me a student of the Old School, New School Presbyterian debate written by Earl Pope at Brown University. (New England Calvinism and the Disruption on the Presbyterian Church in 1837) I have a postal route right on the borders of Calvin College, another school that ceased to be orthodox even in the late 1920s.
an unpopular question ...just wondering how Christian men can even watch the NFL knowing that they will be viewing countless images which they shouldn't be.I realize that it's possible to encounter less than modest images in the real world but I have a hard time swallowing the excuse that Christians "navigate" the programs. Let's face it, the difference between the television and the real world is that such images are guaranteed to be viewed while watching a program (even momentarily) while they aren't,normally, in the real world..and when such images are, they aren't nearly as "glamorous".
I think that watching the television may just give the men an excuse to view immodest images without the guilt..and Christian women watching "Dancing With The Stars" (a program with naked women jiggling around)-not very Christ honoring..sad commentary on where we're at...
Great Sermon! Everyday more and more, our government is enslaving us and taking away all our civil rights. It's an abomination . I love America but I fear the government . I'd rather die free than live enslaved
Great Sermon! This world gets sicker and sicker. If Brown University really wants to please their students would they purchase KJVBibles for their Christian Students? Would they support missionary trips? Thank you for your devoted work truly blessed by your messages.
These people know NOT.... ...whom they serve....All of these God-hating people being enabled/financed to push their "equality" and government-forced tolerance agenda will be targeted for extermination first once communism.is implemented...that's right listeners...even homosexual behavior will be stomped out by the new assassins who hope to assume political power in America.
These people who will now come after Pastor Sean, and all us biblicists on the physical lifestyle issue; you best REPENT sooner rather than later, the timeclock of your early demise is ticking faster now that this President and his ilk are exploiting you for their own ends.
God is giving you an OUT by our incessant holding up of His standards for human behavior on this Earth. Run away from that lifestyle as fast as you can...the communists are only using you, they HATE you....we don't!!
A lot to think about At 6:30 in the message Pastor Sturm asks if there is more to our Christian life than being against same sex marriage. Then he rightly stated we should pray against the spread of Islam in our country. I have been wondering. Maybe the Muslim religion gaining the ascendancy is going to be the way God will both judge our nation for the light we have thrown off AND as the way He will punish the rampant spread of homosexuality? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_in_Islam Do we have any guarantee that God will not punish America by another nation, if He punished His own people in the Old Testament by the Assyrians? Isaiah 10:5. The words of the puritan William Gurnall have always sobered me. Take heed of inventing new sins lest you stir up God to invent new punishments. (2)It is amazing that someone in leadership is both pro-Islam and pro-homosexual. They can't both be predominant. If you doubt this, see how they fare in Uganda.
Thanks for keepin it real I was a gang member a after being saved, I can't stand my old ways. And your right their are many trying to still be cool & hip for Christ. This is what led me out of the Charismatic movement in which I didn't even know was a movement because it's all I knew. It's so sad Pastor Strum.
Awsome Sermon! Just one thing. TheCongress shall make no lawrestricting an establishment of Religion,or prohibiting the free expression thereof. Now A soldier looses some uf his rights when entering military service. But Not this one. The CRoss is the symbol of OUR faith. Removal of it prohibits the free excersize therof. I say let the athests and moon god worshipers fill the ranks of the army. See just how long we remain free. SEMPER FI! till JEHOVA DIES!
Great Sermon! Pornography has a devistating effect upon a child's mind. I should know. I first saw porn as a 4 yr old. Hardcore porn at 5. It's taken me where I'd never thought I'd go. It literally ruined my life. Thank God I hate porn. Porn is evil, it's not normal
Great Sermon! The reason that they are so compelled to join forces is because the deadly wound by the sword of God (the Bible being made public in the reformation) this wound to the head the authority has been or is being healed!
