Excellent! ... an excellent job in giving historical context to the pericope and exhorting us to look deeper into what Paul is trying to say about being under the Lordship of Christ. I did a lot of work in college in New Testament studies so I appreciate his careful attention to Paul's words.
Excellent Teaching! A thorough, comprehensive and understandable description of the Gospel as taught in the Bible! I wish that all the church would listen and repent of human techniques and ideologies that claim to be the Gospel but are in fact no Gospel at all!
This is a message to share with your leaders.
Wonderful Sermon! A truly wonderful sermon capping off chapter 5 of Ephesians. If we, the men of the church, can only understand this all important biblical truth concerning marriage. If we truly get this, it would end divorce amongst the people of the church. Sadly, and unfortunately, we see how high the divorce rate is amongst believers shows that the body of Christ doesn't get this. It's our prayer that there would not be one more divorce amongst the church of God. Please men, listen to this sermon on the position of the man in the marriage. You will be blessed.
WOW! MUST LISTEN TO! Great audio message to share, with couples, to improve marriages, to help parents, or for anyone to understand clearly God's ordained roles for male and female. Obedience to God's ways and structure of authority will bring harmony and God's greatest blessings. There are so many key insights in this entire message. A must listen to!
Relevant, Needed Sermon! This is as relevant today as it was in 2006. Mark and consider how altar calls and hand raising (says the speaker) has replaced the evangelical ordinance of Baptism of those who repent and believe! (How did the Ethiopian know he ought to be baptized unless Philip included it in preaching the gospel, and that from Isaiah! Neither did Philip require baptism to be delayed or held inside a church meeting place.) New innovations (for another gospel) and "traditions of men" have been invented for evangelism, replacing God's methods and ordinance.
Now what about today's New Calvinism emphasis on "church planting" and cell groups instead of evangelical "foolishness of (authoritative) preaching", like we used to have in times of awakening, which must be necessary to bring about true converts, and a true church? Why are even 'reformed' churches seeking to organize and "plant churches" (as if they are institutions, instead of called out converted saints), instead of by the biblical methodology of preaching publicly outside of church? This is entirely different than the churches planted in the book of Acts, the inspired pattern. The speakers point about how the Bible words used now mean entirely different things in modern Christianity than previously, i.e. grace, believe, gospel, sin
Tremendous "Women, the manner in which you receive this message is a barometer of your own heart."
"Society wants to squeeze us into their warped mold."
May our marriages be "a domestic trophy in the cosmic display case."
WHAT AN EXCELLENT MESSAGE! HOW ARE YOU USING YOUR MINUTES, HOURS, DAYS? Time is precious. Watch out for the land mines! Great look at our use of time, and what is good and right and Biblical. What to watch out for, especially in these days of so many possible distractions. You'll be blessed to listen to this message, and blessed if you choose to walk carefully and wisely. To God be the glory!
Great Sermon! Wonderful sermon! Awake O sleeper the Pastor gives great application for the unconverted, those who believe they are converted who are outside the church and lastly to those who are within the walls of many a building. I encourage all to listen to this one!
Great Sermon!!!!!!!! O that the Church of Jesus would be freed from the Law that continually has them chained! Listen and hear of the Grace that has come through our Redeemer, the One who has paid the price for our sin to set us free!
A very good Sermon! A very good sermon, we are all, if saved, debtors. As the hymn writer declares
A debtor to mercy alone, of covenant mercy I sing;
Nor fear, with Thy righteousness on, my person and offâ€™ring to bring.
The terrors of law and of God with me can have nothing to do;
My Saviorâ€™s obedience and blood hide all my transgressions from view.
Finally - the Truth about Giving in the Church! Hi Pastor LoSardo.
It was a privilege to have been given the opportunity to transfer your sermons from a few years back to mp3 format from cassette-tape format. Now the whole world, thanks to Sermon Audio, can be blessed with your powerful message to the believers, here and through many other sermons from Bread of Life Fellowship.
We find it interesting that it is this very sermon that means so much to us in the here and now.
For those who have avoided or walked away from the faith due to issues of financial responsibility and how it concerns your lives, this sermon is for you!
For Christians who have been told to give a certain way by their churches, lest they be 'cursed' in some way - you'll want to hear this.
For every believer who wants to learn what God expects of them when they want to know what 'worship' really is with regard to giving of themselves, time or money, this sermon is a must.
This sermon could, via God's Spirit within you, change your world!
