Great Sermon! Years ago, people used to like Trick or Treating because it was a way to let people see their neighbors, when they havent seen them during the summer and the kids were SOOO CUTE with their costumes..UNTIL the DRUG SCENE BECAME MAINSTREAMED IN THE WESTERN WORLD!!.. soon after, the kids lives would be in danger, with razorblades in apples, brownies with THC on them for them to eat. etc.
Great Sermon! Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Rom 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
very clear that Gods values did not change about this subject.
Anyway thanks for the sermon, as a Body of Christ church we have different stances on some issues but this was needed and appreciated.
Best to you all
Great Sermon! sorry ran out of room.... do not condemn others who use other versions. We just compare them to the KJV and where we see an issue we go with the KJV.
Now... I hoped to hear you speak on Romans chapter 1. This truly does condemn gay marraiges and all things homosexual making them understand the things they do are worthy of death....
Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one
Great Sermon! I think your issues with homosexuality are right on. I would add however a few things. 1. Jesus said "I have followed my fathers commandments ..." then he said something very important... Like I followed my fathers commandments I want you to follow my COMMANDMENT.. one commandment not the law.... that one commandment... love one another as I have loved you... WHen taking this into consideration and also everything He gave to Paul to give to us like Romans chapter 4 we learn that as far as being made right with GOd we are not under the law.... does this mean that God's law is void? No it is there to show us the moral values of God and is the measuring stick for us to understand how very short we fall from that set of values... hence we need a savior. I always am very careful to make sure my congregation understands these things. Salvation todya is not about following the law it is about resting in the one who did it for us.. the Lord God Christ Jesus. since we were and still are not able to be sin free this is an ongoing thing hence Romans chapter 8 final 2 verses and Acts 13:38,39. All things means all things friends....
I am not telling you Homosexuality is correct and I certainly am one of those KJV only guys for very real reasons. However I do not condemn those that use ot
Great Sermon! Good overall message. Driscoll however, is another story. He was caught flat out lying about the strangefire conference. He claimed his books were confiscated by security, but you can go on youtube and see a video of him clearly telling security that the books were his gift to them and that he wished for them to take them and do whatever they'd like to with them. Driscoll flat out lied and was caught. Doesn't sound like a man seeking unity. He is a pastor in the public spotlight so he needs to publicly confess and repent. His strangefire appearance seemed like nothing more than a PR stunt to promote himself and his book. Love the program guys.....keep up the good work
Well said, pastor!!!!!!! You are brave. When I saw this title, I felt amazed because these days it is rare to listen to the Truth. So many so-called "believers" are deceiving others and themselves as well. They are ignoring God's words, and simply do not care what God actually said(and still says). Instead, they are trying to satisfy people.
Thank you pastor! please keep going on!
We are all imperfect, but as we confess our sins and try to choose the righteous road, God's way, then we all will His enter the Kingdom.
However, if we insist the crooked way is the right one, we cannot be forgiven and delivered.
May the Lord forgive all of us and lead us to his righteousness!
Great Sermon! I enjoyed the substance of what you discussed. I wished you had selected another author to approach the subject through than this one. It seemed like there was an elephant in the studio with you the whole time.
NECESSARY TRUTH It is the GOODNESS of God that leadeth thee to repentence...glad this has been brought out to reveal the futility of fear mongering preaching.
I fear however, that the usual treatment of women by fundamentalists will eventually sour this woman on our churches and lead her out as it has me...for she will find little of God's goodness toward women when she discovers teachings like the Article 10 of this website and realizes she and all women are in a dead end for serving our Great God in any serious capacity other than in the kitchen or in dangerous foreign fields, alone...only there will she find the freedom to tell others of His goodness for we prefer our women SILENT and helpless with their hands tied behind their backs. We have no room for God's Jaels and the fierce Godly women of Judges 9:53 and 2 Samuel 20:19 or the many Bible women who acted on their own without consulting male leadership, like Abigail and Hannah and Mary the mother of Jesus and most others as well. We have imposed our culture on women and made them timid and useless for God, unable to make Godly decisions in the churches or to go out and teach others the scriptures unless they leave their home churches and go elsewhere. "LET MY PEOPLE GO THAT THEY MAY SERVE ME." saith the Lord.
Great Sermon! This is a testimony to the evangelistic influence of kindness, hospitality and wisdom.
if what the Bible says is true (and it is), then we are all in big trouble eternally (until we obtain the Savior).
Jesus made it clear in John 7:17 that it was only through obedience to God's will that one could know the truth.
Great Sermon! In response to the former post, if you read the Declaration of Independence, taxation was among the minutest of the concerns of the colonials. The British were burning their towns, murdering them and raping their lands.
They rightly petitioned the King for redress of every single grievance they had and were ignored. Again, they were being murdered by the English and their lands pillaged as happened back in England. In those days, it was bow to the Church State or die.
The scripture says there is a time for war (Ecclesiastes 3:8). The American colonies had their own established representative legislatures which the King ignored and bypassed in attempt to establish absolute rule over them.
So at what point do unified men under God get to break off from tyranny and seek to establish righteous government? To say the American Colonists were unjustified in dissolving their allegiance to the British crown is like saying that Israel was not justified in their Exodus from Egypt under the tyranny of Pharaoh. God called them out from under an ungodly Tyrant in order that they may properly serve Him.
If there was ever a justified war in the history of the world, aside from the wars Israel fought in the OT, it was the American Revolution.
My $0.02 worth.
Great Sermon! Young men arent motivated BECAUSE young women ARE....and opposites attract. When women are motivated into the huuuge careers, men feel useless, and are around other older men who have no lifeskills, and are/were on pot. This is 2013, not 1963 when many kids knew how to do BOTH
Great Sermon! Excellent program, particularly near the end regarding the call and the challenge to repent of unbiblical perspectives of marriage, money, and everything else. There is no question that being delivered from sin by God through Jesus Christ changes EVERYTHING. As II Corinthians 5:17 says: "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things become new." May God bless you and strengthen you to continue the good work of Generations Radio on His behalf!
Great Sermon! In reference to Dave's comments about the effect of an IT age on pastors... Once the total number of uploads hit a critical mass of about 3,000 sermons for every single Bible verse, the potential for a "pick your own doctrine potpourri" is endless. As more pastors plug into the Internet, ironically, each is becoming more unplugged from his congregation.
Great Sermon! I appreciate this program, particularly the point about early or young marriage for young men. This needs to be taught much more often in churches. If they remain single too long, it is practically guaranteed that some type of sexual sin will occur, and the consequences of violating God's law will inevitably surface in their later marriage.
Great Sermon! I've just watched the old show GOOD TIMES about an inner city family. The father is in the home, and had too much pride to take from the government.There was one on today with many women in it, but one of the ladies who was pregnant didn't want to take the welfare although she was newly widowed and needed it (she was tempted to put her child up for adoption) Since it was set in the 1970s, i believe it was the 1980s when things started getting out of hand, with the SONY WALKMAN which started the ROTTEN HIP HOP CULTURE..
LBJs stuff didn't get bad since many of the older people were still alive, and who were either soft christians, or at least moral who could talk their kids out of welfare, especially for boys. Now many boys don't even KNOW who their GRANDFATHER IS much less their FATHER. I also believe many people today born in
Christian homes, with two parents, are still affected by this. Many born in the 1980s have never seen normal IMO
