Powerful Sermon! This is a fantastic message denouncing RC religion. It opened my eyes as to how wrong the RC religion is and how it's leading many followers to hell. While I was brought up a RC, I turned away from it many years ago, and in the past 10 yrs. I've been "born again" and have Christ Jesus as my Lord and Savior and have been blessed far beyond what I expected and desired. God is Great!
5 Minutes in Hell? So many reflections while perusing this sermon. Even 5 minutes of what Edwards describes is over whelming. But the idea that he presses that makes the eternality of punishment unavoidable is a missing theme in most concepts of God in our day. That is, that God utterly hates the subjects of His wrath, and mercy and hatred are inconsistent with each other. So there is no hope that after billions of ages He will suppose the punishment is enough, because then He would have to at once love that which He now loathes. Since Dec. of 1985 I have narrated Edwards' sermons and it doesn't get any easier to come to grip with his language. He used all thought at his disposal to convey such an awful reality. He was a master of communicating this solemn teaching.
Great Sermon! Here in America, we are taught nothing but lies. We are taught nothing but lies in school and the Catholic Church is not singled out. Spanish Inquisition was about Christians killing Moslems and the word Jesuit is unknown to Americans. By the way, the South was solid Protestant and Jesuits controlled both sides of the Civil War. All the destruction was in the South. That tells you where the Protestants lived. They killed Lincoln like they killed Napoleon. They were used and discarded. Thank you for being a man. Our Churches have none. The Pope owns them and all of our media forms and of course the White-House. God has opened my eyes and I will make it my mission to wake others from their slumber.
Great Sermon! The command to marry is not to the extent that some do not have the blessing of marriage. Marriage is a choice by both male and female, and no one can be forced to marry. The command is in light of the only choice of sexual expression is indeed marriage. It may come down to the reality that, at times, some singles will be more lonely than those who are married. This is an excellent sermon and good for both single and married to listen to. We in the church must model the grace and holiness God has for each of his children.
Who is sufficient for these things? Not long ago I read through page after page of Foxe's Book of Martyrs. Then I listened to two different audio narrations of this title. Here I was faced with a type of Christianity that is impossible for human nature unaided by Divine grace. But I admit there is no natural attraction to read about someone being burned at the stake for the cause of truth, a martyr beating his breast with one hand till it was burned to a stump (John Hooper). Then thinking of Watt's hymn, must I be carried to the skies on flowery beds of ease, when others fought to win the prize, and sailed through bloody seas. There is only one conclusion, only the Spirit and the Truth can enable anyone to endure and overcome. Still the meditation is what I feel I need to flatten my own pride and lay me in the dust to realize afresh, apart from Me, ye can do nothing. John 15:5

Lordship Regeneration There are those persons who say that can't believe in Lordship Salvation. So, let us call it Lordship Regeneration. What do I mean? In the new birth,the mind is enlightened, the will is renewed Ephesians 2:1, the enmity of the heart (Romans 8:7)is slain and the affections are changed from hate to love towards God. So if you have a "saint" who claims that he has been born again but won't bow to Jesus, still hates Him, and his mind is still in darkness, his profession is a lie and the moment he got to heaven, it will feel like hell to him anyway, because his heart would still prefer the company of devils. Spurgeon would never have taught that someone who has been justified by faith still has had nothing done to his depraved heart. God deals with both the bad RECORD and the bad HEART. But with this modern generation of professing Christians, they have mixed up justification and regeneration so if you tell them that they must bear fruit - which is an effect of the new birth, they cry LEGALISM. As if regeneration was a forensic term.
Great Sermon! I loved this sermon! I already knew what he preached, but I have been listening to a lot of preachers that are making our Lord's gospel difficult! It bothers me, so I needed to hear the Gospel the way Christ taught it! Please stop the Lordship Salvation preaching. We are all horribly equal sinners before our Lord!
Great Sermon! God started 2 teach me about christmas a few years ago, little by little,but i wasn't sure if christmas it self was ok. I stopped using the tree & decorations, but continued 2 put up some lights & dinner. Well after watching a few video's & ur video i will not be celebrating any of the traditional holiday's anymore. Thank u so much 4 this teaching. God bless!
Great Audio Book Choice I have often thought, as a book narrator, that if someone will listen to a book that they might otherwise not read, the hours of narrating is worth it. This is a great choice for a book. I know from experience that when we had 5 copies of this book for sale in our church book store, it didn't move. That is quite depressing, but I for one will listen to your narrations of this title and maybe the book will get the respect it deserves if others will listen as well. God be with you brother in your narrations.

Great Sermon! what a tremendous message from Pastor Martin of the time we now living in, and a reminder to all of us who are the Lord's to persevere, though all things may seem against us, not only in the spiritual battles but also in our afflictions and trials, which are great.
Do make sure you hear this message. It is God's right and perfect timing.
christian love, Rose & George
