Timely! We are wired, by our Creator, for self-education ... Specifically, for seeking Him. So, when young, smart people with both the intellectual fervor and eclectic drive to LEARN, run into so many hypocrites in this free pluralistic society(especially at the organized level, where the love of money and creature comforts is more apparent than the love of souls); the red flags drive them back into a turtle shell of distrust.
God needs to defeat the pure evil, and hypocrites need to suffer severe public loss and rebuke; but, in His consistency and holiness, He must leave rebellious society in bondage to the "leadership" of their choosing.
God said "seek" and "ask", and He will answer; and He will strengthen those who believe in Him, should we develop to personal will to do the rebuking - or - in a more contemporary sense, develop the political will again to call evil evil, and, throw off tyranny once again as is "our right, and our duty" to do so; selflessly, for our posterity's sake!
Great Sermon! Why are we not surprised at Michael W. Smith's soft stand with lyrics like this (from "Open Arms")?
"Never judge You, always loving
Needs to be what we become
Lifting up the lost, showing them the cross
Shining brightly like the sun"
He doesn't see God as somebody Who judges? Nobody his practical theology is soft.
Great Sermon! Pastor Sean,√ā¬† I have struggled for years understanding how to make sense of the Doctrine of Election. Sadly it seemed to me that the doctrine was taken and misinterpreted by many denominations so that most baptist's only opinion on election was to reject what they saw as the false teaching on it and have no opinion or explanation of the abundance of Biblical verses and references. I feel like I had been taught to skip over or ignore these verses and just reject any reference to "election" that I came across in the Scriptures. If a discussion or preaching was ever had about "election" it always ended up on Calvinism and was dismissed as heresy, but what am I to do with what is a continuing subject in the Bible. Like you mentioned, it runs from Genesis to Revelation with reference after reference...how do we understand this obviously important truth and how to apply it?√ā¬†Thank you for being a Godly leader and humble servant in tackling this doctrine. It was the most informative, applicable, solid preaching on the subject I have ever heard.
Time to get out of Sodom It's time to get out of the Public School (Screwel) system. It is shocking what they have progressively decided to prohibit. Have we overlooked what they are actually teaching and promoting? The rest of the world must look at our public schools and laugh. Every year they want more & more money to fill the childrens minds with more and more Godless filth and man-construed rules and morality.
Great Sermon! Thank you both for this podcast. I agree with everything you both have said. I talk with my teens often about sex and purity but now I will be using more appropriate Biblical terms like fornication. I can testify to the consequences of fornication and you all were spot on.
Great Sermon! I just listened to Rick warrens interview and I have to say he stood firmly with the bible. He did in fact say that the bible was his one authority but other peoples authority may be something else. He is to be commended for standing firm. The interviewer was the one who seemed fickle in his faith unfortunately. I found no play if words on ricks part.
I will say this when he said there are 3 sets of law and said the 10 commandments were moral laws even in the midst of the interviewer cutting him off I stand by him on what he said. He stood by sin is sin he didn't waver at all and did not seem uncertain about homosexuality. Make sure you do all things in the context of what people are saying and not just this or that part but the whole part. Jesus is Lord. God bless
Baptist Catholocism I think it is interesting that Lou uses "Baptist" lingo (Not our "Baptist lingo," thank God) where he says "ask God into your life." Isn't that something how he sounds the very same in that phrase to most evangelicals? Is there any wonder that most so-called "saved" folks are rarely assured of their salvation?
My husband and I sure enjoy your teachings! I am glad he used scripture; but am surmising that he assumed the majority of those there were Bible believers and not Muslim. Thanks SO much for your sermon!
pastor Bill was on fire! What a fantastic sermon pastor Bill. I needed to hear this in a very bad way. The church as a whole desperately needs to hear more sermons on the attributes of God. Unfortunately, most church members really do not understand God as he really is, it makes it so much easier to worship God when we know a, little something about who He is. Great job
