Great Sermon! I must say ditto to He's comment. It is a hard doctrine, yet it is truth and ultimately glorifies God in His justice. It was only after many years after being regenerated that, by His grace, I was exposed to the doctrines of grace. After much studying of them I came to see them as truth and today I embrace them as the truth that they are. Nevertheless am getting ready to listen to this a second time. I can't seem to hear too much of these doctrines. Possibly becase of my background as a catholic. I remember bow stunned I was to see who Christ was after I was born again from above. Even today im taken aback by the grace to see it and the increasing knowledge of His grace. Grace and faith, two things I knew nothing of in the religion I was brought up in. Thank you Bro. Caldwell. I am truly fed and discipled by your presentation of our Lord's Word.
Great Sermon! Reprobation is difficult doctrine but it's in the Bible. I always thought God passed over unsaved people, but pastor has taught rightly that God chooses some for salvation and others for damnation. We can't pick and choose verses from the Bible, but have to receive the whole Bible. If the word of God (Bible) crosses our thinking, we need to change our thinking. God is God and He never needs to justify himself. His counsels will stand. I appreciate pastor teaching this doctrine and will seek to understand more and more.
Great Sermon! Its amazing to see how interwoven the doctrines of grace are throughout the Bible. To realize and grow in the knowledge that salvation is all of God, makes for a life of tremendous gratitude to God for allowing me to receive and accept his gospel. I need to grow in thankfulness to God for this glorious truth that pastor Richard faithfully exposited here in the parable of the 4 soils. May God grant this to all believers in greater and greater measure.
Great Sermon! Wowwer...one of those bottom line sermons. This is the story of my life and any listener will confess that this is their story as well. Brought tears to my eyes of repentance and faith. God is good and his word is true and powerful. Pastor Caldwell's preaching is evidence that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Thanks be to God for giving us his Word-Amen
Great Sermon! One thing I love about this church, is that its serious. When it comes to right doctrine, praise, love..its serious. The sermon tonight was a great example of that. Whilst many churches would shy away in favour of more "palatable" - "ain't God great" - kinds of services, Pastor Caldwell calls it as he sees it, we today - just as ancient Israel once did - are quick to sing praise of God when times are good, but as soon as we hit a test, or when God's presence seems far away..we grumble, moan at how bad our lives are and rebel. I am just that person. Truly thought provoking! When the praise ends the grumbling begins. Thank you for giving me something so important to think about. Praise God that this church exists because without it I would not be where I am today, God always gives us what we NEED. Amen.
Great Sermon! Pastor Caldwell: Thank you for this great and needed sermon on "The Judgment of God". We are in desperate need for more sermons like this in the church of our day. Far to many Preachers are afraid to offend the sinner, so God is reivented.The church is surely blessed to have you. We all need to proclaim this wonderful gospel and know and honor this awesome God that we claim to serve. God Bless you,Pastor.
Great Sermon! Thank you. A wonderful completion to part one. I am always so grateful to our Lord for the giftedness He has planted in you for the maturing and benefit of us. You brought into your closing prayer what I wanted to say in this comment. In so many of your sermons, if not all, you always bring us to a place of challenge to examine ourselves in light of His Word you've just laid out for us. I was thinking, "What a gift to sheep that is" Additionally, once again I thank whomever for their promptness of making your sermons available. Many blessings.
Great Sermon! Sterling silver. Tho I know our God deals savingly with us without gender in view, but as a woman I'm always so moved by Jesus' tender interaction with women shown in His Word along with His loving interaction with me. Thank you Bro. Richard. Looking forward to part two this p.m.
Great Sermon! Only God and God Alone and no other speaks the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about Himself in all His holiness, His righteousness, His justice, and about dead man's radical depravity. What an amazing, amazing thing is the grace of God!!
Great Sermon! THANKS FOR THIS TEACHING. i HAVE RECENTLY HAD TO MAKE A DECISION AS A MISSIONARY TO BELIZE, TO MOVE MY MEMBERSHIP FROM MY SENDING CHURCH AS A RESULT OF THEIR CALLING A DIVORCED AND REMARRIED PASTOR. i HAVE HELD THE SAME POSITION THAT YOU HOLD FOR YEARS. www.graceoutreach.net
Great Sermon! Once I was young and now I am old. When I was younger and a young believer I loved and memorized this Psalm for its beauty and poetry. Today I cling to the Shepherd. Thank you and looking forward to next part next week.
Another Great Sermon By This Speaker! Richard Caldwell Jr. is a blessed preacher. I love listening to him. His messages are real, easy to understand, and provide practical instruction for all Christians. I have been blessed by several of his messages, and this one is no exception. Thank you, sir, for letting God speak through you.
