Bold and To The Point This was the third sermon preached or proclaimed by Pastor Adams that I listened to today. I listened to this one because my wife and I had had an argument, and I was looking for help. The help came, and more than help as he emphasized that marriage was more than mere emotions, nor is it mainly based even on something as basic as compatibility. That last point amazed me. Rather, the basis for marriage is as deep as creation itself, and of our individual and social identities. Marriage is not primarily psychological (Adams does not express his thoughts this way, but I am interpreting here) but is spiritual through and through and is foundational. He asks the question, why is it that sex belongs only in marriage. At that point, I stopped the audio and we called our daughter into the room to listen as he gave the explanation. It should be convincing to any young person hearing it, especially if they are already believing in Jesus Christ. Pastor Adams also repudiated the desire to normalize homosexual marriage or unions as being decidedly wrong-headed and leading society astray. It was a wonderful tour do force of Biblical power as the word of God spoke directly from the pulpit into our hearts. Thank you.
Direct and Simply Expressed, Yet Profound This sermon ultimately does not reside "in" us, but comes from an almighty God, Creator of Heaven and Earth,
who can somehow transform the devastation of torture and murderous persecution into tremendous kingdom growth and renewal. We have to get to the point where we can look beyond even the most horrific tales of persecution into the power that is the presence of God, especially as far as evangelism and saving of souls goes. Pastor Adams reveals these truths in a compelling way, and if, like me, you sometimes find yourself more timid than you would like to be regarding your witness, then you will be MOST ENCOURAGED by this sermon. Amen.
Timely and Powerful Sermon! During family devotion this past week, we have been reading Hebrews 10 & 11. This powerful sermon gathered together our studies in a way that was more clear and at the same time more comprehensive than
our own conversations on the topic of substitionary atonement. Especially for the sake of our 16 year old daughter, I had tried to clarify (1) why certain educated unbelievers argue that substitutionary atonement is "immoral" (sic), and explain what the answer to them would be, and (2) to flush out the deep meaning of the substitution (sometimes called "vicarious atonement"). Pastor Adams covered the ground better than I could ever hope to, and my wife and I were blessed listening to it today, 10/21/12. In fact, I listened twice as she had arrived home only after I had done my first run through. Thank you Pastor Adams for this profound preaching.

Great evidences. The transformation of the disciples and the history of Christianity are arguments for the resurrection of Christ. Great internal evidences from the New Testament for the resurrection.

Great Sermon! Dear Pastor, Thnak you for your sermon. I am a missionary in Nigeria. I listen thru the internet (thank God for it). You'll never know where you (seeds) words will be planted or how great the harvest on earth. Be encouarged today. The nigerian believers like a chorus that says 'God is bigger than what people say'. He is indeed! God bless you, your family and church, In Christ alone, Lia Leigh.
Peace in Jesus Christ! Amen! As a Jewish believer, I especially enjoyed this sermon. The longstanding hatred or wall of hostility between man and God came down through the great atoning work of Jesus Christ. All longstanding ethnic and religious hatreds will fall and do fall in Christ. Yet there is a politically correct antagonism to that truth.
I would agree totally with Dr. Adams' assessment. My whole life was truly transformed when I became born again --transformed for the better by any standard, yet ONLY because of Jesus Christ -- because of Who He Is and What He Did not because of who I am or what I chose [sic] to do. So, my brother, who's a psychiatrist wants nothing to do with me. He told one of my cousins that I went off the deep end with this Jesus "stuff." He wrote to me that he finds it "off-putting" when someone believes they have THE Truth. Dr. Adams ties all of this together in a wonderful way,he explains the unity found in Christ (my wife is Asian), he explains the philosophy of types like my brother; yet at the same time, he always puts Christ first in the sermon. Listen to this sermon and rejoice!
