Indisputable Insights Excellent message that diagnosis the cancer on American Christianity. So many mega churches with their rock n' roll bands and pastors in jeans and t-shirts have so lowered the bar that their brand of Christianity-lite requires no commitment to Christ, no evidence of sanctification, and no lifestyle changes. I see it in the young professing Christians I work with. They enjoy Hollywood movies and TV programs glamorizing homosexuality, use profanity, and see no great harm in drinking or premarital sex. To speak out against such things in favor of holiness is to be branded a "legalist." Yes, as you correctly observed, when the church abandoned Lordship and reduced Christ down to a friend who'll turn a blind eye to the frailties of our flesh the church was assimilated into the world. Perhaps this is the great apostasy the Scriptures foretold--less a mass exodus out of the faith more a slow, steady erosion brought about by compromise upon compromise. Thank you for a sobering message that inspired me to be more intentional in evangelizing.
Amen! Isn't it amazing when a man of God sticks to the scripture as opposed to the man centered theology that's so prevalent in the church today? What an uplifting message to be reminded that it's the bloody cross that made our salvation secure, and that was the work of the Father, Son and Spirit working together.
Great Sermon! Amen! what he said is;
"that's a ridiculous statement to say that if you go to hell it's because you sent yourself there...[b] NO friend [/b]... if you go to hell it's because a thrice Holy God sent you there, because God is a God who must punish sin!!
Jesus said in Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."
"baptismal regeneration has damned its millions through the centuries"
âbaptismal regeneration had damned its millions in this century tooâ
âyou must get under the Blood!!â
âThere is nothing the waterâ
ânothing in the decisionâ
âbut there is power in the blood!â
âgood people don't go to heaven... only for-given people go thereâ
âare your sins washed in the blood?â
âare you born from above?â
âYou must get under the blood of Christ to have forgiveness of sins!â
He then goes on to make a distinction between; baptismal regeneration; decisional regeneration; AND BIBLICAL REGENERATION.
Great Sermon! Dear Johnson
God bless you for this powerful preaching and these days are really dark days as i see even some good evangelical organizations are turning to companies.
How i can mortify the indwelling sin or persisiting sin?
God bless you in Christ
Repeating mistakes Reading the transcript of this has restated again awareness of our present state of lose. Since the 50s, the church has lost almost two generations: a substantial fraction of these to modernism; and by large, the main bulk to the world, and yes to utter perdition by shear skepticism. Parents and Christian leaders have given the young what they themselves wanted, craved or were immersed into, this is, what the flesh wants, the world and its appealing entertainment, tactics and gain, instead of restraining the access to it by word, example, practice and method. Many persist in this mode expecting different results, or simply hopelessly resigned to accept repeated failure in the lives of their grandchildren after seeing their children already lost to the same. Existing prayer meetings in many churches are âmending workshopsâ where church members smooth out with praying platitudes the pertaining issues of daily existence. There is no Spirit-originated prayer, so the mind of God is absent in the pleading; human âmindedâ prayers reign to no avail. May warnings as this, bring the remnant to their senses.
Great Sermon! I pray that God will use this sermon in the hearts of His remnant, He has caused to hunger and thirst for Christ's righteousness. I pray that God will encourage the listening Christian to pray and to ask for the "Old Paths". I pray that God will bless this sermon to the heart of the hearer and for the Glory of His own name. Thank you.
AMEN!!!!!!! I join you in prayer. We are desperate in our cry before the Lord for our nation. From the north, south, east and west, May the church awaken to her call. Time is so short and the laborers so few while a multitude of Americans are headed into eternity without Christ. Lord, break our hearts as Your heart breaks for each and every lost soul. We need a 'highway and by way' revival. It's time to come out of 'churchianity' with the fire of God burning in our hearts to bring in the harvest. The fields are white all across this nation.
Great Sermon! Thank you for preaching the simple, yet powerful truth of God's Word! May God pour out His Spirit one more time upon this nation in such an eye opening awakening of one's own desperate spiritual state before the Lord....a multitude of broken and contrite hearts, repentant and surrendered to Christ, born again by His Spirit. Lord, hear our prayers.
Powerful Sermon! I agree, easy believ-ism will not and cannot produce true converts, repeating the sinner's prayer only teaches seekers to say what we want to hear them say, it does not cause regeneration,
that can only be accomplished by the Holy Spirit of God!
Great Sermon! Amen Amen What a mighty God we serve! He is eager to forgive us and His Name is Holy! Jesus Christ My Savior Praise to you I don't know why God would save me, but I know He did just that, He saved me from the pit of hell, the church has always had tares but American Pride has incorporated the church and no one can refuse Satan temptations, PRIDE PRIDE PRIDE All I can do today is pray God forgive us, it starts so innocently and spreads like wildfire, Narrow is "The Way" to life, but people don't care, they are rude and arrogant, if only Jesus Christ could reach their stubborn hearts as He did mine.... He is Our only hope, He is my only love, Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saves a wretch like me I once was lost but now am found was blind but now I see.
