Great Sermon! I really learnt a lot from this challenging and uplifting sermon. Relieved to hear that Christian manliness is more than just chest thumping, discussing biblical issues over a beer, or going to the woods...!
Clarifying Just want to say that the versions I meant are horrible paraphrasing (like the Message) gender neutral, blurring idolatry worship, etc. versions. I am not meaning NIV, NKJV or similar translations.
Informative! Thanks for the information. Although there are some "anti-Christ agenda driven, have the nerve to be called a translation" versions around, I have found that most Biblical ignorance/confusion come from folks opening the Bible only at church, at the once a week/month Bible study, or never at all. And plenty of people read spiritual things, like devotions, and think they're getting fed the Word of God.
Dependence. Complete Dependence in on The Holy Spirit. Beautifully Depenndent to bear the Beautiful Fruit of Holiness !!! And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it. Psalm 90:17
Great Sermon! Thank you. This excited my soul. I really shouldn't listen to some of these sermons at night because I get so caught up in joy of having brought home to me deeper and deeper Who Christ Is for me that I can't get to sleep. Oh what an awesome God, Redeemer and High Priest we have in Christ Jesus.
Just War? What the "White House has told us" has now absolutely been proven to be false, lies, and propaganda, of which Christian churches are guilty of parroting with examination. The principles of Just War are absolutely true and of Christian principles, but the facts and justifications and manner of war were anything but just. Listen to Larry Wilkerson's (Colin Powell's chief of staff, who helped organize the UN presentation) present testimony on youtube video (interviewed about Cheney's new book) where he confesses that they repeated fraudulent information which the neoconservatives used to justify war. Neither was the destruction of Fallujah or millions of civlians done according to the principles Moses gave in Deut. as the pastor here recites. Christians bear responsibility for blindly believing propaganda to justify their own prejudices. NO ONE IN IRAQ MADE WAR ON AMERICA on 9/11.
Great Sermon! EXACTLY what I needed. I have so struggled with self-discipline in every area of life. This message brings God's word to bear regarding the necessity of discipline and the danger of living without it. Life-changing message!
Great Sermon! Most Americans here have no desire to share the gospel. The Koreans come sacrificially laying down their lives. The British missionaries are excellent at learning language, as other European missionaries -- strong heritage, though now few in number. Brazilians and Filipinos come to work in factories and a few are faithfully having Bible studies. We are a few Americans still who care about Japan. We gather with believers from around the world, and we will continue to reach out to Japan, even if our churches back in the USA will forget us -- for our life is lowly and forgotten by America for the most part. Please pray for us. The language is difficult, and the spiritual attacks are silent and deceptive. We are not without hope, but we are often without support.
Thanks for being complete in your presentation! Thanks Pastor Jerry,
Always blessed when I hear the Word of God from you. Colossians 3:16 holds true in your encouragement to the young and old alike. Thankyou Lord for Godly pastors, preachers, and teachers who expound the Word through proper exegesis
