Excellent exposition of II Peter 1:1-2 Thank you for your study and clear exposition of the beginning of II Peter. As a Bible study leader in my church, your background work has given me good information and saved me some preparation time. For study of a book warning of false teachers, I so glad to know that there are good teachers of the truth feeding the flock today!
Revealing Sermon! The 3 Christian areas that has had a negative impact on Christians growing in God are well described here. Satan does have many ways to keep Christians from learning the Gospel and knowing Christ Jesus more deeply, and we will become aware of how we can overcome Satan's deception from the teaching of this message. Study the Holy Scriptures daily and read and listen to Fundamental preachers/teachers on SermonAudio.com regularly.
A Strong Teaching Sermon! Here again we have an eye-opening message that touches on many problem areas for Christians. But to find the Truth, "Be not conformed to this world; but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God." and "Do not love the world or the things of the world, if anyone lives the world, the love of the Father is not in him."
So concentrate on study the Holy Scriptures first and foremost and don't let those secondary features crepe into your Christian life and take away the greatest priorities
Revealing Sermon! This sermon will open your eyes as to where you stand with the 5 Christian topics presented here. All have their place in the life of God's children, but unless to put the emphasis on serious study of the Holy Scripture before these others, you will lose the most important blessing your get from detailed study of the Gospel and of Christ Jesus -- these are what lead a person to salvation but it only comes from serious study. There are many outstanding teachers on SermonAudio.com who can help you over the difficult parts, but you must take the initiative to do your part. This message will indeed annoy and irritate some listeners, but it contains much truth, so do your serious studying first.
Great Sermon! Good to hear. Also, if we understand that God called us for His purposes alone, we'll find more comfort in His plan. We must avoid, at all costs feasting on media such as WND Faith that seems to take our minds away from the eternal things Colossians 3:1, 2; and fill us with lust through "Feed," another media source. First, we get their gossip (James 3:5, 6; then prayer as an afterthought. The entire chapter should be masticated by the so-called Christian habitually exposing the failures of others. Bad news always causes depression. But when Christians stuff negativity down our throats and blinds us with the sins of others, is shows they are not pleased with the one God exalts through the ballot box while at the same time weakens our faith.
Great Truth Well done Thad.
When I think of racism with the church, I can't help think of the parable of the Good Samaritan.
Pastors line their pockets with donations just to move away from the very people they need to mingle with to reveal that God is no respecter of persons/race. Jesus intentionally traveled a restricted road to meet the woman at the well.
The hearts of many remain dark because the shepherd is not dealing with the root cause of racism's societal impact. Many emotional and mental problems have their roots in racism. We put people in bondage; not allowing them to freely choose.
Here's a bit of irony. No Korea's president made a remark about our current president. The media is promoting this as a racist remark. Yet, the education system is teaching all races that they have primal ancestry. So then, is it not racist when the educational system indoctrinates our children?
We are allowing man to make monkeys even out of preachers who avoid bridging racial divide here in America. Other countries don't have these problems.
Christians need to live lives of intentionality and substantiality - break down the walls of racism and lose their lives among people who need the Lord who frees them. Many people in Jericho have been robbed, beaten down,forsaken & left to die.
SUPER CLEANSING SERMON An urgent call to come to the waters of life. Isaiah 8:20 came to mind. A liar ". . . no light in them."
Imagine not caring that Jesus was put to death BECAUSE of this very sin. God has revealed Himself through His Son and yet liars suppress revealed TRUTH. Do they realize that they are among those who said "Let him be crucified:" We will not have that man rule over us. They call Him "Lord" while at the same time not wanting to be saved by Him (Phil 2:11).
Every tongue will confess Him as LORD, but not savior. So then all professor have to examine themselves to see if they are really in the faith.
Great Sermon! ‚Äú A Message for Blind Pastors ‚ÄĚ
You have counted the cost of discipleship by losing your "self" in the will of God who sent a Savior to die BECAUSE of us. You will assuredly be ostracized by some lip service preachers/Christians, because of this message; those who call you brethren. May God strengthen you in the inward man, and bless you abundantly in every way. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for yielding to the will, work, and plan of God for His glory and the good of man. Most of all THANK GOD!

I needed that! I am commenting on my sermon. God used my study and prayer time for that message in some powerful ways. I had been so down and discouraged and defeated. I was uplifted and encouraged and strengthened. I find the more I seek to understand what God has done for me the better off I am. I hope many others are blessed by the doctrine of forgiveness.
