Great Sermon! Very inspiring sermon- lovely to hear a sermon on prayer that doesn't major on the failure of technique. Praying for family members and been through such a tough period, even being angry with god at times ( so need his forgiveness ). This is very helpful and I am beginning to understand why he has so far withheld his blessings. Thankyou xxx
Great Sermon! The ear-gate and eye-gate applications hit home.
This message, while only suggested by implication, should make every professing Christian to consider "plucking out the right eye" and "cutting off the right hand", sacrificing anything even lawful that gives occasion to temptation, that cause our hearts to stray--i.e. banning the TV (even wicked ads appear frequently during "news"), setting strict controls on internet and computer usage (blocking evil or popular chat, video, movie, and online TV venues), even ad images.
Proper use of the computer can be done in Filtering out almost anything wicked you should hate. Stamp out the sparks of temptation if you do not want the fires of sinful passions to consume you, or your children! Cell phones and computers if not restricted are a secret source of evil! "Bad company corrupts good morals", and youth should not be given instruments of temptation without restrictions.
We must wage a holy war against temptation if we are to resist sin, for entertaining evil thoughts within the heart will give birth to actual sin. How aggressively wicked is this modern world! which infiltrates every home, if we keep the electronic doors open!!
"Hate evil, you who love the Lord".
