Not so accurate depection... MM starts out by misrepresenting Calvinism as hyper or theological determinism.
Secondly, does God hate anyone? The answer is yes.
Psalm 5:5, "The boastful shall not stand before Thine eyes; Thou dost hate all who do iniquity,"
Psalm 11:5, "The Lord tests the righteous and the wicked, and the one who loves violence His soul hates."
Lev. 20:23, "Moreover, you shall not follow the customs of the nation which I shall drive out before you, for they did all these things, and therefore I have abhorred them."
Prov. 6:16-19, "There are six things which the Lord hates, yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: 17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18 A heart that devises wicked plans, feet that run rapidly to evil, 19 A false witness who utters lies, and one who spreads strife among brothers."
Hosea 9:15, "All their evil is at Gilgal; indeed, I came to hate them there! Because of the wickedness of their deeds I will drive them out of My house! I will love them no more; All their princes are rebels."
Great Sermon! I am a 4 point calvinist and you are seriously in error and slandering John Calvin, you should do some better research. John Calvin didn't believe in infant baptismal regeneration read the institutes of christian religion, and your history recount of Servetus is completely inaccurate. please dig deeper before slandering men. God bless you.
Great Sermon! Ever since Adam the corrupted bloodline has been passed all the way down to us today. This blood keeps us separated from God as Father. Now this is why it was so important that Jesus could not be born from the seed of a man or he too would have inherited the corrupt blood line which would render Him not being able to walk with God as Father, the Father was with Jesus reconciling the world to Himself. Jesus said regard these miraculous and supernatural things, that it's my Father who is with me doing it. Jesus had to be tempted too, but He chose to obey his Father and God so He could remain in relationship and also for our sake in the future. Jesus kept overcoming satan‚Äôs testing right up till he died on the cross and at the cross He died a perfect sinless man, His blood was still unblemished, spotless and pure and now because He overcame satan at the cross the battle was over, victory. How do we know Jesus won? He always called God, My God and My Father, on the cross when the sin of the world fell on Jesus for the first time IN His life, it did what sin does, it separated Him from His Father. He cries "my God why have you forsaken me?" no longer calls him Father. after 3hrs he cries "Father into your hands I commit my spirit". restored relationship. Apply the blood of Jesus.
Good and sound doctrine. Edifying! Dr. Bloom shows one can preach in depth sound doctrine and the gospel at the same time. I learned some new things about baptism that made me stronger in that doctrine.
Great Sermon! Dr Bloom,Thank you for making prophecy filling Umdetstandimg??I teach our Sunday School at Hillcrest Baptist Cjurch in Palatka,FL.
We are studying Exekiel 37 today. Your message helped me greatly.
Great Sermon! This is without a doubt the most important message for our time that I have ever heard in my 40 years in the ministry. There are many who are not going to see the total truth in this message, but they will criticize it at their own pearl, for this is not a message of a man but one that has come from God through a man. It is one of hope if you abide by it, or destruction if you decide to criticize it, for then you are not criticizing a man's message, but you are disagreeing with God, for everything that he has spoken was backed up with God's word.
Good, but... Very good sermon and full of Truth. Curious though what Dr. Bloom means by contemporary music being sin in our churches. =| If he means things like Casting Crowns, then I disagree entirely.
Excellent Series! I've listened to this series 2 times. The versions used by Stanley, MacArthur, Colson, Swindoll (any mega church) are not the preserved Word of God. All these men have caved to the pressure of wanting to please the so called scholars rather than take a stand for the true Word of God. It comes down to whether one wants to hear the Words of God or mans interpretation of God's words. Thank you Brother Stringer for paying the price and taking a stand for God.
Great Sermon! We listened to all three messages of this short series "Calvinistic Misunderstandings". What a blessing it is to listen to Bro. Marc expound the Scriptures. Excellent messages! I also would include the 8 message series "John Calvin's Folly".
Great Sermon! We cannot thank our Lord enough for the ministry of his Word from your pulpit, Pastor Bloom. What a blessing to know we share the same Spirit, Lord and Saviour. We lament together with you that the Truth is so rarely preached today, and that so many have abandoned the KJV, and forsaken lives separated unto him. May He bless you richly for fearlessly contending for the Truth once delivered unto the saints. If your Sermon Audio stats reflect a recent spike in your audience from Ontario, that's us (and our family of 6 believing teenagers and young adults) listening avidly to so many messages! The Lord led us to your ministry on a recent road trip and we want you to know that he is using your ministry to strengthen and encourage your brethren north of the border! We sincerely praise God for your faithfulness, Holy Spirit conviction and discernment in these Last Days. We pray fervently for your ongoing ministry, and protection for you and your entire family. Until we meet in Glory, with our kindest regards, the Teri family from Elora, South Western Ontario, Canada. PS please pray for our last 2 children to be saved, we need a major miracle!
