Truth Extradinaire I cannot tell you the extent to which your message made me "sick" of my SELF. It gets in the way of so many things of this fallen world contending for man's affections.
There are times I actually want to die because, in this life, there are blinders everywhere. Oh that I may see Him soon.
Your message publicized my life and struggles to "CONSIDER HIM in all things.
Thank you. And may our great God and Saviour be pleased with the responses of each hearer to walk worthy of His calling in Christ Jesus.
Great Sermon! So good! EVERYONE needs to hear this.
The ancient paganism is alive and operating around the world today as the 'new paganism' . Very, very helpful information about false worship and idolatry today.
Also, the PDF that you have made available is extremely helpful.
We don't call it Amazing Grace for nothing Stubborn, Disobedient and a Whirlwind of Disgrace. Unless the LORD Almighty had left us some survivors, we would have become like Sodom, we would have been like Gomorrah. (Isaiah 1:8)
fantastic series.. I'm inspired I am enjoying the book that you kindly sent me and I see how it is connected to this series.. very challenging and encouraging.
Thank you so very much
Thanks for giving it to us straight Thank you for giving this topic some attention. Sadly, I have seen those who are dear to me walk into this trap of entertainment...I read your PDF text and just wanted to point out just a couple of minor errors: I think that it is "adidas"?, "straitjacket" instead of straight jacket and you were probably typing so quickly that you wrote "toys are not commonly linked.." I'm thinking that you must have meant "toys are now..". :) I think that your point about the sabbath is valid. However,I think that "legalism" is usually misused today more in regards to what one does to obtain salvation rather than what one does out of obedience. People tend to take Paul's explanation of liberty and suggest that it is all inclusive. Common sense would dictate otherwise. He certainly wasn't suggesting that sinful things were okay (i.e. pornography, prostitution, drug use, today's alcoholic content in beverages,etc.)and I might add syncretism as well -(mixing that which is unholy with that which is). Out of naivete or ignorance, we need to drop the lie of christmas and easter..That which is false mixed in with the Truth is always more detrimental than that which is completely false. Thank you, again.
Great Sermon! Sermons like this are always relevant. I needed this warning myself. I have been online since before that term had much meaning, starting in 1991 before their was much of an internet. But there are also gold mines online. The Post Reformation Digital Library is my greatest discovery this year. www.prdl.org This weekend I finished a journey looking through the titles of every Puritan work that is cataloged. The addition by Princeton Seminary alone is incredible. I have found names I never knew existed and narrated many on my own web site. Last night I was still affected by this preface, Parable of the Ten Virgins, Benjamin Stonham, 1676. He wrote, " As in all ages it has been Satan's design to blind the minds of men even from our first parents, whom he soon rocks into a dead sleep, with all their posterity, in which they have lien until now, had not Christ awakened them: so ever since and more eminently in the last times is he so employed, all things concurring to the accomplishment of his design. This is the critical hour, and the last application, those that do not then recover, perish forever. Were we sensible of the present danger of such nature, we should not be offended at plain dealing." And Thomas Taylor, Parable.. Sower, "How far a hypocrite may go in the way to heaven...
And that is the Gospel! Praise God for this message, Christ came and died for our transgressions though He himself was pure and holy, He became sin for us that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. May God continue to use Ptr. John Macarthur in spreading His Word, the true gospel amidst the prosperity gospel preachers and other counterfeits all around us! God keep you Ptr. John and God bless Calvary Bible Church!
The Best Rapture Sermon You'll Hear The pastor covers a great deal of Bibblical terroritory in the message to provide a clear and complete picture of what is one of the most important teaching in the Bible.
