Great Sermon! I think this is one of those times when I have to disagree- I think that pastor monte has mis understood the messianic movement - I have been part of that movement for around 6 years and my witness is that Christian liberty is paramount - it celebrates the fact that Jewish believers and Christian believers are truly one body and that the old testiment is the basis for the new testiment. We celebrate the old testiment Jewish feasts not because we are earning our salvation but because they are biblical and fulfilled by out Jewish messiah. We worship the Jewish god Yweh- the sacrifice of Yeshua was the fulfilment of the law- in him ' it is finished' - dear pastor monte please research the messianic movement before you make such sweeping comments. You maybe suprised by what you find. As in all true movements of god - there will be immature believers and false professors but I challenge you on the fact that the messianic movement is taking believers back to the law- that is simply not true.
Great Sermon! Age of accountability You mentioned the age of accountability in this sermon. One pastor I've listened to said this. In the garden of Eden, the first thing that happened when Adan and Eve sinned was they became aware of their nakedness and were ashamed. So, he theorized that when a child reaches the age of accountability, he/she will become aware of their nakedness and become ashamed if they are seen.
Great Sermon! This sermon made me think of my grandfather who got saved in the last few years of his life. He spent the rest of his life reading his Bible and loving Jesus Christ. I'm so thankful I know one day I'll see him again in glory.
Great Literally Interpretive Sermon! ".... ¬∂ This is beyond all others THE PSALM OF THE CROSS. It may have been actually repeated word by word by our Lord when hanging on the tree; it would be too bold to say that it was so, but even a casual reader may see that it might have been. It begins with, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" and ends, according to some, in the original with "It is finished." For plaintive expressions uprising from unutterable depths of woe we may say of this psalm, "there is none like it." It is the photograph of our Lord's saddest hours, the record of his dying words, the lachrymatory of his last tears, the memorial of his expiring joys. David and his afflictions may be here in a very modified sense, but, as the star is concealed by the light of the sun, he who sees Jesus will probably neither see nor care to see David. Before us we have a description both of the darkness and of the glory of the cross, the sufferings of Christ and the glory which shall follow. Oh for grace to draw near and see this great sight! We should read reverently, putting off our shoes from off our feet, as Moses did at the burning bush, for if there be holy ground anywhere in Scripture it is in this psalm...."--Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Treasury of David
Great Sermon! This was a very helpful discussion on how to respond to irritating people. Very challenging but spot on. Having quite a few irritating people in my life ( at all times) I was very interested in any means to overcome the natural mans response.
Great Sermon! Great sermon. Certainly worth sharing. For the comment that our #1 enemy is Satan, I wonder who people think is behind Islam and all the other false religions in the world. God Bless.
Great Sermon! Very good message n the subject of honouring our service men and women - one thing that always strikes me though is how people from America feel safer with guns - like you only have to do the maths to work out how many more deaths you have from gunshots in the USA compared to non gun owning societies - very very funny psychology !!!
