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 !!!
Please Preacher As a true believer my number one enemy is Satan and this world. Some Islam people could be some of God's elect sheep. Ever thought of that? Satan controls this world and that includes the USA. Satan is allowed of God to set himself up to be worshiped as God in most so-called Christian churches. Christ says be not deceived (Matthew 24).
Great Sermon! Thank you pastor monte for speaking out so profoundly against anti semistism. It makes no sense that anyone supposedly filled with the Holy Spirit should be anti Semitic In any way shape or form. This message is even more important than it was when preached in 2007.
Great Sermon! This was a very interesting discussion. I am saddened that those who hold into Calvinism largely refuse to discuss these issues. I think we would all learn from each other if we had these discussions.
I did however have one thing that I wanted to highlight- I think the discussion of what is faith is at the core of this specific discussion. I believe that my faith is a gift from god - one minute I did not believe and was a scoffer- then I was presented by the gospel and quite miraculously I suddenly believed and have continued to believe for the last 30 years ( imagine breathing as an analogy - I do not consciously breathe- breathing is a gift of god ).
Also I cannot disagree with the concept of election - it is there in black and white:
29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Great Sermon! This is a very good discussion on practical evangelism - my only concern is that we make sure that the faith is in the shed blood of Christ and not the prayer ?
18Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Great Sermon! This, in my opinion, and from the revelation I have gleaned from the word of God, the truth. Just because, we as men, are unable to fully understand this it does not lessen the fact that this is the truth.
Great Sermon! Thank you so much for that - I had been listening to some dodgy things and that was truly balm to my ears.
1 THERE is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
Great Sermon! This is such a great message- it's so easy to get depressed when we look at the world - I forced myself to thank god in the middle of a trial a few weeks back and I cannot agree with you enough that thanking our Lord is such a balm to the spirit - there is nothing that he cannot do- he is in total control - thanks for confirming what I had just come to realisexxx
