Great Sermon! Outstanding teaching on church history. I hope this series will continue -- I'll be looking for it.
I'm a member of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, CA, pastored by John MacArthur -- so I appreciate good teaching.
Hmm,... FYI-Prozac destroyed my life and my health forever. Zoloft also nearly killed me, causing me such confusion that i drove head on into an oncoming lane of traffic.When i later turned to Christ but was given Paxil, it was then i realized that while on it i could not hear the Holy Ghost, that the drugs numbed me to external stimuli and lowered my inhibitions, making me nonchalant or indifferent to sins. Psychiatry is nothing more than modern day witchcraft and yes, it IS a sin to take mind altering drugs, even when they are prescribed. That is why God gives His children the holy Ghost, to be able to discern right from wrong. All psychology is rooted in secular humanism and while they give lip service to the existence of God, an afterlife, and the soul, that is all it is, lip service. Many ppl are suffering from grief, lonliness, post trauma or abuse and don't even realize it, so they don't understand why they are depressed and don't know that it is normal to be depressed after having gone through unresolved grief/trauma,etc. Depression is a SPIRITUAL condition. The drugs will numb you to things, but they can never truly give you the happiness you seek.
Fantastic and helpful An excellent overview of the Baptist view of the church, pointing out the history of persecution frequently inflicted on those who follow the Biblically-correct view of the baptism ordinance.
