Forgive them 77 times, meaning infinite times. Matthew18:15-20 you must also quote 21-36. The whole passage is not about a "system" of judging, condemning & excommunicating your brother. It is about forgiving your brother infinite times because Jesus also forgave us infinite times.
1Corinthian5 that person was proudly sleeping with his father's wife. Unless it is directly applicable, who are you to judge what is a serious sin? "Holy Spirit will not allow Christians to sin this particular way?" Christians do continue to sin, so then none have the Spirit & hence all our faith is false?
You talks about expositional preaching., yet you are taking verses out of context to say what you want it to say. You are committing that very same sin/mistake!
Lost Christians can't see their sins. Have you considered how lovingly & patiently Jesus treated gentiles & tax collectors? Have you considered that the lost sinners need even more help than faithful believers? It is the sick that needs healing(Mark2:17). And yet here you are suggesting that the church abandons those lost sinners who needs the most help.
Why are you putting God to the test by placing a yoke on them that you yourself cannot bear?(Acts15:10) In Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor not counts for anything, but only faith working though love.(Galatians5:6)
Very helpful for your spiritual life of prayer! A power source of the prayers of the early church in Acts, Jesus praying on the cross, other saints prayers in the Bible, and great men of faith and prayer in history (ex: George Muller). This simple biblical practice from the psalms can be of great benefit for your prayer life if you take up the challenge
Great message! Vital Bible teaching on Proverbs 22:6 - Is this a guarantee that children will walk with the Lord: "train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart"? Dr. Street exegetes and explains this often misunderstood verse and exhorts parents in a balanced biblical way
Very important message for adoptive parents Pastor Borgman offers transparent wisdom that every adoptive or foster parent would be wise to consider. While every story is different, the help and hope will apply to many, and will help us understand more of God's adoptive love for us.
Great Sermon! Excelllent! Every parent needs to listen to Dr Street's expound on the path and the ways of a teenager... As always it begins and ends with the heart. Very solid and Biblical advice! Thank you!!!
Challenging Sermon! This message presents some of the most difficult duties and behavior that we as children of God must present to the world at large. To fellow Christians and to unbelievers we are to show the Gospel as Jesus and his Apostles practiced. By learning to act this way, we will be strengthened as True Believers.
Encouraging Sermon! This Thanksgiving message is inspiring to let us see all the blessings we receive daily from God. Brother Phil gives us deep understanding of how we as Christians should live each day. All that he said is something that would be most satisfying and Godly if we followed them every day. It's a message worthy of hearing regularly thoughout the years.
Great Sermon! I went to school with Drew and very much appreciate his approach to this subject (adapted from Rick Holland's teaching to Grace Community Church where he served with John MacArthur). While warning against dangers of dating, and wisdom of relationships years before readiness to marry, his focus isn't the precise steps or methods of courtship (which also isn't a foolproof formula or necessarily "biblical" as some propose it). He focuses on the principles of Scripture and doesn't make prescriptions from descriptions of how people got together in various ways in Scripture. This is from the Equip Conference Youth event on 10/18 that GCBC participated in at Cool Community Church.
Christ's Glory in all Scripture The glory of Christ book-by-book, beginning to end, especially at the end of this message is on display. If you love to see Christ uplifted, this message will be uplifting to you and help open your eyes to how the whole Bible fits together and points to the exaltation and glorification of Jesus Christ from Genesis to Revelation
