not agreeing I agree that pets/animals should not be considered as equal to humans. I think some people go so overboard with their pets that it's sickening. But while I listened to this discussion I got the impression that you pretty much categorized it as sinful to even have a pet. Just because the Bible doesn't explicitly say thou shall or shall not bring a dog or cat into your home, why would you assume it is forbidden or unhealthy? Some people have dogs because they like the fact they will bark and alert them to home invaders. What about service animals? We generally don't plow our fields with horses anymore..so is it sinful to keep a horse for pleasure? To ride or for sport? The other gentleman said his friend "wasted" so much time volunteering at an animal shelter. Wow, really? So should we euthanize all dogs and cats that are homeless? Or because you think pets are not right to keep in the home we should just kill all dogs and cats because really what use are they to us in this modern age. Just have to disagree here. Don't try to justify your no pet stance with scripture when there is no mandate against or for it. B Animals were created originally for what? Adam didn't have to work the fields or eat them until he sinned. I guess they were just nice to have around as companions.
Great Sermon! The reason you are allowed to freely worship Christ in America is because brave men used weapons to defense this country. So you're saying Christains should be sheep and fight off the wolves attacking us with "words"? Yeah no thanks pastor. Go ahead and try and defend your family with the words that come out of your mouth. See how it works out for ya. Let your family die if someone comes in your house and kills your family. It is not evil to kill an evil person murdering innocent people.
Great Sermon! Over all God does forgive . What about schizophrenia do believe that's caused by only sin? There has to be more evidence. Are you a scientist? Most scientists don't even believe in jesus why listen to them.
Great Sermon! Excellent message! Thank you, Mr. Baucham, for all your messages on SermonAudio! I know you were against putting them up there, but I can tell you that they have really really helped our family on Marriage, Homeschooling, and family worship, and parenting! :) We praise God for you and your family!
The Stone family :)
Great Message Amen.
I wonder how many people know that "Anti" in the title "AntiChrist," not only means 'against,' but also means 'instead of.'
These catholic priests, the pope being the prime example, when they accept the worship of misguided people are standing in the place where Christ ought to be. It's just like Pastor Reid said, idol worship.
Because of Christ, we don't need to go to a pope to confess our sins! 2 Tim. 2:5 says "There is ONE God and ONE mediator between God and man, the Man Christ Jesus."
"For Christ is not is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God FOR US:" (Hebrews 9:24)
Oh Christ is the only one worthy of our worship! It was He who shed His sinless blood on the cross, not the pope!
Great Sermon! KJV didn't even get a mention!? Swhew... Not cool!
Ha! Thanks for this though, Pastor Reid. I've been weary of writing in my Bibles, but I think you may have broken me with this. I've never thought about it like that; these aren't the originals, and while it IS sacred and it IS the word of God, I don't think I'm going to defile it by underlining or jotting a quote or note or two...
I excited to start underlining now hahaha! Lord bless!
Great Sermon! this teaching was so powerful and full of truth it moved me to tears. even though I already embraced God's sovereignty in election, it hit so hard at my soul how God is GOD and we are not! I am so humbled that he chose me, and it was for nothing that I did because I did not deserve it! I am a filthy sinner who was agonized as I listened afresh to how God shows mercy to whom He will. Who does the modern church think it is assuming we choose,accept, we come to God? we cannot of our own "free will", because our will is a slave to our sinful nature. we are God rejectors and God haters from the start. All I can do is throw myself at his feet in gratitude and praise for saving me! Just because we cannot fully understand God's ways does not make it untrue. on the contrary. If it's in the Bible it is truth and we must believe and preach it, no matter how 'offensive' it is. Thank you Brother Mike for not backing away from solid Biblical truth and doctrine in exchange for popularity. Truth does divide, but Jesus said it would. All praise and glory and honor and power to our GOD!
Great Sermon! Hello and what a message! Every church should hear this brother speak!
What a blessing to hear our Lord's words through you,does Voddie ever come to the Hudson Wisconsin area or the twin cites?
Powerful Sermon! Brother Mike does a great job giving us insight into Peter as he grows from a simple fisherman to a great Apostle and teacher for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Outside of focusing on Jesus Christ, I am deeply studying the Apostles -- all great leaders and teachers of the Truth.
The Difficult Doctrine of the Love of God Thanks for preaching the Word! The love of God is certainly assumed by many and studied by few. The result has been a very strong held belief of the unconditional love of God for all people with little Biblical basis or clarity. For a very careful exegetical study on the love of God I would commend to you a short book by D.A. Carson. You can find the book on Amazon at this link, http://www.amazon.com/The-Difficult-Doctrine-Love-God/dp/1581341261/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1374768126&sr=8-3&keywords=The+Love+of+God+D.A.+Carson
Great Sermon! This is a powerful message and a very important one for us as Christians. Even such things as sighing over difficulties without saying anything, are a form of grumbling and complaining. 'Rejoice in the Lord always!'
Strong Sermon! Brother Mike lays it out -- our need to deny self-love and anything else that focuses on ourself. Today's church is in denial and error when it preaches on how we can develop ourselves to get the most out of life -- go for the most for ourselves -- be all you can be. In truth we should become a slave for Jesus Christ -- we should spend our life to bring Glory to God -- to help spread the Gospel. God will reward us in heaven for our Christian works.
Great Sermon! If believers would apply what is said here in every area of life, what a difference we would make in this world for Christ. We wouldn't depend on Washington politicians to do for us what only God can bring about.
Biblical! More of this type of questioning needs to happen. What's the reasoning behind what we do or don't do? Is it supported by Scripture or man's desires that satisfy the flesh? Great teaching.
