Great Sermon! A great sermon,strengthens your resolve to use this great weapon of warfare,exposes false motives of fasting but encourages and inspires the true and purposeful reasons to fast,thankyou Pastor Scott Brown
Very much appreciated! Dear Pastor Brown,thank you so very much for this fine presentation on such an important and very much neglected subject. It does indeed matter what women and our daughters wear. This is a serious subject which is tragically neglected in many Churches and Christian homes today. Modesty certainly does begin in the heart, and flows out to what one wears. May we by the Spirit subdue sin, Rom 8:13-14, as we obey His will from the heart. Richard Baxter in his treatise of "Self-Denial‚ÄĚ Practical Works,Vol. 3
Title: "Your Clothing Reveals Your Heart"
wrote "This vanity of apparel is the certain effect of the vanity of your mind. You openly proclaim yourselves to be persons of a foolish, childish temper and poor understanding: among the most ungodly people, they that have but common wisdom do look upon this vanity of inordinate apparel as quite below them."- "You also make an open ostentation of pride, lust, or both to all that look upon you. In other cases, you are careful to hide your sin and take it for a heinous injury if you are but openly told of it and reproved. How then comes it to pass that you are here so forward yourselves to make it known that you must carry the signs of it open in the world!"
May the Lord reveal these things to all hearts. Thank you again Pastor Brown
Good and rare stand I commend the depth of the teaching presented here. This is a wholesome stand for modesty against the unisex tendencies or our day. Pans identify women with an unbiblical philosophy and outlook of life. Even the argument for ‚Äėfeminine pants‚Äô violates the historical context in the Western culture, so well pointed out in the presentation.
The wearing of skirts or kilts encases women posture and activity into the God-given designed frame of propriety pertaining to her definite role. Contrary, pants, or trousers, redefine these limits, blurring, contradicting, or often erasing, biblical gender definition and roles.
Great Sermon! thank you for explaining the partaking of bread and wine like this. Make such a better understanding of why we do it and by doing so how we are justified and united deeply with Christ...His blood is absorbed thru the wine into the body......awesome
Wretched man that I am & Delivered man I am Amen! Only a man born of God would claim for himself "O wretched man that I am". The unregenerate would never arrive at that conclusion but rather everything but that conclusion ie. pre-conversion we exclaim O wretched man that you am or O wretched man that they am or O wretched man my boss am etc etc etc. Neither would the unregenerate claim deliverance from The Lord Jesus Christ but would claim deliverance in himself. So the Noble war goes on as we die daily with complete confidence that "He will complete the good work He began in you (Phillipians) and that complete work will be no short off absolute perfections "when we see Him, we shall be like Him" ! (1 John) Thank you Jesus ! And thank you Pastor for the edification !
Thank You Thank You Brother. Thank You for that scolding and scalding. I needed that. I needed that badly. I needed that now. Wounds from a friend can be trusted. Thank You Friend. When I was a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child, I thought like a child, but when I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
