Great Sermon! Thanks, Ed. As someone who has never had a boyfriend, it is so wonderful to hear someone wants to respect single people. It is nice to be reminded that God does not view them as less than human- and nobody else should.
passionate preaching! I love your passion for the gospel! My favorite quote from this was " is there any jealousy in your heart for the worship of the one true God " Thanks for blessing me with the Truth thousands of miles away and months later.
Great Sermon! Good message. Thanks for your fighting the good fight and speaking the truth.
I especially appreciated a couple of things. One was exposing the lie that fornication shouldn't be answered with marriage, but with repentance.
The second was proclaiming the truth that most sexual problems are not sexual at all, but attitudes of bitterness, rebellion and other sins.
The greatest error of omission (It's arguable that it isn't an omission since the message was NOT on marriage) was to not EMPHASIZE (it can never be too strongly emphasized) that the marriage partners NEVER have authority over their OWN bodies in the area of sex and should NEVER act as though they do. (That would compel each to deal with areas that need repentance.)
Great Sermon! thanks Chris. I am a Christian and a non-american who has many friends that are Christian and american. Over the years, I have had very good discussions on how on average, an Christian Americans first think of themselves as American first and then Christian. I am glad you brought this point home because almost always, my pointing out this issues almost always invited "ooh, not being american, you don't understand."
Great Sermon! Very helpful and honest sermon. I used to be extremely lax concerning entertainment and I am convinced that there are many problems in my life I could have avoided if I had been more discerning in this area. Entertainment IS incredibly powerful and we need to guard our hearts and minds today more than ever.
Great Sermon! It is great to hear the teaching that many translations use dynamic equivilence. To have a variety of translations with varying degrees of literalness and dynamic renderings is a tool that many modern countries have today. It is useful, as people will still use the excuse, "I can't understand the Bible" and yet with all of today's helps, we should study to show ourselves approved !
