Great Sermon!!! Well Worth The Listen!!! This is a great sermon and very needed in our day! At a time when preachers like Mark Driscoll can blaspheme God and still be embraced by the likes of Piper and Keller, it is obvious the fear of God is lacking in many who profess to be Christians. Thank God for men of God like Bill McDaniel who still preach a Holy God and His Holy Word!!! Soli Deo Gloria!!!
A clear, fresh approach. This sermon really makes it clear. I am used to hearing the first chapter of Ephesians droned over and over to make the point of limited atonement, while the scriptures Pastor McDaniel uses are simply put and to the point. This should be on everyone's top sermon list and should be required listening for universal salvation proponents.
Great Sermon! How many people have been duped by these 3 words... God loves you? Where are we instructed in the scripture to tell everyone that God loves them? Jesus told His disciples that, "You will know them by their fruits" (Matt. 7vs16).Jesus told His sheep to be fruit producers and examiners. He never instructed them with the command to tell people that God loved everybody. Why didn't Paul tell Agrippa that God loved him. Did Paul tell the Men of Athens that God loved them? How about Moses to Pharaoh? John to Diotrephes? Elijah to the false prophets of baal? God's love is on those to whom He gave to His Son (John 6 vs.37). God's gifts of grace, mercy, peace, joy, forgiveness, repentance and yes...love is not upon all nor is it given to all.
Does God Love Everyone? Dear Pastor McDaniel, We commend you for preaching the truth of God's Word, for truly, the revelation of the entire Bible is the Gospel of Grace to ALL those FOR WHOM CHRIST DIED. The key to understanding the nature of salvation is to be found at the cross, in the substitutionary atonement of our LORD Jesus Christ. Christ died for HIS people (Matthew 1:18-21). We pray that your soul will continue to be enlightened by the Spirit of Christ to preach the love of God to His Own people every time you preach and from every verse in Scripture. Then, your opening apology to the congregation will not be necessary. Your congregation must hear and will come to expect this message every time you speak! You must answer the question, before God and man, "Does God Love Everyone?" Yes! Everyone for whom Christ died! The ones who will not hear are none of HIS. Fear not! Quit ye like men!

Timely, New York Passes Gay Marriage Let us lament and complain very loudly, and protest against the New York legislature's passing of "same sex marriage" on Friday! Has American gone completely out of its mind, and insane? This is a first in human civilization, the pretended "marriage" of same sex couples. The entire animal kingdom, which mates by both species, and only in heterosexual pairs, will stare in astonishment and the weird and unnatural perversion contrary to the plain and self evident design of God! Will this not provoke His judgment further? Has American become like Sodom?
Great Sermon! Thank you Pastor for this excellent and timely message regarding the sin of homosexuality and the growing trend of acceptance. I pray the "church" will stand its ground since it represents the bride of Christ.
Powerful, Important Sermon It has become politically-incorrect to speak plainly what the scriptures teach about the Jews being guilty of crucifying Jesus Christ. A new persecution is mounting up, whereby the ADL (which authors hate-crime legislation) and other Zionist organizations call it "anti-semitic" to preach this. But should we be surprised? Who killed not only Christ (albeit by the providence of God), but also Stephen, and the apostle James (Fox's Book of Martyrs)? Who "took an oath" to kill Paul in Acts?
Jesus replied to Pilate, when asked why he made no answer: "You would have no power unless it had been given you from above, FOR THIS REASON HE WHO DELIVERED ME UP TO YOU HAS THE GREATER SIN"--i.e. Judas, and the conspiratorial Sanhedrin under the high priest Caiaphas, "who sought to kill him", which is repeated frequently thru the gospels. Israel, the Jews, must acknowledge their sin and repent, as Peter preached, before God will restore their land (see JewsagainstZionism.com). But also, Paul tells the Gentiles, "Be not high minded (that the Jews are cut off), BUT FEAR, for God is able to graft them in again". Has the "time of the Gentiles been fulfilled", is it time for judgment to come, as was done to Jerusalem, for Gentile apostasy, and apostate modern Christianity?
Powerful Preaching! The bold sermon refutes PC churches who fear saying plainly what God abhors, and is worth hearing in its entirety as he compares and traces the condemnation of this provoking sin against God throughout scripture, recalling that Sodom was "an example" for us to heed.
This strong message is even more relevant in light of this last weeks UN Resolution on Gay Rights (which the U.S., without our representation in truth, affirmed) and because of Obama's attendance this week at a homosexual-activist event in New York (as President, who claims to be Christian) on June 23, 2011, in which the New York Times writes:
"This week, he will headline a $1,250-a-plate ‚ÄúGala with the Gay Community‚ÄĚ in Manhattan, his first such event as president; *on June 29, he will host a Gay Pride reception at the White House*.
"Hate evil, you who love the Lord", writes the Psalmist.
Powerful, Needed and Rare Sermon! A powerful and clear sermon that proves the heresy of modern Christianity and it's False Gospel of "God loves you and offers a wonderful plan for your life" (made popular by the Four Spiritual Laws tract from Bill Bright's Campus Crusade for Christ, which infiltrated a generation ago). The new gospel ("another gospel") of "God loves **you**" is an unscriptural innovation, not found in New Testament preaching, *presumptuously proclaiming something certain toward all individuals*, indiscriminately, universally, and equally, that only God would know in his secret Providence--i.e. Jacob vs Esau! Jesus said he talked in parables, to hide the truth from some, "lest they hear and be saved", did he not?
Before this late 20th century innovation, "God is angry with the wicked every day" and "*hates* all workers of iniquity" (Ps. 5:5) was preached, and "unless you repent, you will all likewise perish", faithful to scripture. Telling the sinful, openly wicked, or self-righteous, that "God loves you", is not only presumptuous, but countenances them in their sinful way to destruction! It is the very premise of that heresy, Universalism!
The speaker makes short work of this heretical foundation, proves it to be false, comparing scripture with scripture, with boldness and clarity.
Great Sermon! Pastor I love your bravery and faithfulness. I must confess that I do wish you had ended with a word of hope for these poor lost sinners, that there is forgiveness and reformation even for them at the foot of The Cross, and in the Blood. Thank you, though, for your stance. -Kay
