Great Sermon! Christian wedding vows include "to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse ... until death do us part." Without a caveat (e.g., "unless the other engages in adultery or abandons me") added to the Christian vow made in the sight of God, how may a Christian divorce and remarry another without commuting adultery?
Great Sermon! We were thrilled to hear this message by Brother Clarence Simmons. Clarence has become dear to us through the ministry of Chapel Library and our meeting at The Expositor's Conference in Mobile, AL. We will be listening to his other sermons as soon as possible.
A sermon that addresses our need Pastor Pollard continues with his excellent series on Culture and its influence on the Christian. In this sermon he deals with the issue of liberty and the consciences of others. We are reminded that actions have consequences! The sins you engage in will have effects, not only on you, but on your Christian brother and sister! We are reminded that Christians must have discernment. We can only have discernment if we diligently study the Old and New Testaments. Do you? Do I know the Bible as well as I should? If we are honest we would say no, repent and return to the Scriptures as the only rule for faith and action!
I thank the Lord that Pastor Pollard is preaching on such a neglected topic. May our Lord Jesus Christ use this sermon series to awaken us to the dangers of our culture and may we flee to the Rock which is Jesus Christ!
Great Sermon! I've been in church now for 11 years and have never heard discipline and discipleship taught like this. My children are 7 and 11. I have much to ask forgiveness for...but praise God! He can redeem the time!
Much Needed Sermon! Thank you, Pastor Pollard! Too often women in the church dress immodestly. We follow the example of the world in too much that we do, including clothing! This is a sermon that all Christians need to listen to. Thank you again, Pastor Pollard.
Whom will you serve? Thank you Lord for having Pastor Pollard preach this sermon. It reveals the deadly results of syncretism and it's effects on the church today. We face the same dangers as the church in the Old Testament, the same enemy and he uses the same temptations. Syncretism weakens the church and takes away our holiness, which prevents our being salt and light. Be warned Christian! Run the race that is set before you as if you would win the prize! Is Christ not worth all that this world has to offer? Is He not more glorious than anything or anyone else? What would you give in exchange for your soul?
What world view is in your music, literature and recreation Christian? Are you striving for mastery or submitting to slavery to a world that hates Jesus Christ! May the Lord awaken His people and grant us repentance and revival!
Great Sermon! Every husband needs to hear this message - not only for the would be suitors, but for themselves! Our nation is lacking in the kind of men that Mr. Baucham talks about in this sermon.
Powerful! This is a very timely message. I especially appreciate Pastor Pollard's observations about how we use our "leisure" time. If we were more diligent to fulfill the responsibilities God has given us as Christians, we would have less time to abuse our Christian liberty. It seems that we all need to be more "about our Father's business."
Great Sermon! After listening to this sermon, I am asking myself why I would want to have fellowship and communion with the idols of ungodly contemporary American culture, when I can have communion with my loving Heavenly Father, who has lfted me up out of my sin and degradation. What a wonderful thing Christ did for me on the cross! May I live to glorify Him and enjoy communion with Him alone.
Needed Instruction Praise the Lord for His mercy and grace in providing us with such instruction. I needed to be reminded to "abide in Christ" in order to avoid the idol of self. It is a hard thing in our world, but each Christian must learn to abide in Christ, the great Shepherd and to diligently avoid all idolatry. Amen.
