Superb, As Ususal from Dr. Carson This sermon from Don Carson (who else?) is the best exposition of the rich man and Lazarus I have ever heard. Bright new insights as to textual interpretation, as well. Please give it a listen, take notes, and share. Thank you, Lord, for your work through our beloved Don Carson.
Roots and then roots... Thank you, Donald, for your style and presence in Christ to deliver pure gospel to my heart. Yes, you may decline my appreciation, citing Jesus as your/our only source of help and inspiration, but when any person reaches my heart, even as you do, then the place of recognition is as a gathering at the feet of Jesus, feeding on the Lamb, and love is begotten.
I was part of a worldwide fundamentalist group called the 2x2s for many years, who have succumbed to self-justification even when immersed in sin from top to bottom, who refuse to come clean about what is both going on and condoning what should never be going on in a group proclaiming itself, arrogantly, as The Truth that only can save. Perhaps you knew or know of them, for Quebec had their share also....
As yourself, I am aging now, but it's in my heart to preach the gospel. Wide detours and wrong decisions never brought that to fruition.
Although well-educated and now retired, I am considering returning to school to get a degree that qualifies me as a preacher in the formal sense. Although multi-degreed and a former helping professional, I have always had a passion for speaking of the things of Jesus.
Any suggestions along this line would very much be appreciated.
Bruce, a brother in spirit.
A Wonderful Sermon! A 5***** listening experience. What a delightfully fresh expounding of this well-known and often preached portion of God's Word. I've often heard your brother preachers fondly refer to you, but think this is the first sermon of yours I've heard. God has graced you with a unique way of expression, and then He gave you to us, His church, to be therein blessed. Thank you for your faithfully hearing Him.
Great Sermon! I agree that God's love in unconditional but there are some places in the bible that God seems to "love" some over others
Isa. 66:2 I know that "love" is not spoken there but the fact that He "looks" on the one who trembles at His word does that mean that He "regards with pleasure" them over those who do not? There are other places in the Psalms but I can't find them in my memory right now.
God bless, Bill.
Great Sermon! Rick preached a strong and to the point sermon. He points quickly to our need to be reconciled with God and each other and why. This sermon is a must for all races and nationalities and all who are of Christ and to those who want to know Christ. Thank-You Rick for your service to God and to man thru Christ.
Great Sermon! Pastor Bixby has hit the nail right on the head in this message. The raging debate between various elements within conservative Christianity who are judging each other when it comes to worship styles need to listen to this message. Thank you Bob!
Great Sermon!(32nd on my odyssey ) thankyou dear brother Bixby for this interesting,challenging and encouraging sermon. I am on an odyssey of going through each book of the Bible listening to a sermon from a speaker whom i have not heard before. This venture is a real blessing. May the Lord be pleased to bless your ministry to the glory of His name.
