Great Sermon! I just lost my son, Tont. . Tony was a believer and I am also. I listen to dozens of messages for comfort and understanding and this was one of the best . I thank the Holy Spirit for bringing before me these words of comfort right when my thoughts are at their darkest and most vulnerable . And I personally thank you Pastor Donnelly for I have also listened to your messages for many years. Gid bless you.
Agape ! Your sermons are a Blessing !
the Sacrament of circumcision was a blood ordinance continued in the New Covenant as one of "The Heart" rather than the flesh (Rom2:28-29, Col2:14). in my "home church" we believe (based on Scripture) that the natural process of birth (John3:5) is both of water and of the Spirit. we do "dedicate" infants and pray for their future voluntary acceptance of The Gospel.... offer baptism to all without regard to chronological age, who desire to be baptised (by the Father, Son and Holy Spirit). as to infants, intellectually deficients, the preborn and others incapable of forming intent, perhaps they are some of us whose salvation was pre-ordained from the ketebo whom God has chosen to spare this tribulation. (??) (1Cor13:12).
i thank our Father in Yashua's Precious Name for letting me share in the richness of your insights of His Word.
Objections dealt with in this sermon Very helpful sermon. It covers "3 of the most common objections to the doctrine of infant baptism". The objections covered in this sermon are:
1 - There is no express command in the New Testament to baptise infants.
2 - When a baby is baptised, we have no way of knowing if that child will ever believe.
3 - What is the point of baptising a little baby who cannot understand what is happening?
Great Sermon! The book of Romans has always been at the forefront of my learning and understanding of what it means to be a Christian and to belong to Christ . I have Pastor Donnelly to thank for this because it has been through his sermons that I have come to read and appreciate the gospel as presented in this great book of Romans. He is right - I think Romans is the place to start for new Christians and the place to go back to continuously as we grow in the Christian life. God bless you Pastor Donnelly.
Great Sermon! I first heard this sermon as part of a taped message by Pastor Donnelly at a men's conference at Trinity Reformed Baptist Ch. in Montville NJ. It is without a doubt my favorite taped message about my favorite book in the Bible - Romans. But more than that is the effect it has had in my life as a Christian towards assurance that God doesn't leave my salvation up to me. I'd never make it.
Great Sermon! Amen! Thank you for these wonderful messages from Romans! Sad to say, for many years I was ignorant of this great truth! (Romans 10:3)...Thank God, Salvation is of the Lord! Jonah 2:9..May God bless your church and ministry!
Great Sermon! I have enjoyed and benefitted greatly from the messages of Pastor Donnelly throughout my years as a Christian. His sermons have been salt and light for me and I thank our gracious God for His providence in how He always puts His people where they are needed most by others. May God fulfill your desire for many more years at your favorite place.
