Great Sermon! Pat is getting a little old, so he only seems to comment on part of the reality. Some people are to live in various places, and though there may be climate reasons for severe weather, we should just be silent and in awe, as Trevor says, and let God be God and nature be nature, and try to help people when they need it.
Interesting! I wouldve like to have heard him challenge those who claim to be christians,but yet admit to a lifestyle of homosexual practice....An base the challenge off of what scripture says in 1 Corinthians 6 says...about sins we ONCE practiced but nolonger by Gods grace!!......Those who love their sin hate anything that strikes their conscious,and they usually want that which is attacking removed from their environment.....which GOD AN HIS WORD...an that is the direction we are headed in in this country an around the world!!
Great Sermon! In the church I currently attend, when someone requests, we anoint them with oil and pray over them. Do you believe that scripture leaves room for this? We don't believe that our pastor or any elders have apostolic healing powers, and we don't believe in guaranteed healing, we do it in faith that God can heal if it is his will. Are we in error biblically for doing this?
Thank you for asking the difficult questions On this topic, Trevor Hammock has consistently proven to the be the most thorough and thought-provoking on this site. Every time he does a news in focus program on the subject, there is something worthwhile to learn from it.
Thank you for wrestling with an emotionally difficult issue and showing real compassion towards the LGBT community.
Many have a knee-jerk reaction to some of the questions Pastor Hammock asks. But our faith is only made stronger by facing these challenges, not weaker. We may think we already understand everything God has to say on this subject, but to think such a thing is pride & presumption. Only God has all the answers. Read again the verses pertaining to this topic. See what the Bible says... and what it doesn't say. And trust that God will reveal a greater work in you.
Wrong based on misassumptions I didnt hear a word about repentance of the sinner...!?Also, cheating spouse can contract deadly disease and thus should not be eligible for additional intimacy due to this possible threat. Thirdly, forgiveness doesn't mean that one should be as a doormat or set oneself up for revictimization-emotional or otherwise. Bible DOES mention divorce permissible for infidelity. Also, biblical penalty for adultery was the same as for homosexuality if I remember correctly. Repentance of sinner and proven change is the NT prescription for forgiveness by God. I also recall the verse 'Be not unequally yoked'. Too many unanswered questions and too many assumptions in this situation.
Great Topic Wow! He just made up a sorry excuse for why Men cheat on their wives. Yes it is alot of temptation out there, but a Man with morals would not even want to risk destroying the blessing of what God has given him.
wrong Mr. Robertson should not have basically said expect adultery. Job made a covenant with his eyes noy to look upon a woman. In our porno filled society, a man by God's grace can resist all sexual immorality. A wife should not expect or excuse it. He needs to repent first to God, then his wife. Only by God's grace can she forgive and he has to stop! If he does not, then he was not sincere.
C'Mon Pat!!!....seriously??? Although it maybe difficult but....Forgiveness starts at remembering what sins God has 1st forgiven YOU FOR!!....Pat was rite about the many different pornographic temptations in the world..but the rest of what he said was nonsense,a marriage counselor (hopefully christian) should test the couple 1st to see if they're truly in the faith,an whether or not if the husband truly "REPENTED"...an why she can't forgive maybe another problem in an of itself!!....The problem with such sin is that persons integrity is SHOT an they must fight to regain it back
Great Sermon! Concerning your comments at the beginning of this segment about how the church "overreacts" to homosexuality above other sins like lying, drunkeness and others, remember that God did as well when He Himself destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. Other cities were destroyed like Nineveh , and even His own Jerusalem in 70 AD , but none besides Sodom and Gomorrah were burned with fire and now lay at the bottom of the Salt Sea.
