The Olympics: Enjoying The Pleasures of Sin The Olympics, and its many variants, like the World Games, Pan American Games, European Games, African Games, Asian Games, and Pacific Games, are the temporal pleasures of sin lasting for a season. It is wise to remember Hebrews 11:24-26 in a day where the Olympics is widely lauded, even by evangelical churches. The temporal pleasures of sin are not just manifested in the Olympics, but in all pro sports.
Great Sermon! This podcast is invaluable. It is such a privilege to be able to have an almost 30-minute conversation with you every morning about what is happening in the world.
Your efforts will be rewarded.
Pro Sports: Gaining The Whole World This sermon really nails not just the idolatry of pro sports, but the worldiness of it. It is worth remembering Matthew 16:24-28 and Mark 8:34-38 in regards to pro sports. What shall it profit anyone if they gain the whole world and lose their own souls? Pro sports really is about gaining the whole world. These prestigious, but spoiled, pro athletes think that they will gain the whole, but in reality, most of them will lose their own souls in Hell, and eventually, the Lake of Fire. It is also worth noting 1 John 2:15-17 as well. The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, which are not of The Father, but are of the world. The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life are all manifested in pro sports, meaning that pro sports is not of The Father, but is of the world.
The Olympics: Gaining The Whole World It is worth remembering Matthew 16:24-28 and Mark 8:34-38 with regards to the Olympics. What shall it profit anyone if they gain the whole world and lose their own souls? This sermon shows why participating in the Olympics is about gaining the whole world. These prestigious, but spoiled, Olympic athletes from the many nations of the world think that they are gaining the whole world, but in reality, many of them will lose their own souls in Hell, and eventually the Lake of Fire.
Short But A Good ermon! Thank you Daniel for getting to the point about seeking the face of God. Desiring him above all else is critical in the lives of Christians. Prayer according to the knowledge of God and his will is necessary.
Great Sermon! Timely message. Pride takes root in the heart and, if left unchecked, takes up residence there. Self-righteousness often results from pride and will eventually derail all who are deluded by it.
Only God can truly humble a sinner, head knowledge never equals salvation. Praise Him if He lowers you in the dust, fear Him if He doesn't.
Great Sermon! let me add this, those who hold to and defend this Romanist heresy of free will need to listen to this message. The truths presented are not from Calvin, they are from God through a man brought out of the heresy of a works-based salvation. May God give them ears to hear.
Great Sermon! Great truths from this man, who was once trapped in a dead religion based on works and 'free will', and now seeks to expose that heresy by giving God's word.
Arminianism leads back to Rome, which is why the Jesuits implanted this heresy in the first place. Many today are still deluded by this tragic error of 'free will' and will not break free from it unless God sets them free. Praise Him for His grace, for it is grace that saves, not man and his 'decision'.
Great Sermon! Arminianism is a heresy birthed from the Jesuits and Jacob Arminius to lead astray and destroy. John Wesley was a heretic, a proponent of 'free will' and baptismal regeneration, all of which are false teachings and damning to the soul.
We need men like Toplady today to cry out against the heresy of Arminianism and all who teach it.
Great Sermon! This great truth is shrugged off by so many 'Christians'. Arminianism is from the devil, free will is a farce. No one acts with God in the saving of their soul - no one. God does not leave His elect in error, He will show us the error and heresy of the devilish free will doctrine, brought into Protestantism by the Jesuits.
Praise the Lord for revealing His truth to His elect.
Great Sermon! You are wrong on many counts but especially when you say that amilenianist are negating all the Kingdom promises, we see them differently but in no way do we negate them we believe that they will indeed be fulfilled and more, the premillennialist loves to think in terms of an earthly reign but Christ only ever points to a heavenly spiritual reign.
Great Sermon! This is great, I love the last statement: you were foreordained to say this, so calvinists shouldn't get upset.
This Calvinist theory of being predestined and foreordained sounds dangerously similar to Muslim Fatalism. Thank you for your clarification of Ephesians 1:4-5. It had been bothering me
