We have something far worse than that. Killing babies with widespread endorsements from all walks of life.
These attempts to destroy the image of God in man are well orchestrated. Now the church should refrain itself from tax-exempt status so that there would be no government intrusion upon its rights of refusal.
If I recall, several years ago, the public schools denied religious institutions their rights to hold events in their facilities. THIS IS TYRANNY.
Good News This pastor gives the best illustration as to the Law's ineffectiveness in producing righteousness. The Law does not produce life.
We see all the more clearly why Jesus is precious to have delivered us from this present evil world. And, there's more to come.
Thank you pastor Russ.
Great Sermon! It seems that most pastors fail in equipping the saints with the one thing that matters. That is the Gospel.
Error also creeps in because many in the pews are not saved and possiblyfollowing a man in the pulpit, or looking for friendships among ill informed churchgoers.
I have found that many are satisfied in being saved only.
This message should convert any listener that tolerates false teaching and simply brushes off that small ember of false doctrine without exerting any effort of putting it
out altogether. Always with meekness and love.
This is certainly a stirring sermon.
I thank God for leading me to pastor Russ' sermons.
Thus Sayeth Scripture More and more I am seeing how we demand others to perform in their flesh. We seem to want to see or know how they are living, according to the law, instead of seeing them through the eyes of grace.
Many of the threads indicate that we are not committing the brethren to the word of God's grace.
Great Sermon! Faye/Annapolis, MD
You are not allowed to us all caps. At least this is the message I get when I try to use caps.
â THE COURAGE TO CONFRONT! â
God emboldens some to speak truth to power. For David, it was Nathan. Nobody is above God's Law, not even "the apple of God's eye" (Psalm 17:8). This sermon is filled with strong meat, requiring much chewing and digesting -- a meal not for the slothful! Thank you, Pastor Simmons, for your labor in the preparing and presenting of it. A job well done
NeedHim wrote: Those who are making claims about babies dying & going to Hell, that Calvinist are cold hearted basically & the God they are talking about isnât the God of the Bible or wanting fairness. Thank goodness we donât get perfect fairness our way, in what we all are worthy of & deserving of. His wrath to be poured out on others, like He did through the flood. & anyone who says they arenât worthy of His judgement is full of pride! Spurgeon teaching on infants dying & election & salvation, nât the emotional response that J4J is trying to pin the Reformed Brethren to. Spurgeon; If infants are to be saved, itâs nât because of any natural innocence. They must enter Heaven by the very same way that we do; they must be received in the name of Christ, 'For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid.' There is no different foundation for the infant than that which is laid for the adult.â

It doesn't frighten. However, your words can engender this in the minds of weak believers. Shame on using scare tactics.
If you would stop being "white" and assimilate, you'd see clearly what is truly dividing us on all fronts.
Wake up and share good news! You were called to reconcile the lost to God. Bury yourself among Christian brethren.
Is he supposed to be the only way for "many Americans?" Or is he the only way for believers? Most people in many countries don't believe he is the only way. So are all Americans supposed to believe the Gospel?
Now if believers began to drift there would be questions.
Unprofitable Servant wrote: Just trying to understand. The Bible teaches the sad reality that wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat. It is a reality that cannot be escaped. Are you saying closing down these murder clinics hinders people from hearing the gospel? Are you saying it is not a good idea to stop the killing of babies because somehow it doesn't promote the gospel? Has God not said thou shalt not kill and would that not be a good thing to stop the killing? How does getting people to stop violating the commandment of God amount ot just expressing our opinions? Thanks for your response.
It is the heart that has to be turned toward God.
The truth is that you can have 15 babies and perish.
There is no law that prevents man from violating the Commandment of God. The Law makes no man righteous.
The man who aborted the lives of 10 people recently was not a PP staffer.
The commandments of God are to bring us to the merciful Lawgiver/Jesus Christ and find grace.
What does it profit a man if he doesn't commit murder and loses his soul?
