Great Sermon! Wow. I remember in Bible college when I decided to research the 9 Satanic Statements that Anton developed. I knew they were spiritually damning, but concluded that as long as they weren't hurting anybody, they weren't harmful to society (in a physical way, DEFINITELY spiritually). How wrong I was. Satanism, whether acknowledged openly or disguised in any other type of secularism or the other "isms" ultimately destroys the family and thus the rest of society. It replaces it with individualism, hedonism, and a false sense of humanism because they say that mankind's happiness is the ultimate goal, but they really just mean their own. Sodom was a great Satanist city.
Great Sermon! Amen, Amen. I am considered "one of those" I'm not weird I believe my bible read it and try to apply it to my life, share my faith in Jesus. Thank you brother! God bless you, your family and your ministry.
Amen. Amen Pastor. So blessed I found your message. It's what I've been telling people all along, we are in a civil war. Glory to God, He will never leave us or forsake us. God bless you and your ministry.
Great Sermon! I just want to concur with others in this section. You don't know who I am and I'm not saying this is strong evidence for discontinuing medication, but I've struggled for most of my life, years with depression and anxiety. This sermon marked a turning point in my life, nearing the end of many years of taking SSRIs and SNRIs to try to treat my depression and anxiety. For a long time, I held on to those medications, not just hoping that they were treating my anxiety or depression but clinging to them, unwilling to see how I would feel if I tried not taking them, because I believed that discontinuing them would lead to far worse effects. Medications and psychotherapy did not change my behavior or sanctify my thoughts. It took God's sanctifying grace to make Him the object of my desire and the desire to obey him that eventually motivated me to change. I couldn't find it in this world as a beaten down individual who had long been alienated by his peers throughout school, exacerbating my anxiety, depression, and further isolating myself from society. Eventually, I discontinued psychotropic medications and although I still struggle with depression and anxiety, I can't point to medications as having made me better other than notably turning me into an individual with flattened affect.
I'm just curious, when a lost hurting and hopeless 18 year old boy, most likely raised without a father (1 in 3 of them are now) puts a loaded weapon to his head to end the pain, what would his loved ones wish he had learned in the last 4 years of school? That he came from nothing and on the grand scale means nothing or that he is fearfully and wonderfully made by a powerful creator who has a loving purpose for him? Wonder which message might keep the bullet in the gun?
