Great message! I've listened to this sermon and others in the "In the Heart" series more than once. They are very convicting...may we all have a Heart after Christ and for Christ. Keep leading! Love ya and CRBC.
Is there a difference between chemical and surgical abortion? We must not be hypocrites if we do something in the name of Christ. Have we yet learned the complexity of the human body to understand what God has created between man and woman? And how does the low dose pill alter that? I am not speaking about legislation right now, but the heart of the believer in marriage.
Roger, when we preach God's salvation for mankind (the Gospel), we are in fact preaching Election through Glorification! God has made a way for sinful man. This is the good news! Without a desire for God to save, there would be no good news, no gospel!
Must God's people be reminded that salvation is from God and God alone; it would be great if all Christians would view the Gospel according to Jesus Christ from start to finish. It is not derived from Calvin, but from the Triun God. Read Ephesians, Romans; election through Glorification cannot be denied. Martin Jones stated that the Doctrine of Elections was one of the most Glorious doctines in the bible. If we do not creed in our hearts God's Elective Redemptive Salvation, then we have not even begun to deal with our sin nature. Solo Deo Gloria!
