A mustang of a sermon- travelling fast, far with a lot of power Wow!! This 2 part sermon is the Holy Spirit firing on all cylinders in a human vessel. Incredible the amount of ground covered. Rarely can one find a more thoroughly Reformed sermon on every line. This preacher packed a handful of great summary statements of the trajectory of God‚Äôs redemptive work throughout scripture. If you want to worship God purely you must listen to this 2 part series.
It is unfortunate that in this day every person's witness must be thoroughly examined but it is necessary. Many people give glory to God, but which god and which jesus are they giving glory to? Is it to the point where one must stand and say "I give glory to the God who, through Jesus Christ alone, created the world in 6 days and redeemed sinners by his death & his blood and calls us to be justified in him and through no other means, forsaking all others but Christ alone"? I'm afraid it probably is. Even in the comments here we show our misconceptions because many people may call themselves Christians but they are unaware that the only Christian it is possible to be is a born-again-Christian. There is no other kind!
I think Ken Ham has a right to speak on these things on his blog, doesn't he!? It's the media that spreads everything around. He's probably quite correct actually, and telling the truth isn't exactly a bad thing after all.
Yeah, why not let our kids suffer with whatever our bad choices bring them. Feed them cheap rubbish every meal and just let GOD look after them, eh!?
To the contrary, we are given children with a responsibility to raise them wisely - with their spiritual AND physical health in mind. I wouldn't feed my child poison and just expect GOD to keep them safe regardless!
The article doesn't seem to provide any actual beliefs of these guys. But ... of course GOD will remain faithful to His promises concerning Israel! The OT is full of His promises, and if He gives up on those where will He end??
James Thomas: It's my opinion (not mine only) that the Torah/law was known by the patriarchs. Consider Abraham in Gen 26:5 "Abraham obeyed my voice and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes and my laws" and compare this to 1 Kings 2:3.
Noah seemed to know the difference between clean/unclean beasts. Abraham may have even met the 3 strangers during the Feast of Unleavened Bread!? It was an "appointed time" (Gen 18:14), what the LORD's feasts are called later, and probably alluded to in creation ("seasons" in Gen 1:14).
