Great Sermon! Thanks Pastor Allison for being so faithful to the Lord for all these years. I so wish I could have been saved at an early age instead of age 49. During my entire life not one person ever presented the Gospel message to me. My grandma and grandpa were Christians but never told me about Jesus or how to be born again. As a result, I made some bad choices. I thank God for his love, mercy and grace. My wife and love the Lord and want to serve him! I finally realized my gift which is soul winning. I thank God that he is using me to spread the Gospel. It is amazing to be born again and just as amazing when you can lead someone to Christ! Knowing that person got saved and will not perish for eternity keeps me going strong to win souls for the Kingdom of God! I'm just the messenger and God gets all the praise and glory!
Great Sermon! I loved this sermon! All Christians need to have a burden for lost souls. If every member of Madison Baptist Church led one person to Christ, hundreds of lost souls would be saved and not perish in Hell for eternity. Thanks Pastor Allison for a powerful sermon!
Great Sermon! His reasoning used in characterizing general libertarianism is that if one is against state prosecution of adulterY (threatening with violence since every law carries the threat of violence) then I myself must be pro adultery and am likely commuting or at least crave commiting adultery myself.
I think he's confusing libertine thought (act on all desires) with libertarianism (anti-aggresion, with the Non-Aggression Principle (NAP) being key, very compatible with the character of Christ teachings leading to not initiating violence/theft/etc...).
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
How hypocritical this is because if my memory serves me correctly wasn't that Georgia peanut farmer who won the 76 election was he not a Southern Baptist Democrat from Plains, GA. Just more lftist fruitcake rhetoric
More info on Freud Hey guys, been a while since I listened to this sermon, so forgive me if this was mentioned, but I have just found research that Freud and Jung were heavily influenced by the Kabbalah! More reason why these guys were devil possessed.....
Resurrection of Jesus is Proof for all men to beli The gospel is so simple when we go back and look in the book of Acts.
The Repentance was preached.
The wicked sin one must repent of to be saved is the sin of unbelief. John16:7-9
People have lost site of the proof Jesus resurrection as to who he is.
Easter should be every day.
The sign to Believe is the resurrection!
This is the Jonah sign for us. Matthew 12:38-41 and also look at John 2:22
Romans 10:9 Jesus is the Lord proven by his resurrection. Romans 14:7-9
All must repent Acts 17:30-31
I look forward to your responces
Mike, you seem to have missed the whole point on why I commented in the first place. I read this news about Dr. Ryken for the first time on 2/22. I saw that the first 4 "comments: had nothing at all to do with the subject matter at hand. After reading the 4 "comments", I wrote what I did. I found it quite discouraging that I could not join in because of the first 4 comments which had noithing to do with the matter at hand. This, as I said earlier, happens quite often.
Please check for yourself how many comments dealt directly with the subject matter. The answer is 0 .
Thanks for adding your opinion, Rick. Please understand me, I realize that these forums are different than many other forums in that they pertain to God, the Bible, etc. As I said earlier, there may very well be others who would like to respond to the "subject matter at hand", rather than read about the same few people arguing, etc. about something that has nothing at all to do with the subject at hand.
I, myself wanted to share with others, the fact that Dr. Ryken, a great man of God, whom I really enjoy hearing, is leaving Tenth Pres., etc.
I hope that everyone understands why I said what I did.
Thanks again, Rick, for giving me another opportunity to convey exactly why I wrote the 1st. article.
May God bless ALL of us as we use this forum from time to time!
It is very discouraging that the same couple of people monopolize these forums. They seem to be the same couple of people who monopolize many other forums as well. Just look at their "forum history". Some of what they say, I agree with, but that's besides the point. My self, as well as others are in all liklihood hindred from posting here. It could be a great forum!
I have no idea at all why Sermon Audio (which I love), allows some of the comments posted here. Some of these comments have nothing to do at all with the subject matter at hand. This happens quite abit on other "forum subjects" as well here in S.A. I hope that S.A. corrects this problem so that each response is edifying and not argumentative and at times, I believe, even hateful!
I have been struggling being bisexual for many years. I pray to God for help in this matter and still struggle with this. Is there any Christian guy out there who was gay or bi and was delivered from this sin? I know that the gay/bi lifestyle is a great sin clearly taught in the Bible. I don't know from Adam how any church could condone this sin. If there is someone I can share with, I will gladly give you my email address and perhaps you can share. I feel like a hypocrite, struggling with this sin of being bisexual and at the same time agreeing that this lifestyle is sinful. I thought I was saved but now feel I am not. I hope to hear from someone. Thanks!
I believe in the doctrine of election because the Bible very clearly teaches it. Even a child who can read will read that this doctrine is clearly in Scripture. How does one explain to a nonbeliever, nonchurchgoer, just what election is all about? Any feedback?
You are right on. Why aren't there thousands of "AMENS" to this website???Where were the thousands of churches having "National Prayer Day" services? Something tragic has happened in the "Sermon Audio Churches". There should be millions of responses to this 'most important subject'!!
Yes, Sermon Audio has been a blessing, I believe to many as it has been to myself. As I was perusing some of the speakers and messages here, I came across a woman preacher here on Sermon Audio. I feel just awful that women preachers are permitted to post their messages on S.A. I believe the Bible is very, very clear about women not to have authority, etc. over men. They must remain silent in the local church. I just feel awful.
I find it most discouraging and unedifying that the same people go on and on night after night bashing one another and one another's viewpoints here in these rooms. I struggle daily with trying to walk the Christian life and would so much enjoy coming into these rooms and perhaps get some encouragement, etc. in how I can walk the Christian life easier. I'm surprised that "sermon audio" allows the same people, night after night, to come in these rooms and monopolize the conversations, etc. It's sad to see Christians "at each other" rather than helping each other.
Can somebody please tell me why the same few people monopolize this site night after night after night? Isn't there anyone in control of this "room"? This room could be a wonderful blessing if it was used properly. There is such backbiting,etc. going on here. What a sad witness for an "outsider/unbeliever" to come in here and observe what's going on. I'm sorry folks, but I'm sure you will agree with me, especially if we want something edifying.
