Needed Sermon against growing error. Lays bare the irrational Theory that the Bible on creation can be made compatible with modern-day evolutionary science. The attempt began with BB Warfield at Princeton, then the Gap Theory of fundamentalists and today's Tim Keller (of The Gospel Coalition) while overlooking the perfect clarity of scripture. Liberalism has infiltrated with a seed of error that has continued to grow among conservatives. The infallibility of scripture is at stake. And the premise of Uniformitarianism in science (the rejection of the global Deluge of Noah) is the basis of erroroneus & misleading radio-carbon dating.
The Roman Catholic Church using the Bible primarily in Latin had mistranslated the word for the people and misconstrued the word as "penance" instead of "repentance". When Luther distinguished between "doing penance" (ritualistic works for the Forgiveness of sins), and "repent",true repentance appeared and then the Reformation broke out and exposed the corruptions of the Roman Church, which included indulgences on the same premise.
A similar but different mistranslation has appeared on the Protestant side since the days of Spurgeon which began confusing the word "faith" with "trust", as if they are the same, the latter now supplanting the former.
We are commanded to examine everything, and so we should compare what modern churches say vs the apostles in the New Testament.
As if Roman Catholic and pagan holidays aren't bad enough. Too many conservative Christians are listening to people like the Orthodox Jew, political columnist Ben Shapiro who has just positions on some morals but who has publicly in his podcast denied the New Testament that Jesus is the son of God, saying it was invented by Paul who came later. The book of Galatians abolishes all Judaism (the traditions of the Elders are unscriptural) and Old Testament rituals, circumcision, ceremonies, Foods, Sabbath and customs.
Important timely sermon! As the pastor summarizes what happened in Charlottesville is falsehood for political purposes. Today sadly even the Southern Baptist convention (and AL Mohler) has disowned their forefathers in order to become politically-correct instead of biblically true on this subject. Most of modern Christianity has become totally PC and humanist, democracy-oriented instead of adhering to the Purity and truth of God's word on this subject. The fear of man brings a snare.
The tithe was for Israel only. There is no command or example in the New Testament for continuing the tithe or using that as a basis for giving to the needs of the local church. The idea of tithing as a church expectation and requirement even started in the 19th century with the missionary movement which required tithes to support missionaries. Spurgeons view was the tithing was not a new testament teaching or requirement. So there you have it, there is no righteousness in tithing or expectation for that to be a commandment today. How many pastors love it and teach it, guess why?
LISTEN! Very practical. The speaker touches on a subject that I have never heard spoken on before but became evidently clear that was something that's missing especially among churches that are preaching free grace in their emphasis. He touches on a neglected subject, i.e. responsibility and effort in sanctification, and even a creeping error that is worth uncovering. Has the grace of God been turned today into licentiousness? What good men are worth following as examples today? What type of men should Christians esteem? Certainly not who the world esteems. The speaker contrasts today with good men of former years.
The Smithsonian video attributes the building of it to Nebuchadnezzar II. But his timeline certainly does not match. Nor does it match the 3500 years ago which they speak of. So there is an error here somewhere
Nebuchadnezzar II was king of Babylon c. 605 BCE â c. 562 BCE, the longest reign of any king of the Neo-Babylonian empire. Wikipedia Died: 562 BC, Babylon, Iraq
Sober talk to children Wonder why society is like it is today, full of wickedness and irreverence and disrespect of authority? Because children have not been taught like this, nor do adults act any better! Parents should be rebuked if they have not taught this lesson or let their children run their own way, for it is to their danger if they're not turned.
Yet their birth certificate and medical reports required say male or female. This spreads their gender dysphoria by repeating it publicly and causing confusion and delusion to spread like a contagion by what is called associative disorder. Not healthy for psychological stability of students!
Indeed not a good sign and Trump already knew this when choosing him. That is how we got John Roberts from Bush, too. Ivanka has Trump's ear and supports LGBT rights. Don't get too hopeful about Trump since he has no principles he holds to.
Now Trump has an opportunity to send a different human rights message with sanctions and by adding a Pakistani border ban temporarily for non U.S. citizens. The ruling is too sweeping to be credible on 115 suspects who were taken to court for some reason.
Indicting ABC for this lack of previous coverage forced them to give major attention to it on GMA the morning of the rally. They were shamed of their obvious bias and being called out finally by a President.
Beware of Black Liberation Theology 2.0 which has been brewing up again under Obama and this last year with BLM. (It began with abolitionist and terrorist John Browns false theology and violent insurrection and was revived under MLK and Malcom X. It is about violent social revolution and various forms of Anarchy to overthrow "privileged whites" government snd rule. BLM is present manifestation with cop killings.
Plain teaching on homosexuality and modern society Needs to be heard. Much application when closing. Refutes typical modern errors. Many blame God, saying he made them that way. They ignore the doctrine of fall, Original sin, men born depraved. Much more.
No it continues the 20th century and 21st century tradition of using Baptist pastors as props for political convenience by Republican candidates to capture the Evangelical support that they desperately need. Trump is a con artist.
