Great Sermon! THIS IS THE BEST SERMON I HAVE EVER HEARD ON THE SUBJECT. I AM OVERWHELMED BY WHAT CHRIST DID FOR ME! I AM OVERWHELMED BY THE GREAT LOVE OF THE FATHER & THE SON TO REDEEM HIS ELECT! PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!
Divorce Scandal: Why Would They Want Christ? Thank you Brother Stewart! Marriage is the universal symbol of Christâ€™s unfailing devotion to His bride, the Church. However, since studies indicate a 50% divorce rate, even in the Church, isnâ€™t this the collective message to the unbelieving world?:
(A.) Our marriages are no better than yours.
(B.) Our families are destroyed like yours.
(C.) Our Christ has failed us.
(D.) If the "exception clause" (e.g., Matthew 19:9) has been correctly translated, why would the hurting world even want Christ and His Church?
Hasnâ€™t divorce in the church become a scandal even to evangelism and missions?
Blessings In Christ.
Great Sermon! All I can say is I thank the Lord for this message. I am engaged to be married and I have known in my spirit that I was doing something wrong in my interaction with my fiance and I had been praying about God revealing to me what I needed to do differently. This message is an answer to that prayer. I feel liberated by the realization that I am not responsible for my fiance's/husbands sin and that God will not use my words to change my fiance, but He will use my Godly submission to my him. Amen and praise the Lord God!
Great Sermon! Thank you for this sermon. I married a Christian man, a BJ graduate, who behaved just like you described. I left everything familiar and moved across America to marry him. He treated me harshly and neglected me from the first day of the marriage. I got called names from him that I never heard of in the middle of the night. He smashed my valuables and frequently terrified me. I lasted six months and fled home all the way from Indiana to the Westcoast with nothing. It is very difficult for a wife to keep going when her husband is enraged, ignores her and refuses to sleep with her. My husband never talked me, six months of dreadful silence. He ran out of bed at 4am in the morning and came back at 2 am. One year later he coldly served me with divorce papers. When I cried, was distressed and terrified, he said that he never saw a woman react this crazy before. What was I supposed to do? I left everything I had in Canada to marry this "Christian" man. He actually directed me to this website and was proud to have gotten his education at BJ. Your sermon is honest and shows what a true Christian is.
Great Sermon! That is indeed inspiring and very timely. In this our day and age such a message is invaluable. God increase you in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be all the glory
Beautiful Sermon! This was a very powerful message. We have been going through a lot lately and today, our anniversary, I came across this sermon. It is a rhema word that came at the perfect timing. May God continue to use you in a mighty way! Amen
Great Sermon! Awesome sermon and one that we all need to hear. My husband just came in from a Sunday School cookout and I asked him to sit down and listen again with me. Great sermon and I look forward to enjoy others by you. Thank you for your great words of inspiration.
Needs to be said more often.. I agree with the previous comments, plus would add that this message should be preached in some essence at least before Communion in any church. In our Methodist service, we have a short time at the start to greet everyone with "the Peace of Christ" - after listening to this, I think I'm going to suggest the time be put aside instead for reflection and repentance! Blessings, Romayne
What a Blessing! Thank you Brother Stewart! I have to think it would have been a blessing to have been in the service when you preached this message! And to then have shared in the Lord's supper together with the believers there.
Most Powerful Sermon! Thank you dear brother for this timely message. It ought to convict our hearts as to the gravity and seriousness of the Lord's Table and in partaking of it with unrepented sin in our lives.
Interesting Sermon... This message is clearly for believers in Christ, not for pagans and not for members of religious cults. The sermon is based on Jesus' on words: "where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" (Matt. 6:21) To the modern ear, this sermon may initially sound as if this is an attempt to use the gospel for financial gain (i.e. you can 'purchase' favor with God by giving money to the church, in this case as if spiritual growth could be purchased with a check to the church or, at the very least, a shortcut to the hard work of time in the Word, Scripture reading and the sacraments. Afterall, is through Word and sacrament that God actually gives that which he promises in his gospel -- forgiveness of sins, freedom from the tyranny of sin and eternal life.)
It's a topic worthy of in-depth study. A quote from another site: Matt.6:12 "seems to indicate that the way a believer spends money may be the clearest indication--perhaps like a thermometer--of the heart's spiritual condition." It is always worthwhile endeavor to examine ourselves individually to find out where we stand on the matter on this matter. That might mean putting our money where our lips say our heart is.
Great Sermon! Could someone please tell me how or if the option of the sermon can be in text form. I'm a wedding coordinator and would love to add this sermon in to my files for couples.
Please email me @ email@example.com
thanks in advance
Great Sermon! Pastor AT. I believe the message on sept 4th was certainly on target. I also believe that God is giving the sinners another chance to repent of their sins and turn from their wicked ways. It should be a wake up call for those that were going to be in N.O. for the wild evil partys that were going to take place.
Thanks for your willingness to speak the whole truth even though it hurts.
Thank You! Thank you for this message as I listened to it on the day of my marriage and it lifted my spirit up as I was getting a little nervous. God Bless you Pastor Stewart.

Great Sermon! If you want to know the truth about marriage please listen to Pastor AT Stewart marriage series. He has 4 sermons that are a blessing: 3 Essentials for Marriage, Your Wife's Greatest need(Husbands need to know this, Ha!),God and your marriage, and Submission: God's Word? I can't begin to tell you how these sermons blessed me. Everyone should listen to them. Women listen to the submission sermon it will bless you and bite you a ta' bit but its worth it.
