'I kill and I make alive' The deliberate taking away of life (killing) under the kind of conditions and situations mentioned in this video clip (rare as they are) is still the sole right of GOD. Nowhere does GOD ever give this right to any man (under these situations. Capital punishment is different). We are not "gods" and we cannot play "God" even in exceptional cases. We cannot do evil that good may come. Let GOD be GOD. He knows best, judges most righteously and works sovereignly. His command to us in this regard is "thou shalt not kill." We dare not make of none effect the Word of the Almighty, All-Wise God. Obedience is always better than sacrifice in His sight. (oh, and by the way, I am not a Romanist- I am a Protestant Christian!)
Wise words! But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; (1 Corinthians 1:27).

Great Sermon! The following is by Charles Spurgeon
I very much demur to the designation, "To the Reverend C. H. Spurgeon," for no 'reverence' is due to me!
Assuredly, 'Reverend' and 'sinner' make a curious combination. And as I know I am the second, I repudiate the first.
To me, it is surprising that such a flattering title should have been invented, and more amazing still, that good men should be found who are angry if this title be not duly given to them.
"It is the Lord your God you must follow, and Him you must REVERE." Deut. 13:4
".... so that you may learn to REVERE the Lord your God always." Deut. 14:23
".... REVERE this glorious and awesome name: the Lord your God." Deut. 28:58
".... REVERE Him, all you descendants of Israel!" Psalm 22:23
"Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the people of the world REVERE Him." Psalm 33:8
".... holy and REVEREND is His name." Psalm 111:9
"I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will REVERE Him." Eccles. 3:14
"Who should not REVERE You, O King of the nations? This is Your due." Jeremiah 10:7
Insightful! There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee. (Deuteronomy 18:10-12).
Emergent Church-Emergent Liberalism The emergent church is theological liberalism taken to the extreme. Not all new evangelical (theologically liberal) organisations are associated with the emergent church, but they are a troubling step in that direction.
Great Sermon! Christianity Today Magazine has been recognized for theological liberalism since its first issue on October 15, 1956.
Billy Graham, speaking at the annual convention of the National Association of Evangelicals in 1971, said: â€śI believe that Christianity Today Magazine has played a major role in giving evangelicals that intellectual respectability and initiative that was so drastically needed 29 years ago.â€ť
Of course, that "respectability" acquired by evangelicals required them to compromise sound doctrine. In other words, evangelicals sold out to liberalism just to acquire so-called "respectability."
Compromising sound doctrine for the sake of gaining "respectability" is an act of treason against Christ. Christianity Today Magazine, like every other theologically liberal organization and spokesperson, will give an account to The Lord for the souls destroyed by such theological liberalism manifested in such "respectable", but liberal organizations and personalities.
Insightful! While yoga has become a popular global sensation around the world, the plain truth is that yoga is demonic due to being rooted in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is not only pro athletes justifying it, so is the evangelical church today. When will evangelicals learn that yoga cannot be made "Christian?"
Evangelicals practicing yoga is evidence that today's evangelicals are becoming more and more attracted to the spiritual works of darkness.
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. (Ephesians 5:11).
This sermon is exposing one of the many unfruitful works of spiritual darkness that is called yoga.
Something worth paying attention to. The World Council of Churches was founded in 1948 to promote ecumenism between the Roman Catholic Church and apostate denominations. Surprisingly, the World Council of Churches even recognizes the so-called "spirituality" of the non-Christian religions like the nature worshiping paganism. Despite the World Council of Churches recognition of non-Christian religions, the Bible in Isaiah 8:20 says that there is no light in the world's false religions. In other words, there is only darkness in the non-Christian religions. Of course, the World Council of Churches and the Vatican are planning on bringing the Antichrist and his one world religion. We are warned about the one world religion of the Antichrist in both Revelation 13 and Revelation 17. The good news is that Jesus Christ will dispose of the Antichrist and his associates as we read about in Revelation 19:11-21.
Great Sermon! Thank you for this wonderful message. Truly, reading the Word daily and digesting its truths will equip us believers for the never ending battle against the world, the flesh, and the devil.
Great Sermon! Why not accept what Jesus says, as to why he doesn't save everybody!
Mat 13:37Â He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;Â
Mat 13:38Â The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;Â
Mat 13:39Â The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.Â
Mat 13:40Â As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.Â
Joh 8:43Â Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.Â
Joh 8:44Â Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.
Great Sermon! With my respect to the good speaker, I believe that the scripture gave a simple and clear answer to this question:
It was his revelation to Israel as the Christ, The annointed one! ... as it is clearly indicated in John 1:31-33 ...
Joh 1:31-ESV "I myself did not know him, but for this purpose I came baptizing with water, that he might be revealed to Israel."
God bless you,
Sound exegetical teaching in my humble opinion. This gentleman in 7 minutes does what I heard countless other preachers in hours not do: reflects on the scriptures of Hebrews 6:4 and 10:26 through an exegetical study. The book's title is HEBREWS. It speaks about "the blood of bulls and goats" in verse 6 but somehow "sin willingly" in v26 has no bearing on that or the possibility of "sin" meaning "knowing what to do and not doing it". Instead let's scare the life out of the believer!
What in the world? So from chapter 6 to chapter 10 (and in between & before) is referencing the unpardonable sin? Thank God ministers like this man take the whole book and comment.
Try to return to God after terrible life decisions that have to do with repeated backsliding bc of addiction and lack of perseverance and you have to sift through eisegesis type of scripture grabbing. Man, scary stuff!
