Great Sermon! Best I've heard on election doctrine I totally agree with the comment that was posted here 12 years ago by Genti from Albania. I had not heard of the now popular doctrine of election until the mid 1980s and it was very troubling to me. VERY troubling. Up until I heard this gentleman, Dr Waite's sermon I was confused. I had been led to the Lord, felt that I was saved, was doing Kingdom works, including evangelizing and teaching Sunday School, and having a glorious time in the Lord. All of a "sudden," it seemed, I began hearing various sermons on election and this Calvinism and TULIP doctrine. I began to wonder if I were one of the "elected," and started to begin, from time to time worrying about my salvation. I'd heard and read enough about hell to try to find the truth about election, listening to sermons and researching articles written on the subject, anything that would help me get this settled but instead, became more confused. But, when I found and listened to this particular sermon, I was blessed and relieved to finally hear the truth and I am so thankful. Dr Waite, you are a total blessing and I thank God for your very solid and sound message. Calvinism goes against all the Scriptures you so thoroughly included in this sermon. I thank God for you. Thank you, thank you, thank you--and dear Lord I am so thankfu
Bill Gothard: Authoritarian Legalist One of the primary hallmarks of Bill Gothard, as is that of Jack Hyles, is authoritarian legalism. The crops of authoritarian legalism were cultivated by both Jack Hyles and Bill Gothard. The end result is that both men were abusive. It is important to remember the example of Diotrephes in 3 John 9-11.
Bill Gothard Examined If we were to examine the teachings of Bill Gothard, we would recognize and realize that they are legalistic. While IBLP emphasizes morality and orderliness in a time of permissiveness, it does so to an excessive extent, thereby being very legalistic.
While we must practice discipline in the ministry, we must avoid going to the extent of behavior modification, which is just another name for legalism.
Great Sermon! I like the way you examine the scriptures with all of your congregation, mostly preachers on SermonAudio only talk and almost never converse back and forth. It was refreshing to see, I will be studying more of your videos as well. Regards, Rick Mello.
Great Sermon! I absolutely Love this subject!! Absolutely love th subject!
Before any man can walk in the good works which God hath before ordained, before he can be a workman for God, he must be the workmanship of God. He must first be worked upon by God before his work will be acceptable to God. Why is that? (Isaiah 64:6; Romans 3:10,12; Psalm 14:1-3) No man can work himself into Godâ€™s favor or by any labour assist in his own creation in Christ Jesus. God is the Creator. God, the Divine Workman, does the work of creating. The believing sinner is the recipient of Godâ€™s grace, and is made acceptable in Christ, the Beloved. It is God, the Father. (Colossians 1:12-14)
I believe in verse 10 when it says "believeth unto righteousness" that we must believe in Jesus who is the only one righteous.. We're all sinners and have come short of God's Glory. (Romans 3:23) when we do that it will be a result of us believing what it says in Romans 3:10,12; Isaiah 64:6, Psalm 14:1-3 & Romans 3:20-28.) That's how I take it. Then when that happens we believe in salvation meaning we can only be made righteous through Christ. Jesus is the Only way. John 14:6. Without Faith it's impossible to Please Him. - Hebr 11:6, the other Chapters & verses that help with this. John 15. Romans 4; Ephesians 2:10. Philippians 2:13, 3:9; 2 Corinthians 5:
Great Sermon! Excellent teaching. Mrs. W keeps it real. I don't like being talked down to by older women who act like they have been fully glorified in this lifetime. It's so refreshing to hear a godly older woman speak the truth whilst admitting that marriage is hard work.
Great Sermon! It's a sad case that there are so many teachers and preachers who "use" the Bible but do not believe the Bible. I can hardly stay away while listening to these guys who don't have a perfect Bible to preach from. They are dry as cracker juice. The Bible believer is correct because he has Scripture that is available today to back up what he believes.
How could you not believe that a translation could be perfect when so much evidence is provided in God's words.
In the Book of Genesis, chapters 42-45, we have the record of Joseph's reunion with his brethren. That Joseph spoke Egyptian instead of Hebrew is evident by Genesis 42:23 "And they knew not that Joseph understood them; for he spake unto them by an interpreter." Joseph spoke in Egyptian yet his words are translated and recorded in another language, which turns out to be the inspired words of God.
A translation does not have to be a "word for word" literal carry over into another language for it to be the inspired word of God. If we have the God given text and the God given meaning of that text communicated by way of another language, as I firmly believe we do in the King James Bible, it is still the inspired word of God.
This is not my opinion, it's taught in the word of God.
Great Sermon! Question: Was Ruckman a saved man? If the answer is yes then the debate is over and Peter Ruckman wins. Because what ever error we believe him to have been in, he has, and is now, in the presence of the truth, Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life. Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. We can bash Ruckman all we want but it is a waste of time, for time and life is short and today is the day of salvation! We need to be sharing and spreading the Gospel to the lost, Ruckman took it to the streets, God isn't done with street preaching friends, what are you doing for the LORD? Bashing his saints? Uh huh, knock it off and get busy Jesus is coming. So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Great Sermon! It's surely not just your lack of faith in what God has done, but you want to ne the athority. Dr Ruckman is not an ite, or a cult but a God calked man by the grace of God who through the 1611 has proven you and those like you are dead wrong. You sir are a dreamer, and I am not a ruckmanite. Before I ever heard of mr Ruckman I believed God
Great Sermon! Dr.Waite does a great job in exposing false leaders & pastors who are nothing but servants of Satan.
(Myself was a missionary to Norway from 2014-15,saw many false/UnBiblical pastors whom I exposed and warned people of these deceivers!).
Easter... Easter is born of paganism brother Waite. Easter is translated once in the KJV as such. Every other place it is translated as passover from the same root word. Easter has no place in the Christian Church. Please study the origins of Easter, it's as pagan as Christmas is.
