Wonderful Sermon! This sermon needs to be heard by all evangelicals. I, too, am glad to see Billy Graham called out. Especially with his recent death, he is being practically immortalized. We must remain constantly on guard against non Biblical teachings. One of the hallmarks of the last days is deception, and unfortunately, if we are unaware of what the Bible says, or we feel it is o.k. To change the biblical message to get more parishioners, we are well on our way to being deceived. Our only safeguard is sola scriptura, and this cannot be set aside for any reason. We have always been a peculiar people, and this will not change. Jesus did not change his message to accommodate the listeners, and if He did not, I don't see how anyone can make a valid argument for it. Times may have changed, but there is NO evidence to indicate, as many evangelicals have implied, that God understands this and that He finds our changing of biblical truths permissible. People today, especially biblically illiterate people, need to understand how far we have strayed from early Christianity
Problems with your view If you read John Gill, you will get a more accurate description of the historic millennium view. Once the Lord has taken us up into the cloud with Him (in the first resurrection and the postmill rapture), He will burn all wickedness from the face of the earth. Then we will descend with Him to a renovated earth where there will be no unbelievers, no sin, nothing that defiles. Similar to Noah's ark while he awaited the destruction/renovation of the earth by water. There will be a sabbath rest in which the earth and mankind display God's original design in the garden of eden. At the end, God will throw satan into the lake of fire after his brief but vain attempt to ruin the earth again fails. The unbelieving dead will be raised (second resurrection) and also cast into the lake of fire...(the second death). The first resurrection is the resurrection of the just. We will then behold a new heaven and earth and live with our Lord for all eternity.
Great Sermon! I always enjoy Dr. Nick Needham's biographies and lectures on Christian history but he may need to rethink his political views on Muslim immigration. I prayerfully and respectfully ask people to watch the following video on SermonAudio.
Great Sermon! thank you so much for this very important series. Our churches are overrun by Piper and Keller followers. It left a sickness in my stomach when I listened but I am more determined to pray for the church that's left.
Another Great Sermon! Very good follow-up to part one. While I would not agree with every point made, I wholeheartedly agree with the overall message. In emphasizing the fact that Christians are under a New Covenant, the New Calvinists go far beyond what is allowed in Christian liberty. And as Chris Hand points out, separation from error is a forgotten doctrine. While I was aware of Piper's association with the blasphemous Mark Driscoll, I did not know that the likes of Todd Bentley and the NAR were also welcome. God help many to receive discernment and leave this dangerous movement. Thanks again for another important sermon on this topic!
Great Sermon! AMEN & AMEN!!! As others have commented previously, this message is needed as much today as when it was first preached. The New Calvinists lack the fear of God found in the believers of old. Edwards, Spurgeon and Bunyan would be the first to speak out against this perversion of the Doctrines of Grace. Thank you, Chris Hand!
Great Sermon! Thank you DrNeedham!This is SO interesting and informative and so full of Christ. As a converted Catholic I know that Mary persecuted the true church but I didn't really know why Protestant executed Catholics until now! Once again, thank you.
Great Sermon! What a great observation of repentance quoting Robert Leighton (1611-1684). Who indeed is able to assume that on any day they will be able to repent?
Mr Needham is new to me but I shall look out for him henceforth.
