Great Sermon! I think your perspective is good. I think we need to define how we got to this point. Clearly we have lost freedoms, and I think itâ€™s caused by irresponsible living and our own hypocrisy as Christians. Gods discipline hurts.
I am very upset about the division in my church because most of it stems from blatent ridicule and criticism of the Democratic Party. Why would any of them listen to us about anything in our proclaimed self righteousness. These is no gentleness and respect.
Iâ€™m sure you agree that the left may not know Jesus. Most of them believe that in order to be a Christian, they need to become Republican.
Christ, and Christ alone is what saves us! Not our works or politics. While we need to preserve the society else have, we know it does not end well in this world.
Again, I do like your perspective on the whole of the situation.
Great Sermon! This is the year 2020 and Iâ€™ve become 12 weeks of double hip replacement and Godâ€™s providence I have missed stepped and broken my forearm! and worrying and wondering about Godâ€™s providence- I now see the big picture-Pastor Voddie Baucham thank you
Great Sermon! Brother God has used you in my life today! My husband knows you from our time in the ministery and suggested that I listen and he was right. I have been struggling with finding joy in the mist of trials and your words spoke to my heart! Thank you for being a faithful man of God!
I said OUCH! I have listened to this sermon several times and each time, Godâ€™s word has convicted. Mr. Baucham is blessed with the way he preaches and gets the point across. Great teaching preaching. I encourage all to listen to this sermon. I actually was upset with a supervisor recently and so I purposefully listened to this sermon and OUCH!
Great Sermon! I have struggled for years with the talk of rapture and all the rest of it surrounding revelation and Daniel. You make it BEAM from His WORD! Beyond appreciative of your understanding and ability to convey! Thank you!!
Very humbling and Christ focused! What a game changer focus. Instead of just â€śBehave betterâ€ť, Voddie teaches the gospel where a man is righteous and justified by faith alone through Christâ€™s complete work. Praise the Lord! Much I must consider in how I feel that the highest priority my exterinal behaviour and not a Christ dependent daily life.
Wonderful! When the preacher says that divorced and remarried Christian are not second class Christians, where does this take us?. Is it okay for and elder to be divorced and remarried? A pastor? A Sunday school teacher? A deacon? Does not being a second class Christian dismiss all limitations? What about "the husband of one wife" qualification for elders? Does that apply here? These are questions I am asking, not challenges. I am not taking anybody on. Does the preacher read these comments? I would like to see what he thinks. Thanks.
Great Sermon! I thank you Voddie for calling attention to the spurious claims being made by John Shelby Spong. I'm not prefacing his name with his titles. I grew up in the Episcopal church and was in the last class confirmed by Bishop Rath before Spong took over. Back then, 1979, he was just a bishop of the Newark diocese, but even then my parents could see that his ideas were unbiblical. He is primarily responsible for the hundreds of thousands of former Episcopalians like myself, who left the church when it became unbiblical I do miss the church of my youth: singing the Psalms in morning prayer, and the great amount of bible knowledge and knowledge of the Reformation I learned as a child. But I have to thank him in one sense. When he started a lot of the controversy which, as you mentioned, is even today rocking the Christian community, it forced me to examine what I really believed. It forced me to go back and really read the Bible; to see what it actually said. I realized then what God said about changing the Bible...even one word...and it made me a stronger believer as a result. Let us contend for the true faith, brothers and sisters. The church, the ecclesia, is us; the body of believers. We will not be popular, or numerous, but we will stand, and with God's help overcome until the end.
I love this sermon! I'm so glad to hear someone combat the idiocy people spout today as reasons for believing the Bible is essentially a book of symbolism, allegory and fables; that it isn't essentially true. They seem to feel that if you're educated, you can't believe Christianity, and must believe evolution. It wasn't until I was in college as a Biology major studying the cell, genetics, and physics that I realized evolution, the missing link, etc. couldn't be true. Just the probability of nucleotides alone is 1 x 10 the 80th power. Statistically impossible. And that's just one thing. The big bang theory violates the laws of thermodynamics. My point is if people REALLY studied science, they'd have to believe God created the earth. Scientists are now claiming aliens seeded the planet for this same reason. The science doesn't add up. The math does not work and they know it. So don't feel guilty about not believing the science. Even the scientists don't really believe evolution.
After many years of study, I started to believe the Bible, not only because it worked for me, but because the science is false. When people claim they believe the science, encourage them to really investigate it like it did. Where's the missing link? Encourage them to find ANY scientific proof. There isn't any.
Great Sermon! I use this message in all my Bible classes once a year, it never gets old. I had a student this year quote the entire phrase Dr. Voddie gives from memory to his classmates after having not heard it since the beginning of last school year.
