Great Sermon! Justin, using your analogy of the doctor leaving the medicine on the porch: would the doctor be a "bully" if instead he went inside the house and gave the medicine to his patient, ensuring it was truly taken and in the right amount,the patient was improving, etc? Remember, some patients are too sick to take a pill.
Then why call the Lord a "bully" for rescuing sinners from a far, far greater peril, an eternal one? The fact is that Jesus Christ is a Savior, a Rescuer. He truly rescues, not theoretically but actually. He doesnt just leave His salvation "on the porch," as it were. He goes in and rescues the ones who are dead in trespasses and sins and (get this) unable to save themselves, unable to take the medicine. And God does not just make us well, He "made us alive"! Eph 2:5 He has chosen His people from eternity past. See Romans 8:29-30 foreknown, predestined, called, justified, glorified
Great Sermon! It's hard to shake around this issue. I have nothiced this creeping in along with other issues. Glad someone pointed it out because, it does not have to be this way.
All cultures have their own problems with racism, and being white no one has to keep reminding me of our past.
We all need to be more like Jesus, no matter what color we are. We need, more than ever, to praying for each other.
Great Sermon! There‚Äôs a high pitched sound in your recordings that makes it unbearable to listen to your wonderful podcasts. I‚Äôve missed a lot of your podcasts solely due to this issue in the recording. Would you please try to fix it!
Interesting Take Interesting connection between US govt shut-down and the British govt. naming a Minister of Loneliness. Could have spent more time on why being lonely is such a bad thing. Or do a bit more research and find out if the problem of loneliness is limited to England only, and what studies in the US show about the health effects. Why not dispute the studies, and then ask if loneliness is such a big deal when so many people are more occupied with their smartphones, even when driving their cars.
Great Sermon! Although Chuck Norris is an American patriot committed to the U.S. Constitution, he espouses New Age philosophy which he learned from the East Asian martial arts like karate. Chuck Norris even said that his main mission is to teach people about the East Asian martial arts.
The Bible Believer realizes that the "spirit" of karate is demonic because it comes from Buddhism. All those manifestations in karate like breaking 1 metric tonne of ice with a single chop is caused by demons.
In Mark 5, we read that the demon possessed man in the Gadarenes was able to break the chains binding him.
As Bible Believers, we should have nothing to do with karate, taekwondo, kung fu, tang soo do, or any of the East Asian martial arts due to their demonic roots.
Praise Be to God! Thank you for sharing your testimony. I've listened to quite a few of your broadcasts but had no idea until now just what the Lord saved you from. I was really blessed and encouraged by this!
Insightful! Sure, officials in the many nations around the world are aware of their national sovereignty being eroded by the United Nations, but we must remember that national sovereignty, though liberty-friendly and accountable to the people, is a secular and humanistic movement.
Great Sermon! Would be wonderful if we could get more sound as I have to be too close to the screen to hear Kevin B.
My sound on computer is wide open. All internal speakers.
Enjoy your station VIA web. here in Virginia especially Kevin Boling.
Great Sermon! Thank you so much! What you've said has incited me to write to my daughter, as a fellow sister in Christ to glorify our Lord, not the enemy.
I am ready for the rebuttal from the flesh, but God's glory and Holiness must be feared.
Excellent, rich in scriptures! This teaching brings to mind Psalm 101:2-3 KJV "..I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside: it shall not cleave to me." and Proverbs 3:20 KJV "Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness."
A very important discussion. Thank you. As well as the sun and moon being magnificent evidence of the Majesty on high, his power and his sovereignty, he created them also for signs.(Gen 1:14) The total eclipse is a sign, a foretaste of the total chilling darkness, coming one day upon the earth (Mt 24:29, Rev 6:12, & other scriptures). It is a glimpse lasting a few minutes of what shall be. It is a warning from God, and the swath is cutting through our nation (becoming more ungodly daily) and the 'bible belt.' Now is a perfect time to preach to the lost the gospel message of the light, Jesus Christ; and to 'get into the ark' while there is still time. For God "...is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." (2 Peter 3:9 KJV) While the world hastens to celebrate this coming event, the total solar eclipse is a very grave sign.
Another worthy sermon! The Old Testament saints looking FORWARD to Christ, and the New Testament saints looking BACKWARD to Christ is such a wonderful explanation of saving faith throughout the ages. It reminds me of the very physical center of the Holy Bible wherein the Word (Christ) said, "Then said I,Lo, I come in the volume of the book it is written of me." (Psalm 40:7 KJV)
Thank you Pastor Boling for another wonderful sermon.
Great Sermon! Hi Brother Boling!
I also saw that article about VBS on SermonAudio.
I'm a senior citizen, saved from my sins by the grace and power of Jesus Christ the Lord, and have been walking for Him for almost 34 years now. For a long time now, I've been concerned by the frivolity of presenting the gospel in churches. Think about this: How many young pastors preach with the same frivolity they new as children--once they're grown men? Many act more like comedians and entertainers than pastors! The eternal soul of human beings is a serious, serious matter, not to be taken lightly. One of the requirements Paul gives for elders is that they should be "grave". Surely, that doesn't mean there's no room for humor, but surely not where preaching Christ is concerned, Brother Boling. I fear that we have strayed w-a-y over into a way not Biblical at all. People aren't afraid of sin and hell because it doesn't seem a serious matter after all.
I'm glad that you addressed this and thank you for your wise comments on the article.
