Great Sermon! Thanks for pointing out the New Yorker article about the problem the elites have with the idea that having children within families is objectionable.
This shows you how important it is for Christians and churches to show this difference, that we are 'family focused' because that is what the Bible is telling us to do.
Christians think they can compete with the world's offerings, but the family issue shows you the difference.
Churches need to focus on what the Bible says about families, like 1 Timothy 5, which I would subtitle, 'God's Will for the Older Christian Woman.'
First, she is a widow, (even today, 96 percent of all people get married). Second, her own family should support her, though if younger, she should marry again.
Third, if her family cannot support her, than the church should, though she should meet certain 'work requirements' like 'washing the feet of the saints' and doing good works.
Even the book of James has a verse about 'real religion consists of..helping widows in their distress'
I think Christians and churches who skip by these chapters without seeing their application are doing a real disservice to the message of the Bible.
Great Sermon! This podcast is invaluable. It is such a privilege to be able to have an almost 30-minute conversation with you every morning about what is happening in the world.
Your efforts will be rewarded.
Great Talk! "Our modern society want to air condition Hell."
Excellent point! Thank you for giving attention to annihilationism. This is a topic that doesn't get discussed often.
There are few resources on the topic fortunately James D Martin has started addressing this topic in his sermon series "Problems with Annihilationism" on SermonAudio.
Great Sermon! God is good always! Thank you for the informative Analysis of Thanksgiving. I listen to you every day and value your opinion and the Christian point of view.
We are having rain today and very welcome to see!
A Blessed Thanksgiving giving to all!
Youth in Asia While I see where you are coming from, but the sentence "Death is part of life" is in a different category. One speaks of the reality of sin in everyday life, and the other speaks theologically of sin.
In life death is real, we all experience it, it's a part of life, you cannot escape it.
Disagree I liked your message on halloween. You said that "death is part of life" i diagree God did not create death. It is the consquence of the fall. How can God create death when He is the author of life. I am the way , THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE?" I HATE WHEN CHRISTIANS USE THAT STATEMENT BECAUSE IT IS WRONG.
Always interesting Thank you. Your discussion of Stephen Hawking was very informative. Your observations about the sentence in his obituary that he was a "triumph of mind over matter" were very insightful.
