Brilliant sermon! Praise be to God. This sermon should be essential listening for every believer. It is a superb exposition of text that renders deep insight into a sin that we have all been guilty of.
Thank you very much, Pastor Caldwell.
Great Sermon! One of the best sermons Iâ€™ve heard probably because itâ€™s so relevant and challenging. If Christ is ones master then circumstances are inconsequential. I needed to hear this today and apply in my work life . Great teaching for all life
Great Sermon! 17 years ago when this was preached I would not have understood this at all. Today I listen and itâ€™s like â€˜Amenâ€™ to every sentence! The word of God is so amazing. What a blessing to be a recipient of Godâ€™s electing love
Great Sermon! This is excellent. I've had this also happen to me, the hunting I mean. I also knew their motives. I found a greater appreciation for the depths of what Christ went through while He was on earth.
Excellent Must Hear Sermon! This is a must hear message, for all those who love the Lord Jesus Christ.
For those who are called by His Almighty name.
We need to be on the alert, and use His God given discernment to His true sheep, to guard against being deceived by all the false pastors and preachers, who do it their way and never God's way alone. To God be the glory! Amen!!!
Revelation 2:7 (A) "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches..........." Amen!
Great Sermon! Behold how greatly Christ loves His people! Pastor has a way of simply teaching the word that shows more of Christ's delight to save us. This is another facet of Christ's amazing love for us.
Great Sermon! Any perspective on slavery that does not emphasize the evil of Southern chattel slavery cannot be supported by scripture. Additionally, it worth noting that both Genesis 2 and Acts 17 clearly states that God made "man". In this context, he did not make a superior man (white) Europeans and an intrinsic inferior (black or those with much melanin). The persistent issue at hand is that many still hold to the inferiority of blacks in much of the societies with a dominant European population. The seeds of racism that were conceived and promoted around the world over the past 400 years has produced fruits of evil beyond measure. Christianity has lost credibility in the eyes of many as a result. And this perspective is justified given that the church has either promoted racism or granted its tacit support. Christians need to adhere to the scriptures and not to base their beliefs and ideologies on 17th-century godless unbiblical race philosophy.
Slaves Obey, no Abolition or Liberation theology The sermon is helpful and relevant in light of the recent Southern Baptist and Gospel Coalition conferences, particularly MLK50, while some leaders and ministers call for a needed "racial reconciliation" because of their resentfulness of slavery in the past, particularly of historic Southern Baptists. Some of these have even praised James Cone, the author of Black Liberation Theology, at his recent passing away and become SJWs in activism raising much of a tumult insisting on "white repentance" in the churches and that social matters are even above doctrinal matters, setting MLK as a saint and above Scripture! But we see in this passage and sermon that slaves were to obey and respect, not resent, their masters, "both the just and the unjust" (implying the institution itself is not unjust) not calling for Abolitionism or revolutionary social upheaval and activism contrary to what is being advocated by some today within the church, who set black against white! Since respect and obedience were to be given to Masters, even as Christians, where is the place for resentfulness, or unjust relation requiring a pretended need for repentance or reconciliation which the scripture clearly does not teach or imply? The growing and harmful error of SJWs today is here clearly exposed.
Great Sermon! Great truth and doctrine. What a threat way to live .Though made in Godâ€™s image, man is incapable to seek after and love God. The power of God in the new creation, and what He did to make this a reality for me is amazing grace. I cannot help but live to please my God and honor Him in every aspect of my life.
