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.
Great Sermon! Thank you for your recent sermon on marriage. Foundation:healthy marriage.
It was right on target and what I and hopefully my husband needed to hear.
And, side note, I am fro Houston, The Heights, and thenTomball.
Again, missing my roots.
Great Sermon! Must hear! Very practical and reasonable instruction for today. This really made sense. Enlightened me to a proper Christian response to my weaknesses. Also, if Paul could not describe with words his heavenly rapture, how can people who claim to have gone to heaven and written books about it be credible?
Great Sermon! Thankful for contextual preaching Very powerful passage in context but is often abused and twisted Any biblical teaching must be claerly stated in the Bible A lot of false teaching you hear from these verses was never taught until early 1900â€™s which should cause concern for hearers
Great Sermon! I heard this sermon at exactly the right time. It reminded me of clear biblical truth. And though I'm still struggling to listen to What God Says and not my circumstances or emotions I know that his word is far superior
Great Sermon! I believe this is the break through that I have been wanting and needing all of my Christian life. To believe and walk by faith and not by sight.
Through my persecutions I magnifiedThem instead instead of God's word. That you and your faithfulness and most of all my Lord and my God and the Holy Spirit. God bless you and your faithfulness.
We walk by faith and not by sight!!!!
Great Sermon! Written in the time of Judges when "everyone did what was right in his own eyes"- sound familiar today? Wonderful exhortation to stay the course and trust the God of our circumstance. God rewards faith
