Great Food For The Soul! When I saw the title; âProfane Audacityâ I knew then I was in for a strong stance on Godâs infallible sovereignty expressing His absolute reign over the lives and eternal lives of men.
Youâve put it succinctly for a even a new born babe in Christ to grasp, âputting the cookies on the table so the kids can enjoy.â
I know there are many who reject Godâs sovereignty over His creation, even today I am amazed at many Bible teachers who seem to bash the doctrine of election.
I was brought up Baptist and I remember even as a child there were certain scripture which stood out to me, where I would question the doctrine of âman can choose salvation on his ownâ Iâd ask my mother, sheâd say, âGod gives man the choice to choose heaven or hell.â I never understood that, it never made sense in light of scripture especially Romans 3; Psalm 14:1-3; Acts 13:48 and a plethora of other scripture which loudly proclaim this universe belongs solely to the eternal One and we have no say so in the affairs of His Majesty.
Great Sermon! Minister Hines,
I am so glad to hear you preach on this subject, oh the importance this knowledge holds for the believer. We must believe the whole counsel of God or quit. It is by faith we believe not by sight, it is not our Lilliputian sized knowledge that will sustain us, itâs knowing we live in a fallen universe and God still has it in His control.
Beautiful Sermon Minister Hines,
God has His powerful hands on your ministry, I pray you will continue to honor Him in humility.
The trials of this life God uses that breaks us into the image of His Son, what a glorious privilege to be used of God.
Keep preaching Godâs majestic and authoritative truth!
Excellent Sermon! Iâve listened to this sermon over and over, my, my, my, to God be glory! Youâve unpacked Godâs truth with diamond cut precision and I was elated to hear someone breaking down the true meaning of Lordship salvation.
For the life of me I have never understood why such men as Zane Hodges, Dr. Andy Woods and others vehemently speak against this doctrine. Iâve heard many of them say, repentance and acknowledging Jesus is Lord and how being accountable to our Lord In obedience is somehow a distortion of the gospel.
If anyone would know the distinction between works and grace, a reformist would.
No matter how you slice it, Jesus is still Lord and repentance is a component of Godâs grace, if we cannot grasp that truth, then somethingâs terribly wrong.
Great Sermon! Minister Hines, I truly rejoice when I hear a servant of our Lord speaks truth, when many fail to take a stand for righteousness.
I remember during the time my brother pastored a PCUSA congregation here in Memphis, he spoke to the general assembly the evils of accepting homosexuals as clergy, well, you know the rest of the story.
My brother resigned from that position because the majority of the elders said, âmy brother voiced his opinion on the matter, but they had their own opinion and there was nothing wrong with allowing such evil to breed in Godâs church.
I was minister of music there for awhile after my brother left, and I saw things that never promoted the word of God, but the ways of men. I left that church some years ago when the Spirit Of God taught me the importance of 2 Corinthians 14:-18, being unequally yoked with unbelievers.
The coupâde grĂ˘ce was in 2015 at the PCUSA general assembly, there was an Iman from the Muslim religion to open up the services in prayer, in the name of the moon god, Allah.
I knew then, what God and others whom God sent to encourage me to trust God, step out on His word, and go out from among them.
I thank God for your stand for righteousness, keep plugging for the truth, because only truth will win in the end, Godâs truth.
Strong and Biblical teaching! Thank you for your strong and faithful stand for the true gospel of Jesus Christ, Pastor Hines! This sermon is so powerful and relevant for our day, and needs to heard. Thank you for caring about His flock/church!
Great Sermon! B. McCausland - Why don't you explain what you mean by "Polarised address missing the true issue"? How did I "polarize" anything? What is the true issue if not what I said it was in my sermon? Feel free to email me at: [email protected] anytime. Sincerely, Rev. Patrick Hines
Great Sermon! Catching up from our trip to Oregon for Joelâs wedding and hungering for this very topic. Praying for the youth in our church to hunger and thirst for Jesus alone. I will br training the Childrenâs leaders to do the same in our BSF School Program. Keep following The Shepherd, for your set our pace as we seek to follow Him too!
