Great Sermon! As a Christian who owns a business, I seek to honor the Lord in how I conduct my business, how I treat my customers, and how I manage my finances. Every customer leaves with a Bible, a Gospel Tract, and other materials. To say that a Christian cannot make money in his business is neither biblical nor sensical. Nothing in the Bible condemns the making of money, only the love of it.
The problem with Chik-fil-A isn't the dropping of support from the SA or FCA; it is the open and public support a pro-homosexual, pro-LGBT faux-Christian organization such as Covenant House.
All Christians need to treat all men with respect and dignity, even the person caught up in the sin of homosexuality or transgenderism. These sins are on par with lying, perjury and murder according to 1 Timothy 1:9-10. And these people need to repent of their sins and trust the savior... just as I did, and others do worldwide.
God loved a wicked person such as myself so much that He died for me on a cross. His death was also for the homosexual and the transgender. Only Christ can free them from the bondage and penalty for their sin. So love them enough to point them to the Savior, Jesus Christ the Lord.
Great Sermon! My dad always said that Christian businessmen and Christian business is a contradiction of terms. Because as a businessman and business your number one objective is to make money. So being a Christian will always take a backseat to making money.
Airport Body Scanners: Sinful Lust It should be noted that airport body scanners reflect the sin of lust, particularly because they generate a picture of a naked person. A righteous government would not frisk people and scan naked images of them in the name of "security." Scanning naked images of people and frisking them in the name of "security" is really the sin of sexual lust. Thinking that mass surveillance can ensure people with 100% "security" from the "boogie men" is wishful thinking. It should also be noted that mass surveillance, even in the name of "security", is really wickedness. There is no "security" when you are being watched by wicked people in government hellbent on all manner of depravity.
Great Sermon! I never thought Chick-fil-A would ever wilt and fold for ANY reason. This is one company that I believed would "endure to the end." Whew! Wow! What a disappointment.
Thank you Kevin Swanson and Generation Radio for explaining what really is going on and doing so in a thorough manner. I am hurt and disappointed with this surprising decision by the company I always bragged about, NEVER EVER believing they would do anything like this. Sodomites seem to be winning all the time, now. America is the new Sodom and Gomorrah, only more bold and arrogant. I'm done with this once admirable company. I now wonder what they will do next? The sodomites win AGAIN! I hope that all Christians will stop patronizing the business by not eating there any more.
Again, thanks for sharing this information with us by making it available for us here on SermonAudio.
Great Sermon! While we totally agree that it's shameful that professing evangelicals have such a low view of abortion as the vile, wicked sin that it is, dismissing people who opposed illegal immigration as wanting to just keep the Mexicans out is a cheap shot and basically an ad hominem. Christian of all people should have an understanding of the rule of law.
Great Sermon! Great podcast! Iâ€™m not an expert, and Iâ€™m not a smart person, but I wonder if a critical piece to the mental health crisis might be caused in part from the food as well. My observation is that our country is overfed and undernourished. Food has changed so much since my great grandparentsâ€™ generation. We have added chemicals to the food that have been scientifically proven to cause disease, and our food is being grown in dead soil with conventional farming practices, resulting in very poor quality nourishment. We have such a desire for cheap, convenient food, so we donâ€™t have to spend much time at home and instead can entertain ourselves. Reading the Bible and more recently your books has opened our eyes to the greed of man. I used to believe that these big food companies and our government had our best interest in mind, but Iâ€™m afraid itâ€™s quite the opposite! Through the work of the Holy Spirit and daily reading of Godâ€™s word we have improved our familyâ€™s physical and mental health by growing and preparing a large portion of our large familyâ€™s needs. We certainly donâ€™t have perfect health, but this change in diet has improved it and added hours of productivity to our day. All glory to God, this was not us! I have to wonder if it might help others as well.
Great Sermon! Four years later, regarding the first/only comment that was posted here, I agree with JacTrac's comments. Fox still remains the lesser of the evils of all popular "news" shows.
I never, even in my wildest dreams, would've come close to imagining how popular the sin of sodomy would become. Even church organizations, organizations--not the true church -- Ekklesia, have embraced and are actively accepting and promoting this sick sin and those who endulge in it. Sodomy has never been accepted by God, neither in the Old, nor the New Testament, and never will this ungodliness, no matter how much it is promoted here in America, be acceptable to God. It is an abomination.
Great Sermon! Yes, Bible is clear do not owe anyone anything and that includes money to your financial institution.
The Bible also says I could do everything in Christ who strengthens me and we could get out of debt because Christ can give us the wisdom, strength, and discipline to be debt-free.
We need more sermons on being debt-free in our churches.
Yes, but....! What about proverbs 31? Where a woman is obviously buying and selling land she's a realtor, tailor, seamstress, and so on.
What about the Roman empire where half of the population were slaves included women. If a woman is a slave and has a family, did she have the right to go to her master and tell him "I'm sorry I have to stay home and can no longer be your slave?"
What about communist countries where it is illegal not to work? Does a woman quit her job and risk going to prison or paying fines? So I believe Titus 2 is a passage were preachers just come with their preconceived biases and try to explain it not realizing there are situations that force woman to work.
Great Sermon! I do understand where Mr. Swanson is coming from. I also enjoy hymns. But one must not be blind in the age we live in and face reality. Churches are switching more and more to contemporary/rock. In 20 years hymn singing churches we be a minority. Mostly among the Protestants churches. Evangelicals churches will all switch from hymns to other forms of music.
Great Sermon! I have a neighbor that is a great example of Proverbs woman. She grows a lot of food and doesn't waste anything. She goes to a lot of work to give away her excess, lovingly makes meals for the mission, takes excess to the grocery store to give away, cares for her husband and grown children, does all the accounting for her husband's business even though she hates it, helps widows and orphans, and volunteers for many things. She has definitely strengthened her arms and doesn't boast to everyone about what she is doing. She believes people think she doesn't do anything because she's not working outside the home, but she is the hardest working woman I know. She is an amazing example to me.
Great Sermon! Yep! Men are the culprit. It began at the judicial bench. In the past, divorced women with children had to struggle because of judicial inequities that literally released men from their full responsibilities.
What is the difference between cops killing black fathers and women killing babies because the father is absent from the home?
Is anyone paying attention to the number of black women being killed at the hands of law enforcement? Law enforcement?
Laws. Trump breaks them every day. The religious leaders support him openly. Christians, of a certain kind, keep silent. We are all lawless. We accuse some and excuse others. Dems support abortion. Both Dems and Reps support Planned Parenthood.
Pecker of AMI has the laundry of Trump supporters. Mark it down!
