âWhat advantage is it to us to know that God has created, and by His providence doth still uphold all things? A. That we may be patient in adversity;8 thankful in prosperity;9 and that in all things which may hereafter befall us, we place our firm trust in our faithful God and Father,10 that nothing shall separate us from His love;11 since all creatures are so in His hand, that without His will they cannot so much as move.â (Heidelberg)
When a Christian is married - ALL quote, "human" problems have Christian solutions. Human life becomes Christian life. The Holy Spirit does not affect a connection between two people even in marriage. The "mind of God" is not accessible to the sinners body, thus cannot be quote "unified". Only when marriage is blessed by God is it TRUE marriage - and family is part of that blessing. Marriage providentially created by God endures by grace. Non-christians cannot procure this.
Great Sermon! Excellent message Prof. Gritters. Thank you indeed. In James chapter two we find the seemingly contradictory statement of; "faith, if it hath not works is dead" Here we seem to find a contradiction to Paul's teaching. Faith is dead? How can faith be a dead faith? Is faith not the gift of GOD? But the point here is that works done without the presence of faith in the sinner reveals that faith is not present in the efforts of the sinner. Also that works done by the true faithful Believer is completely different. No works of any mortal can justify before GOD. When the Holy Spirit's indwelling manifests the gift of GOD that is faith, then works are serving God alone.
Bless you Prof. Gritters.
Great Sermon! Excellent teaching of this very important doctrine of truth. The Lord wrote His Book of Praise in the Book of Psalms. Why would you not use the Praise which God provided for His worship? How could anyone replace it by the works of sinners? This is a Biblical message that really needs to be received and comprehended by all believers. Praise GOD by God's praise. Nothing else can supersede this Book.
Excellent Sermon. Thank you Rev. Silversides. This sermon goes straight to the heart of the matter and is so very appropriate for these terrible days of apostasy. Taking us right back to the Scripture teaching and from the view of Paul's times and our own day to show that 1st Timothy 2 is precisely how we should handle the woman's role and the man's role - whatever the culture or times we live in. This teaching would blow the minds of modern Liberal churches such as the C.of E. and the C.of S. But then they are UNBiblical churches. Well done Rev. Silversides. God bless your ministry.
Great Sermon and Teaching. The Olivet Discourse a fascinating prophetic word of Christ Jesus. It reveals a future of trials and tribulations for the Christian family. Kings and rulers, communities around them and even their own family members will attack the believers. R.C. Sproul has done an excellent teaching of the intricate detail of this prophecy, showing the history of the church under persecution for the sake of our Lord. A persecution which continues today. God be with us.
Thankyou Dr. Sproul.
Great Study! Many are called few are chosen. Many denotes the larger quantity but not all. Few of course denotes a much lesser quantity. Chosen is an act of God and not an action in the capacity of man. The Elect or Remnant illustrates that the true church is always a small group within the generations. This is an excellent study by Jim Dodson and an important consideration for the Church today with so much satanic Liberalism affecting churches. Thank you Jim. God be with your ministry.
Excellent Evidence. Satanic Liberalism in churches is simply Satan at work on sinners. Liberals are not Christians and Christians are not Liberal. Dr. Daniel does and excellent contention in the battle for truth and God's Word in this sermon. Satan's followers the Liberals seek to disprove the Word of God by many inventive ways, by their actions and convictions they manifest that they do not have faith. In attacking the Bible these Liberals attack God which of course is part of Satan's plan. Thank you Dr. Daniel for a powerful and truthful exposition and vital critique of the battle today.
Great Sermon! Interesting debate.
However have we not been here before?
All vaccines in history had to be tried and tested by time and application to the human body. Did they work? Has man found cures for some of the most deadly diseases? Of course!
Doubt is a form of human research, without it we may make mistakes.

Romans 13:1 Is about GOD ordaining the governments of nations.
Rom 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.â = When Paul wrote this the military government of Rome was in power.
With God in control even Biden/Harris administration can serve HIS purpose, What we need to pray for with an evil Democrat admin is Godâs intervention and providence even when Satanâs followers are in the top job.
God accepts sinners in the task of government as always. The Christians task is to seek Godâs providence in a fallen world and reprobate governance. Fight the good fight in the battle of good and evil.
Thus we pray that God will limit the Democrat government and policies and care for America in adverse times such as these. Godâs Will be done â Not Democrat.
To thine alone be the glory in this reprobate world. Amen!

Lev 18:24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: 25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. 26 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: 27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled) 28 That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you. 29 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people. 30 Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God
2Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust."
