Great Sermon! Thank you for the truth that sets those yellow florescent lines on each side of God's law..It keeps us on the path of fellowship with our Lord.

A Must Listen For those who say that Gods Law has no bearing for the New Testament believer should also listen to Albert Martins sermon entilted "The Fear of God in the Bible" which not only shows crystal clear that Fearing God and His holiness is absolutely biblical from Genesis through to Revelation (Old and New Testament) for all those who rightly divide the word of God will see that even in eternity - just like the angels of God - will love and reverentially Fear the Lord; just like a child who, although they love their father and realise that their father deepely loves them, they, knowing that their father is the head of the household and family will also respect and have a healthy fear of him too. The Fear of the Lord is the begiining of wisdom and will always be the case
Also, brother Voddie argued tge entire way through the sermon that the Sabbath is a command for us tge church, yet he was basing it solely on Exodus 16, which was a specific command given to the Israelites. The Lord's day is a day of worship, but it's not the Sabbath. The Jewish Sabbath under the Old Covenant was a day of physical rest, not a day of worship. And I'm a member of a 1689 Confessional church.
Great Sermon! We, the church have NEVER been under law, if we are Gentiles. As New Covenant believers, we have the requirements of the law written on our hearts and minds. Israel alone, under the Old Covenant were under the Mosaic law, which is why they alone were required to keep the Sabbath. Furthermore, this is why the Epistles are not merely absolutely silent on tbe requirement or command for Gentile (or Jewish for that matter) believers to keep the Sabbath day, or that it had changed to the Lord's day, it actually tells us that Christ is our Sabbath rest, that it's up to each individual to decide which day is holy, and that we Gentiles are not under the Decalogue (Acts 15), and as i stated have NEVER been so, but are under Christ's law of love. Hallelujah.
Great Sermon! Powerful. Hugely thought provoking. This is something everyone needs to prayerfully process.
Uncertain Voddie, do you turn off your cell phones, your internet connection and televisions, so as not to make others have to work on the Sabbath? Seems like a loophole there.
Very good Sabbath observation is a sorely needed topic. As a side note: ooking over the recent GFBC sermons and I'm sorry to see Voddie not preaching as much lately.

Great Sermon! The fence straddling Christian will look away from this post and turn toward the plain.
Consider your ways. Who's SABBATH is it anyway?
Was the Sabbath given for sports, grass cutting, car polishing, etc. or for the glory of God? Consider your ways!

Great Sermon! Thank you for speaking on this topic, Dr. Baucham. Looking forward to GfBC's upcoming sermons on thr 10 commandments where this will be fleshed out.
