Great Sermon! I have always been fearful of addressing spiritual warfare. This is a real eye opener and I know that coming to grips with this will help me appreciate even more what God has done for me and the brethren. He has defeated sin and greater is he that is within me....Thanks
Great Sermon! Very powerful message. I had never heard this view and it will truly change my thinking about my sins. It is the lust of the flesh!

Great Sermon! If a Catholic receives Jesus as their personal savior they can continue being a practicing Catholic. All they have to do is disregard the unscriptural doctrines and adhere to the scriptural doctrines of the Catholic Church, pay attention only to the scriptural parts of the Mass like the Penitential Rite, Apostles-Nicene Creed, readings from the Bible, prayers to Jesus and the Lord's Prayer. They can also every night when they go to bed rededicate their life to Jesus and ask Him to forgive any sins that they may have committed during the day. It really makes no difference what church someone attends after they have received Jesus as personal savior. Just as long as the church adheres to the doctrine of the Deity of Christ.

Great Sermon! re: note for R. Davis from Oklahoma, who replied on 6/29/04 to "the enemy within."
Dear brother Davis: thanks for listening! I praise the Lord for the Gospel--which saved me, and continues to change me! I would never again participate in the R.C. church since it denies the true Gospel. Yet there are evangelicals who still attend the R.C. church, even though they don't agree with all that it teaches. This is unfortunate, but true. I've left my e-mail address--feel free to reply. Again, thanks for listening, and may the Lord Jesus Christ richly bless us both! greg

Great Sermon! Dr. Mazak:
You're an awesome teacher, your teachings are based on the word of God. I just have one issue that maybe you should look deeper into, and that is Catholicism. A practicing Catholic - CAN NOT BE A CHRISTIAN - he is either Catholic or Christian - not both. Catholicism is the false church and a false religion (occultic) for the age to come (antichrist). If the individual has renounced catholicism, yes he can become a christian, but that's the only way. Not to be offensive to you (FORMER Catholic), but expressing in truth and concern over this statement in one of your sermons. By the way, why are you now a Christian and not a Catholic still?
Greg Mazak counts it a joy and privilege to serve as the pastor-teacher of the Trinity Bible Church family, where he and his wife Nancy have worshiped since 1986. Greg has a degree in psychology from Ohio State University, where he became a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. He...
