How easy and how often do we fall into the trap of assuming more authority than God have allotted to us. On the contrary, He calls us to loving, humble submission to Him which becomes evident through our loving service of others. The outline of the sermon is as follows: I. Presuming to be the Judge II. Presuming to be the Sovereign III. God alone is the Sovereign Judge over all things
Great Sermon! after listening again, it inspired me to do some soul searching, and I found this: "As understanding is acquired by right living, difficulties become fewer, and perplexities fade away, like the perishable mists which they are. How then, can two people of the opposite sex, be ultimately happy when they disobey the commandments, especially that of presumption? Without God' blessing in a union, there is nothing. Love therefore, can only be, a four letter word that means 'work for God' ". I will pray for all of you, that you may continue your work, so that when someone else like me starts looking for answers, you'll be there to provide them!

Great Sermon! Deepest feelings for special someone, opposite sex, some may say fools rush in...but those feelings are there nonetheless, they are very real. Discovery is made that she/he is married. To walk away (for love of God) is true love. It still hurts. To presume however, that God will make an exception in my case, is to sin the great sin against God...the sin of presumption. Thank you for explaining this to me. Samson
