Great Sermon! Hi Roger,
Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your preaching. Your desire for revival is contagious. We have been praying for revival for several years. Lord willing we will see Him do a great work. To Him be the glory!
Surface Impressions To be transparent, I am an evangelist for the church of Christ. And before I heard the sermon message, I wanted to read the comments. Immediately, the evidence in these comments do not paint an even close picture of what I read of God's plan is for those whom want to be saved. I am going to listen to the sermon as I am a fan of other lessons taught by other preachers.
However, I'd like to really caution everyone when it comes to the validity of where the church Jesus himself said He will build and when it actually started. Consider (forgive for the elementary pieces here) Matt 16:18, Romans 16:16, Acts 20:27-28, 1 Cor 1:1-5. These and many more prove that the church of Christ started well over 1,000 years before Alexander and Thomas Campbell came on the scene. Yes, God had them in mind before they were born-Jeremiah 1:5, but they weren't a part of God's eternal purpose-Eph 3:11.
Basically, please continue to ensure the #woke movement continues and searching for the truth; Acts 17:11. Comments marrying the church to the Campbell's tears down the arguments leaving those type comments with no validity or proof that the church of Christ is wrong. Please consider as well the Rev. letters to different churches. Some were bad 1 wasnt, dont put all together. More 2 follow Love u a
Great Sermon! What a blessing it was this week to listen to the Holy Spirit sermon series, a loud voice preaching against all cults of falsehood and death Isaiah 28:14-16, Revelation 6:8. What a timely sermon for the Halloween season. Thank you.
Great Sermon! this was excellent. Going through a trial you may find comfort in that your trials will often reflect what happened to David. You can then remember the Lord was always with David and David came out triumphant. Sometimes you are left alone without support or a comforter ( except Job's kind) to get us to lean harder on the Lord. He is a strong leaning tower.
Great Sermon! Thank you Brother for your service of our Lord Jesus. I listened to this sermon while my unsaved father in law could hear it also. I have witnessed and you have watered. May we beseech unto the Lord a revival and a reformation in our countries. Amen!
Campbellite False Gospel The Campbellites refer to their church as the "Church of Christ," but that is a misnomer since The True Church of Christ teaches Justification By Faith In Jesus Christ Alone Without Works. The so-called "Church of Christ" should be called the Campbellite Church since it was founded by Alexander Campbell. More troubling, the Campbellite Church believes in a false gospel of baptismal regeneration. It is very apparent that the Campbellite Church teaches works salvation by adding baptism to salvation. Another thing that is troubling is that Max Lucado, a very popular evangelical personality, is closely associated with the Campbellite Church. Max Lucado even believes the false gospel of baptismal regeneration, a damnable heresy damning multitudes of people to Hell. It is very sad, but very sobering that the majority of churches send more people to Hell than anything else. This also shows that the majority of churches are on the broad path to destruction stated in Matthew 7:13.
No hope for the pope No pope will ever be permitted into Heaven because of their blasphemous belief and propagation of a false gospel of sacramental salvation. The only predetermined destination for every pope is Hell, and eventually, the Lake of Fire.
The bottom line is that there is no hope in the pope and no hope for the pope.
Celebrity Status: The Lust of the Flesh Celebrity status is nothing more than the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. Remember the sobering warning of 1 John 2:15-17. This should show us why we must not be thought of as "celebrities."
The problem with celebrity status is not so much being well known since there are well known people who are deemed as pariahs by society at large. The problem with celebrity status is respectability in reputation, particularly since the desire for respectability in reputation is a sin, not just of pride, but of covetousness. In other words, the desire for respectability in reputation is the sin of pride and idolatry.
