Great Sermon! We listened to this pod on the way to gymnastics yesterday. Last night at bedtime my 10 year old daughter called me to her room and told me she wasn’t saved. She had prayed a prayer when she was almost 5 and had been under the impression she was saved. But last night she realized she was a hell bound sinner. She accepted Christ as her Saviour last night. Thank you for this ministry!
Pertinent question Setting aside any cases of fleshly authoritarian abuse, in this age characterised by secularism, self-will, liberalism and antinomianism in Christian settings, IFB churches are attacked and detracted this way from hellish quarters because of their stand against all that pertains to ungodliness. Though fully committed to the gospel of grace, they have for long been falsely misrepresented as 'legalists', as preaching salvation by works because of their fixed stand for godliness and separation in the Christian walk. In short they are victims of destructive critism from hell itself whose motive is hatred of godliness. Independent fellowships have the right, if so they wish, to stablish or maintain godly distinctives and to abide by them. It is up to the individual to adhere him/herself with a fellowship holding to similar personal affinities or not. It is true that with strict principles in place, the risk of obscuring the work of grace is real and it takes a good balanced teaching to avoid it. However, suspected personal rebellion might be the cause behind the cultic detraction.
Great Sermon! Sodomites are more proud of their particular sin than all other sins that are committed. They LOVE their perversions and this vile sin. They are not “gay,” they are sodomites. That is what God has named these individuals and God does not lie.
