The Olympics: Highly Esteemed Among Men Jesus clearly stated: 'that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in The Sight of God.' By that very definition, the Olympic Games, both Summer and Winter, are abominations in The Sight of God because they are highly esteemed among people in a worldly sense of prestige. The example of Luke 16:15 is a noble example to learn from. This sermon shows that our call is to run a spiritual race, not a worldly race with the intent on seeking worldly prestige.
Sound words for dark times This is an excellent presentation of scripture passages that deal with the judgment of God, and what is the right response to God's judgment. Put in simple terms, yet with a thorough presentation of pertinent examples from the word of God, this should help the prayerful listener to overcome in this time of calamity. Let us obediently hearken to the Lord our God, humbling ourselves under his mighty hand, that he may exalt us in due time to the glory of his name.
Popery: Rebellion Against Yehovah This sermon clearly demonstrates that Roman Catholic popery is really the sin of rebellion against Yehovah. Just as Yehovah put down Korah's rebellion in Numbers 16:1-50, so He will put down the Vatican's rebellion against Him. A sermon like this is also a call to repent of the sin of rebellion which is known as popery.
Mother Teresa: Rebellious Catholic This sermon shows that Mother Teresa, born Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, (26 August, 1910 - 05 September, 1997) was a rebellious Catholic. However, her rebellion against Yehovah has been put down by Yehovah when she died on 05 September, 1997. This sermon is also a call to repent of the damnable heresies of popery for those who are caught up in it.
Mother Teresa: Died in Her Sins Mother Teresa, born Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, (26 August, 1910 - 5 September, 1997) died in her sins and is now being tormented in Hell, and will later on be judged at the Great White Throne and be cast into the Lake of Fire. It is worth remembering John 8:24 in times like these. This sermon shows why every person, who passed away as a Roman Catholic, only died in their sins.
A clear answer from Scripture Grounded in what the Word says, point by point, concerning the second coming is wonderfully handled here.
It is a demonstration of mastery to know how to build sound doctrine from the meaning of the text. That is done with a clarity in this answer:
honoring the Lord and His Word.
Mother Teresa: Slain By The Lord Mother Teresa, born Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, (26 August, 1910 - 5 September, 1997) passed away on 5 September, 1997 at the age of 87. While we assume that Mother Teresa died of congestive heart failure at old age, the reality is that Mother Teresa was slain by The Lord's Righteous Wrath. If Mother Teresa had been around in the days of Elijah on Mount Carmel, Elijah would have slain Mother Teresa with the sword. We know that Elijah slew the prophets of Baal and the prophets of the grove in 1 Kings 18. Now Mother Teresa is being punished for her sins in Hell and will be punished in The Lake of Fire.
A church which the worlds likes best Here is what Charles Spurgeon would have to say about contemporary praise churches, "That very church which the world likes best is sure to be that which God abhors."
The world seems to favor contemporary praise churches, including those of the New Calvinist variety due to their uncanny ability to entertain the goats.
New Calvinism: Wordliness posing as Calvinism This sermon shows why New Calvinism is really worldliness posing as Calvinism. It is evident that New Calvinists promote CCM as well as worldly culture like pro sports all while appearing Calvinistic on the exterior.
Mother Counter Reformer Teresa This sermon shows that Mother Teresa was a modern day Counter Reformer of the 20th century. We remember the push for the Godly Protestant Reformation throughout the 16th century. 4 centuries later, Mother Teresa would come on the scene in a futile attempt to undo the Protestant Reformation. The Protestant Reformation will never be forgotten, but Mother Teresa and everything related to popery will be forgotten in the future. Someday, Mother Teresa and every pope will be judged at the Great White Throne and cast into the Lake of Fire. Remember Revelation 20:11-15.
Great Sermon! I was involved with a Sovereign Grace Baptist Church whose pastor drifted toward preachers like Piper and Keller promoting their books and beliefs. It came to a point where I had to separate because to question this was not open to discussion. The more I thought about Keller and Piper the more troubled I was when I read what these men believe. And their association with Driscoll and defense of his blasphemous statements as immaturity convinced me that all three are false teachers. Mohler did it for me when I heard him promote the "gay gene" idea. These men and many others are leading many astray and are to be avoided. Thank you Brian McClung for speaking on this topic.
Ps. As a side note I might also mention this church I left had also abandoned the AV/KJV for the NKJV and then later because of Piper went to the ESV. Sad,really sad! It was once a great church.
Very helpful wisdom As our family relocates, the choices for schooling are secular, ecumenical, or home-based. The biblical wisdom presented in this sermon is most helpful, and makes the decision clear. Thank you Reverend. Praise God.
