Great Sermon! i just got soooo much out of your sermon on ---THE HOLY SPIRIT,,,was refreshing to hear GOD,S WORD preached..thanks and glory be to GOD first,then thank you also CAM for the HOLY SPIRIT QUIDE ING YOU--PRAISE GOD--love in CHRIST JESUS BEV
Powerful sermon! The forgotten 10th commandment. This is the one Paul said killed him for it is a law for the heart and mind. This is what sent the rich young ruler away as an unrepentant unbeliever. It indicts lust, materialistic living and American Idol and narcissistic Facebook self seeking. It affects how we dress, what we buy, how we use our time, and what we value. God interposes a law for the mind of all men forbidding all to break it, which Christians above all cannot ignore. It also rebukes the sinful desire to get Government to take from others to give to you or others instead of personal responsibility! Communistic socialism is Coveteousness by forced sharing from envy, which is legalized theft, not virtue or truly liberality from heart.
Bold and fearless Sermon! This is the 3rd in a series of sermons by Pastor Butler mainly expounding the civil/political use of Godâ€™s law on the series of sins of 1 Tim 1:8-11. I look forward to the rest of the series.
Pastor Butler condemns the moral schizophrenia of both modern evangelicalism and civil religion in the public square.
He outlines the character of this sin from Godâ€™s created order, the destruction of Sodom, the Old Testament penalty of death, and the New Testament confirmation of the nature of this evil. Accordingly, he calls for the sin once more to be criminalized (along with abortion) as the least Christians should settle for and boldly calls for the civil magistrate to repent for being unholy, ungodly and unrighteous before Christ the Lord! God requires it from the magistrate.
But whilst he seems to support Rick Warrenâ€™s opposition to firing squad execution for sodomites, he leaves unstated what criminal legal penalty actually should be enacted today. Are sodomites simply to be left to the inward punishments of vile affections, reprobate sense and strong delusions or should they be outwardly punished two or more to a cell along with the rest of the fornicators, kidnappers, liars and perjurers who are contrary to sound doctrine in 1 Tim 1?
