Should a Christian be a Freemason, or not?  Do we need to test Freemasonry by the Word of God – to see if Freemasonry is right or wrong, good or evil? What is it?  What does God say to us about it in His Holy Word?

Can You Endure Patiently In Suffering ? – Sermon – March 02 2014

Can You Endure Patiently In Suffering ? – Sermon – March 02 2014

Questions answered in the Sermon:

Think about this, No one, other than Christ, suffered so much as Paul in regards to beatings physically and attacks verbally, and yet, at the same time, no one rejoiced as much as Paul!   Isn’t that Strange? – Wouldn’t you think, that the one who suffers the most is the one who is most defeated, and most sorrowful?  The one who suffers the most is rejoicing the most?  What secrets did he , Paul, have, to rejoice even in his afflictions?  Do you think we can learn something from him?

Are you suffering today from something that has come into your life?  Are you groaning, moaning, wincing, bewailing your fate?  Are you prepared for the struggles, sufferings to come, whatever they may be – abuse/persecution for the gospel, loss of family, wealth, health, friends – as was the case with righteous Job?  Do you see God’s great purpose in your afflictions?  Do You believe God will rescue you from ALL your afflictions?

Why Are There So Many Denominations? – Sermon – August 18 2013

Why Are There So Many Denominations ? – (Example: ELCA and LCMS Differences ) – Sermon – August 18 2013

Ever wondered, why there are so many denominations in the world, so many divisions in the visible church of Christ on earth?  Shouldn’t we all just be one?  Can’t we all just agree?  Can any one denomination be right?  What should be our attitude toward people in other denominations?

What does God say to us about this in His Word?  Are we lowly, meek, enduring each other patiently with love in Christ?  If the basis for true unity in the church, according to Jesus Christ, is that we are all in agreement on the truth of God’s Word as it appears in the Bible, what is the trouble, that causes all the division amongst churches today?

Do any of the churches today, flatly deny the teachings of scripture and say God’s Word is in error?   What is the Historical Criticism approach to teaching the Bible, and how does it lead churches astray, and against the word of God, and therefore, against God?

Listen for these questions and answers about Why Are There So Many Denominations ? – (Example: ELCA and LCMS Differences ), below in the 1-part Video , or the 1-part Audio MP3 Sermon below the Video. 

Scriptures below from the church bulletin used in the Sermon:

Psalm 63: 3-11,  Deuteronomy 13: 1-5,  Acts 20: 24-35,  Matthew 7: 15-23

Keywords: the Bible is the inerrant word of God, Historical Criticism, false prophets, wolves , judging others, judging righteously, wolfs in sheeps clothing, ELCA ,  sex outside of marriage, homosexuality, gay marriage, gay pastors and priests, abortion, liberal seminaries, false teachers, judging others, righteous judging, judging rightly , leading people astray, error in scripture, infallible words of scripture, seeker sensitive sermons, doctrine, God’s inerrant word, 2 Timothy : 4    In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
