Christ holding up the chin of a Woman praying imageAre You Free From Guilt and Shame? – Sermon – July 13 2014

Questions that will be answered in the Sermon:

Should a Christian still have a deep sense of guilt and shame in his or her life?  Should we carry that around with us?

How can we get rid of guilt and shame?  How can we be free from guilt and shame?  Adam and Eve experienced Guilt and Shame, why?  What is the purpose of guilt that God provides?  What is the use of shame that God provides?

Do you acknowledge this good use of guilt and shame in your life?  What mistake do Seeker Sensitive Pastors make, regarding their neglect to teach about the purpose of Guilt and Shame?  What then is the problem God has with the world, in regards to Guilt and Shame and how many people do not use it and learn from it?   How do Seeker Sensitive Pastors fail in the eyes of God, and cause danger not only for their Congregations but also for themselves as a Pastor?  Why then do so may Christians still feel guilt and shame over our former sins even after we’ve repented and believed in Christ and now walk with Him?

Psalm 75

‘1 We praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near;
people tell of your wonderful deeds.

2 You say, “I choose the appointed time;
it is I who judge with equity.

3 When the earth and all its people quake,
it is I who hold its pillars firm.[b]

4 To the arrogant I say, ‘Boast no more,’
and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns.[c]

5 Do not lift your horns against heaven;
do not speak so defiantly.’”

6 No one from the east or the west
or from the desert can exalt themselves.

7 It is God who judges:
He brings one down, he exalts another.

8 In the hand of the Lord is a cup
full of foaming wine mixed with spices;
he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth
drink it down to its very dregs.

9 As for me, I will declare this forever;
I will sing praise to the God of Jacob,

10 who says, “I will cut off the horns of all the wicked,
but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.”’

Should We Still Preach Fire and Brimstone – Sermon – December 05 2010

Should We Still Preach Fire and Brimstone ? – Sermon – December 05 2010

After reading Matthew 3: 1-10, do you think after learning about the purpose John the Baptist served announcing Christ’s coming, do you think we still need fire and brimstone preaching like this in church?  Do we still need to hear about the wrath of God, His righteous anger, His vengeance, His destructive power? Or is this a thing of the past?  Do we simply need messages only about love, joy, peace, hope and such things?   Do we need to keep God’s wrath and vengeance clearly on the radar scope of our faith?  Why do you think preachers, rarely preach like John anymore?  Is God any different in the New Testament, from how he was in the Old Testament, aside from Jesus Christ?  Why do the Seeker Sensitive churchs of today avoid preaching about God’s wrath?
