We have an empowering resource we have either not been accessing, or that we've been neglecting to access. Please watch / listen to "Killing the Flesh."
"It is typical of those who betray the truth, betray the Church, betray Jesus that they do so with a kiss..." They will deny this or that truth all the while professing their esteem and attachment to Jesus… "
"They will dishonour their Master, but with pleasant smiles and smooth words. They will betray the Church of Jesus Christ but always assuring us that it is for love… "
"compromisers use smooth talk and flattering words to cloak their sin… and then they will charge those on the other side with being unkind, unfair, severe, uncharitable, unloving."
As a culture we love our money and we love those who have it! "The poor is hated even by his neighbor, But those who love the rich are many." Prov. 14:20. The World loves money, because money is stuff and stuff is life! It skews what we value. Solomon writes to the Lord's people not to value riches. What should be considered precious in a man is his loyalty...like David towards Jonathan, even more, like the Lord towards us, who although we were helpless and sinful He died for us.
We should be more than just nice because who knows what the future holds for us. If we are being kind we are doing it while not looking to be paid back. If you notice we will never be able to help someone if we are never looking. Are we willing to help or just go through the motions to get it over with there may even come a time when we are in a place where we need that meekness shown to us.
There is a place for negativity in preaching
When does Jesus Christ's message become less gracious and more reproachful?
-When a much privileged people reject the gospel
1 Not Repenting Of Sin Is Rejecting The Gospel
2 The Greater The Gospel Privileges The Greater The Judgment If They Reject The Gospel
In the attempt to be nice and loving, many sinners are kept from repenting and bringing for the proper fruits. This sermon discusses the importance of shunning and examines the several "R's" that should accompany sincere repentance.
