This sermon focuses on Jesus’ prayer in John 17:1-5, and the fact that Christ seeks for the Father and Himself to be glorified through the coming of His hour. Beck is truly into New Age, which is not Christianity. I also focus on God’s glory and some of what that means, along with tips on the way we should pray. BTW, in this sermon I mention the Glenn Beck in not a Christian. Because of this, Beck is predisposed to any form of religion that comes down the road. Paul Washer is a fearless man that gets invited to speak in a lot of churches one time, because he makes Christians uncomfortable. So that little boys lead us with their silly little ideas and we like it that way, because we really do want our best life now." ~ Paul Washer, sermon, "The Great Privilege.""How dare we, all these stupid evangelists walking around telling men after they've made some little prayer that they need to write their name in the back of their Bible, and put the date and if the devil ever comes to them, they need to show him that. But fear that one day I will answer to God for what I did and did not do in His name. Or do you ponder their words as if they could be true? It brought no genuine repentance, it brought no faith; it's no different than the Roman church that baptizes every infant that is born." ~ Paul Washer"The greatest act of judgment that God can pour out on a people is being poured out on America, and it is this: He's taken away the knowledge of God, and He's closed the mouth of those who are supposed to be speaking for Him.
Are you complaining all the time and telling her what she’s not doing right? Moreover, many women today are depressed and feel emotionally abused because their husbands do not bless them with their words.
We need to look to Christ for who we are and who we shall be.
If we want to bear lasting fruit for the Kingdom of God, we cannot be looking to our inner being.
When you die, your friends will bring you to church. Reference: Hodder and Stoughton, Studies in Theology: The Church and the Kingdom of God, 1895, p. On the most elementary level, you do not have to go to church to be a Christian. But in both cases if you do not, you will have a very poor relationship. Another reason for the de-churching of many Christians is the historic individualism of evangelical Christianity and the grass-roots American impulse against authority.
Reference: Disciplines of a Godly Man, Crossway Books, 1991, p. The natural inclination is to think that one needs only an individual relationship with Christ and needs no other authority.
