In this passage we teach, learn, or reaffirm (including but not limited to), about the driven, the doomed, and the damned (they are contrary to verses 1-3). We also learn more about Gods judgment, hell, and His wrath. We learn about the incidents of false converts in our congregations, and the ‘unbiblical soteriologies,’ that create
I just got back from spending an amazing seven days in Tennessee. My primary reason for going, was to attend Reforming America Ministries third annual two-day Reformation Preaching Conference, which was hosted at Calvary Bible Church in Joelton. I traveled afar to sit, lean, listen, and learn under a collective team of extraordinary polished sophisticated
Prayers and private conversations were removed. Music ‘Praise God from whom all blessings flow,’ by Hymns.

Today while preaching I experienced quite a contrast between two people in the same line. The prideful man on the far left scoffed and laughed at the preaching of the Gospel. After I rebuked him, I later handed him a tract; but he threw it on the ground. When I attempted to pick the tract
During this outreach, I preached from Acts 17:30. When preaching the glorious Gospel to people, the Gospel brings more judgment upon them. That’s because they can no longer claim “ignorance” (i.e. I didn’t know). God did not overlook these people, in this line (or in any other line or crowd), and they were instructed. When
Lots of fruitful conversations afterwards. The Lord used three Christians to engage in some trilateral encouragement, I am thankful for them.
