Wonderful Sermon By Pastor Anderson!



I have been hoping to find time recently to share this sermon with you all.  We watched this about three weeks ago; it was the first full length sermon of Pastor Andersons' that my husband and I watched together and he really enjoyed it.  Brian also suggested that next time we watch one together that we make notes of the verses so we can look them up afterwards, which I thought was a great idea!  Brian and I stayed up late that evening to discuss what we had watched and how fortunate we were to have realised early on in our Christian life how perverse Catholicism really is!  It is very refreshing to hear real preaching direct from the Bible,  please take the time to watch it!

And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.  And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.  For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.  For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Revelation 18:1-5

I've been studying Revelation with a passion lately. Not only is our pastor going through it line by line on Sundays (expository teaching), but I'm also doing a personal bible study on Revelation with Beth Moore as well. I'm learning so much and just like God promises, I've been blessed already for having studied this book.

BTW, I listened to the sermon he lost me when he started screaming bad words about gay ministers and kicking the pulpit. While I absolutely don't agree with homosexual ministers, I don't think that what he's doing is helping to win them to Christ. People are won over by truth and actions said and done in love, not hate. I always think of that simple saying, "What would Jesus do?" While Jesus did become angry with the Pharisees, I could never see him using swear words and kicking a pulpit with hatred in his voice. He loved them, too, just like he loves homosexuals.

Thank you for your comment Jackie!

I'm sorry that you didn't seem to enjoy the sermon...as our family did. I can totally understand that Pastor Anderson is so frustrated with the state of the church. Particularly with the detestable act of putting a homosexual in a ministers position. I do think that Jesus also acted in a similar way when He felt that His Father's house was being made a mockery:

Mark 11:15-18 ~ And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money-changers, and the seats of them that sold doves; And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple. And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. And the scribes and chief priests heard it and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.

I cannot believe that when Jesus was overthrowing chairs and tables in the temple as written in Mark 11, that he was talking to the scribes and chief priests in a calm tone of voice.

We feel that Jesus would be just as angry, if He found homosexuals preaching in His Father's house today.

I hope you are not offended with my response Jackie, as I am glad you commented with your opinion! Thank you for taking the time!

I'm not offended, but I still disagree. I know Jesus was angry in these passages, but I can't imagine him using swear words. There is a fine line between hating the sin and loving the sinner. Jesus accomplished that perfectly. I don't believe this pastor accomplished this at all. Yelling out swear words and calling names isn't going to help anyone. My children were in the same room and listening. If I wouldn't want them to hear those words or repeat them to anyone, then why would any Christian be "excused" to use them, even in frustration? Jesus hated what was being done in the temple, and yes he was frustrated and angry, but I don't for a second believe that he loved them any less or resorted to swearing at them with hatred spewing out of Him. The bible tells us to do EVERYTHING in love. It saddens me that this preacher did not adhere to that. We are to judge sin (determining what is right and wrong using the Word of God/and discernment of the Holy Spirit as our guide), NOT judge the person. That is God's job. I have a friend who is a lesbian and she is a wonderful person who has been deceived. I've continued to be kind to her and her daughters, and prayed for her for 7 months now, and it is finally paying off. The other day, we were able to talk about miscarriage, guilt and forgiveness. God is opening doors for me to minister to her. If I had called her bigoted names instead of showing her kindness and love, it would have ruined all my chances of witnessing to her. She knows my views on homosexuality. I hope you do not think that I am condoning homosexuality in anyway, shape or form. I'm just concerned at the lack of love being shown in that video. Hope you can understand my concern :) I just don't want you to be sucked into a doctrine of hate. Love you!

Sarah, I am glad you enjoy listening to my husband's sermons, and that you have learned from them.

Jackie, people are won to Christ by someone preaching them the gospel. Pastor Anderson spends hours almost every single day going door-to-door doing just that. Not exactly a hateful act, I'd say, while Christians everywhere are only concerned about being nice to people as they watch them dropping into hell in front of their eyes, without ever telling them point blank how to be saved. I am all for being polite, but sodomites are past the point of salvation, which is why the Bible calls them "reprobates".

A friend and I were discussing a megachurch on tv. We were wondering if we lived near it if we would visit it. Then we wondered if there are sodomite(KJ) couples(homosexuals and lesbians-libertytothecaptives.net explains that they both were called sodomites in old dictionaries) there and if they put their arms around each other while they sat in their seats. We wondered if their adopted children were there also. If a couple like that were in our church they would be asked to leave. I do not use the word "gay" as they want me to. I remember when that word first started being used. It is better explained in the book-The Marketing of Evil- by David Kupelian. They are a manipulative group-the transexuals,homosexuals,lesbians,etc. There is a chapter in the book-One Race,One Blood(answersingenesis)written by an African American -as he calls himself-Hijacking the Civil Rights Bus:Homosexuality and the Scriptures.

One more comment and them I'm done. I'm shocked that the pastor's wife would say that someone was beyond salvation. This is a scary doctrine, that is NOT biblical. If Christians really believe that then what is the point of discussing it at all, if they believe homesexuals are already beyond salvation? Jesus died for everyone! No sinner is "worse" than another. We're all sinners in need of Christ's salvation. Our righteous acts are like filthy rags. It's all about grace! He died for ALL sinners. Please, Sarah, don't go fall in line with any particular teaching by man. God's precious word warns against that. His word is enough! Thank you for being kind enough to publish my comments. I hope you haven't felt like I have been attacking you in anyway. I love you and I'm just concerned that you are being deceived. I hope you can see my heart behind this post. I pray God will reveal His Truth to you as you seek it earnestly as I know you are doing. Blessings to you and your family! I promise I won't write anything else.

Sarah said...

Oh Jackie, please do not feel that you have offended me in any way! I do see your heart here! I have no response really to the issue of being a 'reprobate' as I haven't studied this in my Bible as yet...but I'm sure that when I do God will reveal His truth to me.

I am glad that you shared your opinion here and I do want my blog to be a place where ladies can discuss Bible teachings and how we also may differ in our understanding of words or particular teachings! I would hate for you to think that you couldn't comment here, as I do look forward to hearing from you!

In regard to my comment, I should mention that transsexuals now want to be called transgenders. I feel sad for the children that will be adopted by them or by a sodomite that after adopting children decides to have transsexual surgeries. I,also, feel sad for the children of a parent who decides they are going to live a sodomite or transsexual lifestyle after being in a traditional marriage. I heard Michael Reagan,son of Ronald Reagan(the first divorced-and remarried- President), say he is pro-homosexual/lesbian adoptions but he didn't mention transsexuals. The word transgender does sound and look better than the word transsexual sounds and looks. "Transgender" isn't in our 1985 dictionary but "transsexual" is.

What more does this wonderful pastor teach?

* A woman should not be allowed to vote.

* A woman should not wear pants.

* A child should be spanked. If you don't spank your child, then you hate your child. Spanking equals love.

* A woman should be silent in church.

* A woman has one role, which is the role as a house-wife.

Sarah said...

Becca Boo, these are ALL biblical concepts! I'm glad for preachers like Pastor Anderson! :)

Becca Boo said...

Okay, I don't mind you believing in all these things concerning women, since you are a grown-up and if you like the masochistic life-style then so be it. BUT please do not tell me you hit your children or allow your husband to do so. That's just awful and no good parenting whatsoever.

Spanking is punishment and not discipline. Period.
