I know these excuses, because hello, I use them all the time. But the Great Commission of the church is to 'Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all nations.' That was a commandment from Jesus, not a 'suggestion'. The Gospel needs to be preached because there is no other way for men to be saved.
He was wise enough to know that he had done wrong. Wise enough to know that God was upset with him, and that the Holy Spirit was convicting him of his wrong desires. But he wasn't mature enough to know what to do. His constant repenting for his wrong wasn't changing his desire to stop his actions.
Hi Everyone Last Sunday the Pastor was unavailable, so asked me if I could do the teaching that morning. I was a bit hesitant to say yes, as I hadn't taught for over 10 years! He said I could teach on whatever I wanted (brave man!). So I decided to expand on the post Whom Shall I Fear? I wrote last year. If you want to listen, you can find the message here. Please note that I was extremely nervous! I have not listened to the recording, as I don't like the sound of my own recorded voice. Enjoy! Blessings.
As a Christian, the first thing I need to ask myself is this: "Is God in control of my country, or not?" Obviously the answer would be a resounding 'Yes!', but how far are we willing to stretch it?
