Sermon 62 – WHO’S GETTING THE BETTER DEAL?

Often when I counsel folk I might ask … who have you got an irritation with? Sometimes they know but quite often they have no feelings at all against people.

Here are my thoughts …

Sermon 46 – The RIGHTNESS Christian

Why do we do what’s right?

Fear of getting into trouble, looking good in the eyes of others, feeling good, avoiding put-down, avoiding correction and punishment, to be liked, and to gain position are the general reasons for us trying to do what’s right.

“Don’t tell me what to do” is really the real you

Our motivation for doing right is almost always selfish. The real subtle motive for doing right is the love of MYSELF and this is hidden in the crevices of our heart and, if squeezed, is expressed as Read the rest of this entry »

Sermon 39 – The CARNAL MIND vs. the MIND of CHRIST

The carnal mind is enmity against God because it is not subject to the law of God, and can never be  Romans 8:7

Sermon 24 – IN TWO MINDS

In Genesis chapter 3, Eve succumbed to the temptation to elevate her position above what God allocated to her. Once she took the carrot she gained the knowledge that she was naked, then in fear, hid from God, then lied about why, then blamed the serpent, whilst at the same time Adam blamed God for giving him the woman, and then blamed the woman for misleading him.

The pattern of sin was set from the beginning,

Sermon 10 – It’s a CONTRADICTION

If a child says to their father “I appreciate what you’ve done for me”, and then chooses to truant from school, speaks rudely to their mother, or practices sexual promiscuity behind the parent’s back, that’s a contradiction. How can you say you appreciate the parent and at the same time disrespect and defame the parent’s principles or your father’s wife?

Sermon 4 – THE UNSAVED CHRISTIAN

Q. Is there such a thing as a Christian who isn’t saved?

The church teaches ‘once saved always saved’, but is that true? It’s true if you’re saved; but what if you’re not really saved?

The parable of the 5 foolish virgins in Matthew 25 strongly suggests that it’s possible to lose the Holy Spirit, and confirms that you can’t get the Spirit from someone else. You alone are responsible for the Spirit to stay in you.
