Sermon 61 – RESPONSIBILITY is a DIRTY WORD

When I was a young boy my older brother used to tease me incessantly. He’d run away from me on the way to school and leave me sitting in the gutter crying. He’d never let me play with his friends and he’d wrestle with me and pin my arms to the ground with his knees until I cried for mercy. He’d go out of his way to make sure

Sermon 55 – I’M NOT THE SINNER, YOU ARE!

A young man from our fellowship lived with my family for a number of years. He was well liked, had a gentle nature, was amiable, helpful and friendly and fitted in very well. His main attribute was the capacity to project “coolness”; nothing seemed to fluster him. One day my son returned to live with us and everything changed. Read the rest of this entry »

Sermon 13 – The CANCER of ENVY

In the Greek the meaning of envy is …

Envy = pain felt and malignity conceived at the sight of someone else’s excellence or happiness. Envy can degenerate into a desire to make war upon the beneficiary, and thus to trouble their good and diminish it.

James 4:5 tells us that the spirit in us lusts to envy. That is, we are born with the inherent trait to want the best for ourselves in preference to what’s best for others. God defines this inherent characteristic as pride, and regards it as the top level of sin. There’s nothing you can do about the fact that you are born with sin, but there is a solution to your sin.

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.
