Micah 3: The Whole Worship

thanks again to H.A Williams for his videography

 

The Whole Worship: Micah 2

Maybe I should cut Drew Brees a little more slack see the analysis below this worship service:

I’m not endorsing the Hayride but they have the videos of Drew Brees so you can judge for yourselves.

Unfortunately the word accept has replaced the word tolerate in the American lexicon.  Christians should indeed love their Lord, love their neighbors, and they should tolerate everyone.  But you cannot accept everyone in the sense that you endorse their beliefs.  Maybe I’m shaving the words of Drew Brees too close.  But he follows up with this one:

Introduction pt 2: Desire, Division, Divine Promise

Maybe I’ll get around to Micah this week!  Nope.  Oh the rich history of the Gospel come worship, listen, and by the Spirit grow!

1 Thessalonians 5 – Pop Quiz

1 Thessalonians 4:13 The Rapture?

John Darby popularized the idea of “The Secret Rapture” around 1878 it has grown explosively as the doctrine of the American Evangelical churches since that time.  I’m including some of my research for this sermon for your own study.  Here’s a great qoute from DL Moody:

Problems with the pre-tribulational view are highlighted by Baptist (and premillennial) theologian Dale Moody, who wrote: “Belief in a pre-tribulational rapture . . . contradicts all three chapters in the New Testament that mention the tribulation and the rapture together (Mark 13:24–27; Matt. 24:26–31; 2 Thess. 2:1–12). . . . The theory is so biblically bankrupt that the usual defense is made using three passages that do not even mention a tribulation (John 14:3; 1 Thess. 4:17; 1 Cor. 15:52). These are important passages, but they have not had one word to say about a pre-tribulational rapture. . . . Pre-tribulationism is biblically bankrupt and does not know it” (The Word of Truth, 556–7).

Many Christians hold different views on this matter – it should not divide the Church.  We can disagree on some things – the rapture or our views of it should not be considered an essential of the faith.
