The Dangers of Fornication

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“The Lexham Cultural Dictionary defines ‘Fornication’ this way, “the practice of engaging in immoral sexual activity, but especially that which is outside the bounds of a marriage covenant.” Its general meaning refers to ‘any’ and ‘every’ kind of sexual intercourse except between a husband and wife. In other words, any form of sexual activity outside of the marriage covenant is labeled as ‘fornication’ and therefore ‘immoral’ according to the Holy Bible. If you’re a Christian listening to this broadcast, you shouldn’t be engaging in or practicing fornication. If you are, then you’re leaving the door wide open for the devil to set up camp in your life (Eph 4:27). Few realize that when you make love to someone, you’re joining your very soul to that person. If sex is performed outside the sanctity of the marriage covenant, then you’re leaving yourself wide open to relentless spiritual.” – Pastor Carl

Stories of Healing

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“God is equipping the saints (that’s you), through the fivefold ministerial offices (Eph 4:11), so you will be ready when God asks you to move by faith. So let me begin now by sharing several real life testimonies of how God used me, when I first became ‘born again.’ The first testimony concerns the miraculous healing of cancer. I have a dear friend from Stafford, Texas called Dolores. Now I befriended this lady and her wonderful husband Roel, who’s a godly man, whilst living in Houston, Texas in the early 2000’s. Anyway when I mentioned in a previous broadcast of the time when I prayed for the lady with the brain tumor at a nearby food pantry, Dolores was by my side. She was volunteering that very same day and she’s a great woman of faith. Now during 2003, Roel’s sister Linda, was unfortunately diagnosed with Cancer of the lymph-nodes and she chose not to do chemotherapy. She was also a practicing Catholic but unfortunately her local priest was not willing to pray for her to receive healing or didn’t believe the Lord could move in that regard today. So that’s when myself and Dolores offered to pray for her.” – Pastor Carl

Should women be in ministry?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Gentlemen, it’s time to close your ears because we’re talking to the ladies today and more specifically about a woman’s role in the ministry. All joking aside, in truth gents you need to hear this broadcast too because we’re often the ones guilty of discriminating against women in ministry, so we need to perk up and listen intently to this message. Now some conservative denominations think women should just keep quiet in church and forget about the ministry altogether and they use two of the Apostle Paul’s statements to back this up; namely 1st Corinthians 14:34 and 1st Timothy 2:12. However, we must study scripture in context and in light of its Geographical and Historical setting, for accurate interpretation. Remember, ‘context determines meaning’ and we would be amiss to ignore these important and pertinent contexts when reading these controversial passages.” – Pastor Carl

Noah’s Flood

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Noah’s flood was real; hands down it was a fact, not a ‘story’ as many secularists often couch it. What you really believe that Pastor? I mean come on eight people get on a boat with a whole bunch of animals for 370 days, are you kidding me? Well, 1st Peter 3:20 reveals categorically that eight people did indeed board the ark and God’s word is true no matter what the critics might say. Yes friend, there are boats far larger and heavier than Noah’s Ark sailing the oceans today. They also take advantage of God’s ideal ‘length to breadth ratio’ of 6.5 times as long as wide, being the optimum choice for the buoyancy of vessels, as Noah’s ark demonstrated. Noah’s global flood was most assuredly an historical event and the fossil record ‘shouts’ and ‘screams’ of an archaic, cataclysmic and worldwide deluge. But believe it or not, there are even some Christians who don’t believe Noah’s flood was real either. So I’m going to clear up some of these doubts in this broadcast today.” – Pastor Carl

The love of God

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“If love is not evident in our lives then our relationship with God can be called into question because love is not only a ‘fruit of the Spirit,’ but a command also. Now let me read you another verse (1 Cor 13:13), “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” In the old King James Bible, they translated the word love as ‘charity,’ in this verse. If we think of ‘charity’ today, we think of goodwill; an act of benevolence toward someone else or a love for humanity as a whole. But in the Greek language, the word for charity in this specific verse; is ‘agape’ and it’s the same Greek word for ‘love’ in 1 John 4:8 also. Now this Greek word, ‘agape’ is a far richer word than we can conceive from the English language, because it’s talking about ‘the love of God the Father.’ It’s especially characterized by a willing forfeiture of rights or privileges on another person’s behalf. This love is self sacrificial and to be honest, it’s difficult to properly describe the vast love that God the Father has for humanity because it’s beyond our full comprehension. In order for me to effectively transmit the love of the Father to you, I’d like to start out by telling you a story about the ‘bridge master’ and his son.” – Pastor Carl
