In this audio-blog, Pastor Geoff completes a series of messages dealing with gender, identity, and marriage matters.
And in this final segment, he deals with salvation -- what it is, why it's needed, and how it is the nucleus of every segment of theology.
Christians must be armed with God's Word, knowledgeable of God's Gospel, and speaking the truth in love with our neighbors. We must proclaim Christ!
Listen to this podcast, know the gospel, trust in Christ alone, and speak the truth in love in a culture & in a generation where confusion abounds. Let Christ's truth thunder through the streets in our land!
Pastor Geoff deals with the common phrase used by many in our day that they are "Gay-Christians" -- often they say they are celibate and don't 'act out.' But what does the Bible say? How can we have clarity about this phrase that many identify themselves as, namely, as being a 'Gay-Christian"?
In this, Pastor Geoff provides 7 Reasons Why This Is Utterly Impossible. It's absolutely impossible to be a 'Gay-Christian'. Here's why...
It Blasphemes the Character of God.
It Contradicts the Clarity of Scripture.
It Ignores the Severity of Hell.
It Disregards the Glory of Regeneration
It Belittles the Power of Grace
It Shames the Name of Christ
It Destroys the Witness to the Lost
"What the Bible Says About Homosexuality & to the LGBT Movement"
Pastor Geoff preaches the Word of God from Romans 1:18-32 and shows what the Bible says about the topic of homosexuality.
1. God is known.
2. God is just.
3. God is patient.
This sermon gives clarity from God's sufficient Word regarding homosexuality, transgenderism, and various sexual deviancies. God's gospel is sufficient and able to convert the heart, cleanse the conscience, and change a life.
May God powerfully work through His Word for the saving and sanctifying of many. May God equip us as His people so that we would speak confidently, courageously and with conviction regarding these matters.
"What To Say To a 'Same-Sex-Attracted-Christian'?"
In this podcast, Pastor Geoff pleads for a biblical understanding of the doctrine of regeneration -- the new birth, a sovereign, powerful work of God -- from Ezekiel 11:19-20. A SSA (same sex attracted) person who professes to be a Christian needs to be instructed on the reality of regeneration -- it's not only a change of heart, it's a full change of one's nature. Regeneration is a complete, total work of God. It not only saves a soul from hell, but it changes the desires, the affections, the ambitions, the longings here and now. For someone to say I'm SSA and it's just my cross to bear or my lot in life is hopeless and it leads one to despair. But the glory of the new birth, biblically and exegetically, is that God changes the soul and He changes the nature. It's like a new Genesis-one-like 'new creation.' Radical transformation. So we must reject the notion that Christians can be SSA. We need to uphold, maintain and glory in the sovereign, powerful, soul-transforming and heart-transforming work of regeneration, the new birth.
Pastor Geoff Kirkland provides the answer to a simple question: "why do so many cheer and champion LGBT/Pride Month?
4. Future (long way to go) (discrimination ideas)
So how do we as evangelical Christians respond to these and lovingly, biblically, and winsomely proclaim the saving gospel of Jesus Christ as we unashamedly and courageously speak the Truth.
"Why Homosexuality Is Sinful: It Attempts, Pridefully, to 'Play God'"
Pastor Geoff provides another reason why homosexuality (same-sex marriage) is sinful: because those who engage in this lifestyle, promote same-sex marriage, and those who condone it, attempt to play God by defining God's institution of marriage.
"Why Homosexuality Is Sinful: It Defies God's Created Design"
In this podcast, Pastor Geoff teaches on: why homosexuals and “Gay-Christians” are deceived and need a Savior:
1 Timothy 1 provides clarity and help:
They must repent and come to Christ for salvation...
B/c of Their Depravity
B/c of Their Sin
B/c of Their Rebellion
B/c of Their Patterns (of sin)
B/c of Their Unholiness
B/c of Their Choice
B/c of Their Impenitence
"Why We Must Preach Truth Regarding Eternal Danger of Homosexuality & Gay-Christians"
WHY WE MUST PREACH WHAT *GOD* SAYS REGARDING THE SIN & ETERNAL DANGER OF THE SIN OF HOMOSEXUALITY & SAME-SEX ATTRACTION:
We must preach the truth for the following reasons...
Because GOD HAS SPOKEN
Because HELL IS HOT
Because SALVATION IS AVAILABLE
Because REGENERATION IS SUPERNATURAL
Because SINNERS NEED TRUTH
Because HOLINESS IS NECESSARY
Because DECEPTION IS RAMPANT
Because PLEASING GOD IS PRIORITY
