Pastor Geoff continues the verse by verse exposition through 2 John and teaches on the many deceivers that have gone out into the world who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh.
Who are these false teachers? What do they teach? What are false teachings today? What must we do? And how can we be on guard? How do we distinguish a false teacher?
Pastor Geoff preaches 2 John 9a and shows what the meaning is for those who "go too far" beyond the teaching of Christ. And then pastor Geoff surveys Scripture and asks and answers the following questions:
-Is the Scripture sufficient?
-Is the Bible closed?
-Is God still speaking and doing miracles?
-What about those who claim to have dreams, visions, and revelations of Jesus?
-Is it really all that important?
May the Lord work through the clarity of His all-sufficient Word to guide and lead us into truth. May we not go beyond the teaching of Christ!
"Beware of False Conversion! Some Marks of a False Convert"
Pastor Geoff continues the verse-by-verse exposition of the Gospel of Luke and paints a full picture of this betrayal-event. All four gospels are brought together and harmonized in this sermon.
Judas is the prime example of a false disciple. What a tragedy!
What a Savior -- the Light of the world -- rejected by the world but come to seek and save that which was lost!
Pastor Geoff open air preaches at the St Louis Metrolink station at the hospital & the medical centers and calls people to beware of false conversion. Judas serves as the perfect example of a false convert!
Guard! Beware! Examine yourself to see if you are really in the faith!
Pastor Geoff provides some benefits for having a printed, paper bible that is open and on your lap at church (as opposed to using a tablet or digital device). This is merely pastoral advice and counsel for using a Bible.
it aids you in focusing in Scripture alone rather than the temptations a device may bring.
it prevents the endless distractions that could come with an electronic device (text/popup/reminder/internet)
it sets an example for the children/teens to have an open Bible
it serves in cross-reference study to have fingers in 2 or more scriptures to compare.
it helps you learn the order of the books of the Bible better.it familiarizes you with the text & with locating Scriptures for future reference.it may allow you to mark in your Bible a note or two or a cross reference.it contributes to the benefit of reading books (chapters) and not just reading clips/quotes (from a device)
it presents a kind of priority & seriousness as you carry and open and study your Bible.
it will not die if you use it constantly for 10+ hours. there's no battery life to the written text of the Bible.
"Benefits of the Friday Morning Men's Bible Study!"
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel during the busy lunch hour in downtown Clayton, MO. He preaches Romans 10:9-10 and speaks about how faith alone in Jesus Christ is all that is needed to be saved!
Listen to this gospel pleading on the streets inviting all to come & embrace a sufficient Savior!
In this sermon Pastor Geoff preaches Mark 3:31-35 -- being in the family of God
1. The natural family (31-32)
2. The spiritual family (33-35)
"Behold—Here Is Your God; The Knowledge of God Should Affect How You Live"
Pastor Geoff preaches his last sermon at CCC and teaches on the character of God. He provides nine attributes of God from this magnificent psalm and shows how the knowledge of who God is must impact the way we live our lives. He calls us to repent, believe in Christ, and live wholeheartedly for Him. Listen & apply this sermon.
"Behold Your Sovereign King and Sufficient Priest! Look, Respond, and Submit to Him!"
Geoff preaches Psalm 110 and heralds the truth of the Messiah's sovereignty and future Kingdom as well as His priestly nature. Geoff shows how this directly relates to our lives here and now and he calls the listeners to believe in Christ and be saved by this sufficient High Priest.
In this message, Pastor Geoff preaches the entire unit of Luke 3:1-18 and shows how John the Baptist came from God and preached an urgent — and necessary — message of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
Listen to the message of the forerunner of the Messiah. Listen to how serious he took sin. And yet notice how humble he was in that he pointed all attention to Christ, the Coming One!
"Behold the Man of Sorrows! Jesus Prophesies His Own Rejection!"
Pastor Geoff preaches on the sovereign reign of God and how true believers should stand in awe of Him, rejoice in Him, and live holy lives before Him. He concluded with an application illustrated by the way Hebrews 1 quotes Psalm 97. Listen and learn from Psalm 97.
