Just Another Day in Corinth: ‘Pastor’ David Devereaux Preaching on Homosexuals in Church and Clergy…False Teaching in the Church

Desert Spring United Methodist Church – Summerlin is not teaching according to sound doctrine, so please be careful.  I say this with love and sadness.  This is the same thing that happened at Corinth.  Remember, the Bible warns us: “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but… Read More

Did the pharisees get rebuked because they obeyed Christ’s teaching or because they disregarded it? Obedience vs. legalism in churches today

“But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine.” (Titus 2:1) Mark 7 is just one of those chapters in the Bible that is simply fascinating.  Jesus was (and is) so witty how He knew just what to say and how to say it.  When He answers questions with questions, it is totally mind-boggling (Matthew 21:24).  Jesus, being one with God, is truly and infinitely intelligent and knows just what to say to every single person given the situation.  He speaks with mercy and compassion to His sheep (and potential sheep)… Read More

Is ‘Obedience’ the Same as ‘Works’?

Greek for works:  ergōn http://concordances.org/greek/2041.htm Greek for obey or keep:  peitharcheó, hupakouó, phulassó, etc. http://concordances.org/greek/3980.htm http://concordances.org/greek/5219.htm http://concordances.org/greek/5218.htm http://concordances.org/greek/5442.htm Greek for do, i.e., ‘be a doer’: poiétés http://concordances.org/greek/4163.htm (These lists are not complete, but will give you an idea). ——- God’s commands are not burdensome.  When we love someone as a Father it is not a task to obey at all. When many people think of the word “obey” they think bad thoughts.  But don’t you want your children to obey you?  When children obey us, they show by their listening and doing that they love us.  Did you… Read More

How Important is the Bible, Really? Are All of Christ’s Words Important?

 “Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:19  “Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who built his house upon a rock…” Matthew 7 “My tongue shall speak of your word: for all your commandments are righteousness.” Psalm 119:172 “Making the word of God of no effect through your… Read More

David Wilkerson sermon on John 8: Counterfeit Christians and loving the Word of God and sound doctrine

John 8 New King James Version (NKJV) 8 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2 Now early[a] in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them. 3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, 4 they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught[b] in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses, in the law, commanded[c] us that such should be stoned.[d] But what do You say?”[e] 6 This they said, testing Him, that… Read More

What does the Bible say about growing in knowledge vs. being simple? Are Christians to seek knowledge

Proverbs 23:23 Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding. Proverbs 1 20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.24… Read More
