Temple Baptist Church - 4-18-20182 Peter 2:6-9Introduction:¬ A.¬ We have now looked¬ at the first step to a reprobate mind,¬ Romans 1:21-22:¬ ‚ÄúBecause that, when they knew God, they glorified¬ him¬ not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.¬ ¬ Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.‚Ä̬ False teachers began with the angels in heaven.¬ (verse 4)B.¬ We looked¬ at the second step to a reprobate mind last week,¬ Romans 1:25:¬ ‚ÄúWho changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.‚Ä̬ We tied this verse with Noah's Day, as the sons of God rejected the old paths of their fathers and began to dishonor their bodies through adultery and fornication with the daughters of men.C.¬ Tonight, I want to look¬ at the third step to a reprobate mind,¬ Romans 1:28: ‚ÄúAnd even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.‚Ä̬ ¬ Though sodomy is not the result of a reprobate mine, it certain leads to one if not repented of.D.¬ Sodomy in the five cities¬ of the plains was a result of all three steps.1.¬ Adam's Day¬ was a pure day until the false teaching of the serpent beguiled Eve.¬ I find not other problems with sinfulness.2.¬ Noah's Day¬ was characterized by the imaginations of evil minds.¬ ¬ Luke 17:26-27¬ And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. ¬ (27)¬ They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.3.¬ Lot's Day¬ was an extension of Adam and Noah's Day.¬ ¬ Luke 17:28-30¬ Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; ¬ (29)¬ But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. ¬ (30)¬ Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.E.¬ Notice both the similarities¬ and progression of sin.¬ Adam's Day was characterized by hard work and faithfulness, Noah's Day was characterized by sexual perversion.¬ Lot's Day was characterized by idleness, fulness of bread, haughtiness, and abomination.Ezekiel 16:49-50¬ Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. ¬ (50)¬ And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.F.¬ Sodom and Gomorrah¬ were noted mainly for the sin of sodomy.¬ We are faced with the same sinfulness in our society so I will make a few biblical statements and then move on.1.¬ Sodomy is a sin, not an alternate lifestyle ‚Äď 1 Corinthians 6:9-10¬ ¬ Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,¬ Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.¬ 2.¬ Sodomy is a learned behavior, not an inherent one - Romans 1:26-27¬ ¬ For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:¬ And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.3.¬ Sodomy is widespread both young and old - Genesis 19:4¬ ¬ But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:4.¬ Sodomy is still an abomination in the sight of God¬ -¬ Leviticus 20:13¬ If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.Genesis 13:13¬ But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.Genesis 18:20¬ And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;5.¬ Sodomy still brings about the judgment of God - Luke 17:28-30¬ Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;¬ But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.¬ Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.a)¬ God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of their sin - Genesis 19:5¬ And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.b)¬ God allowed the tribe of Benjamin to be destroyed because of sodomy - Judges 19:22¬ ¬ Now as they were making their hearts merry, behold, the men of the city, certain sons of Belial, beset the house round about, and beat at the door, and spake to the master of the house, the old man, saying, Bring forth the man that came into thine house, that we may know him.1.¬ Sodom's Sin.a.¬ Idleness and Prosperity - Ezekiel 16:49¬ Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.b.¬ Unbridled Lust - Jude 7¬ Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner,¬ giving themselves over¬ to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.c. Rejection of God - Romans 1:26-27¬ For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:¬ And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.2.¬ Sodom's Curse.a.¬ They Defile The Land - 1 Kings 14:24¬ And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.1)¬ They were driven out of the land - 1 Kings 15:12¬ And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.¬ ¬ (today they are exalting their lifestyle in America)1 Kings 22:46¬ And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.2)¬ They destroyed their houses - 2 Kings 23:7¬ And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.¬ ¬ (today they are allowing them to live together in peace)3)¬ They were spiritually rejected - Deuteronomy 23:17¬ There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.¬ ¬ (today they are ordaining them)b.¬ They Destroy The People-¬ Leviticus 20:13¬ If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination:¬ they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.¬ ¬ (Aids)c.¬ They Will Go To Hell - 1 Corinthians 6:9¬ ¬ Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers,¬ nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,1 Timothy 1:9-10¬ Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,¬ For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;3.¬ Sodom's Cure.1 Corinthians 6:11¬ And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.¬ ¬ (Salvation cures the sin of sodomy.¬ The sodomite is no longer a sodomite.)4.¬ Sodom's Caution.Jude 7¬ Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.¬ ¬ (God does and will always condemn and judge such sinfulness which will result in a reprobate mind.)
Temple Baptist Church - 3-25-2018 - Homecoming Service1 Corinthians 13:1-13Introduction:A.¬ 31 years ago,¬ God did a wonderful thing for us here at Temple Baptist Church.¬ 1.¬ God brought a young family¬ to the little town of Laurens, SC.¬ A relatively young man with no pastoral experience but a vast experience in service and church problems.¬ A background that tempered his ministry to a hurting people.2.¬ This past Thursday, March 22nd, marked that eventful day.¬ With just a handful of people that attended Temple Baptist Church that Sunday, God started something extraordinary.¬ That little church had struggled over the years and was ripe for the beginning of a new era.¬ 3.¬ What we enjoy here this morning¬ is a result of what happened that day and over the past 31 years.¬ Many have come and gone over the years but there has always been a strong nucleus of people that remained.¬ It has been both our joy and our life to be your pastor's family!B.¬ I have changed topics¬ several times this week as we approach Resurrection Sunday next weekend.¬ Saturday morning, God settled my heart on this topic: ‚ÄúThe Love That Binds.‚ÄĚC.¬ As we read this great chapter, we find the word ‚Äúcharity.‚Ä̬ I want to look at it for a few minutes before we go back and enjoy the fellowship and much anticipated meal of Homecoming Day.D.¬ The meaning of Charity.¬ Many of the new perversions called ‚Äúbibles‚ÄĚ have changed the word to ‚Äúlove.‚Ä̬ This is a cardinal mistake!¬ The word ‚Äúlove‚ÄĚ is an ‚Äúumbrella‚ÄĚ that covers many kinds of love.¬ Charity is a peculiar love.¬ It is the love of the brotherhood.¬ 1 Thessalonians 4:9¬ But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.1.¬ Many churches¬ are measured by their highly educated, articulate preachers.¬ Make a beautiful, articulate speech, impress the people but‚ÄĒwithout charity‚ÄĒyour message is just another hollow sound.2.¬ Many churches¬ are measured by their social standing.¬ Have all the doctors, lawyers, etc. that you want and be ‚Äúnothing.‚Ä̬ A local church is not a social club.3.¬ Many churches¬ are measured by their beautiful buildings.¬ When I was stationed in Germany, I saw the beautiful architecture of 500 plus year old churches that are now just that, beautiful architecture.¬ A local church is not an ornate building but a ‚Äúcalled out assembly of saints‚ÄĚ to worship.4.¬ Many churches¬ are measured by the size of their membership.¬ The Bible is clear on the direction of the ‚Äúmany‚ÄĚ and the ‚Äúfew.‚Ä̬ Most of the time, the many are headed in the wrong direction because they are popular with this world.¬ A local church is measured in quality, not quantity.E.¬ You can have all¬ of these things and become a ‚Äúsounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal‚ÄĚ and be ‚Äúnothing‚ÄĚ in the sight of God.¬ John 13:35¬ By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.1 John 4:7-12¬ Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. ¬ (8)¬ He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. ¬ (9)¬ In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. ¬ (10)¬ Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. ¬ (11)¬ Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. ¬ (12)¬ No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.1.¬ Charity must be a universal love of the brethren.¬ Verses 1-3.¬ ¬ It loves all and loves all equally.a.¬ Charity has nothing¬ to do with social status.b.¬ Charity has nothing¬ to do with financial clout.c.¬ Charity has nothing¬ to do with ethnicity.d.¬ Charity has nothing¬ to do with gender.e.¬ Charity has nothing¬ to do with faithfulness.e.¬ Charity is equal¬ from the pulpit to the pew.¬ From the pew to the pulpit.¬ From the back pew to the front pew.¬ 2.¬ Charity is a binding love of the brethren.¬ Verses 4-7.¬ It is what holds the local church together.a.¬ ¬ Charity¬ is longsuffering.b.¬ Charity is kind.c.¬ Charity is unselfish.d.¬ Charity behaves itself.e.¬ Charity is overlooking.f.¬ Charity hates evil but not the sinner.g.¬ Charity loves in truth.3.¬ Charity is an unfailing love of the brethren.¬ Verses 8-13.¬ Times change but biblical charity endures.a.¬ Paul names¬ three remaining gifts: faith, hope and charity.b.¬ Our faith¬ and our hope are anchored in the greatest of the three, Charity.4.¬ We do not know what the future holds for either our church or our membership.¬ a.¬ We have endured¬ the enemy of death.b.¬ We have endured¬ the enemy of sinfulness.c.¬ We have endured¬ the enemy of division.d.¬ But through it all,¬ because of our love for each other, we have and will continue to endure!
