I am new to Soundcloud.com and I am testing its proficiencies by uploading a 40-minute sermon. This is the latest from our pulpit at Dorongan-Punta United Methodist Church. Since our congregation is half-Ilocano-and-half-Pangasinan tounged, we preach in Filipino (although there were few Pangasinan throws here.) This was on 1 Peter 2:18-25:
18 Mga alipin, magpasakop kayo sa mga nagmamay-ari sa inyo at igalang ninyo sila, hindi lamang ang mababait kundi pati ang malulupit, 19 sapagkat kapuri-puri ang nagtitiis ng parusa kahit walang kasalanan, bilang pagsang-ayon sa kalooban ng Diyos. 20 Maipagmamalaki ba ang magtiis ng parusa kung ito ay dahil sa paggawa ng masama? Hindi! Ngunit kung magtiis kayo ng hirap sa kabila ng paggawa ninyo ng mabuti, pagpapalain kayo ng Diyos. 21 Ang pagtitiis ng hirap ay bahagi ng pagkatawag sa inyo ng Diyos, sapagkat nang si Cristo ay magtiis para sa inyo, binigyan niya kayo ng isang halimbawang dapat tularan. 22 Hindi siya gumawa ng anumang kasalanan, o nagsinungaling kailanman. 23 Nang siya'y insultuhin, hindi siya gumanti. Nang siya'y pahirapan, hindi siya nagbanta; sa halip, ipinaubaya niya ang lahat sa Diyos na makatarungan kung humatol. 24 Sa kanyang pagkamatay sa krus, pinasan niya ang bigat ng ating mga kasalanan upang tayo'y mamatay na sa kasalanan at mamuhay ayon sa kalooban ng Diyos. Kayo'y pinagaling na sa pamamagitan ng kanyang mga sugat. 25 Sapagkat kayo ay tulad ng mga tupang naliligaw, ngunit ngayon kayo'y nanumbalik na upang sumunod sa Pastol at Tagapangalaga ng inyong mga kaluluwa.

If this has ministered to you, please let me know. Thanks..

Free Christian MP3s

I have compiled some of the most recent Christian MP3s that I have downloaded (legally). All were (and still are) given away at Worship Matters, home of worship leading resources by Bob Kauflin. If you want to download the MP3s, just look for the downward arrow found at the right of each player.






==================================================

Lead on, O King Eternal
(Ernest W. Shurtleff and Ryan Foglesong)


Lead on, O King Eternal, the day of march has come;
Henceforth in fields of conquest Thy tents shall be our home
Through days if preparation Thy grace has made us strong;
And now, O King Eternal, we lift our battle song

So lead on, lead on, King of Heaven my light and my salvation
Your faithfulness endures
O lead on, lead us to Your Kingdom. Through joy or tribulation
We follow You, we follow You alone.

Lead on, O King Eternal, 'til sin's fierce war shall cease
And holiness shall whisper The sweet amen of peace.
For not with swords loud clashing, nor roll of stirring drums
With deeds of loving mercy the heavenly Kingdom comes.

Lead on, O King Eternal, we follow, not with fears,
For gladness breaks the morning where 'er Thy face appears
Thy cross is lifted o'er us, we journey in its light;
The crown awaits the conquest; Lead on, O God of might!

==================================================

Grace is Not Earned
(Kate Simmonds)


Grace is not earned, nor deserved,
It is a gift from God.
Saved by Your mercy alone,
Rescued by Your great love.
Grace is the heart of the Father,
Grace is the gift of the Son,
Grace is the work of the Spirit,
Revealing the wonder of an amazing God.

You know how often I fail
And all that I can't undo,
Stains I've no means to erase,
How can I stand before You?
Christ takes the cross on His shoulders,
Steadfast to Calvary's hill,
Leaving my sin in the grave
He rises, the conquering Son,
Such amazing love!

Raised by Your life, now in Christ,
Chosen and dearly loved,
I am now seen through Your eyes:
Righteous through Jesus' blood!
Ransomed, restored and forgiven,
My sins are remembered no more!
Though still I'll stumble, You'll keep me.
By grace, I'll continue on in unending love!

Oh the mercy, oh the mercy of our God, of our God. (repeat)

==================================================

Completely Done
(Jonathan Baird, Ryan Baird, and Rich Gunderlock)


What reason have I to doubt
Why would I dwell in fear
When all I have known is grace
My future in Christ is clear

My sins have been paid in full
There's no condemnation here
I live in the good of this
My Father has brought me near
I'm leaving my fears behind me now

The old is gone, the new has come
What You complete is completely done
We're heirs with Christ, the victory won
What You complete is completely done

I don't know what lies ahead
What if I fail again
You are my confidence
You'll keep me to the end
I'm leaving my fears behind me now

==================================================

We Belong to the Day
(Michael Morrow)


We belong to the day
To the day that is to come
When the night falls away
And our Saviour will return
For the glory of the King is in our hearts
On that day we will be seen for what we are

We belong to the day
Let us journey in the light
Put on faith, put on love
As our armour for the fight
And the promise of salvation in our eyes
On that day the proud will fall, the faithful rise

CH: Strong as a mighty rock
Our refuge in the coming wrath
The heart of the bride belongs to Jesus, Jesus
The earth in its turning stops
To marvel at the Son of God
And all of that day belongs to Jesus, Jesus

We belong to the day
We were bought with Jesus' blood
Soon he comes as the judge
In the power of his word
We must tell of his salvation while we wait
For the day when Jesus comes will be too late

BR: Oh, if ten thousand years go by we will wait
Let us tell of his great love, he will come
For his patience means salvation!

==================================================

Praise the Lord
(Doug Plank and Bob Kauflin)


Praise the Lord, Oh praise His name
From the heights of heav'n He reigns
Seated in the highest place
Surrounded by unending praise

Praise Him for His mighty deeds
Awesome in His majesty
Praise Him now with trumpet sound
Lift your voice and dance around

Everything that has breath, praise the Lord
Everything that's in us, praise Him
Everything that has breath, praise the Lord

Praise the Lord with instruments
Praise Him for His excellence
Look at what He's done for us
Bore our sins upon the cross

Praise the Lord with all you are
Mind and soul and will and heart
From His hand comes everything
He alone is God and King

Free Book: Refuting Evolution 2

Posted by Bernard Rosario On 6:30 AM 0 comments




The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.
~ 1 Timothy 1:5

“Why Do You Believe What You Believe?” is the theme for the second council meeting of the young people here at our district. It is enthusing to learn that United Methodist youths are recapturing interests for Christian apologetics. It is, therefore, timely to give away an apologetic book. Jonathan Sarfati “adroitly makes light of the inaccuracies and fallacies of evolutionary theory, and offers sound creationist interpretation of the facts” in his Refuting Evolution 2.

Take a look at its table of contents:

Unit 1. Claim: Evolution is Science
Evolutionists insist that evolutionary theory is science, and claim that creationism is religion.
Chapter 1: Argument: Creationism is religion, not science
Chapter 2: Argument: Evolution is compatible with Christian religion
Chapter 3: Argument: Evolution is true science, not ‘just a theory’
Unit 2. Claim: Evolution is well supported by the evidence
Evolutionists claim that they have found abundant, observable evidence of evolution.
Chapter 4: Argument: Natural selection leads to speciation
Chapter 5: Argument: Some mutations are beneficial
Chapter 6: Argument: Common design points to common ancestry
Chapter 7: Argument: ‘Bad design’ is evidence of leftovers from evolution
Chapter 8: Argument: The fossil record supports evolution
Unit 3. Claim: ‘Problems’ with evolution are illusory
Evolutionists argue that there are reasonable theories for even the biggest ‘surprises’ of evolution.
Chapter 9: Argument: Probability of evolution
Chapter 10: Argument: ‘Irreducible complexity’
Chapter 11: Argument: Evolution of sex
Chapter 12: Argument: Evolution of mankind
Appendix 1: Common arguments for evolution that have been rejected
Appendix 2: Common arguments for creation that should not be used
