Your View: Did, does and will

Romans 10:13-15 shows us that God did, does and will send messengers like Phil Robertson, of “Duck Dynasty.” Without preachers, the Bible tells us in verse 14, “How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?”

If one turns this verse around and reads it backward, we could read the verse this way: No preacher sent, no truth heard, no truth believed or responded to. Truth responds to who he will serve, not whosoever will.

In the past several weeks we had two messages: Phil Robertson saying biblical principles. and Miley Cyrus, what principles?

Will it be tolerance or conviction? With 2 billion Christians in the world, I am saying conviction has a pretty good chance. If it is tolerance, there’s a lot of preachers on the way.
