sermonette: The Times They Are a-Changin'
Given 16-Jul-16; Sermon #1332s; 19 minutes
Bob Dylan's lyrics in "The Times They Are A-changin'" seem prescient, considering that within a few years of Herbert Armstrong's death, destructive heresies were imported into our previous fellowship by false teachers and ministers. Paul warned Timothy of perilous times to come about at the end of the age, when the character traits of individuals would become predominantly selfish, unforgiving, and unable to control their own impulses. Sadly, the mindset of society has begun to infiltrate the church, causing some of us to leave our first love by compromising the Sabbath and falling into the Commandment-breaking world. God's called-out ones need to wake up and strengthen those things which remain, yielding to God's sovereignty, rejecting the ruler of this world, Satan.
