Audioverse.org – Great Resource for Spiritual Growth

Capture

 

If you have been craving sermons and are unsure where to go to find them, I can recommend audioverse.org.  This is a great site where you can type in any topic and there are sermons on them.  Obviously I can’t be certain all will be perfect as far as doctrine is concerned, however, there is a lot of Gold hidden there…

A few good sermons to get you started:
Dennis Priebe – The Real Gospel - An expose on the differences between the two gospels that are being preached in our churches.  Very important sermon.

Gabriel Arruda – testimony about how Gabriel was protected from the entertainment industry and came to work for God.  He does have things I don’t quite agree with relating to prophecy (nothing too crazy though!), however the testimony is very interesting.

Paul Volk – What the Experts Are Telling Us – Very interesting testimony about health.  Very practical message.

Also Dwayne Lemon, Eugine Prewitt have some interesting stuff (leave a comment if you can recommend any preachers or specific sermons on audioverse).

Also, if you have an iPhone or Android device, there is a great app that makes listening and downloading easier. (sadly no windows phone … hint, hint if you are reading this audible crew).

The Dragon Revealed – Disc 1 – The Dangers of Martial Arts

This is a very interesting project by the guys at little light about how martial arts can direct us away from God.  If you have been into martial arts, or still are, remember to keep an open mind.  This isn’t a production designed to set rules in stone about what you can and can’t do, but rather to warn you of potential danger.  Thanks heaps to the guys at little light for releasing the first 1h for free.  If you gain a blessing and wish to learn more, they will have a second part available in the next few months here for a very small contribution.

Latest Nutrition Science for 2014

There has been a significant amount of progress since Colin T Campbell and his colleges did the China Study (if you haven’t read the book, you should).  In the following video, Dr Michael Greger from Nutritionfacts.org takes us through nutrition science that has come to light over the last year.  As always the science seems to very strongly indicated that a plant based diet is the best way to avoid the leading causes of death.

Faith Comes By Hearing… Audio Bibles I recommend.

It is interesting that faith comes by hearing the word of God… This is in a spiritual sense, however for me the blessing I have gained from listening to the bible has been difficult to measure.  I personally am a rather poor reader, but I have found the bible comes alive when listening to it.

There are a number of very good audio bibles out there, I really like Alexander Scourby’s reading of the KJV (you can get it from the apple app store or the android marketplace or simply buy the mp3s to use on your computer or tablet www.scourby.com).

Lately I have been attempting to get my children more interested in learning the word.  Many point to other bible versions that have simpler wording… sadly, the distortion of the word in these versions tends to make this counter productive.  Thankfully there is another option.   I have found they seem to understand far more clearly the dramatization of the King James Bible found at www.bible.is.  This is a great site that has audio bibles in many many languages.    There are also apps on the Android and Apple stores.  The best part is, they are free.

Hell & Mr Fudge – Where do bad people go when they die?

hellandmrfudgeThe name is as odd as the doctrine it explores: Where do bad people go when they die? Or more to the point, where do unrepentant sinners go when they die… as opposed to repentant sinners?!

First here is the real guy, Edward Fudge, describing his belief on the doctrine of the immortality of the soul and hell.  It is quite a compelling set of arguments, and very worthwhile to anyone who wishes to get another perspective on the topic:

Nexthnmrfudge, here is the feature length movie called “Hell & Mr Fudge” that has been made about the story of Edward Fudge. It describes the struggle he went through as his town rejected his new found perspective on God and the bible.  Here is the movie if you wish to rent or buy it (video download).  It is likely to be one of the very few movies with substance that you will watch:
