Ken-Paynter/The-Biblical-God.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: The Biblical God

Speaker: Ken Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 15 December 2019

Topic Groups: GOD, APOLOGETICS, FALSE RELIGION

Sermon synopsis: God’s Word tells us that believing in the real true God of the Bible is not enough to secure Salvation, let alone believing in some false god, or some non existent god, that is just the figment of your imagination.

James 2:19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that, and shudder.



Ken-Paynter/False-prophets-and-fake-Christianity.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: False prophets and fake Christianity

Speaker: Ken Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 10 March 2019

Topic Groups: HERESY, FALSE RELIGION, SOUND DOCTRINE

Sermon synopsis: Matthew 24:24 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

South Africa has in recent months seen an increase in pastors and prophets who claimed they could heal or instantly create wealth for congregants using illegal means. The rogue churches have been widely criticized for robbing the poor and vulnerable while church leaders lived in luxury. Ashoms, a Nigerian national, said some of his fellow countrymen were guilty of using religion to make money in South Africa. I know some of them do that and I do tell them. We have seen the great commercialization of Christianity, where congregants have pay for a prayer, water, oil. So they merchandise everything in churches, that is business and nothing else.


Gavin-Paynter/CAN-THE-STARS-BE-USED-TO-TELL-THE-FUTURE.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: CAN THE STARS BE USED TO TELL THE FUTURE

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 21 September 2018

Topic Groups: ASTROLOGY, FALSE RELIGION, OCCULT

Sermon synopsis: What does the Bible say about astrology, the zodiac and divination in general? What do we make of the Magi who saw Jesus' star in the East? Can the stars be used to foretell the future, or is this to be avoided - together with the other forbidden occult practices?

Gen 1:14 “And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years.”

Some have taken the above verse to indicate a tacit approval of astrology in Scripture. Others assert that while modern astrology is a corruption of something originally good, God has written the gospel story in the zodiac.


Gavin-Paynter/The-purpose-of-suffering-Part2a.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: The purpose of suffering - Part 2a

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 27 November 2017

Topic Groups: SUFFERING, PERSECUTION, FALSE RELIGION

Sermon synopsis: Buddhism sees suffering as inevitable and without purpose. To escape it, we must cease to exist.

In contrast, Christianity sees suffering as inevitable, but as serving a divine purpose.

1) Suffering is used by God as a form of discipline.
2) Sometimes suffering enables us to be used as a vessel for God’s glory.
3) Suffering may be a test of our integrity.
4) Trials refine our faith.
5) God uses suffering to develop our character.


Gavin-Paynter/Do-Muslims-worship-the-same-God-as-Christians-Part4.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Do Muslims worship the same God as Christians - Part 4- The Bible vs the Quran and Hadith

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 26 July 2015

Topic Groups: ISLAM, FALSE RELIGION, APOLOGETICS

Sermon synopsis: The Bible consists of 66 individual books, 39 books in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament. The books are each divided into chapters (1,189 chapters altogether). The Quran contains 114 Suras (chapters) each referred to by either its sequential number or by its unique name. The Quran (about 78,000 words) is about ten times shorter than the Bible (about 780,000 words).

The Bible with some 40 authors, mainly Jewish, was written over a period of the middle 2,000 years of human history. The compilation of the written Quran (as opposed to the recited Quran) spanned several decades. It was a record of the revelations Muhammad received over the course of 23 years in the 7th Century AD. After Muhammad’s death it was codified into a single written Arabic version.


Gavin-Paynter/False-gods.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: False gods

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 19 April 2015

Topic Groups: EXODUS, PROPHECY, FALSE RELIGION

Sermon synopsis: Have you ever thought that the ten plagues that God poured out in judgement on Egypt seemed rather arbitrary? Why use frogs, a bloody river, flies and locusts? The Bible gives two clues as to the answer.
- Pharaoh boldly asserts, “Who is the LORD, that I should obey him and let Israel go?” (Ex 5:2).
- God speaks of executing judgment on all the gods of Egypt.
Ex 12:12 “On that same night I will pass through Egypt … and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the LORD.”

So Pharaoh won’t listen to Moses and felt no compulsion to obey God’s commands because:
- He claimed not to know God and thus felt that he was not subject to his authority. He did not acknowledge that God had any sovereignty over his life.
- He was trusting in the false gods of Egypt along with their priests and magicians and submitted only to their authority.
So the showdown between Moses and Pharaoh becomes a “battle of the gods” and results in ten very specific plagues, not arbitrary in any sense.


Gavin-Paynter/Do-Muslims-worship-the-same-God-as-Christians-Part3.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Do Muslims worship the same God as Christians - Part 3 - Jesus and Muhammad

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 7 December 2014

Topic Groups: ISLAM, FALSE RELIGION, APOLOGETICS

Sermon synopsis: Islam’s Jesus is not the same as Christianity’s Jesus. He was not God’s Son, never died on the cross, was never resurrected and was just a prophet in the same fashion as Moses and Abraham.

The Jesus of the Bible proclaimed himself to be both “The Son of Man” and “The Son of God”. He commanded his apostles to proclaim his death and resurrection and to teach that he was the only way to the Father.

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”



Gavin-Paynter/Islam-and-Christianity_Part2_Infidels-and-Jews.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Islam and Christianity - Part 2 - Infidels and Jews

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 13 April 2014

Topic Groups: FALSE RELIGION, ISLAM, APOLOGETICS

Sermon synopsis: The Quran is sharply contrasted to the Bible when it comes to the status and treatment of infidels (i.e. non-believers) and other races (in particular Jews).

Ishmael’s mother, Hagar, was told by an angel that he would live in conflict with his brothers. (Gen 16:11-12) Not only was this prophecy true of Ishmael, but even his descendants “lived in hostility toward all their brothers.” (Gen 25:18)

Today Ishmael’s descendants (the Arab races) still live in hostility, both amongst themselves (Sunni and Shiite) and with their brother race – the Jews (Isaac’s descendants).


Gavin-Paynter/Islam-and-Christianity_Part1_Status-of-women.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Islam and Christianity (Part 1) - Status of women

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 9 March 2014

Topic Groups: FALSE RELIGION, ISLAM, WOMEN

Sermon synopsis: At face value, Islam appears to share common roots with both Judaism and Christianity. But the teachings of the Quran are sharply contrasted to the Bible when it comes to the status and treatment of women.

Men are superior to women. (Sura 2:228)
Your wives are like a field. Plow them as often and anyway you wish. (Sura 2:223)
Husband, discipline your rebellious wives, beat them and deny them sex (Sura 4:34)
In one hadith Muhammad advises husbands to, “Hang up your whip where your wife can see it.”

The Bible says:
Eph 5:25-29 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her...
Prov 18:22 He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favour from the LORD.
1 Tim 5:1-2 ... Treat... older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity.


Gavin-Paynter/20130901_Doctrine-of-salvation-Part2.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Doctrine of salvation - Part 2

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 15 September 2013

Topic Groups: SOTERIOLOGY, SALVATION, FALSE RELIGION

Sermon synopsis: Christianity teaches that Jesus is not a mere man, a prophet, a guru or something similar, but the Saviour of the world, the only “name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)


Gavin-Paynter/20130324_Resurrection-of-Jesus-Part1.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Resurrection of Jesus - Part 1

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 29 March 2013

Topic Groups: EASTER, RESURRECTION, FALSE RELIGION

Sermon synopsis: False religions and cults follow people who are dead, or who will be dead one day. Communists revere and follow dead dictators
who murdered millions when they were alive. Animists pray to their dead ancestors for guidance. Those who are involved in the occult ask mediums to consult dead relatives on their behalf to give them guidance.
But 1 Peter 1:3-4 tells us that because of the resurrection, we serve a living Saviour and thus have a 'living hope'.



Gavin-Paynter/Gavin-Paynter.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Seek the Lord

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 22 December 2007

Topic Groups: COMMITMENT, PRAYER, FALSE RELIGION

Sermon synopsis: Why should we seek the Lord now? What is the difference between a diligent and a superficial seeker? Can we seek God in our own way - and on our own terms? What is the nature of false religion? What is the nature of true religion?


Gavin-Paynter/Gavin-Paynter.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Do Muslims worship the same God as Christians

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 13 May 2007

Topic Groups: ISLAM, FALSE RELIGION

Sermon synopsis: Are Allah and Yahweh one and the same? Do Muslims accept Jesus' claims about his deity and resurrection? Was Muhammad influenced by the Bible or by heretical Gnostic sources?
What is the significance of the crescent moon used on Islamic mosques and minarets? Did Jesus and Muhammad have similar teachings?


Gavin-Paynter/20060820-The-da-Vinci-code-exposed.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: The da Vinci code exposed

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 20 August 2006

Topic Groups: DA VINCI CODE, TRINITY, FALSE RELIGION

Sermon synopsis: The Da Vinci code - FICTION BASED ON FICTION.
In this revival of the old 2nd and 3rd century Gnostic heresy, Dan Brown presents a new, yet old, conspiracy theory. How do scholars of history, Christian and secular alike, view the claims of these pseudo-experts?
Find out why Brown is so selective in his quotations from the Gnostic gospels.


Gavin-Paynter/Gavin-Paynter.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Who do men say I am

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 5 June 2005

Topic Groups: JESUS, SALVATION, FALSE RELIGION

Sermon synopsis: Who do you say Jesus is? Was Jesus a great prophet or did he claim to be more than this?
Why is the question that Jesus asked his disciples at Caesarea Philippi (Matthew 16) the most important question ever asked - and why is it crucial that you know the correct answer?


Gavin-Paynter/Gavin-Paynter.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: A powerful delusion

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 25 November 2001

Topic Groups: PROPHECY, FALSE RELIGION

Sermon synopsis: Satan's 2 old lies from the Garden have been perpetuated in all false religion including the New Age and cults (1) 'You shall be as God' (the deity of man) and (2) 'You shall not surely die' (reincarnation).
2 Thess 2:9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, 10 and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.


David-Wilkerson/David-Wilkerson.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: The Gospel of Accommodation

Speaker: David Wilkerson

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 31 January 2000

Topic Groups: HERESY, FALSE RELIGION

Sermon synopsis: Accommodate means to adapt, to make suitable and acceptable, to make convenient. A gospel of accommodation is creeping into the US. It's an American cultural invention to appease the lifestyle of luxury and pleasure. Primarily a Caucasian, suburban gospel, it's also in our major cities and is sweeping the nation, influencing ministers of every denomination, and giving birth to megachurches with thousands who come to hear a non-confronting message.

Speaker: James Mullan
