SERMON TOPIC: The seeker sensitive church

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 10 June 2018

Topic Groups: PROSPERITY, THE CHURCH, SOUND DOCTRINE

Sermon synopsis: Describing the last days, Paul warns in 2 Tim 3:1-5:

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

SERMON TOPIC: Celebrity Christianity

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 28 September 2014

Topic Groups: SOUND DOCTRINE, SUCCESS, PROSPERITY

Sermon synopsis: A seeker-sensitive church tries to reach out to the unsaved by making the church experience as comfortable and non-threatening as possible. In effect these churches try to remove everything that may offend or turn away ‘seekers’ (formerly known as sinners or unbelievers). The focus is mainly on church numerical growth and the belief that a successful church depends primarily upon the staff’s ability to professionally and seamlessly conduct the meetings - rather than the presence of God. The 45-minute Bible-based sermon is replaced with a 20-minute motivational “feel-good” talk focused on self-improvement. It is aimed at addressing the “felt needs” of the congregation while continually stressing that being a Christian will dramatically improve your happiness and quality of life both at home and work.

Certain topics are avoided in order not to offend the big givers. Songs are eliminated from the worship which speak of man’s sinfulness, the cross or the need of a Saviour. Proponents say that the reason behind all the expense, state-of-the-art tech equipment, and the theatrics is in order to better reach the unsaved with the gospel. But it is questionable if it is the gospel that is being preached. God’s holiness, wrath and justice are not mentioned; only his love. Rarely if ever are sin, hell, or repentance spoken of, and Jesus as the exclusive way of salvation won’t be mentioned. Such topics are considered too “divisive.”

The focus of a seeker church in reality is totally man-centred. Actually we should have God-sensitive churches, not seeker-sensitive.


Gavin-Paynter/Self-esteem-and-positive-affirmation-gospel.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Self esteem and positive affirmation gospel

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 14 September 2014

Topic Groups: SELF ESTEEM, SOUND DOCTRINE, PROSPERITY

Sermon synopsis: If I were to tell you:

Start your day by declaring, “I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.”

you may be tempted to think that this was a quote from an email or SMS encouraging Christians to make daily positive affirmations about themselves – which will then be fulfilled the more they say it.
In fact that is a passage of Scripture. But where is it from and what is the context?


Ken-Paynter/20130805_Success-or-Faithfulness.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Success or Faithfulness

Speaker: Ken Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 17 August 2013

Topic Groups: FAITHFULNESS, SUCCESS, PROSPERITY

Sermon synopsis: It seems like every time I flip through the channels on the TV, I come across endless numbers of 'preachers' with the same old 'health and wealth' message. It’s sad. They convince people that worldly success is the goal and result (or at least the indicator) of being a good Christian. This could not be further from the authentic Christian message - yet this is what many people see and believe. It just sets them up for disappointment and ends up undermining what faith they do have. I love how this quote keeps that in perspective. Our primary goal should not be to have success - whatever form that might take. It should be to remain faithful throughout.



Gavin-Paynter/20090208_Kingdom-of-God-7.JPG

SERMON TOPIC: The Kingdom of God - Part 7B - Positive Confession and Prosperity

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 5 April 2009

Topic Groups: PROSPERITY, PROPHECY, KINGDOM OF GOD

Sermon synopsis: Jesus taught 7 consecutive parables in Matthew 13 about the kingdom. The parables, if understood, reveal the secrets of “the kingdom of heaven” (Matt 13:10-11). The 7 parables refer to 7 church ages. The seventh parable of 'The Dragnet' covers the period from approximately 1900 AD - present or the 'Apostate Church'. What is the Biblical perspective on the widespread teachings of Positive Confession and Prosperity? We need correct teaching based on the Bible, not psychology, humanism or cultic philosophy.


Warren-Paynter/Warren-Paynter.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: SUFFERING AND PROSPERITY

Speaker: Warren Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date:

Topic Groups: PROSPERITY, SUFFERING

Sermon synopsis: Wherever we look today we see SIN, SICKNESS and POVERTY.
The QUESTION which arises in our minds is this: IS ALL THIS THE WILL OF GOD? HAS THIS STATE ALWAYS PREVAILED?
The ANSWER to both these questions is an UNEQUIVOCAL NO!!!
To examine our subject we need to go back to GENESIS, for there we find the REASON as to WHY SIN, SICKNESS, SUFFERING and POVERTY are so universally present in this world.
