This is a study in the forceful and terrorizing grip that unmitigated self-appetite can have on both an individual life and the life of a society. To be American used to carry with it (whether it was deserving or not) the Puritan ideals of integrity, chastity, prudence, temperance, goodwill, generosity, and mercy. But times have certainly changed. Now, it appears that around the world today, the “American” is often known instead for their bizarre sense of entitlement and their strange brand of religion (oft misunderstood to be Christianity) that gives them a so-called “liberty” to live in a constant state of excess and self-seeking pleasure. And thusly, the once noble and honorable word “American,” has become a synonym for “Glutton.” Oh, for the Church of Jesus Christ to come out from among this and be separate.
If you are familiar with the Ellerslie Short Film entitled, The Gospel, then you will be duly prepped for this message, which is the full-blown sermon edition (thunder and all). At Ellerslie we are not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the power of God unto Salvation! Praise God for such a message of resounding victory, redemption, and grace.
THE SHORT GOSPEL VIDEO
This deals with questions and answers about abortion. There is much guilt for man and woman about abortion Dan Franklin, Randy Alcorn, and Diane Meyer at Good Shepherd Community Church.
Why would someone who does not believe in GOD or THE GOSPEL be watching this video??? Something inside your heart tells you that you are in need of such a loving God. In need of an Intercessor for your sins….. ONE DAY YOU ALL WHO DO NOT BELIEVE WILL KNOW HOW GOO IT FEELS TO SAY WITH A LOUD VOICE THANK YOU JESUS MY LORD FOR RESCUING ME!!!!. Ask yourself the tough question, what moves you in this life?, You choose. Luke 12:34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Do you really trust him and are you willing to lay your life on the line and prove God faithful or are you to busy. There are lost are you saying God send me! or are you going to let someone else get the job description God designed for you? Maybe you say I’ll only follow God so far, anything beyond this point is extreme. Don’t you realize he purchased your body and you belong to Jesus Christ? Don’t define the terms of how he uses you. Are you willing to go if he asks without the comforts of life for Jesus Christ your King? Are you willing do suffer and die for Christ if he calls you. Put your life for him to be willing to let go. Jesus was described as a worm and no man you don’t need to be noticed. Go do his work. James 5:3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
The Gospel – http://www.ellerslie.com – May we be unashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Romans 1:16) Please note that this is a metaphorical take on the Gospel. It presumes a knowledge of the historic framework of the Cross, Burial, Resurrection, and Ascension of Jesus Christ. Though certain elements of the Cross-work are not fully explained herein (i.e. – Jesus’s fulfillment of all righteousness, His perfect match with all the Old Testament Messianic prophecy, and His bearing of the outpoured wrath of God in our stead), we in no way wish to diminish their significance and importance in the Gospel landscape.

Eric Ludy – The Gospel (by setapartlife)
There is no perfect culture, so people will steal from others. The countries of this world need good laws. Every culture will have dishonest people. People steal for many reasons.There needs to be laws that protect the people. The courts need good laws and honest Judges. The Judges need truth in the heart. God knows best so we can know this law. Leviticus 25:18 Follow my decrees and be careful to obey my laws, and you will live safely in the land.If two people go to a Judge. The Judge must have good knowledge of the law and be honest in the way the case is handled. The problem is this. The countries don’t have a good law or the Judge is corrupt.The cure is this. We need the Bible as the foundation for are law and Judges that fear God. Job 21:22 “Can anyone teach knowledge to God, since he judges even the highest?
“We say thank you god for being a father to the fatherless. But he says remember you call yourself my body, I’m not there except through you, your hands are my hands, your feet are my feet, that heart is my heart. I work through my body, I’m a father to the fatherless through my body”. God is looking for more than the money of the saints. He’s looking for the entirety of their lives to be spent for the weak. Psalm 41:1 Blessed are those who have regard for the weak; the Lord delivers them in times of trouble.
ASKING THE TOUGH QUESTIONS GOLD OR GOD
Ask yourself the tough question, what moves you in this life?, You choose.Luke 12:34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.Do you really trust him and are you willing to lay your life on the line and prove God faithful or are you to busy. There are lost are you saying God send me! or are you going to let someone else get the job description God designed for you. Maybe you say I’ll only follow God so far, anything beyond this point is extreme. Don’t you realized he purchased your body and you belong to Jesus Christ. You Don’t define the terms of how he uses you. Are you willing to go if he asks without the comforts of life for Jesus Christ your King. Are you willing do suffer and die for Christ if he calls you. Put your life for him be willing to let go. Jesus was described as a worm and no man you don’t need to be noticed.

It has taken Eric Ludy four years of spiritual wrestling before he was ready to deliver this super-charged message. After all, within a modern Christian system that has been greatly undermined by the “Health, Wealth, and Prosperity Gospel,” no one in the “Biblically Conservative” camp really wants to touch this issue which lies right smack in the middle of the “Charismatic” and “Faith Movement” controversy. It’s high-time that the Church of Jesus Christ gain a Biblical and sound answer to this important issue of healing without blindly throwing the blanket answer of “cessation” over it. Was healing merely an outward seal upon the ministry of the Messiah and His apostles, or is it something that is intended by God to be included in our understanding of the Atonement? The answer to that question has far-reaching ramifications.
Eric Ludy – A Cult Leader’s Worst Nightmare
This is a subject that most of us simply don’t want to face. But face it we must. For, if the saints lose their watchfulness and discernment, the enemy moves into the Church with speed and precision.This particular message is possibly one of the most important messages Eric Ludy has ever given.It took guts to give it and it will take guts to listen to it. And may it be proven true that this message becomes a thorn in the side of every spiritual manipulator the world over.
