Episode 8 – Heaping Burning Coals (Part 3 of 3)

Welcome

Burning coals

Welcome to the eighth installment of Traditores Higher Frequency. This week we have the third of three episodes related to the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California that left 14 dead and 21 wounded in early December of 2015.

When such a horrible act is committed, how should we react toward the perpetrators?

Before we continue with that however, I wanted to wish you and yours a Happy New Year. This is being recorded on New Year’s Day, 2016 for broadcast starting tomorrow, January 2. Here is hoping that 2016 is your best year ever…and that if you do not know the Lord Jesus that you’ll find him before the year ends…or you are called into eternity…whichever is first.

Also, I have a personal request. We are trying to be good stewards of time and money…so if you have listened to Traditores Higher Frequency…please contact us and let us know. We aren’t looking for funds, just feedback…and we would be blessed starting off 2016 with a note from you. To do so, please visit thf.fyi on the web and look for the “Contact Us” menu item at the top right…or e-mail me directly at alan@thf.fyi.

Now…back to the question that has driven the last two…and is driving this…broadcast.

When a horrible act like the terrorist attack in San Bernardino is committed, how should we react to the perpetrators?

In the previous installments we looked at Scripture that wished pretty harsh things on enemies…along with other verses that, for instance, told us to love our enemies. This week we try to bring it all together, harmonize those differences, and leave with something we can apply to our lives. May God will that you never have to go through what those on 9/11, 2001 or 12/2, 2015 had to…but you, most assuredly…will be wronged. My prayer is that when this episode wraps up you’ll know how the Lord wants you to treat those who sin against you.

Without further ado, let’s return to the Antrim Church of Christ in Antrim, New Hampshire

Episode 7 – Heaping Burning Coals (Part 2 of 3)

Welcome

Burning coals

Welcome to the seventh episode of Traditores Higher Frequency. This week we have the second of three broadcasts related to the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California that left 14 dead and 21 wounded on December 2nd.

When such a horrible act is committed, how should we react toward the perpetrators?

To answer that question, I am, in three parts, playing a sermon I preached on the 10 anniversary of the 9/11 attacks called, “Heaping Burning Coals on 9/11.” In the first portion I discussed how terrible the carnage was when radical Islamists used four airplanes as weapons, talked about our natural reaction to those who hurt us, and then shared some Bible verses that indicated it is okay to wish ill on evil-doers.

I’ll rewind a tiny bit as we head back to the Antrim Church of Christ in Antrim, New Hampshire for the second part of my talk on September 11, 2011…

Episode 6 – Heaping Burning Coals (Part 1 of 3)

Welcome

Burning coals

Welcome to the episode number 6 of Traditores Higher Frequency. This week we have the first of three parts connected to the horrendous December 2 terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California that left 14 dead and 21 wounded.

When such inexcusable evil is perpetrated, how should we react toward the evil-doers?

To answer that question, over the next three episodes I’ll be playing a sermon I preached on the 10 anniversary of the 9/11 attacks called, “Heaping Burning Coals on 9/11.” As I pondered the most recent atrocity from radical Islam, that talk seemed apropos.

With that short intro in mind, let’s join the brothers and sisters in the Antrim Church of Christ in Antrim, New Hampshire…
