TheEmotionsofGod

“The Emotions of God: How Man Can Bless or Hurt God” by Jesse Morrell is an exhaustive biblical study on the Divine Feelings.

Does God really have emotions? Or is He impassible? The question is simple enough but it has been much debated by Christians over the centuries.

The Bible portrays God as having emotions but are these real descriptions of Him?

Can God change in any way or is He absolutely immutable in all things?

Is God timeless or does He experience duration?

How should we live in regard to our obligations towards God?

Can man hurt God or inflict pain upon Him?

Can we contribute to His happiness?

These are the types of questions that are involved in this debate, which this book gives you biblical answers to.

It will challenge your understanding of God and edify your walk with Him.

As the Scriptures are expounded upon this topic, you may never view God the same way again.

“I have added the Emotions of God by Jesse Morrell to my most influential books. I would recommend it to all Christians.” ~ Stephen

NaturalAbility

The Natural Ability of Man: A Study On Free Will & Human Nature by Jesse Morrell is an exhaustive theological volume that defends the Christian doctrine of man’s free will against the false Gnostic doctrine of man’s natural inability.

This volume explains the truth of man’s freedom of choice in light of Church history and other doctrines like total depravity, regeneration, atonement, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, predestination, repentance, faith, the believers security, original sin, etc.

“The most comprehensive exposition on man’s natural ability in print.” Dean

SinfulNature

Does Man Inherit A Sinful Nature by Jesse Morrell is a thorough examination and refutation to one of the oldest theological excuses for sin – a sinful nature.

With an abundance of Scripture, keen logic, and an appeal to Christian teachers throughout history, this book not only shows that men are not born with a sinful nature but that sin is actually contrary to the nature God gave us.

“Jesse does an outstanding job of tackling and answering questions on a very misunderstood part of mans existence.” Oahu

Explaining 1 Corinthians 2:14 – “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

Click Here for FREE Christian Theology Books

On one of my facebook comments relating to Free Will and Human Nature, someone asked me this question:

What do you think how Paul describes natural man in 1 Corinthians 2:14?

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” (KJV)

This was my answer:

1 Corinthians 2:14 is talking about the carnal sensual man who lived for his appetites and gratifications. He doesn’t understand the chaste life of bodily discipline. He lives for indulgence and doesn’t understand why we would abstain or fast. He understands living for the flesh and doesn’t understand living for the spirit because he is a carnal man.

OUTREACH REPORT

One of my converts in California flew me out to the Los Angeles area to preach with him again. This has become an annual or sometimes biannual trip. I often say in my videos, “All it takes to bring me out to your area is a planet ticket and a place to sleep and we can do some preaching together in your area.”

Pasadena City College

I was late getting to campus because I think my flights were delayed. As soon as I landed I caught an Uber from the airport to the campus so that I could team up with everyone who was already on campus. By the time I arrived the day was already winding down but it looks like they had a great time out there.

landscape

My friend worked on getting the “free speech permit” a few days before we arrived and had no problems securing it. But the second day we were permitted to speak we found this to be the condition of the “free speech area.” Coincidence, maybe. Maybe not.

We’ve preached on this campus in the years past and it’s possible the administration doesn’t like it. It’s possible they didn’t like how the first day went so they sent out the landscaping crew to do some work on the bushes the second day.

This would not be the first time that the admin have sent out the landscaping crew to hinder us. That has happened in Philly, where landscapers with blowers followed us everywhere we went on campus. And that recently happened at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks, where a landscaper kept mowing the same patch of grass next to us over and over again.

Preaching the Gospel on these liberal campuses has really become a battle!

sebseb2

Since the first free speech area was an unusable disaster, I knew of another area on campus that might work.

There is an amphitheater on the other side of the building from where we normally preach. It is a wide open space with some foot traffic, but not as much as the original spot.

After preaching in the center of the amphitheater on some hot button topics, we were able to secure a crowd for a couple hours.

seb3

My friend Sebastian joined us on this campus with his wife. He lives locally in the area. He liked to preach and his wife passes out gospel tracts.

After preaching for a couple hours in the amphitheater we eventually lost our crowd, likely to the heat. It was a particularly hot day. So we moved back to the original courtyard area and preached in the shade. Students were happy to sit around and listen and engage us with questions.

campusjessepasadena

We spent a few days preaching on this campus. We were able to gather a crowd every day and even had a “core group” of regular hecklers who came out every day. That lead me to believe we could try a third free speech area that I’ve seen in the past but never tried. It was a beautiful amphitheater but it was off the beaten path. It was surrounded on all sides which makes it hard for anyone to see you and the surrounding areas don’t get too much foot traffic. But since we spent a few days on campus already, I knew our hecklers would come looking for us because they knew we would be back. We started preaching in this spot and sure enough, the people came!

My friend Zachary also took time off work and flew himself in from Kentucky to join me for the week! He is a young, zealous, fiery, up and coming open air preacher. He’s been faithful in the open-air for a few years now. He handle’s the crowds very well, addressing their questions and points. His demeanor is always very excellent.

pasadena

gayflag

bingo

“Bingo Cards” for open-air preachers became a popular thing a few years ago. Usually the campus Atheist club will pass out things like this when campus preachers show up. It actually does help the students pay more attention to what we are saying. That’s because they want to be the first to say BINGO! They will even say things like, “Hey, talk about atheism for a minute” in the hopes of getting BINGO.

zachamp

zachamp2zachpasadena

An atheist just told me during this trip, “If I don’t believe in God, I can do whatever I want to do.” And that’s what it all comes down to. Sinner’s don’t want God telling them what to do. They want to do their own thing, their own way, walking by their own wisdom. The problem is that man is not qualified to govern his own life. God is more loving than us and smarter than us. Those who are truly wise will submit themselves to the wisdom of God.

Great outreaches and great fellowship! I love it!

Revival Church Services

revivalservice

My host arranged for us to speak on campus every day and then speak at a local church every night. I had never done “a week of revival services” before so I was excited about doing it. One reason I wanted Zachary to join me from Kentucky was so that we could tag team both the campuses and the church services, as that is a lot of preaching in a week for just one man!

altar2altarrepentingpraying

Zachary preached on Sin and Hell. I preached on The Atonement and Repentance.

One night I said that many professing Christians live like life is a sin-buffet. A little bit of this. And a little bit of that. But they need a spiritual diet – cutting out all the sin!

I also talked about the atonement of Christ and said things like:

“The atonement alone saves no one without repentance.”

“God had wrath before the atonement for those who violated the law of Moses. And God has wrath after the atonement for those who trample the blood.”

“God will not turn from His wrath until sinners turn from their sins.”

“The atonement is not a license to sin. If sin is so bad that Jesus had to die for it, then sin is so bad that you should stop doing it!”

A lot of people came to the altar for a time of repentance afterwards!

Hollywood Blvd

hollywoodhollywoodstars

Preaching on Hollywood Blvd is always a lot of fun.

I found President Trumps star and took a selfie with it.

It’s had to be replaced after vandals destroyed it at one point.

starpreach  starwalk

The best part about Hollywood Blvd is that it is an internationally recognized placed with tourists from all over the world.

You can literally reach the nations by street preaching there!

And praise God, we saw multiple street preaching groups out there when we were there!

Adult Store Outreach

adultsign

One evening we went out and had a spontaneous outreach in front of an Adult Book Store.

This was not part of the plans but as we drove by it, the guys really wanted to do it.

adultstore

We set up right in front of the front door on the city sidewalk with our banner. My friend spoke through the bullhorn. I was amazed at the types of people we saw going in there, especially the groups of women that were going in.

copcar

twopolice

Sure enough the Police showed up. But their only request was that we not use the amplifier. The city ordinance allows for us, my friend said, but I told the Police we didn’t need to use it and could just put it away as a favor. We were close enough to the door that it wasn’t necessary and my voice is in good shape. The Police were easy to talk to and had no problem with us street preaching there without the amplifier.

blackisraelite

One of our hecklers that evening was a “Black Hebrew Israelite” who called me “Edom” and “Esau” for being a white man. According to him, salvation and heaven is a matter of race and natural birth. He was flipping through his Bible and trying to pull out all sorts of verses. It’s amazing how blind some people could be. Pray for his soul. He was cussing and full of hatred and violence. He needs to be born again of the Spirit.

BACK HOME

Meanwhile back home, the wife was busy with the kids making Holiday cookies!

I sure do miss the family when I am away on these trips!

They are always super excited when I come home!

Ministry Testimonies

austria

 

“I’ve been listening to you for a month now and I wanted to thank you. I’ve been reading my Bible every day now for a month.” ~ Carlos

Carlos also said he’s been with his “babies momma” for 14 years now but they’ve never been married. Now because of me he went out and got an engagement ring he said.

Someone told me:

” So appreciated your study on Acts 13:48. I wrote my masters thesis on a middle/passive, so I was very suspicious when I read the KJV translation of Acts 13:48. You handled it Biblically, contextually, theologically, and linguistically. GOOD JOB!!!”

Praise the Lord!

Here are more testimonies!

“It began nine years ago, for me, as I began to question Calvinism. Over the course of these years I slowly eliminated the tulips from my life. The final nail was your video on free will. Thank you so much.” Stephan

After the week of preaching in California I  got this email:

“I am an Evangelical Christian who is an employee at Pasadena city college. Almost all my colleagues know of my faith. This past week many of them came to me and asked about “the preacher” outside. They had numerous questions for me. Some of them seemed genuinely interested, saying it was “something about the guy”.

Very generous comment:

“This is absolutely the best message on holiness that I have ever heard. Jesse you are an awesome street preacher but you are dynamite in the pulpit!” ~ Gary

And after watching the same sermon, someone said they are now Forsaking Lukewarm Christianity:

“Hey Jesse, I’ve really been challenged to forsake some distractions in my life after watching your video, “What’s Wrong with the Modern Gospel & American Christianity.” God opened my eyes to my lukewarmness. I thank God for your ministry and love for the lost.” Eric

Praise God!  Watch this sermon here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKbJYiA8TNM&t=728s

Pray for Marci. She just commented on my Youtube video:

“Guess what sir. I quit the pot!! Praise God! that was the last thing (almost) keeping me from Jesus. Now I’m working on the cigs. Thank you for convicting me of being lukewarm. I want to be how God wants me. GOD bless you in Jesus precious name.”

winsouls
repented
nocompromise

Please pray for all these people who are repenting and coming to Jesus!

And pray for all the new street preachers that are being raised up all over the world!

Hawaii: Paradise on its way to Hell

OAOHeader

Follow us on social media:

YOUTUBE        INSTAGRAM        FACEBOOK

__________________________________________________

OUTREACH REPORT

I was blessed with an invitation to preach in Maui Hawaii with some local brethren who’ve been inspired by our ministry.

I half joked and said, “Hawaii is a rough mission field, but somebody has to do it.”

While Hawaii might be a paradise on the outside, it’s very different inside the hearts of the people.

Hawaii is full of drugs, alcohol, crime and every sin imaginable.

There is great need for bold Gospel preach on the Islands.

Hawaii is a paradise on its way to hell.

Planned Parenthood

Our very first outreach on the Island was to the local Planned Parenthood abortion facility.

With our banners and voices lifted high, we rebuked this horrible sin.

I gave various apologetic arguments:

“If the baby is not alive, why do you have to kill him before you remove him?”

“If they found a single living cell on Mars you’d say, ‘Look, there’s life on other planets!’ But you have a multi-cell baby living inside the womb and you say, ‘No life there!'”

Not surprisingly, someone called the Police.

Across the street was a grocery store and we even had women in that parking lot heckling us.

The real problem with abortion isn’t so much that Planned Parenthood supplies it, though that should be illegal, but that there is a huge demand for it in America!

The Police acknowledged our rights to be there and just as a courtesy I preached with my bare voice without the bullhorn, which isn’t a problem for me.

University of Hawaii

After we left Planned Parenthood we made our way to the local university to preach.

I had preached on this campus the previous year.

It does not have very much foot traffic but I’ve been able to draw a crowd every time I have gone there.

The previous year I was assaulted on this campus but I was happy that didn’t repeat itself this year.

The City Police were once again called on us but at this point they knew who we were since we dealt with them outside of Planned Parenthood.

The Police showed up to see what was going on. They made some phone calls. Talked to some administrators. But they never did talk to us.

We just kept on preaching without any hinderance.

We preached on campus two days during this trip, a couple hours each time.

By the later afternoon the crowds would die down but during our interactions, they were pretty lively.

The overall atmosphere of “The Island” is “laid back” and “relaxed,” but when you start pointing out people’s sins and calling them to repentance, they can get pretty wiled up and the demons can start manifesting.

Universities today all across the country, from Alaska to Hawaii, from California to New York, are breeding grounds for every type of wickedness imaginable.

If we are going to win back America for God, we must go out and win the hearts and minds of the young people with the truth.

Muslim Mosque

Islam is spreading across the world.

It has taken a strong root in Europe now with their liberal immigration policies.

But America is not too far behind. Even the small Island of Maui has a Mosque.

This simply provided us with another great location for street preaching!

With our banners and bullhorns, we preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ and called them out of their sins.

The poor city Police were once again called on us. They said, “Ok, so this will be just like what you guys did outside of Planned Parenthood.”

At this point the Police knew who we were, they knew how we operated, and they had no problems with us. Good police.

Boat Preaching

In the Gospels you will see that Jesus often preached on the shoreline.

Jesus even preached from a boat.

As disciples of Christ, we should do likewise!

Our host home has a wonderful boat that we took out for an outreach.

The previous year we did the same thing.

Along the coastline are many beach goers, surfers, etc.

There is even a “nude beach” that we preached to, but from far enough away that we couldn’t see anything. With the help of our bullhorn however, they surely heard us!

I joked, “I know that the people could hear us because they signaled to us with their middle fingers to let us know they heard us loud and clear!”

Corrupted Church

A local church was proudly flying the Rainbow Flag for all to see.

This was a signal that they were corrupt and compromised.

While it is biblical to preach at the shoreline and even from a boat, because Jesus did, it is also biblical to preach outside of the Temple! Jesus did!

In fact, God often sent his prophets not only to “the gates of the city” but also to “the gate of the temple” to rebuke them for their sins and call them out of their corruption.

That is precisely what we did and it sure stirred up some demons.

Voices were screaming. Car horns were honking. Fingers were pointing.

Eventually the Police showed up…. we were getting very familiar with them at this point.

We told them that as Christians, we take this matter very personally. It’s a problem with the church that Christians need to deal with.

We told them how long we planned on being there and once again the Police left us alone.

Downtown Lahaina

The nightlife was a very active scene full of restaurants and bars.

Peopled roamed the streets drunk and on drugs.

As I was preaching one man started heckling me. A team member told me that same heckler kicked him between the legs during his last outreach. Ouch!

Another man stopped his truck in the middle of the street and started heckling me. I rebuked him for his sins and he got out of the truck, which was parked in the middle of the street, and he got in my face.

At that point I smelled the beer on his breath. With the Police nearby I rebuked him for drinking and driving. At that point he quickly got into his truck and left….

The Police came and talked to. They had been watching us for a while. I made sure when they showed up that we were very calm and that our volume was very low. They said so long as there are no altercations, we were totally fine to do what we were doing. They said they just want to keep things peaceful and I said so do we.

Waikiki Downtown

We flew from Maui to Oahu to team up with some other brethren for a day of street preaching.

Honolulu had a Hotel worker Union protest going on, which gave us yet another great place to do some open air preaching.

The Police on this Island were not very happy that we were preaching to the Union workers. We explained to them that our plan was to preach in various locations and once they heard that we were leaving the Union protest to preach on some other street corners, they were happy with that.

We set up on a busy street corner in Honolulu and preached for a bit.

Then we marched the whole downtown area with our banners, preaching on our bullhorn.

Then we set up on the same corner downtown were we started.

Once man started heckling me, saying things like “There is no proof of God.”

I believe he said he was a college professor, which wouldn’t surprise me.

I asked him, “Who wrote the genetic code?” This was a question he couldn’t answer. He stormed off.

Waikiki Concert

Our latest outreach on the Island of Oahu was outside of a big music concert.

Someone told me the name of the artist, who is very popular in Hawaii, but I was totally unfamiliar with the name.

Knowing the name of artist didn’t matter when dealing with lost souls – the problem remains the same. Their sins are separating them from God!

I preached about how the devil tries to distract men from the real issues of life.

Our culture is hooked on TV shows, Movies, Music, etc.

Entertainment can be a constant distraction from dealing with the real matter at hand – we are all going to die and stand before God in judgment.

We had a pretty large team of us outside the concert and so we all took turns preaching.

Pearl Harbor

One highlight of our trip to Oahu was visiting Pearl Harbor.

Behind me inn the picture was a World War II Submarine.

I did film a quick Youtube video while at Pearl Harbor, which I haven’t edited and uploaded yet.

It was about how we all have Battles that we need to fight. The key is to keep fighting.

The Christian History of Hawaii

 

Downtown Lahaina on the Island of Maui has “The Baldwin Home” which was the house of medical missionaries to the Island.

The missionaries helped save the natives from a real epidemic and they gained the favor of the Royalty.

The king even planned some massive Banyan Trees to commemorate the missionaries.

Those Banyan Trees are now a popular destination downtown but few tourists even realize the history behind it.

I filmed a short film on the Christian History of Hawaii while at this locations. I’m working on getting those videos edited and online still.

Few people realize that Hawaii converted out of their tribal paganism to Christianity a long time ago and that it was Christians who taught the natives medicine, reading, writing, etc.

Christianity has been a very good force in the history of the world. The spread of civilization has been nothing more than the spread of Christianity in the world.

 

Just Some Humor 

A critic left this comment on one of my Street Preaching videos so I gave him a quick response….

I figured, two can play at that game!

Why Wasn’t Cain’s Sacrifice Accepted?

Click Here for FREE Christian Theology Books

Genesis 4:2-7:

4:2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

4:3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.

4:4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:

4:5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

4:6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?

4:7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

Why wasn’t Cain’s sacrifice accepted?

God told him why:

Gen 4:7 – If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

Cains sacrifice was not accepted because he was not doing well.

The Bible says:

Pro 15:8 – The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

Pro 21:27 – The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?

The problem was that Cain was a wicked man who was not doing well. His sacrifice was therefore not acceptable to God.

Abel was a righteous man and therefore His sacrifice was acceptable:

1Jo 3:12 – Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous

Heb 11:4 – By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh

The Bible says:

Psa 51:17 – The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

All this goes to show that a sacrifice or atonement does not save an impenitent man. There are many who think they are covered by the atonement of Christ while they continue to sin every day. The atonement doesn’t work like that. That’s the error of Cain.

Jde 1:11 – Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain

The atonement is not unconditionally saving in its nature. Only those who are broken over their sin and forsake their sin are covered by the Atonement of Christ.

Pro 28:13 – He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

What was Human Nature Designed For? Jesse Morrell Explains

KILGORE COLLEGE, TEXAS

I first started preaching at Kilgore College back in 2005. When I first tried to preach there the campus police tried to run me off. I talked to the administration and they did have a free speech zone and free speech permit. I utilized that process for a few months until the campus police said they didn’t like how long we preached for so they were going to limit it to only an hour. At that point I decided to bypass their free speech restrictions for preaching on campus by simply preaching on the city sidewalk – which was only about 50 feet from their free speech area anyways.

The Chief of Police even spray painted on the sidewalk “the line” which he said we couldn’t cross because then it would become “campus property.” That line only gave us about 2 feet of sidewalk from the city street. He also said that he was going to go to the city of Kilgore and talk to the City council about banning free speech on the sidewalks around campus, just to keep us away he said because he doesn’t like us.

His plans to ban free speech around campus never came to fruition. He later retired and we have had numerous Chief of Police on campus since. The newest Chief of Police has heckled us while we were preaching, which you can see on Youtube. But at this point, after battling with the Police for 14 years, we are finally at the point apparently where we can preach on the city sidewalks around campus without being hassled by the campus Police…. at least for now….

KC

I preached first and gathered an audience that congregated maybe 20 feet away from us. I have learned over the years that if you preach really loud, to get the attention of the campus, you will get their attention but they will also gather far away from you because they don’t have to get close in order to hear you. It’s a type of catch 22. Usually I start off loud enough for everyone to hear and then once I have secured their attention, I tone down the volume and the crowd will come in close.

My friend Joel joined me on campus with his young son, whom he wanted to introduce to campus preaching. Joel was more soft spoken which helped because the crowd circled in closely around him. He answered their questions as his young son held a sign on the sidelines and listened intently.

KC2

Shem is a young man who contacted me through social media and said he wanted to join us on campus. He said he loves watching our YouTube videos and wants to be a street preacher. He joined us on campus with his father, who he said has been a missionary to Mexico for decades.

Shem also did a fine job of addressing the students. I think this might have been his very first time open-air preaching.  It is always deeply encouraging to see others step up on the soap box for the first time!

Since this is a smaller campus, we usually only preach for about 2-3 hours before the crowd disperses. On larger campuses we can hold crowds for longer because there is a population of students which allows for continual fluctuation – new people stop and listen as others leave. But after a couple hours, this campus was pretty dead and we left. Pray for all the seeds that were planted into their hearts!

GOD DESIGNED HUMAN NATURE FOR LOVE 

By Jesse Morrell

Everything God created has a function and a design.

God created human nature.

Therefore, human nature has a proper function and a design.

What is the proper function that human nature was designed by God for?

“For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves” Romans 2:14

The proper function of a thing is determined by its design.

When a thing operates according to its design, it functions properly and orderly.

When it malfunctions, it violates its design and is in a state of disorder.

Our moral obligations (how we should function properly) are according to the design of our human nature.

We were created to love God and love our neighbor. We were designed for love. Love is our proper function.

A holy man is simply a man who lives according to his true human nature – the way God designed mankind to live.

Sin is a malfunction – a violation of our design.

Sin has damaging affects upon our soul, heart, mind, and body precisely because it is a violation of our design.

Our world is in a state of disorder because men choose by their free will to violate their God given nature, just like Adam and Eve did.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection [στοργος: inhuman, unloving], trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”

2 Timothy 3:1-5

Emphasis: without natural affection [στοργος: inhuman, unloving]

It’s natural and human to be loving.

It is unnatural and inhuman to be unloving.

Human nature was designed by God for love.

LOOKING FOR A TAX BREAK FOR 2019?

Hey friends!

I am very happy to announce that now with the help of a local church, you can donate to our mission and receive a tax break from the government.

While any donations that are sent to us, made out to “Jesse and Krista Morrell,” are still personal gifts (and still a good way to give), any checks that you send to us made out to “Crossroads Community Church” will be tax deductible!

The mailing address is still the same:

PO Box 1527 Lindale Tx 75771.

But whether you make the check out to “Jesse Morrell” or “Crossroads Community Church” will determine tax deductibility.

So if you want to donate to our mission and get a tax break, just write a check to;

Crossroads Community Church
PO Box 1527
Lindale TX 75771.

That’s our ministry P.O. Box and we will deposit those checks into our missionary bank account with the church.

Thanks again to all our supporters!

Your giving is really changing the world and advancing the kingdom of God.

As you can tell from my monthly email newsletters, we are seeing a harvest of lost souls repent and come to Christ!

We couldn’t do all the things that we do without help from the body of Christ!

Why doesn’t God Stop Evil if He is all Powerful and All Good? Christian Apologetics with Jesse Morrell

27788665_963876233776540_7512071167747851648_o

I have a good friend in Missouri named Paul who brings me out to visit and preach every once and a while.

A few years ago during the “Black Lives Matter” protests, Paul was with me on Mizzou when I was punched in the mouth while preaching – a story that made national news with Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and also Alex Jones. That is still my second most popular YouTube video, with 250,000 views.

Brother Paul has joined me on other campuses and streets as well, which you can watch on Youtube. It’s always a pleasure to team up with him.

University of Missouri Kansas City Day One

UMKC4

I had never preached on the University of Missouri in Kansas City before so I was excited to preach there for the first time. We spent two days preaching on this campus.

This trip was about a year ago when Hillary Clinton was still heavily covered in the news. Knowing that many of the students were liberal Hillary voters, I mentioned her name to stir up some attention.

If I were to preach on this campus this week, I’d bring up Jeffrey Epstein since he is the one being covered in the news right now. It would be easy to use Epstein as an example of how billions of dollars doesn’t change the fact of reality that sin naturally tends to misery and death.

UMKC1

It didn’t take long before I gathered a crowd of students around me.

One girl was heckling and cussing and so I said to her, “Watch your language! There might be ladies around.” That’s a line I learned from Ray Comfort a long time ago.

She said, “I am a lady! Want me to pull down my pants and show you?” (Not very lady like).

I said, “How am I supposed to know how you identify?”

The crowd was baffled and dumbfounded. And the girl thought it was hilarious. As you can see from the picture, she jumped for joy at my comment.

.

UMKC3

I wanted to hammer home the simplicity of our message. Heaven is for the righteous. Hell is for the wicked. So in order to escape hell and have a home in heaven, you have to repent of your sins and be born again by faith in Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches works-based damnation and faith-based transformation!

UMKC2

Brother Paul has preached at this location before so he knew exactly where to go.

It was nice to have someone to tag team preach with.

He handled the crowd very nicely.

University of Kansas

KU3

Salvation is a change of future. We were on our way to hell for our sins, then we repented and turned to the Lord, now we are on our way to Heaven. We were under God’s wrath. Now we are under God’s mercy. We were sinners. Now we are saints. Salvation is all about change.

I’ve had many people ask me, “Suppose you are right and we are going to hell for our sins. What are we supposed to do?” I encouraged the crowd, “God has given you the power to change your future by repenting of your sins.”

UK1

Another student asked, “Why doesn’t God Stop Evil if He is all Powerful and All Good?”

I said, God has loving reasons for allowing evil to continue. He could stop it all right now by force and send everyone to hell but He is giving mankind a chance to repent. God has loving reasons for allowing free will to take its course. Without free will you can’t have love. But with free will you have the possibility of sin and it’s hurtful consequences. Life is a test to see what type of person you will choose to be.

On Judgment Day God will separate the wicked from the righteous, so that the wicked will no longer be able to sin against the righteous.

UK2

As I was preaching a student yelled, “What’s wrong with homosexuality?”

I said, “Homosexuality causes brain damage!”

He said, “Prove it!”

I said, “Watch, in a few years if America continues down this pathway of perversion, you’ll have men who think they are woman!”

The students said, “We already have that!”

I said, “See! I told you it would happen!”

That was classic.

University of Missouri Kansas City Again

UMKC21

We returned to the frontline battle at the University of Missouri in Kansas City.

Fornicators: “Marriage is just a piece of paper!”

Preacher: “Gay marriage is just a piece of paper!”

Fornicators: “What? Hey! Why is gay marriage just a piece of paper!”

Preacher: “God instituted marriage – male and female. Marriage has meaning and is holy. But you guys say marriage is just a piece of paper to justify fornication but then get upset when I say gay marriage is just paper! You’re inconsistent.”

.

UMKC22

A woman opposed my preaching on campus. She told the crowd “We can’t obey God. That’s why we need grace. That’s why it’s called Amazing Grace. Through grace we can obey God.”
 
But then she insisted, “You can’t be perfect. Sanctification is a process. We all sin.”
 
I told her “Your grace isn’t amazing enough! If it can’t keep you from sin! If it can’t make you perfect! Your grace isn’t amazing at all!”
 
Such double talk – we can’t obey God so we need grace. By grace we can obey God. But by grace we can’t stop Sinning. This makes no sense – the result of a piece meal theology derived from mainstream cliches.
 
I said, “Grace is not a license to sin.” She said “No it isn’t.” I said, “Then stop Sinning!” She didn’t know what to say.
 
She said we need the Holy Spirit to be able to obey God. I said men in the Old Testament obeyed God and were perfect before Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was given. The Bible says the Holy Spirit is given to those who obey God already (Acts 5:32).
 
She thinks that we cannot obey God and that is why we need salvation. But the Bible says that salvation is given to all those who obey Him (Hebrews 5:9).
 
I battled with her over more issues. Modern Christianity has messed her up. She thought the sinful life described in Romans 7 was the Christian life. She said it’s the Holy Spirits job alone to convict sinners of their sins. She said Jesus preached conviction, not condemnation. She said I was a Pharisee but admitted she was a religious sinner. She was wrong on all these points.
 
She told me to “speak the truth in love” but when a homosexual asked her where does the Bible condemn homosexuality, she didn’t want to speak the truth in love! She refused to answer that question because she wanted the praise of the crowd.
 
Pray for her. I think she is convicted of her sins but isn’t yet converted. She hasn’t fully surrendered her life to God, after all, she’s been taught that you can’t. She thinks she is covered by grace if she continues in sin, which is a false gospel. I pray she repents and has overcoming faith with victory over temptation.
.

OneSin

I was telling the crowd, “It takes ONE sin to go to hell. How many sins have you done?” “You deserve hell for every sin you’ve ever committed. If you’ve committed a million sins, you deserve a million hells. Don’t you see why you need Jesus?”

Pray for all the seeds that we planted into their hearts and minds. For many of them, this was the first time they heard these basic biblical truths!

________________________________________________________________

Refuting the Calvinist Argument:

“If Jesus Died for Everyone, Jesus is a Failure.”

The Calvinist argues, “If the atonement was intended to save everyone, Jesus failed. The atonement was intended to save everyone that is actually saved by it. The atonement accomplishes its mission.”

Answer: The atonement was not intended to unconditionally save everyone. Otherwise, you are right, it failed because there are plenty of unsaved people going to hell. In fact, the atonement wasn’t intended to unconditionally save anyone at all, as no man is saved by the atonement without repentance and faith.

The atonement was intended to:

1. Make salvation available to unbelievers.
2. Make salvation actual to believers.

Mission accomplished!

The atonement was intended to be a means by which all could be saved and a means by which all who repent and believe actually would be saved. The atonement successfully accomplishes both of these – it makes salvation available to all men upon certain conditions and actually saves them when those conditions are met.

In light of this, it can be said that Jesus died for those who go to hell without Christ being a failure at all. His death was intended to make their salvation possible while in their sins and unbelief and actual if they met the conditions of repentance and faith.

His death for the damned, in that regard, is not a failure as He accomplished all that He set out to do. It was the sinner who neglected so great a salvation, not Christ who failed to make an atonement for him. It is the sinner who is the failure, not Christ.

1Ti 4:10 – For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, specially of those that believe.

Heb 2:3 – How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation

Heb 10:26-29 – For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

Pornography Causes Brain Damage | Neuroscience Report

Click Here for FREE Christian Theology Books

PORN CAUSES BRAIN DAMAGE

By Jesse Morrell

Did you know that Pornography Causes Brain Damage?

It’s neuroscience. There are lots of reports on it.

The brain compensates for the over indulgence of a porn addict by creating less dopamine receptors in his brain.

The result is that it takes more to arouse him.

Addicts go from soft porn, to hard porn, to eventually things like rape porn, bestiality, child porn, etc.

To compensate for less dopamine receptors in their brain, they start to wire in their “aggression drive” into their “sex drive” and start doing things like choking, spitting, slapping, bondage, etc, to get aroused.

That is why the path of pornography has created many rapists and even serial killers.

The brain damage is also why pornography leads to erectile dysfunction, where men are no longer attracted to their wives and can no longer be aroused by them.

After staring at young perky porn stars so long, their wife just doesn’t do it for them anymore. Which would not have happened, if they had guarded their eyes for only their wife.

It is also why some male porn stars even have to start themselves off with masturbation (who knows which sick fantasy it takes to arouse them) because even the young porn star in front of them no longer arouses them.

Hugh Heffner, it was said, always had to “finish himself off” after having orgies with his “Playboy Bunnies.”

There is wisdom in God’s law. It is good for you. Sin is always a perversion and since it is a violation of your design, it always damages you.
