Still puzzled!
I have listened/watched this vid.
I still do not know what this man thinks is the way to be saved!!
Simply to follow Jesus? EH?
As he puts it, "Trust in Jesus in order to be saved" Is he just a man with lots of information and does not know what the sum total of it all adds up to?

Expand if you could because there may be someone about to die out here and you have missed a chance to lead that man or woman to repentance and salvation.

My Bible says:
Jesus says..."I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
John 3:3

John the Baptist says ...Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near." Mat 3:2

Jesus says.....From that time on Jesus began to preach, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."
Mat 4:17

The time has come," he said. "The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!"
Mark 1:15

Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:38

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,
Acts 3:19

Jesus says...I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish
Luke 13:3
It would seem there is some importance in this repentance and the need to be born again.

As I said I watched the video cast.
All heard was a lot of idle chatter about a phone call and then a rather flippant remark about it being fun. Fun?
This is a serious topic. Eternal damnation or Eternal Life. For someone who calls himself Doctor (I presume theology) Also Reverend he really does skate around the pond rather than get to the middle of it.
Why not tell them viewers how to be saved.
OR!!!!!!!!! God forbid, is the way of salvation merely following Jesus as a philosophy or tradition?

hello my friend
we are all very well aware of all those verses
as i said - why not spend some time listening to his sermons at farmfellowship.com
i think you will see he is a faithful man of God with much fruit - as dozens of people have already come to Christ up there
this project abraham is simply a short project to encourage his church members to take a look at their earthly possessions and remember that we are waiting for our King to return - much like the feast of the tabernacles in Lev 23

I pressed the wrong clicker thing
Abraham Jude here. not anon. it won't recognise something on my password
You miss the point!
Why not tell it like is on the Podcast.
People watching them do not know of these other "messages" you refer to.

perhaps you could post one of his sermons which deals with the points in question.

as i have mentioned
the podcasts are merely a project for his church
they are not sermons - simply theological reflections as they live in tents for 1 month

Had a listen.
Got bored waiting for the way to be saved.
Perhaps you can copy and paste and give the time of the way of salavation on the recording.

Abraham
this is not my stuff
it is his church's own stuff for his own church and friends of his like me
if you are not happy with it, then please feel free not to listen to the podcasts and stick to his sermons on farm fellowship
i can't help your boredom =)
