      Tim Kimmel’s sermon this morning was very much on target and in keeping with the 2010 theme of personal involvement. I appreciate that it was not a sermon that Jamie could deliver as the pastor of the church, but it certainly was a message I needed to hear this morning. The evangelical church really does need to take a public and vocal stand on social issues to protect those less fortunate, and it is up to each of us to live our lives in a way that speaks volumes to those issues. Thank you so much.

      Today was my first time visiting the Scottsdale Bible Church, and I thank God for giving you that wonderful message you gave. You spoke the truth and convicted everyone especially me. I am asking God to move me in the direction He wants me to move.

      Tim Kimmell, it was a great sermon! You went with what God wanted, and God used you thoughtout the sermon. I bet you felt like wow at the end, but you also worried… God saw a smiled, I bet He smiled. You saixd nothing but the truth, and God and love (which is God), is nothing but truth. I was blessed hear what was true. You are devoted to God over man. May the Jesus smile at you, bless you, smile some more, and use you totally!

      In the 12 patents we obtained we were required to argue the validity of each claim.

      You used two social conditions in making your point without giving the complete background.

      Illegal emigrant vs pro-life:

      Illegal emigrants break a federal law. Perhaps the law should be changed but it is a law. Pro-life protesters are peacefully protesting a law that should be change, but are not breaking the law established by the courts. Except for two or three nuts.

      Segregation: When I studied in college I prepared a research paper for an English class on Dr. King. He was truly a great American. However, in making your point about conditions in Bermingham when Dr King was in jail, also Dr. Abernathty was there as well; you failed to say that segration laws had been passed and review by court to be valid. Also most churches were teaching that unequally yoked included black with white. 2 Cor 6-14.

      I am not in any way attempting to justify social wrongs, or to defend Christians for their inactions, but it always helps to jsutify a claim if we review all points.

      Two of my closest friends who attend SBC told me about your sermon. They told me about your sermon because my family and I left SBC church several months back because of the comments we heard too often about the ills of illegal immigrants. The hurt of such comments grew when the discussion moved to “possible illegal immigrants”. This made us wonder realizing that if you didn’t know us wouldn’t that make us “possible illegal immigrants.” My wife and I listened to your sermon on-line. Thank you for speaking so candidly about people who are here because of our government, our marketplace, and consumers – we did contribute to this situation. Thanks for reminding us that we need a more compassionate solution to this dilemma. Our family will be back this Sunday. We want to be part of a church that is willing to speak openly about such issues and serve a merciful yet dangerous God.

      A biblical world view requires that we put God’s law, His commaandments and Christ’s examples first. If the bible isn’t clear on a matter, only then should we refer to our “federal” / man-made laws for clarification. This is particular useful when the bible doesn’t cover the specifics of traffic laws, building orginances and patent laws necessary for a functional society. But the bible is clear. God loves us and he commands us to love others, the nations he “counts as dust” (Isaiah 40:14-16). Its the people that matter not the place!

      I was very moved by Tim Kimmel’s sermon Sunday morning and so was my entire family who attended with me. My husband, my two daughters and my son-in-laws.Thank you for so called stepping on toes, I believe God chooses special servants to deliver that message and it was done very appropriately…our church needs that growth and knowledge. I would like to know who sang that song on the video and if that song is recorded…how I could get a copy..the words were a strong message that I would love to give to friends. Thank you and God Bless You and your family Ted Kimmel.

      Tim, thanks for giving a heartfelt message on a tough subject. It was long overdue. As a Christian, I can not understand how Christians can profess the love of Christ and then show such anger and hostility to a group of people. We must remember that each and everyone of us are made by Him and in His image, therefore we are all equal. Thank you and God Bless You.
