Why did Saddleback change the settings? The videos were available for public view last week. The clip below came from one of the online videos. Could it be the fact that the Celebrate Recovery announcers plainly indicated at this 2009 Celebrate Recovery Summit that the fall 2009 Life's Healing Choices campaign for churches across the country is simply Celebrate Recovery for the nonaddicted?
Why would Saddleback block the videos that claim to heal your hurts, habits and hangups?
See what may have prompted Saddleback to pull the plug on the videos:
The Beatitudes before us, which relate to character, are, seven; the eighth is a benediction upon the persons described in the seven Beatitudes when their excellence has provoked the hostility of the wicked; and, therefore, it may be regarded as a confirming and summing up of the seven blessings which precede it.
Life's Healing Choices totally misses the key and foundational concept of mourning over the sinner's depravity in this current age, and the coming glorification in the next age. Spurgeon continues:
The seven Beatitudes mark deepening humiliation and growing exaltation." In proportion as men rise in the reception of the divine blessing, they sink in their own esteem, and count it their honour to do the humblest works.
...Not only do the Beatitudes rise one above another, but they spring out of each other, as if each one depended upon all that went before. Each growth feeds a higher growth, and the seventh is the product of all the other six. The two blessings which we shall have to consider have this relation. "Blessed are they that mourn" grows out of "Blessed are the poor in spirit." Why do they mourn? They mourn because they are "poor in spirit." Blessed are the meek" is a benediction which no man reaches till he has felt his spiritual poverty, and mourned over it. "Blessed are the merciful" follows upon the blessing of the meek, because men do not acquire the forgiving, sympathetic, merciful spirit until they have been made meek by the experience of the two benedictions. This same rising and outgrowth may be seen in the whole seven. The stones are laid one upon the other in fair colours, and polished after the similitude of a palace; they are the natural sequel and completion of each other, even as were the seven days of the world's first week.
Lawson states that the Kingdom of God is antithetical to this world. He points to Christ's words. If you are to be:
Lawson summarizes by saying that only one who is supernaturally born again can see the Kingdom of God.
