Sermon: Follower or Fooled?


You can now listen or watch the sermon I did last weekend on Matthew 7: 21-23, where Jesus says, “I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers.” This is a sermon for all those who may think they are saved when they really aren’t; in other words, this is for false converts to Christianity.

I sure hope you will never hear those horrible words from Jesus, but you better tune into this sermon right away to see if you will one day.! Thankfully, God moved twenty people to make a profession of faith after the sermon.

Here are some of the comments I heard from others after I gave the message:

One man stormed out in the middle of the service saying, “Everyone’s going to Hell! Everyone’s going to Hell!” Then he left. A few minutes later he ran back in and bought some Gospel tracts.

Another person, in the prayer room after the service, made this comment after making a commitment to Christ after the altar call: “I don’t understand why everyone doesn’t come forward.”


  1. It takes alot of courage to preach this message. I don’t think there are too many churchs where this kind of sermon can be preached. Thank you Lord and thank you Hope Chapel.

  2. Thanks Steve for preaching this message and for allowing full access to both video and text. I’m sure there will be much fruit from it.

  3. I am thankful that we have a pastor who is not afraid to say the really important things. May God continually bless you and your family.
