SERMON SERIES by Pastor Delbert Young

ABRAHAM THE FRIEND OF GOD – sermon series, 15 sermons with notes, 1 sermon video, 1 sermon audio

Why at age 75 would a man leave all familiar and comfortable? What was so powerful causing Abram – Abraham to leave first Ur and then Haran to seek a land he had never seen? How does a person like this become a friend of God?

Abundant LifeABUNDANT LIFE – Living in the Kingdom – sermon series, sermon notes, sermon audios

John 10:10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have {and} enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).
Isn’t that great?! Life is supposed to be victorious and full for the Christ follower. The Bible teaches how the Believer is to enjoy an overcoming and overflowing life, but we all know this isn’t the way so many Christ followers exist. So many things steal life, kill life, and destroy life. Call it the devil. Call it carnal mind. It doesn’t matter what you call it. The truth is it will take life. What I want to do in our study is to reveal some things taking life and then see what Jesus did to give us life back.

baggage-300x200

BAGGAGE EVERYBODY HAS SOME – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

BUILDING A HOME OR A HELL 2 – Sermon, Series, Sermon audio

This is a sermon series about building a family and a home. I remember the day at the church altar in Midway Methodist Church. I stood with my beautiful bride. She was seventeen and I was nineteen. After repeating all the vows, we each said, “I do.” The preacher presented to the people Mr. and Mrs. Delbert Young. Away we went into a life of “living happy ever after.” Sure we did. A year later, we had a baby. There was not enough money to pay our bills. We fussed a lot. We were beginning not to like each other and it was downhill from there for many years to come. We were heading for destruction, but something changed…

COMMUNION SERMONS – Sermon videos, Sermon audios, Sermon notes

Jesus instituted the New Covenant with Communion. He said, This is… my body. This cup is the New Covenant. But with a piece of bread and a cup? How does this work?

Creative Power of Words

Sermon Series by Pastor Delbert Young

Deal or no Deal

DEAL OR NO DEAL – Sermon, Series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

Dealing with God. There are certain issues in the scriptures where the Lord sort of says, “I will make a deal with you. If you take my deal, here is what you get.” Then he gives us his deal and says, “…or, you can do it your way and take your chances in life.” He asks, “Which do you want? DEAL OR NO DEAL?”

Demons And Darkness

DEMONS AND DARKNESS – sermon series, sermon audio

Have you ever come face-to-face with a person who had a demon (or a demon who had a person)? I want to talk about DEMONS AND DARKNESS. My wife reminded me of a young man coming to our house once. He’d heard me speak of the influence of the devil. My wife told him, “The one thing worse than believing there is a demon behind every bush is believing there are no demons at all.” At some point in our Christian walk, we will come face to face with a demon and darkness. an understanding. So, what is the ascension about?

Sermon Series by Pastor Delbert Young

Don't Be Like

DON’T BE LIKE – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

DREAMDREAMDREAM

DREAM – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

God has promised to put a dream and a vision into every heart. It’s a spiritual thing. It’s not gender specific – all people both men and women. It’s not age specific – young and old. The young person is to see it as a vision for victory. The older person will look back to see if they have lived their dream.


Easter Sermons Page

EASTER SERMONS PAGEsermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

Easter is my favorite day of the year. It’s Resurrection Sunday! In first century times, people greeted one another saying, The Lord has risen! The reply was, The Lord has risen indeed! Another reason I think Easter is the most wonderful day of the year is it’s the day more people go to church than any other day all year long. This means Easter is the day more people come to Jesus as their Lord and Savior. What a great day!

 

Sermon Series by Pastor Delbert Young

Expecting the Miraculous

EXPECTING THE MIRACULOUS – sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

Does God desire to intervene in our lives by miracles and the supernatural, or is life a ‘Que sera, sera: whatever will be, will be’? Does God set a limit on miracles and you can “limit out” on the miraculous? How many believe that there is a miracle in you?

 

Sermon Series by Pastor Delbert Young

 

Sermon Series by Pastor Delbert Young

Faith Sermon SeriesFAITH – sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

Sermon Series by Pastor Delbert Young

The Favor of God

FAVOR OF GOD – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

What is God’s Favor? Does everyone have it? God desires to bless us by giving us special advantages and preferential treatment. Learn how to walk in God’s Favor every day.

Financial Liberation

FINANCIAL LIBERATION – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

We go to school to be equipped to earn it money. We spend forty or more years of our adult lives earning it. We invest countless hours and thought deciding how we are going to handle it. We walk through houses, stores, car dealerships, catalogs, and surf the web deciding how we will spend it. We worry we won’t have enough of it. We dream and scheme figuring ways to acquire more of it. Arguments over it are a major cause of marriage disintegration, business partnership breakups, and government collapse. Despair over losing it has led to suicides. The obsession of getting it has caused many of society’s crimes. It’s the root of evil. Some call it the means for great good, but one thing we will all agree on is we cannot ignore the importance of money.

Get A Life

GET A LIFE – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

You didn’t ask to be born. You can’t get out of dying. What you do in between you do have some say over. Why not choose to live? Why not get a life?” (Reggie McNeal, Get A Life, p. 1) This is a sermon series on getting a life. Let’s talk about “Why am I here?; What is Really Important to me?; Am I Making Mile Markers?; What Am I Good at?; What Do I Need to Learn?

Goals, setting your life's goals

GOALS, SETTING YOUR LIFE’S GOALS – sermon series , sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

Setting, establishing, and achieving goals for our lives is the difference between success and failure. We will never experience the God-given potential inside without goals. Jesus had distinct and specific goals. The Apostle Paul likely had a day planner. Goals in our lives push us through difficult “cross” times keeping us focused on what is truly important.

Sermon Series by Pastor Delbert Young

Growing Up In God

GROWING UP IN GOD – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

There are maturity levels in the Kingdom of God (1 John 1:12-14). At what level do you think you might be? Are you a little child, young man, or father? Arrested Development Syndrome is a mental condition where a person’s mental development is arrested. Many, perhaps even most, Christ followers experience Arrested Development Syndrome in the spiritual dimension. We stop GROWING UP. Church growth evangelism.

Handling Difficult PeopleHANDLING DIFFICULT PEOPLE – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

What does the Bible say about controlling people? How do we handle manipulation by others? People are manipulative, but what are some Bible verses to help us? What does the Bible say? Are we to simply be people pleasers? What if a husband is controlling? What if a wife is manipulative? What do the scriptures say? What if a mother or a friend is manipulative? Pastor Delbert attempts to help us with this age old problem. Every day of life we encounter critical people, overly needy people, controlling manipulative people, and hypocritical people. We attempt to shed a little light on this subject.

Healed Without ScarsHEALED WITHOUT SCARS -sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

We all are inwardly and emotionally wounded by life. Emotional wounds leave heart scars. We hide them and mask them. God wants to heal not only the wounds, but remove the scars.

Heroes of the Bible

HEROES OF THE BIBLE – sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

Pastor Young talks about Bible heroes, but talks in a way we seldom think of these supernatural people. Are you a HERO? You are if you’re in the kingdom.

I Love My ChurchI LOVE MY CHURCH – sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

We enjoyed this series. It’s a unique look at “Church.” God loved the world and gave his son. Jesus loved the Church and gave himself for it. People love their church. This study caused us to rekindle our love.

I Want to Leave Something Here

I WANT TO LEAVE SOMETHING HERE – sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

God not only has a plan for us to have abundant and successful lives, he also wants us to impact our society by leaving something here after we are gone. We are here to accomplish something and leave something that matters.

 

Sermon Series by Pastor Delbert Young

Important Values from the Kingdom

IMPORTANT VALUES FROM THE KINGDOM – sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

A value by definition is that which we think much of and regard highly. The values in a person’s life are those things which determine the person’s identity and destiny, define our success or our failure, the type of person we marry, the education one acquires, my occupation, how I treat people, my indebtedness, my appearance and cleanliness, the automobile I drive, the people I hang with, etc. Values vary from person to person, from home to home, from society to society, from nation to nation. Why is this? Why do we not all have the same values? Let’s talk about it.

Influence 3-D

INFLUENCE 3-D – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

How do we see people? Mostly it’s in one dimension, maybe two dimension. God sees us 3-D and wants us to see people 3-D. When we do, we see how much God loves people and how important people are to God. It’s when we get past the flesh and the soul and see 3-D, the spirit, we influence others the way we should.

Inside Yourself

INSIDE YOURSELF sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

Many people see themselves as an ugly duckling. God sees them more as a beautiful graceful swan. A proper inward self-image is extremely important. It releases our futures.

Intelligent Praise

INTELLIGENT PRAISE – sermon series, sermon notes

For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding. Biblical praise should be fun, exciting, exuberant, fulfilling, and enjoyable. We should enjoy the music and the “goose bumps.” However, praise should accomplish something. Praise should be with intelligence. Intelligent Praise will change a great praise service into a victorious life experience.

Issues of the Heart

ISSUES OF THE HEART – sermon series, sermon notes, 1 sermon video and 1 sermon audio

Have you ever said, or heard someone say something like, “Well you know the Lord looks at the heart?” What in the world does this mean? Why does the Lord look at the heart? What does he see when he analyzes my heart? What answers are provided for him with this inspection? Also, we need to learn to analyze our own hearts. If we are created in the image of God, then we too can look on the heart.

IT’S GOOD TO BE ALIVE – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

It's Not Right

IT’S NOT RIGHT – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

Sometimes life is not right. There is so much trouble and pain. It’s one thing after another. Bad times, well It’s Not Right! Or, is it? The Bible says to give thanks in all circumstances and consider it pure joy when we enter difficult times. How do we do this when It’s Not Right?

James The BookJAMES THE BOOK – HOW LIFE WORKS – sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

A look into the Book of James, the brother of Jesus. I want us to walk out today thinking, “Yes. That’s the way life actually works.” James said look into a mirror. Fix or don’t fix what you see. That’s how your life works. So, let’s call the series “The Way Life Works.” Study with us.

Jonah The BookJONAH THE BOOK – sermon series videos audio notes

Jonah is an interesting and unique Bible character. He was anointed, but didn’t want to do what he was anointed to do. Because of this, Jonah, like us, found himself in a bad place with people and with God. Let’s take a look at Jonah.

Joshua the Book - Possessing the Kingdom

JOSHUA THE BOOK – POSSESSING THE KINGDOM – sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

It will become a memorial time in your life. Have a personal Hill of Foreskins where you have allowed the Lord to circumcise your heart.

Kingdom Parables

KINGDOM PARABLES

(same as Parables of the Kingdom below) sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

Though Jesus taught and talked more about the kingdom of God than any other topic, Christians seem to know very little about the kingdom of God. What they do know they push off to a future day after a rapture and tribulation. Is this what Jesus taught? Are the parables about the kingdom for some other time or for now? We’ll dive into these thoughts and questions in KINGDOM PARABLES of Matthew 13.

Sermon Series by Pastor Delbert Young

Kingdom Truth Series

Live to Give

LIVE TO GIVE sermon series, sermon audios, sermon video, sermon notes

We all face the challenge and temptation of selfishness. It’s easy to slip into the subtle trap of selfishness. It’s very easy when we know God wants each of us to have the best. However, selfishness is not of God and will actually rob us of God’s best. What’s the answer?


Living in Peace

LIVING IN PEACE – sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

We live in a world and society that enjoys a strange dichotomy. We say we desire to LIVE IN PEACE, yet we love conflict and live so much of our lives worrying, arguing with people, anxious about everything, stressed about life, with chaos in the family, etc. Think just a minute. How much of your life, how many hours, days, weeks, months, or years have you given to worry and anxiety?

LOCKINGUNLOCKING

LOCKING AND UNLOCKING THE TONGUE sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

Scriptures instruct you to ask the Lord to set a guard over your mouth to keep watch over the door of your lips (Psalm 141:3). The image is an armed guard stationed at your mouth. What does a guard do? The guard LOCKS AND UNLOCKS opening and shutting the cell door. If there is anything we need to correctly LOCK AND UNLOCK or correctly open and shut, it is our mouths.


The Gospel According to Luke

LUKE THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LUKE – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

LUKE is a huge study of 131 sermons. It’s not only the life of Jesus Christ. It’s his thoughts and his teachings. Everything anyone would want to preach or study about Jesus is in here. It’s Jesus’ explanations and warnings about everything. At times it’s his feelings and emotions. It’s Jesus so very real. I loved studying and preaching this series. It took years. It’s principles changed lives. Of course it did. It is Jesus. Likely you will never find a more real Jesus than Luke gives us. Luke is the longest study I’ve done in my ministry of 30 years. I don’t regret one minute of it.

 

Sermon Series by Pastor Delbert Young


Marriage

MARRIAGE – sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

Apostle Peter gave several keys on how to make a marriage work. He spoke to to wives and husbands even when one of the spouses were non-believers. It’s amazing insight for today.

MEMORIAL DAY, 4TH OF JULY, VETERAN’S DAY SERMONS PAGE sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

MOTHER’S DAY SERMONS PAGE sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

Here are 12 Mother’s Day sermons taken from the scriptures. Mother’s Day is right up there next to Easter. There is no one like mother. Love your mom by being with her while you can. A day will come when you would give anything to be with mom.


New Year Sermons

NEW YEAR SERMONS PAGE – sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

What does it mean when we wish someone ‘Happy New Year’? It means we want their life to be happy, or happier, in the New Year, right? Why would it not be? Could it be there are some things we need to do to be happy? There are many things you should do, but there is one thing you know you must do if your life will be happy or happier in the New Year. In fact, it needs to become YOUR ONE GREAT PROJECT for your life.

Noah

NOAH – sermon series, sermon notes

God’s patience for repentance of wickedness is long, but always limited. It is at this time we meet Noah an end time generation

 

Sermon Series by Pastor Delbert Young

Offering and Sacrifice sermon series video audio notes

OFFERING AND SACRIFICE sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

We have come to a place in church where we associate Offering And Sacrifice with money only. We even say, We are going to receive the offering. People program us to think we must give God our money to appease God and maintain his tolerance of us. If all you understand about Offering And Sacrifice is limited to God wanting your money, then you are very narrow-minded and you will miss the purpose of this study. I want you to understand God does not want your money. He wants You – Your Heart.

Ordinary or Extraordinary

ORDINARY OR EXTRAORDINARY – sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

Ordinary people live ordinary lives and die ordinary deaths never changing or affect anything or anyone. Extraordinary people live extraordinary lives and affect and change something. I have never been ordinary. My name is not ordinary. Nothing about me is ordinary.


Palm Sunday

PALM SUNDAY SERMONS PAGE – sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

Here are 14 Palm Sunday sermons. What if you knew that you had less than one week to live? What if this was your last Sunday? Would you do anything differently? What if You Knew You would Die Friday at 3 o’clock?

Parables of Jesus

 

PARABLES OF JESUS – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

The number of references in the scriptures speaking about how often Jesus spoke in parables is amazing. There are more than forty such references. As I looked, I was greatly struck by the obvious emphasis the gospel writers placed on the Lord’s use of parables. They emphasized greatly how he again spoke to them in parables, and again spake he a parable unto them saying, and a parable spake he unto them, or hear the parable of…, etc. The emphasis was “again” Jesus used parables. Here’s a look at several of the Parables of Jesus.

PARABLESOFTHEKINGDOM

PARABLES OF THE KINGDOM – (same as Kingdom Parables above) sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

Though Jesus taught more about the kingdom than any other topic, Christians seem to know very little about the kingdom of God and what they do know they push off to a future day after a rapture and tribulation. Is that what Jesus taught? Are the parables about the kingdom for some other time or for now. We’ll dive into these thoughts and questions in KINGDOM PARABLES.

People and Divine ConnectionsPEOPLE AND DIVINE CONNECTIONS – We need to pray every day for divine connections. We need to pray God will bring into our paths the people we need, and weed out the people from our lives and paths who hinder our growth in God. God will bring the right people, but if we continue attachments to the wrong people, it will hinder our progress, or detour us from experiencing divine connections.

POWEROFWORDS

POWER OF WORDS – sermon series, sermon notes, sermon audio, 1 sermon video

Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
We use words to accuse a person or encourage a person. We use words to make people laugh or make people cry. We use words to bring healing or hurt. We use words to teach truth or tell lies. We use words to bless or curse. We use words to create gossip or to stop gossip. Your words will bring you victory in life or your words will bring you defeat.

Sermon Series by Pastor Delbert Young

Creative Power of Words

POWER OF WORDS – CREATIVE POWER OF WORDS – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

As a horse’s bit directs, turns, and makes the horse obey it’s rider, our words direct, turn, and cause our lives to obey. Exactly as a ship’s rudder sets its navigational course, words set the course of life as we navigate through it.

Power Of sermon series video audio notesPOWER OF… – sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

There are things giving us the power of life. These specific things not only empower us, they direct where we go and what we do with life. Without utilizing these empowering things, we accomplish nothing. We live wasted lives. With them understood and developed, we do great things. They may change completely over the years, but from them we acquire direction for our lives and a desire to accomplish great things.

Power of Believing.POWER OF BELIEVING – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

People Jesus loved and grew up with missed out on some mighty things happening in their lives because of their unbelief. Unbelief caused them to miss God’s best. Jesus wanted to do some great things, but their unbelief stopped great things from happening. It wasn’t so much sin that stopped the mighty works of Jesus. It was unbelief. Often it is not because we are doing anything wrong on the outside. Sometimes it is because we need to expand our belief on the inside.
Praise Him Worship HimPRAISE HIM WORSHIP HIM – sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

A fresh look concerning praise and worship. What does God seek and want from us in praise and worship? What does biblical praise and worship look like? We take a look at these and much more.

 

Sermon Series by Pastor Delbert Young

Presence of God

PRESENCE OF GOD – sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

Have you ever experienced the presence God in a way where you felt you could touch him? It’s a presence like people in the Bible experienced. It was a ‘magic moment’ where God’s presence was so strong you couldn’t stand. God’s fiery presence was so real, so thick, so holy, you went down because there was nothing else to do.

Pride

PRIDE – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

Pride destroys. Pride shrinks and stops our capability to hear what we need to hear from people. Pride shrinks and stops our capability to love people and pride shrink our capability to receive love from people. Pride causes us to crowd people out. Pride fills us with our self, and when we are full of self, there’s no room for anyone else. Pride makes me important alone, selfish, and lessens the importance of people. But, the bottom line of pride is it stops me from hearing the Spirit of God, stops me from loving God, receiving God’s love for me, and lessens the importance of God in my life.

 

Sermon Series by Pastor Delbert Young

Proverbs The Book Adventure in Wisdom - sermon series videos audios notes

PROVERBS THE BOOK ADVENTURE IN WISDOM – sermon series videos audios notes

Proverbs would be easier to teach if its wisdoms were collected into chapter topics, but it’s not how God designed Proverbs. Life doesn’t come at us in topics. Life hits us scattered. In a one-day period, you may need wisdom on finances, marriage, children, work, integrity, truth telling, etc. This is how Proverbs is laid out for us. The things you read today are actually things you may face today.

Seven Personalities of Evangelism

SEVEN PERSONALITIES OF EVANGELISM – FIRST THINGS FIRST PAGE – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

We take a long look at the different ways and styles Jesus and others reached the lost. One or more of these evangelism styles is within you and is your personal power to find the lost. This power style is given you by God. Can we imagine how God, with perfect love for his children, must feel every day when his children are lost? He desperately wants to find them. He needs to hear from them. This is what Jesus teaches us about Father God. Jesus is a picture of Father God’s heart (Joh 1:18). Jesus had an odd value. It was sinners were important to God. Jesus’ being with lost people was more than an event. It was a value.

The Sermon on the Mount

SERMON ON THE MOUNT – sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

Think of something you experienced about which you were anxiously excited. It was something you could hardly wait to experience. I remember years ago, as a young couple, my wife and I were to leave for vacation the next morning, but we couldn’t sleep we were so excited, so we left in the middle of the night. Have you got a similar memory you felt anxiously excited? Have you ever felt this type of anxious excitement about church? Likely not. But people were anxiously excited at the time of what we call The Sermon on the Mount. There was a buzz of anticipation about a young rabbi named Jesus of Nazareth. Let’s take a look at what he had to say about LIVING IN THE KINGDOM.

Simply Irresistible Kingdom

SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE KINGDOM – sermon series, sermon notes

When Jesus was on the earth, he was irresistible. People came from all around to see and hear him. They marveled at Jesus. People loved him or hated him, but they could not ignore him. They could not marginalize him. He was an irresistible person with an irresistible message and an irresistible personality. Jesus was a huge distraction to Pharisaical religion. It was because he was irresistible the religious system got rid of him. However, Jesus said if they did get rid of him he would be even more irresistible. He said, And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will DRAW all people unto me.

Trust God's Timing

TRUST GOD’S TIMING – sermon series, sermon videos, sermon audios, sermon notes

In life, we’re always waiting for something. Maybe you’re waiting and praying for a physical healing, or waiting for a special opportunity, or waiting for a goal to complete, or waiting for a wish to come true, or an argument to settle and a relationship to mend. Maybe you’re waiting for a dream to happen, or a solution to a problem you’re facing. When we pray, and it doesn’t happen as fast as we’d like, we can become frustrated and negative. In our impatience, we created messes, and when God doesn’t bless our mess, we turn away from God. We don’t realize there is a proper time. We must learn to trust God’s timing.

Weapons of Our Warfare. The apostle Paul instructs us there is a war. Not only is there a war. We are the participants in this war. This war is of maximum proportions. This war is a war far advanced from any of the thousands of wars ever taken place. This war does not only affect a few nations. It affects the entire globe. It affects ever person now upon this planet or who will ever exist upon this planet. It is a mighty war using advanced weapons. These weapons are unknown and hidden from common man. Only the New Testament believer has access to them. The sad part of this war is every person is doomed unless they use and activate the weapons of our warfare.

What Can You Do?WHAT CAN YOU DO? to help your church grow – sermon series, sermon video, sermon audio, sermon notes

As you probably know, “church” in America is changing. In fact, “church” around the planet is changing. Surveys show people have a greater interest in spiritual things than ever. However, they are less interested in traditional church than ever. Is this a bad thing? To me it’s a good thing. This is why I was born. To me, this is why our church exists. This should be our finest hour.

Wicked Women of the Bible 300x200WICKED WOMEN OF THE BIBLE – sermon series, sermon notes, sermon audio, sermon video

Wickedness began somewhere. Guess where and with which gender. I received flack about this series. I was called a chauvinist and several other enlightening adjectives. Interestingly, the negative comments were all by men. I’m not any of those things, but for anyone to think women cannot be as wicked as men then someone is delusional. The Bible is full of wicked women. I’ve only pointed out six in our series. These women will not cause you any problems, but if women you know relate to these women, they could.
