One message in an exposition series Anyone who listens to any of the expositions I have uploaded on SermonAudio will know that I take the Scripture from start to finish one passage at a time. I do not always find them comfortable to preach, like much of Ezekiel, but I find them necessary. My Bibles are Nestle-Arland, Novum Testamentum Graece, 27th ed. and Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia; so all translations are my own for good or for bad. I do not know what any person needs at one point in their lives, but I do know that the whole of Scripture is able to make us wise to salvation and to grow in the full-knowledge of God and Christ. So, listen to that which makes you uncomfortable at times, but know that the intent of my preaching is to bring Glory to God and Christ that you might know Him completely.
Soli Deo Gloria
Relevant, needed Sermon! Lately the subject of slavery has brought much commotion and controversy within the SBC churches at a MLK50 Conference. Some prominant pastors and leaders are asserting that there should be a historic racial resentfulness because of slavery even within the church, calling all white Christians to repent for the past, and is even distorting gospel theology! The Devil is at work dividing because the Scripture is being ignored as the Only rule of faith and obedience instead of men's philosophies.
Here is straightforward exposition on how among Christians the master-slave relationship was not abolished nor was resentfulness or rebellion to be tolerated or encouraged by Christian slaves for their masters. Yet today a movement is growing that encourages resentful strife from blacks toward whites because of past slavery, within the church, contrary to this very scripture! The sermon also speaks to how Marxist class warfare philosophy is influencing the church from culture.
