Great Sermon! This sermon is as close to a masterpiece of preaching as I ever known. The preacher takes psalm 13, how long o LORD, and through it gets into our heads, our real heads, where we are constantly wondering the exact same thing, but feeling that such questions are not a part of faith in God. The preacher says: God can take your pungent questioning. Have a raging row with God, and see that God is GOOD!!! I recommend this sermon to anyone who feels untouched by sappy sweet phony faith, anyone who longs for a real love relationship with God!!!!
Great Sermon! If there were such a thing as playing cards with preachersâ€™ faces and statistics on them, like baseball cards, only for preachers and not baseball players, I think I would never be willing to trade a Gerard Hemmings card away for any other preacher card. And this sermon is a good example why!!!
Great Sermon! This sermon is a highly effective description of the role of sin in the destruction of the human soul. The story of David and his sin is particularly powerful by way of illustration. This sermonâ€™s best part however is itâ€™s encouragement based on the fact that JESUS SAVES US FROM OUR SINS!!
Great Sermon! How about a clear command to, "avoid all appearance of evil?" Using your examples... Doesn't eating meat sacrificed to idols have APPEARANCE of evil? I am not saying it is evil. It however definitely has appearance of evil! So case solved! Without compromise! Same thing with public education, worldly/rock or Christian music etc. Just Look at the curriculum and look at the lyrics.... Solved! Isn't there APPEARANCE of evil?? You are wrong, sir. Very wrong. No. There is no Liberty when we are told to avoid appearance of evil. Otherwise you are advocating circumventing the command to avoid all appearance of evil. His can you speak, but not know this command? Are you advocating disobedience and evil self-will in the name of the lord?
Very Sanctifying, and humbling Don't be dissatisfied with where God has put you, or what God has given you, but be content in all things. If recognition has not been given to you, or position, be content no matter what. Do not be envious of other brothers. The anger Envy is a greater sin than what sins you see in them. Be glad for them. Rejoice with them. Being content though you expected more, is a very humbling doctrine.
