Hard to follow I am really interested in hearing/reading McCheyne's sermons, but the audio reading of the sermons is very fast (at 1.0; and 0.5 leaves it unbearably slow). I think that such a great man's works should not be read so hastily, and would like to see an audio preparation done whole heartedly and professionally.
Great Sermon! I am fairly new to Puritan history and writings. This sermon introduced me to the Puritan Sibbes, and I am excited to learn of him. I am very careful and extremely scrupulous about what preachers I listen to, and Dr. Beeke is one who I recommend. I have been learning a lot of helpful spiritual things from his sermons. He does not get you caught up in debates and asserting opinions contrary to established Puritan history, as I have found one or two other sermonaudio preachers to do, when looking up Puritan sermons. Dr. Beeke and Paul Washer are my favorite sermon audio preachers--because their preaching leaves me edified and more focused on Christ and His word.
Eye opening Wow, great listen! This sermon is a telling of the Puritan Christians, and I am really glad to have learned about them. This sermon is also a useful resource for early American history and for studying the work of God in the deeper beginnings of our country.
For those in trials A good sermon for Christians who are suffering to the point of their faith in God really being weathered. The pastor comes off as an amiable person and I appreciated the points he brings up, such as God's sovereignty and trusting God based upon what we know about His character; trusting as such when in the face of extreme difficulties or hard questions.
Great Sermon! This preacher mentioned a puritan named Joseph carrol (?) who spent decades on the book of Job. I tried to find his writings but could not. I would be very interested if this preacher could do a sermon on those Job sermons, or someone could post a comment on how to access those Carrol sermons. I would love to read his stuff.
Very helpful This sermon may be long but it is really worth every minute. Don't walk away from this half-way; it is important to hear the entire message.
I really appreciated Paul's remarks about being persecuted for righteousness sake. The same exact scenario happened to me. During my college years I worked at an E-Free Bible camp that hires unconverted "Christians" as counselors. I remember going to one of their houses on our off day to watch a movie and a worldly counselor wanted to watch some movie about a magician. Right away I was really bothered by it and got up and said "Im sorry but I just cant watch this." And went to another room and sat by myself until the movie was over. That guy who suggested the movie was so angry. He really gave me a hard time the rest of the summer, criticizing me and making fun of me.
Paul's sermons are helpful to me and I highly recommend them.
