Should Be Heard By All Preachers The traditional reformed view of this highly disputed passage, Romans 7, has permeated our entire theology. If it's correct, then we have nothing to fear. If it's incorrect, then rather than doing good, it could be doing untold damage to millions. Here Charles Leiter respectfully analyses the traditional reformed view and states why he believes it is flawed and why another view should be adopted. It's an extremely enjoyable listen, intellectually stimulating and very useful in the Christian life and your view of yourself in Christ. Every teacher of the word, or serious Bible study, ought to hear this. Could change your life.
Such a Pleasure This message was a real pleasure to listen to. Keith recounts how he was converted and what advice was burned into his heart and mind from that moment onwards by an extremely godly man who helped him come to Christ. Here he shares that advice and considers it to be the most important advice any Christian, new or old, could ever hear. He's delivered this kind of message multitudes of times and it's always a joy to listen to. It's also a remarkably funny message, showing Keith's wonderful sense of humour. All the way through, you feel this is a man whom God has saved and has filled to overflowing with His Spirit. Thank God for Keith Daniel. This message will make you want to get into the Bible for yourself!
What a sermon I do thank God for Paul Washer. This is an amazing message, one of the most useful messages I've heard from anyone in a long while. In fact, something Paul laboured part way through was a direct answer to my pleading with God that very day. Paul criticises himself in this message for not really dealing properly with John 15:1, saying he doesn't have the gifts of a lot of expository preachers. All I can say is I was very encouraged to get spiritual power from Christ alone by listening to this message. Unless I'm mistaken, that is precisely what John 15, especially the first verse, is all about. This is Bible teaching at its best, preached thank God in the power of God.
Life Changing What an amazing sermon on Regeneration and the heart of self denial! Truly life changing. I listened to it 6 years ago and it changed my life then. I listened to it today and it's transformed my mind all over again. Glory to God!
Love it I love that Spurgeon always preached as if the worst person in all the world could have complete forgiveness in Christ. He was revolutionary and this kind of preaching on God's free love is full of meditation.
Thank you I listened to this sermon twice before getting married. All I can say is thank you so much. You don't know how many times I've apologised as a result of hearing your words in the back of my head: 'Do not be harsh with her! You cannot give me one good reason to ever be harsh with your wife!'
Incredible I'm just amazed that a sermon this old and not even preached by the man who originally preached it is still so popular and being used so much by God. Behold the power of God! And the influence of prayer! It's said that Jonathan Edwards spent all week praying for this sermon before he preached it - he would say, 'Lord, stamp eternity on my eyeballs!' I bet Edwards never imagined the Lord would still be using this sermon hundreds of years later!! What an encouragement!
True Quality On holiday recently I made my way through all 5 of John MacArthur's sermons on 1 Timothy 4:6-16 from his website. These are extremely rich and helpful studies and very much worth your time, especially if you are in ministry or are thinking of going into ministry.
Staggeringly Powerful As sharp and shocking a sermon as any I've read by Spurgeon. Incredibly simple, totally fixed to the text in Jonah and perfect for preaching to sleepy saints and sinners. His arguments are amongst his strongest.
I'm not convinced though that Christians should be seeking to tell the gospel at every opportunity, come what may, so that we won't be guilty of the blood of others. In the New Testament, the emphasis seems to be a lot, dare I say it, more relaxed, or winsome. In the New Testament, there seems to be a lot more emphasis for Christians to shine their loving lives before others (Matthew 5:16), living godly lives (1 Peter 2:16) and, when opportunity comes, when we are asked about it, giving a reason for the hope we have (1 Peter 3:15). I'm concerned that someone who takes to heart everything Spurgeon has said will be moved to be very foolish and put people off Christ. It's good to be zealous, and to preach zealously in a pulpit. But I don't think your everyday Christian attitude should be, 'I'd better tell so and so about the gospel and do so quick, or else I'll be guilty of their soul'. I think if we think like that we'll cause more harm than good. What do you think?
A Really Excellent Sermon This is the best message I've heard on the issue of the 'New Perspectives on Paul'. Joe Morecraft III clearly understands the issues involved and communicates them very simply. He is extremely passionate about the gospel and it's a joy to listen to him.
Very Captivating This is perhaps Keith's most famous message. Keith begins this message by quoting the entire Sermon on the Mount word for word, for 25 minutes, with understanding, clarity and passion.
After that, he spends about 35 minutes expounding Matthew 5:13 - "You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, it's no longer good for anything, but to be cast out and trampled underfoot by people". To do this, he goes through the entire Sermon on the Mount, passage by passage, showing how it all relates to us being the salt of the earth, the world's protection. His main point is Christ's main point: if we were as godly as we should be, our nations would be streaming to God in their masses. Our example is the thing that matters most.
This is God Speaking ... I've listened to a good number of Keith Daniel sermons now. I think this is a real treasure. He speaks on an extremely neglected topic, that of waiting on God, being still in faith and waiting for God to come to your aid, as you sit in the secret place and meditate on His word and pray. It was a different delivery to Keith's usual method - that of expressing himself loudly. Though I enjoy his usual delivery of expressive power and passion, this was equally powerful and passionate, even though he just spoke conversationally the whole time during the 2 hour sermon.
He quotes a huge amount of Scripture and enforces the point that the Secret Place is where God does His work - when we wait in faith on God, in the school of God. Life throws a lot of things at us and they're all tests. God expects us to pass the tests and the way to pass is to be still and wait on Him.
Inspiring! This was an inspiring message on prayer. The beginning when he recited from Ephesians 6 was thoroughly gripping and is the best reading I've probably ever heard of the Scriptures publicly. His exposition of the aspect of prayer wasn't hugely focused on the text. Instead, he brought gripping illustrations and stories to teach on the power of prayer. It was a captivating and motivating sermon and well worth a listen. One of Keith Daniel's main strengths, amongst others, is that it is impossible to listen to a message by him without understanding exactly, exactly what he's saying. You never really need to hear the same message by him twice. That's a rare gift - extreme clarity.
