Richard Bennett, Berean Beacon, On the Inquisition Greetings Denny. Thanks for the comment. When we listen to this message the music is very low and all the voices are easy to hear. You may want to adjust the way your system handles sound, as that may help, or listen using headphones. There may also be a difference in the way you systems handles the MP3 versus the video, so you may want to try both. I hope this helps. Also, this important documentary was provided to us by Richard Bennett of BereanBeacon.org, to place on SermonAudio, and we have no direct control of the content of the message itself.

Fantastic Sermon By Charles Spurgeon (Baptist)! Though this may be one of Charles Spurgeon's best sermons, it does contain some ill-advised praise for the usurper and "Judas of the Covenant" (i.e., Solemn League and Covenant) Oliver Cromwell. For more on Cromwell's true character, in an online debate, please see OLIVER CROMWELL at http://ow.ly/iyHDy or http://www.swrb.com/newslett/actualNLs/crom.htm. Here is a excerpt from this debate: "For a faithful look at Cromwell (who was unaffectionately know among the Presbyterian's of his day as the "late usurper"), and the dissimulation, covenant-breaking and tyranny (he executed Christopher Love a covenanted Presbyterian minister, jailed others, included Thomas Watson and generally scuttled the Presbyterian establishment [to his shame and dishonor]) of his military dictatorship, see the book noted below. ... Cromwell was used of the devil to accomplish things that he (i.e. Satan) could never have accomplished with the more obvious antichrist religions which were not pluralistic (e.g. Romanism, Episcopalianism, etc.). Satan had employed these persecuting beasts often up to this point in history, but now it was time for a new twist, and Cromwell fell right into the devil's trap."
Great Free Resources On Headcoverings! In accord with what Dr. MacArthur notes here, that headcoverings in Paul's day were a customary outward symbol (and not prescribed element of worship), which is also the position set forth in the Westminster standards, also see the detailed free study (in various free digital, print and audio formats), entitled, "THE CUSTOMARY PRACTICE OF HEADCOVERINGS: AN EXEGETICAL/HISTORICAL STUDY OF 1 CORINTHIANS 11:2-16 PRESENTED IN A SERIES OF LETTERS" by Pastor Greg L. Price at http://ow.ly/iifyF or http://www.puritandownloads.com/greg-l-price-on-headcoverings/. Review: "I must begin by thanking you for such a thorough study. The headcovering text of 1 Cor. 11 contains many difficult points and while many of our church fathers have briefly touched on the issue of customary headcovering, I am not aware of any work that has treated the subject with such clarity and breadth as yours. It is my opinion that your future book will become the definitive study on the subject. I am not aware of any error or point of disagreement by which I could take issue. I further believe the work to be grounded in scripture, faithful to the text (especially your work in Greek), and faithful to the views of the most respected church fathers." - http://ow.ly/iifyF
Covenanter Quote Completed, On Covenant Obligation Below is the end portion of the quote that was truncated in the comment above.
"Now, had it not been for this covenant, the extirpation of the Gibeonites would not have been imputed to Israel as a thing criminal; for they were comprehended in Canaanitish nations, which God had commanded them to root out."

Below is a related quote:
"Another instance in which posterity is recognized in covenant obligation is found in Joshua 9:15. This covenant was made between the children of Israel and the Gibeonites. Between four and five hundred years after that time, the children of Israel are visited with a very severe famine, in the days of David. 2 Sam. 21:1. And it is expressly declared by the Lord that, 'It is for Saul, and for his bloody house, because he slew the Gibeonites.' And at the same time, v. 2, that very covenant is recognized, and the breach of it is stated, as being the formal reason of the divine displeasure. Now, had it not been for this covenant, the extirpation of the Gibeonites would not have been imputed to Israel as a thi
Best Short Message On Family You May Ever Hear! This is a fantastic message on the family, marriage and raising children. Possibly the best we have ever heard on these topics! Don't miss it, as there are few talks this powerful and full of practical godliness -- that are packed into this short amount of time. Dr. Beeke has hit five grand slams in one game with this presentation. What juxtaposition this biblical information provides against the contemporary pagan and anti-Christian ideas on the family that permeate godless public education, godless psychology, godless psychiatry, godless philosophy, godless governments, godless media, godless music, godless families, godless "churches", godless religions, etc. If you want to learn what God teaches in the Bible about how to truly love your husband or your wife (whichever may be the case) and your children, this is one of the best places you could possibly start. If you are interested in further study of these vital topics, a good number of the Puritan authors and Puritan books cited in this message can be obtained through Dr. Beeke's Reformation Heritage Books at http://ow.ly/hFJCX and on our (SWRB) Puritan Hard Drive at http://ow.ly/fPY4o -- in case you would like to delve deeper into the source documents cited in this spectacular lesson on the Puritan family.

Biblical Reformation Politics & Civil Government! A much needed sermon in our day, when few know or understand what the Bible actually teaches on these important matters. For more free Reformation resources on POLITICS AND BIBLICAL CIVIL GOVERNMENT please see http://ow.ly/eEKWl. "Yet civil government has as its appointed end, so long as we live among men, to cherish and protect the outward worship of God, to defend sound doctrine of piety and the position of the church, to adjust our life to the society of men, to form our social behavior to civil righteousness, to reconcile us with one another, and to promote general peace and tranquility." - John Calvin, Institutes, IV, XX, Volume 2, p. 1,487, Westminster Press, 1960.

"I would to God that every holy day (including Christmas - ed.) whatsoever besides the Lord's day were abolished. That zeal which brought them first in, was without all warrant of the Word, and merely followed corrupt reason, forsooth to drive out the holy days of the pagans, as one nail drives out another. Those holy days have been so tainted with superstitions that I wonder we tremble not at their very names." - Martin Bucer, cited in William Ames, A Fresh Suit Against Human Ceremonies in God's Worship (1633), pp. 359-60.

Greg Price's â€śCovenant Theology & Its Implications, Foundations Of Biblical Interpretationâ€ť (free MP3), at http://ow.ly/dewol, is a good basic introduction to covenant theology. Price's â€śInfant Baptism as Covenant Keeping (Reformed Theology)â€ť (free MP3) at http://ow.ly/dewro, is also helpful in this respect.
Faithful Martyrs & Persecution in the Early Church In this sermon Dr. Dilday provides us with a powerful and moving message of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and Christian martyrdom in the early church, from which all hearers will greatly benefit. "It is no small condemnation of us to behold what an ardent zeal the holy martyrs had in the past. For as soon as a poor man of that time got so much as a little taste of the true knowledge of God, he did not hesitate to expose himself to the danger involved in confessing his faith. He would have preferred to be burned alive than to go so far as to commit some outward act of idolatry," wrote John Calvin.

Biblical Defense of Creation In Six Literal Days Nice job Brian!
"The idea of millions of years came from the belief that the fossil record was built up over a long time. As soon as people allow for millions of years, they allow for the fossil record to be millions of years old. This creates an insurmountable problem regarding the gospel. The fossil record consists of the death of billions of creatures...
The Bible is adamant though, that death, disease, and suffering came into the world as a result of sin. God instituted death and bloodshed because of sin so man could be redeemed. As soon as Christians allow for death, suffering, and disease before sin, then the whole foundations of the message of the Cross and the Atonement have been destroyed. The doctrine of original sin, then, is totally undermined.
If there were death, disease, and suffering before Adam rebelledâ€”then what did sin do to the world? What does Paul mean in Romans 8 when he says the whole of creation groans in pain because of the Curse? How can all things be restored in the future to no more death and suffering, unless the beginning was also free of death and suffering? The whole message of the gospel falls apart if one allows millions of years for the creation of the world."

Popery Is A Novelty. Protestantism Is Apostolic! TIN: Please see "Popery is a Novelty; and the Protestants' Religion Was Not Only Before Luther, But the Same that Was Taught by Christ and His Apostles by Thomas Doolittle" at http://ow.ly/8tMxn. Also look up Richard Bennett on Sermonaudio. Richard is a former Roman Catholic priest who is now a Protestant preacher, and he answers your question in a number of his messages. For example, "The Early Church & A History of Justification, Faithfulness, Apostasy & Antichrist," at http://www.sermonaudio.com/go/56389, "The Papal Claim to the Keys of the Apostle Peter," at http://www.sermonaudio.com/go/56390, and "Biblical Mary and Roman Catholic Tradition" at http://www.sermonaudio.com/go/56391, would be a good places to start.
