Great Sermon! Listened to this message some weeks ago and am still finding delight in it. Coppes is unique in all the questions he asks of a passage, and all the light he brings forth! Thanks so much!
Great Sermon! Very powerful message, Robby. This has been one of my favorite Psalms, yet you brought out more of its depth to me -- AND with such quiet power. Loved the fruit of your sermonic labors. Very good scriptural reasoning. Amen!
The fatal flaw in this effort to defend marriage lies in its secularism. They're trying to use human opinion, statistics, logic, etc. But God is jealous for HIS ORIGINAL AUTHORITY. Until we base our arguments, case, etc on "Thus Sayeth the Lord!" (Ie the Bible) God will not prosper our effort. But this is precisely what evangelicalism (much less conservatism) is unwilling to do. God is mocking is for our timidity. I fear even the "reformed" church is fearful of speaking to the social issues based on God's Word. Let us fearlessly begin to speak boldly on the basis of God's word! We may have to suffer for righteousness, but we would begin to win some of these battles. God's name would be involved in the struggle!
