Sermon:
Confused By Christianity
Trevor Hammack

“ Outstanding! ”
Pastor Hammack, This is one of the most significant messages on SermonAudio. Why are almost all Christians ignorant not only of church history, but also their Bibles and have never even attempted to read through them? Thank you for provoking us to learn and grow in the things of God!

“ Great Sermon! ”
While reading Dr. Russell D. Moore's article, "Where Have All the Presbyterians Gone?" I wondered: Where are they? Dr. Moore is a leader in the 16 million-strong and conservative Southern Baptist Convention with six seminaries. My concern is that of the Presbyterians, almost 3 million are part of the PCUSA which as of 2011 is ordaining openly-homosexual clergy. This makes the PCUSA a post-Christian organization. Therefore, there are only 380,000 between the largest remaining faithful OPC and PCA denominations and only one remaining denominational seminary, Covenant, controlled by them. And some Covenant professors now even endorse evolution? What will save orthodox Presbyterianism? [http://www.opc.org/qa.html?question_id=439]

Does this "Breaking News" blog have a process to validate attribution?

If not, why should we presume that the "Name or Alias" matches the writer from one Comment to another?

1. I only know of the biblical church councils. (What do you think of the council of trent or the diet of worms?)
1. Council of Carthage (AD 397) defined the canon:

"Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua son of Nun, Judges, Ruth, 4 books of Kingdoms, 2 books of Chronicles, Job, the Davidic Psalter, 5 books of Solomon, 12 books of Prophets, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Ezekiel, Tobias, Judith, Esther, 2 books of Ezra, 2 books of Maccabees, and in the New Testament: 4 books of Gospels, 1 book of Acts of the Apostles, 13 letters of the Apostle Paul, 1 letter of his to the Hebrews, 2 of Peter, 3 of John, 1 of James, 1 of Jude, and one book of the Apocalypse of John."

The Geneva Bible (c 1560) contains the Apocrypha.

The Bishops' Bible (c 1568) contains the Apocrypha.

King James and the 54 Bible scholars on six translation committees would have been intimately familiar with the Council of Carthage (AD 397), Geneva Bible and Bishops' Bible, thus they authorized inclusion of the Apocrypha books in the 1611 AV.

And who are these "authorised church councils" you keep talking about?
Jim Strawman, according to the wiki article you love so much, and which you recommended me to read, the King James Bible never was authorised.
Now isn't that good news!
Aren't the remaining "authorized Church Councils" merely focus groups at Zondervan, Thomas Nelson, etc?

What prevents a publisher from further breaking rank by publishing a 64-book Bible (66-books less Leviticus and 1 Corinthians) -- marketing it as a family Bible?

The Apocrypha is completely unnecessary except if you are a Roman Catholic and worship relics and dead people and are deeply into heresy.
Doesn't L2's line of reasoning lead to this type of scenario?:

"Suppose a poll finds that 6 of 10 Evangelicals approve of same-sex marriage. Do these individuals then lobby today's equivalent of the "1825 British and Foreign Bible Society" stating that Leviticus and 1 Corinthians (which state that homosexuality is a sin) contain error and must be removed from the Bible canon? What prevents political correctness from removing another book from The Holy Bible?"

If we collectively lobby (an authorized Church Council) for removal of books we don't like/agree with, which books will be left?

You have misquoted the Scripture...
Is Church Attendance Necessary?:

"[A] genuine believer will not lose his or her salvation by failing to go to church."

-Leading Christian apologist, author and host of the "Bible Answer Man" broadcast,
Hank Hanegraaff

Sadly, hasn't this become Evangelicalism's default position?

Since you don't have to go to church, and you can get most of it online (i.e., preaching, music, fellowship), why spend three years and $1000s on Seminary?

"Do not forsake the gathering of the called out ones."

Must this be face-to-face or may it be virtual?

Many would argue that this forum, for example, is a gathering of the faithful.

‘The supernatural power involved in the process of inspiration, and in the result of inspiration, was exerted only in the original production of the sixty-six Canonical books of the Bible (2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Peter 3:15-16).’
Curious: Why does the TBS downgrade the number of AV books "Authorized to be read in Churches" from 73 to 66? Who gave it that authority?

They are defacing the King's official imprimatur.

So, your answer is convenience. Shallow Christianity that can be content without fellowhip face to face and without a man ((not a machine) to care for their souls.
It still doesn't answer my question. How has it come to this? Whose fault is it. If I'm not mistaken these great messages on audio are preached in congregations each week. Yet it is some of their flock who are now sitting home listening to someone else's minister.
There is more to this, than a new generation.
Top 3 Reasons for Church:
(1.) Sermon.
(2.) Lord's Supper.
(3.) Fellowship.

Substitute:
(1,) SermonAudio.com, etc.
(2.) Offered monthly (Low relevance).
(3.) Elk's, Lion's, Sunday AM at Starbuck's.

Is there another top reason?

Simply because it has the stamp of the King of kings and Lord of lords. It is his word, after all.
That's what they thought about the "Adulterer's Bible" until someone bought and read it: "Thou shalt commit adultery."

Not the best.

Every jot and tittle matter.

Why do you think that is, the popularity of Sermon Audio and the decline of desire for the preached word?
Just curious.
If you can listen to 1000s of the world's best preachers 24/7, on any topic, from your hand-held on SermonAudio.com (which you can), then doesn't this debase your local pastor's Sunday sermon?

Now that the preached word and music are digitized and accessible to anyone totally free, what's motivating folks to attend a weekly church service? Perhaps it's an occasional Lord's Supper or a little fellowship.

Hasn't digital media, inadvertently, unplugged the Evangelical church?

I'm being sarcastic but what about a top 40 for preachers!
You're there. Look at the left column: "Top Sermons".

Perhaps the Sunday sermon is becoming irrelevant when you can hear the best on SermonAudio.com!

Whats MISSING in the New Bibles

“ Which English Bible May Be Printed? ”
In the Catholic Church an imprimatur (from Latin, "let it be printed") is an official declaration by a Church authority that a book (e.g., an English Bible translation) or other printed work is doctrinally correct and may be published. Accordingly, what English translation of the Bible is doctrinally correct, has an imprimatur by a Church authority and may be printed? Thanks for your message!

Why Kids Kill

“ Disturbing Trends ”
Thank you for your prayer. "Dr. Nicholi says, "[Modern sinful trends will yield the following:] First, the quality of family life will continue to deteriorate producing a society with a higher incidence of mental illness than ever before. 95% of our hospital beds may be taken up by mentally ill patients. This illness will be characterized by a lack of self-control. We can expect the assassination of people in authority to be frequent occurrences. Crimes of violence will increase, even those within the family. The suicide rate will rise. As sexuality becomes more and more unlimited and separated from family and emotional commitment, the deadening effect will cause more bizarre experimentation and wide-spread perversion." A frankly frightening picture and we are watching it being painted right before our very eyes." -Dr. Armand M Nicholi Jr, Harvard Medical School clinical psychiatrist as quoted by Dr. John MacArthur.

“ Outstanding! ”
“Divorce puts a bullet in the head of the family.” -Leading Christian broadcaster, author and OPC Pastor, Rev. Kevin Swanson. Who will stop this scandal? We moderns need a fundamental reset in our unbiblical thinking on divorce. This sermon helps to do just that.

No particular issue with Rap if music is biblical and musicians are not front-and-center during worship.

Regardless of musical genre, if musicians are located in the balcony or off to the side -- why not let this be the test for retaining or discarding music?

Otherwise, won't beat, melody and lyric be an endless argument?

How did CC get to this juncture?

In concord with Scripture, thankfully, the CC is apparently returning to the old paths:

Tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered."
