Great Sermon! Excellent reading of the incomparable Edwards. A very different spirit from our modern lukewarm, worldly, unholy Evangelicalism. Refreshing and edifying!

What's Missing in Modern Christianity Edwards proves that "without holiness no man shall see the Lord" but also that true "love (charity, 1 Cor. 13) is the SAME thing" (says he) as holiness, "for it includes the love of God", who is holy and hates sin perfectly. He shows God's law is the standard of holiness, which fulfills love to God and others, which today's false 'love' hates (as if it were bad), contrary to Psalm 119 where David *delighted in and loved God's law*. He concludes this is the identifying mark of a true Christian--holiness, mentioning "strictness" of living, which is true love to God--and no other! He shows this ONLY is the way of *true and eternal happiness*. What a refreshing contrast to today's Christianity!
Here the Sovereignty of God and the Responsibility of Man meet. Here the "Christian lifestyle" of *true justification* (salvation) is distinguished and the (now neglected or confused) *doctrine of sanctification* strongly asserted against today's heresies, from antinomian evangelicalism to New Calvinism, and against all false cries of "legalism" (as if we are free to sin and transgress the Moral Law in the 10 Commandments).
Look at the stats: People are 'pressing in to hear' this historical, internet sermon because of its awakening power, clarity and rarity in pulpits today.

Great Sermon! I thought this was one the most thought provoking sermons that I have ever heard. I have sent it to others in hopes that they would get the same overwhelming and magistic view of God. Ann

James Benedict (9/28/2002)
You cant get to heaven another way! This is so convicting and helps us to realise the road is often tough but holiness is our goal. Edwards superior preaching is evident here. Sin can't slip in some door or it wouldnt be God holy heaven. Dont miss this and ALL of Edwards sermons. James
JONATHAN EDWARDS was born on October 5, 1703, in East Windsor, Connecticut, into a Puritan evangelical household. His childhood education as well as his undergraduate years (1716-1720) and graduate studies (1721-1722) at Yale College immersed him not only in the most current thought...
