Great Sermon! Had to come to listen to this again as recognizing my soul in unrest as I was pondering the state and condition of our country, the apparent indifference of friends on FB regarding their eternal destinies, the rejection of the Lord of heaven. Thank you for this pastoral word.
Great Sermon! Very good. Putting my name with indelible ink on that column on the right. If I am standing unshakably that God Is sovereign, then I must stand firmly that His Word that I depend on is sovereignly inerrant.
Great Sermon! Wow, I had no clue that there are so many points of thought on this subject. Very interested in hearing more on this death prior to the fall. On the one hand I have to say "man sure can make things complex." And on the other hand, I find all of this fascinating. But in the long run I have to say now I am glad I'm simple minded. Yet, very interesting where you lean toward on the thought of God creating the world to look older than it actually is. Very interesting. Eagerly anticipating next week's session.
Great Sermon! I listened to this again without the distractions of the first listening. I am humbled that I am able to hear these lectures proclaiming these lofty looks into God. I love how it makes me feel so small and He looms even larger in my mind then before hearing these lectures. What a grace to believe in the Trinity without question or difficulty even though I'm unable to grasp it. Thank you Dr. Thomas for making these available.
Great Sermon! Dense?? That's an understatement. I'm not sure I've been blessed with the intelligence to grasp this. I know I need to listen again. I gather that the first branching off on schools of thought on election is soveteignity equals election from the foundation of time vs grace equals election after the fall. But aren't both by grace? Not familiar with the two terms you used. Could be the sign off limits may apply to me. Could be i'm too dense!! Extremely interesting though. Will continue on to the next study and come back to this. The admirable way you struggle for the best word to present this does affirm the way you described in the beginning of attempting to peer into the edge of God's mind. Thank you Dr. Thomas.
Great Sermon! After I heard this sermon, Dr Ferguson, I immediately prayed for the Lord's richest blessings and protection over you, your family, and your ministry. TY for this tender sermon on the Lamb.
Great Sermon! Dr. Thomas, this is a very good sermon despite your desire to preach on Christmas, the glory and joy, the singing angels. I could so relate toward the end, as i'm sure everyone can, of not being able to wrap your mind around deceased unbelieving relatives and their eternal state. Makes my blood run cold is what you said. Very good way to put it. I become numb and overwhelmed if I ponder it and must push it away (particularly re my very beloved catholic grandmother). I too must run to Him and ponder His revealed benevolence despite anything and everything and His holy justice in His choices. Merry Christmas, Dr. Thomas.
Great Sermon! I came again a second time to this sermon seeking comfort for my soul in grief for the families in insurmountable grief in their losses of fri, dec 14. The sermon has not failed me. Thank you Bro Derek.
