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.
Great Advent Sermon! The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. Are there any more glorious words than this? Thank you for this sermon Bro. Sinclair. The incarnation of the God. I desire to be more and more staggered by this Truth. Jesus Christ, Eternal Word. My Lord and my God. How can it be that He came for me.
Changed topic - not on Romans 6 Dr. Ferguson changed the sermon at the last minute. So this sermon is not on the book of Romans 6. He decided to talk about the importance of our relationship and influence on children.
Fantastic Intellectual Insights You are dealing with topics that most American churches seem to ignore. I love this sermon. "being obscure is good" is so opposed to our Facebook and Twitter numbers generation where popularity is exalted. Thanks for such an amazingly wonderful sermon.
Great Sermon! Magnificent! Brilliant! I've listened to it twice now and know I will more times taking notes. Some years back in His grace He brought me to a place to study His attributes and it was a turning point for me in my knowledge of Him and in my walk with Him. This sermon makes my soul soar. (The middle knowledge stuff is foreign to me but I don't feel the need to ponder it). Thank you for this magnificent sermon and for this series.
Great Sermon! Staggered....an appropriate word for this message! I have learned that my "god" is way too small, and that I am much smaller than I ever imagined! I have come away with my God much, much BIGGER, and I even smaller. I am almost afraid to attend these sessions...I have been given much, so very much in my life about God, Jesus and His Kingdom, His purposes and His plans, His heart and desires for me......I am so ashamed that I have given Him so little in return. Thanks to First Presbyterian and its leaders, I am seeing Him more clearly and loving Him more dearly. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
