The Old Path Fortner states "Our hearts sincerity will not atone for sin. Your hearts sincerity will not satisfy Divine Justice. You must have an alter of sacrifice by which justice has been satisfied to find acceptance with God and that is Christ the Lord."
It seems he is saying here it is not about us or our efforts but rather about God and his sacrifice that we look to. Grace rather than works.
Great message Truly edifying. If salvation could be obtained strictly under the natural hearing of the truth, then this sermon would be "required hearing" for all who were serious about their own. Yet not even a sermon of this magnitude will enable a dead sinner to hear without the grace of God. To Him be the glory.
Oh, What A Great Sermon! Thank you, Pastor Byrd, for this wonderful message to my heart concerning the power, glory and dominion of our great God. Let the mighty ones rattle their bows and sabers. Our God has won the battle and, praise His Holy Name, every knee shall bow and confess that JESUS is LORD! The enemy appears to have great power, but he has NO power at all, except the power our LORD gives him for a season. And the power God gives to evildoers is only for the glory of God and the saving of His people. Oh, how great is our God! How great!
Great Book! Very well-written, and most importantly, scripturally accurate, discription of the true Church of God. Thank you Pastor Fortner for your faithfullness to the word of God, and your committment to proclaim it without apology!
Great Sermon! This is another great sermon wherein it was presented how a person has to know what that inbred sin rendered him dead and hopeless without hearing and believing that wonderful gospel accomplished work of Christ.
God Reigns We see the modern "church" implore to "Come to Jesus" by walking up the aisle and then when the going gets tough just as eagerly send us to the "Christian Counselor. Fortner rightly points out how guilty we are as believers to show the same lack of faith in the promises of God's Word which is the true rock which we can stand on in our greatest trials.
