The Sermon Subtitle Is Misleading Why is the sermon subtitle noted as "Richard Baxter on Dating"? Richard Baxter was not mentioned once in this sermon on Puritan courtship, nor were Puritan views on dating or courtship even cited in the sermon. While the sermon has some good points, I was a little let down by the misleading subtitle.
Great lessons. A combination of many causes for spiritual depression. Some of which are dealt with in this life, but we will escape all at the resurrection. We are taught to look beyond this world and this life for hope.
Great lesson. Yes, we have this tendency of thinking that we deserve to be happy. And when we have problems we start to be angry - at others, at life or at God. And then we fall into depression. But we deserve only hell and all good things we have are the blessings of God in His grace.
Great encouragement. Very encouraging message. We are never useless to God. Hw is working in us and through us as long as we are here. He has a calling for us and He takes pleasure is making us fellow-workers with Him.
Great Message and very Accessible Michael Phillips is a talented speaker. This message proves it. He preaches to children and to adults on this very solemn topic and it packs a punch! His explanation of the passage is very good and the relevance for children and their parents is made obvious and clear. Not many men would be bold enough to speak this frankly to children whilst their parents are present. And not many men would speak to the parents about their parenting skills with the children present. Excellent, courageous and I'm sure God has used it wonderfully behind the scenes.
Excellent and Stimulating Lecture This was a really good lecture. It was full of relevant information and delivered in a passionate manner. Michael Phillips is a very gifted Church historian and presents Church history in a wonderfully exciting way. Praise God for him! This one of Wycliffe is especially helpful because there is so little known about this mighty man of God. Yet it sounds as though this man was as vital to the Reformation as Luther and Calvin.
