Excellent introduction to Theonomy! I really enjoyed this Sermon. Pastor Morecraft proves from scripture that the Bible is sufficient for Politics and that the law of God (both tables) should be enforced by all nations. Pastor Morecraft also spends some time defending John Calvinâ€™s view that the civil magistrate is the most holy of the callings of Man which proves the necessity of a Godly civil magistrate. All in all, this sermon was an excellent introduction to Reformed Presbyterian Theonomy.
Great Sermon! We would encourage anyone to get a copy of the audio of the Sufficiency of Scripture conference that Mr Morecraft refers to. It should be available at the ncfic website or vision forum. It was a gathering of fantastic speakers with a clear vision of victory for their families, churches and the church as a whole!
Great Sermon! Dear Pastor, Thank you for your wonderful message. I heard a man of God preaching indeed. But it was more than a man...I heard the voice of God that breaks the cedars...I heard the heart beat of the Father...I felt the hot tears of Christ over Jerusalem and the nations. God has granted you the anointing that destroys all yokes of bondage. I am a roumanian by birth, american citizen now, medical doctor by profession; but now in full time ministry as a missionary pastor in Nigeria. The no. one enemy we have to pray against here is the wicked, evil spirit of religion. It makes people to like to go to church but never change, never repent; they hate the cross of Christ and refuse to pay the sacrifice of praising the Lord Jesus. They are in high ecclesiastic positions and persecute true believers. I heard your voice thru the internet. I received a fresh dose of faith and courage. I am not alone and you are not alone. The Lord knows those who are His. You are right because the Bible is right: God has the last say in all human affairs. May God bless you, your family and ministry, may He strengthen you to please Him to the end.
Love in Christ alone, Lia Leigh.
Life of Vermigli. The message treats only the life of Pietro Martire Vermigli. His life and ministry. I like these biographies and I consider important for us to know the Reformation history and figures.
Excellent! The view of the Council of Trent on justification. And the view of Calvin on justification. It is a legal declaration by a Judge in the heavenly courtroom. Signification of imputation explained.
Friend and successor of Calvin. Good and useful presentation of the life and ministry of Beza; his role in the development of the French Reformed church, his views on the Nicodemites and his views on the right to oppose idolatrous kings.
Great Sermon! FANTASTIC! Great exegesis, great application. Although it made up a minor part of the entire message, I appreciated the exposition of Ezekiel 11.
The sermon was given in 2003. I just heard this in 2009 when the culture has become so much worse.
God gave His Church these men. Useful presentation of the two reformers, Farel and Bucer and their relation to Calvin. More space is given to Bucer, especially on his book "De Regni Christi", but also on his influence on the English Reformation. And Bucer on evangelism and world mission.
A much needed message for today This is a message that declares in detail, what the professing Christian must do in the event of being confronted with tyrany.
A hearty well done to Dr. Joe Morecraft!!
Worth hearing all of these I have been listening to this series for some time, but this one was so intriguing I just had to call attention to it. What a sorry thing is wrought by ambition. The competition for the throne, the suppression of the greatest teaching since the apostles - i.e. the Puritans - in unrighteousness... Great background information as I prepare a Sunday School on the Puritans. Doubtless the persecutions these godly men faced added to their ability to dissect the Christian heart as has hardly been equaled.
