Great Sermon! This message was originally delivered at Trinity Ministerial Academy in NJ on Oct. 18th, 1994 (two days before the birth of my daughter). Pastor Hughes was preaching at a Pastors Conference and my pastor and a few of the men at our church decided to drive from Long Island to NJ that afternoon, with no previous planning. We jumped in the church van and got there in time to hear this glorious gospel message. I wept then and I still weep today every time I listen to it. This past week I made several copies of this sermon and gave it to several brothers. They all wept with sadness and joy. The Lord has been pleased to use this message for the good of many of His children. May He receive all the praise!!
A challenging message. We were part of Erroll's congregation many years ago and it's good to note that at the time of the delivery of this message he had lost none of the old fire. What need we have today of genuine revival.
Great Sermon! Christians can believe in evolution if they want. But thats not what the majority of the scientific establishment mean when they say evolution. They mean a theory that has no purpose and that does not include God.
Interesting! Will this lecture be available online, by podcast, or SermonAudio for those unable to attend? It should be made available somehow because there are many who cannot possibly attend.
Will this exchange be limited or will the subject of slavery also be included in this "exchange" lecture? The views of Hodge, Thornwell (Who wrote The Church and Slavery), and Dabney all recognized the historic view contrary to most reformed pastors and churches today, especially New Calvinists (e.g. Piper) who make the historic view a virtual heresy, contrary to these better theologians.
And didn't Charles Hodge actually call R.L. Dabney "America's greatest theologian"? It seems like the defenders of orthodoxy were largely in the South.
Great man of God. Very good and helpful introduction to the life and ministry of a Baptist preacher about who I knew almost nothing. God gave great man to His church is past times - and we have what to learn from them and what to immitate in tehm.
Power of the Spirit. Only the Spirit of God can illuminate sinners and regenerate. We are total dependent on His working. We have to pray for His filling and His working, and to not depend on ourselves or on methods in evangelism.
Great Sermon! I highly recommend this sermon! The translation and exposition of these Psalms is edifying and encouraging especially for those struggling in some difficult providence. What a great God who causes us to thirst for him, by leading us into dry places for a time, all so that he might lavish on us his love and grace and so show us his all surpassing greatness.
Need for revelation. A message about the futility of seeking to explain God or life without starting from the revelation God gave about Himself. We can know God only from what He revealed about Himself, not from the reason of fallen men.
