Thank You Thank You Rev. Silversides for making a highly unpopular statement that needed to be made regarding having a proper perspective of C.S. Lewis and his writings.
And in response to the previous comment, it is not necessary to present a balanced view of anyone who's "bad" teachings and beliefs are on a fundamental level, such as Lewis's denial of biblical inerrancy. When one's errors are of such an essential nature, whatever "good" he may teach is academic at best, or alluring toward damnable heresies at worst, as all teachings or teachers do that mix truth with fatal error.
Excellent This is a fascinating and engrossing message. Well done Rev. Silversides! The history of the Scottish Psalter and the extraordinary translation work from the Hebrew which went into it, is all to sadly a story which many Christians do not know or appreciate. The learned men of God who put so much academic and erudite expertise into this wee book, by God's grace, is a historic pleasure to behold indeed. Thank you David Silversides.
A well recommended sermon to hear!
Thank you! Thank you Rev. Silversides for this sermon, the doctrine of prayer has been on my mind lately. I was convicted by some points you made, and some other points brought me to think more deeply about how I should pray. Thank you.
Great Sermon! How depressing it would be if there were no antidote for the depravity & wickedness of our own heart & the inevitable punishment by a Holy God, but Thankfully God has provided Himself a Lamb in the Person of our Lord Jesus Christ so none need perish,all can be forgiven, Sadly, the vast majority reject God`s gracious offer of a new heart & go to that awful judgment unready & unprepared.
A very timely message from the Rev Silversides.
Very Relevant Sermon! This messages is a rebuke to modern Christianity, and relevant to late discussions about the New Calvinism and Worldliness, particularly addressed by Dr. Peter Masters in his excellent article: The Merger of Calivinism with Worldliness, and the upcoming Conference at the Spurgeon Tabernacle this July on similar subject.
Many sound sermons are often directed against the "culture" of the world, while being stark blind that the Church has adopted the same licentious culture to itself, to where--except for outward church attendance, testimony of the mouth, use of silly symbols and messages--there is hardly a visible difference between the church and the world, and that only temporarily on Sundays.
The modern taboos that attempt to hide under the slogan of "Christian liberty", like those of "lifestyle", "culture", Christian dress, music, money and material things, media interest, sports, language, etc...all could be suggested under this subject.
This is still the age of McChristianity and Facebook Christianity, even among the "reformed", and the fruits of this worldly "christianity" are evident, "turning the Grace of God into Licentiousness".
Teaching much needed today This is an excellent beginning for a Christian considering recreation. In our amusement oriented culture, we as Christians need to examine every part of our life to see if it is in submission to Christ's teaching. Thank you Pastor Silversides, we continue to lift you up in our prayers.
