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.
Biblical. The sermon is 1 hour long, followed by Q/A session. We must preach a whole Christ to the whole man. We must be honest in our evangelism, as Christ was, telling the people not only their rights in the Christian life, but also their responsibilities and the hardness of it.
Restoration. Here there are 2 messages connected: the first covers the first 6 chapters of the prophecy of Zechariah, the second the rest of the book. The great message of God's forgiveness and restoration.
