Charity Series This narration is a continuation of the book already commenced on SermonAudio, SID=102072056182: SID=102072057110: SID=102072057501 I have just discovered the 2 volume set of the sermons of Jonathan Edwards Jr. 1745-1801 I look forward to narrating some of those sermons in the future. T M S. www.puritanaudiobooks.com Thanks once again for the diligent labors of S W R B. Historical note: it has been pointed out that Edwards famous "Sinners" sermon was not the great sermon in his own congregation that it was in Enfield CT. But revival came to his congregation during the preaching of these sermons on 1 Cor. 13
Great Study Thank you Brother Bennett for taking a very bold stand for the truth. I agree with Louis about the U.S.A. I live in cold, liberal, clueless MN. We are a country of "ever learning but never coming to the truth" I invited a co-worker to church and he told me if he walked into a church the holy water would boil and a lightning bolt would fall from heaven. This prompted me to do further study on the catholic church and was astonished at the power and control it has had through the ages. I have been set free from the deception of the health and wealth gospel with ministers who remind the church not to question "God's anointed" and live lives of extravagant material excess unquestioned. The true gospel of Jesus Christ brings glory to GOD alone and humbles, not exalts man. Thank you again.
Richard Bennett, Berean Beacon, On the Inquisition Greetings Denny. Thanks for the comment. When we listen to this message the music is very low and all the voices are easy to hear. You may want to adjust the way your system handles sound, as that may help, or listen using headphones. There may also be a difference in the way you systems handles the MP3 versus the video, so you may want to try both. I hope this helps. Also, this important documentary was provided to us by Richard Bennett of BereanBeacon.org, to place on SermonAudio, and we have no direct control of the content of the message itself. More free resources on the Papal Antichrist and the Inquisition are at: Great Debate! Is The Papacy The Antichrist?

Great Sermon! Please post this sermon without background music! Bennet speaks so softly it is difficult to make out what he is saying without deep concentration. The music is so unnecessary.
Fantastic Sermon By Charles Spurgeon (Baptist)! Though this may be one of Charles Spurgeon's best sermons, it does contain some ill-advised praise for the usurper and "Judas of the Covenant" (i.e., Solemn League and Covenant) Oliver Cromwell. For more on Cromwell's true character, in an online debate, please see OLIVER CROMWELL at http://ow.ly/iyHDy or http://www.swrb.com/newslett/actualNLs/crom.htm. Here is a excerpt from this debate: "For a faithful look at Cromwell (who was unaffectionately know among the Presbyterian's of his day as the "late usurper"), and the dissimulation, covenant-breaking and tyranny (he executed Christopher Love a covenanted Presbyterian minister, jailed others, included Thomas Watson and generally scuttled the Presbyterian establishment [to his shame and dishonor]) of his military dictatorship, see the book noted below. ... Cromwell was used of the devil to accomplish things that he (i.e. Satan) could never have accomplished with the more obvious antichrist religions which were not pluralistic (e.g. Romanism, Episcopalianism, etc.). Satan had employed these persecuting beasts often up to this point in history, but now it was time for a new twist, and Cromwell fell right into the devil's trap."
Powerful Sermon! This is a fantastic message denouncing RC religion. It opened my eyes as to how wrong the RC religion is and how it's leading many followers to hell. While I was brought up a RC, I turned away from it many years ago, and in the past 10 yrs. I've been "born again" and have Christ Jesus as my Lord and Savior and have been blessed far beyond what I expected and desired. God is Great!
5 Minutes in Hell? So many reflections while perusing this sermon. Even 5 minutes of what Edwards describes is over whelming. But the idea that he presses that makes the eternality of punishment unavoidable is a missing theme in most concepts of God in our day. That is, that God utterly hates the subjects of His wrath, and mercy and hatred are inconsistent with each other. So there is no hope that after billions of ages He will suppose the punishment is enough, because then He would have to at once love that which He now loathes. Since Dec. of 1985 I have narrated Edwards' sermons and it doesn't get any easier to come to grip with his language. He used all thought at his disposal to convey such an awful reality. He was a master of communicating this solemn teaching.
Great Sermon! Here in America, we are taught nothing but lies. We are taught nothing but lies in school and the Catholic Church is not singled out. Spanish Inquisition was about Christians killing Moslems and the word Jesuit is unknown to Americans. By the way, the South was solid Protestant and Jesuits controlled both sides of the Civil War. All the destruction was in the South. That tells you where the Protestants lived. They killed Lincoln like they killed Napoleon. They were used and discarded. Thank you for being a man. Our Churches have none. The Pope owns them and all of our media forms and of course the White-House. God has opened my eyes and I will make it my mission to wake others from their slumber.
Great Sermon! The command to marry is not to the extent that some do not have the blessing of marriage. Marriage is a choice by both male and female, and no one can be forced to marry. The command is in light of the only choice of sexual expression is indeed marriage. It may come down to the reality that, at times, some singles will be more lonely than those who are married. This is an excellent sermon and good for both single and married to listen to. We in the church must model the grace and holiness God has for each of his children.
Who is sufficient for these things? Not long ago I read through page after page of Foxe's Book of Martyrs. Then I listened to two different audio narrations of this title. Here I was faced with a type of Christianity that is impossible for human nature unaided by Divine grace. But I admit there is no natural attraction to read about someone being burned at the stake for the cause of truth, a martyr beating his breast with one hand till it was burned to a stump (John Hooper). Then thinking of Watt's hymn, must I be carried to the skies on flowery beds of ease, when others fought to win the prize, and sailed through bloody seas. There is only one conclusion, only the Spirit and the Truth can enable anyone to endure and overcome. Still the meditation is what I feel I need to flatten my own pride and lay me in the dust to realize afresh, apart from Me, ye can do nothing. John 15:5

Lordship Regeneration There are those persons who say that can't believe in Lordship Salvation. So, let us call it Lordship Regeneration. What do I mean? In the new birth,the mind is enlightened, the will is renewed Ephesians 2:1, the enmity of the heart (Romans 8:7)is slain and the affections are changed from hate to love towards God. So if you have a "saint" who claims that he has been born again but won't bow to Jesus, still hates Him, and his mind is still in darkness, his profession is a lie and the moment he got to heaven, it will feel like hell to him anyway, because his heart would still prefer the company of devils. Spurgeon would never have taught that someone who has been justified by faith still has had nothing done to his depraved heart. God deals with both the bad RECORD and the bad HEART. But with this modern generation of professing Christians, they have mixed up justification and regeneration so if you tell them that they must bear fruit - which is an effect of the new birth, they cry LEGALISM. As if regeneration was a forensic term.
Great Sermon! I loved this sermon! I already knew what he preached, but I have been listening to a lot of preachers that are making our Lord's gospel difficult! It bothers me, so I needed to hear the Gospel the way Christ taught it! Please stop the Lordship Salvation preaching. We are all horribly equal sinners before our Lord!
