Great lesson in faith. Great lesson about faith. Moving story of the conversion of Muller, of his passion for souls, of his love for the orphans and of his faith in God. We have to learn his lesson: when we have a problem, not to go with it to men, but to God.
Hermeneutics. To evaluate Calvinism, we need: submission to the authority of Scripture (not the reason of man is the authority); respect the voice of the Church (great men of God believed it); recognize the spirit of the age, which is opposed to this doctrine.
Sovereignty of God exalted. Good biblical argumentation. Explanation of what foreknowledge and foreordination is. Condition of election is found in God and not in the sinner. God had chosen some for salvation only out of His love.
Needed. If God's grace would be resistible, every men, dead in sin, would reject salvation. It is needed God's power to save a sinner. Irresistible grace do not mean that God violates the will of man, but that He draws men inclining their will to embrace Christ. He frees the will of men from the bondage of sin.
Good argumentation. Good refutation of this doctrine. Examples of hyper-Calvinists mentioned: Hoeksema and Gospel Standard Baptists. Hyper-Calvinist errors regarding common grace and the offer of the Gospel to everyone refuted.
Great Sermon! An excellent look at Augustine, bad boy intellectual turned major theologian and defender of the faith. Phillips takes you down all the paths and twists and turns in one of the most fascinating Christians who ever lived during the fall of Rome.
Great Sermon! This is truly an amazing and inspirational story showing how our Might God can work through an ordinary man with a heart on fire for Jesus. I was truly encouraged and challenged by the life of Hudson Taylor. This is something everyone should listen to.
