Great Sermon! This has to be the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT sermon there is on SA on the issue of the underlying greek texts.
What an education! A brilliant lesson on how to think sanely on the issue. Explodes the fallacies of modern textual critics in favour of the Alexandrian type texts, which are in any case the minority!
Very well done brother Watts!!
Detailed and well-done critique I haven't read this specific book (there seems to be a new one all the time), but Rev. Silversides does an outstanding job pinpointing the assumptions made by naturalists who want to deny religion, and how they are either begging the question or saying things that don't make sense under their own world view. The latter is one of the largest problems with the naturalistic philosophy - mainly that they must live on borrowed capital (usually Christian) to even discuss their positions. They don't want to live with the truth about an evolutionary world, because it's too frightening. I wonder if Dawkins (is he a trained philosopher?) has read Nietzsche, because that's the point Nietzsche makes - if you're going to throw away Christianity and revealed knowledge, you have to live with the consequences. You can't reject Christianity and keep Christian morality - one of the things mentioned in this critique, that Dawkins wants to have morality without God but can find no reason to do so. Finally, Dawkins' book is apparently popular, and almost every popular book on religion is not worth reading.
A good overview, however an ungodly government should not be submitted to, but should be resisted as much as possible. All forms of sin and sinful presence should be resisted and brought under Christ's submission. The church should address governments publicly, and individuals should resist personally whenever the opportunity arises - anything less is sinful in itself.
Great Sermon! Thank you Thank you so much Rev Daavid you have indeed shown my wife and myseelf a truth rather than looking ffor signss seek rather the spread of the Gossspel. Pray please that we shall do so and rest not on the imaginations of the end but rather on The eternal Salvation that is for all to hear in these days amen
Wonderful sermon! I thoroughly enjoyed this sermon on the holiness of God, which is also about the covenant of grace, the mediating work of Jesus Christ and the folly of coming to God by any other way than the one he prescribes. It is a theological feast - I learned alot! Thank the Lord for this man who loves His truth.
The Historical and Biblical View This presentation is quite long (wouldn't fit on a CD!) but interesting. I grew up in an area where there was no other interpretation of the Bible other than dispensationalism - the Bible WAS the Scofield Bible. I am interested in discovering the older, historical interpretation of the Bible. This study, which is jammed with Bible references, helped show some of the difficulties in the dispensationalist view.
Great Sermon! I haven't listened to the sermon, but that's because I guessed what it was going to say already. Upon re-reading "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" five years ago I could see some BIG red flags - like Adam's FIRST wife not being Eve, but Lilith. And I think in another book, I can't remember which, he makes a reference to people needing to pray on their knees because it reminds us that we are just animals. I haven't had much use for his writings since then; it takes too much work to sort through.
Just what we needed to hear ! Naomi and myself have been looking for a spiritual home,and attended two different local churches recently, where we thought we could belong- lovely saints,great preaching,etc. !
In both churches however,we were stunned to find at the prayer meetings that the sisters prayed audibly .
We thought this unscriptual,but maybe thought that we had it wrong and were too judgmental.
A dear brother (Tom) pointed out this sermon,and it proved ,in providence,the answer to our questions on this matter.
Thankyou Bro Silversides for faithful preaching. I met you once when you were at the T.B.S. i was the cleaner ther at the time , and i also have read your book on the free offer of the gospel,which was beneficial as well,as i am involved in street evangelism.
May the Lord bless your ministry brother Silversides.
Great Sermon! this topic of the so called "unpardonable sin" has come up in a thread. i thought i'd listen to this and thank you again for your clear and consistent teaching on it. its great to be able to access this resource on line.
Great Sermon! Good sermon! Gives very useful information concerning the DVC. Although the DVC is obviously fiction, it is good, nay vital, that Christians have answers to give to the scoffers (I Peter 3:15) in these days.
Outstanding Outstanding introduction to this important document - very informative. Combined with Pastor Ian Goligher's sermon on this topic, it makes a great primer. Highly recommended for people who want to study this historic document that establishes sound doctrine.
I am under 30 I am under 30, indeed before I was 19 I had never read a book the whole way through. When I came under conviction of sin at 19 I began to read the Bible, and it was the K.J.V. I do not say that I understood every word, I would not have understood every word of a childrenâ€™s book; but I quickly felt at home with the language. I found that this language was majestic, it was reverential, yes it made me read slower than I would reading a newspaper but that taught me that this was no newspaper - it made me think about the word as I read. If it had read like a newspaper I would have read fast and wondered in my thoughts much more easily. Is it a problem of understanding? From my experience I would say no. Rather most young people don't want to put effort into reading; if this is pandered to in translations where will it stop? The Bible will soon have to read like a text message, but it is the word of God and accuracy is vital. If a teen was reading a text book for a Degree he would look up any words he didn't understand (Most Bibles have a glossary at the back of them) yet they will through down a Bible at the first sign of difficulty. When sinners become serious they will have little bother reading the most accurate translation in English; when they do, they will be confident of it.
Fascinating .... What I can't get over is that in all of the hours and hours of material about the KJV, no speaker ever deals with the main issue, that it's incomprehensible to modern English speakers. Can't they go out and get someone under 30 years of age, give them a KJV, and see if the person understands it? The KJV may be the perfect translation, but when people can't understand it, why insist on its use? Why not take the Received Text and create a modern translation that people can understand?
