Very Powerful & Important Sermon! King Jotham was steadfast in his determination to follow God despite the failure of his father and the societal corruption around him. King Jotham is a very important and inspiring example for us today.
After listening to this sermon a second time the thought occurred to me that King Jotham and President Bush share many of the same qualities.
Great Sermon! I certainly enjoyed this message. Though I was a little surprised at first because the message did not deal with corporate apostasy, I was blessed by the message nonetheless and listened to it three times so far. Pastor Savastio deals with passages that have caused much consternation over the years and much discussion and little dealt with in messages from the pulpit. But Scripture does seem to state, several times, that it is better for a man not to be saved than to have made a profession then turn away. This message is a very good explanation of this, and comprehensive in its coverage. A fine, valuable message.
I had not heard of Pastor Savastio before this, but will seek out some more of his messages based on good experience listening to this one.
A Powerful Sermon Jim's sermon expounds on the parable Jesus gave to illustrate the importance of persistence in praying to God. Jim's sermon reminds us that persistence in prayer is the real path to spiritual power. We must persist in praying to God and the focus should not be on our own desires but to seek God's will in our lives.
Exhortation to Reformation Pastor Savastio reminds believers in Reformed circles that the model for Biblical reformation is to be found in . . . the Bible! "To the law and the testimony" should be our cry as we tear down the high places and break the "sacred" pillars.
Excellent Study. Pastor Savastio offers a good introductory critique of Theonomy, comparing it to Biblical teaching about the civil magistrate as well as the teaching of the historic Reformed faith. Most importantly, he does so humbly, recognizing that those who disagree are still those for whom Christ died. Would that all Christians would engage in polemical discussions in this spirit!
