Wonderfully Comforting!! "O death where is thy sting? O grave where is thy victory?" I often comfort myself with this saying,heaven is heaven simply because Christ is there,I need no other motive to make me want to be there.
Good Series on Depression I had the privilege of hearing part of this series preached here in Grand Rapids, but I'm so happy to see this whole series on Sermon Audio. For years I have been impressed with Pastor Pizzino's preaching, but on this particular subject he really is able to assist his hearers with the things he has learned through his own battles with Apollyon and his own struggles past with depression. These sermons should be made known to more people, and I hope a simple comment here will alert someone who may benefit from them.
Well-ordered church. The greatest need of any community is a well-ordered church, formed by members who are living by the grace of God in godliness, eagerly expecting the glorious return of Jesus Christ.
Great men of courage. An account of more than 100 years of official persecution of Christians, in different waves. Short presentation of the lives of such Christians as: Polycarp, Ireneus, Blandina, Tertullian, Perpetua and Felicitas. God raised courageous men and women of faith in those times.
Great warrior. Three great lessons from the life of Knox: the importance of standing for the truth whatever the cost; we must have great zeal for the purity of the worship; the importance of the love for the Church of God.
Great courage. Power and courage for our days from the examples of the great men of God of other times. The examples of Robert Bruce, Alexander Henderson, the Covenanters and Rutherford are really encouraging us to fight today the battles of the Lord.
Reformation in England. Reformation in England. Presentation of the contributions to Reformation by Tyndale, Cranmer, Ridley, Hooper, Latimer and Bradford. Good introduction to the study of the lives of these men of God. An observation: Erasmus published the Greek NT, not translated it from Latin into Greek.
Great light. Good presentation of Luther's life and ministry. Indeed, he is a man given by God to His Church. In His love and jealousy for His Church, God brought the Reformation and brought life in His Church.
Great man of God. Role of Calvin in reforming Geneva, his controversies, his teaching, his passions for evangelism and for the salvation of souls. Some historians do not agree with the idea that Calvin was converted in 1529 at Bourges, as it is presented here.
Great work of God. Good introduction to the life of Wycliffe. Wycliffe seen as a scholar, politician and heretic (the Papacy saw him as a heretic). Some aspects of his teaching. Further references to the Lollards and Hus. And concluding lessons from the life of Wycliffe.
Very Good Opening of Owen This series by Pastor Bryant is well delivered, far exceeding my expectations. Between having this series on Tempation, and Les Walthers on the Mortification of Sin SID=826071918246, I am thankful for such additions on Sermon Audio. But even more so is the gift of having Bart and Lael and their families as personal friends. Thanks again for this S.S.
Thanks for this series Just discovered this series this morning, downloaded all of them. If someone told me of a church where the Religious Affections by J Edwards, Of Temptation by John Owen were being taught in S.S. and the pastor was going through the book of Galatians, I would reply, "sounds like one healthy church to me." Thanks so much!
Great Sermon! Home on the Lord's Day, I listened to Pastor Martin's sunday school. Thought it would be of some spiritual help because of his age and probable long tenure in the ministry.
Thank-you, Lord for giving this man wisdom! If you are uncertain whether or not to listen - do yourself and God-given family a favor - listen.
Reformed Christians listen. So many in the church today want the theology of the Puritans but not their piety(pastor friend once told me). Listen and be blessed.
