Excellent! Three ways to increase our sentiment of gratitude toward God: meditate on how ugly ingratitude is; meditate to the mercies of God; meditate to how unworthy you are to receive any favor from God. Followed by 2 excellent tests to see if you manifest gratitude or ingratitude.
Incredible testament of a true missionary! As someone living in the Far East, Hudson Taylor's story in his own words is just incredible to hear. "Godâ€™s work, done Godâ€™s way, will never lack Godâ€™s supply." What an incredible concept! Thank you so much for posting these incredibly encouraging mp3s!
He being dead yet speaketh Thankyou for this information of a dear brother in Christ.
I use 3 gospel tracts based on the writings of J.C.Ryle in my outreach work.
They are 1) The value of a soul 2)Jesus the Saviour and 3)The forgiveness of sins.
They are written lovingly but firm,Ryle never watered down the gospel,repentance being mentioned ,and hell for those who die unrepentant.
Thats how highly i respect this man and his ministry.
Thankyou brother Phillips for a really good message.God bless you for 2010 if we are spared.
Helpful but incomplete I've benefited a great deal from Michael Phillips's lectures on church history (and highly recommend them). His lecture on the Huguenots is admittedly short, but it lacks in the exact area where most discussions lack, that is, it doesn't cover the Huguenot's own militarism. I've found that secular lecturers pickup the militarism, but seem to minimize or mishandle the spiritual/theological nature of the Huguenots. This lecture is good, but is unfortunately an incomplete view of the French Calvinists of the 16th century.
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.
