good listening Thank you, Marty Tate! It's always refreshing to listen to solid preaching and to those who desire to test all things. I like that you mention that there were no Christian stars in the Bible. Only God creates stars and anyone who wishes to attain to star quality must keep in mind that which separates the natural man from the constitution of stars, namely "gas".
Great Sermon! Please don't use the "r-word" (retarded) to mean "stupid". I enjoyed that sermon otherwise. Organizations, agencies, and service/supports providers use the term "intellectual disability". From feebleminded to mental deficiency to mental retardation to intellectual disability. This group of people are made in the image of God. Even the organization formerly known as the American Association of Mental Retardation changed their name to the American Association of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, which is headquartered in Washington, D.C. Log-on to www.aaidd.org for further information. Thanks so much for this sermon. God Bless!
A lot of useful information This lessons is an attempt to debunct the idea that the Baptists existed long before the Jacob-Lathrop-Jesse church of 1642. I am trying to study both sides of this discussion. What cannot be denied, however, is that the English Particular Baptists distanced themselves from the Ana-baptists and said that to label them so is unjust. (see Title of the 1st London Confession of 1644)The only other statement in this presentation that my own studies would have me question is that King James had nothing to do with the actual translation of the King James Bible. Apparently he was in fact quite a language scholar and did oversee the work and suggested changes to it. Ironically, before he became staunchly catholic, he also had a great deal to do in the formation of the assembly that became the Synod of Dordt. (see Thomas Scott's commentary on the Canons of Dordt.) Minimally, however, this message shows me that I know far too little of my own Baptist history. (see Thomas Scott's commentary on the Canons of Dordt.)
Great Sermon! Good message. This is not a message that is heard much, unfortunately, in most Baptist churches these days. There is more focus on keeping people in seats than preaching The Word.
Thanks for doing this.
