Reality check Remarkably, complacency sets in churches when collective and personal standards on practical issues are dismissed. One of the marks of Neo-evangelicalism is the distribution of Godâ€™s precepts in a scale of importance according to a secularised set of values. We read that "The LORD â€¦. will 'magnify' the law, and make it honourable". (Isaiah 42) In contrast, we try to 'diminish' the precepts to make them despicable.
Great Sermon! I found this sermon very comforting. I often accuse myself of being a false professor because I struggle to bring others to Christ. I guess it's just not my gifting and when ever I try I feel that I'm doing it in the flesh. Rev higginson explains what a false profession would look like and although I truly would be the worse Christian if you judge on things like producing other Christians, I was relieved that he did not consider this a mark of fruitfulness. I would recommend this sermon to anyone who struggles with their own sinfulness and worthlessness as maybe things are not as bad as we secretly fear....very comforting sermon.
