Great Sermon! Took some pateince to listen to with the live translation, but was a solid presentation that grounded biblical submission in a love for God & a husband (not simply obedience). I love how the speaker eventually framed detailed fashion objections as a matter of the heart that finds its value in God not outward/opulent adorenment (a point I think is biblical & often ignored for a hyper focus on sex appeal - something I find can be external & extremely subjective particularly in conservative circles). Though the speaker didn't reference Proverbs 27:17, I liked how she affirmed the biblical recognition & value of wisdom taught by older women with experience saying youth needs to grow, yet affirmed a need for patience & tenderness in that teaching (implying age may also have some room to grow) & how someone in the audience pointed out none of these issues are good excuses to run from a deeper understanding of The Lord. Overall, I found the teaching to be sound (though in my opinion a bit too narrow in definition with button sewing skills noted as a fulfillment of Titus 2:5) & delivered with tact. But I am still disappointed that for me the question of what it means to be a woman in the body of Christ is still unclear outside the context of marriage which according to 1 Cor 7:8 can be
Great Sermon! Greetings in JESUS' Name brother Paul. The series is an eye opener! I bless The LORD. Only one concern, is it the role of the fathers to raise children or the role of parents? because I think its unscriptural in the new testament. I believe in the New Testament it's the believing parent. I feel you are diluting the involvement of both parents in bringing up a godly generation and making it a fathers role only. I feel it's unbiblical to separate the two because The HOLY SPIRIT is not gender sensitive.In The LORD, the woman is independent of the man and vise versa.Otherwise I bless The LORD for you.
Great Sermon! Thank Pastor to teach on when I am weak, then I am strong in our Lord. Since His love is always there, to run back to Him for everything - everything in life, smallest to the biggest issues. To believe in every word of His & to bear fruit for Him in the brief time we are here. Thank You.
Great Sermon! Thank you Pastor. Thank God that only only your people in Peru or in USA but also sinners like me in India are blessed by your exposition. This is a great blessing for me & a whole lot of revelation to me on the significance of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Great Sermon! this was a wonderful sermon for kids..paul speaks to them without dumbing them down as if they cant understand spiritual truths, but with honesty and simple faith. I will be having my kids finish the series..
Love Ephesians I love Paul Washer and this is a great teacher. Fun fact for anyone studying Ephesians, the majority of scholars of Ephesians don't believe it was actually written to the church in Ephesus, because the words "in Ephesus" are omitted from the earliest manuscripts. A lot of those scholars believe it was a circular letter. Pretty interesting!

Great Sermon! Thank you Paul for this sermon.Did you come across people said you are not a Christian? Especially your partner. How hurts and sad will that be?You are not a Christian because you don't read your Bible and you don't know your Scriptures well?I struggle recently with my partner because I have"depression and anxiety" I was off my medications for 4 months ago at one night I was hitting myself,pulling my hair and out of control that makes my partner think I am not a Christian Woman and I have a "Strong Man" in me.By today after listening to this sermon I know Who Am I in CHRIST.I prayed for Deliverance and Free from my depression and anxiety. Jesus has done so much in my life for the past 10 years and I will keep walking no matter what happen in my life to come. I will not fear even I lost my partner. I can do all things through CHRIST Who Strengthen Me. Amen
Thank you Paul.
God Bless You and your ministry.
Encouraging Sermon! In this sermon brother Paul teaches wonderful truths about God's gracious work of adoption. Not only does God not deal with us in vengeance, nor in justice, nor even merely in forgiveness, but He adopts us into His family, former children of the devil, His former enemies and rebels against His glory and kingdom. We are God's children now. Listen to hear brother Paul unpack this truth and others and praise your great God.
Great Sermon! He definitely has it right. "It's not the delivery, it's the content" Thank you for teaching me this week Pastor Washer. Listening to GOD speak through you this week was a true learning experience. Looking forward to the 2nd and 3rd sermons. Blessings!
Great Sermon! "Do you realize that one of the greatest philosophical, theological, moral problems in the universe is not 'why do bad things happen to good people?' But 'why does anything good happen at all?' This is a fallen world! Do you understand that? The mass of humanity is in constant rebellion against God!"
God be praised! I have listened to many sermons from Paul Washer and I can honestly say this is my favorite. It is full of rich practical theology, which is testified by reality in his life and preaching. We must not idolize this weak man whom God uses, but may we not neglect the Lord who speaks through him.
Listen to this if you want to revitalize your zeal for Christ and his kingdom. What a marvelous Savior we have.
So helpful! Brother Paul gives a rounded Bible teaching on manhood, especially fatherhood. He stresses the importance for boys of spending time with their fathers and godly Christian men, as opposed to spending it with other boys. He stresses the importance of a father's responsibility to disciple his children. He looks at father-son discipleship throughout church history, particularly with the Puritans, and finds fault with the modern church method of using a youth group and sunday school to teach the children. Mr. Washer contests that when Pastors and fathers preach and teach the Word of God, it is the right setting for children to learn, and that children will not be missing out because they didn't have a youth pastor or sunday school teacher.
This sermon contains very valuable advice. If only I could have had heard this message as young teenager! Please share it with young Christian men--and fathers--in your life.
