Great Sermon! I am 23 years old and live a good distance from Phoenix, AZ. I just want to take a brief moment to thank you for all the great content your church has available on SermonAudio.com and the content available on AOMin.org and youtube. I am currently looking for a new church because I recently moved too far from my previous (no success yet); but, man, I wish I could find one like yours or establish one like yours here. I wish you all the best, and I will be in Scottsdale, AZ soon for a business conference. I want to stop by to visit your church. God willing I will be able to.
Great Sermon! Dr. White comments that we Reformed Baptists spend a great deal of time on single books of the Bible. (kidding, of course.) Historically we are not in too bad of shape, even though my own pastor Greg Nichols preached 99 sermons on Romans. William Gouge preached 30 years on Hebrews finishing in 1653, Joseph Caryl 22 years on Job,_(published in 12 volumes) and Owen's massive commentary on Hebrews is 4000 pages. In a single sermon of Urian Oakes an hour glass was turned 4 times "Sabbath in Puritan New England". It was written over the door of Cotton Mather's study "be short," but in the pulpit he prayed 75 minutes for his ordination sermon and then preached for an hour and three quarters. Anyway, this series by White has been as good as I had hoped. www.puritanaudiobooks.com
Great Sermon! I really do appreciate this sermon because I was wrestling with myself that I am just a hard hearted person thinking how different, tho as precious as they were, are these from the millions if miniature human beings violently murdered in what should be the safest place, their mother's womb. In addition to mt secular friends on Fb saying about the innocents and I cld only keep going back to there are none innocent and also that God had nothing to do with this. I know I don't need to defend God but I can't not post that God is sovereign over all things or He is not sovereign over anything. I feel now hearing this and being put at peace that im not hard hearted but I can't go back to the time before He graciously opened my eyes to His sovereignty and (my fav statement: that He has the prerogative to do whatever He wants).
Great Sermon! the gospel is always one. Only someone who does not know the Gospel would say there are many versions. Evangelicals share the same gospel. The biblical gospel. The only gospel. They may disagree on some things, but the gospel is the same. That's where unity comes from. Knowing the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Great Insights! Dr. White's teachings and insights are always very helpful and edifying. Men like him are, sadly, becoming more rare. A thorough study of Hebrews will eliminate much confusion about the "Old and the New", and greatly enlarge Christ in our hearts. Many thanks to sermonaudio and Dr. White for being a Godly oasis in a desert of misinformation and falsehood.
Is God Really First in Your Life? This sermon really convicted me as to the question above. The words of Deut. 13 are not easy words to be sure, though they do tell us much about how we are to love our God. I love the way the old and new testament Scriptures are brought together by Dr. White. The explaination he gives of how these words can be twisted and our need to have an answer is very good to know. Also that we need to leave the results of our answers, to Deut. 13, to God, to work out His own purposes. He teaches us how we end up with shallow love for the Lord. The ending is excellent, "...that every act of sin is a demostration that we love something or someone more than we love God." May God give us the desires of His heart, to follow, fear and love Him most of all, with Jesus as our example and grace as our strength, we will do better to love Him most of all. Thank you Dr. White!
Great Sermon! I would have never seen with such clarity this portion of His Word without this sermon. Thank you. And the explanation of our Lord Jesus saying He could not...showing it as a breaking of the unity of the Trinity...so rich...because He could not!! I have received from this. And, what an indescribable grace to have unshakable faith that these things are and Christ Is Who He say He Is to the point where believing becomes more like knowing beyond any shadow of doubt. It's all of grace and treasure. Thank you Bro. White.
Just what I needed! I have been so discouraged lately by what I see. Sometimes I am tempted to just bury my head in the sand, but that is not God's way. Thank you, Dr. White, for reminding me of that.
Great Sermon! With the ongoing advancement of the liberal/lawless agenda, being supported by Government, & the promotion of "same sex marriage"/homosexual "rights"/"respect" for perversion/ "hate speech" called against those speaking out against blatent wickedness. Romans 1:26: comes to mind. "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature".
So a very timely address from Dr. James White, to a wicked & godless generation.
