Casual Christianity Condemned! Irreverence in life or worship, even while being orthodox in doctrine, is heterodoxy in practice and dishonoring to God. This indicts today's Bumper-sticker and T-Shirt Christianity that is marked by lip-service while the means and actions speak without gravity and reverence. And when the speaker rehearses the text about the Sabbath, "oh what a weariness it is" (as God mocks Israel's irreverent attitude), it reminds one of Sunday-Only Christianity--i.e. dress up then dress down as soon as church is over, the race to watch TV or sports, as if being a Christian, who ought to fear God always, is not 24/7, or as if reverence is only a show for church meetings, then afterwards God is not feared. This was the "hypocrisy" of Israel that God indicted them for--temporary pretense, preferring other things! Isn't that the kind of Christianity most of us were raised in, wrongly?
Excellent Study This is an excellent help to those looking for an overview of Systematic theology, following the Westminster Confession. Thorough and interesting, it is also a fertile ground for sermon ideas or studies. Thanks for posting this excellent series.
Great contrast. Great contrast between the wicked and the righteous, between their living and their eternal destiny. David found his anchor in difficult times in depending on God and in being in fellowship with God.
Great Sermon! Thank you so much for the sermons Biblical Teachings #1 and #2. We thank you and pray the Lord will bless you in the strength to labor in the preaching of Christ and only Him as our Savior!
8th sermon on my odyssey Dera Pastor worrell,
thankyou for such a lovely sermon,and for the thoughts and challenging aspects contained therein.
I am on an odyssey of chronologically listening to a sermon from each book of the Bible,by a speaker whom i havent heard before.
I am being really blessed,edified,challenged and encouraged in this venture,and being built up in my most holy faith.
God bless you and your congregation.
Great Sermon! A must hear message on the ONLY biblical method of gaining sanctification. We cannot walk as Jesus walked by trying harder, but only by being transformed into his image, and this sermon makes this truth very clear.
Afraid of prideful Phariseeism? Listen to this sermon. In near despair about your failures to "meet the standard"? Listen to this sermon!
This needs to be a featured sermon on this site for a long time.
