Great Sermon! I agree romans 7 is not experiential to a new Christian ( certainly not my testimony ). The older oj Christ I get the more frustrated I get by my indwelling sin. This was indeed very comforting.
important Sermon! Very needed and important refutation of the naive and popular statement that is here exploded and refuted many. A pastor of a sovereign grace baptist church told me "we are not a confessional church", as if that was better. Yet they have a short statement of beliefs in print! This message shows why such statements are untruthful and an irrational position that only opens the door for a multitude of errors and heresies, that have flooded modern churches.
Great Sermon! Outstanding sermon. I agree with pastor Beeke and the majority of commentators that Romans 7 is in fact the description of a mature believer. Pastor Beeke mentions Martyn Lloyd Jones and his view of the individual being not a mature believer but describes someone under the initial conviction of the law and a new believer. However I have listened to Jones's sermons and he definitely changed his view.
Joy Unspeakable This is a wonderful lecture. If you are discouraged because of your sin and see yourself as unlovely and unworthy, listen to this and look to Him Who loves freely and fully. To hear this live was a blessing, indeed. I was filled with more desire to be holy, to please Him Who gave Himself for me.
God sees us. Job is not understood, nor believed by his friends, so he turn to God. God is his witness in heaven - God knows that Job committed no sin to merit this trial which seems to him as punishment.
