Comment back to dlh from Raleigh, NC Thank you for your comment. Please listen to the segment of the sermon from 23:09 to 23:12 to see that your concern for Machen's reputation is indeed addressed. He was not misrepresented in this sermon. Blessings!
Great Sermon! This message was such a great blessing to our congregation - so fitting and timely. I had been planning on developing a paper for the deacons, describing certain 'Biblical Principles of the Diaconate', but to do so (in light of this message by Pastor Marquedant) would be redundant.
Preached words & God's speech shape our reality All Pastors/Preachers/Teachers, and Listeners will benefit greatly from this intense and fascinating teaching about God & words, human beings & language/speech/words, and the realities created. For example: Satan's words against God's words created a different reality for Adam. Adam's choice intended to create a new reality for himself. God's curse of spoken words created yet another reality for Adam. I can't possibly do this wonderful, powerful teaching justice here. I learned so much from the history and insights about Luther and Calvin concerning the preaching of God's word. It is astonishing to learn how good preaching in the pulpit properly CONFRONTS us because God confronts us, and reshapes the faulty worldly realities in our hearts & minds. All week long most of us are vulnerable to pollution from the world, and then on the bless-ed Lord's Day the preaching should realign us to God's reality. Language & speech & words are how God communicates. Our words also create good or bad realities. (Additionally, the way he pronounces almost everythingk endingk with a 'g' except for the word preaching, is entertainingk. Though, everythingk he thinks is interestingk). All 4 teachings of his about scripture, early history & reformation schema from the SCRBPC 2014 are exemplary. Thankgs
Great Sermon! I appreciated the note about Republication. It sounds like Dr. Barcellos read or at least agrees with Dennison's Biblical Theological Catechism of Exodus http://www.kerux.com/doc/2902A4.asp
This should be added to the Psalm 23 series Hi - this sermon does not appear under the SermonAudio SERIES list for Campbell Colledge's Psalm 23 series. I believe this should be the 7th in the list.

Great Sermon! Great points - perhaps some room for reform in our own church. One minor observation: Orthodox Presbyterians would not consider J. G. Machen a Fundamentalist leader. In fact, he was very much against Prohibition. See Fighting the Good Fight: A Brief History of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church by D.G. Hart and John Muether. Thanks!
Great Sermon! As a normal rule, I do not use such terms as, 'inspirational', but this was truly that. The humbling and exalting and exulting privilege of knowing Christ... and His people declared here.
Great Sermon! David, your message was very rewarding to me in Christ.
You may not remember me however we went to school together. we used to be best friends as kids..
Blessings and Favor to you.
Fascinating, Riveting, with Historical data I can't say enough good things about this sermon. God used Joseph, and Pharaoh, and the people of Egypt in such awesome ways. The Historical Data presented with the Word concerning these Providential events is fascinating. Though some of the data is shocking & difficult to hear about other times in history when Egypt suffered horrible famines beyond imagining without the benefit of Joseph.
Great Sermon! A well organized and finely presented expository sermon of this chapter (1 Samuel 25).
This sermon will help a believer practically, and will bless any Pastor or teacher in preparation. Well done!
Great study. This was a very helpful sermon. Profound observations, good biblical teaching, it opens new perspectives of thought to this subject. An give a healthy perspective on the relationship between God and matter. It is a good biblical answer to many philosophies, who give a wrong answer to this relationship.
