Solid Doctrinal Sermon! This is a doctrinal sermon that is informative, exhortative, and challenging. Spurgeon examines the doctrine of God's omniscience from many angles. He shows that this doctrine is encouraging to those who are slandered and fearful and how it's a warning to those who continue in our sins. Let us continue this great legacy of doctrinal preaching!
Preaching the Truth is Critical to Christianity This sermon is about obeying the commandments of God. The authority of Scripture and the importance of believing in Christ as the Lord and Savior of the world are emphasized. The â€śPrince of Preachersâ€ť stresses the importance of correct doctrine based on the Word of God and points out that even the slightest deviation from Godâ€™s commandments, as theyâ€™re revealed in Holy Scripture, can have dire consequences (e.g. Uzzah and the Ark of God). He also criticized false, pernicious doctrines such as infant baptism and the Catholic practice of last rites, from which infant baptism, allegedly, originated from. Lastly, Spurgeon included an anecdote about a guy named Brown at the end of the sermon which illustrates our right to believe in Jesus Christ. All of Spurgeonâ€™s sermons are gems.
Another Quality Semon from the Prince of Preachers I listened to this sermon and it instantly uplifted my soul. The main idea of the sermon is that God has His reasons for taking believers through different trials. Spurgeon explains some of those reasons why believers have to suffer. For instance, sometimes believers have to suffer in order to have the pride removed from their hearts. I never thought of suffering that way, but I'm thankful that Spurgeon brought that particular piece of truth to my attention.
Lastly, I've never been disappointed reading or listening to a sermon by Charles Spurgeon. Some are better than others, but they're all gems - sparkling like diamonds of truth in all their brilliance.
