Great Sermon! A 'must-hear' sermon from Dr. Stephen Jones. One of the best I have heard on the topic of covetousness. From the time God saved me back in 1986 I have found this evil sin to plague my heart on and off. There is no getting rid of it as it is woven into our depraved hearts and our very being - "for out of the heart proccedeth covetousness" said the Master; and it is the Christian's duty to subdue and rule over it.
This was Sodom's sin and it is pretty much the plague of Christians the world over -
"Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy." [EK 16:49]
Our prayer should be "Incline my heart unto Thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.
Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken Thou me in Thy way." [Psalm 119:36,37]
Great Sermon! Truly a great, convicting and much needed sermon. Very well explained the heinousness of it.

Great Sermon! God gave me a urging to study covetousness last week and I thought it strange. I had no idea why the epistles spoke of covetousness as it does. This sermon is the doorway to a new and scriptural understanding of this prevalent sin.

Excellent Message A very challenging message. I did not think of myself as covetous, but I am often discontented. Thank you for pointing out the connection between the two. God bless you and help you to keep speaking the truth to those around you.

Covetousness, Sin of Our Time I haven't heard this sermon but I like this title. It's helpful. It is good to keep words like "covetousness" and "sin" in our vocabularies and not let them slip away from disuse. These vocabulary words are prominent in the Word of God.
