Great Sermon! This Preacher is a blessing. His teaching: Ungodly Rulers is my favorite, as he reads each states requirements for their leaders. The only isuue I have is his teaching about Gods written law. I am of the belief that the old covenant was replaced by the new covenant. Now that the law is written on our heart, keeping the law is the fruit of our salvation instead of a requirement (works) of our salvation.
