“ Humbling Sermon! ”
There are a number of things about Pastor McDearmon's preaching that assists him to make a solid impression on the conscience. He preaches with a pathos and a command of the English language that is gripping and almost unequalled even in Reformed Baptist circles, (2) he never preaches that which is superficial or can lightly be dismissed, and (3) those of us who know him also know that he lives what he preaches. I recently heard him affectionately referred to as General McDearmon and I think the title is fitting, though I also think of him as a drill sargent. The first thing I am convicted of is my own spiritual flabbiness, and also my need to be a symmetrical father. That the whole man is required to be a father and not just once in a while, and at other times we can check out. But what is required is focus. If one is hear to listen to sermons on www.sermonaudio.com to hear some interesting new thing, you probably won't like this kind of frank preaching. If one thinks that the Christian duty is defending a certain version of the Bible and their theory of when Christ returns, they will wonder at this kind of preaching. This is surely a sign of how astray we are in our thinking about the narrow way and the cross of Christ.

“ Christian College Athlete's Recommandation ”
Pastor McDearmon's series on athletic imagery in the New Testament has helped you greatly in my athletic career, both in high school and in college. He firmly believes that athletic training and competition is one of the best theaters in which to develop certain character traits. In fact, it may be hard to practically teach our young people such character in other contexts. For example, he points out that a diligent athlete learns endurance. As a long distance runner, I wholeheartedly agree! But the most important endurance he means is not physical, but mental and attitude-related. If our young people are not impressed early in life that certain commitments they make are binding regardless of whether they are having fun, they will be poor churchmen, spouses, parents, and citizens. In short, athletics can play a very important role in developing the most vital character traits we all need as Christians. I highly recommend this sermon, and the entire series.

“ A Christian Coach's Commendation ”
This series should be heard by everyone but especially by anyone who has the privilege of coaching young men and women in athletics, and by everyone who participates in athletic competition. Pastor McDearmon clearly shows, by a careful analysis of New Testament language and imagery, the positive character traits that may be learned and cultivated by athletic training and competition. He sets forth from the Bible, especially the writings of Paul, that there are at least eight areas of character traits essential to living the Christian life that are identified with the biblical usage of athletic imagery: submission to authority, discipline, self-control, hard work, courage, teamwork, endurance and focus or single-mindedness. As is usual with Pastor McDearmon, the Biblical exegesis is handled with surgical accuracy, and the applications come with earnestness and conviction. After identifying these essential character traits, he then makes a powerful plea that such athletes should be preeminently seeking to pattern their lives after our great example, the Lord Jesus Christ. In our many years of coaching, we have used this beneficial series to form the basis of what we try to teach our athletes. God has graciously blessed these efforts. We encourage others to listen and do likewise.

“ In time for the Olympics! ”
It is a genuine delight and a real blessing to have Pastor McDearmon’s sermons online so that many others may benefit from his godly ministry. I have been personally blessed and greatly helped by Pastor McDearmon’s ministry at various conferences and retreats throughout the years. These messages, which describe living the Christian life as seen in the use of athletic imagery by the Apostle Paul in the New Testament, are particularly timely and helpful during this season of Summer Olympics in Greece. The unique and insightful opening up of related Scriptures comes home with real freshness and relevance.
