Great Sermon! I thank you Voddie for calling attention to the spurious claims being made by John Shelby Spong. I'm not prefacing his name with his titles. I grew up in the Episcopal church and was in the last class confirmed by Bishop Rath before Spong took over. Back then, 1979, he was just a bishop of the Newark diocese, but even then my parents could see that his ideas were unbiblical. He is primarily responsible for the hundreds of thousands of former Episcopalians like myself, who left the church when it became unbiblical I do miss the church of my youth: singing the Psalms in morning prayer, and the great amount of bible knowledge and knowledge of the Reformation I learned as a child. But I have to thank him in one sense. When he started a lot of the controversy which, as you mentioned, is even today rocking the Christian community, it forced me to examine what I really believed. It forced me to go back and really read the Bible; to see what it actually said. I realized then what God said about changing the Bible...even one word...and it made me a stronger believer as a result. Let us contend for the true faith, brothers and sisters. The church, the ecclesia, is us; the body of believers. We will not be popular, or numerous, but we will stand, and with God's help overcome until the end.

Timeless & Timely I listen to this sermon tonight while working and I felt the agony as I think about the church & the broader culture. I'm praying for God to raise up men & women in His Church with that same conviction. Thank u.
