“ Intellectual Honesty ”
This one got me started on his teaching. I have always wondered why some teachers want you to use a script to study some passages. I like being able to accept all of scripture without dishonesty in the name of Christ. If you are willing to see what the Bible really says, you are ready to hear Gregory Barkman's wonderful expository preaching!

“ This Barkman bloke is a legend! ”
It must take considerable courage to publically proclaim what is a simple and clear bible truth when 99.9% of other Baptists just won't accept it and many will probably denounce him. So many preachers have gone to extraordinary lengths to twist simple bible facts into saying the opposite: "We know it says wine in the KJV but it really means juice". Lets hope he will go one step further and use proper wine and bread in the Lords Supper, just as the Lord himself told us to. Cheap grape juice and dry crackers are an affront to Christ IMHO, but are appropriate for many given the state of the worldly, apostate churches.

The sermon stopped half way through. It was getting to a very important part of the subject matter, could the Sermon be re-loaded in its entirety? I don't think it was from my end, because I downloaded it several times. Greta subject!!

“ Unadulterated TRUTH! ”
I so much appreciated the opportunity to listen to this carefully exegeted, scripturally and historically based sermon. For too many years, I had been parroting the phrase "to abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drink as a beverage" as part of the church creed in a former church. Everytime I said it, I cringed knowing it was extra-biblical, without scriptural foundation. Praise God for a faithful servant who declares the whole counsel of God, without feeling the need to cave in to the traditions of men. Sola Scriptura! Thank you Pastor Barkman.

“ Exactly! ”
I agree that the "whole counsel of God" is the proper object of our preaching. That's the point! Romans 14 is very clear in it's teaching about relationships, and that the unity of the church isn't to be sacrificed at the expense of individual preferences. It's perfectly fine for you to have convictions of abstinence for yourself and your family; it is a good and reasonable position, and it is fine for you to hold it. The Scripture is clear about the dangers of alcohol and drunkeness. But you can't ignore this essential teaching from Romans 14 about the church. If the Bible teaches it, then you can't pretend it's not there. This is indeed preaching the whole counsel of God.

“ Great Sermon! -cont'd ”
The old addage of "we don't major on the minors" is a cop out. There is no such thing as minor doctrines in the Scripture. They are all major because they are all divinely inspired. (2 Tim. 3:16-17) "ALL SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." Every word is God breathed and every word of God is important. (Matt. 4:4) "But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." Let's get back to preaching the WHOLE counsel of God.

“ Great Sermon! ”
However, a church has every right to protect its outward testimony and to glorify the holiness of our glorified Savior. The reason why this issue is being brought up is that so many Christians are looking for logical excuses and human reasoning to justify their drinking habits. Nevermind the drunk husbands who are beating up their wives and children. Nevermind the drunk drivers who kill innocent people. (Prov. 20:1) Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise. (Prov. 23:29-33) [29] Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? [30] They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine. [31] Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. [32] At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder. [33] Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things. (1 Cor. 6:19-20) What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. Liberty or License?

“ First, take a look at the title of the sermon ”
According to the sermon title, the question at hand that brother Barkman is trying to address is what position his individual church should take on this issue in their covenant. He is teaching from Romans 14 that the Bible forbids the local church from excluding people from membership based on their views of alcohol or other non-essential matters. An individual's decision on this matter of liberty should not even be considered in deciding whether or not to have fellowship with him. You may decide to drink moderately or not to drink; this is your liberty before God. But you may not force your views on other believers using the leverage of the church.

“ Please Listen To BOTH Sides Of This Issue Before Making A Decision ”
I'm going to be honest and say I don't agree with Pastor Barkman's position on this issue, but it's always good to hear from both sides of an issue. One could listen to this sermon and come to the conclusion that it's OK for Christians to drink, so long as they don't get drunk. But BEFORE you make a conclusion on this issue, I recommend you listen to a sermon by a preacher that gives a very strong argument on why all Christians should abstain from drinking alcoholic beverages. My favorite is by Dr. Greg Mazak called "The Beverage Use Of Alcohol," which can be found at this link: http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?sermonID=970221356

“ Good sermon in his context. ”
When listen to this sermon, one must remember what church context were Barkman addressing. He was trying to get the church's covenant back to the bibilical ground (from being overzealous on prohibitionists' position). However in doing so, Barkman did not stress the responsibility of the "strong in faith", who should restrain themselves for the sake of not making "the weak in faith" stumble as well. In any case, Barkman had gut to go against the grain and to speak out against legalism from the pulpit, an action which could cost him big time!

“ Great Sermon! ”
Finally a biblical-driven sermon on alcohol instead of the emotional-driven ones that pick one scripture condemning drunkards or else says that wine in the Bible was really grape juice, which all honest scholars in Old or New Testaments can easily refute from simple Jewish history of wine drinking and, most importantly, the scriptures themselves. By the way, I am a non-drinker 99 percent of the time. I may have a beer or glass of wine once a year. Anyway, why did they call Jesus a winebibber if it was grape juice? Why did Paul not condemn the church for drinking alcoholic wine instead of just telling them not to overindulge in wine in church but to go home to drink? I believe alcoholics, of course, should avoid alcohol like a snake and the Bible teaches this too. But the so-called "7 deadly sins" include gluttony also. Does this mean we must practice abstinence with food? Ridiculous! Let everyone choose abstinence, which is good, if that is what their conscience tells them, but not condemn temporate, moderate drinkers. Let us unite under the banner of Christ and the Holy Spirit and not let nonessentials split us. Drunkards will not inherit the kingdom but the Lord also condemns the practice of dividing the church, judging, etc.Our town voted out wine sale so it's sold unlawful

“ Great Sermon! ”
Wow! A real gem. This deserves at least 5 stars! On a scale of 1 to 10 I give it a 20. This is the kind of sermon the self satisfied, self centered, materialistic American church goers need to hear! Me too! This was such a well balanced and thought provoking sermon that I really wish this was the first installment of 4 parts. We need more preachers like Gregory Barkman and fewer feel good preachers. One of the many points I really loved about this sermon was that perserverence in well doing(good works) was one of the most salient indicators of salvation. He used scripture to validate the over arching importance of a lifestyle of doing good! I know we can never fulfill the requirements of the Law with good works, but I loved the way he handled this subject. It seems like so many "Christians" and Preachers belittle doing good because they fear good works and promoting the Great Comission in the most unreached areas of world are peoples efforts to work their way to heaven. I loved the way Rev. Barkman explained all this. He, like K.P.Yohannan(President of Gospel for Asia) and Ray Comfort really challange us to examine ourselves to see if we are still in the faith. We need to do this continually and think about Judgement day every day! The more we can point the finger at ourselves the better. Again this sermon deserves two big thumbs up--Way Up!

“ Excellent Exposition ”
In my independent study of Romans 11 I came to a conclusion, based on the text, that was not consistent with many of my preterist and dispensational friends presuppositions. My ethnic revival conclusion was solidly reaffirmed through listening to Pastor Barkman's same line of thinking through this excellent expositional message. I am grateful for his ministry.

Thank you. I have gone back and forth with the issue as to whether the Word said for women to wear only dresses or not. Indeed, I sadly realized how much time and energy I was devoting to this non-essential after hearing this sermon. I'm so thankful for this sermon and how it brought Romans 14 to light for me. God Bless!

“ Great Sermon! ”
This is excellent! A "must hear" by all Christians everywhere! Take heed how ye hear...; are you believing the true gospel of God's Sovereign Grace? It is a matter of Life and death! There was a time in my life when I was deceived by the false "gospel" of Arminianism..., but (after many years) the truth has "set me free"...!
