Dear Southern Baptists, Listen to the Apostle Paul This is even more relevant today than it was 16 years ago; millenials and younger generations seldom hear this taught. In particular, controversy is brewing in SBC as Liberal Theology has infiltrated and now seeks revolutionary supremacy. Beth Moore and J. D. Greear are two popular Southern Baptist voices that are pushing to change and alter the clear instruction of inspired Scripture toward democratic philosophy instead of Gods social and church order. The church is to be transformed and obedient to the apostles teaching instead of conformed to the world and democratic-humanist and feminist, egalitarian culture which is in rebellion to God. Liberal Theology, with its 'Wokeness', denies Scriptural authority in social order as clearly revealed by the apostles. Paul is very clear and has the authority of Christ to teach how the church is to be ordered and who is qualified to teach and lead. It begs the question too about why women are in seminaries since their covert ambition is clear. Williamson's teaching with helpful context is that of wise and respected elder and should be listened to again.
Great Sermon! I agree with Laurie, but I think it goes back farther than Trump. Obama did great harm to America by legalizing sodomite marriage, in eight years he dismantled a nation that was already coming down on its own.
Needed Sermon for Social Justice Controversy! This dated Part 1 message of 3-part series from Rev. G.I. Williamson, who is especially respected among conservative & reformed Christian ministers, is needed and especially relevant today due to the Social Justice controversy and calls for Reparations being brought up in Congress. This challenges both the left and the right who avoid directly even considering what the Bible alone teaches about slavery, preferring to keep the PC norm that slavery is evil and an injustice, despite repeated instructions of the apostles letters that slaves should honor and obey, and masters should treat justly and fairly--especially as Christians! While many conservatives say this was temporary instruction Rev. Williamson shows that to be fallacious as well in its context among all other family relations. He explains how the Bible and such passages should be the Only Rule of faith and practice, contrary to all calls past and present for abolition, social structure changes and other agitations.
Great Sermon! God always used evil kings to judge His Covenant nation Israel. I believe He does no less with non Covenant nations. It certainly appears that He lowered the boom of judgment on my country eight years ago when He installed the evil King who is an enemy and traitor to our nation.
Wonderful Sermon Rev. Williamson, this was a wonderful sermon and very encouraging to me. I thank the Lord for your faithfulness to him and to his word, and for your sermons in which you often put things fairly 'simply', yet so often also very profoundly. I did want to make one comment about the way the sun's 'rising' and 'setting' is spoken ofâ€” because of Einstein and his theory of motion, Christians have no need to explain away the Scripture's speaking about the rising and setting of the sun. The theory of relativity actually put geocentricity back on the table as a valid modelâ€” not that atheistic scientists are eager to discuss it. John Byl has written helpful things on this. So, no need to think that the language of the sun standing still in Joshua 10, for instance, is only accommodating man's finite ways of seeing. I found this to be very good news. Thank you again for this wonderful sermon. I intend to share it with loved ones.
Great Sermon! This sermon by G.I. Williamson on "women pastors" is very helful to me and my Church. I have a leadership training day on the 21 June '14. I have used Williamson's teaching on Bible doctrine via Pastor Olyot from Liverpool, England.
Incorrect Text This was a great sermon but the text was not Hebrews 1:1-3, it was on Hebrews 11:1-3. The former text deals with the way God spoke to us in times past but now he speaks through his son. The latter deals with the definition of faith - the basis of GI's argument that we ought to have faith in the Word of God, even about creation.
Great Sermon! I and my family are blessed immensely by this clear and simple teaching. I would love God willing to learn more on this teaching on the last things.Please get back to me. What a sovereign God He is.
THUNDER!!! Listening to Rob Zins message concerning the possible problem that we Protestants have with Romans 2 in terms of it's discussion of works, I sought out sermons on Romans 2. By God's leading I found this message by Rev. Williamson on Romans. I didn't even know this gentleman. But I do now. If you plan to listen to this, be prepared ahead of time to be ready to respond to God. I have to say I'm different, THUNDER!!! Thanks Lord for being patient with this sleepy sinner.
Outstanding exposition "Jesus suffered the silence for us, so that we might never have to."
I have always struggled with understanding this passage, but you have done an excellent job expositing it, and then an even better job applying it. This sermon was simply marvelous! Thank you!
Refutes False Arguments for Worship! Wow! This powerfully and surprisingly refutes myths and false popularized ideas that "there are other hymns in scripture outside the Psalms", which justifies will-worship in the use of uninspired "hymns" and non-scriptural songs or by saying "but we preach using our own words". Enough of such falsehoods and erroneous thinking. Let Sola Scripture be the reformed churches motto for WORSHIP as well as doctrine, lest we provoke a Jealous God to wrath with our "good intentions".
A Powerful Message to 'Reformed' Churches! This sober sermon is very troubling and proves the necessity of a modern reformation even more than when it was first preached. The respected Mr. Williamson's counsel, from a true Elder in this present age, should be heeded particularly by modern churches that claim to be "reformed", for he says plainly that they especially have not reformed! Following his logical exposition of Romans 1 he shows that the moral degradation of American society is a direct result of the *worse foundational sin of wrong and corrupted worship of God* (whose is still righteously Jealous), which can be laid at the feet of modern churches. This makes it plain that society will continue to collapse further into degradation until the churches repent of their corruptions and will-worship, which the 'New Calvinism' in particular refuses to consider.
Excellent Message! So great to hear someone speaking from the truths of the Bible and not just to tickle ears and increase their congregations and popularity. I cannot wait to listen to more of your messages.
Needed Subject! I have held this view for over 25 years. I have set in my Baptist Church listening and reading books on Dispensationalism, Pre-mill views as though there were no other arguments left in the Bible. It has been so obvious to me that these ideas need to be in the category of Biblical Fantasy and Fairytales. It is so refreshing to hear someone who is willing to honestly face these issues from the Bible. I wish that someone had refuted â€śThe Late Great Planet Earthâ€ť many years ago. May God have mercy on our ignorant churches and congregations who seek after a lie.
