Before you EXPRESS OPPOSITION to this sermon on language in the pulpit:

1) You really need to deal with the exposition that Phil does on Titus 2:7-8 instead of just defending your favorite preacher (i.e. Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church in Seattle) that uses language in the pulpit that Scripture condemns.

2) Read Phil's 2 blogs where he answers questions about this sermon (either at the end of the downloadable PDF found on this sermon page or at the links below):

3) Consider these texts on language:
“but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity”
-1 Timothy 4:12

“in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned”
-Titus 2:7-8

“For an overseer, as God's steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered… but… self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined”
-Titus 1:7-8

“Therefore an overseer must be above reproach… respectable…”
-1 Timothy 3:1

“Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths”
-Ephesians 4:29

-“Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place"
-Ephesians 5:4

“But now you must put them all away… obscene talk from your mouth”
-Colossians 3:8

“the evil person out of his evil treasure brings forth evil. I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak”
-Matthew 12:34-36

“ Question? ”
Can I download this on my pc? I noticed that when i went to dl it it said it was copy right. I had also shared it with a group I have on Facebook. Am I in violation? I thought we could dl and share sermons on SermonAudio?

“ Well said Pastor. ”
Case Closed. Pray for that man from The West Coast before he's prematurely called into account. ... Be not overly wicked, neither be a fool. Why should you die before your time? (Eccl 7:17)

“ Forceful Sermon! ”
How unBiblical preaching has become in today's world. The church has lost its Christian view about the Gospel and how to preach it to the unsaved. When God is Holy, how dare they share the crude and vulgar talk in His presence, if indeed God would be present in such a lost church setting.

“ A Sadly Necessary Sermon ”
Thank you Phil, for your uncompromising stand in protection of God's glory. I have prayed many times that God would again raise up men of conviction and courage to confront the worldly church. Thankfully I count you among those men. Soldier on!

“ Great Sermon! ”
How sad it is that a sermon like this needs to be preached. Filthy talk from the pulpit! Who would ever believe it? I feel sick from what I heard is a common joke for Mark Driscoll to use. May he repent before it's too late.

“ A much needed sermon! ”
Thank you brother Phil for speaking out loudly and clearly against the diabolical tendency of using foul and kinky language from the pulpit, stage or wherever these "actors" perform from. From Spain with love,

“ Well said. ”
This sermon itself exemplifies the principle of sound doctrine communicated through sound speech.

“ Great Sermon! ”
Who would have dreamed that a sermon like this would have to be preached to those in the pulpit. Shame on you, when you think we have to become like to the world to win them to Christ Bless you Phil. I praise my Father that there is still men who love God's Word and contend for the faith.
