Most Christians have heard of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformers. But there is good reason why you have probably never heard of their contemporaries, the Zwickau prophets. In the following two videos, R.C. Sproul and Steve Lawson explain who they were and why they left no lasting legacy.
The principle of Sola Scripturaâ€”Scripture aloneâ€”lies at the heart of the Protestant Reformation. Rejecting the pope as God's voice on earth required that there be a true and superior authority on which Christians could depend. Replacing the pope with someone else who claimed direct revelation from God would have only served to perpetuate the original problem. The scope and extent of the Reformation legacy, still felt today, is primarily due to the Reformers' unshakable commitment to God's unchanging revelation found in the pages of your Bible.
A major objective of the Strange Fire conference is to reassert and reemphasize the sufficiency and supremacy of Scripture for all of Christian life, practice, and ministry. For more information about Strange Fire, please visit the conference website. . . .
Great Sermon! You have just been looking at the wrong places. Dr. Macarthur's sermons are easily available, 100s of them at his ministry's website: http://www.gty.org/resources/s ermons. I listened to over a hundred sermons of his a year or two ago- in one or two months. It is a treasure of biblical truth and a marvelous resource for students of scriptures.

Great Sermon! It is very difficult to get sermons by John MacArthur. I have tried and each time I only get these one or two minute sermons. Is it possible to get real sermons of thirty minutes and more
