Great Sermon! Free Will (as in make a decision for Christ or The Hour of Decision) is quite simply a denial of Grace and of Christ's finished work. It is plain and simple blasphemy. Thank you so much for this entire series. Jon
Great Sermon! Very eye opening sermon. Dr Clark defends propositional truth in Scripture against the irrational claims of Van Til, that not even in one point the “truth” of Scripture intersects with God’s truth.
Great Sermon! great message."No significant theological differences between the churches"- they have succeeded for the most part. Arminianism and Romanism are nearly one in the same.
This is a must listen for the TRUE believer.
Great Sermon! from the pdf-The West has been in collapse for more than a century.The Biblical theology that created Western civilization five hundred years ago has all but disappeared in the West. The rejection of Christianity in North America and Europe, and the rise of several false religions – including
Arminianism,Romanism,Pentecostalism, atheism, and mysticism – have led to the collapse of the W est. That collapse is marked by,or, more accurately, is the dissolution of the Biblical family
(husband, wife, and children); the economic and political regimentation of the individual and business enterprises;
government ownership and control of most educational institutions; the growth of crime; the waning of civility; the
acceptance of public profanity, obscenity, and homosexuality; and the resurgence of brutality...
It is no accident that the language of Chapter 26 of the Westminster Confession of Faith was changed under the influence of Postmillennialism to omit the Assembly’s
identification of the pope as Antichrist: "There is no other head of the Church but the Lord Jesus Christ: nor can the Pope of Rome in any sense be head thereof; but is that Antichrist, that man of sin and son of perdition, that exalteth himself in the Church against Christ, and all that is called God." - amen
Great Sermon! I am so glad I listened to this message. It's not often we hear solid teaching that dispels lies causing controversy among believers. What was interesting was discovering the man men teaching and preaching to Christians regularly who are actually apostates. There literature is being promoted in many churches without a clue that the doctrine is Romish to the hilt. Did they ever know the truth? I recognized only one who aligned wholeheartedly with Rome's teaching. It was Chuck Colson, a biblical novice at best. He has done tremendous damage to Christianity. It was easy for me to discern J. I Packer as having align his teaching with Rome. There are so many more that I am glad you pointed out.
Is it any wonder why Jesus called his house a house of prayer that the will of the Father be done? We need to pray. We need to pray as we read scripture. We need to learn doctrine in the most serious way if we're going to make any impact in the world.
A Critically Important Lecture Dr. Robbins explains how Van Til's subtle rejection of the authority of propositional revelation has helped facilitate the construction of unbiblical views of justification. Given the state of the modern Reformed churches the importance of this lecture cannot be overstated.
Great Sermon! The Bible is Gods inerrant Word. It alone has power to save! The Holy Spirit is the inerrant interpreter. Men cannot obtain salvation nor assurance thereof from other men, even very learned men.
They hear the Word and God converts them. The reformers risked everything to rightly reject the RCC perversion of scripture. They were instrumental in getting the Bible to the masses! Suddenly revival broke out! These men faced martyrdom as well the masses of believers! They were inprisoned, tortured burned killed, not only by the papacy but also by the reformers themselves!
Seems men inevitably feel threatened by loss of power they never owned in the first place. If we truly believe that God is sovereign and His Word is sufficient then the consequences are up to Him. All men are sinners and as such inherently fallible and often their reason and logic goes off the rails. The reformers did not agree with each other and their pride and prejudice again divided the church.
Gods Word has the power unto salvation!God trusted mere fisherman to go and preach the Gospel to all nations. Not to go to Greece and sit around discussing the meaning of Gods Word and develop their logic, confessions and rules. They simply taught Christ and Him crucified, anyone who will believe on Him and Him Alone.
Very concerning..... We did not get any reference to Scripture at all here - though it was promised!
We did however, have plenty of quotes from and lists of names of men.
Baptists, and this gentleman, who aren't aware of the First London Confession of 1644, may be interested to compare it with the 1689. It was no replica of the Westminster.
While we can be glad for all that we can learn from history, surely when we stand before the judgement seat of Christ, we must have our own personal confession of The Faith, and this we obtain must obtain from Scripture by the help of the Holy Spirit.
Great Sermon! The worship of women continues unabated in today's modern church, even in the so-called, conservative Reformed Church. It complies with political correctness, and pursuit of money rather than a holy God, and his word. These practices are disrespectful of both men and women, because it denies the truth of the authority of God's word. Until feminism is soundly repudiated by faithful preachers, it will continue to erode and deny the entire jurisdiction of the church by denying the indispensable role of logic in theology by replacing it with feelings, experiences, and emotions.
