    Wonderful sermon and wonderful refutation of the Bobby Welch (ie..."the bean counter") branch of the Southern Baptist Convention. Yes, I had to go there :laugh: .

    Good Catch

    That was an interesting, to the point message. That was a good catch on your behalf. You had your spirit out looking, and new a good message when you came upon it. I don't use youtube, but, many of my friends have sent me some very good thoughts from other sights.

    Shalom, and blessings in 2008,

    Pastor Paul :type:

    Good message, he closes with a good truth on repentance. How can one truly repent then go back to the same sin they just repented of?

    The more I hear this man the more I get fired up.

    The more I look at my preaching and see if I am sharing the true Gospel- clearly.

    True repentance and true faith in Jesus Christ and Him alone.

    Some may not like this preacing but it is needed, it is required.

    "Lord, that you would burn this into me. That I would preach for a verdict, preach true repentance, preach true faith in Jesus Christ. Help me to do this. I cannnot do it own my own. " - that is my prayer.

    This is what worries me about repentance, that if I ever, ever commit the same sin again, I never really repented. Meanwhile temptation follows and tempts...and tempts....and tempts....

    Certainly a very skilled speaker. His ability to state frequently-heard themes in effective ways is impressive.

    Though saying if you are bored with his presentation you are not saved is a bit harsh.

    Yeah, Paul Washer is also my favorite preacher, Jerry. He has two great messages that I think everyone should hear : Examine Yourself - Tests of true Faith and Regeneration and Self Denial. Both amazing sermons!

    I kind of took it that he was saying that if you come to Church just to fill a seat and sit waiting for the preacher to get done(on a week after week ordeal) so you could get on with the day, maybe you need to question if you are really saved.

    The greek work for repentance is Metanoeo which simplified means a change of mind. Repentance describes a process which results in the changing of ones mind. In our case the mind is changing from sin to God.

    I don't believe one has truly repented of the sin if the mind is still occupied with the sin (temptation) or one does not have the Godly strength to resist the temptation. There is a difference between repenting and just saying you're sorry.

    If you want to start a new thread I will be glad to discuss my views of repentance in more detail after service, however, there is a very good recent thread by Bro Bob where he does an excellent job on this subject. Search for sorrow.

    2Co 7:10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

    Edited to add... or one does not have the Godly strength to resist the temptation

    A few weeks back I started a thread on repentance, too, but it was pretty much hijacked. lol

    My concern is that these type of teachings seem to add ongoing conditions to salvation--I would even call them works. And they start to create lists of things we must do, or not do, in order to be saved, or to use as tests of whether we are or are not saved. Often I do these works and pass these tests, while other times I do not, despite my desire to do so (and even that can fail me when I'm in a bad mood). So I am left unsure of whether the pastor is teaching that I am not saved, and wondering what more I have to do to be saved.

    When I hear a pastor teach that if you are restless or check your watch too often you are not saved, I think, "Maybe the pews are uncomfortable..." They often are. "Maybe the pastor's delivery was so dry and monotone, or his reasoning so full of holes, or he has preached on this exact same subject the exact same way again and again, or maybe his experience is so alien to mine that it's very hard to relate to...and I can hardly wait to get to the car to listen to radio ministry or to get home to get into my study Bible or the latest Piper book..." All these situations have happened to me, and I'm guessing I checked my watch a few times. I don't want to hear a pastor teach that because of this, I am not saved unless he is willing to help in some way I haven't already tried (new hoops to jump through).

    Preachers are solemnly charged by God and the Lord Jesus to preach the whole counsel of God faithfully (2 Tim 4:1-5).

    Paul Washers is a great example of what that looks like.

    Whole counsel? Are you referring to His Word? Many think they have the "whole counsel" when they add some things that "God told them."

    I see nothing in the verses cited that indicate a preacher could not be called with a specialization, say evangelism or eschatology.
