Your Weakness Should Drive You to God (Paul Washer)
http://www.heartcrymissionary.com Should our weaknesses and shortcomings keep us from coming to God, or should they drive us to Him? Is our problem that we are weak by human standards, or is it that we don't recognize our weakness without God? Paul Washer explains in this short clip. HT: http://www.youtube.com/sermonindex

The Slavery of Serving Worldliness (Paul Washer)
Link to the full sermon video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FOKbtXq-y0 "Oh that my child be godly. Oh that my child give it all for the sake of Christ. Oh that my child live for Him. Oh that my child not be enslaved to the very things that so enslave me. Do you realize, now listen to this, there's a balance in everything, there is... but do you realize that if you would just take an agenda/write down a list of how much time you invest in your children in extra curricular activities (versus) how much time you invest in your children with regard to godliness. We buy things, we fill them full of media, we put them in the world, and we carry them every place on the face of the earth all throughout the week that our lives are so busy and scattered that we can't even sit a meal and what are we doing?! We're making our children enslaved to the very master that enslaves us and ruins our lives instead of teaching our children only one thing is needed: devotion to Christ." - Paul Washer "No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. "Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. "Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." - Jesus Christ (Mat 6:24-34)

"The Seeker-Sensitive Movement: Your Thoughts Al and R.C..."
This clip is posted with permission from Ligonier Ministries. To purchase this message, please visit http://www.ligonier.org "...It's a strategy of unbelief. The 'minister' wants to grow his church, the 'minister' wants to see success, and so he's looking for all these programs and all these techniques to get people to come in... But he never goes over the bridge and gets to the Word. If you want a power in your Church, be an expository preacher; preach the Word because that's where the Spirit is. Isn't that God's strategy? If we believe God's strategy, we're going to preach the Word." - R.C. Sproul I think the movement is falsely so called. If it were really "seeker-sensitive" it would be sensitive to those who have been regenerated by God's Spirit and are actively seeking Him.

Justification and Imputed Righteousness (R.C. Sproul)
This clip is posted with permission from Ligonier Ministries. To purchase this message, please visit http://www.ligonier.org What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, has found? For if Abraham were justified by works, he has something in which to boast; but not before God. For what says the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that works is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that works not, but believes on him that justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describes the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputes righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin. Comes this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness. How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision. And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also: And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised. For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his descendants, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. For if they who are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: Because the law works wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the descendants; not to those only who are of the law, but to those also who are of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, (As it is written, I have made you a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who gives life to the dead, and calls those things which are not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall your descendants be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body as now dead, when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; Who was delivered for our offenses, and was raised again for our justification. (Rom 4:1-25) http://www.ligonier.org

Love is the Fulfilment of the Law. (Paul Washer)
If someone tells me that faith is more important than love or hope is more important than love, I turn away because Paul said that of these three the greatest is love. Faith and hope are essential, but as Paul said, "without love, I am nothing." Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, "You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet," and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. (Rom 13:8-10)

The Slavery of Seeking the Praise of Men  (Paul Washer)
You shall not covet your neighbor's house, you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor any thing that is your neighbor's. (Exo 20:17) Take heed that you give not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise you have no reward of your Father who is in heaven. Therefore when you give your alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But when you give alms, let not your left hand know what your right hand does: That your alms may be in secret: and your Father who sees in secret himself shall reward you openly. And when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But you, when you pray, enter into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret shall reward you openly. But when you pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not therefore like them: for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask him. (Mat 6:1-8) Then spoke Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not according to their works: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, And love the uppermost places at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. But you be not called Rabbi: for one is your Teacher, even Christ; and all you are brothers. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, who is in heaven. Neither be you called masters: for one is your Teacher, even Christ. (Mat 23:1-10) (Paul Washer)

The Cross the Modern Preachers Put in the Back (Paul Washer)
It's what's been missing. "You see, this is the Cross that all these modern-day "preachers" put in the back of the store and not in the store front window because it's a shameful thing, it's a horrid thing, it's a terrible thing. Some of you are looking at each other as though, 'I've never heard anything like this before.' Absolutely! And that's the Cross has so little power in your life. This is a horrid thing, a vile thing, not the kind of thing you wear around your neck." - Paul Washer For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us who are saved it is the power of God.

How Many Times Have You "Got Saved"? (Paul Washer)

Paul Washer explains why salvation is a purely a gift from God. It's given by God not because of some works done by a man or the man's personal merit. If it was, the man could boast.

The Psychological Manipulation of the "Invitation" (Washer)
"That's what the cults do." - Paul Washer Many people think that because they prayed a prayer, walked an aisle once in their life, and/or raised their hand when all the heads are bowed because their "autonomous" emotions convinced them to at a certain point in time that they are saved even though they live as worldly and carnal as everyone else in the world. My question is "When do we just start saying that if a person continues in unbelief, worldliness, and carnality regardless of what they did at a point in time then the are unbelieving, a worldling, and carnal? Do we really need votes that much as to forsake their soul?" We need preachers like Paul Washer; not politicians behind pulpits. http://www.heartcrymissionary.com

Propitiation:   (n)  \prō-pi-shē-ˈā-shən\  ἱλαστήριον (Paul Washer)
For those of you who do not know what this word means regarding Christ, I wanted to post this to help you understand what exactly the gracious Lord has done. For those of you who do understand the definition of this word, Paul Washer's comments will strengthen your faith. For those of you who do not care, may God show mercy to your pathetic, cowardly, ignorant, man-fearing soul. propitiation (n): pro·pi·ti·a·tion \prō-ˌpi-shē-ˈā-shən\ This means the turning away of wrath by an offering. It is similar to expiation but expiation does not carry the nuances involving wrath. Greek word: ἱλαστήριον hilastērion defn: 1) relating to an appeasing or expiating, having placating or expiating force, expiatory; a means of appeasing or expiating, a propitiation 1a) used of the cover of the ark of the covenant in the Holy of Holies, which was sprinkled with the blood of the expiatory victim on the annual day of atonement (this rite signifying that the life of the people, the loss of which they had merited by their sins, was offered to God in the blood as the life of the victim, and that God by this ceremony was appeased and their sins expiated); hence the lid of expiation, the propitiatory 1b) an expiatory sacrifice 1c) a expiatory victim But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;... Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God has set forth to be a PROPITIATION through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; (Rom 3:21; 24-25) And he is the PROPITIATION for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (1Jn 2:2) In this is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the PROPITIATION for our sins. (1Jn 4:10)

The Modern Church Worships and Serves Secular Humanism. (Washer)
Then said Jesus unto him, Begone, Satan: for it is written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve. (Mat 4:10) I'm convinced that many in the modern American church would very much like to have dyslexia so they could at least have a somewhat valid excuse to explain why they replace the phrase "Lord your God" with "your 'autonomous, well-liked, infallible' self". Does humanism honor God? Does self-esteem? Does Joel Osteen sell books? What truly honors God may not be the same thing that will sell a lot of a businessman's books at Barnes and Nobles. J. Gresham Machen wrote, "So it always is: a low view of law always brings legalism in religion; a high view of law makes a man a seeker after grace." It holds true when one examines what Osteen is giving in his seminars and what Washer is preaching in the pulpit. The contrast is obvious. http://www.heartcrymissionary.com

According to His Choice, Not Our Works... (R.C. Sproul)
This clip is posted with permission from Ligonier Ministries. To purchase this message, please visit http://www.ligonier.org I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit, That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: Who are Israelites; to whom pertains the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed forever. Amen. Not as though the word of God has taken no effect. For they are not all Israel, who are of Israel: Neither, because they are the descendants of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall your descendants be called. That is, They who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the descendants. For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sarah shall have a son. And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac; (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calls;) It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. For he says to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that wills, nor of him that runs, but of God that shows mercy. For the scripture says unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised you up, that I might show my power in you, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. Therefore has he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardens. You will say then unto me, Why does he yet find fault? For who has resisted his will? Nay but, O man, who are you that replies against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why have you made me thus? Has not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor? What if God, willing to show his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had before prepared unto glory, Even us, whom he has called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? As he says also in Hosea, I will call them my people, who were not my people; and her beloved, who was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, You are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God. Isaiah also cries concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth. And as Isaiah said before, Except the Lord of hosts had left us a descendant, we had been as Sodom, and been made like unto Gomorrah. What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, who followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith. But Israel, who followed after the law of righteousness, has not attained to the law of righteousness. Why? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumbling stone; As it is written, Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense: and whosoever believes on him shall not be ashamed. (Rom 9:1-33) For by grace areyou saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest anyman should boast. (Eph. 2:8-9) http://www.ligonier.org

Rick Warren Twisting Scripture (WOTMR) [2of2]

Sheesh. http://www.wayofthemasterradio.com
