Paul Washer - America’s Jeremiah

Posted on Dec. 12, 2009

This evening, Christ was preached. Paul Washer is a man like Jeremiah, who speaks because he cannot hold it in. He closed this wonderful Friday of the conference by preaching the Gospel. I could say much about all that he said, but his message was very simple: “Your home-education, nice clothes, and manners cannot save you. Flee to Christ!” 

“My desire is to strip you of every hope in the flesh, to shut you off from every hope whatsoever of somehow making yourself right with God by your own virtue and merit.” If you repent of trying to clothe yourself in the filthy rags of your own righteousness and fall on Christ, He will save you. Then you will grow in Christ-likeness, and you will know His presence; this is the Gospel. 

Our beginning point and our ending point, our motivation and our reward, our desire and our satisfaction, must be in Christ alone. “Judge everything you do by this standard: is it really only for Him? If he took everything away and left you only with Him, would you still have joy unspeakable, because your hope is in Him?” 

“Throw yourself on Christ, and you will not be disappointed.”

Biblical Youth Ministry

Posted on Dec. 12, 2009

This evening I tried to set before the gathered families a Biblical analysis of youth ministry.

I grew up along with the culture of youth ministry—read all the books, tried all the methods. But I came to realize that the rise of programmatic, age-segregated youth ministry in the mid-twentieth century was actually a new invention in the history of the church. For the first time in history, trained youth ministers have been recruited in order to put the young people of the church in the hands of so-called experts. Now, at the beginning of the 21st century, churches are shelling out millions of dollars on programs, buildings, and entertainment for youth. The focus of these churches has been shifted from evangelism to entertainment under the name of evangelism and church leaders are setting aside the commands of God for church and family life in order to grow the church…

Dr. Joe Spoke, and We Listened

Posted on Dec. 12, 2009

Dr. Joe Morecraft gave our first keynote of the evening tonight, making the case that Scripture is sufficient for all of life. Of course, this very claim demanded that he use Scripture itself to do so.

Starting with Deuteronomy 4, which forbids adding to or taking away anything from the Word of God, he went on from passage to passage.

At one level, the answer to whether Scripture is sufficient to rule us is a simple question: What better standard can there be? If not this standard, what standard? “The Bible is divinely authoritative on everything about which it speaks, and it speaks about everything.”

Joe is a man that is filled with the Holy Spirit and preaches passionately. So I was not surprised to see tears in his eyes as he prayed in closing that all of his listeners would walk away dedicated to tell the whole world about Jesus Christ and His sufficient Word – until the knowledge of God covers the earth as the waters cover the sea.

Men’s Chorale - God of Our Fathers

Posted on Dec. 12, 2009

As I write, the SoS Men’s Chorale is once again regaling attendees with a glorious hymn of the faith. “God of our fathers” was composed for the 4th of July Centennial in 1876, at a time when Americans still acknowledged with gratitude God’s providence in the founding of our nation. The hymn’s message of multi-generational commitment to our fathers’ vision and faithful walking with our fathers’ God is incredibly appropriate as we seek to apply the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture, a doctrine which was recovered and passed down to us by our Reformation forefathers…
