Matt Chandler, Pastor of The Village Church in Dallas, Texas, is a gospel-centered and passionate preacher of the Word of God. While I have been seriously disappointed in some of the associations in the Evangelical world that Matt has chosen to keep, his gospel preaching has remained strong. This video is his topical presentation for the release of his book The Explicit Gospel, Crossway 2012.
This is the raw rebuke of American Evangelicalism that is needed. The gospel of Christ is being forgotten and buried under a mound of moralism, self-righteousness, and even post-modern autonomy. Pastor Chandler does a great job of engaging his listeners, and relating to the young adult crowd who has mostly left the Christian church in America. I would take issue with certain terms that Matt uses, but overall he always hits the bullseye. Check this out, and share with a friend.
A word that may be too obscure and technical for people to remember anymore. Propitiation. Whoa. Paul wrote the most central text in the entire Bible when he said
God set forth [Jesus] as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus (Rom. 3:25-26 NKJV).
RW Glenn, pastor of Redeemer Bible Church in Minnetonka, Minnesota, gives us a brief blast of theology centered on propitiation, set to kinetic typing. Soak this in, believer, it is life and health for our souls.
Not that I am Lutheran, but I love hearing their perspective on theology (old Martin Luther was sort of the shining star of the Reformation).
Pastor Jonathan Fisk is a zealous young Lutheran pastor who uses his video blog Worldview Everlasting to impart loads of doctrinal wisdom, and to share his theological gold from his deep pockets of learning. Here he answers a Roman Catholic’s question about Romanism, and he sheds fresh light on the history, doctrine, and critical problems of that false religion.
The religion of Rome is the enemy of Christ Jesus and His gospel – and the Pope is an antichrist. Pastor Fisk explains it well:
What do you think? I think he did a great job making clear distinctions here, exposing some of the most heinous heresies of the Roman religion. I hope you’ve been helped by this.
