Common problems with contemporary preaching

Christian Conservativism, Russell Moore, and Talk Radio

“Dismissal of the law leads to terrible consequences at every point—in our coming into the Christian life and in our continuing in the Christian life. It always leads to a superficial, glib, lightly happy Christian life, which has a false joy. There are people who say, ‘I’ve never had a doubt ever since I was converted.’ Some of them very much need to have doubts.” (D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones)

“The death of Christ is efficacious to destroy and demolish the depravity of our flesh, and his resurrection, to effect the renovation of a better nature.” (John Calvin)

Before the Throne

BEFORE THE THRONE

“God has chosen us despite our unworthiness. He has sent Christ to die for our sins and raised him from the dead for our justification. He has called us to faith through the preaching of the gospel and he has confirmed those promises through the sacraments. And he has done all of this so that we might be numbered among the assembly of those who enter his presence on the Lord’s Day and add our voices to the heavenly choir, singing praises to the one who sits and the throne and to the lamb.” (Kim Riddlebarger)

The Resurrection and the Life

THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE

“Christ is the resurrection of the declarative glory of God in this lower world… God’s declarative glory was marred by man’s sin: His essential glory cannot be marred by men nor devils, let them do their utmost; but, I say, His declarative glory was marred. When man sinned, he threw off God as his Sovereign… He swore allegiance to hell, in opposition to God, the glory of His justice and holiness, and all His perfections, particularly His truth. All these perfections of God were sullied and stained; there was a blot cast upon them, as far as man was able. Well, but Christ came to wipe away the dust that was cast upon them by man; and, accordingly, He raises them to a greater splendor than if man had not sinned.” (Ebenezer Erskine)
