You Will Glorify God!

If you haven't taken the time to download and listen to a sermon I recommended last week by Pastor Jeff Noblit of First Baptist Church of Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Please do your soul a great service and download it today. Below are just a couple of quotes from Pastor Noblit's message.

"When I read much about the seeker model church, or the emergent church or the Joel Osteen type of church it's glaringly clear to me that this is not a ingenious new way to present Christ, it's an old false way of doing church that actually denies the biblical Christ, the biblical gospel and does not build a biblical church. It's old liberalism in new clothing. And brothers I want to say to you any preacher who makes any effort to dumb down the doctrine of sin, the depravity of man, and calling men to repentance is not preaching the true gospel, that's not the gospel. It's not clever... it's wicked, it's dooming men's souls and leading millions to false assurance."

"You see what we need to remember brothers is our God is a purpose driven God, three times in Ephesians chapter 1 He tells us that the gospel and ministry of Christ is "to the praise of the glory of His grace" That's His purpose, His glory. The ultimate purpose has not been will never be the eternal souls of men being saved, that is not the ultimate purpose. God is absolutely powerful enough to redeem every soul had He wanted to, the ultimate purpose is the glory of God, and sir you will glorify God either in Hell vindicating His justice which should come against a sinner like you, or either in Heaven glorifying His Grace that got you there fully by His own doing but you will glorify God."

Praise be to the One True Living God for men like Pastor Noblitt who will boldly stand upon the Holy Writ and preach the singular truth of Christ crucified, dead, buried, and resurrected - the hinge upon which all of history turns!
