Random sermon quote: "Leading evangelicals in our world today will not preach sin or guilt because it makes people in the pew feel uncomfortable. 'We don't want to feel uncomfortable, we don't want to feel unhappy, we don't want to mourn, we don't want to be sad - tell us something that makes us happy, tell us something that changes our emotions!'" - Blessed Are They That Mourn

Latest Sermon - "Pride And Punishment" - --
I was conducting a funeral about a week and a half ago, and the undertaker was telling me about an epitaph he had seen recently in another cemetery, and it just simply read 'I did it my way'. Imagine that on your gravestone! 'I did it my way'. He was a believer, this undertaker, and he said that all he could think of was Proverbs 14:12: 'There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death'. It's only pride could make a man say, even on his deathbed, 'I did it my way'.
Now people say: 'Look, you're preaching to me, and I'm not a bad person. I mightn't be a Christian the way you understand it, but I try my best. I try to help my neighbour, and I try to be an upstanding member of the community and society in general'. Listen, you're missing the point, and many people do miss the point: you could be the most moral person, and at the very same time be the most proud person in the world - why? Because you refuse to go God's way, you refuse to submit to God's wisdom. That is a grave problem, even with religious people - they are filled with pride. All of us have it, but what we do with it is the issue. My friend, the reality is: pride is the sin that made the devil the devil, and pride is the sin that will make us like the devil!

"Old Paths" | PDF | Kindle | ePUB
by J.C. Ryle
It was the prophet Jeremiah who first used the expression 'old paths' and assured those who followed them that they would find 'rest for their souls' (Jeremiah 6:16). J.C. Ryle was of the same conviction and wrote: 'The longer I live the more I am convinced that the world needs no new Gospel, as some profess to think. I am thoroughly persuaded that the world needs nothing but bold, full, unflinching teaching of the 'old paths''.
This is a series of systematically arranged papers on the leading truths of Christianity. Helpful thoughts will be found here on such topics as the inspiration of Scripture, the soul, sin, forgiveness, justification, the Holy Spirit, faith, repentance, election and much more.
J. C. RYLE (1816-1900) was a prominent writer, preacher, and Anglican clergyman in nineteenth-century Britain. He is the author of the classic 'Expository Thoughts on the Gospels' and retired as the bishop of Liverpool.
Available to order from amazon.com and amazon.co.uk, and also available as a FREE PDF, Kindle or ePUB ebook from Preach The Word - 536 pages.
