The Great Divide

We are saved by grace through faith in Christ alone, but on the day that we stand before the judgment throne, we will be judged according to our works. Those who have lived according to their selfish ambitions in rebellion against God will suffer for all eternity in the torment of hell. Those who have persevered in godliness will receive the blessings of eternal life, honor, peace, and the matchless glory of Christ.

No Exceptions, No Excuses

After setting forth the theology of universal human sinfulness and God’s judgment in Romans 1, Paul anticipates the response of his Jewish brethren. They would heartily agree with Paul’s condemnation of the Gentile world. Thus, Paul turns to address the deadly nature of their self-righteous hypocrisy and help them understand that all of us are without excuse before our Holy God.

The Wicked Fruit of Depravity

This final passage of Romans one contains the third statement of God’s judicial abandonment of sinful men. Because men did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them over to depraved minds. The result is that human thinking, character, and behavior is utterly unrighteous and wicked. So much so that men not only perpetrate evil, but give hearty approval to those who join them in it.

Given Over to Due Penalty – Part 2

Homosexuality is, in itself, a judgement of God upon sinful humanity. Just as biblical marriage is a living parable of the relationship between Christ and His church, homosexual marriage is a living parable of how humanity has traded the truth of God for a lie and now worships itself. The truth is that sexual sin is pandemic to all of humanity, but thankfully, no one is beyond the reach of Christ’s love and grace. This sermon explores the specifics of homosexual behavior in Romans 1:26-27.

God’s Sovereignty Over Earthly Powers

How should Christians think about the recent Supreme Court ruling? The kingdoms of this world are full of evil and corruption, but God sits in the heavens and rules with absolute wisdom and power. And the Son of Man rules a greater kingdom, which alone is our everlasting hope.

Given Over to Due Penalty – Part 1

In the providence of God, this sermon was crafted to address the Supreme’s Court’s decision to legalize homosexual marriage in the United States. After providing an overview of the doctrine of the body, the concept of God’s judicial abandonment is explored along with implications of what it means to live in a Post-Christian culture.

The Dark Exchange

From verses 19-21, we learned that because of God’s natural revelation, humanity is without excuse. The beauty, design, and complexity of creation reveals the truth of God as Creator and Lord, and God thus constrains humanity to rightly acknowledge Him. However, man in his sinfulness refuses to do so, giving himself over to a progression of darkness that leads to idolatry.

God Is Evident

What about the person on the island who never was able to hear the gospel? He never had the truth or the opportunity to respond. How can he be under God’s judgment and wrath? This is a common question, and the answer lies in this text. Every person is without excuse because God has made Himself evident through creation.

Daniel and the Lion’s Den

How should Christians behave when the world persecutes them? Listen to this sermon to hear about the “excellent spirit” God put in Daniel, and his faithful perseverance in the face of great adversity. Find out how Daniel is a type of the Lord Jesus, and how the gospel gives us strength to endure in faith.
