Sermon Worth Hearing on Racism

I’m not always the biggest Jordan Hall fan but this sermon he preached on racism is worth hearing.  I subscribe to his podcast and enjoyed this sermon very much.  I agree with him.  The answer to our national troubles (and world for that matter) is simple: the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Nothing else can transform like the gospel (2 Corinthians 5:17).

My prayer is that the Church will preach the gospel.  The answer is not found in summits, endless articles on race, giving in to socialists like #blacklivesmatter but rather the answer for the Christian is simple: preach the gospel.  Preach the gospel to all men (Matthew 28:19-20) and make disciples of all men.  Jesus died so that all colors of people can come and be one in Christ Jesus.  Just as the Lord divided the people because of their sins in Genesis 11 so the Lord reunited His people in Acts 2.  That is the power of the gospel.

Making Sense of the New Perspective of Paul

I know very little, I confess, of the theological debate among mainly Reformed theologians and men such as N.T. Wright, Bishop of Durham from the Anglican Church.  I first heard about this debate several years ago between Wright and John Piper.  I also confess that I own only one book by Wright, The Resurrection of the Son of God, which is a massive book on the truthfulness of the resurrection of Christ.  Wright is to be commended for his stand within in the Anglican Church for sound doctrine and for the most part, he comes across as evangelical in many theology issues.

That said, I know little to nothing about the new perspective of Paul.  I know that men such as James Dunn and Wright have been instrumental in building up a following on this issue but I admit that I know little about it.

So that is why I am linking up to this teaching by Phil Johnson on this issue.  I listened to this teaching last night while working and found it to be enlightening.  I believe Johnson does a good job of critiquing Wright and the new perspective of Paul movement.  In a solid but down to earth way, Johnson explains what Wright teaches and why it is wrong.  It is well worth listening to.

You can find the teaching here.
