" Justification, Part 1 "
  Michael Gowens

photos/2-464305897.JPG "Justification Precisely Defined" is the title of this series which was broadcasted on the radio program, "Sovereign Grace Today" in 2005. We have these broadcasts in 4 parts.

Elder Gowens brings his teaching ability in rightly dividing this biblical subject. You will learn what the word justify means according to Scriptures. Is justification a change in person or a pronouncement? What is the verdict? You will learn the differences between justification and condemnation, between the mirror images of ourselves and the law's view, between regeneration and justification. Can we mix metaphors of the delivery room and the court room? How important is the Cross of Jesus to the work of justification? These and many other topics will be discussed in detail.

This series will cause the preacher to reaffirm his beliefs and become better acquainted with the importance of justification and will also equip our church members in knowing the truth in contrast with the many popular notions of today. If you have the idea that justification is something we can do as in, 'to make just' need to listen in.

Hope you will be blessed in your study of God’s word.

To continue to part 2, from the Sermon section, search for ‘Michael Gowens’ and then scroll to ‘Justification, Part 2.’

" Why Do Good People Suffer, 1976 "
  Sonny Pyles

photos/2-787148816.jpg How can we consider our afflictions, "light?" Suffering is a reality we must often endure. Who should we blame? Why do godly people suffer?

At the time of this sermon, Elder Pyles references a good man he knew who was suffering. He said, "There is something, to night, in my carnal, natural reasoning, that tells me that's not right." He referred to a once very able preacher and writer, J.D. Holder. "For 5 years in bed, mind gone, unable to communicate - like a vegetable."

In this sermon Elder Pyles speaks to the questions raised by Asaph in Psalms 73, in a sermon titled, "Why Do Good People Suffer?"

It is a lengthy sermon but full of Scripture on the subject of suffering, (Over 1 hour, 8 minutes.)

Some of the interesting points made in this sermon cover suffering in general, the difference between punishment and chastisement and our view points toward each. 2 extremes parents have in training children, 4 steps of blame, negatives and positives, Paul's thorn in the flesh, sufferings and glory - just to name a portion of relevant topics.

This sermon was preached at Eureka church in Georgia, 1976. (You will hear reference to then Pastor, Elder Raybon Lord.)

Good quality recording preserved for you, now 42 years later.
