God Is In Control—But Where Was He?

When the dead are counted, the number will be more than we can bear,” said Mayor Giuliani. And so it is, the number 5,500 is more than we can bear. Why did God not protect Washington and New York City? The same question was asked back in A.D. 410, when Aleric the Goth overpowered the guards at the Salarian Gate and trashed the City of Rome. The citizens were angry, and blamed the disaster on the God of the Christians. They insisted that their own pagan gods would have done a better job of defending the city … Read More >

Is The Doctrine Of Hell Fair?

We at The Moody Church believe in the doctrine of hell—eternal conscious punishment. At the great White Throne (Revelation 20:11ff), billions of human beings will stand before God to hear their judgment. Lacking faith in Jesus Christ, these people will be sentenced to eternal punishment in hell. Obviously this needs explanation. What standard is used in this judgment?  Paul taught that those who do not know the Gospel will be judged by their own conscience and by the light gleaned from nature. This judgment will show that no one has lived up to what they intuitively and rationally … Read More >

The Jealousy Of God

Sermon preached at The Moody Church, Sunday morning, January 25, 1953 When I spoke to you about the Christian and worship from the Old Testament story of Abraham and Isaac, I showed you something of what is involved in Christian discipleship: the price a man or woman must pay if they would walk with God and be used by Him. It is left to every individual to make the choice, whether they will walk with God or choose another path. May people who have faced the cost of this kind of thing rather think that it’s too big a … Read More >

The Worth Of A Soul

We’ll use a very familiar text tonight: “What shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul?”—Mark 8:36 Now Jesus was manifested to destroy the works of the devil. And the big work of the devil was to cause men to undervalue their souls; worse still, to place no value upon them, and far worse still to be absolutely indifferent to the fact that their souls would live somewhere forever. Spoke in Plain Manner So Jesus, like a good lawyer at court, used everything that people understood to explain to them … Read More >

Carest Thou Not That We Perish?

We find this question in Mark 4:38: “He was in a hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow, and they awake Him and say unto Him, ‘Master, carest Thou not that we perish?’” The incident is familiar, I am sure, to most of you. The day had been a very busy one. The Lord Jesus Christ had preached some wonderful parables; He had effected some amazing cures. At the end of the day He and His disciples took ship to go to the other side of the sea of Galilee. Here the Lord of glory is … Read More >

Angels We Have Heard On High

The Holy Angels of Christmas An angel appeared to Mary; three times an angel spoke to Joseph and angels communicated the message of Jesus’ birth to the shepherds. Obviously, these heavenly beings did not disappear after the first century! Even those of us who have never seen an angel most probably have been helped by them since they are “ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation” (Hebrews 1:14). There was a time when those who believed in angels were thought of as misguided souls who existed on the fringe of … Read More >

Baptism

Baptism is one of the central events of a believer’s Christian life. Foreshadowed by the ritual cleansings performed by the Jewish community and the baptism of repentance administered by John the Baptist, Christian baptism is commanded for every believer. The Scripture institutes this act as an important ordinance in our life of obedient testimony (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Romans 6:4). What should the mode be? Sprinkling, pouring, and immersing are used, but biblically, baptism by immersion is preferable, although sickness and immobility may require another method. Baptism is usually performed by someone of spiritual authority within the … Read More >

Do Demons Exist And What Are They Like?

Within in the church, and throughout broader society, a great deal of mysticism and superstition surrounds the reality, ability, and work of demons. Because of this haze of opinions, we must root our understanding in Scripture.  The Demonic Narrative Satan is the origin of evil, the father of lies (John 8:44).  Satan and his angels apparently still have access to heaven because during the tribulation period, there will be a war in heaven and they will be cast out unto the earth (Revelation 12:7-9).  Though crushed by the work of Christ two thousand years ago … Read More >

The Lord’s Day, Its Privileges And Responsibilities

The Lord’s Day Alliance was organized fifty-three years ago in order to bring before the people of America the importance of preserving the Lord’s day against the encroachments of those who are seeking to turn our Christian Sunday into a continental Sabbath, as they call it—one which would be spent in pleasure and folly. I am very glad to agree to co-operate with the society by speaking this evening on “The Lord’s Day, Its Privileges and Responsibilities.” I will ask you to turn with me to three passages of Scripture, not exactly as texts, but by way of introducing … Read More >

Hell

My subject tonight is Hell. I do not care to picture hell to you, but I do want to talk in such a way tonight that you will find out what God says about hell; what the Bible teaches about hell. Hell is not a question of my opinion nor any other man’s opinion. It is all revealed through the Scriptures. God speaks of it plainly in His Word. I want you to go into the Bible with me tonight, and see if we cannot get some light on this awful subject. In the 15th chapter of First Corinthians, 45th … Read More >
