This is an hard saying; who can hear it? In the sermon "A word about women from the King of the church," Reverend David Silversides preaches particularly on 1 Corinthians 14, verses 34 and 35: "(34) Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. (35) And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church." In keeping with "Old French silence", "c. 1200", women are to "keep silence", "muteness, state of being silent" or "absence of sound" in the body of Christ, the church (http://www.etymonline.com/search?q=keep+silence). In keeping with "late Old English predician, a loan word from Church Latin", women are forbidden "to preach, give a sermon", "to proclaim publicly, announce", "to proclaim, to say", "to show" or to "pronounce solemnly" the Word of God "in front of, before" the body of Christ, the church (http://www.etymonline.com/word/preach)." Nevertheless, Proverbs 31:1-31 are "(1) The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him."
Great Sermon! This a useful sermon for clearing up common misconceptions concerning oaths and vows. Pastor Silversides plainly shows what oaths and vows are, their lawfulness, uses, and obligation, as well as the care with which they should be used and kept. Very practical!
Great Sermon! Excellent introduction to the topic of covenanting, as well as to the Solemn League and Covenant. This sermon clearly sets forth the historical background of the SLC and also its biblical basis. May the Lord give those of us who hold to the Covenant grace to remain faithful until the Lord grants our people repentance for their covenant breaking!
Great Sermon! Yes, may God give us grace to hallow His name in this evil day. It's so sad to see how even professing Christians treat His great name with irreverence! This sermon should cause us all to examine ourselves to discover how we may be dishonoring our blessed Saviour.
Doctrinal and Practical! Pastor Beers shows in this sermon that as Christ humbled himself by taking on human flesh, so ought we to humble ourselves. Also, we love this quote from the sermon: "In his life, Christ kept the law; in his death, Christ silenced the law." Great quote!
Important Message! Pastor Silversides does a wonderful job of showing the superiority of the Scottish Psalter to all other English metrical translations of the Psalms. Our Psalter is a true gem of exceeding excellence! It is also true that in a time such as our own, when the church is so weak and fragmented, we should cleave to the good things we have received from the times when the church was stronger and more unified, such as the Authorized Version of the Bible and the Scottish Psalter, not to mention faithful church standards such as those produced by the Westminster Assembly. Now is not the time for novelty and innovation, but rather for walking in the old paths!
Great Sermon! Excellent introduction to exclusive psalmody! In addition to the irrefutable argument Pastor Silversides makes for the exclusive use of the inspired Psalter in worship, we would like to add that singing the Psalms has been of tremendous spiritual benefit to us. We've been singing the Psalms for about eighteen years, and as our knowledge and understanding of the Psalms has grown, we've found them to be a means of increasing our understanding of the rest of the Bible, as well. Our faith in and love for the Saviour has deepened so much as a result. We can't imagine ever going back to man-made hymns again!
Great Sermon! The Bible teaches the Regulative Principle of Worship, which can be summarized as requiring scriptural warrant for every element of worship. Even what is not forbidden in scripture must be omitted if not commanded. God has revealed how he desires us to worship Him in scripture, and if we love Him we will want to worship Him in the way which pleases Him, not in the way which pleases us. Also, our understanding of who God is and what He is like is shaped by our worship of Him, so it is of utmost importance to follow His instructions in order to avoid slipping into subtle forms of idolatry as we form false conceptions of God through false, man-made worship practices. Pastor Silversides vigorously and plainly sets forth this Regulative Principle of Worship as it is revealed in the Bible. Must listening for any Christian who wishes to worship God in Spirit and in truth!
Great Sermon! Pastor Silversides presents in this sermon a well reasoned defense of the necessity of creeds and confessions, and also holds forth the excellency of the Westminster Confession of Faith. For a church to state that it believes the Bible or believes in Jesus is too ambiguous, as even many of the cults will say as much. It is necessary to clearly state what a church believes the Bible teaches, which is one of the purposes fulfilled by the Westminster Confession.
Pastor Silversides urges everyone to read the Westminster Confession, and we agree! If you've never read it, you'll be amazed at what a helpful guide it is to understanding biblical teaching!
Classic! We first heard this sermon about fifteen years ago when we were new to the Reformed faith. A friend who had recently visited in the Loughbrickland congregation gave it to us on cassette tape! We have listened to this sermon many times since, and always find it to be not only profitable, but thrilling! Thank you, Pastor Silversides, and much thanksgiving also to our Sovereign Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!
Great Sermon! A forthright assessment of the popular but wicked holiday, Halloween. If you're uncertain of what the Lord would have you do in regard to this holiday, be sure to listen to this sermon!
