‘Ministering in Changing Circumstances’ – Sermon clip from David Karoon (4 Min):

(Right-Click Download)

Transcript:

“I hope the in the Stornoway RP Church you and I are not conservatives and traditionalists; those who worship the past because it is the past. Neither is we liberals; because be worship the present… we seek to be biblical Christians, we seek to be a biblical church. One that recognises that we are placed in such a time as this,  that we are placed in this place in order to speak with the voice of the prophets to a generation that is degenerate and on its way to a eternal death.

And it seems to me that the conservative church refuses to be sensitive to the changes in the culture in which we are placed.

Sometimes we refuse to be sensitive because we are ignorant of the changes… but sometimes it isn’t just ignorance. It is sheer arrogance, we think that we know everything; we assume that we have a monopoly of truth, and we are determined to pursue the path of the past.

The Apostle was not like that. He knew the changing circumstances, he was aware of the changing context and wherever God placed him, whatever restrictions the sovereign had placed upon him, the apostle Paul sought to continue his ministery within that changing context.

This is the problem with us as human beings; we are people of extremes, we are either completely insensitive to the changes or we are hyper-sensitive to the changes. The traditionalists & conservatives in the church are completely insensitive to changes that are taking place in our society. The liberals on the other hand are hyper-sensitive to the changes, and so they want the gospel to change, they want the church to change; they want everything to change in order to fit in with the prevailing culture of that day.

We are neither conservatives worshiping the past neither are we liberals worshiping that the feet of the present. We are biblical Christians worshiping at the feet of the triune God; father, Son and Holy Spirit.”

Sermons from Stornoway RP Church are now available to download. So you can finally hear our two best newest preachers for yourself! In the joy of the moment I decided to do something I’d had been planning to start for a while. Ladies and Gentleman, crank the bass up for a personal first and an RP second, please enjoy this sermon jam:

‘Live Your Confession‘[4min] – Rev David Karoon  (Full Sermon Here) 

I also have some Psalm-singing from S[tornoway]RPC, the recordings are low quality and its hard to make out the words. The Psalms are from the old Scottish psalters if you want to look them up. I really enjoyed just getting to hear our RP brothers & sisters on ‘The Isle of Lewis’ worship, made it more real to me.

Iain D. Campbell at Knockbracken

28 Feb

For any of you who weren’t able to get along to Knockbracken’s Bible Conference Week in early February, the talks have now been made available on their snazzy, redesigned website.

The Conference ran from the 13th-16th of February and Dr. Iain D Campbell (Point Free Church, Lewis) was speaking on Christ in Hebrews. Incidentally, don’t make the mistake I did and think that any one who is from Lewis will know any body else who ever has lived there.

These are well worth a listen as Dr. Campbell went through the following titles very effectively with great challenge and application for his listeners.

  1. The Person of Christ
  2. The Priesthood of Christ
  3. The Profession of Christ
  4. The Promise of Christ

Enjoy!

“Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the Heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with out weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may recieve mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:14-16

Shaftesbury Reformed Conference and GO Team

17 Feb

On Wednesday of last week, Shaftesbury Square RPC held it’s approximately annual Reformed Conference. Following on from the two day conference on John Calvin last year, two American speakers had been invited to give an address.  Dr. Joel Beeke, of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary and author of many books, and Dr. Joesph Pipa from Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary gave talks lasting about 45 minutes dealing with doctrinal issues, speaking to the average Church member, rather than just those with a special interest in theology.

Dr. Pipa’s address was on the subject Right with God. You can listen to it online at the Shaftesbury Sermon Audio site, or download it and listen to it on your mp3 player or iPod. After a short interval, Dr. Beeke spoke on Children of God. Again, this can be downloaded from the Sermon Audio website.

There were about 120 people, a very encouraging turn out for Shaftesbury. David McKay noted that of that number, around half were under the age of 30. Stafford Carson, present PCI moderator and speaker at last year’s conference was in attendance. Pray for all who heard the talks, and those who will hear them online, that God will use them to his glory.

Three days later, it was back to Shaftesbury for a one day GO Team. About 20 people assembled in the Church hall on Saturday morning before leaving to give out a flyer advertising the various means of outreach Shaftesbury undertakes to the houses in the areas near the Church building. Unlike other years, it wasn’t snowing, and was actually a very pleasant day, perfect for walking the streets of south Belfast.

The other side advertised the weekly Church services

About 5000 leaflets were given out on the day, leaving about 1000 for Paul and Philip to distribute over the next few weeks. Remember to pray for the lunchtimes services held on Thursdays starting on 4th March and for the men who will speak at those.

Later on that evening, some of the team went to Great Vic. Baptist to hear Stuart Olyott speak.

Ben passing on Joel and Steelo’s regards

The talks are not online yet, but when they are I’d guess you’ll be able to find them here.

Finally, Shaftesbury Fellowship is on tonight, Warren Peel speaking on God The Father. Tea at 6.45, talk around 7.30.
