How Will They Believe If They Have Not Heard? A Sermon on Romans 10:13-15

How Will They Believe If They Have Not Heard? A Sermon on Romans 10:13-15
In Romans 10:13-15, the Apostle Paul declares that “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Having shared this truth, he asks a series of questions: "How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent?"Having heard, believed, and called upon Christ ourselves, every believer must be committed to going and proclaiming the excellencies of Christ to others.If you enjoy the sermons and written works of CH Spurgeon, check out the all-new CHSpurgeon.com Here you'll find sermon audio as well as resources by and about the Prince of Preachers.

The Resurrection is the Bedrock of Christianity | An Interview with Justin Bass (Replay)
The apostle Paul wrote that "if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain" (1 Corinthians 15:14).

What's the Difference between Kings and Chronicles in the Old Testament?
Reading the books of 1 & 2 Chronicles after reading 1 & 2 Kings can feel like deja vu. You might ask yourself, 'Didn't I just read this?'There are so many similarities between the books of Kings and Chronicles that some wonder why we have both sets of Israel's history in our Bibles at all.

Why Are There So Many Bible Translations?

Why Are There So Many Bible Translations?
If scholars faithfully use reliable manuscripts when translating Scripture, why do we have different versions of the Bible?Perhaps the most vital thing to understand about different Bible versions: by their very nature translations are NEVER word for word. Translators must interpret to some degree, and how they go about this process falls into two philosophies: FORMAL EQUIVALENCE or DYNAMIC EQUIVALENCE.Listen to learn how this impacts the translation process and check out some Bible translations that are worth your consideration.***Recommended Bible Translations:Those looking for a recommendation of a good Bible versions will find the ESV, the NASB, the Legacy, and the CSB to be excellent choices.English Standard VersionNew American Standard BibleLegacy Standard VersionChristian Standard Bible***▶ Newsletter: https://reasonabletheology.org/subscribe▶ Podcast Episodes & Starter Packs: https://reasonabletheology.org/the-podcast/***▶ 57 Great Books Every Christian Should Own▶ Save on Logos Bible Software▶ 60 Days of Free Audiobooks with EverandGet the newsletter at ReasonableTheology.org/Subscribe.

"Humble Calvinist" Shouldn't Be An Oxymoron
In his book Humble Calvinism, author J.A. Medders writes:"Many of us who love to love the “doctrines of grace” have not grown in showing grace. We have not become more gracious, kind, tender, and compassionate. And that can only mean one thing: we actually don’t know the doctrines of grace. Sure, we know the points and can rehearse the arguments ...But an arrogant and argumentative Calvinist is just a Pharisee with a fresh coat of paint."But it doesn't have to be this way. The term "humble Calvinism" should not be an oxymoron.On this replay episode, we discuss why a right understanding of Calvinism should cause us to be gracious, loving, and humble towards others.On This Episode We’ll Discuss:What Calvinism is and why a "humble Calvinist" seems like an oxymoron to manyWhy "cage-stage" Calvinism is such a prevalent issueSome keys to help us graciously hold to the Doctrines of GraceHow we can be zealous for the truth and be humble and gracious towards othersPick up a copy of Humble Calvinism: https://amzn.to/3TpAUwxFor more resources and information, see the show notes at ReasonableTheology.org/Episode23If you enjoy the sermons and written works of CH Spurgeon, check out the all-new CHSpurgeon.com Here you'll find sermon audio as well as resources by and about the Prince of Preachers.

3 Crucial Reminders for Christians in a Pagan Culture | Ep. 87

3 Crucial Reminders for Christians in a Pagan Culture | Ep. 87
In the book of Titus, Paul is instructing Titus to remind these Christians of how they are to live lives pleasing to God in a pagan land of Crete. Crete was known across the ancient world for its immorality; Paul quotes one of their own poets who claimed “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.”How were Christians to live in such a culture? More than a question of personal obedience and sanctification, this is a question of the Great Commission. How does their conduct impact how the Cretans see Christ?The apostle Paul's instructions for first-century Christians in Crete remain relevant for us today. What should our response be as spiritual pilgrims living in an increasingly unholy land?This is a very important question, as far too many believers fall into the ditches of either capitulating to the culture or adopting a posture of outright hostility towards it. Both errors are a hindrance to our proclamation of the Gospel.Some Christians respond with anger, others with despair, and still others become indifferent to the cultural rot all around us. In helping us rightly engage the world around us, Titus 3:1-7 offers three crucial reminders: a reminder of how we are to live, a reminder of who we once were, and a reminder of what Christ has done for us.In this sermon we will consider how we can navigate the increasingly ungodly culture around us with compassion, conviction, and confidence.If you enjoy the sermons and written works of CH Spurgeon, check out the all-new CHSpurgeon.com Here you'll find sermon audio as well as resources by and about the Prince of Preachers.

Was Christ a Copycat? Refuting Claims of Pagan Plagiarism

Was Christ a Copycat? Refuting Claims of Pagan Plagiarism
Is it true that the story of Jesus is just a retelling of pagan myths that also featured gods who were born of a virgin, died, and rose again?It is often alleged that a number of ancient gods have biographies shockingly similar to that of Jesus of Nazareth. Names that are commonly included in this group of doppelganger deities include Mithras, Dionysus, and Osiris, among others.This allegation implies that if gods we consider false claim the same things that Christianity claims, Christianity must also be false. But is the allegation true?There are two important questions that a believer should ask when tackling the “Jesus myth” allegations:1) Are these alleged parallels to pagan gods historically accurate?2) If they were, what difference would it make?Listen as we review three alleged parallels to the life of Christ and consider whether or not it would really matter if there were pagan gods with stories similar to the life of Christ.Get the newsletter at ReasonableTheology.org/Subscribe.

Studying the Beatitudes (with a Little Help from the Greek)
The Sermon on the Mount is perhaps the most famous of all of Jesus’ teachings, and the beatitudes in particular have come to be some of the best-known and best-loved verses in the whole of the New Testament.Christians have much to gain from a deep study of these passages, and our guest today is going to give us some insight into how our study of these verses (and all the New Testament) can benefit from a knowledge of Greek.Ryan Martin is the man behind Kairos Classroom, which provides online, live instruction in biblical Greek and Hebrew. On this episode we examine the language of the beatitudes and gain greater insight into Jesus’ teaching by understanding more about His words in the original Greek. We’ll talk about what it means to be “blessed” – how we are to rightly understand biblical meekness, and how we can avoid common mistakes when using language tools like dictionaries when studying Scripture.At the end, we’ll discuss how you can better equip yourself to dive deeper into your study of Scripture. This episode will inspire you to see the Scriptures through a new lens and perhaps even embark on the rewarding journey of learning Greek or Hebrew yourself.See how you can begin your study of Greek with Kairos Classroom and get 10% off your first course with promo code THEOLOGY: ReasonableTheology.org/GreekSubscribe to our newsletter at ReasonableTheology.org/Subscribe for the latest updates and resources, including articles, theological definitions, artistic depictions, musical selections, and book recommendations to build your library.

The Lasting Impact of Spurgeon's Sermons | Ep. 84
Charles Haddon Spurgeon was a Baptist preacher in London who lived from 1834 to 1892. By the end of end of the 19th century, more than 100 million copies of Spurgeon’s sermons had been sold in 23 languages.  This figure has long since been surpassed many times over, and Spurgeon's sermons continue to minister to people today. The 6-volume collection of Spurgeon’s sermons – known as the New Park Street Pulpit and the 57-volume Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit comprise one of the greatest collections of sermons in history.Although these volumes continue to be used and referenced by many, only portions have been re typeset in the more than 100 years since the collection was completed. That means that the majority of copies available from this set are very difficult to read and contain the occasional typo or other error.On this episode of the podcast, I welcome back Jared Payne of A Pilgrim’s Coffer, who has undertaken a brand new, fully re-typeset edition of the New Park Street Pulpit.We’ll talk about the impact of CH Spurgeon, how Jared became interested in Spurgeon, the lasting value of these printed sermons, and the ambitious project of re-typesetting these sermons.If you are fan of Charles Spurgeon and have benefited from his written works, you’re going to enjoy our conversation as well as the upcoming new edition of the New Park Street Pulpit.If you enjoy the sermons and written works of CH Spurgeon, check out the all-new CHSpurgeon.com Here you'll find sermon audio as well as resources by and about the Prince of Preachers.
