The Bible and Death
A Sermon on 2 Corinthians 5:1Read more
Why can the Christian face any and all trials that may come in this life? Christianity is not a vague spirit and religion – it must be taught! Learn of the reason for both preaching and listening to the Gospel of Christ. The Bible alone causes us to truly face the question of death. Nothing is as absolutely certain as death is. What is going to be your position when you leave this world? Every man that lives is born to die. “Here is the one question and the one answer which can never be corrected.” Christianity is not speculation, it is a revelation from God. Listen and face the facts of life. Paul is simply an ambassador for Christ; this is not man’s idea. We are merely representatives of God. Other philosophies and religions have no answer. The incarnation, death, and resurrection of Christ are absolutely essential. The Christian knows when he dies in this body, he will be alive unto God. Do you know that you will be with God when this life is no more? It is only when a man knows how to die that he then knows how to live. Listen to this sermon by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones on 2 Corinthians 5:1 to gain this certainty through Christ!

About Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was a Welsh evangelical minister who preached and taught in the Reformed tradition. His principal ministry was at Westminster Chapel, in central London, from 1939-1968, where he delivered multi-year expositions on books of the bible such as Romans, Ephesians and the Gospel of John. In addition to the MLJ Trust’s collection of 1,600 of these sermons in audio format, most of these great sermon series are available in book form (including a 14 volume collection of the Romans sermons), as are other series such as "Spiritual Depression", "Studies in the Sermon on the Mount" and "Great Biblical Doctrines". He is considered by many evangelical leaders today to be an authority on biblical truth and the sufficiency of Scripture.
