A Hope for All
A Sermon on Acts 7:30
“Now when forty years had passed, an angel appeared to him in the wilderness of Mount Sinai, in a flame of fire in a bush. (ESV)
Religion is only for the weak! "Belief in God is irrational and sub scientific." These claims and many more flow from modern science, philosophy, and even false theologies that repudiated the God of traditional Christianity and the Bible. In the words of the modern man, “God is dead.” Listen as Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones uses Acts 7:30 to explain how this belief system is born out of sinful man’s rebellion against God and his Law. It is not a sign of an enlightened mind, but of a mind enslaved to sin and depravity. This slavery to sin accounts for the opposition to God and the rejection of His gospel. This is seen in how men address evil and depravity. The world tries to solve its problems through legislation, education, and social programs. But these efforts can never solve the real issue of sin. God uses the Law to expose our sin, but it is his Son who, Dr. Lloyd-Jones explains, gave his life for our sins, so that the world could be redeemed. This is the power of the Gospel. It is not social reform, but cosmic renewal in the power of his Son, Jesus Christ.
