Science; Morality and God
A Sermon on Romans 7:22-25
For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin. (ESV)
In all of man’s technological achievement in the past century, why is man still dealing with the same problems that have been throughout history? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones explains that fraud, theft, murder, and infedility all have wreaked havoc within every family, regardless of their technological or financial ability. In this sermon from Romans 7:22-25, we will see why man can conquer the pull of gravity and venture into space, yet is unable to free himself from the clutches of his own fallen morality. Dr. Lloyd-Jones points to our true problem, which is more powerful than any force of nature: sin. Our sin affects every faculty of our being, separating us from God and leaving us living eternally pointless lives. Can you echo Paul’s frustration when he does what he does not want to do, and does not do what he wishes to do? Mankind is indeed a slave to his sin regardless of scientific discovery, but in this sermon Dr. Lloyd-Jones will point us to the only One who is more powerful than our sin.
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.
