Scripture

Romans 7:22-25 ESV NASB KJV
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)

Description

In all of humanity’s technological achievement in the past century, why is it still dealing with the same problems that have been throughout history? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones explains that fraud, theft, murder, and infidelity all have wreaked havoc within every family, regardless of their technological or financial ability. In this sermon on Romans 7:22–25 titled “Science, Morality, and God,” he explains why people can conquer the pull of gravity and venture into space, yet are unable to free themselves from the clutches of their own fallen morality. Dr. Lloyd-Jones points to the true problem, which is more powerful than any force of nature: sin. Sin affects every faculty of one’s being, separating them from God and leaving them living eternally pointless lives. Humankind is indeed a slave to sin regardless of scientific discovery, but in this sermon, Dr. Lloyd-Jones will point to the only One who is more powerful than sin.

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.
