Marks of the New birth
July 26, 2020
This Sunday we are closing our sermon series “Classic Rock” with one last sermon and one last classic rock song. This week the topic is Scriptural Christianity. This is a sermon that John Wesley originally preached in 1744 at Oxford University. It so upset the leaders of that institution that Wesley, an Oxford graduate and fellow, and one of the most popular preachers in England, was never invited back to speak at Oxford. That is because in this sermon Wesley details the difference between cultural Christianity of 18th C. English Intellectuals with true Scriptural Christianity. It is a powerful message for anyone who claims the name Christian.
