Compliance and Punishment (John 18:38b-19:6)

Podcast Art JohnOn Sunday, July 31, 2016, Pastor Joe Troutman preached “Compliance and Punishment” from John 18:38b-19:6.

Jesus’s perfect compliance to his Father’s will resulted in his execution so all traitors who believe might be forgiven.

1. Judge’s Verdict—Even a corrupt heathen like Pontius Pilate could see Jesus was innocent.

2. Leader’s Volition—Jesus—THE Truth—exposed the Jewish leaders’ lies, and they willed his death.

3. Son’s Victory—That which man intends for evil—the Jews’ crucifixion of Christ, as well our own sins—God intends for good, that all who repent and believe may be saved.

Are You A Christian, Or A Zombie? (1 Peter 4:1-6)

Mr. Robert Mossotti, OPC Licentiate

On Sunday, July 24, 2016, Mr. Robert Mossotti preached “Are You A Christian, Or A Zombie?” from 1 Peter 4:1-6.

Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same way of thinking, for whoever has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human passions but for the will of God.

For the time that is past suffices for doing what the Gentiles want to do, living in sensuality, passions, drunkenness, orgies, drinking parties, and lawless idolatry. With respect to this they are surprised when you do not join them in the same flood of debauchery, and they malign you; but they will give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.

For this is why the gospel was preached even to those who are dead, that though judged in the flesh the way people are, they might live in the spirit the way God does.
