The Faith by Hearing Best MP3’s of first half of 2007

The following 12 messages are ones I consider the most impactful, important messages that were delivered and posted on this blog in the first 6 months of 2007.  They are not in any specific order, other than the order in which added them to this post.  If you are overwhelmed by the amount of material posted on this site, this is a good post to start with.  I’ll try to do this more frequently so that those with less active iPods will be able to hit the highlights in a given timeframe.

John Piper

Resolved Conference 2007

Al Mohler
‘Christ Our Ransom’
Mohler gives us a comprehensive picture of the work of our Savior as God and as our great mediator.  He focuses on the logic of substitution.
2007 Ligonier Conference ‘Cross of Christ’

Al Mohler
‘Blessing or Curse’
Mohler looks at the big picture of God’s redeeming purpose.  He makes this very challenging statement: “We are living in a time when we find ‘attention’ a very, very rare stewardship. And we are particularly weakened and compromised in the evangelical church today because there is not adequate attention–slow, text driven, theologically enriched attention–to how we are to view the great doctrines of the faith. So, instead, what happens is, even in some of the most orthodox of our churches, what happens is you skip across texts of Scripture. And you take glance blows across doctrines, and it’s not so much that they are mistaught, but it’s that they are misapprehended.  Because lacking context, and lacking a systematic understanding, and lacking a comprehensive attentiveness to these things, we rob God of His glory in His church by treating doctrines as disconnected realities, and texts as isolated islands of meaning, rather than pointing to the comprehensive purpose of God laid out in the comprehensive unity of Scripture.”
