Contradictions – sermon jam by Josh Harris

tsslogo.jpgYet another sermon jam coming out on 10:31’s forthcoming volume. This one by Josh Harris, Senior Pastor of Covenant Life Church (Gaithersburg, MD), is called, Contradictions:

“There are two options for mankind. There are two options for each and every one of us. We can choose human wisdom or we can choose God’s wisdom – the wisdom of the Cross. But they don’t fit together. They can’t be made compatible. They are incompatible. God’s Cross wisdom contradicts human wisdom. The human race is divided into two groups. That’s how Paul sees all of mankind. It’s not about gender, it’s not about age, it’s not about wealth, it’s not about education, for Paul. No. He says the world is divided right down the middle and the dividing factor is what people think of Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Your perspective of that even is the most important thing about you. It’s the defining thing about you. And Paul shows that the wisdom of the world (human wisdom) completely disagrees and contradicts God’s wisdom (the wisdom of the Cross). The Corinthians wanted to mix-and-match human wisdom and Cross wisdom. Paul says, ‘No, it doesn’t work. They contradict.’ No matter what the race or the culture, the message of the Cross is always folly and offense to natural, sinful man. …. This is no small difference of opinion on a minor topic. No. This is absolute contradiction on the central issue.”

See 1 Corinthians 1-3

  1. As a comment on an earlier article – 22nd September 2006, your recommendations on studying the Puritans,I sent you a link to a website from which you can get John Owen’s works as a free download. http://www.lulu.com/content/165183
    If you check out the link and look at their list of titles, you may find that there are other Puritan works available for free download.
    I hope this is helpful to you.
    May God bless you.

  2. Tony,

    If I wanted to purchase the works of Jonathan Edwards, would you recommend the Banner of Truth version, or the Hendrickson? Thanks!

  3. Justin … If you are rich, buy the Yale editions ($80 a volume x 20+ volumes). They are awesome. If you want the 2-volume collections I would certainly recommend the BoT set over H because of binding. The BoT edition is excellent cloth cover, the H edition is just cardboard. This is a set worth paying a bit more for. Blessings! Tony

  4. Nice beat to this sermon jam. Keep posting these I love ’em! I’m a programmer and listening to this is better than the ‘trance’ beats that I listen to.
