A Recommendation

My friends, I wanted to recommend a preacher to you in this blog post. I have met some fine ones over time. I have personally heard Dr. John Piper and R.C. Sproul. Though I have never heard him in person, I have listened to the messages of Dr. John MacArthur for years. I have heard Dr. Al Mohler, the President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, several times. I have been exposed to some phenomenal preaching. I have been able to hear some preaching from some Not-so-well-known preachers. One such is Dr. Tony Mattia of Kansas. All these men and more are very good preachers. A Christian would be very edified if they could find their messages and listen to them.

But there is a preacher who has recently (within the last year or two) come on the scene. He is not flashy. He doesn't yell much. But he tells the truth in a way that grips you and let's you know that he knows what he is talking about. This preacher's name is Paul Washer. He is a former IMB missionary for the Southern Baptist Convention. Now, he preaches wherever he is invited. He has a message that will challenge your heart and make you think about hard things.

There is a book I found some years ago by the Puritan preacher Matthew Mead called "The Almost Christian Discovered." It was a sobering book. Well, Paul Washer's messages are sobering messages. He oftentimes is not invited back to speak again. He messages are disturbing in our man centered world and our man centered churches.

I invite you to go to sermonaudio.com and listen to this preacher. Pick any of his messages. You will not fail to be edified by any one of them. But beware, he will expose your hypocrisy, your mediocrity, your false Christianity, your veneer of moral religion. He will teach you what true faith in Christ involves.

Truth telling is almost a lost art in our modern churches. I invite you hear a plain talking, truth telling preacher. His message is one we all need to think about seriously. Thanks.

Paul Washer is an incredible preacher. I heard him preach last year at the FBC of Muscle Shoals yearly confernce and I was very much moved by how God is using Paul. As a PCA Presbyterian, I am very familiar with the theology and encouraged to see Paul pronouncing God's words with such clarity and emotion. God certainly is blessing Paul and those who are fortunate enough to hear him preach. I am praying for Paul and his battle in his own denomination.

anonymous, thank you for your recommendation. When we get to the throne denominations will be no more, but we will be there as God's Chosen, Redeemed Children.
