Law and Gospel preaching

Would you like an example–or, better yet, a model–of a sermon that powerfully applies the Law and then powerfully applies the Gospel? Here is what Pastor Douthwaite preached yesterday, on the text of Romans 6:12-23.

Latvian Lutherans go back to male-only pastors
"Conscientious objection against the state"
Which denominations oppose abortion and which ones don't
The nun who faced down Billy the Kid
About Gene Veith

    Wonderful sermon:

    And so for the Christian, the opposite of sinning is to repent. For that is to live under grace.

    thanks for sharing,

    I love reading or hearing the pure preaching of God’s Word. My response is amen. While the Law always condemns me, God confers His Sons righteousness on me.

    in the holy church there is no such thing as plagerism when it is about Jesus and his grace. plagerize freely and with a pure conscience!

    this sermon handled an area that is problematic even for most Lutherans with great lucidity. thanks for this Dr Vieth! I needed to hear this today. I have not been feeling alot like a “good person”. the opposite of sin is faith!
