Sermon—“Entangled With The Yoke Of Bondage”

——————————-
Having served for three years as an Evangelist in the Philippines, Jared Smith has prepared two studies based on Galatians 5:1, in response to the insidious doctrine of progressive sanctification, which pervades every church and Christian denomination with which he has come into contact throughout the course of his evangelistic labors. The Apostle Paul identifies the doctrine of progressive sanctification as “another gospel”, and Jared attempts in this study to explain why.

Sermon—“Is Hyper-Calvinism A False Gospel?”

——————————-
The regular series of studies on “Signposts” will continue next Sunday, 24 July 2022. Apology is given for the interruption and delay in this series of teachings. The encroaching work of an Evangelist can from time to time make it difficult for Jared Smith to complete his online teachings in a timely manner.

An Overview Of The Teaching Video:

Based on the false dichotomy between the sovereignty of God and the responsibility of man, Low and Moderate Calvinists misrepresent High (Hyper) Calvinism as that form of doctrine which is unorthodox, killing a love for souls, eliminating the need for evangelism and undermining the purpose of prayer. Such are the charges set forth by Roy Hargrave as the reasons he abhors the Hyper-Calvinists. However, are these assertions true? Is Hyper-Calvinism unorthodox? Does Hyper-Calvinism kill a love for souls? Does Hyper-Calvinism eliminate the need for evangelism? Does Hyper-Calvinism undermine the purpose of prayer? In this study, Jared Smith responds to these charges, setting forth an argument that not only are Hyper-Calvinists orthodox, but they alone nurture an authentic love for souls, fulfill the great work of evangelism and approach the throne of grace zealously for the right purpose(s).

• A biographical sketch is given of Roy Hargrave, together with a short clip from his sermon where he speaks about Hyper-Calvinism
