Sermon Recommendation: Dr. James White “Fear and Love the Lord”

Deuteronomy and Leviticus make a whole lot more sense when you put them in context. As Dr. James White points out in this sermon about fearing and loving the Lord, modern Christians miss so much when they aren’t educated about the history and geography of the time.

While he doesn’t go into great detail, he points out that many Old Testament rules about holiness given to the Jewish people were because of the idolatry and worship practices of the pagan nations surrounding them. The laws were apologetic in nature, White concludes.

This is a great example of training Christians to understand difficult passages of Scripture. Listen here.

PS: If anyone can figure out exactly what book he means when he mentions Israel Among the Gods please tell me. I’d really love to read it.

About Julia

Here's what you might like to know about me. My name is Julia and I'm a Christian. I love the Bible and, much less importantly, a good steak. My goal with this site is to share the truth of scripture with believer and non-believer alike, and to specifically encourage believers to study and know the Bible, and warn them of false teachings in and around the church. Romans 1:16-17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, the just shall live by faith."
