Now for something fun!  I’m reviewing something I haven’t done before on this blog: a Christian polo shirt!

Presupp Shark shirt

If you can tell from yesterday’s post and different posts on my blog I love Presuppositional Apologetics.  I love it enough that I got something related to Presuppositional Apologetics besides books.  I got a polo shirt!  

The above is a picture of the shirt I ordered that is on this online Christian shirt shop called “The Powerful Christian.”  You can go to the store directory by clicking here.  (Its not me lol).  The shop have merchandise related to Presuppositional Apologetics and also Reformed theology.

Psalm 139 Spurgeon

Charles Spurgeon. Psalm 139.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, June 22nd 2017. 20 pp.

3 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon

Do you want to learn about God’s attributes from the well treasured Psalm 139 and wonder what the famous preacher Charles Spurgeon has to say about this famous chapter?  This booklet is an excerpt from Spurgeon’s Treasury of David, Spurgeon’s classic commentary on the Psalms.  I picked out this booklet to go through it with our church youth (pre-teens and teens) as I want them to think about God’s attribute and also because I have benefited from other booklets by Charles Spurgeon that was published by

Family Duty by John Bunyan

John Bunyan. Family Duty.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, July 12th 2016. 35 pp.

4 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Want a booklet on a biblical view of family?  Specifically would you want to have something to read concerning the roles of a husband, wife, father, mother, and children?  This is one that I would recommend.  I read this in one sitting and pulled nearly an all-night reading since it was spiritually edifying.  This booklet is by the famous preacher and Christian author John Bunyan.  It is amazing to think that he died in 1688 but his work is relevant for the 21st Century; that is a testimony of how when writers focus on being biblical it always is timely.

Spiritual Peace

Charles H. Spurgeon. Spiritual Peace.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, May 13th 2016. 23 pp.

4 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

This was another booklet by Charles Spurgeon that I picked out to go through with our church youth (pre-teens and teens) concerning the topic of having peace that I thought was a relevant topic as our kids and many like them are going through a time of not being physically attending school, isolated at home and at times going though things in 2020-2021 with the Covid situation.  This booklet was published by Chapel Library.  Spurgeon is among my favorite past preachers to read and while I have appreciated other booklets and sermons from him, this specific work wasn’t bad but it didn’t stand out as much as some of the other works I enjoyed from Spurgeon.  Still Spurgeon still presents biblical truths and it is edifying for believers and evangelistic towards non-Christians.

5 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

I was looking for something that is a short read for our church youth (pre-teens and teens) that preaches the Gospel that is short and readable in one sitting that also introduce them to the heritage of sound Bible teachers from Church history and I thought this booklet published by Chapel Library might fit the bill.  I wasn’t disappointed with The Gospel in a Single Verse.  Spurgeon is among my favorite past preachers to read.

John Charles Ryle. Thoughts for Young Men.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, August 17, 2015. 44 pp.

5 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

What is a book a young person can read to grow spiritually and maturity?  This is a classic by John Charles Ryle that is a timeless classic.  I think given our time this is also edifying for people in their 20s to also read.  John Charles Ryle who is best known by his pen name J.C. Ryle wrote this filled with godly and biblical exhortations that isn’t just applicable to his time period.  In fact in reading this the second time and also in conjunction with the youths in our church (pre-teens and teens) I felt it is more relevant and edifying than when I first read it ten years ago in my 20s.

Erroll Hulse. Postmodernism.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, April 19, 2017. 27 pp.

4 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

What the general attack against Christianity like in today’s culture and society?  There is quite the postmodern feel with much of the rejection and animosity to Christianity today.  This short booklet describe this threat and also calls believers to be faithful to the truth of the Biblical faith.  This is written by Erroll Hulse who is a Reformed Baptist pastor in England who have authored many books and articles including Reformation Today magazine although this is the first time I have heard of him and read any of his writing.

I am writing this book primarily as an encouragement to those in my church who are on Winter Break with School, so they can take advantage of their winter break to read things about God and Christ from the famous English Preacher Charles Spurgeon!

 

Charles H. Spurgeon. The First Fruit of the Spirit.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, August 25th 2017. 20 pp.

5 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

Want to read a short but deep and biblical work on God’s perspective of the Christian virtue of love?  I highly recommend this booklet that is written by Charles Spurgeon, one of my favorite preacher from the past that I like to read.  Spurgeon died in 1892 and I’m amazed at how well over hundred years later Spurgeon’s writings which are adapted from his sermons, still speaks to us in a manner that is still relevant and fresh.  In this particular work Spurgeon looks at Galatians 5:22 which tells us the fruit of the Spirit includes love.  Yet what is and is not love?  Spurgeon masterfully uses the passages in the surrounding context to teach us what love is and is not.

Arthur Pink. The Prodigal son. Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, April 27th, 2020. 31 pp.

4 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

Do you know of the Parable of the Prodigal Son in the Bible?  It is one of my favorite parable told by Jesus; in fact it is the most detailed parable of Jesus that is recorded in the four Gospels.  This parable illustrates the amazing love of God for sinner who repent and turn to God and Christ.  I was blessed reading this booklet by Arthur Pink and his exposition of this famous story.

Charles H. Spurgeon. Little Sins.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, June 4, 2017. 20 pp.

5 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

Is there the danger of some sins in your life that are flying under the radar undetected by you since you don’t think the sin is that serious?  This booklet might be for you for your own sanctification and edifying read.  It is by Charles Spurgeon, one of my favorite dead preacher from the past that I like to read and in this particular title his words of exhortation and encouragement is still powerfully felt in my own life.  This was originally a sermon on Genesis 19:20 that Spurgeon preached on April 17th, 1859.  Though it is over 161 years after the sermon was delivered when I read this I find what he has to say is still applicable for Christians today!

Is Security of the Believer a License to Sin? 

I think anybody who reads here knows that I believe in the Eternal Security of the believer, Once saved always saved, or Perseverance of the Saints. I believe God’s Word clearly teaches that the salvation of a truly saved person will never be revoked, nor can it be taken from us. 

This is problematic for some, as many consider this doctrine to be nothing more than the granting of a license to run out and sin all they want. Sadly, many who oppose the Doctrine of Eternal Security are made to feel this way by the conduct and lifestyles of those professing to believe. Sadly, some do actually believe that salvation is no more than getting their ticket to heaven punched and that they can, in fact, do as they wish with no repercussions.

I posted a little ditty on our Facebook page and Twitter but I thought I post this on the blog as well.  (If you haven’t followed us on social media feel free to like and follow us).

Biblically faithful preaching is harder to find today in more ways than one.  Perhaps the most common problem is that some no longer like to preach on sin.  If that is true I imagine it is more true that most people do not like Biblical preaching because it talks about sin.

But Why Must Preachers talk about Sin?

Here’s why:

struggles-of-conscience-spurgeon

About two weeks ago I posted my Review and Free Booklet: Struggles of Conscience by Charles Spurgeon.  I mentioned in that review that this turned out to have been my favorite work from Spurgeon thus far for this year (I’ve been having a craving for things by Spurgeon this year).

It turns out this book, which was originally a sermon by Spurgeon, is also available as an audio on Youtube!  This is for those who are busy although I always prefer actual reading of a book more than listening to audiobooks if one can.

So here it is below:
