Dr. Brown and Keith Collins, Director of FIRE School of Ministry, discuss the dangerous deviations in today’s preaching, calling the listeners back to foundational, sacrificial, gospel truth. There will also be some special announcements regarding FIRE School of Ministry.

 

Hour 1:

 

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: This is our moment of opportunity and service, what we live for, and when we can make a difference. Tomorrow may never come, yesterday is gone, seize the day, and make it count for King Jesus!


Hour 2:

 

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: Jesus gave a final great commission to His disciples. It was not a last suggestion or merely a concept or idea, but a commission to go and make disciples. This is what our lives boil down to, to make it very simple: be a disciple and go and make disciples!

The Gospel of Martyrdom vs. the Gospel of Success VOR Article by Dr. Brown

Stephen stood before the Sanhedrin. The appointed Jewish leadership confronted this anointed Jewish believer. They glared; he glowed. They were enraged; he was enraptured. Their faces were contorted with anger; his was like the countenance of an angel. “Men and brothers,” he said […]

  1. Hello Dr. Brown,

    Thank you for the show and your labors.

    If I could ask for a request, could you do a show explaining your understanding of the Gospel? This show was very interesting, especially the stories about the missionaries, however, it seemed to focus on sanctification. I would be curious of your thoughts on the relationship of the Gospel to sanctification.

    Thank you again.

  2. Thanks, Douglas. You might also search for shows devoted to the question, “What is the gospel?” on the site here. As for your last sentence, please expand your question for me so I’ll know exactly what you’re asking. Blessings!

  3. Hello Dr. Brown,

    Thank you for the response.

    As a pastor I have been recently pondering a great deal about the relationship between sanctification and the Gospel (the proclamation of Christ’s perfect righteousness imputed to the faithful).

    It seems like much of modern pop Evangelicalism views the Gospel as something only for the lost and not for the church. Once one is “saved” one moves beyond the Gospel. I am beginning to see the Scriptures more and more make the Gospel not only the foundation of our justification, but also our sanctification. The Apostles in their epistles almost always start with the Gospel, as seen by such texts as Rom 1:15; 5:1ff; 1Cor 1:2-9,30; Eph 1:3ff; 1Pet 1:3-5, etc.

    I greatly appreciate your zeal for the Lord, desire for holiness and your teaching (I heard you speak at Yale in the early 1990’s & recently bought your book on homosexuality for a sermon I am preparing). Thus I am curious about your thoughts on the matter, if you have the time.

    Thank you again,
    In Christ,
    Doug
