1994 Sermons

A Church without Walls01/09/94

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Since about the 4th century, the Christian church has adopted the pagan idea that the church is to be made up of a religious professional and his audience. The professional (called father, reverend, etc.) does the religious stuff whilst the congregation sits back and enjoys the show.

Tell me the Truth (1994)01/16/94

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Often today, Christians attempt to witness to non-believers out of a sense of obligation and guilt. If the power of the Holy Spirit is not behind that witnessing, however, those attempts will be largely futile. As much of the church today is unhealthy, so also the church's attempts at witnessing are often unhealthy.

Devoted to Prayer01/30/94

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Revivals don't happen by accident. There is a spiritual law of cause and effect, just as there is a physical law of cause and effect. Prayer causes God's will to be done in the world. The cause is prayer, the effect is the Holy Spirit fighting for us against the kingdom of darkness.

Airing Out the Tomb03/06/94

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • When Lazarus was raised from the dead (John 11:1-46), he had new life, but the stench of death was also still with him. So it is with us. We have new life in Christ, but we may carry with us things from the time when we were dead in sin.
