Sermon Gold will be posting an impactful and sobering look at the issues of pain and suffering given by pastor, teacher, and author, Ben Patterson. This five sermon mini-series considers the Christian perspective of this reality in our lives as viewed through the eyes of God, His servant, Job, and Job’s friends.
This sermon was personally instrumental in giving me a wise, sober, and hopeful kingdom view during very painful time of trial, which I well remember all these years later!
I would like to give my appreciation and thanks to Ben for granting me permission to use this great teaching tool on Sermon Gold albeit these many years after it were given. God’s truths are just as relevant today as they were in the 1980’s when they were given!
It is my desire that this series will bring hope and healing and a much broader view into the mysteries of God’s sovereign kingdom goodness in all things.
Thank you Ben… for mining out God’s gold in this series!
“With the same wit and humor characteristic of his earlier work, but with a seriousness of tone that belies the sensitive nature of the subject, Henderson journeys into the cultural whitewater to lift up the much-avoided biblical theme of warfare with Satan and the dominion of darkness. . . . Henderson’s purpose is not to condemn the church, but save it.”
—Erik Vincent, Teacher of High School Advanced Studies
“Henderson’s prophetic voice warns Christ’s followers that although the ultimate war has been won, the battle with relentless darkness continues. To be naïve, he argues, is to be vulnerable. . . . This provocative book challenges our paradigms, warns of the dangers of the ‘therapeutic deism’ that so pervades the church today, and calls readers back to their original mandate to make disciples as a part of a dynamic community.”
—Sherri Hutter, Director of Strategic Initiatives and Integration, The Coca-Cola Company
