Upon request, the Outhouse wants to do its modest part to promote Reformation Christianity by pointing folks to an upcoming conference in Washington D.C. called “Preaching in the Capital.” As the phrase suggests, this conference is all about bringing the powers that be under the direct and immediate rule of Christ, restore America to its Biblical Foundation, from Genesis to Revelation (Psalm 11:3), and re-establish an America that recognizes the sovereignty of God over all of life, where Christians apply a Biblical worldview to every facet of society. This future America will be again a “city on a hill” drawing all nations to the Lord Jesus Christ and teaching them to subdue the earth for the advancement of His Kingdom.
Wait, sorry, that’s another Vision. Take two.
This conference is actually in keeping with the Protestant Reformation even within a context that might tempt others to a lesser vision:
The Reformation taught that preaching is the very Word of God, a mark of the true church, and a key of the kingdom that opens the doors of heaven to those that believe. It is the divinely appointed means by which the Spirit produces faith in our hearts, and the primary source of Christian instruction.
Is this still true today?
Most contemporary sermons are a mix of anecdotes, tips, and inspirational stories—more junk food than bread of life. We often hear more about the person behind the pulpit than about the person and work of Christ. It seems that few in our pulpits—or our pews— understand what’s required by our Lord’s command to preach the Gospel.
Join us for Preaching in the Capital, a lecture series that will critically explore the state of preaching today and ask how the lost art of Reformation preaching can be recovered.
