How Many Times Can a Man Turn His Head and Pretend He Just Doesn't See?

With this intriguing question, taken from a popular ballad of the 1960s, Greg Bahnsen began two messages which profoundly affected all who heard them. Hearts were melted, tears flowed, and sins were confessed. It was the fervent desire of all present that the Lord Jesus Christ would powerfully use these sermons to prune away the dead branches of his church, heal her of schism, comfort her to his Word, and make her a light to the nations.

Dr. Bahnsen taught us that a school of thought, no less than an individual, is known by its fruits (Luke 6:44). Worldviews which have roots deeply planted in the living vine, Jesus Christ, have always produced much fruit unto the honor and glory of God. They have done so because they have remained consistent to his revealed will in the Bible. Those Systems that have departed from the Word of God become dead wood, fruitless branches, and have been cut off by Almighty God, the Sovereign Vinedresser.
