Dr. W. A. Criswell

Genesis 16:10

9-14-80     7:30 p.m.

It is a gladness, infinitely so, for us to welcome all of you who are listening on KCBI, the Sonshine radio station of our Bible Institute, and over KRLD, that carries the Cowboys game.  But, we are a lot better than they, I can tell you that.  All of you who listen on KRLD, you listen to a triumph every time you tune in on us.  We never are defeated, never, ever; not until the kingdom comes and we look at Jesus face to face.

These days the pastor, and you are listening to him now, of the First Baptist Church in Dallas—the pastor is preaching two tremendous series of sermons.  The morning ones are on the great doctrines of the Bible, and it will continue over three years.  And the first two messages were introductory, delivered last Sunday morning, and this Sunday morning.  And then, next Sunday morning, we begin the first section of the fifteen sections on “The Great Doctrines of the Faith.”

The first section concerns the Bible, Bibliology; and the title of the sermon this coming Lord’s Day morning is “Books and the Book.”  “The Book: There is just one Book,” cried the dying sage, “read me the old, old story.”  And the winged words that can never fade wafted his soul to glory.  There is just one Book.   That is the sermon next Sunday morning.

And the next Sunday night, the series on Sunday night regards “The Problems of Human Life—the world in which we live, have to live, you cannot escape it.  You cannot say, “Stop the world.  I want to get off.”   We are in it, and we are involved in everything that happens.  And the sermons on Sunday night are concerning some of those dramatic problems that are forced upon us.
