sermonette: Liberality and Legalism
Examples of Self-Worship
David C. Grabbe
Given 22-Nov-03; Sermon #639s; 14 minutes
David Grabbe makes some comparisons between the Pharisees and the Laodiceans, maintaining that they both were zealous for works, but because they both indulged in self- worship instead of dependency upon God, their works did absolutely no good. Trusting exclusively in themselves and their own self-serving works, both Pharisees and Laodiceans found no need for a savior, let alone a need to be corrected. The sermonette concludes with an analysis of the glue which bonds the Babylonian (or Satan's) kingdom together, characterized by " the enemy of my enemy (namely God almighty) is my friend" philosophy.
