Ten Indictments (A Historical Message) by Paul Washer

From this thread on the Puritanboard:

Ten Indictments Against the Modern Church in America (Paul Washer)

1. A practical denial of the sufficiency of Scripture
2. An ignorance of God
3. A failure to address man's malady
4. An ignorance of the gospel of Jesus Christ
5. An ignorance of the doctrine of regeneration
6. An unbiblical gospel invitation
7. Ignorance regarding the nature of the Church
8. A lack of loving and compassionate Church discipline
9. Psychology and sociology have replaced the Scriptures with regard to the family
10. The Emergent Church , Church growth, and cultural sensitivity

"All this Emergent Church stuff, much of the Church Growth stuff, all of the cultural sensitivity, throwing out the window biblical sensitivity, it is just a bunch of little boys wanting to play church without the power of God on their life. And I will stand on that statement." Paul Washer

  1. I look forward to viewing this. (I've heard about it from others.)

    I would add to the list:
    The failure to distinguish between justification and sanctification and both the understanding and progress in what santification demands.
