1 Samuel 12 For His Great Name’s Sake (part 1) (podcast)

In this study:

  • An overview of 1 Samuel chapters 9, 10, and 11.
  • An introduction to the man Saul
  • Early prophecies and types that indicate God intended for Israel to have kings–but in His time, not theirs
  • Israel’s earlier flirtation with kingship under Gideon and Abimelech
  • How “doing what is right in our own eyes” leads to great darkness
  • How God redeems all kinds of sin and rebellion to bring glory to Himself
  • Why God did not install Moses and Joshua as kings of Israel
  • Why God does things for His great Name’s sake
  • How the name of God has become virtually irrelevant in much of our culture
  • How our culture has embraced personal  sovereignty as the highest moral good
  • How Christians discussing contemporary moral issues is like responding to being poked in the eye
  • How a paper in the Journal of the American Medical Association Internal Medicine could lead to Christians being blamed for the health problems of gays, lesbians, and bisexuals.
