Here's another great sermon by Archibald Brown. It's one of those sermons which is timeless, i.e., it is applicable to one's current situation regardless of what year, decade or millennium it happens to be. Why? Because as Solomon by the Spirit wrote ages ago, "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun." (Eccl 1:9) Mr. Brown brings to our minds and souls those things which in his day were under attack, ridiculed and even denied by not just the world but many of the 'established churches' which boasted they were representatives of truth and practical religion. Those things he categorizes as some of the "Essentials/Landmarks" of the faith; biblical Christianity which cannot be moved and which are the foundation of true faith. Hmmm, sound familiar to you? He divides his sermon into two basic parts: those landmarks which are of doctrine, and those landmarks which are of life. He also reveals the attitude of those who are willing and do cast off these landmarks and their end. If you are hoping for an exhaustive list of "fundamentals of the faith", then you will not be satisfied. For, given the limited time which sermons typically occupy, with the exception of many of the Puritans who apparently had no such restraints,
, Mr. Brown provides a limited number which cannot and must not be ignored.
