Paul Washer – Bible teacher and preacher
Let’s open up our Bibles to Romans Chapter One. I appreciate many of the things that have been said.
The fact of the matter is, if you hear from a speaker tonight, you wasted your time, especially from this one. There are no great men of God. It’s a preposterous language spoken by those who need to be a little bit more refined in their theology. There are only weak and pitiful and faithless men of a great and merciful God.
Anyone who has been used by God in any degree is almost ashamed of the fact that he or she has been used. It almost seems as though it’s not right.
When I look at my own life, and I look at many of the shortcomings that are there, I can only be amazed at the grace of a very very gracious and compassionate God.
You see, to preach to an auditorium like this or to one much larger or to stand out in the street and to share the gospel while people are throwing things, that does not take a great deal of godliness or Christ-likeness or purity of heart.
