Item description for Glorious Christianity (Lloyd-Jones, David Martyn. Studies in the Book of Acts, V. 4.) by Martyn Lloyd-Jones...
Overview In this fourth volume of the Studies in the Book of Acts series, readers will see that nonbelievers are blinded because of their false idea of what religion is. They seem to be satisfied with who they are, convinced that they are good enough. Lloyd-Jones sees their rejection of the gospel mirrored in the dismissal of Stephen's testimony concerning Jesus as Savior in the Book of Acts. People repeatedly deny the gospel because sin paralyzes their minds, hearts, and spirits. Lloyd-Jones is an accomplished expositor who accurately identifies the human condition and offers wisdom for Christians who want to understand why many who hear the truth dismiss it.
In the fourth volume of Studies in the Book of Acts, Martyn Lloyd-Jones diagnoses the objections that an unbelieving world has to Christianity. He examines Stephen's speech to the Sanhedrin in Acts 7 to uncover the reason why the Jewish leaders during the early days of the church were so outraged by what the apostles said and were so quick to persecute and silence them. It is the same reason why nonbelievers today reject the truth: sin. Sin infects people's minds, hearts, and spirits, blinding them to the truth of Christianity.
Lloyd-Jones's message is just as relevant today as it was when he preached it in the 1960s, and as it was when Stephen confronted the Sanhedrin almost 2,000 years ago. An attitude of bitterness, contempt, and disdain toward the Gospel has always blinded people from the truth and continues to do so today. Christians must understand this if we are to speak to the barrier of sin that prevents nonbelievers from seeing the Kingdom of God.
