A Defense of the Crusades. Many false statements are being made about the Crusaders and the Crusades these days. No, Christian men didn’t just wake up in Europe one day and decide willy-nilly – “Let’s go attack the Muslims!” This sermon goes into actual history as to why the Crusades were originally called. History differs greatly from the politically-correct, one-sided, nonsense being fed to Westerners these days by so-called academic experts.

Katherine von Bora: A Labor Day Sermon. This Labor Day weekend sermon does not honor unions or the “careers” of women, rather it honors the most hard-working women of all, namely, mothers/housewives. The sermon begins with a short description of God’s intent for us to work; followed by some observations of G.K. Chesterton; and ends with a lengthy review of the life of Katherina von Bora, who became the wife of Martin Luther.

The Hounded and The Martyred Part 2. This is part two of a sermon that demonstrates the providential hand of God in the history of men by showing how He preserves His Word and furthers His kingdom in the earth. In this second part, we show the connection between Luther and Hus (and by extension, Wycliffe). Wycliffe and Luther were hounded by the religious and civil authorities, and Hus was martyred by the religious and civil authorities.

Nicholas von Amsdorf – Champion of Magdeburg. Nicholas von Amsdorf lived from 1483 to 1565. He and Luther and Melancthon were best of friends. He was with Luther when Frederick the Wise feigned Luther’s abduction in order to protect him. Von Amsdorf is the first signer of the Magdeburg Confession. His impact upon the Reformation was massive. This sermon examines some of the highlights of his history and acquaints the listener with his life.
