Franklin, Benjamin – The Gospel Preacher (Volume 1) [Sermons]

The Gospel Preacher (volume 1) is a collection of twenty full-text sermons by Benjamin Franklin, published in 1869. These sermons average 20 pages each. This is not the Benjamin Franklin associated with the founding of the United States, but his great-great-great nephew who was named after him. This man, in most writings, is referred to as “Elder Benjamin Franklin.” Many preachers in the 1800s were called “elder,” just like today, many preachers are called “pastor.”

A quote from one of the sermons:

What did God give the Scriptures for? “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable.” Profitable for what? If one were to notice the popular custom of the preachers, he might infer that the Scriptures were given that they might have a convenient book from which to get texts, for this is one use made of them. But Paul does not say the Scriptures are profitable for that use. If one were to look again, he might suppose that the Lord designed the Scripture as proof of the doctrines and commandments of men, for a man in one church is busily engaged in quoting Scripture to prove Universalism, in another Unitarianism, in another Trinitarianism, in another Calvinism, in another Arminianism. If this was the purpose of God in giving us the Scriptures, it is certain that the apostles and first Christians never so understood it. They never used them any such purpose. What, then, does Paul say they are profitable for? They are profitable for doctrine or for teaching. Is it not astonishing that men should be hesitating about what doctrine to adopt, and debating about what the true doctrine is, when the apostle so clearly states, that “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine or teaching.” He does not say it is profitable to prove our doctrine by, but it is the doctrine itself.

I am from South Africa (Groblersdal), and I would like to extend my astronomical gratitude to "the word" team for their remarkable job on this software let alone making it free for all to access. This is a true act of serving God. I have used this software for almost 4 years and I'm thoroughly impressed by the effort you have put in it. May God continue to bless you in all your future developments.
...Your Fellow Servant of Christ Jesus
Be blessed in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ
Greetings from Germany
