Sermon: Institutionalism


The following sermon was preached in two parts, in the AM and PM services.

The practice of Institutionalism has caused a large and unfortunate division among God’s people. Those who practice it violate the authority of scripture.

The lesson discusses the dangers of 4 aspects of the Institutional question, showing the contrast between such practices and the pattern established in scripture. These four aspects are:

  1. The church support of human institutions.
  2. The sponsoring church arrangement.
  3. The concept of unlimited church benevolence.
  4. The practice of the Social Gospel.
