Paul Washer: Biblical Missions

Segment 1 (00:00)  – Todd opens segment telling us that Paul Washer has been declared dead 4 times, which has in turn given him a great fear of the Lord. Todd uses clips from Washer’s sermons to help show that it is extremely important to make our fear of the Lord drive us to present His Word in the exact way that He intended us to.

Segment 2 (08:52)  – Todd opens the segment with an analogy from Paul Washer that shows how the modern church is becoming more like the world in order to attempt to bring more people back into the church. Todd and Paul Washer stress how it is important for churches, whether planting new churches or sending out missions, to properly prepare those who are being sent out; to make sure they are presenting the Word to the bride of Christ as they ought to be.

Segment 3 (18:08)  – Todd alludes to more clips from Paul Washer’s sermon to show that we cannot send out just anybody on missions trips. We need people who know the Word, who have been trained up in it and who can present it correctly without fear to those who need it. Paul makes it a point that we need to have our missions under Ecclesiology.
