    I second this. In fact there are many powerful sermons on this site, including Lloyd-Jones classic sermons on Romans and Ephesians.

    Thanx for the feedback so far.
    I'm going through this really good 4 part series on Hell by Pastor Edward Donnelly he's a London Baptist. It's within Top sermons I've ever heard. And listening to sermons and teachings is kinda of my thing since I'm always on the go. Check them out.

    Thanx, but I am not a fan of Paul Washer at all. I've heard him confuse Justification by Faith Alone many times, whether it was done purposely or by accident with out him realizing it, I would never recommend him. I did listen to this one like 4 years ago. Thank you anyways though.

    In terms of impact, I would agree that this makes the top 10. But for every listener who finds it life-changing, you'll find another who considers it dangerous. Some young believers are challenged in a good way, but others find their confidence in Christ shattered. And Washer himself has since (rightly) backed off from some of what he said in the sermon, so folks should tread carefully with this one.

    Up front, let me say I'm talking a broad view of who qualifies as a Reformed preacher. Maybe that will head off some of the "how could you mention THAT guy?" complaints. So, here are a few sermons that come to mind:

    Eric Alexander's addresses at the 1981 and 1984 Urbana conferences mark both the glory days of Urbana and the high point of Alexander's illustrious preaching ministry. No top 10 list from the past 50 years could be complete without them. Warning: these sermons will make you want to be a missionary.

    D.A. Carson is one of the top Bible scholars of our generation, and I think The Ironies of the Cross will go down as his landmark sermon. He has delivered it many times.

    Mark Dever's Jesus Paid Taxes has become a much-listened-to classic on the believer's relationship to government. His church is one of the best things about Washington, D.C.

    If you ask the broader world of Bible-believing Presbyterians what one sermon from the past 25 years has been most memorable, Tim Keller's post-911 sermon might top the list. I found it a good treatment of the problem of evil delivered under extraordinary circumstances.

    I suspect every preacher could benefit from Sinclair Ferguson's Paul on Union with Christ. And what's good for preachers to hear is almost always great for every believer, too. This is the address that comes to mind when I think of a cap to Ferguson's ministry.

    I agree with you, I just gave my honest opinion. I don't want to turn this thread into a PW thread in anyway.

    Thanks keep pitching more my way if you remember anymore. I'm listening to two or three sermons a day right now because of my work schedule and the time I'm spending to drive to work and drive home.

    The sermons were preached at an RB Family Conference. I'd also recommend the Revelation series by Warren Peel, Prof. Donnelly's successor (and son-in-law) at Trinity Reformed Presbyterian Church (Newtonabbey) available on Sermonaudio, also the Daniel series.

    I will listen. But what is his eschatology position? I hold none yet.
  15. JP Wallace

    Oh I wouldn't want you to come with any prejudicesâ˜ș. However they are not mere expositions or arguments on points of eschatology, rather they are Christ-exalting, and immensely practical applications of Scripture as these books were meant to be.

    I've listened to many many sermons by Pastor Albert Martin, but the best one I've heard was delivered at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary. the title on Sermonaudio will be different depending on what device you're using, but it's called A Godly Man's Reading Plan.

    That's good. I am looking for practical application.

    God's providence is very interesting. While I was looking for some of the sermons mentioned here, I came upon Joel Beeke's "The Powerful Life of the Praying Pastor" linked below. I don't know if its one of the top sermons in recent decades, but it surely ministered to me.

    Thank you for the thread. Now I'm about to go pray for a while!

    Thanx for the add. Was hoping to get a lot more. Hopefully some still flow in later.

    That's a very serious accusation. I think a citation or two would be helpful.

    I think it's a bit of an overstatement to say that he confuses justification by faith alone. He just tends to conflate justification and sanctification.
