Before you EXPRESS OPPOSITION to this sermon on language in the pulpit:

  1. You really need to deal with the exposition that Phil does on Titus 2:7-8 instead of just defending your favorite preacher (i.e. Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church in Seattle) that uses language in the pulpit that Scripture condemns.

  2. Read Phil's 2 blogs where he answers questions about this sermon (either at the end of the downloadable PDF found on this sermon page or at the links below):

  3. Consider these texts on language:
    “but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity”
    -1 Timothy 4:12

“in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned”
-Titus 2:7-8

“For an overseer, as God's steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered… but… self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined”
-Titus 1:7-8

“Therefore an overseer must be above reproach… respectable…”
-1 Timothy 3:1

“Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths”
-Ephesians 4:29

-“Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place"
-Ephesians 5:4

“But now you must put them all away… obscene talk from your mouth”
-Colossians 3:8

“the evil person out of his evil treasure brings forth evil. I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak”
-Matthew 12:34-36
