    Complete Sermon Series on Exclusive Psalmody

    Dear Friends,

    Over the past several months, in the evening service, the Pastor has been preaching through a topical series on Reformation Distinctives. The idea behind this was both to remind and refresh - primarily to those who have grown up in a Confessional Church - the why of some of the things we believe as Reformed Presbyterians, according to the Confession & Catechisms.

    Listed below are all of the sermons in this particular series which deal with the subject of Exclusive Psalmody in light of the Regulative Principle of Worship (the first one is really an introduction to the whole 'Reformation Distinctive' series, but sets the context for the following sermons). The Pastor himself has made mention that some of the listening could be tedious, but was necessary for answering some objections and laying the groundwork for proving out the belief that the Psalter is the only authorized book for God's sung praise. I hope you will find these helpful if you're so inclined to take a listen.

    Thanks to Mr. Coldwell for cleaning up the titles to the links and making them more manageable.

    Just a note, the additional link he provided, is the first part of the series on whether instrumental music should be used in the ordinances of worship of the New Testament administration of the Covenant of Grace. I'll try and remember to add the additional sermons in that series as they're preached.

    Wow that's what I call depth. Must say this topic was never preached in Free Church circles as far as I know for a long time, until of course a (very) few here and there in the wake of the assembly's decision to abandon it.
    Where is this church? It is a seperate denomination from RPCNA?
    Thanks for sharing.

    Dear David,

    We are in the RPCGA denomination, which is, itself, not an Exclusive Psalmody denomination. However, our particular church is. You can click on the links both to our local church website and/or the denomination in my signature line.

    Do you know the FPCS congregation in Sante Fe at all? They'd be pretty similar to you.

    Folks, this is a most excellent series.
    If you are considering the subject of EP I highly recommend listening to this series along with a study of the book Songs of Zion by Michael Bushell.
    This series is very thorough, moving from Genesis and the origin of instruments and Psalming, throughout the old and New Testaments in a very comprehensive and fair manner.

    Thank you Joshua for posting,
    and Thank you Rev. Rudell for preaching the series.

    The Lord has worked in our hearts through the study of Exclusive Psalmody including this series, Bushells book, exclusivepsalmody.com and fpcr.org.
    EP folk can add another family to the fold.
