Secondary Separation–When to Stand Apart

Dr. Peter Masters: Separation, secondary separation, the view of Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones, contemporary worship, worldliness and cultural accommodation are the topics of this article. Also, how the medium may ruin the message. It is clearly a vital duty of Christians to stand apart from false teachers who deny the fundamentals of the faith. ‘Do not […]

Joan Bakewell Interviews Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones is interviewed by Joan Bakewell in December, 1970.

A Doctrinal Cancer Within the Church

In his book, The Object and Acts of Justifying Faith, puritan Thomas Goodwin acknowledges that many who finally obtain assurance do so only after many years. After many years? Really? After truly believing and trusting in Christ alone, we must wait and toil for something else in addition for real assurance other than knowing that […]

Biography: Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Dr Lloyd-Jones’ reputation as an inspired, authoritative and prophetic preacher of the Christian faith developed in his first church, Bethlehem Forward Movement Church in Aberavon, Wales, which experienced remarkable conversions. His reputation then grew steadily over 30 years of ministry in Westminster Chapel, London, England, between 1938 and 1968. For much of that time he […]

Good Doctor, Bad Medicine

In an earlier post I mentioned I was reading a book by the good doctor, Martyn Lloyd-Jones called ‘Joy Unspeakable.’ The subtitle is ‘Power & Renewal in the Holy Spirit’. Of course, the entire book deals with seeking a ‘second blessing’ and baptism with the Spirit, so the subtitle is a little misleading if you […]

Joy Unspeakable & The Reformed Charismatic Movement

I’ve begun reading a book many of you, I’m certain, have already read. It is a book by Dr. Martyn Lloyd Jones entitled Joy Unspeakable: Power & Renewal in the Holy Spirit. Now the Church is certainly in need of a revival, yet I cannot honestly say I see one on the horizon; in fact, […]

Martyn Lloyd-Jones: The Church’s Actions Against Preaching

“As preaching has waned, there has been an increase in the formal element in the service. It is interesting to observe how Free-Church men, non-Episcopalians, whatever you may call them, have been increasingly borrowing these ideas from the Episcopal type of service as preaching has waned. They have argued that the people should have a […]

I Am Sorry Mr. Modern Man

I am sorry Mr. Modern Man, even your great brain cannot understand miracles, and the sooner you realize that the better. If the gospel were something that you and I could understand it would not be the “glorious gospel of the blessed God”; it would be a philosophy that we dissect and apprehend. But it […]

Have We Forgotten ‘The Call’ to Preach?

As Christians, we have been given a commission; a command actually, namely, to make disciples of all nations. Obviously, the ‘Go’ part of the commission (not a command) is assumed. After all, you can’t make disciples unless you go where they are. However, it has occurred to me that in one way or the other, […]

The Case Against Lay-Preachers (Part 2)

Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones continues his address against lay-preaching. (Part 1 may be found here.) Let us first look at it in terms of this question of a call. What is the preacher? Well, obviously, the preacher is a Christian like every other Christian. That is basic and an absolute essential. But he is something more […]

The Case Against Lay-Preachers

Every Christian should be able to give an account of why he is a Christian; but that does not mean every Christian is meant to preach. This distinction is brought out in a most interesting way in Acts 8 in verses 4 and 5. There we are told in the first verse that a great […]

Martyn Lloyd-Jones On The Preaching Of The Gospel

The true preaching of the Gospel of salvation by grace alone always leads to the impossibility of this charge [antinomianism] being brought against it. There is no better test as to whether a man is really preaching the New Testament gospel of salvation than this, that some people might misunderstand it and misinterpret it to […]

by Dr D. MARTYN LLOYD-JONES “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again unto a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for […]


From Life in the Spirit: An Exposition of Ephesians 5:18 – 6:9, published by Baker Books. “I venture to lay it down as a rule that a Christian man should not accept an invitation to a social occasion without his wife. There is irreparable damage done to many marriages because men meet alone in their […]
