Ten Indictments Against the American Church by Paul Washer

  1. A practical denial of the sufficiency of Scripture.
  2. An ignorance of God.
  3. A failure to address man’s malady.
  4. An ignorance of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  5. An ignorance of the doctrine of regeneration.*
  6. An unbiblical gospel invitation.
  7. Ignorance regarding the nature of the Church.
  8. A lack of loving and compassionate Church discipline.
  9. A silence on separation.
  10. Lack of children being taught in the home.

Praise God for men like Paul Washer who aren’t afraid to preach such truths attacking the elephants in the room.


*Mr. Washer said “fourth” twice so I am re-numbering them accordingly. 🙂

Well, this is about the 10th time I’ve seen reference to this sermon, so I guess I really need to listen to it!

He does make some good points about the problems in the church. These are the same challenges she has faced throughout time. However, the cure is to repent and receive the forgiveness of sin not try to do better. When one repents and receives this forgiveness he or she will do better due to the fact of not quenching the Spirit. His sermon does not give us this cure but rather leaves one hanging in despair or in self righteousness thanking God it is other people doing this and not me.
