Adrian Rogers

I listen to podcasts in my car while I drive to work. Several of the people I listen to regularly are Bob George, Charles Stanley and Adrian Rogers. I don't always agree with what they have to say and the way they say it, but I enjoy hearing each ones perspective.

I have heard several messages from Adrian Rogers in the last few months that I thought were excellent. I don't know when they were preached, because he has went to be with the Lord. The first two messages were from a series on the fruits of the Spirit. Enjoy!

Self Control
War between the Spirit and the flesh

As you can imagine, and probably like yourself, I have more thoughts in common with Bob George than with the other two men, but I also have enjoyed a lot of the things I've heard from both Rogers and Stanley over the years.

I once saw Charles Stanley's name on a list of "Exchanged Life" teachers, and my first thought was, "I wouldn't really agree with that." The next several of his programs that I heard on the radio were pure grace / EL messages, and I thought, "Hmmm, maybe he's really come around!" After that, however, I heard a lot of stuff that made me cringe. ;) But again, with both Rogers and Stanley, there is quite enough great stuff to keep me listening.

I have had several friends over the years that play golf. I would listen to them talk about how frustrating it is. I would ask them why they just didn't quit the game if it frustrated them so much. Almost invariably, each one would tell me that every so often they would hit the ball perfectly and that was all it took to keep them going.

I kind of feel that way about Charles and Adrian...well maybe not that strongly :) Every so often I will hear one of their sermons and just say, WOW!
