The Roman Catholic Church and her doctrine and practice
* Newly added to this web site
The Roman Catholic Church Is Not a Christian Church PCC Preaching Conference 2006 - The history, government, doctrine, and dogma of the Roman Catholic Church proves that the pope's church is not Christ's Church.

The Antichrist sermon series from 2011
The Absurdity and Impossibility of Roman Catholic Christians, Part 1 10/28/2012 - Now, this question—Are some Roman Catholics Christian?—is a crucial one. Once it is widely accepted by evangelicals, people, and pastors that one can be a Roman Catholic and a true Christian, a child of God, the papacy has its blood-stained foot firmly planted in the door of those churches, and the ecumenical error and pollution, the spiritual confusion and corruption, will only grow. Part 2 is found here.

The Bride Betrayed 1/9/2005 - Faced with a powerful, dangerous foe in the pro-death, sexual anarchist, statist God-haters, most Christians have chosen to ignore their responsibility to contend for the faith once delivered unto the saints and instead are contending for a Christian worldview which was never delivered unto the saints. And they are being willingly led by celebrity leaders who are misusing them and abusing God's Word.
The Pope's Death: A Defining Moment 4/3/2005 - Pope John Paul II masqueraded as a child of God, but his father was the devil. Simply put, the pope was a pope. The nature of popes is the nature of antichrist because they are the antichrist and the Roman Catholic Church is the woman who rides the beast. But in spite of that, you will not hear high-profile, popular evangelical--we should say neo-evangelical--Christian leaders say any of those things about Pope John Paul II. Quite the opposite.
Ye That Tremble at His Word 3/19/2006 - Why were our reformers put to death? Why were the Huguenots and our Waldensean brothers put to death? Because they trembled at God's Word and refused to compromise it for pope or king. They defended God's true Word against those who would pervert it to propagate pernicious, false doctrines. Why will so few Christians today raise their voices against perverted bible translations which propagate false doctrine?
Reformation or Consequences PCC Camp Meeting 2006 - While many evangelicals are now willing to contribute at least something to the fight against such evils as the sodomite agenda and unborn child killing, only a tiny minority of us are willing to fight against the greatest enemy outside Christ's church which ever reared up against God. Even a smaller fraction of us are willing to fight against those within the body of Christ who are aiding and encouraging that enemy. That enemy without the church is popery and the enemies within are first, the open ecumenists and second, those cowards who refuse to hold them accountable to the Word of God.
* Which Way Reformation? 3/18/2007 - Jeremiah 44:16. Christ's bride will be delivered and preserved from those men who would corrupt her and prostitute her. But don't be so deceived as to think that as long as you don't personally take part in the downgrade, which is fast becoming a free fall, that you will be untouched by trouble if the Lord must undertake reformation because men refuse to undertake it.

A Rebuke of the Manhattan Declaration Signers 11/22/2009 - The Manhattan Declaration is an ungodly manifesto, contemptuous of the blood and righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is an ecumenical treatise, complete with a Romish gospel and shot through and through with popish error. Those evangelicals who have authored this document and who have led the way in signing it show themselves to be in rebellion to God. It is, in their case, a brazen manifesto of treason against the Lord Jesus Christ.

Studies in Romans—Sermon 16
Pastor Ralph Ovadal
Jesus Christ Is Ours Isaiah 9:6. Christ does not belong to the false convert. He does not belong to those who would claim and then manipulate Him for their own gain. Christ does not belong to the apostates. He belongs to us, His people.
Sifted by Satan Luke 22:23-34. What if Peter had been a false convert, as Satan had hoped he was? What if Peter had been chaff instead of wheat?
The Lawful Use of Law Romans 6:14-15. Liberty abused to lawlessness always breeds tyranny. God's moral law ignored and abused at one point will beget more law-ignoring and more law-abusing at all points.
Horseleaches among the Lord's People Proverbs 30:11-16. If pastors are to guard the Lord's flock from savage wolves, I'm telling you we are to just as surely guard the flock from horseleaches.
Ye That Tremble at His Word Isaiah 66:1-6. Why were our reformers put to death? Because they trembled at God's Word and refused to compromise it for pope or king. Why will so few Christians today raise their voices against perverted bible translations which propagate false doctrine?
Golden Calves and Rebels Then and Now Exodus 32. They wanted a god that appealed to their carnal nature and that did not rebuke or reprove them.
Bread and Serpents Numbers 21:4-9; John 6:41-69.
Cretians or Christians? Titus 2:11-15. Will we live like Cretians or like Christians? This epistle certainly gives us fair warning with regard to the former. It gives us much encouragement and instruction with regard to the latter.
We Must Have Truth John 1:14. As the head is, so the body should be. Jesus Christ is full of grace and truth; but Christ's body, the Church, is not always so full of grace and truth.
Images and Devils 1 Timothy 6:20-21. I want to warn you about two dangerous errors that are the result of a craving by professing Christians for visual, sensual stimulation: the use of images of God and the exorcism of devils.
The Humiliation of Christ as Defined by the Scriptures 2 John 9-12. Some, such as the Jehovah's Witnesses, exploit these passages to their own destruction; and many Christians are confused by the same passages.
A Godly Man's Man We ought to remember Boaz as a choice servant of the Lord and a brother in whom we have a godly example. Boaz was a strong man with a godly character.
Blessed Be the Lord God of Israel Luke 1:67-79. We have a multitude of reasons to think and sing and say, "Blessed be the Lord God." Certainly chief among those reasons is that the Lord God hath visited and redeemed His people.
What about the Power of the Gospel? Romans 1:16. What does it say to the world about the power of the gospel when whole churches are filled with shallow, selfish people wallowing in spiritual mediocrity, immaturity, and dissimulation?
God Hasn't Failed Romans 3:3-4. God is always true, and every man who contradicts Him or does not believe Him is a liar. God hasn't failed. His promises are all yea and amen.
The Serpent's Hiss Hebrews 5:14. As we talk about this Bible perversion, remember who is endorsing and selling it. Then ask yourselves, where is the concern among the Lord's people? Where is the outrage? Where is the zeal? Where are the contenders for the faith?
What if You Had No Church? Psalm 137.
Words Matter God's Word has meaning, authority, force, and consequences. Men's words also have meaning and consequences, even though today everything is subjective to some.
Established with Grace Hebrews 13:9. If it is a good thing for our hearts to be established with grace, then we should know what that means and sincerely, tenaciously seek after it.
Is This Your Testimony? 2 Corinthians 5:1-9. Let's look at this text which is not so much a dying text, and it is not a text for the spiritually dead. It is a text which tells Christians how to live.

The archives contained here are incomplete. As time permits, we will continue to upload the many hundreds of sermons and Heart of the Matter programs which were posted on our old audio page on another site.
Important: SermonAudio tags will appear on some of the messages found on this web site. We are not in any way affiliated with SermonAudio! Please read the following explanation.
Those who listen to archived sermons or Heart of the Matter programs on this web site will notice that, currently, when they download some of those sermons and HOM programs that a SermonAudio logo appears. This is because Pilgrims Covenant Church messages were for a number of years posted at SermonAudio. But due to the increasingly deep compromise of SermonAudio in posting sermons from ministers unfaithful either in doctrine or practice or both, and also on account of the many corrupt conferences advertised on SermonAudio, we withdrew from SermonAudio. However, I did not realize when posting our sermons and programs on that site on a page for which we paid that the management was tagging our MP3 files with the logo of SermonAudio. We are working to remove the SermonAudio logo from all of the sermons and programs posted on this site which were previously posted at SermonAudio. However, this takes much time; so we felt it important to post this explanation and also this warning concerning SermonAudio, a web site with many sound ministers, but also many which are corrupting the Lord's blood-bought church.
