Pastor Ralph Ovadal
Can a sinner resist God's grace? Sinners are by nature at enmity with God. They are by nature children of wrath, dead in their trespasses and sin with hearts deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. Natural man naturally resists the grace of God daily in a myriad of ways because natural man is in a corrupt, fallen state. The natural man does not even recognize the grace of God! I believe the only way a sinner can be saved is by God's irresistible grace and sovereign will overruling the sinner's corrupted will and rebellious nature. There was certainly no free will involved in Paul being called to salvation through faith in Jesus; that is a matter of record.

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.
