4. Ten Shekels and a Shirt, a sermon by Paris Reidhead, is one of the greatest sermons I have ever heard. Comments from the article Ten Shekels and a Shirt by Ingred Schlueter:
"This Crosstalk features a sermon entitled, 'Ten Shekels and a Shirt' a sermon that's considered to be one of the most influential and memorable of the 20th century. In this message, Pastor Reidhead presents listeners with some challenges: What is the standard for success in life? Is success to be found in humanism? Does it exist in verbally assenting to numerous aspects of the Christian faith? The answer he presents from Scripture makes a clear distinction between the beliefs of humanism and Christianity as he describes how each world view looks at the chief end of being. Humanism believes that the chief end of being is the happiness of man. Christianity says that the chief end of being is the glory of God; that we should not view God as a means to anyone's happiness, but instead, as an end in Himself." One can also listen to the sermon and download it from that site. If you Google "Ten Shekels and a Shirt" you will find that the sermon was immensely popular, and justly so. Reality shows me that Brother Reidhead understood perfectly of that which he preached in this sermon.
3. My Experience as a Chaplin, a great sermon by Rolph Bernard, who died in 1969, is a message that brought me to tears. My experiences verify what this preacher says. I was born in 1946 and grew up in the conservative Texas Panhandle. As a child in the 1950s some of the married uncles and other married men I knew would talk about affairs with women. In effect, they were proud of their adulteries and fornications. I was encouraged to do the same. Some young people in my high school were already bragging about their fornications. When I went to college, drinking and fornicating was a popular passtime with many of my peers. I took a 2 year ROTC program while in college. Part of that program was basic training during the summer. There, my married drill sergeant often bragged about his fornications. At one class, he told of a rendevous with a certain woman whom we knew to be married. I asked if she were not married, for which question I was ridiculed. Then, I went to the Army as an officer in 1970. When I got into advanced training once in the Army, things did not change. For example, the entertainment at our graduation party was a XXX movie with drinking and strippers. In Viet Nam, I met the only chaplin I knew at the officer's club where he joined us to drink and listen to rock and roll music performed live by Viet Namese bands. I never heard him say a word about God, Jesus, the Bible, or anything else spiritual. I could go on, but you get the point. Morality in America and in the military has continued to deteriorate since that time and continues to reach new lows with each passing year. I was surprised by this sermon because of the gross immorality that existed in the military during the two world wars. Listen, learn, and weep!
