In this powerful and practical 5-part series, Eric Ludy dives deep into the topic of spiritual gifts from a Biblical perspective. Spiritual gifts is a topic that is often surrounded by controversy within the Church. This series equips Christians to approach this important aspect of the Christian life with with Truth, grace, honor and love.
Doing the Twist
This is the first part of a five-part sermon series on Spiritual Gifts. There is a beautiful corporate coordination and exercise of Spirit-endowed grace that God designed us to walk in as the Church of Jesus Christ. But, first, we need to remove the barnacles from this awkward topic and freshly look at the ingenious plan God has for His people.
In this particular message, Eric focuses on what exactly “spiritual gifts” are, where they come, and what the Bible declares their purpose to be. Most Christians today shy away from both this topic and the functional benefit supplied by these gifts of grace. Ironically, Paul encourages us to have the complete opposite perspective on this matter. He exhorts us to “earnestly desire” them.
The Second Sound
This message begins a journey into the difficult terrain of tongues and prophecy and helps enunciate the place these “sounds” have in the tapestry of Heaven. Whereas many Bible-loving believers secretly wish they could just delete the passages on tongues and prophecy from the Text in order to ensure a healthier Church—the answer is not deletion, but proper understanding. After all, God’s ways are perfect! And we mustn’t shy away from trusting His grand Revelation.
The Second Sound
This message addresses the cumbrous challenge of 1 Corinthians 14 — talking about tongues and prophecy in a purposeful fashion as to not create division over the matter, but unity. This one chapter in Scripture has historically divided the Church of Jesus Christ right down the middle. And yet, ironically, the entire reason the Apostle Paul wrote it was to address division and to heal it.

This is the fifth and final part of Eric Ludy’s series on Spiritual Gifts. This message dives into the deep end of the pool and attempts to deal with the extremely challenging issue of modern-day apostles and prophets in the Church. With the startling emergence of self-proclaimed “apostles” and “prophets” in today’s Christian landscape, this message is of critical importance for the Bible believer—supplying a context for these strange and mystifying concepts and how to Biblically address them.
