Wise as Serpents – A Practical Theology of Evil (link to sermon

A 26-part sermon series given by Ps Crippen at Christ Reformation Church in 2015-16. The sermon series is a practical theology of evil.  The purpose is to expose evil in its practice. Also the method is not primarily to produce an academic, theoretical, nor philosophical treatise, but rather an experiential and real life (yet profoundly spiritual) walk in the footsteps of Christ’s people sent out as sheep in the midst of wolves.  It is practical truth for practicing followers of Jesus Christ who, whether they fully realize it or not, actually do have a roaring lion on the prowl seeking to devour them.

Update 2020: We have published a 300+ page book based on this sermon series.Here is the affiliate link* to the paperback version.  A Kindle version* is also available. For more information the book was introduced on the blog here


Typical Characteristics of the Wicked – Be Wise

Using Jeremiah 5-6 as his Scripture text, Pastor Crippen examines five traits of the wicked that we need to be able to recognize if we don’t want to be duped by them.  This sermon was given on 11/7/2020 at CRC and can be found at Sermon Audio.
