Liam Goligher’s sermons on the book of Esther (pt 1)
In our recent discussions regarding ERAS we have referenced Liam Goligher’s wise words regarding this unbiblical controversy. Over the next several Sundays we are inviting you to watch a sermon series by Liam Goligher who is Senior Minister of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
In Part 1, The Emperor Strikes Back, Dr Goligher shows heartfelt outrage about the abuse of women by husbands and other men who see women as just objects. He applauds Queen Vasthti for saying “No!” and he tells women who are being abused by their husbands that his church will believe them and support them.
Watch, listen to, or download The Emperor Strikes Back.
Scripture: Esther 1:1-22.
Note: in the sermon Dr Goligher speaks about domestic abuse as physical violence, but clearly he doesn’t think it is limited to just physical stuff because he praises Vashti’s refusal to be paraded like a sex object at the King’s banquet.
