Adams, William - Man, the Minister of God: A Sermon (1855)

William Adams, then pastor of Madison Square Presbyterian Church in New York City, preached this sermon on Psalm 144:1 to the Foreign Missionary Society of New York and Brooklyn. In his address he examines an element of truth in Islam that has given this false religion its vital power - “a sentiment working in that conjunction only for evil—yet a sentiment full of force and from which the world has every thing to hope, and by which the Church has every thing to achieve when it is restored to its proper location in connection with the religion of Jesus Christ.” The sentiment Adams puts forth is this: “Verily there is a God, and man is his minister.” Adams explores the truth in Mohammed’s statement, and how Christians ought to appropriate it from a Biblical perspective as they seek to put sin to death and to bring the gospel to the lost in the work of missions.
