That Which is Accursed

We are posting a series of messages preached by Dr. David Innes of Hamilton Square Baptist Church in San Francisco under the theme “What Is Fundamentalism?”

In this message, Dr. Innes searches the Scriptures for a complete understanding of the term “accursed” used in Gal 1. The concept intensifies the obligation the believer has when it comes to gospel-altering doctrines and those who promote them.

Additional excerpts from Dr. Innes’ notes:

God is the only one who fully knows everything. Therefore, He is the only One who is qualified to determine what is good and what is evil, what is useful and what is not useful, what is acceptable and what is not acceptable, and what is desirable and what is not desirable.

It is our primary business to be in absolute agreement and concord with God in every evaluation and pronouncement He makes.

God has enemies!

  • We are to relate to God’s enemies in a totally different way than we do to our own personal enemies. The Scriptures give completely different instructions for each.
  • It is wicked for us to embrace God’s enemies, or for us to relate to them in a way differently than God does. It is wicked and wrong to bless someone whom God has pronounced accursed.
