,On page 6 of this sermon, right after the illustration of paying taxes the author included this statement: "God also created Christ to be the federal representative of all redeemed humanity." I hope this was simply a typo or misstatement. Christ was not created, His is eternal, God of God. You might consider revising this statement.
,If I heard this sermon sitting in a Presbyterian church, I'd be wanting to shout my objections over the congregations: "WHAT? THAT'S your conclusion? What of Thomas Jefferson's insistence that Paul CORRUPTED Christ's message?" Your source absolving Paul of being "the chief culprit?" Paul himself! But The Damascas Document, the Dead Sea Scrolls, even Acts itself, all show that Paul was believed by Jesus' apostles - even his own brother - to have fabricated the early Christian church and falsified its message, which was mostly at odds with Jesus' own. This sermon will sound to anyone listening as weak propaganda, and will provide no way for a congregation to contend with some quite serious questions about the veracity of the New Testament.
I suggest you read Luther's Commentary on Galatians before you comment.
