SEBTS Chapel - Troy Bennett February 22, 1961

  • No introduction was given for Troy Bennett, but he was a missionary in Southern Asia and a former graduate of SEBTS. He recounts the cultural differnces between his home and the mission field, remembering what he and his family had to learn while there, including customs, language, etc. (00:00-05:58). He then talks about a bothering question, “What is a Christian,” concerning which he received affirmative answers from many who did not know themselves what it meant to be a Christian. Identifying as Christian here meant identifying against over 85% of the Muslim, Buddhist, and Hindu population (05:59-12:52). He then speaks about his experience of those in the East viewing the American West as “Christian” (12:53-17:07). Bennett referred to the Sermon on the Mount from Matthew 5-7 to determine what it truly means to be a Christian (17:08-21:01) before closing his time in prayer (21:02-22:38). Organ music ends the service (22:39-24:42).
