Another Ordination Sermon by Fuller

I posted another ordination sermon by Andrew Fuller (1754-1815) today.  This one has the politically incorrect title The Obedience of Churches to their Pastor Explained and Enforced (Hebrews 13:17).  Fuller delivered this message to the Baptist Church at Canon Street, Birmingham at the ordination of Rev. Thomas Morgan to the pastoral office on June 23, 1802.  No, the pastor is certainly not to be a tyrant, but Fuller does not spare emphasis on the scriptural command for obedience to those who hold pastoral office as a key to harmony, unity, and growth in a church.
