The Secret Of Holy Boldness by Adrian Rogers

Dr. Adrian Rogers

I'm speaking tonight on this subject, "the secret of
holy boldness." I think if there's anything we need
in this 20th century - where it's not primarily the
moral majority but the silent majority - we need an
epidemic of holy boldness. The Bible says here in
Acts 4 verse 13, "Now when they saw the boldness of

reading now in chapter 4 verses 1-3, "And as they
spake unto the people the priests and the captain of
the temple and the Saduccees came upon them, being
grieved that they taught the people and preached
through Jesus the resurrection from the dead. And
they laid hands on them and put them in hold until the
next day," that means they were in jail, "for it was
now eventide. Howbeit many of them which hear ...
