How Not to Foul up the Training of Our Children - Albert N. Martin
Home Individual Messages Series Page Submit a Comment

This series of audio messages is perhaps one of the most comprehensive and practical studies on Christian parenting available. At the same time it is not just for parents — it may be revolutionary in bringing adults to an understanding of themselves, and the factors that have influenced their spiritual, social and emotional development. Delivered originally in 1991 during the adult Sunday School at Trinity Baptist Church, it has since gained some renown, and in some churches has been played during the Sunday School hour.

Note 1: during the Admonition section of this series Pastor Martin very helpfully opened up, illustrated and applied many of the major themes that are found throughout the book of Proverbs. We have gone through the entire series and isolated these sections, and have them posted here:
Note 2: these 40 messages were orginally distributed by the Trinity Pulpit in cassette tape 'Volumes' – which were book-like enclosures that contained several tapes each. The images at the beginning and end of this webpage are scans of the original front and back 'pages' that were on the outside of these 'Volumes'. Clicking on the images takes you to higher-quality. more life-sized versions.
Note 3: shortly after this series was delivered (~1991) the internet began to be a commonly-used entity. One of the first (if not THE first) distributions of Pastor Marin sermons over the internet was via the Reformed Baptist Church in Mebane, North Carolina, who digitized this series into 40 "RealAudio" files that were uploaded onto their website. The audio files on this page were converted directly from these RealAudios. While other digitized versions of this series are available online (and might be of higher-quality), we have chosen to post these for a couple of reasons. 1) Their historical significance. Digital audio files distributed over the internet will no-doubt be the new-norm from this generation onward. These messages represent some of the very earliest digtalized sermons of Pastor Martin (the orginal recordings were on magnetic tape – and while these are "electronic" they were not technically "digital" but "analog." 2) The introductory comments at the beginning. We are not sure whose voice was added as the introduction at the start of each message – but the man certainly did a very good job, and we desire that these be perpetuated to future generations.
