  • The Breath of God

    from Derek Thomas Nov 30, 2008 Category: Articles

    Expository preaching is a necessary corollary of the doctrine of the God-breathed nature of Scripture. The idea is not so much that God breathed into the Scriptures, but that the Scriptures are the product of His breathing out. Independent of what we may feel about the Bible as we read it, Scripture maintains a "breath of God" quality. Thus, the preacher is to make God's Word known and make it understandable. He is to limit himself to it without adding or subtracting. As Alec Motyer has written: "An expository ministry is the proper response to a God-breathed Scripture. . . . Central to it all is that concern which the word 'exposition' itself enshrines: a display of what is there." Keep Reading
  • Enoch Kept Walking

    from James Boice Nov 29, 2008 Category: Articles

    Three hundred years is a long time. What kept Enoch walking with God for three hundred years? He had an awareness of judgment coming. He had a sensitivity to the ungodliness of the age. And he drew closer to God as the reality of these things pressed in upon him. The way to graph it would be to make a circle, space these three items around the circle, and then show by arrows that each one influenced the other. The more Enoch was aware of the judgment, the more sensitive he was to sin. Keep Reading

  • Thankful for God’s Intimate Involvement

    from Chris Larson Nov 27, 2008 Category: Articles

    ...irresistible grace glorifies the entire Trinity by proving how intimately involved God is in every conversion. It reminds us that when we speak about God's grace, we do not mean that God sits afar and cuts sinners a little slack by giving them a second chance. Rather, God places His holy hands on our filthy hearts. Keep Reading
  • Confidence in Christ

    from Chris Donato Nov 26, 2008 Category: Articles

    "Faith cannot be without a settled peace of mind, from which proceeds the bold confidence of rejoicing," John Calvin wrote in his commentary on Hebrews in the mid-sixteenth century. This point is most striking, and mostly underplayed by many exegetes. How could Calvin write something so...insensitive? And again: "We hence conclude that those who assent to the gospel doubtfully and like those who vacillate, do not truly and really believe." Keep Reading

  • Perseverance is God’s Preservation

    from Chris Larson Nov 25, 2008 Category: Articles

    "We are able to persevere only because God works within us, within our free wills. And because God is at work in us, we are certain to persevere. The decrees of God concerning election are immutable. They do not change, because He does not change. All whom He justifies He glorifies. None of the elect has ever been lost." Keep Reading

    from John Gerstner Nov 25, 2008 Category: Articles

    De Jong in his Covenant Idea made a mountain out of Miller's relative mole hill. He found Edwards to be the chief underminer of New England covenant theology. The broad structure of his book and Jonathan Edwards' place in it can be seen in the table of contents: Keep Reading
