Happy Easter to all! Indeed, Easter is Christ's greatest contribution to the human race. Earth's saddest day and gladdest day were just three days apart. Rejoice! He is risen!

Merry Christmas! Feliz Navidad! Frohliche Weihnachten!


CHRISTMAS CHEER RECIPE


by Clementine Paddleford


Take a bushel of tinsel, sprinkle well throughout the house.
Add two dozen stars and one graceful Christmas tree.
Take a generous spray of mistletoe, an armload of holly, and a full measure of snow laid in curved hills along the window sills.
Toss in a Christmas carol, and season well with good will and friendly laughter.
Light the candles, "one for adoration, two for celebration."
Let the first burn brightly, and may those you love be near.
The yield:  one happy Christmas!

LAW OR SPIRIT?


GALATIANS BETWEEN LEGALISM AND ANTINOMIANISM


  Thomas Schirrmacher, PhD

Translated from German by Cambron Teupe


Serious Bible students have often asked me to comment extensively on Paul's teaching in regard to legalism and antinomianism in his letter to the Galatians.  Frequently asked questions are effectively dealt with in this exposition. For example, the following six questions are noteworthy: (1) Do both the OT and NT clearly teach a distinction between ceremonial and moral laws? (2) Should Christians exalt and uphold God's moral (ethical) standards wherever found in Scripture? (3) Is it legalistic to obey God's inerrant, written will for our lives? (4) Are OT moral (ethical) laws merely external in nature? (5) Do all of the 613 laws of Moses carry the same weight, purpose, and importance? (6) Are all exhortations in Scripture a form of law?  Dr. Schirrmacher exhibits his extensive, biblical research in commenting on these and other closely-related questions.

Simply click here to read this 90-page booklet that includes details about the author and his academic credentials. All in all, you will be richly blessed in reading this well-written, Bible-based commentary. Stuck in a busy medical waiting room, I re-read Paul's entire letter to the Galatians while there (thanks to the Gideons International who placed a Bible there). Oh yes, since I wasn't the patient waiting to see the doctor, it wasn't difficult to concentrate on what I was reading (smile). Thanks for stopping by, and may our awesome God continue to abundantly bless your quest for biblical truth. Fight truth decay, study the Bible!

DOES MONERGISM ROB HUMANITY OF FREE WILL?


by John Hendryx, Founder and Owner
Christian website: www.monergism.com


In this easy-to-understand, yet probing essay, John Hendryx provides the biblical truth about God's initiative in man's salvation. He aptly explains how God radically changes our "wanter" or desire in the regeneration process. Consequently, our desires align with God's desire for our lives. After all, God knows our needs far better than we do. 

Ultimately, at precisely the right time, our merciful God unstops the ears and opens the stony hearts of those called to be His elect by rescuing them from their hell-bent desires. Charles Spurgeon rightly assessed the dire human condition when he said, "The Lord must have loved me before I was born, or else He would not have seen anything in me to love afterwards." Indeed, He is the Potter, and we are the clay. It's all about Him! Simply click here to read this excellent, Bible-based exposition.

Today's Gem:  "Free will carried many a soul to hell, but never a soul to heaven...I do not come into this pulpit hoping that perhaps somebody will of his own free will return to Christ.  My hope lies in another quarter. I hope that my Master will lay hold of some of them and say, 'You are mine, and you shall be mine. I claim you for myself.' My hope arises from the freeness of grace, and not from the freedom of the will." 

--Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) "The Prince of Preachers"

INTRODUCTION: On Covenant Theology


 by J. I. Packer, PhD


The avid readers of this blog will remember Dr. J. I. Packer, a world-renowned theologian, as a thought-provoking teacher and writer.  He authored the insightful article entitled "Antinomianism" featured several years ago in this blog (click here if you missed reading it).  A British-born Canadian and an ordained Anglican priest, he is best known for his excellent book entitled "Knowing God." 

Moreover, he currently serves as the Board of Governor's Professor of Theology at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Simply click here to access this introduction to Covenant Theology as selected by Dr. Packer. He reprinted a treatise of Herman Witsius (1636-1708) who was a notable Dutch Reformed theologian. 


Like a high-resolution photograph, Covenant Theology vividly captures the splendor of God making friends out of His enemies in the election process. Dr. Packer concludes that "God deals with mankind through two representative men, Adam and Christ; all that are in Adam die; all that are in Christ are made alive." In theological parlance, this is known as "federal headship" or "federal theology." It effectively explains the role of the first and second Adam. Thanks for stopping by!

BORN TO BELIEVE: A Study of God's Initiative in Salvation


by Fred G. Zaspel, PhD


This biblical study is one of the best that I have ever read on this topic. You will be greatly blessed to learn how our awesome God saves "His people from their sins" (Matt. 1:21 NASB) by bringing them from death to life. Absolutely nothing should stand in our way to research the Christological and soteriological aspects of God's compassionate gift of salvation. 

It is my heartfelt desire for the insightful readers of this blog to carefully and prayerfully examine this God-honoring and God-exalting exposition. We don't give birth, neither physically nor spiritually, to ourselves. It's all about Him! Simply click here to discover how our merciful, sovereign God makes friends out of His enemies in the election process. 

Here is a mere sampling of Dr. Zaspel's comments: "How do people who hate Christ all of a sudden love Him?...To believe on Christ is an act contrary to fallen human nature!...Put another way, in order for a man to believe in Christ, he would have to be born all over again. The reason people reject God is that they want to. The problem is in their will. They are biased against Him. People are not looking for God, really; they are looking to be rid of Him. They are ignorant of Him, to be sure, but they are willfully ignorant...Are we born again because we believe? Or do we believe because we are born again?"

HUMAN INABILITY



by Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892)



The discerning readers of this blog will greatly appreciate another relevant message from the "Prince of Preachers." Charles Spurgeon was a British author and preacher in the Reformed Baptist tradition. It is estimated that during his lifetime, Spurgeon preached to around 10,000,000 people. Most people like to think that they are the captains of their eternal destiny. In this exposition, Spurgeon effectively addresses the doctrine of radical depravity due to the original sin condition of fallen man. 

Salvation is a gift to be received, not a goal to be achieved. Moreover, Spurgeon makes it clear that those who think that they deserve heaven are not Christians. In his classic book entitled "Chosen by God,"  Dr. R. C. Sproul rightly affirms that "Fallen man is still free to choose what he desires, but because his desires are only wicked he lacks the moral ability to come to Christ." It's all about Him!  Every safeguard is taken in pursuit of teaching only sound doctrine here daily. Theology matters! Without any exceptions, Christ-followers are commissioned to be missionaries and theologians. Thanks for stopping by! Simply click here to access article.


In awe of the guilt-removing, sin-atoning sacrifice of Jesus,
