Yesterday at 05:28 AM Are All Parables and Miracles Gracious? by Peter Masters by Pilgrim

This month's article deals with the subject of hermeneutics; biblical interpretation. Dr. Peter Masters writes on a particular genre of biblical writing, parables and miracles which he believes, and I agree have been woefully misunderstood and thus wrongly applied due to a faulty hermeneutic; method of interpretation. His approach, which I again believe is correct is to understand parables and miracles as evangelistic, i.e., they are all revealers of the gospel. That is not to say that the whole gospel can be found in any particular parable or miracle. Like the Bible itself, they are a facet of the whole.

Dr. Masters shows both the negative, how many modern scholars, pastors and individual professing Christians wrongly use parables and miracles and the positive, i.e., how they should be understood and why. It's somewhat amusing that the author should have to write on this subject since the Scripture's own method of interpretation has been established for centuries and recognized by practically the entire Church, acknowledging that a few erred and when they did, it was catastrophic... until recently, when now even once conservative seminaries are teaching serious errors concerning hermeneutics, which of course results in wrong doctrine and wrong practice, aka: heresy.

Friday, July 31, 2015 4:20 PM Assurance of Salvation by Tom

There are times when I am counselling someone from God's Word, where I struggle to find the words to say that adequately convey what is on my mind.
Such is the case with a friend of mine who is struggling with his assurance.
I am trying to convey to him that his assurance is not based on his performance, that if it was based on his performance his salvation would be tentative at best and if he slipped up, "oops he lost his salvation." I understand that one is truly saved, they will bear fruit in keeping with repentance. However, our assuarance is not based on our performance; it is based on the Word of God, the life, death and resurrection as well as the fact God told us in Romans 8:29 that we have been predestined to be conformed to the image of Christ.
However, in light of 1John 2:3, I am struggling to show him how this is not a contradiction, seeing how the verse seems to be based on performance.
I understand that this is not the case, but how do I convey this truth in a way that doesn't confuse him?
Tom

Tuesday, July 21, 2015 10:17 AM Israel and being divorced by Mckinley

Greetings, I have a friend who asked me concerning God divorcing Israel, and people using that as a verse to justify divorce in their marriage,. I know this is false, but is there any information on this topic?

Monday, July 20, 2015 12:04 PM How Scotland Lost Hold of the Bible by grace2U

This article by Iain Murray is in the latest edition of the Banner of Truth mag.

https://banneroftruth.org/uk/resources/articles/2015/scotland-lost-hold-bible/

Although it speaks specifically of Scotland, it has application to all churches in all countries. I believe it is vital reading.

Tuesday, July 14, 2015 4:44 PM Discriminating between sinners by chestnutmare

[God] shows his freedom and lordship by discriminating between sinners, causing some to hear the gospel while others do not hear it, and moving some of those who hear it to repentance while leaving others in their unbelief, thus teaching his saints that he owes mercy to none and that it is entirely of his grace, not at all through their own effort, that they themselves have found life.
~ J.I. Packer Knowing God
