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

Wednesday, July 1, 2015 5:18 AM The Manner in Which the Salvation of the Soul is to be Sought by Pilgrim

Quote:
“Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he” (Genesis 6:22).

We should be willing to engage in and go through great undertakings, in order to our own salvation.

I. There is a work or business which must be undertaken and accomplished by men, if they would be saved.
II. This business is a great undertaking.
III. Men should be willing to enter upon and go through this undertaking though it be great, seeing it is for their own salvation.

Those who chose to read this sermon by Jonathan Edwards, one of the most recognized Christian scholars of America, perhaps in the entire world, will quickly see that what Edwards believed, taught and preached is antithetical to the vast majority of what is believed today and is being taught and preached in the majority of modern pulpits. It is unheard of to think that a person must spend time seeking God and finding the salvation of his/her soul after exerting much effort. Why, today it is said all one need do is "ask Jesus into their heart", or read the 'Sinner's Prayer' on the back of a church business card, or go forward to the 'altar' to receive Jesus, etc., etc. ad nauseam. Salvation today is like much of everything else we want.... instantaneous, self-induced, which is guaranteed to give one self-gratification. So, which is it? Is Jonathan Edwards correct in his understanding of biblical teaching concerning Spirit-wrought salvation, or is the modern concept of obtaining salvation what the Bible teaches?

The answer, of course, is crucial for it determines what one should believe, teach and/or teach. And, on a more personal level, it determines whether one truly has come to know the salvation God has foreordained and providentially brings to pass in a sinner's life in His good and perfect time. One is the lie of the Evil One and one is truth. Read this sermon, therefore prayerfully and ask that God reveal the truth to your mind, heart and soul.

You can read the Article of the Month for July here: The Manner in Which the Salvation of the Soul is to be Sought.

Or, you can find it in the Notable Sermons section of The Highway under "Jonathan Edwards" (first item on the first page). grin

In His service and grace,

Sunday, June 28, 2015 5:39 PM Spurgeon's Calvinism by John_C

I read where Charles Spurgeon, though identifying himself as a strong Calvinist, denied that regeneration preceded faith. In fact, he said those believing that regeneration preceded faith were extreme Calvinists (Hyper). Since Spurgeon held that view, I wonder if run-of-the-mill Calvinism today would have been thought of as Hyper back in the 1800s. Today, almost all Calvinists will affirm that regeneration precedes faith, but was that true in previous times?
