Sat Oct 21, 2017 10:42 AM His whole life was a perpetual cross by chestnutmare
For all whom the Lord has chosen and received into the society of his saints ought to prepare themselves for a life that is hard, difficult, laborious, and full of countless griefs. It is the will of their heavenly Father to try them in this manner that he may test them.

For though Christ was his most beloved Son, in whom the Father was always well pleased, yet we see that he was not treated with indulgence and tenderness, so that it may be truly said that he was not only continuously afflicted, but that his whole life was a perpetual cross.

~ John Calvin.

Fri Oct 20, 2017 1:24 PM The beauty of Christ by chestnutmare
A sense of the beauty of Christ is the beginning of true saving faith in the life of a true convert. This is quite different from any vague feeling that Christ loves him or died for him. These sort of fuzzy feelings can cause a sort of love and joy, because the person feels a gratitude for escaping the punishment of their sin. In actual fact, these feelings are based on self-love, and not on a love for Christ at all. It is a sad thing that so many people are deluded by this false faith. On the other hand, a glimpse of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ causes in the heart a supreme genuine love for God. This is because the divine light shows the excellent loveliness of God's nature. A love based on this is far, far above anything coming from self-love, which demons can have as well as men. The true love of God which comes from this sight of His beauty causes a spiritual and holy joy in the soul; a joy in God, and exulting in Him. There is no rejoicing in ourselves, but rather in God alone.

The sight of the beauty of divine things will cause true desires after the things of God. These desires are different from the longings of demons, which happen because the demons know their doom awaits them, and they wish it could somehow be otherwise. The desires that come from this sight of Christ's beauty are natural free desires, like a baby desiring milk. Because these desires are so different from their counterfeits, they help to distinguish genuine experiences of God's grace from the false.

~ Jonathan Edwards.

Thu Oct 19, 2017 2:28 PM The Piper debate and FV controversy by John_C
I read the following article this morning, and the writer appears to make some excellent points. Since I don't trust myself completely on such deep theological matters, I wonder what others might think on the merits and faults in the article.

Fri Oct 13, 2017 4:03 AM YEC and the NT by Tom
Years ago, I think I saved an article that shows NT Scripture showing a young earth (i.e. 6/24 hr day view). Unfortunately, that was my last computer and I forgot to transfer many of my articles and links to this one.
I do not necessarily need the articles back, but I am looking to help someone understand the Scripture's teaching on this issue.
Also, I believe there are some essential doctrines that would be effected if OEC was correct.

I did a quick look on the site and found a few articles and discussions; but though I may have missed it. None of them spoke directly to the description I mentioned above.

Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Tom
