Creeping towards a new beginning...

"Faithfulness means firmly adhering to the observance of a duty, keeping your word, fulfilling your obligations. It involves being loyal, constant, and reliable." - Bob Kauflin

Which means I stink at being a blogger if I'm supposed to be regular about this.

So here's what I want to do. One blog a month. One.

If I happen to do more than that so be it. But I'm going to try and post at least one. And you can send me a message if I don't. Do it. Remind me.

So this is my blog for August.  Be faithful.

Yes.  I am still alive and realize I have a blog.  Now to think of something to post.

Worldliness in the Church

An article from 1998 (click here to read) by David Wells articulating that the character of contemporary evangelicalism is changing because of its unwitting entanglement with a culture that has the power to eviscerate the doctrinal substance of that faith.

The religion of Christ is the religion of JOY.  Christ came to take away our sins, to roll off our curse, to unbind our chains, to open our prisonhouse, to cancel our debt; in a word, to give us the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.  Is not this joy?  Where can we find a joy so real, so deep, so pure, so lasting?  There is every element of joy – deep, ecstatic, satisfying, sanctifying joy – in the gospel of Christ.  The believer in Jesus is essentially a happy man.  The child of God is, from necessity, a joyful man.  His sins are forgiven, his soul is justified, his person is adopted, his trials are blessings, his conflicts are victories, his death is immortality, his future is a heaven of inconceivable, unthought-of, untold, and endless blessedness.  With such a God, such a Saviour, and such a hope, is he not, ought he not, to be a joyful man?

Do you really understand the Bible?

Charles Spurgeon wrote, "The doctrine of the covenant lies at the root of all true theology.  It has been said that he who well understands the distinction between the covenant of works and the covenant of grace, is a master of divinity.  I am persuaded that most of the mistakes which men make concerning the doctrines of Scripture, are based upon the fundamental errors with regard to the covenant of law and of grace."

Today there is a lack of teaching on the covenant by both mainline and evangelical churches.  Which is why we often find ourselves strangers among our own people. 

With that in mind I recently found this chart that illustrates and helps to show what God has/is doing in the redemptive history of Scripture and the present/future outworking of that redemption by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I hope this will help you in your search to understand Scripture and if you have any questions feel free to send me a message.
