Judge Not

articles   ♦   discussion   ♦   blog Introductory Are you humble? Wow! Few questions unsettle the God-fearing soul like this one.

The Election of Grace

Election is the teaching that God chooses (elects) who will be justified (saved) by and through grace (divine enablement) , independently of human works or merit (unconditionally).  This is predestination, a pre-choosing of our destiny before the world began  based on God’s own will How this relates to free will is certainly a mystery; we cannot … Continue reading The Election of Grace

Apart from carefully integrating this concept throughout our theology, many fundamental precepts of Scripture appear hopelessly irreconcilable. For example, how can God choose who will be saved while respecting Man’s Free Will? Similarly, How … Continue reading Vessels of Mercy

My Servant Job

articles   ♦   blog Please turn in a Bible to Job 1:8 where it is written, “And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?“ We do well to consider God’s servant … Continue reading My Servant Job

Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage

articles   ♦   blog   ♦   summary The Scriptures I find relating specifically to marriage, divorce, and remarriage, in order as they occur in the Bible, are as follows: Genesis 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. There has always been, … Continue reading Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage
