Great Quotes

"The major ideas underlying the doctrines of grace......that God is sovereign, that Christ died for me, that God loved me before I loved Him, that He sought me and drew me and initiated my reconciliation while I was still His enemy, those are truths I believed when I was a rank Arminian. You know what, any true Arminian believes those truths. If you believe those things, you have affirmed the heart of Calvinism and you are functioning with Calvinistic presuppositions."  --Phil Johnson

The Ultimate Question

The following message is the sole purpose this blog exists.

  What shall I do to inherit eternal life? You know the commandments, “Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not bear false witness, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.” If we say we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. Indeed, there is not a righteous man on earth who continually does good and who never sins. The wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus. God demonstrates His own love towards us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. He who knew no sin became sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. All who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved. Repent therefore and be converted, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord. Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other. Eternal life is found in knowing the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom He has sent. Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your heart. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.
