How Christ Was "Made Sin"“For He hath made Him to be sin for us, Who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
I heard a man say that he was so tired of arguing over how Christ was “made sin” and how God’s elect are “made the righteousness of God in Him.” Well, I wish we did not have to argue over and debate this matter. I wish that we who claim to believe the Gospel of God’s free and sovereign grace in the Lord Jesus Christ were of one mind on this matter. But the...
Visiting punishment for Sin upon children?The concept of Original Sin is that because Adam chose to sin and disregard what he knew was God's will, all humanity has been "made sinners" conceived in iniquity and thus born spiritually dead, in a separated from God state, as if they had already sinned and suffered the consequence of sin. See Deuteronomy 5:9.
However, some reject this Original Sin concept because we here on earth are not to cause children to die because of the sins of their fathers. See Deuteronomy 24:16.
The CrossRecently I was questioned about my belief in the Cross, or the Atonement. I have posted several times, but I suppose it is that time again.
There are many places I can go to summarize my belief and emphasize various aspects, but this is my favorite. I believe it is self-explanatory and does not need my imput to make it any better.
@AustinC challenged me, saying this is nothing of substance (I suppose he means without commentary).
But here is an excellent summary of what I believe...
What Is Unacceptable in Corporate Worship?Everything that is done in corporate worship must be done "unto edifying" (1 Cor. 14:26), "decently, and in order" (1 Cor. 14:40), and "with charity" (1 Cor. 16:14).
It must all be lawful, expedient, and edifying, and it must not bring anyone under its power (1 Cor. 6:12; 10:23).
Based on these divine requirements, "whispered" singing, twerking (a kind of immoral dancing), the use of real human skulls as drums, and the playing of distinctively occult percussive music are all unacceptable...
Sanctification by God's Sovereign Grace as Opposed to "Lordship Salvation"Lordship Salvation is the doctrinal position that receiving Christ involves a strong emphasis on the initial commitment of the sinner to the Lordship of Christ by obedience to the Moral Law of God, repentance of their sins, a progressive increase in godliness, holiness and sinning less, as assurance of salvation. This is what they consider Christ Jesus as being Lord of your life. It also maintains the doctrine that makes Perseverance an emphasis over Preservation. Those who hold to Lordship...
The Importance of DoctrineHere is a very interesting article by Roger Olson well-known scholar my son has been corresponding with: How Essential is Doctrine to Christianity?
Dr. Olson is very interested in fundamentalism as a scholar of historical theology. He says he will not become a fundamentalist, but agrees with the emphasis on doctrine that fundamentalist churches still have.
What do you guys think of Author Pinks handling of "Duty Faith"?"Duty Faith" by A.W. Pink
I know DaveXR350 will love seeing this!
This quote is what he says he Strongly Opposes:
"We deny duty-faith and duty-repentance—these terms signifying that it is every man’s duty to spiritually and savingly repent and believe.
(Gen. 6:5; 8:21; Matt. 15:19;
Jer. 17:9; John 6:44, 65).
We deny also that there is any capability in man by nature to any spiritual good whatever.
So that we reject the doctrine that men in a state of nature should be exhorted to...

A. Organic Link to Link Contact:
Organic link-to-link contact cannot be successfully repudiated if we take the commission at face value. In fact, there is no other possible way that such a commission could be administered but by an organic link-to-link contact in time and space.
It is impossible for the...
