Doctrinal in the Wrong Sense

IV. The Professor continues. Preaching of the ele­ments III 1, 2, 3, (as stated in the previous is­sue) form the key that open the Kingdom to believers and shuts the Kingdom to unbe­lievers.

Exposition of I Peter 1:4, 5

In this passage we are told more about the grand and exalted “status quo” of the Church of Jesus Christ as she lives under the Spirit of sanctification. In our last essay on this chapter we noticed the church stands and praises God in the face of Jesus Christ, since He has begotten her unto a lively hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. It is a fact, an accomplished fact, that the church, believers in Christ are a new creation in Christ.

Part 3—Of Thankfulness, Lord’s Day 33, Chapter 2: The Old and the New Man (cont.)

It is not the person, which is a formal and psycho­logical concept, but the heart of man, which represents a spiritual, ethical concept, that is regenerated. Scripture very frequently speaks of the heart, and although in Scripture the terms spirit, soul and mind (nous) are sometimes interchanged, yet in general we may say that by heart Scripture usually denotes that spiritual, ethical center of man that in regeneration is radically turned about.

The Promise According to the Confessions

But if, as the Baptism Form so plainly teaches, salvation and the promise of God unto salvation are absolutely sovereign and unconditional, can we still preach the gospel, and maintain the responsibility of man? So some of us seem to think.

Followers Of God

Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear chil­dren; and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor. Ephesians 5:1, 2
