ACCORDING TO THE FREE-WILL SCHEME

Posted by on May 9, 2019 at 12:10 pm

ACCORDING TO THE FREE-WILL SCHEME, the Lord intends good, but He must wait like a lackey on His own creature to know what his intention is; God willeth good, and would do it, but He cannot because He has an unwilling man who will not have God’s good thing carried into effect. What do ye, sirs, but drag the […]

DEALING OUR BREAD TO THE HUNGRYBy only the constraint of Christ’s love for us, believers deal our bread to the hungry by telling others how Christ broke our yoke by bearing our sins on the cross. We bring the poor to our house—Christ’s church—to hear the good news of our Redeemer. The gospel is the means God […]

FREE TO COMMIT MURDER We believe the word of God which declares that Christ established the law for his people so that every believer called to faith in Christ is not under law but under grace. Therefore, we are accused of being antinomians. One of the common arguments involves picking out one of the ten […]
