If you want to see what sin really is (Philpot, “Sin Condemned and Righteousness Fulfilled”) To cast the sinning angels out of heaven; to banish Adam from Paradise; to destroy the old world by a flood; to burn Sodom and Gomorrah with fire from heaven– these examples of God’s displeasure against sin were not sufficient […]

Exclusive and Inclusive Greg Elmquist The gospel of God’s grace in Christ Jesus is both exclusive and inclusive. It is a double-edged sword. It cuts people out and it cuts people in.
