Is Salvation a Matter of Your Free Will… or God’s?

Is Salvation a Matter of Your Free Will… or God’s?

The issue of the gospel is not how do we get sinful people to a holy God; but how does a holy God come to sinful people without violating His holiness and justice? The answer is cross (Heb 2:17). But in evangelism is God a frustrated suitor nervously waiting for sinful man to choose Him? Does man have a free will to choose God; or does God alone have a free will to choose man? (Romans 9:10-24)

The Sovereignty of God and Prayer by John Piper

The Sovereignty of God and Prayer by John Piper

“the Spirit of God intercedes for us according to the will of God” (Romans 8:27)

I am often asked, “If you believe God works all things according to the counsel of his will (Ephesians 1:11) and that His knowledge of all things past, present, and future is infallible, then what is the point of praying that anything happen?”

Usually this question is asked in relation to human decision: “If God has predestined some to be his sons and chosen them before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4) then what’s the point in praying for anyone’s conversion?”

The Gospel According to Jesus (what it is and what it’s not)

The Gospel According to Jesus (what it is and what it’s not)

The great divines of the 17th century stated what they were for and to clarify what they denied on certain theological issues. This is the spirit of this post for our church. Nothing more important than the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ! It was THE test for orthodoxy in Paul’s day and it is in ours as well! (Galatians 1:6-9) May this portion of a statement of faith encourage you in the truth and life-changing hope of the gospel of Jesus!

The Golden Chain of Salvation

The Golden Chain of Salvation

by Pastor SJ Camp This is one of the most profound and assuring promises in all of Scripture. It is commonly referred to as, “The Golden Chain of Salvation.” It is a chain of five eternal links: God foreknew; God predestined; God called; God justified; and God glorified. Every aspect of our salvation is all and only of Him. No room for man’s self-glory here; no room for a hint of human praise; no room for boasting in ourselves. This is the great work of the Lord alone in our salvation.

“The Christians Bill of Rights” (living godly in a pagan society)

In Augustine’s brilliant tome, “The City of God”, he depicts members of two societies: The City of God and The City of Man. Both are bound by God’s sovereignty; both are under the authority of His Word, but the two cities posses very different realities.

The Glory of Christ in Imputation – Our Sin to Him, His Righteousness to Us!

The Glory of Christ in Imputation – Our Sin to Him, His Righteousness to Us!

For our sake He made Him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:21)

He Remembers Our Sin No More!

He Remembers Our Sin No More!

by Charles Spurgeon “When we know the Lord, we receive the forgiveness of sins. We know Him as the God of grace, passing by our transgressions. What a joyful discovery is this!”
