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

“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.

“A Living Hope” – the Assurance of the Resurrection! (1 Peter 1:3-9)

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?”
