“The door of the Word only opens to the key of diligence. The Scriptures claim searching. They are the writings of God, bearing the divine stamp and imprimatur – who shall dare to treat them with levity? He who despises them despises the God who wrote them. God forbid that any of us should leave our Bibles to become swift witnesses against us in the great day of account.” Continue reading Search and See

Blights and Blemishes: Don Currin

BLIGHTS AND BLEMISHES

In recent years I have learned of former lovers of Christ who through neglect, or willful disobedience, have incurred moral or spiritual blights that shall not be wiped away.

I usually ask that if they are serious, to contact me privately. Keep in mind, there are various issues at hand. My response is below. Continue reading “So, I was asked…”

Resolutions: Jonathan Edwards

1 corinthians 2_2Early in his first letter to the church in Corinth, Paul made a bold resolution by saying, “For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” (1 Corinthians 2:2, ESV) In the New American Standard the word determined is used, and in the New International Version the word resolved is used. Paul makes possibly the chiefest of resolutions in that Christ would be forefront and foremost. Many times over we can see that Paul is both convicted of such and this conviction has become his reality. “But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.” (Acts 20:24) Continue reading “Resolutions: Jonathan Edwards”
