What a beautiful, splendid product of chance!!! Why, my heart soars with rapture at this symmetrical alignment of molecules.

A great many learned men are defending the Gospel—no doubt it is a very proper and right thing to do—yet I always notice that when there are most books of that kind, it is because the Gospel, itself, is not being preached. Suppose a number of persons were to take it into their heads that they had to defend a lion, a full-grown king of beasts! There he is in a cage and here come all the soldiers of the army to fight for him. Well, I would suggest to them, if they would not object and feel that it was humbling to them, that they should kindly stand back, open the door, and let the lion out! I believe that would be the best way of defending him, for he would take care of himself—and the best “apology” for the Gospel is to let the Gospel out! Never mind about defending Deuteronomy or the whole of the Pentateuch—preach Jesus Christ and Him crucified! Let the Lion out and see who will dare to approach Him! The Lion of the tribe of Judah will soon drive away all His adversaries!

I'm with you on that point, Christopher- if they are willing to lock themselves inside that cage with the lion, until the lion has done to them what lions do to people... I usually find them tender enough to listen to reason in the aftermath.
I don't know about you, but I have trouble getting people to get in the cage (so to speak) They haven't read it (though they opine endlessly upon it) and/or they have some pressing excuse not to read it entirely (as we would any other book to be discussed)
Thanks for sharing brother!

Farther, no one will ever be qualified for teaching that has not first himself tasted the influence of the gospel, so as to speak not so much with the mouth, as with the dispositions of the heart. Hence, those that are not regenerated by the Spirit of God - not having felt inwardly the influence of the gospel, and no not what is meant when it is said that we must become new creatures, (John 3:7) have a dead preaching, whereas it ought to be lively and efficacious; and, with the view of playing off their part, they disfigure of the gospel by painting it over, so as to make it a sort of worldly philosophy.

It's a shame Machen is not a household name in evangelical homes. We are doomed to repeat history.

It is true that wicked men do many things contrary to God's will; but so great is His wisdom and power, that all things which seem adverse to His purpose do still tend towards those just and good ends and issues which He Himself has foreknown.

- Augustine, City of God

Come in and bring your coffee and your donuts. We want you all to just have a lovely time this morning. Don't want anyone to get upset or anything...

About one minute on the crucial relationship between worship and preaching the Word of God.

Say not, 'Why were the former days better than these?' For it is not from wisdom that you ask this.

Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins.

- Ecclesiastes 7:20 ESV

Therefore, there had to be a God-Man.

My desire is to preach the gospel, say nothing new, be an ordinary husband, dad, friend and pastor, die and be forgotten.

The first step towards serving Christ is to lose sight of ourselves, and think only of the Lord's glory and the salvation of men.

We are seeing a new era of Christian martyrdom right here in our own times, and right in front of our own eyes.

The reason a Christian preaches about hell is because that is what he deserves. That's why grace is astonishing.
