Who Said That?

question mark.jpg

Who said that?

"Christ offers us the gift of salvation, and he will not go back on his word. But you and I are entirely capable of going back on our word by abandoning Christ and thereby forfeiting his gift of salvation . . . . Let's consider Saint John's . . . statement: No one can snatch out of Christ's hand those who whom the Father has given him. No external power is capable of wresting us out of Christ's loving embrace (Romans 8:28-29); but you can do it, if you decide to willfully rebel against God through mortal sin (1 John 5:16-17). If you die unrepentant in that state, you will have lost your salvation because you will have, in effect, snatched yourself out of Christ's hand."

OK, take a stab . . . Put your guess in the comments below. No google searches, please!

Lutheran Advent Calendar

I'll bet some of you are thinking, "I knew it."  (h.t. Rod Rosenbladt)

I'm thinking, "that's not a bad idea!"  All I need is some cardboard and a sharpie and I can really spruce up my little fridge in my study.

Sorry, but you Southern Baptists are out of luck . . .

Who Said That?

question mark.jpg

Who said that?

"The resurrection of Jesus cannot be an authenticating miracle on the basis of which a doubter can be secure in believing in Christ.  This is so not because as a mythical event--a dead person's returning to life in this world (and this is what is involved, since the risen one is perceived with the physical senses)--it is incredible, or because the resurrection cannot be established as an objective fact by ever so many witnesses, so that it could unhesitatingly believed in and faith would have a secure guarantee.  It is so because the resurrection itself is an object of faith; and one cannot secure one (faith in the saving meaning of the cross) by another (faith in the resurrection)."

Funny, I look older and balder on TV than I do on radio . . .

Who Said That?

question mark.jpg

OK, who said that?

"Sacred doctrine makes use of these authorities [philosophers and human arguments] as extrinsic and probable arguments; but properly uses the authority of the canonical Scripture as an incontrovertible proof, and the authority of the doctors of the Church [the theologians] as one that may be properly used, yet merely as probable.  For our faith rests upon the revelation made to the apostles and prophets, who wrote the canonical books, and not on any revelations (if there were any) made to other doctors."

Who Said That?

question mark.jpg

Who said that?

"In every generation, revival has come as a result of prayer.  For example, powerful prayer preceded America's First Great Awakening, which gave the colonists a unified biblical view of the principles of freedom and helped pave the way for the American Revolution.  The Second Great Awakening which preceded the Civil War, brought a conviction from God the slavery was sin.  It was led by men like Charles Finney, who prayed for hours upon hours and days upon days. 

God still needs men like Howell Harris and Charles Finney, who will give themselves to prayer and then go and do whatever the Holy Spirit tells them."

OK, have fun with this one!  No google searches!  Please leave your guess in the comments section below.

Who Said That?

question mark.jpg

Who said that?

"We have discovered some interesting facts about covenant theology. . . . Its origin was relatively recent.  It was not the doctrinal system of the ancient church.  It did not originate with the Reformers, and actually its present form is a modification of the original covenant idea proposed by Cocceius and the Westminster Confession. . . . The theological covenants on which covenant theology is based are not specifically revealed in Scripture.  Other covenants (such as the Abrahamic and Davidic) are specifically revealed, and in great detail, but the all-embracing covenants of covenant theology are not in the Bible.  The whole covenant system is based on a deduction and not the results of an inductive study of Scripture."

You guys know the rules.  The fun is in the guessing . . . not in google searching and spoiling it for everyone else!  Place your guess in the comments section.

The Joke's on Me!

themanofsin.jpg

I've often joked that my book, Man of Sin, is an autobiography.  What happens when one of the sound guys at your church has way too much time on his hands?  He takes you up on the joke and then proves that you were right all along!

I guess I am the man of sin . . .
