No Sin, No Forgiveness Either: “The Strange Persistence of Guilt”

This is a profound piece!  And one of the great questions for the so-called modern and now postmodern West!  The Western culture has been broken since Rome!

Why I Blog…

Someone wrote me recently and asked me why I blog? And my answer was easy, I am a Christian pastor & teacher, and my desire is to help the Body of Christ in its sojourn as pilgrims, and help them in their “Biblicism” ‘In Christ’! Btw, no Bible reading and belief? Then no “Christ Jesus”, just that simple for me! And the major reason I quote Holy Scripture daily (and sometimes interpret) is to combat biblical illiteracy! Indeed read the Word of God, i.e. Holy Scripture ‘Body of Christ’!   🙂

ESV Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day

1 Corinthians 1:25
25 “For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.”
Read 1 Corinthians 1

*Of course St. Paul is speaking figuratively here, for with the Almighty God there can be no real “foolishness” or “weakness”! Even in the Incarnation GOD is always GOD! The contrast is with fallen humanity, i.e. us.

NKJV Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day
April 23
2 Timothy 1:7
7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
Read 2 Timothy 1

*This of course is speaking of the regenerate Christian mind!  The New Man/Person ‘In Christ’.

The Reformation in Switzerland.

I put this wiki piece up for the historical study and benefit therein! Would that the West could somehow renew itself in Western Reformational studies? But of course I surely doubt this in today’s modernity & postmodernity. WE are most certainly in the age of Gentile Apostasy! Note the Parable of The Ten Virgins in Matthew 25: 1-13. And see especially European Christian history, to the present!

The Second Helvetic Confession (1562) and the Atonement.

*I myself believe that Calvin did NOT teach an idea of a “Limited” Atonement!  But an Atonement that was “sufficient” for all men/people, but that was “efficient” or efficacious alone for the redeemed, i.e. the Election of Grace!  So strictly speaking in some way the Atonement is General (Sufficient…John 1: 29 ; John 3: 16, 1 John 2: 2). Again, more of St. Paul’s use of the Greek word, “musterion”, 1 Cor. 4: 1. And here in Paul it is used in the broadest sense of as God’s full revealed truth in the NT especially, though always rich in GOD’s Mystery!  Such is always God’s biblical revelation in itself.
