The Gray Areas of Christian Liberty

In my last article, I defined and explained the main teaching of Scripture concerning Christian liberty. Contrary to popular opinion even among conservative Christians, true freedom as defined by the Bible is not the right to do whatever we please. Rather, it is the rescued condition of the believer from Satan’s bondage of selfish sin, […]

The Sweet Slavery of Christian Liberty

The liberty which Christ hath purchased for believers under the gospel consists in their freedom from the guilt of sin, the condemning wrath of God, the curse of the moral law; and, in their being delivered from this present evil world, bondage to Satan, and dominion of sin; from the evil of afflictions, the sting […]

Common Grace: Reformed Doctrine or Fallacy (2)

In the previous article we gave Scriptural proofs against the three points of common grace and explained the differences between providence and grace. Not included in the three points of common grace are two points which Richard Mouw brings up in his book, He Shines in All That’s Fair, that need to be considered with […]
