"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    The Parables of Jesus

    Today I Heard a broadcast about the Parables on the White Horse Inn Online. A Christ-centered message that is well worth listening to .... Recommended!

    What is the purpose of the parables? Some have argued that Jesus spoke in parables in order to reach the masses. But is that the true purpose of the parables as described in the Gospel accounts? What are the parables all about? Join the hosts as they discuss why Jesus taught in parables and what they mean. "To you has been given the mystery of the kingdom of God, but for those outside everything is in parables; so that they may indeed see but not perceive, and may indeed hear but not understand; lest they turn again, and be forgiven." (Mk 4:11-12).
