"...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 fool has said in his heart there is no God.

    Pro 15:24 The path of life leads upward for the prudent, that he may turn away from Sheol beneath.

    If you know the word of GOD but you dont do the will of God it means that you are a fool, If you live your life the way you feel not by the way GOD tells us in the bibble u are a fool,
