"...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 Dangers of the Therapeutic Gospel

    I just read an incredibly good article on "the therapeutic gospel" at the 9marks web site by David Powlison. It shows the state of the church in general (the bad news) but points the way forward towards a new reformation in preaching. It has stirred me up no end. God wants His pulpit back. You will find the article here. - John Samson

    I continue to work on the manuscript of my book on forgiveness. During the last week I have been writing a chapter where I talk about the dangers of "therapeutic forgiveness" which is probably the dominant view amongst Christians at the current time. Powlison's comments on this area are critical.
