"...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.

    Post-Thanksgiving Sale at Monergism Books. If you have had your fill of yams take a look .. we have DOZENS of books deeply reduced for your reading pleasure. Books that will fill your mind with the wonder, glory and beauty of God, in Jesus Christ.

    Remember that according to Romans chapter one, unbelievers seek only to wipe clean all memory of their sense of God which the Lord planted in their hearts at conception. The problem we have when we approach our unbelieving friends is not that they lack data, but that their hearts are hardened to Christ. Our plea to them must therefore be mixed with continual prayer to the only One who can free them from their natural blindness.

    We must remind our friends daily that their main concern in life should be to seek God with all the affections of their hearts and that they will remain restless until their hearts find rest in God, as Augustine said. Most's people's estimate of God is based and goverened by their fallen mind and thus fail to see his matchless beauty. As a result they turn from Him and rather worship the vain creations of their own wicked hearts. Let us no longer speculate about God with that inner "light" which is only sin, and can only distort the true nature of the King....but rather, let us lovingly gaze upon His revelation, for we can only truly know God as he has chosen revealed himself to us. Let us pray he free us from the slavery to sin and grant us eyes to see and love his goodness, especially as he has reveled it in His Son. Jesus Christ.
