"...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)

    On the day after an historic election

    Some strong and sober words on the day after an historic election from Dr. James White:

    wow, that was pretty powerful. thanks for putting this up.

    As far as I see it, US was built upon and has been a country of Deism, which is practical atheism. Marriage, especially hetrosexual marriage has been corrupted long long time ago, Sanctity of life has been lost long long time ago, killing so many innocent people.

    Some very very strong and sober words indeed by Dr. White! .... Thanks for posting this. The warnings are not going unnoticed by me! Thanks again John for posting this!! May the Lord richly bless you as you go about edifying the Church in the way you have here on this blog!!!

    A sobering message; but, lest we despair, let us remember that as stated in article three of the Westminster Confession of Faith:

    I. God from all eternity, did, by the most wise and holy counsel of His own will, freely, and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass; yet so, as thereby neither is God the author of sin,nor is violence offered to the will of the creatures; nor is the liberty or contingency of second causes taken away, but rather established.

    I believe our prayer for this day and age must be "Father, guide our steps and direct our paths. Make us willing and obedient servants to Your will and purpose. Whatever that purpose is and whatever our path may be, may the light of Your truth guide and comfort us. Give us courage to be the people you have called us to be."

    The enmity between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent will continue until the restoration of all things on That Day by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. May we be transformed by the renewing of our minds daily in God's truth, His word, and be discerning in this evil age.
