"...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.

    Chapter Three: To the Non-Christian (Part One)

    I am writing this book, not just because the message I have is good and true (although it is); but primarily, because the message I have matters. It matters to you. Whoever you might be, whatever you might think about Christianity, whether you're content as you are, looking for something more, unsure of Christianity, antagonistic to Christianity, or almost persuaded of Christianity – no matter what your situation may be, the true message of Christianity has something to say to you. In the next two chapters, I hope to speak to you specifically with some clear implications of the message I detailed in the previous chapter; and in order to do so as comprehensively as possible, I intend to address in order first the convinced atheists, agnostics, or adherents to non-Christian religions; second, the content, the satisfied and secular, the pursuers of pleasure and the American Dream; third, the dissatisfied, depressed, cynical or unsure; and fourth, those who are considering, who are at least open to Christianity, who are already searching and wanting to think these things through.
