"...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.

    Absolute Truth

    One of the guys in my Wednesday morning men's group sent me this email that I wanted to share with you:

    As I was driving in to work this morning, I was listening to Alistair Begg.
    He quoted from a study, “Only 32% of Evangelical Christian believe in Absolute Truth.”

    I still bet that is too high.
    I bet if you talked long enough to those 32% the real number would drop even more.”

    But then again, that is what I believe.
    And I wouldn’t want to push that on you.
    You might have a different belief that is just as valid.
    In fact all seven of you might have complete different ideas on the subject that are just as true as mine.

    I can see this happening.

    When you are not confident in the gospel, doctrine and Scripture, the thought of "that truth works for you" starts to sink in.

    We've adopted fiction reader-response discussion format into the Church in replace for author-intention.
