"...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.

    An Explosion of Common Grace

    When it comes to worldviews, everyone wears glasses. It is the lens through which we look at the world. What about you? How do you view the events of history? What kind of glasses do you use to look at the world around you - secular or biblical?

    The statistics (shown in this video below) are quite mind blowing and impactful, no matter what your world view might be.

    Secularists will view them in purely humanistic terms, seeing them as man advancing in knowledge, status and power.

    Christians will see them as a combination of man taking the Genesis 1 call for dominion seriously and conquering his environment, along with a huge outpouring of God's grace and blessing. I think that is how the angels would view them too. They reveal the huge escalation and outpouring of common grace over the last 200 years. - JS
