"...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)

    Thank you for your prayers

    Thanks for your prayers regarding tonight's radio show. I think it went well. Callers asked some great questions and I think I was able to say enough to point people in the right direction biblically. If you missed the show, you can hear it for the next month or so on a podcast here.

    One caller asked a question about 1 John 2:2 which I didn't really have time to answer (with less than 90 seconds before the end of the show) and I promised I would post a fuller answer before the end of the evening... so here we go. Three things might be helpful:

    My article on 1 John 2:2 here.

    ...this article on John's use of the word "world" here.

    .. and Dan Phillips' article here.

    God bless - and please remember Thursday in your prayers when I host the show again. Thanks so much. - JS
