"...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)

    The Secular Mind

    On yesterday's Dividing Line program, Dr. James White is challenged by a caller, a lady named Alex.

    After the program, Dr. White commented that this call (and another like it later on in the show) illustrates "what we are up against in attempting to deal with a secularized younger generation - a generation that will soon be making moral decisions about cloning, the use of stem cells, nuclear weapons, and so much more. God have mercy."

    The argument was right, but the tone was wrong. Do we really have to make people sound and feel stupid to show the incoherence of their argument as Christians. Where was the grace in that conversation? I was encouraged by your argument (mind), but was sadened by your tone (heart).
