John Newton on God's Sovereignty Over all Things

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, March 28, 2012 at 8:00 AM


"From the tallest archangel, to the meanest ant or fly, all depend on Him for their being, their preservation, and their powers. He directs the sparrows where to build their nests, and to find their food. He over-rules the rise and fall of nations, and bends, with an invincible energy and unerring wisdom, all events; so that, while many intend nothing less, in the issue their designs all concur and coincide in the accomplishment of His holy will. He restrains with a mighty hand the still more formidable efforts of the powers of darkness; and Satan, with all his hosts, cannot exert their malice a hair’s breadth beyond the limits of His permission." 
John Newton

Jonathan Edwards on Efficacious Grace

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Monday, March 19, 2012 at 8:00 AM


"In efficacious grace we are not merely passive, nor yet does God do some and we do the rest. But God does all, and we do all. God produces all, we act all. For that is what produces, viz. our own acts. God is the only proper author and fountain; we only are the proper actors. We are in different respects, wholly passive and wholly active."
Jonathan Edwards

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , , , | Posted On Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 8:00 AM

A. A. Hodge

Jeremiah Burroughs on Discipline

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, March 7, 2012 at 9:00 AM

"There is more confidence needful in a thing that we impose on others, than in what we practice ourselves.  If a thing be to us rather true than otherwise, we may lawfully do it, but this is not enough to be a ground for the imposing it upon others, who cannot see it to be a truth; in such a case we need to be very sure."
~Jeremiah Burroughs~

Abraham Kuyper on Spheres of Authority

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, March 1, 2012 at 8:00 AM


“Virtually all the modern world’s ills come down to this: even the state was claiming authority, that was not the state’s or was abdicating authority where it had legitimate authority. All the ills of the modern world comes down to this: the church has not had the background (some have this as "backbone") to stand against the state. The family has been left unprotected and parental prerogatives has been stolen so that society as God had intended it is no longer able to function under the Lordship of Christ and therefore, new principles and new ideas and new authorities and new sovereignties and new messiahs had been raised up in Christ’s stead.”
Abraham Kuyper
