9 hours ago Amazing Grace [by Tom]
I want to ask a question related to John Newton’a hymn Amazing Grace.
I was on a Reformed board and for the first time I can remember; people were questioning whether or not we should be singing ‘Amazing Grace”. I can understand people who are exclusive psalmist, but..
According to them, the hymn does not name Jesus and therefore it is questionable.
When I said that I think it is very obvious the grace that the hymn talked about was came from God.
They seemed to think it is not obvious at all,
What got me about that conversation, it was coming from people who I thought would be in favour of the hymn.
I believe John Newton believed in the doctrines of grace and the hymn reflected that.
Am I missing something?

Sat Feb 15, 2020 11:13 PM My Run In with NCT [by Tom]
For quite some time, after reading on the Highway the beliefs of those who hold to NCT, I disagreed with them. However, until now that disagreement was not too bad. Somewhere around the same as my disagreement with John MacArthur on his Dispensational beliefs.
However, I was having a discussion on a Calvinist page concerning whether or not the 10 Commandments still apply. I also gave a link to a short video, explaining further what I meant.
Someone, came on the page who adheres to NCT came on and made some pretty serious accusations. Basically claiming that the Reformers and those who believe in either Baptist CT or Presbyterian CT are false teachers. Then when I asked him to clarify if he was really calling the Reformers and those who believed in CT false teachers. He told me, "if the shoe fits."
Then he added:
Quote
False teachers have been trying to bring believers back under the law since the apostles exposed and denounced them in Acts 15. Same today. A watershed moment in the early days of Christianity. You would do well to relook at that important moment and then reread Galatians. You can’t miss it.


First of all, is this typical of what most people who believe in NCT believe?
By the way, I put this guy on my ignore list.

Fri Feb 14, 2020 8:51 PM The Blueprint for the New Birth - John MacArthur [by Rick]


I have to say that this is a thorough message on Regeneration. MacArthur explains this topic of new birth and it's importance
as well as I've heard. I hope you are blessed also.

Fri Feb 14, 2020 6:07 PM Sola Scriptura and Prophecy [by Tom]
Quite some time ago now, if memory does not fail me, in a discussion about Sola-Scriptura and the revelatory gifts such prophecy. I believe an article was provided that showed that to believe that gifts like prophecy are still in effect, is to logically not to believe in Sola-Scriptura.
I believe the argument used went something like if the gift of prophecy was still in effect it would logically mean that the prophetic words would be as authoritative as Scripture itself; seeing it came directly from God Himself.
I did a quick search for the article, but could not find it. Though I did find other articles on the cessation of the sign gifts.
I would appreciate reading the article again.
Comments are also welcome.
There are of course people that argue that the opposite it true. That the gift of prophecy does not have the same authority as Scripture and that to believe that these gifts have ceased, is to deny Sola-Scriptura; because Scripture clearly says that they will be in effect until the last days.

Wed Feb 12, 2020 12:03 PM Spiritual pride [by chestnutmare]
Spiritual pride tends to speak of other persons’ sins with bitterness or with laughter and levity and an air of contempt.

But pure Christian humility rather tends either to be silent about these problems or to speak of them with grief and pity.

Spiritual pride is very apt to suspect others, but a humble Christian is most guarded about himself. He is as suspicious of nothing in the world as he is of his own heart.

The proud person is apt to find fault with other believers, that they are low in grace, and to be much in observing how cold and dead they are and to be quick to note their deficiencies.

But the humble Christian has so much to do at home and sees so much evil in his own heart and is so concerned about it that he is not apt to be very busy with other hearts.

He is apt to esteem others better than himself.

~ Jonathan Edwards
