The bad news of rejecting the good news must be pressed home at some point.

But why lead with it? Preach Christ and his kingdom first! Give them something to reject... and so warrant the bad news

Christ and his kingdom first... Give them something to reject... and so warrant the bad news. scratch1

Why not follow the biblical pattern which declares the hopeless condition of all and the incomprehensible determinate council of God to show mercy and grace to sinners in Christ Jesus to redeem them through His substitutionary death and imputing His perfect righteousness to their account though faith in Him?

J.I. Packer is of the same mind: The Old Gospel and the New.

Does the 'bad news' need a warrant to be declared? Isn't the 'bad news' and inherent and inseparable part of the true Gospel which is in its entirety 'good news'? Is it not an indisputable truth that the natural man hates God and by nature rejects the Gospel? God does NOT love sinners just the way they are! ALL are by nature children of wrath and liable to judgment. The 'good news' is that in love, God sent His only begotten Son to save them from their sins so that they will not perish. The FIRST work of the Spirit is to convict a sinner of their sin(fulness) Joh 16:8 [notice the order how the Spirit works].

Church is mimicking the state and the state is mimicking Satan. My litmus test for everything is, ‘How does this glorify God?’
I apply it to woke ‘christianity’, celibate gay ‘christians’ and all the other nonsense coming down the pike. I can’t believe how far down even so-called reformed churches are following the culture and left politicians down the road to oblivion.

Like Machen said, liberalism is another religion all together, and there is practically no distinction between religious and political liberals - it’s all the same. Machen’s Christianity & Liberalism is essential reading for everyone.

Here is a question asked of me; that I don't know how to answer.
What do you say to a person that believes that cremation is sinful. Yet says, because the cost of being buried starts around $8 thousand; they do not see an alternative.

"A horrible decree ...." "Most ruthless statement. . . ." "A terrible theological theory. . . ." "An illegitimate inference of logic. . ." These and other similar epithets have been used frequently to articulate displeasure and revulsion at the Reformed doctrine of double predestination. Particularly abhorrent to many is the notion that God would predestinate (in any sense) the doom of the reprobate.

I decided to include this article after it was mentioned in a discussion here and realized that although it is the most popular of all other articles on The Highway, it had never been featured as The Article of the Month. bingo

Alrighty.....it now has that great distinction. bigglasses

No introduction! but to say, if you have never read this particular article, DO IT! And , if you have read it before, READ IT AGAIN! giggle

You can access this article right now by simply clicking here:Double Predestination.

OR you can always visit The Highway website and click on the "Article of the Month" logo.

In His service and grace,

Richard is in Glory with the Lord!

I wanted to inform you all of the passing of Richard Bennett yesterday, Sept 23, 2019.

Arrangements are underway for his memorial service and details will be posted at https://bereanbeacon.org soon.
Please pray for Richard's wife Lynn as she makes arrangements while still battling stage 4 cancer.

Things have changed greatly over the past 50 years in both denominations, and not for the better unfortunately. So, it is near impossible for me personally to be able to say with any confidence what the actual reason is for their fencing the table. shrug The biblical reason for the practice used to be based upon,

Quote
1 Corinthians 11:27-29 (ASV) "27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat the bread or drink the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man prove himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh, eateth and drinketh judgment unto himself, if he discern not the body."

In short, those who desired to participate in the Lord's Supper must be able to provide a credible profession of faith and not be under biblical discipline from another recognized church. Intellectually, the individual must have a reasonable understanding of salvation and of the sacrament/ordinance.
