Sun Jan 10, 2021 8:31 PM The Christian and current events [by chestnutmare]
It befits the servants of God in every age to observe the public events of their own day and to compare them with the predictions of unfulfilled prophecy. There is nothing commendable in an ignorant indifference to contemporary history. The true Christian should rather watch the career of governments and nations with a jealous watchfulness and hail with gladness the slightest indication of the day of the Lord being at hand. The Christian who cannot see the hand of God in history, and does not believe in the gradual movement of all kingdoms towards the final subjection of all things to Christ is as blind as the Jew!

~ J.C. Ryle (from his commentary on Luke, Chapter 12)

Happy 25th Anniversary to The Highway!

This is our 25th year online. With the distractions of current events, we forgot to acknowledge and celebrate 25 years of service here on The Highway on January 6th. We thank the Lord for this opportunity and means to reach the saints throughout the world and provide means for growth in their walk with the Lord.

May the Lord glorify His holy Name and use The Highway for the upbuilding and strengthening of His saints.

And a highway shall be there; and a road, And it shall be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean shall not pass over it, But it shall be for others. Whoever walks the road, although a fool, Shall not go astray. (Isaiah 35:8)

Thu Jan 07, 2021 5:55 PM Did Trump Throw Pence under the Bus? [by Tom]
Yesterday was not exactly a great day in the history
If the USA.
Today I came into work and the talk in the break room was
how Trump was throwing people under the bus and this included
Pence.
I had not heard that, before; however The people who told me
that were anti-Democrat’s.
Can someone point me to the truth concerning this?
The way these people are talking is that although they
can’t stand Biden, they are glad to see Trump gone.

Free Will compatible with Sovereignty

Many wrestle believing free will is incompatible with Divine Sovereignty. But I think the Westminster Confession solved this paradox some 300 years ago.

CHAPTER 3; OF GOD’S DECREE

In modern English provided by the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.

1. God, from all eternity, did—by the most wise and holy counsel of his own will—freely and unchangeably ordain whatever comes to pass. Yet he ordered all things in such a way that he is not the author of sin, nor does he force his creatures to act against their wills; neither is the liberty or contingency of second causes taken away, but rather established.

The way I understand this is, we freely choose what we want based on the reasons (secondary causes) God sent to create our choices.

Another way to say it is that every free choice people make stems from a reason or situation God created for them to base it on, from eternity.

Trinity & Creation by Richard Barcellos

I just received a late Christmas gift; it is a book called ‘Trinity & Creation’ by Richard Barcellos.

I heard about this book a while back and because of the author, whom in recent years I have grown to respect, I decided I wanted it.

The book is actually written with pastors and theology students in mind; but says any Christian who is serious about theology will benefit.
The book uses confessions such as the WCF the Savoy Declaration and the 1689 LBCF; but because the author himself adheres to the 1689 LBCF, he uses it more than the others. Something else, that I noticed that caught my attention, is that the author relies more on the thoughts of 17th century theologians more than he does modern theologians.

Reading more about the book, he ties the Trinity with Creation, because he believes it is important to understand God, if you are going to understand His creation.
The book is both hermeneutical and systematic.

I look forward to digging in.
