What I Read Online – 03/29/2013 (a.m.)

29 Mar
    • Fundamentals are the same in all ages, but the constant necessities of the church and private Christians, will continually enforce a further explication
    • Everything then turns on the resurrection and those theologians among us who have played fast and loose since the Enlightenment with the resurrection have done a lot of damage to the credibility of Christianity.
    • Whenever a sermon (or book) provides a motive for obedience, it is almost always thankfulness for what Christ has done.  And certainly that is a wonderful and foundational motivation.  But is it the only motivation?
    • we have been convinced that our obedience doesn’t matter.   While we are rightly told that only Christ’s obedience can secure our justification, and that he has kept the law perfectly for us, our own obedience receives far less attention in the pulpit.  Justification is center stage, and sanctification is peripheral
    • It is only when we recognize that the obedience of the believer really does matter, and that we really can please our Father, that the rewards passages in the Bible will make any sense
    • While we were asleep: how Good Friday began for Jesus
