Isa 43:25; John 17:4; James 2:10; Phil 2:8;
2Chron 6:36; Matt 20:28; Mark 10:45; Luke 22:44

All the false teachings concerning the Cross/work of Christ come from an unscriptural view of the nature of God. If one does not understand that God is sovereign, immutable, all knowing, holy, just, love, gracious, merciful, righteous, and a God of wrath then one will never understand the nature of the Cross/work of Christ.The nature of the cross is all about God in His sovereignty really displaying all His attributes for His glory. Christ said that He came to declare God and He did that most gloriously in His Cross/work.

Joh 1:18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

The apostle Paul in the book of Romans said that the Cross/work of Christ was a real display of God’s righteousness not a contrivance, i.e. a cleverly devised plan that took the place of righteousness.

Rom 3:26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

Paul also spoke of the Cross/work as a real demonstration of God’s wrath.

Rom 9:22 What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction,

When our Lord looked into the cup of God’s wrath in the Garden of Gethsemane He was beholding the real wrath of God not a substitute of wrath. Christ was literally punished for all our sins as our legal substitute because that was the only way for God to literally display all His attributes for His literalglory. Joh 17:4 I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.

IS YOUR CHRIST A COUNTERFEIT?


IS YOUR CHRIST A COUNTERFEIT?

3/20/10

You might find that to be a rather strange question to ask someone “Is your Christ a counterfeit? However, there are many people that will burn in hell forever because they believed in a counterfeit Christ. Mat 7:22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’

Mat 7:23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’


What does your church teach about the Cross/work of Christ? Do they teach the Scriptural doctrine of Penal Substitution or do they assert that Christ death in and of itself did not accomplish your salvation? The churches that teach against the Biblical doctrine of Penal Substitution are teaching Satan’s lies. To believe in what is not true is sinful, evil and willful, defiant rebellion against the revealed Light of God’s Holy Word.


If God says that everything that He demanded to accomplish your salvation, that is expiation, propitiation, redemption, and reconciliation was perfectly carried out in Christ Cross/work alone and you willfully deny that revelation, then you are calling God a liar!

Let us not be guilty of blaspheming God’s Word by refusing to believe the testimony He has given to us concerning the Cross/work of His beloved Son.

1Jn 5:10 He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son.

Purpose: To learn from Scripture the true meaning of Christ Cross/work in contrast to the counterfeit Christ of Satan.

Christ Cross/Work actually saves His People from their Sins

Christ Cross/Work actually saves His People from their Sins


The biblical view teaches that Christ Cross/Work actually accomplished what it intended to do, which was to save His people from their sins.


Eph 5:1 Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.

Eph 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.

Luk 19:10 for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.

Mat 1:21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.
1Ti 1:15 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.

What was Christ System of Thought?

What was Christ System of Thought?


2/14/10


Anyone who claims to be a Christian must on pain of contradiction hold to the same system of thought that their Lord and Savior held. What was His system of thought? How was His mind structured? What did He consider to be fixed, absolute, objective, unalterable truth? What did He accept as the authority of His mind? What governed and guided His every thought, word and deed? What did He rely on as the arbiter that settled every dispute? What was the basis for all that He taught? What did He believe about Himself i.e. His identity, His purpose, His mission?


Christ Alone: What happened at the Cross?

Christ Alone:

What happened at the Cross?

2/20/10

What happened at the cross of Jesus Christ is one of the most profound questions in all of human history. How you answer this question determines your understanding of the nature of God, your peace with God, and your growth in the doctrines of grace. There are many different theories set forth through out history concerning the cross/work of Christ. However, only God’s revelation in His Holy Word gives the truth of what happened at the cross of Christ. There are only two questions concerning the meaning of Christ cross/work. Did the cross/work of Christ in and of itself alone (Christ Alone) accomplish, secure and guarantee eternal salvation for those for whom it was intended? Or does the cross/work of Christ need something independent of itself in man i.e. man’s faith, works, obedience, or discipleship to make the cross/work effective. In other words, what is the saving factor? Christ cross/work plus man’s contribution or Christ cross/work alone?

Purpose: To learn from Scripture what God says about what happened at the cross. We will learn that God saves sinners all by Himself without the help of man. God the Father planned the sacrifice of His Son from eternity past to glorify Him, by satisfying His justice and holiness by means of Christ cross/work alone to demonstrate His wrath, righteousness, grace, love and mercy.

Civilization and the Protestant Reformation

Civilization and the Protestant Reformation

Civilization as we know it began a few minutes before noon, October 31, 1517.

In the small east German town of Wittenberg, a 34-year-old Augustinian priest walked to Castle Church and nailed 95 theological propositions for debate on the door. The debate Martin Luther began nearly 500 years ago turned the world upside down. Democracy, civil rights and liberties, constitutional government, religious liberty, and the free market all find their roots in the Reformation.

A Religious Fundraising Scam

The occasion for the debate was the fundraising practices of the pope’s representatives in Germany. As a Catholic priest, Luther was concerned that a representative of the pope was telling his parishioners that they could purchase forgiveness for their sins. Luther knew that God alone could forgive sins, and that salvation could not be purchased for any amount of money: It was a free gift of God.
