________________
In 2015, while filming a short documentary on Packer for Crossway, it came time for my final question. I was off camera, and I asked how he might want to be remembered someday when he was gone.

He paused, in his characteristic way before answering any question, no matter how routine, and responded:

As I look back on the life that I have lived, I would like to be remembered as a voice — a voice that focused on the authority of the Bible, the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the wonder of his substitutionary sacrifice and atonement for our sins.

I would like to be remembered as a voice calling Christian people to holiness and challenging lapses in Christian moral standards.

I should like to be remembered as someone who was always courteous in controversy, but without compromise.

I ask you to thank God with me for the way that he has led me, and I wish, hope, pray that you will enjoy the same clear leading from him and the same help in doing the tasks that he sets you that I have enjoyed.

Yes, if there is no apostolic healing available to the church today, it may be best to avoid getting ill in the first place.

Hey John;
What do you think of these definitions?
"In the United States, the root term Caucasian has also often been used as a synonym for white or of European, Middle Eastern, or North African ancestry." (Wiki)
"Under the U.S. Census definition and U.S. federal agency, individuals with ancestry from North Africa are considered white. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission regulations also explicitly define white as "original peoples of Europe, North Africa, or the Middle East." (Wiki)
Well Adriel, I would say that was wrong.

Of course, white is not really white, it is more of a pale pink. No artist paints human figures in white; there is no such person, not even in Iceland.

I never used the name either, if it's the one I think was meant. What is strange is, how easily we now use the term "black" considering it was once considered racist and offensive.
Yes, unusual that. I've never myself considered black, brown or white to be offensive words used to describe someone. I recently told someone that I believed brown was the perfect colour of a human because Jesus was brown.

It's a sign of the times that the memorial has been changed to avoid offence. Perhaps we feel offended because for so long our tradition has taught us differently, and we have been brainwashed without knowing it. As they say, whoever they are, the boot is now on the other foot.

You can check out the dog's name here bro, along with some historical info about the squadron for whom he was the beloved mascot.

Black Labs Matter, John. Seriously though, those who are perpetually offended will find offense, or if there are none immediately available, create one. Fallen man is such a happy fellow, no? Everything is someone else's fault.
Hi Mike, I don't disagree bro. But I have thought back over my entire life, and have never (because I believed it to be wrong, call it conscience or whatever) used that word or any similar word when talking about black people. It seemed disrespectful to me then (going back several decades) and even more so now. And I think if you ask people who do actually use that particular word, what they think of blacks, you would find that most if not all of them despise black people.

Oh, I found the article. See for yourself.

The BBC early on this morning were running a story about a memorial dedicated to a black labrador which was unfortunately killed by a car on the same day that its owner, Wing Commander Gibson, was leading the Dambusters raid on three German dams during the second world war.

The story of the dog appears in the film Dambusters, and inoffensively was given the name often given to black people, which name now appears offensive to most all people. The RAF have decided the memorial has become inappropriate, and will be taking the name of the dog off the plaque.

I remember thinking that the selfsame word is found once in the New Testament, and wondered if this will cause a problem in the future.

I've just looked around the site for the story and it seems to have been taken down by the BBC.

I did try it Frank, and it is a good formula. And I thank you for your kind words. The character of God, which is reflected in his commandments, is most wonderful. And the fact that he leaves nothing to chance adds to the security of the believer. It is most heart-warming to see in scripture the eternal purposes of God, in the salvation of many souls, for his glory. It will not be long before we both are singing his praises way beyond the blue, and we shall at last be totally free from even the presence of sin, worshipping him in perfection and glory, seeing the Lamb of God who shall light up the heavens, he who died for our sins and rose again. Hallelujah!

I just read Chris that 24 hours later, at about 5 in the morning, another lorry arrived and removed the statue of Jen Reid, and apparently has carted it off to another museum.

Well aware of dead in trespasses and sin. Still not hearing how one can be in Christ and not be saved, and if you are regenerated, you have new life, and you are indeed saved.
Bro Mike, this must be my last tonight, alas. Note,

Ephesians 2:4-7 KJV
(4)  But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
(5)  Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved)
(6)  And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
(7)  That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

I'm going by the order the apostle puts these things in. Note,

1. The great love God has for us
2. We are dead in sins
3. He quickens us together with Christ
4. By grace we are saved
5. He has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus

Because there is nothing between 2 and 3, and because of the teaching of Jesus about the new birth in John 3, I see a sinner who is dead being quickened by the Spirit of Jesus Christ before anything else happens.

1. Thanks brother. Why is it that you can say the same things that I say, but in a much clearer way.
2. Our Lord wants us to be perfect and I fall so short. And since we were saved from before the foundation of the world and our Lord never makes a mistake; He knew all of my sins and still drew me.
3. Praise His holy name. You and I are not antinomians or the easy believism crowd that uses Christ like a vaccine.
Brother Frank,

1. I'm not sure, bro. Anything to do with diet, or the length of time you cook your eggs? Seven minutes is a long time.

2. Any brother or sister who can say that, will have no problem walking in fellowship with me. The whole business of predestination and election before the world was made is always a source of great comfort to my soul, the redeemed state being one of continual spiritual warfare within, on account of the two natures fighting it out. Romans 7.

3. Amen, and praise the Lord!

Psalms 119:97 KJV
(97)  O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.

Psalms 1:2 KJV
(2)  But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

How wonderful are God's ways!

Faith? Works?

James 2:17 KJV
(17)  Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

[Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. It is like a lifeless carcass, a body without a soul, James 2:26; for as works, without faith, are dead works, so faith, without works, is a dead faith, and not like the lively hope and faith of regenerated persons: and indeed, such who have no other faith than this are dead in trespasses and sins; not that works are the life of faith, or that the life of faith lies in, and flows from works; but, as Dr. Ames observes (b), good works are second acts, necessarily flowing from the life of faith; to which may be added, and by these faith appears to be living, lively and active, or such who perform them appear to be true and living believers.] John Gill

(b) Medulla Theolog. l. 2. c. 7. sect. 35.

There are some who are fearful of even mentioning works; but the word of God has no such problem, as illustrated by this passage of scripture. So long as justification through faith is strictly adhered to, there is no worry of bringing merit into the salvation equation. Always, we remember, that Jesus has done it all.

Pilgrim!
I know your thoughts are the same as mine regarding this issue. I am eternally saved and still repent of the sins that I commit on a daily basis. My Lord is worthy to be obeyed simply because He is the Lord and Savior. How someone can sin and not confess those sins and call themselves Christians is the real mystery to me.
Yes, from before the foundation of the world.
Fellow Pilgrim, thank you for your words, spoken as they are from the narrow road that leads to life, rather than the broad road where no-one bothers about their sin.

Yes, I'm sure one of the greatest evidences of regeneration is an ongoing grief over sin and the corruption which still remains in the human breast.

Problems begin when sin is justified, and committed without a second thought. There is no crying out to God, "Be merciful to me, a sinner." Rather, an antinomian or cheap grace attitude prevails. An easy-believism which does not affect the lifestyle, a pseudo-conversion which bears no fruit of repentance, has no chastisement from God.

The people John Baptist understood repentance. They asked him, What must we do, then? And John told them, as John is still telling us today. Alas, ignored by many.

1. John UK, moving this to the mask thread to keep on subject. (Sarcasm)
2. You asked "Mike, who said he was saved before he repented and believed? Not me."
3. Before this you said "The new creature in Christ will repent and believe...." I asked "...repents and believes to what purpose? Does he get more saved than he already is?" Unless I don't understand your statement, in which case you might clarify for me. I start from the premise that there are no creatures *in Christ* who are unsaved.
Hey Mike,

1.

2. Correct.

3. It is all to do with the two births, bro. What did you do to make yourself a human being? Nothing at all. Correct, you had no part in it. What did you do to make yourself a new creature in Christ (born again)? Nothing at all. The Spirit of God did this, and everything else flowed from this birth.

Do you not believe you were "dead in trespasses and sins" and incapable of spiritual movement? But then God quickened you, gave you life, made you a new creature; and you responded just like a newborn baby responds, with a lot of noise and thirst, and an inability to articulate themselves or speak properly.

One more, Tim, if you will.

This is Jesus himself preaching up in Galilee

Mark 1:15 KJV
(15)  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

[repent ye, and believe the Gospel. He called them to repent, not only of their former sins and vicious course of life, but of their bad principles and tenets, concerning a temporal kingdom of the Messiah; concerning merit and free will, justification by the works of the law, and salvation by their obedience to the ceremonies of it, and the traditions of the elders: these he exhorts them to change their sentiments about, and to relinquish them, and give into the Gospel scheme; which proclaims liberty from the law, peace, pardon, and righteousness by Christ, and salvation and eternal life by the free grace of God.] John Gill

I think that just about sums it up, what I believe about these things. But if you would care to comment on what I have said or quoted, please respond and I will look in later on tonight.

Mike, who said he was saved before he repented and believed? Not me.

But you have to realise that the salvation of a particular sinner is no surprise to God; he has planned it before even the world was made.

Sorry Tim, wrong thread.

2 Corinthians 7:10 KJV
(10) For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

Regeneration produces a godly sorrow among many other things. And this godly sorrow works repentance unto salvation. Note,

[it "worketh repentance"; it is the beginning of it, a part of it, an essential part of it, without which there is no true repentance; this produces it, issues in it, even in an ingenuous confession of sin, a forsaking of it, and in bringing forth fruits meet for repentance, in the life and conversation: and this repentance is unto salvation; not the cause or author of it, for that is Christ alone; nor the condition of it, but is itself a blessing of salvation, a part of it, the initial part of it, by which, and faith we enter upon the possession of salvation; it is an evidence of interest in it, and issues in the full enjoyment of it:] Gill

Read carefully. Far from being the cause of salvation, repentance is itself a blessing OF salvation, just as faith is a blessing OF salvation.

The new creature in Christ will repent and believe, just as a sinner will sin by his nature. 2 Cor 5:17.

Hope you got all that, Dr Tim. And the Lord bless you, brother.

Acts 19:19 KJV
(19)  Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.

I've no doubt these were genuinely saved by sovereign grace.

[Many also of them which used curious arts..... Magic arts, soothsaying, necromancy, conjuration, and the like, being convinced of the folly and wickedness of them:
brought their books together; by which they had learned these arts; Ephesus was famous for this sort of learning; here Apollonius Tyaneus, in the beginning of Nero's reign, opened a school and taught magic, and such like things: frequent mention is made of the Ephesian letters, which were no other than enchantments; and even Diana, the goddess of the Ephesians, is said to be a magician:
and burned them before all men; **to show their detestation of them, and the truth and genuineness of their repentance for their former sins**; and that these books might not be a snare to them for the future, nor be made use of by others:] Gill

In v18 it says they believed. That is, they had within them wrought by God, both faith and repentance. If they had carried on with their magic, I would have discounted their profession of faith.

It's clear enough for them with eyes to see.

Acts 26:15-20 KJV
(15)  And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
(16)  But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
(17)  Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,
(18)  To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
(19)  Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:
(20)  But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.

When the whole scripture is taken into account, the gospel message towards both Jews and Gentiles includes repentance which is a lifelong turning from sins to obey Christ. If there is no change, there is no regeneration. In other words, the adamic nature is still in control.

Dr. Tim wrote:
Those who see themselves as doomed sinners and turn to Christ for salvation have repented. Those who genuinely repent turn to Christ for salvation. It is not two separate things, but two sides of the same coin.
Precisely! That is why Acts 20:21 is such an helpful verse. The two go together. One without the other is not genuine, whichever one it is.

I'm sure Tim in your gospel preaching you have never neglected to tell sinners that sin is wrong. The law is a schoolmaster to lead us to Christ. The one who gets saved is the one who sees sin as wrong, and no longer desires it. The thief who turns to God desires to give up his robbing, because he sees it in a new light. The occultist gives up his occult practice; he has something far better. The serial killer ceases killing people.

It's not rocket science.
