Another example of why Hill Song music is dangerous to bring into ones church to sing their songs. As their music is extension & out reach of Hill Song Church, which promotes another gospel message through another Jesus amen!
Spurgeon; Remember that if you are a child of God, you will never be happy in sin. You are spoiled for the world, the flesh, and the devil. When you were regenerated there was put into you a vital principle, which can never be content to dwell in the dead world. You will have to come back, if indeed you belong to the family.
William Gurnall; None sink so far into hell as those that come nearest heaven, because they fall from the greatest height.
Jim; The Bible warns us nât to be deceived, as self-deception is utterly destructive for ones own soul amen!!
As the city since 1967 has been in Democratic control. Another good reminder why ones hope is only found in & through Christ Alone amen!!
In 2017, Baltimore had 343 homicides, a new record for killings per capita â more than New York City, which has 14 times Baltimoreâs population. In 2018, there were 309 homicides, & so far in 2019, there were 171 homicides as of July 11 â up from 147 homicides at the same time last year. Baltimore is quite literally experiencing âAmerican carnage.â

Pro 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Good encouragement for the Saints to keep pressing in & through Christ Alone. As feelings change, but Christ & His Word doesnât. Praise Him today for a Child of God, who has been spiritually adopted into the beloved, is doing better today than they are deserving of amen!!
Spurgeon; We have an unchanging gospel, which is not today green grass & tomorrow dry hay; but always the abiding truth of the immutable Jehovah."
Spurgeon; When we preach Christ crucified, we have no reason to stammer, or stutter, or hesitate, or apologize; there is nothing in the gospel of which we have any cause to be ashamed."
Planned Parenthood roots from the Beginning were knee deep in Racism, evil-evolution, so much so, that Hitler. Brought Margaret Sanger, to Germany.
Truth is the New Hate Speech, to those who want to surepress the Only Truth, that can set the Sinner free, Christ Alone amen!
Planned Parenthood, the brainchild of the radical evolution atheist Margaret Sanger, whose 1922 book, The Pivot of Civilization, is a vile, pro-evolution, how-to abortion diatribe that was reportedly a book Hitler had as his bedside reading and the Nazis the following decade would freely use Sanger's extremist ideas to formulate Nazi genocidal 'health' and 'hygiene' policies against the Jews ultimately leading to the "Final Solution" or the Holocaust.
Jim; LK 13:3 I tell you, nay; but unless ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
Planned Parenthood was clearly built up from its foundation, by Racism. It funny & equally sad in how Jim from Lincoln, has no issues with the Murder Mill of Planned Parenthood & itâs Raciest Founder!!
Wicked Jim; Jhn 3:19-20 And this is the condemnation: that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Acts 17:30-31 The times of this ignorance God overlooked, but now He commandeth all men everywhere to repent, because He hath appointed a Day in which He will judge the world in righteousness by that Man whom He hath ordained. Of this He hath given assurance unto all men, in that He hath raised Him from the dead.â
Jim, I say in love & in a respectful manner towards you. In your fallen world view, you canât even account for Racism. For your worldview clearly has been exposed on here, by your own doing. That you clearly subscribe to post modern-relativism, in what my be true for you, maynât be true for me.
You surepress His truths in acts of unrighteousness, all the while, in being held in fu responsibility for your actions, with out any excuses, I didnât know!; Rom 1:18-32, Rom 2:13-14!
May the Good Lord have saving mercies on your fallen soul, to pull you out of your great gulf of self-deception you clearly are in, apart from the saving gifts of repentance & a new spiritual heart of flesh amen!
Pro 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
LK 6:46 âAnd why call ye Me, âLord, Lord,â and do not the things which I say?
Some good & healthy reminders for one, I am what I am but by His saving mercies making me to be a grace case! Oâ how precious is the saving gift of salvation is as I am guilty of being a blasphemer too!
Oâ Lord may your people proclaim Your truths that those who are outside of You, are in dier need of experiencing of having their spiritual hearts of stone removed in & through You Alone amen!
Pro 22:1 reminds us that âA good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold."
Pro 21:23 âThose who guard their mouths and their tongues keep themselves from calamity."
The wonders of the Lord in how good & merciful, He is too His people, in showing amazing patience with us,. Praises to the Lord, as I am today & everyday. Truly am doing better than I am deserving of amen.
All the men in the world are either vessels of mercy or vessels of wrath, according to the will of God. (Thomas Hooker)
Thomas Watson; A man's greatest care should be for that place where he lives longest; therefore eternity should be his scope.
Thomas Watson; Eternity to the godly is a day that has no sunset; eternity to the wicked is a night that has no sunrise.
John UK; I have a free & renewed spirit too, as all Praises & All glory goes to no King but Christ Alone, as the essence of Salvation is of the Lord alone; Jonah 2:9. & Hallelujah, what a Savior He is amen!
Loraine Boettner; THE INFINITE VALUE OF CHRISTâS ATONEMENT; This doctrine doesnât mean that any limit can be set to the value or power of the atonement which Christ made. The value of the atonement depends upon, & is measured by, the dignity of the person making it; & since Christ suffered as a Divine-human person the value of His suffering was infinite. The Scripture writers tell us plainly that the âLord of gloryâ was crucified, I Cor. 2:8; that wicked men âkilled the Prince of life,â Acts 3:15; & that God âpurchasedâ the Church âwith His own blood,â Acts 20:28. The atonement, therefore, was infinitely meritorious & might have saved every member of the human race, had that been Godâs plan. It was limited only in the sense that it was intended for, & is applied to, particular persons; namely for those who are actually saved.
DD wrote: Needhim Please explain the source material of your comment to me for it seems that you think I am of the strip of those who are offended by the doctrine of election and the Sovereignty of God. If you gleaned that from anything I have said then that is on you because I have said or done no such thing. My last comment was plain enough in describing a 'gospel' without election and was in no way "placing the Triune God on trial." But you know this already, so please explain the cause of such a misleading comment on your behalf.
DD; I read over your comment that you were talking about, cat first when I read over again your post, I thought you were blasting on those who hold too Reformed teaching of election, in how the fall has affected the human race, in ones will being affected by the fall, etc. I thought you were saying, that if one holds to Christ Atonement, secured the salvation of many, Rev 5:9, through His Sovereign Election. That would give others a reason to blast on God, in being a Moral Monster & unfair.
& if you werenât saying that then, then I apologize for the confusion directed your way.
Thank You Oâ Lord in giving to me hope, for what a loving Savior You are. What a Friend, one has with You. In being bought & purchased by your amazing grace, through the shedding of Your Precious Holy blood. Through Your perfect Ransom, thank You, Oâ Lord!
As He never tells us he sent His son to die for every man every where, for since every man isnât & willnât be saved that would imply Christ paid their ransom price but in vain! John Owen put it so well "Did Christ die for all of the sins of all men- Did He die for all of the sins of some men- Or did he die for some of the sins of all men?"
As He then comments "If the last be true then all men have some sins to answer for & no man can be saved. If the first be true then why are all men nât saved & freed from the grip & punishment of sin? You answer "because of unbelief. I ask is this unbelief nât a sin? If it be a sin then why must that hinder a man more than any other sin for which Christ died? We are therefore shut up to the second conclusion which is the proposition we lay down as truth. (Christ died for all of the sins of some men)
Praise the Lord for the power & the glory of His gospel that changes & transform lives, to be nât ashamed of Him or of His Word amen!
DD; With love & due respect towards, how can fine creature who is fallen bring a charge against a infinite Holy & Good God. As the lost or one who is spiritually adopted into the house hold of the redeemed, canâ bring a true charge against Him. As their is no reasoning, or ethics, morality, logic, etc, outside of the Truine God. As He is Objective & nât, subjective too fallen human kind thoughts & reasoning of what is right from wrong. In placing the Triune God on trial, as a Moral Monster. As I say in a spirit of gentleness towards you. Whatever is right for God to do, itâs right for him to decree. If Godâs casting sinners into hell isnât wrong or unjust, then His purposing to do so from all eternity canât be wrong or unjust. So you must either deny that there is a hell or admit Godâs right to leave sinners to themselves to go to their own place to dwell there forever.
Pro 16:4 The LORD has made all things for Himself, yes, even the wicked for the day of doom
Our first duty is to believe, but there is nothing in the Bible which we need to shrink from believing. âFor an empty-headed man will be wise, when a wild donkeyâs colt is born a manâ (Job 11:12
God made man & every man & every thing, to glorify God. Is it unjust of God if He saves many & nâ any?
Election isnât of man. Some say, âGod votes, the devil votes, & man votes.â The Bible teaches that election isnât of the devil or of man but âof God Alone! (1 Thess. 1:4; John 10:16; 1 John 4:10,19).
Jhn 5:40, âBut you arenât willing to come to Me that you may have life.â In this little verse our Lord is telling us our fundamental & necessary things: Every man is spiritually dead & dead men need life (âcome to Me that you may have lifeâ).
There is life in Jesus Christ only for those who come for it (one must âcomeâ). No one by nature ever will come (âyou are not wiiling to comeâ). This verse lays the groundwork for the blessed doctrine of unconditional election. It expresses the biblical view of the fallen will: âYou arenât willing to come to Me.â Left to himself no one will come to Christ ever.
âWhat is the use of arguing about whosoever will when we live in a world of whosoever will nots. The universal condition of the will notsâ makes the doctrine of unconditional election necessary if any one is to be saved.
1 Cor 12:3 Therefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed, and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, except by the Holy Ghost.
Oâ how I am ever so grateful, & thankful in experiencing how wonderful Godâs life changing grace truly is. How He first loved me, & sought me out first.bTakes away the mental gymnastics away, in letting Him be no King but Christ Alone. Oâ how His marvelous His grace is, as it rightly so humbles, ones & teaches one. Who the Creator is & who is the creature is! Oâ how gracious & loving He is, that He would save many & nât any at all. Hallelujah what a Savior He is amen.
Mat 11:27 âAll things are delivered unto Me by My Father, & no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, & he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him. Goes right back to what fallen mankind willânt & canât do, apart from sovereignty God, being bestowed upon one. Through His amazing life changing grace amen!; Jhn 6:37, 6:44
If it werenât for election, ones fallen will would take one to hell; Eph 2:1:3, Rom 3:10-12, Ecc 7:20, etc. You can only get rid of election by getting rid of the Bible. As the atonement isnât designed to render men inexcusable, but rather itâs designed to save some of those who stand before God with any excuses.
A good read here; http://www.reformedreader.org/suforall.htm
If ones spiritual adoption isnât All of His Grace Alone, then one has something to boast of & in then. As the teaching of Jhn 1:12-13, says other wise. As God isnât under any obligation to save any one ever, as salvation is to glorify Himself, nât to glorify the 1 ST Adam, but the 2 Nd Adam Alone. As Christ isnât a potential Savior, waiting for sinners in the loins of the 1 St Adam, too let Him into their heart & accept Christ. I need to Christ to accept me, I need Christ to make me able to come to Him, as He did for Lazarus in the Tomb. As Lazarus didnât come kicking & screaming to Christ, no I donât want to be one of the elect. Oâ how marvelous His electing love is, that He saves many & nât any, Mat 1:21!
Grace is a provision for men who are so fallen they canât lift the axe of justice; who are so corrupt they canât change their own natures; so adverse to God that they canât turn to Him of their own strength; so blind they canât see Him, so deaf they canât hear Him, & so dead that He Himself must open their graves." -G.S. Bishop
Titus 3:5 He saved us not by works of righteousness which we had done, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration, & by the renewing of the Holy Ghost
Darren Thomas wrote: Let me put this as kindly as I can. You would have a point if anyone in the history of the reformed church ever understood limited atonement to mean that Christ's atonement was of limited value. Sadly for you the term 'limited' always refers to the application, not the worth, and the concept is therefore exactly that of particular redemption. But, as I asked before, of what practical value is it to know that Christ's atonement is of infinite value, if the trinity has determined that it will only be efficacious for the elect? You make it sound like your theology turns on this fact, but I cannot see you ever explaining exactly why. It still doesn't enable you to say to any particular sinner "Christ died for you" or even your cherished "God loves you". So what's the point of knowing of the infinite value of the atonement?
Darren Thomas; Is God under any obligations or conditions, that He has to save any one? His glorious sovereignty makes people weep, when they reflect on, what rebels & tyrants, they were apart, from Christ remind their spiritual heart of stone away! As His saving grace is truly a gift, of utter amazing, love. That He would save many & nât any. For who is truly deserving to be reconciled too Him?
As many who hold too the Doctrines of Grace, who arenât ashamed of the gospel, who know, that their is no true seeker outside of the Eternal Godhead, seeking after one first. As their is none who are righteous apart from the imputed righteousness of Christ Alone.
Oâ glorious itâs to proclaim no King but Christ Alone amen!
Spurgeon; If sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. & if they will perish, let them perish with our arms around their knees, imploring them to stay. If hell must be filled, at least let it be filled with the teeth of our exertions, & let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for.
Spurgeon; To be laughter at is no great hardship to me. I can delight in scoffs and jeers Caricatures, lampoons, and slanders are my glory. But that you should turn from your own mercy, that is my sorrow. Spit on me, but, oh, repent! Laugh at me, but, oh, believe in my Master! Make my body as the dirt of the streets, but dam nât your own souls!
