In justification, God gives a man spiritual eyes to see, but initial conversion does not produce perfect sight. In sanctification, God progressively improves our vision so that we might see him more clearly.
The Gospel is good news. It is not intended to be merely an announcement that ordained ministers proclaim in solemn assemblies, but a song that all the earth is commanded to sing in a spirit of joy and gladness.
Adam had “forever” life, but Christians have “eternal” life.
Many Christians have not taken the time to properly interpret the word “sojourner” (or “stranger”) as it appears in Scripture. These terms are not meant to be understood as a reference to “illegal” immigration. The Bible staunchly affirms the legitimacy of borders and legal citizenship. Perhaps, Democrats need to sit a few plays out.
“Note, In confessing sin, as we take shame to ourselves, so we give glory to God as righteous God, owning him justly displeased with us…” -Matthew Henry “Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment.” Psalm 51:4 ESV
The Church desperately needs Christians to make more judgments, not less.
