If God's good news is as good as God thinks it is, shouldn't it be a just a little close to preposterous? I think so.

The Bible says that God, through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, has made us holy already and that He has already perfected those of us who are in Christ. Doesn't that seem preposterous? It is perhaps the most humbling point of faith to believe what He believes is true about you, and the wonder of it makes you addicted to the One holding the opinion. What a concept. (Heb 10:9-14)

    And that is why we are not to forsake assembly, so that we can encourage one another with this amazing truth.

    Thank you Ralph. I am sharing this. Was just having this very conversation with a friend, not 10 minutes ago.

    ‎:-D. AMEN.

  4. I know that some people think it's just semantics. They smile, give a nod, and say, "Isn't that nice?" They won't believe it because they have been blinded by what they see against what they cannot. Yet God is particularly good at opening eyes--He is my hope.

    Amen and amen. Moralism is the greatest enemy of the gospel in American Chrisitianity.
