But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

The simple fact of the matter is that all the philosophical fruits of Darwinism have been negative, ignoble, and destructive to the very fabric of society. Not one of the major twentieth-century revolutions led by post-Darwinian philosophies ever improved or ennobled any society. Instead, the chief social and political legacy of Darwinian thought...

Justified by Faith

Written by
Do we realize that if we truly understand the doctrine of justification by faith we have already grasped the essence and the nerve of the New Testament teaching about holiness and sanctification? Have we realized that to be justified by faith guarantees our sanctification, and that therefore we must never think of sanctification as a separate and...

Sowing to the flesh - John R.W. Stott

Written by
“Every time we linger in bad company whose insidious influence we know we cannot resist, every time we lie in bed when we ought to be up and praying, every time we read pornographic literature, every time we take a risk which strains our self-control, we are sowing, sowing, sowing to the flesh.”

The Law shows us our sinfulness - Matthew Henry

"The Law shows us our sinfulness and misery in our departures from God and indispensable necessity of our return to him"
Matthew Henry
Commentary on the Whole Bible
Vol 2 , Job-Malachi, p.125

"Ultimately it is only the man who feels quite hopeless about himself who really trusts God."
D Martyn Lloyd-Jones
"There is nothing the natural man hates more than to be told that he is a sinner, and that his nature is twisted and perverted." 
- D Martyn Lloyd-Jones 
(Romans - The Perseverance Of The Saints)...
So it is today, this church, the church of Jesus Christ is not made up of good people, it's made up of bad people. It's not made up of people who think they're righteous, it's made up of people who know they're not. It's not made up of the people who have attained to a certain acceptable degree with God, it's made up of people who know they could...

The Glory of the Gospel - John MacArthur

Written by
The glory of the gospel is not that God gives salvation to the people who earn it, or He gives salvation to the people who achieve it, or the people who are good enough, or righteous enough, or holy enough, but He gives salvation to the ungodly and the unholy and the unrighteous who believe in Christ and repent. This is the scandal of grace and it...

The Gospel Personal Evangelism by Mark Dever

Written by
“We are called to love others. We share the gospel because we love people. And we don’t share the gospel because we don’t love people. Instead, we wrongly fear them. We don’t want to cause awkwardness. We want their respect, and after all, we figure, if we try to share the gospel with them, we’ll look foolish! And so...

Your Best Life: Now or Later? - John MacArthur

Written by
“This is your best life, if your next life is in hell. But, on the other hand, if you are a child of God and your sins are forgiven and you’ve come to embrace Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, this is not even close to your best life! You can’t even comprehend what your best life looks like because ‘Eye hath not seen...
“Whenever any person comes to saving faith in the Lord, it is because he has been supernaturally drawn to believe.” 
– Steven Lawson 
Foundations of Grace...
“If the natural man has a free will to believe the gospel, then why does he need grace? If his will is naturally free then it would do away with the need for grace altogether…Therefore, to teach that the natural man has a free will overthrows the gospel … it is precisely because man is in bondage to sin that he needs Christ to...
“The true way of salvation can be summed up like this: it is entirely the result of God’s election. There is only one explanation of why any single person has ever been saved, and it is the action and the choice of God. There is nothing in us that contributes to salvation – nothing at al!” 
– D Martyn...
“By taking upon Himself the punishment of our sins demanded by the Law, the Lord Jesus Christ was establishing the Law.” 
- Martyn Lloyd-Jones 
Romans – Atonement And Justification...
The denial of the doctrine of perseverance virtually makes the salvation of man dependent on the human will rather than on the grace of GodThis consideration will, of course, have no effect on those who share the Pelagian conception of salvation as autosoteric — and their numbers are great — but certainly ought to cause those to pause...

In Christ Alone - Sinclair Ferguson

Written by
"When I know that Christ is the one real sacrifice for my sins, that His work on my behalf has been accepted by God, that He is my heavenly Intercessor - then His blood is the antidote to the poison in the voices that echo in my conscience, condemning me for my many failures. Indeed, Christ's shed blood chokes them into silence!"
