Solus Christus: The Erosion of Christ-Centered Faith

As evangelical faith becomes secularized, its interests have been blurred with those of the culture. The result is a loss of absolute values, permissive individualism, and a substitution of wholeness for holiness, recovery for repentance, intuition for truth, feeling for belief, chance for providence, and immediate gratification for enduring hope. Christ and his cross hav...

Sola Scriptura: The Erosion of Authority

Scripture alone is the inerrant rule of the church’s life, but the evangelical church today has separated Scripture from its authoritative function. In practice, the church is guided, far too often, by the culture....

Justification and Sanctification Distinguished

Last week we saw how justification and sanctification agree. Today we will see how they differ. Justification is the reckoning of a man to be righteous on the merit of Jesus Christ. Sanctification is the actual making a man inwardly righteous, though it may be in a feeble degree. The righteousness we have by our justification is not our own, but the everlasting perfect...

He Can Justify You

God, the infinitely just Sovereign, knows that there is not a just man upon earth that does good and never sins. Therefore, in the infinite sovereignty of His divine nature and in the splendor of His ineffable love, He undertakes the task of justifying the ungodly. God has devised ways and means of making the ungodly man to stand justly accepted before Him: He has set up ...

Justification and Sanctification Compared

This subject is one of great importance, though I fear it will not seem so to all my readers. Too many are apt to look at nothing but the surface of things in religion. They regard distinctions in theology as questions which are of little real value. But I warn all who are in earnest about their souls, that the discomfort which arises from not distinguishing things that d...

Justification is a legal term.  It belongs to the realm of the law court.   It means ‘to declare just,’ and ‘to declare righteous.’ It is the opposite of condemnation. The Christian has moved from a state of condemnation to one of justification. It is the action of God and exclusi...

A Wondrous Stretch of Love

If you desire to see the love of God in this great procedure you must consider how he gave his Son. He did not give his Son, as you might do, to some profession in the pursuit of which you might still enjoy his company; but he gave his Son to exile among men. He sent him down to yonder manger, united with a perfect manhood, which at the first was in an infant’s form....

The Deity of Christ and the Limits of Fellowship

The question has sometimes been proposed to me: “How it is that those of us who hold the deity of Christ manifest what is called uncharitableness towards those who deny him?”...

The Value of Studying the Psalms

I want to mention the very remarkable honesty with which the psalmists do not hesitate to tell the truth about themselves. We have a classic example in Psalm 73. This man admits freely that his feet were almost gone, his steps had well-nigh slipped......

An Introduction to Baptism

1. Our Position on Baptism Truth Community practices believer’s baptism. All Christians should be baptized after they repent of their sins and believe in Christ for salvation. Scripture teaches that Christ commanded baptism for His repentant disciples (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:38). We baptize in response to His command as did the early church (Acts 2:41, 8:36-38). ...
