Phil Johnson on Heresies

September 30, 2009

phil johnson Heard any new heresies lately? I doubt it.

Quote:

“It’s important for Christians to have a grasp of heresies that the church has battled over the centuries, because they often return with new clothing, and the unprepared Christian is likely to fall into these old pits. Phil does an excellent job of looking at some of the major heresies that are revisiting the church today: Socinianism, Arianism, Pelagianism, Gnosticism, and Judaizing. This is an excellent 6 part series that will shore up some weak points in the church today.”

The series is available at the GraceLife Pulpit web site or you can download each MP3 individually below.

  2. The Gnostics
  3. The Arians, #1
  4. The Arians, #2

Do Something

March 9, 2009

The Letter of James 1: 22-25

But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was. But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does.

C.H. Spurgeon, extract from Lectures to My Students

Brethren, do something; do something; do something: While committees waste their time over resolutions, do something. While Societies and Unions are making constitutions, le us win souls. Too often we discuss, and discuss, and discuss, and Satan laughs in his sleeve. It is time we had done planning and sought something to plan. I pray you, be men of action all of you. Get to work and quit yourselves like men. Old Suvarov’s idea of war is mine: “Forward and strike! No theory! Attack!  Form column! Charge bayonets! Plunge into the centre of the enemy.” Our one aim is to save sinners, and this we are not to talk about but to do in the power of God.

Horatius Bonar, extract from Follow the Lamb

You were neither born nor reborn for yourselves alone. You may not be able to do much, but do something; work while it is day. You may not be able to give much, but give something; according to your ability, remembering that the Lord loves a cheerful giver.

Take heed, and beware of covetousness; for the love of money is the root of all evil. Whenever worldliness comes in, in any shape, whether it be love of money or love of pleasure, you cease to be faithful to Christ, and are trying to serve both God and mammon.

Do something, then, for God, while time lasts. It may not be long; for the day goes away, and the shadows of evening are stretched out. Do something every day. Work, and throw your heart into the work. Work joyfully and with a right good will, as men who love both their work and their master. Be not weary in well-doing. Work, and work in faith. Work in love, and patience, and hope.

Don’t shrink from hard labor or disagreeable duties, or a post trying to flesh and blood. ‘Endure hardness, as a good soldier in Jesus Christ’ (2 Tim 2:3). Be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord (1 Cor 15:58). Don’t fold your hands, or lay aside your staff, or sheathe your sword. Don’t give way to slothfulness and flesh-pleasing, saying to yourselves, ‘I can get to heaven without working.’

Your gifts may be small, your time not much, your opportunities few; but work, and do it quietly, without bustle, or self-importance, not as pleasing men, but God; not seeking the honor that cometh from men, but that which cometh from God.

The day of honor is coming, and the Master’s ‘Well done’ will make up for all hardship and labor here. When the Son of man shall come in His glory, with all His holy angels, and when He shall sit upon the throne of His glory, it will be blessed to be set upon His right hand, and acknowledged as those who have fed Him, and clothed and visited Him in prison; and it would be a bitter thing, indeed, to be ‘saved so as by fire,’ namely: barely saved, and no more; saved (if such a thing can be thought of) without doing anything for Him that saved us; having given Him no water when He was thirsty, no food when He was hungry, no clothes when He was naked, and when in prison having never once come nigh Him.
