What Used to Be Called Sin ~ by Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Source: http://www.donotbesurprised.com/2015/05/what-used-to-be-called-sin.html?m=1

——————–

All talk about sin, say the self-expressionists, is utterly foolish, leading to self-repression, which is, they aver, the only sin. What used to be called sin is just expression of self, the greatest and the most vital possession that man has, they say. Not to sin, according to the old meaning of the term, is to do violence to the greatest gift he possesses. They plead, therefore, for the abolition of the word sin in its earlier associations. They deplore what they term the tragic spectacle of mankind shackled against its highest good by adherence to the warnings of the Bible, the Church, and the saints.

We can best consider this human view of life, and show its complete fallacy, by contrasting it with God’s view as stated in the Bible. The teachings of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, are outspoken against sin. He said, “Wherefore if they hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire” (Matthew 18:8-9).

Now there we are reminded of the way in which every conceivable view of life and of men is invariably dealt with somewhere or another in the Scriptures. Modern man is constantly flattering himself and suggesting to himself that certain of his ideas are quite new. But here again we find an illustration of a view that prides itself on its modernity dealt with completely and exhaustively in the Bible.

“God” tells NAR “prophet” about Dominionist Seven Mountains plans

Originally posted on My Word Like Fire:

The New Apostolic Reformation is not an organization. These are networks of “apostles” and “prophets” who believe the Second Apostolic Age is here. This means the age of denominations has passed and it is these “anointed” apostles and prophets who are to govern the church.

From the NAR we have such luminaries as C. Peter Jacobs, James Goll, Mike Bickle, Bill Johnson, Mark Chironna, Brian Simmons, Cindy Jacobs, and many others.

These people are Dominionists–they believe Christ cannot or will not come back until Christians have taken control of the earth.

Cindy Jacobs actually told a rapt congregation that the Lord’s Prayer is really about Dominionism. [1]

NAR adherents believe gaining societal control for Christ means dominating the Seven Mountains (spheres) of Culture.

Now, just as “God” showed Cindy Jacobs the Lord’s Prayer is about Dominionism, Lana Vawser, another false prophet, is claiming God told her this:

“Suddenly I heard the words ‘Seven mountains of culture’

If I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible that main cause of the ruinous revolution that swallowed up some 60 million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: ‘Men had forgotten God; that is why all this has happened.’

An ineffably holy God, who has the utmost abhorrence of sin, was never invented by any of Adam’s descendents.

God likes a little humor, as is evidence by the fact that he made the monkeys, the parrot — and some of you people.

What is Satan ‘s “gospel”? (A.W. Pink)

“As Christ has a Gospel, Satan has a gospel too; the latter being a clever counterfeit of the former. So closely does the gospel of Satan resemble that which it parades, multitudes of the unsaved are deceived by it.”

The Christian and the Law: An Important Glance at Paul’s Argument in Romans 6 & 7

Originally posted on The Protestant Pulpit:

Introduction

There are two hypothetical objections that Paul answers. What is first found in 6:15? See 6:15-23. What is the second found in 7:1? See 7:1-6. Why are these important questions to Paul’s idea of salvation by grace alone? Why is it important for us?

It is worth noting that both hypothetical objections relate to 6:14. He says there that sin shall not rule over us, because we are not under law, but under grace. Then he asks in 6:15, “Shall we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace?” Interestingly, as Paul’s practice is, he takes up the last first in 15-23 and then in 7:1-6, he reassumes the first subject — freedom from the law.  In verse 6:15, Paul asks whether we should continue in sin, seeing that we are free from the Law. In verse 7:1, speaking to those who know the Law, Paul rhetorically…
