"I may indeed believe the same things which Luther or Calvin believed: but I do not believe them on the authority of Luther or Calvin, but upon the sole authority of Jesus Christ, and therefore I should not call myself by their name, as one of their disciples, but by the name of Christ, whom alone I acknowledge as the Author of my religion, and my only Master and Lord."
...Samuel Davies

"Justification is an instantaneous legal act of God in which he (1) thinks of our sins as forgiven and Christ’s righteousness as belonging to us, and (2) declares us to be righteous in his sight."

Charles H. Spurgeon

If you wear the livery of Christ, you will find him so meek and lowly of heart that you will find rest unto your souls. He is the most magnanimous of captains. There never was his like the choicest of princes. He is always to be found in the thickest part of the battle. When the wind blows cold he always takes the bleak side of the hill. The heaviest end of the cross lies ever on his shoulders. If he bids us carry a burden, he carries it also. If there is anything that is gracious, generous, kind, and tender, yea lavish and superabundant in love, you always find it in him. His service is life, peace, and joy. Oh, that you would enter on it at once! God help you to enlist under the banner of JESUS CHRIST!

Salvation & Eternal Life


No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day.-- John 6:44 (ESV)

And he said, "This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father."-- John 6:65 (ESV)

So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy.-- Romans 9:16 (ESV)

because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
For the Scripture says, "Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame."
For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him.
For "everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." -- Romans 10:9-13 (ESV)

Something to consider...
... that the OT psalms are pretty much in the exact same style as pagan Canaanite poetry.
For instance, consider Psalm 92:9.
   For, behold, Your enemies, O LORD,
   For, behold, Your enemies will perish;
   All who do iniquity will be scattered.

Now consider this line from a much-earlier Ugaritic poem to Baal:
   Behold, thine enemies, O Baal,
   Behold, thine enemies shalt thou crush,
   Behold, thou shalt crush thy foes!

Similar? In form, yes, very. In content? A world of difference between Baal and Yahweh.
...Weigh in as you see fit.       Dan Phillips
