  • He was Oppressed and Afflicted...servant songs pt 15

    He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth....
  • The Servant Of The LORD...servant songs pt 1

    Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens,...

  • Why Satisfaction Theory Is So Satisfying (Even Though It’s Wrong)

    Patheos: Good and Truth ^ | March 30, 2015 | Rev Coleman Glenn
    On His “Glory to God for All Things” blog last week, Orthodox priest Fr. Stephen Freeman posted on the Orthodox perspective on Jesus’ atonement in contrast to the theory of penal substitution (penal substitution is the theory that Jesus died instead of you to take on the punishment due to you from God for your sins). Fr. Stephen argues that even the passages that seem to directly imply “penal substitution” atonement, or at least some form of “satisfaction theory” (i.e. Jesus died as a substitution in place of us to satisfy some demand of God), actually do not inherently suggest...

    Gospel Truth ^ | Unknown | Jonathan Edwards
    IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS, ACCORDING TO THE RICHES OF HIS GRACE.--Ephesians 1:11. THE doctrine of the forgiveness of sins is a capital doctrine of the gospel, and is much insisted on by the writers of the New Testament; above all, by the author of this epistle. In our text he asserts that we are forgiven according to the riches of grace; not merely in the exercise of grace, as the very term forgiveness implies; but in the exercise of the riches of grace; importing that forgiveness is an act of the most...

    Well, we had 9 degrees this morning, but warming up to 32 degrees later today. Everyone be safe out there on this Sabbath day, and take time to warm your souls and feed your spirits by remembering and worshiping God in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ, this day. Drink of the living water. John 4:14 "But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life."

  • Someone Always Has to Pay...Genesis 4 pt 4

    But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.(Genesis 4:5-8)Cain offered...

    In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother. For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another, not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother’s righteous.( I John 2:10-12)Cain and Abel were brothers. Both of them were strict Monotheistic worshippers also. But that is where the similarity ended. Abel...
  • Calvary or Gethsemane? The Atonement According to Mormonism

    04/05/2012 1:18:43 PM PDT · by Colofornian · 51 replies
    Each spring millions of Christians celebrate the death and resurrection of their Lord. In light of the fact that this is one of the most important events within the Christian tradition, it is important for us to examine and understand the spiritual significance of Christ's sacrifice in light of the teachings of past LDS leaders. Philippians 2:7 tells us that Christ made Himself of no reputation and took "the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men." Hebrews 2:17 tells us this was done in order that He might make "reconciliation for the sins of the...
  • Jesus, Our Propitiation...(Substitution)

    04/14/2011 2:02:27 PM PDT · by pastorbillrandles
    … we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world. (I John 2:1-2)In my previous article, I mentioned that certain evangelicals are currently denying the very heart of the christian gospel, that is, the death of Jesus as our substitute in judgment. The only gospel I have ever known is that Jesus died in our place to pay the price for our sin. On the cross he bore the full penalty under the law of God, and suffered...

    For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:( I Peter 3:18)Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; (1 Timothy 4:1)We are warned in more than one place, that the last days would be accompanied by a defection from the faith delivered “once and for all” to the church by the apostles. It is impossible to defect from that...

    The Ordinary Pastor ^ | 02/06/2011 | Erik Raymond
    (Lev 16.31-32) It is a Sabbath of solemn rest to you, and you shall afflict yourselves; it is a statute forever. 32 And the priest who is anointed and be consecrated as priest in his father’s place shall make atonement, wearing the holy linen garments. This is the famous Day of Atonement passage. In Leviticus 16 God communicates to the Nation of Israel how they would have their sin dealt with. This annual event was to deal with their uncleanness due to their sin. Embedded in the pronouncement of cleansing (Lev.16.30) is this reminder of repetition. The feast will be...
  • The Atonement Makes Repentance Possible (Real LDS/Mormon)

    The Atonement Makes Repentance Possible   "The Atonement Makes Repentance Possible", Ensign, Feb. 2011, 10–11    We come to earth for the purpose of growing and progressing. We are slowed in our progress when we sin. Except for Jesus Christ, who lived a perfect life, everyone who has lived upon the earth has sinned (see Ecclesiastes 7:20; Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:8).To sin is to break God’s commandments. Sometimes we sin by doing something we know is wrong, but sometimes we sin by failing to do what we know is right (see James 4:17).Every commandment from God blesses us if we obey it (see...

    For those not fully confident that salvation is free and we must live "sin free", please define "sin" for me in such a way as we may then make a full list of sins of commission and omission and live my life accordingly. You will bog down in a sea of ambiguity. For example ,"Thou shalt not kill" .Does this apply in self defense? War? Accident?Thou shalt not bear false witness? How many lies do you tell each day? "I'm fine, thank you " when your not. "I'll get right on it!" (when you won't). How about stealing? Oh,well ,you...
