God's sovereignty is not another name for "raw power." It's God turning even evil to good in the gospel. IOW God's sovereignty is cruciform.
Ebionite hermeneutic: The prophets didn't know the gospel
Nestorian: They didn't but we can retro-fit it
Cyriline: They knew&preached Christ
"Jesus called God his own Father making himself equal to God" John5:17
What doctrine of God did the Pharisees have? It sure wasn't Unitarian
How do people change?
1Corinthians 1: the preaching of the cross
2: the Spirit
3: becoming a fool in the world
"Christ alone" means HE is our picture of God,
HE is our only hope for this world,
HE is our only justification before God,
HE is life.
Picture "faith in action."
Did you picture what Calvin pictured? pic.twitter.com/GTt6v1tPcP

Saw a YouTube video called "Debate: Is Jesus God?" and yelled at the screen: Oh for goodness sakes, if He's not, no one is!
There is only one God. And this God is tripersonal. Only one divine being. And this being is the Father begetting His Son in the Spirit.
Some evangelism says: "Following Jesus is hard. Can you do it?" Better evangelism says: "Finding Jesus is life. How could you not?"
Want me to pray? Tell me about my Father.
Want me to trust? Tell me about the Son.
Want me to love? Tell me about the Spirit.
You don’t have a Jesus-shaped hole in your world. You have a Jesus-shaped world.
I'm not a religious consumer who favours the Christianity brand. I'm more like the woman, dead against marriage, who meets Mr Right.
I don't believe in the institution, I believe in HIM. HE has converted me.
On a kids worship CD: "Lord, if we could, we'd fill our hands with all u've given us, and give it all back." DREADFUL way to treat a Giver!
Speaking on the problem of evil this lunchtime. One of the best reasons to become a Christian is so you can finally have a problem with evil
Handling faith questions: 4 Rs
1. Relate how u personally wrestle with it;
2. Reflect back the Q cos they have a version they must answer;
3. Reframe the issue using biblical categories and definitions;
4. Retell the gospel using these broader biblical categories.
The law is not a ladder, it's a spotlight. The gospel is the rescue.
With the help of David Mitchell, this lunchtime I'll address the question "How can a just God forgive evil people?" pic.twitter.com/6olaltm0pT

David says "Most High, King, Unfailing Love".
Nicea says "Father, Son, Holy Spirit."
Same thing. pic.twitter.com/Sm6mjVGxst

Jesus does not hit “Snooze” on your sins, to revisit them later. He’s hit “Dismiss”, once and for all. #EnjoyYourDay
