  • Defining Our Relationship (Protestant/Evangelical Caucus & Devotional)

    Ligonier ^ | 5/26/2017
    At the heart of Christianity is the doctrine of the mystical union of the believer with Christ. The New Testament does not only call us to believe in Christ, but to believe into Christ. Faith links us directly into Christ. We become in Him and He in us. This mysterious union is carried over into the relationship between Christ and the church. The church is His bride, whom He has brought into a real, profound, and powerful union. We normally assume that the image of the church as the bride of Christ is a metaphor borrowed from the institution of...

  • Growing into Conformity (Evangelical & Protestant Caucus/Devotional)

    Ligonier ^ | 5/25/2017
    Growing into Conformity The modern distinction between the “carnal Christian” and the “Spirit-filled Christian” is a dangerous one. If a carnal Christian is described as one whose fallen nature has not yet been changed by grace, it is a contradiction in terms. If a person is carnal in the sense that the Holy Spirit resides in him without affecting his constituent nature in any way, then he is simply not a Christian. To view regeneration as not effecting any real change in the person is a serious distortion of regeneration. Here the Holy Spirit indwells but does nothing to effect...

    As Christians, we are new creations. Our hearts of stone have been turned into hearts of flesh. In this metaphor, flesh is used as a positive figure, not a pejorative one. Where once my heart was cold and recalcitrant, dead and inert to the things of God, now it throbs and pulsates with spiritual life. Once I was biologically alive but spiritually dead. Now I am biologically alive and spiritually alive as well. I am a new person. There is radical discontinuity between my new self and my old self. This radical discontinuity, however, is not total discontinuity. A link...

    The story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde could be an allegory for the Christian life. There is a war in our members, a constant conflict between the old and the new, between vice and virtue, sin and obedience. We seem to be moral schizoids. It is a struggle between what the Bible calls the “old man” and the “new man.” Whenever I hear an evangelist declare, “Come to Jesus and all your problems will be over,” I cringe because I am hearing false advertising. I cringe because this promise conflicts with my experience and my spiritual pilgrimage. In one...

    I am copying a Freepmail I got from another person for Farmer Dean. Farmer Dean, an all around good and likable guy, is starting chemo and more radiation for colon cancer today. I asked him if he wanted us to pray for him and he was very thankful and said yes. It is beautiful when Christians realize that prayers from other Christians, regardless of denomination, is a powerful thing. My mom’s been going to Mass for him and he has been so very grateful. Just a good guy whom I pray beats this through and through.

    Evangelical Christians love America. Some see in her the last hope of creating a Christian nation. But it is not a Christian nation. It is pagan to the core. It is in danger of becoming, if it is not already, the new “Evil Empire.” The Mayflower Compact is a museum piece, a relic of a forgotten era. “In God We Trust” is now a lie. Yes, we must always work for social reform. Yes, we must be “profane” in Martin Luther’s sense of going out of the temple and into the world. We do not despise the country of our...
