What's Wrong With You People?
In Sunday’s sermon Pastor Eric quoted R.C. Sproul from the video above discussing the severity of the curse on Adam and Eve.
Sproul has had a profound impact on our thinking about God. If you want to get to know him, the books below are a great place to start.
The Holiness of God
”When we understand the character of God, when we grasp something of His holiness, then we begin to understand the radical character of our sin and hopelessness. Helpless sinners can survive only by grace. Our strength is futile in itself; we are spiritually impotent without the assistance of a merciful God. We may dislike giving our attention to God's wrath and justice, but until we incline ourselves to these aspects of God's nature, we will never appreciate what has been wrought for us by grace.”
”I can’t make the Bible come alive for anyone. The Bible is already alive. It makes me come alive.”
Everyone’s a Theologian
”The purpose of theology is not to tickle our intellects but to instruct us in the ways of God, so that we can grow up into maturity and fullness of obedience to Him. That is why we engage in theology.”
