Letters With June in Sight

And Now For a Controversial Opinion When we examine these two NT passages: 1 Peter 3:7 (the weaker vessel) and 1 Timothy 2:14 (Eve was deceived), do you believe the Bible is teaching that women, as a general rule, are more susceptible to deception? Or is something else in view in these two texts? Joe Joe, I believe that Scripture teaches that women are more susceptible to deception. Men are more susceptible to overt rebellion. Internal Temptation On “Is All Temptation Internal?”: As a Christian who has experienced the miracle of deliverance from a demon, I have a personal anecdote that ti ..read more

Braided Blonde Theology

1d ago
“Some people want to say that this administration of grace is tightly woven in with a covenant of works, like a Scandinavian shield-maiden’s blonde braids, sheer law woven together with free grace, and there you go. What’s so hard to understand about that? And, then, to crown all these discussions, the people who want to intertwine these two covenants, one of grace and the other of works, want to accuse me of coming up with some kind of mutant golawspel. Heh. And, as Paul might say, were he here, again I say heh.” The Auburn Avenue Chronicles Vol. 2, p. 742. The post Braided Blonde Theolog ..read more

A Federal Vision Late Entry

Introduction I am happy to announce an impending rapprochement on Federal Vision issues, albeit a rapprochement that is still surrounded with a few remaining confusions. I trust that I will be able to remove those confusions below. Wish me luck, everybody. In a class for RTS Charlotte, Kevin De Young spent some time on Federal Vision issues in the clip embedded below. He says: “If you’re in the PCA and you’re seeking ordination, I would recommend if on the floor of the presbytery someone asks, “What do you think about Federal Vision?” say, “I do not agree with Federal Vision” and then explain ..read more

To Glorify Christ

Pentecost Sunday 2024 Introduction The Holy Spirit has been active in the world since the creation of the world. He appears in the second verse of the Bible, for example, hovering over the face of the waters (Gen. 1:2). In every era, God is always God. The Son of God is always the visible image of the invisible Father, and the Spirit is always the one who empowers and equips. Nevertheless, we do see a difference between the Old Testament and the New in this regard. The Spirit has always been the one ministering forgiveness, and cleansing, and power. This has always been his work. But in the Ol ..read more

“The Westminster Confession says that the administration under Moses was gracious, and that it was [an] administration of the covenant of grace. So I take this (since me and the Westminster divines, we’re like that), wrap it around my neck, and go walking down the road like a two-year-old with his chin up and his chest out.” The Auburn Avenue Chronicles Vol. 2, pp. 741-742 The post Walking Just LIke That appeared first on Blog & Mablog ..read more

“ ‘These good works, done in obedience to God’s commandments, are the fruits and evidences of a true and lively faith . . .’ (WCF 16.2). Notice here that good works are the ‘fruits and evidences’ of a ‘true and lively’ faith. Liveliness in faith is not the evidence, but rather is something that needs to be evidenced. Put another way, those who separate liveliness from the essence of saving life, or who in any way make that life merely evidence, are out of accord with the Confession.” The Auburn Avenue Chronicles Vol. 2, p. 731.

Is All Temptation Internal?
Douglas Wilson

5d ago
Steven Wedgeworth was kind enough to respond to my recent post on concupiscence, doing so here. As was true when I read his chapter in Ruined Sinners to Reclaim, I agreed with a lot of this response also. Two places where I would still differ. I don’t think that my (possible) difference with John Owen puts me on the side of Ed Shaw, or anyone in that neck of the woods. Same sex orientation is sinful in its essence, in a way that hunger is not. And if Jesus experienced temptation internally (in some respect), it would be a completely different kind of experience from that of someone who has be ..read more
