About God

Volume 39

October 2016

Number 10

Beloved:

A.W. Tozer HAD IT RIGHT when he said years ago: “What comes into our minds when we think ABOUT GOD is the MOST IMPORTANT thing ABOUT US.”

John MacArthur HAS IT RIGHT when he states: “If we’re not ACCURATELY Proclaiming THE GOD OF SCRIPTURE, then EVERYTHING else we say is utterly IN VAIN.”

R. Albert Mohler, President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky HAS IT RIGHT when he states: “The ANEMIC view of God held by MANY Church Members is EVIDENT in doctrinal confusion, corrupted worship, compromised evangelism and SPIRITUAL deadness.”

Steven J. Lawson, Pastor of Christ Fellowship Baptist Church in Mobile, Alabama HAS IT RIGHT when he writes: “I believe that what is needed these days more than anything else is a HEAVEN-SENT REVIVAL of the TRUE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD.”  Lawson goes on to say: “To think of God in any way OTHER THAN how HE has disclosed Himself in THE FULL COUNSEL OF SCRIPTURE is to be GUILTY of the Sin of IDOLATRY.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon HAD IT RIGHT when he said: “IDOLATRY is the GREATEST INSULT the Creature can offer the CREATOR.”

Arthur W. Pink HAD IT RIGHT when he wrote: “Divine Sovereignty simply means that GOD IS GOD.”

J.I. Packer HAS IT RIGHT when he writes: “God’s Wrath is His Righteousness REACTING against unrighteousness.”

Martin Luther HAD IT RIGHT when he wrote: “God does not love us because we are valuable, but we are VALUABLE because GOD LOVES US.”

R. Bruce Bickel HAS IT RIGHT when he states: “The Basis of EVANGELISM in PURITAN PREACHING was a VIGOROUS BIBLICAL THEISM. The Puritans made NO ASSUMPTION that people knew the God of John 3:16. Thus, their evangelism began with the PROCLAMATION of THE DOCTRINE OF GOD.”

Jonathan Edwards HAD IT RIGHT when he wrote: “ABSOLUTE SOVEREIGNTY is what I love to ascribe to God. It has often been my delight to approach God, and ADORE HIM as a SOVEREIGN GOD.”

Beloved, we are living in a Day of BIG MAN and small god. Years ago, J.B. Phillips wrote a book he entitled: "YOUR GOD IS TOO SMALL." I am fearful that the TITLE of Phillips’ book is the SAD STORY OF TODAY’S CHURCH.

Thank YOU dear ones for YOUR HELP. I love YOU dearly in our Wonderful SOVEREIGN LORD. Now a Word from HIS WORD: “But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased” -- Psalm 115:3 (KJV).
