There is no enemy the Christian faces that is more deadly than their own sinful flesh. It is the most dangerous and has the greatest potential to destroy. This enemy must be fought at all costs. It stands and mocks our Savior.
This is a fantastic video from John Piper. This is just what I need heading into a full week (Especially Easter week) becasue it points me to Christ and all I have in Him. Please enjoy!
The “P” in TULIP is one of the most comforting truths in all of Scripture. Within it we find the peace that comes from God holding onto us even when we fall. It’s the culmination of Calvinism and the security of the Gospel.
The 5 points of Calvin begin with Total Depravity. In fact, this point defines the others. Because of Total Depravity, the other 4 points are true. This doctrine, although very dark, causes the light to shine the brightest.
