The Holiness of God

Holiness of God CoverStatus: Available

Book Description

Central to God’s character is the quality of holiness. Yet, even so, most people are hard-pressed to define what God’s holiness precisely is. Many preachers today avoid the topic altogether because people today don’t quite know what to do with words like “awe” or “fear.” R. C. Sproul, in this classic work, puts the holiness of God in its proper and central place in the Christian life. He paints an awe-inspiring vision of God that encourages Christian to become holy just as God is holy. Once you encounter the holiness of God, your life will never be the same.

Getting the Gospel Right: The Tie that Binds Evangelicals Together

Getting the Gospel Right CoverStatus: Available

Book Description

Christian unity is important. And unity in the gospel is essential. Yet that unity was tested by the release of two documents, Evangelicals and Catholics Together and The Gift of Salvation, which appeared to surrender the historic doctrine of sola fide (faith alone). Then a new level of unity was achieved with the release of a statement called The Gospel of Jesus Christ: An Evangelical Celebration.

This sequel to Sproul’s popular Faith Alone contains the complete text of The Gospel of Jesus Christ along with thorough, point-by-point discussion and exposition. The significance of this affirmation is summed up by Christianity Today: “A number of people have been stunned by the broad acceptance of this statement.” It has been signed by “Methodist and Presbyterian, Pentecostal and cessationist, Baptist, Lutheran, Anglican, and free church” leaders.

As Sproul explains, unity in the gospel touches the soul of the church itself and all of its members. “To be faithful to the Great Commission,” writes Sproul, “we must get the gospel right.”

Furnishings Concluded; Oil and Incense; Artisans (Exodus 30:17-31:11)

Chuck CainOn Sunday, August 9, 2015, the Adult Sunday School Class reviewed Exodus 30:17 through 31:11.

Exodus 30:17-21 describes the last of the seven items of furniture in the tabernacle. The bronze basin was used for the washing of the hands and the feet of the priests. For us it speaks of the need for daily cleansing through confession and the washing afforded us through the word.

Exodus 30:22-38 provides the formulas for preparing the anointing oil and the incense.

In Exodus 31:1-11 God identifies the two principal artisans who are to craft the tabernacle, its furnishings, the priests’ garments, and other items.—Chuck Cain

Old Testament Eschatology (Genesis 2; Revelation 2)

Mr. Robert Mossotti

Mr. Robert Mossotti

On Sunday, August 2, 2015, Mr. Robert Mossotti taught about Old Testament Eschatology in the Adult Sunday School Class. His texts were Genesis 2 and Revelation 2.

What is “eschatology?” When did mankind first have an eschatology? Was it when the prophets spoke of a coming Suffering Servant, or the Day of the Lord? Or was it when the promise was given of the arrival of David’s greater son, or even all the way back when our first parents received the promise of the Seed of the Woman just after the Fall?

Welcome to a Kingdom (1 Peter 3:1-7)

Mr. Robert Mossotti, OPC Licentiate

Mr. Robert Mossotti, OPC Licentiate

On Sunday, August 2, 2015, Mr. Robert Mossotti preached “Welcome to a Kingdom” from 1 Peter 3:1-7.

Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, when they see your respectful and pure conduct. Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear—but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands, as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. And you are her children, if you do good and do not fear anything that is frightening. Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered. (1 Peter 3:1-7 ESV)
