Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Podcasts on the New Perspective on Paul and the Federal Vision

I have discovered a wealth of podcasts which are downloadable over at the Monergism website. The section on the New Perspective on Paul are especially good and well worth your time if you want to understand what all the controversy is about regarding the Federal Vision heresy in the Presbyterian Church in America and the New Perspectives on Paul movement within Evangelical theological circles. I found the lectures by Guy Prentiss Waters especially helpful. In the question and answer section at the end of his lecture on the Federal Vision, Waters says that the Federal Vision view opens the door for reformed believers to be converted to high church Anglo-Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Roman Catholicism. This is similar to the problem presented by Billy Graham, Charles Colson and others who are pushing for the acceptance of Roman Catholics and the Eastern Orthodox as "fellow Christians" rather than merely members of apostate visible churches and therefore in need of conversion to Christ and to the true Gospel.

May the peace of God be with you.
