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.

Grace Uncommon

Grace Uncommon

Charlie. Thanks for presenting this issue repeatedly, and clearly, especially since there are so few others willing to recognize how important it is.

Hudson, I don't agree with everything the Protestant Reformed Church stands for. But they surely are right when they attack the three points of common grace and the free offer of the Gospel as "semi-Arminian" doctrines. Too many Calvinists these days want to have their cake and eat it, too. If Arminianism and Calvinism are merely a matter of preference, then liberalism is just around the corner. I have studied Arminianism first hand and I can tell you that Arminianism has a completely different worldview than Calvinism. To the degree that neo-Calvinists compromise with Arminianism is the same degree the truth is eroded.

If God is not absolutely sovereign we might as well give up and go home. Thanks for your kind encouragement, Hudson. I've been working long hours lately and have not had as much time as I would like to write and post articles.
