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.

Lordship Salvation According to Dr. Gordon H. Clark


Anonymous said...

Well, how would you consider an earthly judge who PREDETERMINES many inhabitants of his town to commit crimes and put them to death for that?

Isn't God supposed to be perfect?

Or do I have such thoughts because I'm not one of the elects?

I would say that nothing God does is wrong. And how stupid would it be for you to accuse God? Do you really think you have the authority to judge Him? I thought God judges you, not the other way around? Shall the pot accuse the potter of injustice?

God answers to no one. And your finite god has no power to overcome evil. So tell me how free will answers that problem? Are you a dualist who thinks good and evil are equal forces in the universe?

A sovereign God must be in control of evil or else evil is more powerful than God. (Isaiah 45:7; Amos 3:6; Acts 2:23, 4:27-28). Nothing happens by chance with God. (Proverbs 16:33).

Romans 3:4-8; 9:11-22

1 Thessalonians 2:11-13 clearly teaches that God does curse the reprobate with a spirit of delusion and that He grants the elect saving faith. He is not obligated to you but you are obligated to him.

2 Thessalonians 2:11-13, I meant.

Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it? (Amos 3:6 KJV)

@ lotharlorraine,

you have compared the real God to an "earthly judge", a human being, a mere man, which God regards as nothing. That's your problem. First off, God has created and owns more than a "town", and secondly, God creates evil and uses it how He likes for His Own glory, as Charlie has shown above.

God IS perfect, and you have no idea what that means.

Yes, you probably have such thoughts and wicked accusations against God because you are not regenerated, but this doesn't mean you aren't elect; just that you are blind still.

That's correct, Roberto.... Thanks for commenting...

I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. (Isaiah 45:7 KJV)
