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.

John Calvin Rejects the Doctrine of the Free Offer of the Gospel

While God foresees that this will be the result, he purposely sends his prophets to them, that he may involve the reprobate in severer condemnation, as is more fully explained by Isaiah, (Isaiah 6:10).  -- John Calvin

It is clear from both God's eternal decrees and from the revelation in Holy Scripture that God does NOT desire to save all who hear the Gospel, much less all men in the world.  The dialectical theology of the followers of Cornelius Van Til, including Westminster Seminary, Philadelphia and Westminster Seminary, California, is to be rejected.  All Scripture is in logical agreement.  Van Til, on the other hand, said that all Scripture is apparently contradictory.  (Isaiah 6:10).
