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.

Paul Washer Teaches Justification by Faith Plus Works

Paul Washer teaches justification by faith plus works.

[The comments below are taken from Monty Collier's page at YouTube.  Collier is an advocate of propositional truth and follows the theology and apologetics of Gordon H. Clark.  The deceitfulness of works as the basis of assurance means that the Christian can have no assurance of salvation whatsoever since no amount of good works could ever pay the debt we owe for our sins.  Only Christ has fully obeyed the law of God and only a divine man could possibly fulfill the law and pay the debt of our eternal punishment.  He lived a sinless life and died on the cross to redeem God's chosen people, elect from before the foundation of the world.  --Charlie--].

The devil never tires of trying to introduce salvation by works into the minds of Bible believing Christians.

Consider Paul Washers popular sermon nicknamed, "The Shocking Youth Message." It is shocking, but only because Washer claims to believe in Justification By Faith Alone, then proceeds to teach justification by faith and works.

Read Horatius Bonar's excellent work on the doctrine of assurance by clicking this link:

Particular Baptist John Bunyan taught that our assurance was based only on the Gospel and the promises of God annexed to it. John Bunyan wrote the following:

"Now, I say, he "hath peace through the blood of His cross," and sees himself reconciled to God by the death of His Son; (Col. i. 20, 21;) or else his comfort will be questioned by him. It is not every promise that cometh now upon his heart, that will serve his turn; no, but he must see whether Jesus be presented to the soul in and through that promise; now if hope leap, as I may so say, it is because the Lord's promise sounds aloud in his heart, coming to him big with the love and pardoning grace of God in Jesus Christ. This, I say, is the first and principle joy that the soul hath, that is quickened and brought into the covenant of grace."

(Doctrine Of Law And Grace Unfolded, chapter 9, page 158)
