John Colquhoun Quote

"No sooner is this atonement actually imputed to them than they are legally absolved from condemnation...They are then delivered from the guilt of sin, or from their obligation to endure punishment on account of sin, and have sufficient security afforded them that though they may often incur the guilt of fatherly displeasure, they shall never enter into condemnation, or fall under the guilt of eternal wrath" (Colquhoun, Sermons on Important Doctrines Pg. 221).

The lack of visible sin is not necessarily a sign that one is sanctified. But it can be and it ought to be. Furthermore, visible sin is not a necessary mark that one is unregenerate. This is seen in that the moralist is moral and the Christian sinful. There is this difference, however: the Christian is sanctified while the moralist is not. Consequently, the worst Christian is better than the best moralist.

The Sovereignty of God

You have heard it said that where there is a will there is a way. But where there is a will and a way there is God also.

Theologians and Ministers

All theologians are ministers. And all ministers are theologians. This is true because to truly know theology is to apply theology. Some do this better than others. And some even attempt ministry without theology. But to what end it cannot be known.

My Greatest Fear

It has been said that "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself". But I fear nothing in the world but sin. It is my greatest fear and my worst enemy.
I am comforted, however, in this truth: My Greatest hope is God; and my most faithful friend is Christ.

Augustine Quote

"With what mercy you have shown humanity the way of humility in that your 'Word was made flesh and dwelt among' men (Jn. 1:14)....For you have hidden these things from the wise and revealed them to babes, that toiling and burdened they should come to him to be restored....But those who, like actors, wear the high boots of a supposedly more sublime teaching do not hear him who says 'Learn of me, that I am meek and humble in heart, and you shall find rest for your souls' (Matt. 11:29). Even if they know 'God, they do not glorify him as God or give thanks, but are lost in their own thought and their foolish heart is obscured; professing themselves wise, they have become fools'(Rom. 1: 21-3)" (Augustine Confessions 121,122).
