Back to the Basics

I greatly enjoy college football. In general, the fall is my favorite season; family, football, great weather, holidays, lots of extra church meetings, etc. At the end of every football season I look back and assess the highs and lows. The wins and losses. There are teams with high velocity offenses. There are teams with hard physical defenses. I am amazed every year at each teams strategy and how the drama unfolds. I have often asked myself, "what makes a winning team?" There are teams that win through trick plays and flashy performances. But the most consistently winning programs have not been flashy. Most of the winnginest programs have just focused on the basics.

Sufficient for all but efficient for the elect only?
Written by Josh Winslett

The phrase "sufficient for all but efficient for the elect only" is passed around in many christian circles as a bridge between those who believe in a universal atonement and those who believe in a particular atonement. Usually this phrase is meant to qualify Christ's sacrifice as being, in quality, of such a great infinite value and worth, that it is sufficient to potentially atone for all of humanity, but it is only actually and efficiently applied to the elect. Is this statement correct? Is Christ's sacrifice potential AND actual, or is it only potential OR only actual? I contend that the atonement was only actual, and, that it was sufficient and efficient for only those to whom it was intended, God's chosen people. In this brief article, we will discuss the problems with this contradictory statement and the real meaning of the atonement.

Why We Do What We Do

Elder Matt Jordan

From Rocky Mount Newsletter, January 2014.

 

In recent years, our congregation has experienced a renewed desire to reach out in many different ways to the community around us. As their pastor, I say this, not boasting, but in grateful humility. It is indeed a great privilege to try to serve a body of believers who have developed this kind of servant’s heart. These efforts range from various means of communicating God’s word, to sharing prayer requests and church information, to ministering to the poor and needy. More than once over the last couple of years, I’ve been asked about some of these things. Typically, the questions would be along the lines, “why is your church doing all those things” or, “what kind of results have you seen”. These are actually pretty good questions to consider, but perhaps from a different standpoint than the manner in which the questions have been asked. The purpose of this short article is to consider those questions but first, allow me to describe some of these things that I’m talking about.

Hearts Hardened Through Deception of Sin
Written by Admin

"But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin." Hebrews 3:13

 

In this verse, the writer of Hebrews is addressing believers. As he says in verse 1, "Holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling." Did you know that the nature of sin we all possess (1 John 1:9) can deceive you to such an extent that your heart becomes hardened? This is applicable to believers - not the unregenerate. Believers are in danger!

Comments on Matthew 25:31-46
Written by Josh Winslett

There are many contradicting and conflicting views of Matthew 25:31-46 in Christendom. Some believe it to be a parable describing the destruction of Jerusalem in 70AD or some other temporal judgment. Others view this text as describing the end of this physical existence and the general judgment. There are even sub views divided among those who believe in the sovereignty of God in salvation and those who believe in a works based salvation. In this short article, I would like to discuss a few of these views.
