Grace in Christianity - Wikipedia

Do I elevate the words of Paul over the words of Christ? No! and yes! Christ is Lord over all, is God incarnate, and is my Savior on a personal level. But the words of Paul, just like the words of Moses, are the words of Christ to me, a Gentile in the Age of Grace. Paul received them by revelation from the resurrected, ascended Christ in person, and Paul was commissioned by Him to make sure that I heard them twenty centuries later. Would a Jew in Moses’ day receive God’s approval or wrath if he ignored Moses words in favor of God’s words to Abraham?

In His Person all that Grace and Truth which had been floating so long in shadowy forms, and darting into the souls of the poor and needy its broken beams, took everlasting possession of human flesh and filled it full.

St. Augustine on Law and Grace | Called to Communion

Why? Because it is totally unnecessary and completely inappropriate! Mahaney alone determines what constitutes necessity and appropriateness! That is his devious out but anyone with the least discernment knows Mahaney will never defend himself or SGC before an independent investigation because he is guilty. If he were innocent, he would be begging for the opportunity! Bring on your false allegations Rachael Denhollander!!!Mahaney is a con artist. He categorically insists, “I am innocent of the allegations that have been made against me personally” but refuses to defend his innocence. He just pronounces himself sinless as though he were God issuing a divine fiat. In August 2004, I called a meeting of all the top pastors in Covenant Life Church and top leaders in Sovereign Grace Ministries to address C.J.

Joseph Prince: The Dangerous Error of Hyper-Grace

Here we also find the first mention of an important person through much of the book of Acts — Barnabas, who would later accompany Paul on his first missionary journey and then part company with Paul in a heated disagreement over a young man, John Mark. Here his name’s meaning is recorded for us — paraklayseos, a form of the word parakaleo, which literally means “one called alongside”. Wherever the Holy Spirit is described as a comforter, this is the Greek word that is used. Barnabas was a man who delighted in playing second fiddle, lifting others up. We will see this characteristic used by God to bring the feared Pharisee Saul into the Antioch church — as Paul the Apostle. It is also of interest to note here that Barnabas was exactly the type of individual we identified as being “down-housed” in Jerusalem for the high holidays in Acts at Pentecost. He was born on the island of Cyprus, but was a Levite, of priestly lineage, an obvious example of a member of the Diaspora. Here he is portrayed as the prime example of what they all were doing, selling their property and bringing the proceeds to the Apostles to distribute to other believers as needed, and abundant grace was upon him. What follows in the next chapter is still demonstrative of the nature of the Kingdom, but is quite the opposite of the Age of Grace in which we live.

Without repentance she faces an uncertain future

(v28) But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near. One of the great difficulties of understanding this passage is that with perfect hindsight we see from history that, while He was speaking to His disciples as if these things would happen within a few years at most, in actuality two thousand years have gone by and they have yet to happen. Realizing this is fundamental to an understanding of the entire Book of Acts (and especially Acts 1:6-7), and we will explain it in greater detail as we progress through it. But suffice it to say for now that God continued to offer the Millennial Kingdom in their immediate future, if their leaders would only accept Jesus as the Messiah. The Book of Acts is the history of Israel’s continual obstinate rejection of that offer, in parallel with God turning to the Gentiles and ushering in the Age of Grace in spite of Israel’s rejection. God patiently waited through thirty years for Israel to repent, but in the end had to set them aside. This is what Paul describes through the allegory of grafted olive branches in Romans 11, but that was unknown to them because it was still a mystery hidden in God.

Even though I was perplexed about Baptist doctrine, I inquired at Bob Jones University and Lancaster School of the Bible for information on enrollment in their ministerial courses. As I was making arrangements to attend one of these two schools, Mrs. Margaret Waldrop, a good friend of the family, called to suggest that before I made a final decision, I should visit the Berean School of Bible and Theology located northwest of Pittsburgh. Unknown ot me at the time, Mrs. Waldrop was a grace believer who knew the school was a grace school, but she simply left the matter with the Lord for me to find out on my own. Great move!
