1 Studied Delight in the Word Note Ps 111:2 DocTrinsograce Sat 12/10/16, 11:50am 243973
  "I study my Bible like I gather apples. First, I shake the whole tree that the ripest may fall. Then I shake each limb, and when I have shaken each limb, I shake each branch and every twig. Then I look under every leaf. I search the Bible as a whole like shaking the whole tree. Then I shake every limb -- study book after book. Then I shake every branch, giving attention to the chapters. Then I shake every twig, or a careful study of the paragraphs and sentences and words and their meanings." -- Martin Luther (1483-1546)
2 The Important Thing is Truth Note Mark 7:37 DocTrinsograce Fri 12/9/16, 1:30pm 243972
  "If you are looking for politeness in the Reformers, then you are going to have to buy a microscope. Courtesy in polemic was a rare commodity, as even the woodcuts frequently demonstrate. True, there is some evidence that the French editions of Calvin’s Institutes were a little more polite than the Latin but that was less to do with Calvin having second thoughts about his style of attack and more to do with his elitism. After all, we would not want the Great Unwashed thinking that they can talk about our educated opponents in quite the ways we do…. The Reformation was remarkable for two things in this connection: It engaged in powerfully worded polemic; And it generally played that polemic out in public, eschewing elitism, as Luther did in 1525 when he rudely rebutted Erasmus’s view that the bondage of the will was too tricky and confusing a doctrine to preach from the pulpit.

"Those of us who claim to be heirs of the Reformation should take heed. Style and substance are not so easily separated as we might like to think. And the people in the pew have the right—and the need—to hear about the whole counsel of God, from his being in eternity to the consummation of all things at the end of time. For the Reformers, nothing in God’s Word was to be the monopoly of a priesthood or a scholarly guild." --Dr. Carl Truman (2016)
3 God's Protection Against a Fall Note Matt 7:27 DocTrinsograce Thu 12/8/16, 5:36pm 243967
  "We believe that those Holy Scriptures fully contain the will of God, and whatsoever man ought to believe unto salvation is sufficiently taught therein. For since the whole manner of worship which God requires of us is written in them at large, it is unlawful for any one, though an apostle, to teach otherwise than we are now taught in the Holy Scriptures: nay, though it were an angel from heaven, as the apostle Paul says. For since it is forbidden to add unto or take away anything from the Word of God, it does thereby evidently appear that the doctrine thereof is most perfect and complete in all respects. Neither may we consider any writings of men, however holy these men may have been, of equal value with those divine Scriptures, nor ought we to consider custom, or the great multitude, or antiquity, or succession of times and persons, or councils or decrees or statutes, as of equal value with the truth of God, since the truth is above all; for all men or of themselves liars, and more van than vanity itself. Therefore we reject with all our hearts whatever does not agree with this infallible rule, as the apostles have taught us saying, Test the spirits, whether they are of God. Likewise: any one comes to you and brings not this teaching, receive him not into your house. --Belgic Confession article VII
4 Value of the Roots of Halakha Note Acts 17:17 DocTrinsograce Wed 12/7/16, 4:26pm 243965
  "We often read the Bible, hear the news, listen to a sermon, or talk to friends, yet we don’t get much out of it. One central reason for this may be our lack of knowledge and intellectual growth. The more you know, the more you see and hear because your mind brings more to the task of 'seeing as' or 'seeing that.' In fact, the more you know about extra-biblical matters, the more you will see in the Bible. Why? Because you will see distinctions in the Bible or connections between Scripture and an issue in another area of life that would not be possible without the concepts and categories placed in the mind's structure by gaining the relevant knowledge in those extra-biblical areas of thought. Thus, general intellectual development can enrich life and contribute to Bible study and spiritual formation.

"There is a closely related reason why intellectual development can enhance spiritual development: The mind forms habits and falls into ruts. One day at a chapel meeting, a missions professor showed a film clip of a foreign culture unfamiliar to most of us. He asked us to write down everything we noticed. He then showed the clip a second time and asked us to repeat the exercise. Everyone in the chapel meeting compared his or her first and second lists and, in every case, they were virtually identical!. The professor's lesson: our minds get into ruts in which we tend to look for things we have already seen in order to validate our earlier perceptions. We seldom look at things from entirely fresh perspectives!

"If we're honest with ourselves, we have to admit that we get into ruts in our thinking and develop habits of thought that can grow stale after a while. This is where renewing the mind comes in. A life of study can give us a constant source of new categories and beliefs that will lead to fresh insights and stave off intellectual boredom. Many people become bored with the Bible precisely because their overall intellectual growth is stagnant. They cannot get new insights from Scripture because they bring the same old categories to Bible study and look to validate their old habits of thought." --J. P. Moreland (1997) from his book "Love Your God with All Your Mind: The Role of Reason in the Life of the Soul"

5 Watch Yourself... Do Not Forget the Lord Note Deut 6:12 DocTrinsograce Tue 12/6/16, 3:29pm 243964
  "It is easy for us as modern Christians to point the finger at the Israelites and take them to task for the fact that they forgot God. The complaining we see in the wilderness, the cycle of apostasy, judgment, and restoration that we see in Judges, the good king/bad king alternations that we see in 1–2 Kings -- these all emphasize the incessant inability of the Israelites to heed Moses’ admonition to 'take care lest you forget the LORD, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery' (Deut. 6:12). We get tired when we read through Jeremiah and chapter after chapter is devoted to enumerating the sins of Israel and telling of Israel's coming judgment. We feel that we are superior to Israel, more spiritual, less likely to forget God.

"But we, too, get distracted by the demands of our days, by the busyness of our times. We forget that as Moses warned that declining from the commandments of God displays a forgetting of God, the same applies to us. We tend to think that ignoring, or rather, not fully living up to one commandment of God is a small thing. But the result is not simply disobedience. It is the beginning of idolatry, of making a god in our own image, a god we can easily obey. But did Jesus not say, 'If you love me, you will keep my commandments' (John 14:15)? Yet, we find His commandments so easy to ignore. 'Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you' (Eph. 4:32), Paul says, but we want to hold on to offenses and resentments. It feels good to bear a grudge. But that is not the way Christ teaches. To bear a grudge, to envy the gifts and graces of others, to covet the possessions of others -- these are steps on the way to forgetting God." --Dr. Benjamin Shaw
6 No examples Note Matt 28:1 EdB Tue 12/6/16, 6:31am 243963
  I would agree that some believe that but I believe them to be wrong.

A crucifixion on the Jewish sabbath would have caused a uproar and possible rebellion of the Jews. Certainly the Jews would not have participated as shown they did in scripture.

The Sabbath runs from sun down Friday to sundown Saturday. Also because it was The Passover there would have been a Sabbath from sun down Thursday to sun down Friday.

That convinces me Jesus was crucified before sun down Thursday and remained in the grave until Sunday. Thus 3 days and three nights in the grave.

However tradition teaches Jesus was crucified before Sundown Fri and arose Sunday. To me that let's us a night short
Thursday day, Sabbath night and day Saturday night and day arose
If h had been crucified Wed. It would be Wednesday, Thursday night and day which was the The Passover Sabbath, Friday night and day which would be the weekly Sabbath and arose Sunday.
That is the only way there would be three days and three nights.

Most people miss the title of scripture of The Sabbath John 19:31. There is only one The Sabbath in Jewish culture it is the The Sabbath of the Passover.

Many will try to refute using all kinds of fabricated explanations and that is okay.

Make your own decision.

What is important Jesus, innocent of all sin was crucified, His blood poured out as a perfect sacrifice for our sin, thus saving us. And He arose proving that death had no hold and all that would arise again in the resurrection. Some to eternal damnation and some to eternal heaven. John 3:16 tells to be saved we must believe.

Do not let any concern over days and nights or other doctrines/traditions of man make you lose focus on that truth. The Blood of Jesus was the eternal perfect sacrifice for your sin and you must accept this to be saved.
7 No examples Note Matt 28:1 Cole209 Tue 12/6/16, 5:00am 243962
re: "Personally I think the concept as you stated it is false and therefore is impossible to defend. I know of no one on this forum that would or could defend within the criteria you stated."

Would you agree that there are some who believe the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week, and who think that the "heart of the earth is referring to the tomb?
8 No examples Note Matt 28:1 Cole209 Tue 12/6/16, 4:30am 243961
re: "Is it possible you are looking for something that does not exist?"

That certainly seems to be the case.

re: "Where did you see the statement?"

Actually, it's been so long ago that I don't remember.

re: "Who made it?"

Same as above.

re: "Did you ask them to support the hypothesis they presented?"

Same as above.

re: "Did someone on this forum make it?"

I don't think so, at least not originally.

9 Rejoice at the Redeemer's Birth Note Luke 1:14 DocTrinsograce Sun 12/4/16, 11:03am 243960
  "It was love, mere love; it was free love that brought the Lord Jesus Christ into our world. What, shall we not remember the birth of Jesus? Shall we yearly celebrate the birth of our temporal king [of England], and shall that of the King of kings be quite forgotten? Shall that only, which ought to be had chiefly in remembrance, be quite forgotten? God forbid!

"No, my brethren, let us celebrate and keep this festival of our church with joy in our hearts: let the birth of a redeemer, which redeemed us from sin, from wrath, from death, from hell, be always remembered; may this Savior’s; love never be forgotten! But may we sing forth all his love and glory as long as life shall last here, and through an endless eternity in the world above! May we chant forth the wonders of redeeming love and the riches of free grace, amidst angels and archangels, cherubim and seraphim, without intermission, forever and ever!" --George Whitefield (1714-1770)

10 Grace of our God Alone Note 2 Thess 1:12 DocTrinsograce Sat 12/3/16, 5:24pm 243959
  "Grace stands in direct opposition to any supposed worthiness on our part. To say it another way: Grace and works are mutually exclusive. As Paul said in Romans 11:6, 'And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.' Our relationship with God is based on either works or grace. There is never a works-plus-grace relationship with Him." --Jerry Bridges from his book "Transforming Grace"
11 The Sole Authority Note Ps 119:133 DocTrinsograce Fri 12/2/16, 1:50pm 243958
  "Jesus prayed to the Father, 'Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth' (John 17:17). Scripture is God's Word written, and apart from it we cannot have a saving knowledge of God or grow in our relationship with Him. The Apostle Paul says God gave us the Scriptures to profit us through teaching, reproving, correcting, and training in righteousness so 'that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work' (2 Tim. 3:16–17). To grow in maturity, a Christian must grow in his understanding of and submission to Scripture.

"A casual acquaintance with the Bible will not suffice, as Jesus makes clear in the conclusion of His Sermon on the Mount when He contrasts a house built on a rock that withstands the storms with one built on sand that is destroyed by them. The latter represents the person who merely hears the Word of Christ without submissively complying with it. His life lacks stability. The former is like the wise man who not only hears the teachings of Jesus but 'does them.' His life will be characterized by a maturity that stands firm through the trials of life.

"God has designed His Word to shape us through reading and hearing (Romans 10:17; Revelation 1:3), through meditation and memorization (Joshua 1:8; Psalms 1:1-3; 119:11), and especially through faithful preaching (2 Timothy 4:1-5)."
12 God Gains the Victory Note Ps 98:1 DocTrinsograce Thu 12/1/16, 2:55pm 243957
  "There are other ways in which God works sanctification in us in such a way that we are victorious over sin.

"To confess our sins before God brings forgiveness. That too is victory. When, at Calvary, we confess our sins and seek forgiveness through the blood of Christ, these sins are forgiven, and we know that we are righteous and sinless before the eyes of our Father in heaven. Sin cannot rob us of His love and care. Sin confessed cannot keep us from heaven. Sin washed away in the blood of Christ gives us victory over Satan and his hosts, the world, and our own remaining sin.

"Thus the victory of the child of God is found in a good conscience. Our conscience condemns us because it shows us our sins. But Scripture speaks of consciences washed in the blood of Christ (Heb.9:14). With freedom from an accusing conscience, we walk in the joy and hope of our salvation. Free from sin in God’s eyes, we are victorious.


"The victory of the Christian is evident too in the fact that, although he falls in his path, he never gives up. He may yield to that temptation again and again, and commit the same sin repeatedly. The temptation to give up and fight no longer is strong. But he never does. Fallen, he rises again. Weary in the battle, he presses forward. Wounded and bleeding, he resolves to pursue his calling with renewed strength. He cannot be defeated, no matter how fierce the battle. He is more than a conqueror!" --Professor Herman Hanko (2016) from his book "The Victorious Christian"

13 Christ Calls for Repentance Note Rev 2:22 DocTrinsograce Fri 11/25/16, 11:50am 243956
  "Repentance is looked upon as a tedious thing, requiring great effort; but men are content with their dregs and do not care to stir. They would rather go sleeping to hell than weeping to heaven. 'A slothful man hides his hand in his vest' (Prov. 19.24); he will not strike his breast. Many would rather lose heaven than ply the oar and row on the waters of repentance. We cannot have the world citra pulverem (without labor and diligence); would we not rather have what is more excellent? Sloth is the cancer of the soul: 'Slothfulness tosses into a deep sleep' (Prov. 19.15). It was a witty fiction of the poets that when Mercury put Argus to sleep and closed his eyes with an enchanted flute, he then killed him. It is no fiction that when Satan has lulled men to sleep in sloth by his witcheries, he then destroys them. Some report that while the crocodile sleeps with its mouth open, the Indian rat gets into its belly and eats up its entrails. So too while men sleep in false security, they are devoured." --Thomas Watson (1620-1686)

14 Thanksgiving Unto our Lord 2016 Note Ps 50:23 DocTrinsograce Thu 11/24/16, 2:43pm 243955
  The past few days, and the current holiday, have caused me to think back upon those things for which I am grateful to our God in His eternal providence.

I am grateful for family, and God's work in their lives. I am grateful for a Proverbs 31 wife, who consistently manifests all of the fruit of the Spirit.

I am grateful for a church who holds firmly to the truth, all that God has revealed (Deuteronomy 29:29). I am grateful that they do not try to revise history so as to cause themselves and the Reformers to look more fully Scriptural and more righteous than they were. I am grateful to a Saviour who affirmed the importance of truth and only truth. I am grateful that I have been received amidst a group of scholars who will not bend history to fit their doctrine, but rather recognize that our doctrine doesn't need such bolstering. I am grateful for the Reformers, who sought the truth of God even though it often resulted in the loss of their lives. I am grateful for the technology that allows us to verify church history.

Above all else, I am grateful for God's wondrous work of salvation, that -- through absolutely no merit of my own -- saved a wretch like me.

Have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving to one and all.

The First Thanksgiving Proclamation (06/20/1675):

"The Holy God having by a long and Continual Series of his Afflictive dispensations in and by the present War with the Heathen Natives of this land, written and brought to pass bitter things against his own Covenant people in this wilderness, yet so that we evidently discern that in the midst of his judgments he hath remembered mercy, having remembered his Footstool in the day of his sore displeasure against us for our sins, with many singular Intimations of his Fatherly Compassion, and regard; reserving many of our Towns from Desolation Threatened, and attempted by the Enemy, and giving us especially of late with many of our Confederates many signal Advantages against them, without such Disadvantage to ourselves as formerly we have been sensible of, if it be the Lord’s mercy that we are not consumed, It certainly bespeaks our positive Thankfulness, when our Enemies are in any measure disappointed or destroyed; and fearing the Lord should take notice under so many Intimations of his returning mercy, we should be found an Insensible people, as not standing before Him with thanksgiving, as well as lading him with our Complaints in the time of pressing Afflictions.”
15 Watch your soul Note Phil 4:8 EdB Thu 11/24/16, 7:57am 243954
  Be careful what books you read, for as water tastes of the soil it runs through, so does the soul taste of the authors that a man reads. -- John Trapp
16 Attestation of Unity in the Truth Note 3 John 1:3 DocTrinsograce Wed 11/23/16, 8:14pm 243953
  "Unity without verity is no better than conspiracy." --John Trapp (1601-1669)
17 Wolves Among the Sheep Note Ezek 22:27 EdB Wed 11/23/16, 7:45pm 243952
  Problem as in the parable of wheat and tares only God or the Angels so charged can make accurate determination. Unless someone denies Jesus, denies the resurrection, denies the truth of the gospels it is nearly impossible to find the wolves.
Many people think they can but most are bitter, bigoted and hateful that want people to think they are deeply Christian.

They want to be fruit inspectors but were never given the job.

If a person confesses Jesus as Lord only God knows for sure if he is sheep or wolf.
18 Judgment Against False Doctrine Note Zech 5:4 EdB Wed 11/23/16, 7:38pm 243951
  What is false doctrine when talking about orthodox Christianity?
Anything that denies the theology you hold?

If you are a Calvinist then anything else is false.
If you are an Armenianist then anything else is false doctrine.
If you are a Dispensationalist then anything else is false.
If you are a millennialist then anything else is false.
If you are Ammillennial then anything else is false.

If you are a true Christian your particular theology really does not matter as long as you are looking to Jesus for your salvation.
19 Judgment Against False Doctrine Note Zech 5:4 EdB Wed 11/23/16, 7:30pm 243950
  The question remains who decides what is false doctrine?
Is the doctrine of the Baptist false?
Is the doctrine of the United Methodist false?
Is the doctrine of the Presbyterian false?
Is the doctrine of the Wesleyan false?
Is Calvinism correct?
Is Arminianism correct?
The list goes on which is false and which one the one correct one?

Who says and who makes the call?
Then we can take it further

Is Dispensationalism false?
Is the belief in the rapture wrong?
Is millenninialism false.
Is covenant theology wrong?
Is perterist wrong?
And again the lists goes on.

Should we baptize in the name of Father Son and Holy Spirit or just in Jesus name.
Should we dunk or sprinkle for baptism?
Should we pray to God the father or to Jesus.
Does the Holy Spirit have a complete ministry or just a part?
And the list goes on

Since there isn't anyway to determine which is correct we pick the one the fits our belief system and as long as it meets the requirements of orthodox Christianity it makes no difference.

Debating which is correct or even most correct leads to anger and strife so why do it?

20 Judgment Against False Doctrine Note Zech 5:4 DocTrinsograce Wed 11/23/16, 5:02pm 243949
  "And no fact in Church history is more clearly proved than this -- that false doctrine has never ceased to be the plague of Christendom for the last eighteen centuries [now twenty-one centuries]. Looking forward with the eye of a prophet. Saint Paul might well say 'I fear: I fear not merely the corruption of your morals, but of your minds.' The plain truth is that false doctrine has been the chosen engine which Satan has employed in every age to stop the progress of the Gospel of Christ. Finding himself unable to prevent the Fountain of Life being opened, he has laboured incessantly to poison the streams which flow from it. If he could not destroy it, he has too often neutralized its usefulness by addition, subtraction, or substitution. In a word he has 'corrupted men's minds.'" --J. C. Ryle from his "Warnings to the Church"
