Let us ever seek grace to live by the rule of the gospel we preach, honoring God in all things; but do not imagine that you can preach the gospel by the way you live. — You can only preach the gospel by declaring it.

The world did not see Christ in Christ and did not see holiness in the Holy One, but crucified him as a vile and wicked man. Don’t ever imagine that the world will see Christ or holiness in you.

Don’t ever attempt to show the world that you are a Christian, or that you are righteous, or that you are godly, or even that you are different from others. Lost people cannot see godliness.

The works by which Abraham and Rahab showed their faith (James 2:21-25) were works seen by no one except God. Even so, the works by which we show our faith are works seen by God alone. Others may benefit from them, but God alone sees them, and sees them as works of faith.

Show your faith by your works, as God the Holy Ghost teaches us to do (James 2:18); but don’t ever attempt show your faith to men. They can’t see it.

Let us seek grace to live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present evil world, to live as sinners saved by the grace of God, to live for God and to the glory of God; but let us never attempt to show the world that we are Christians. The show of religion our Savior expressly forbids (Matthew 6:5-18).

God declares things to be what they are manifestly made to be before he makes them to be what he makes them to be (Romans 4:17).

God enriches his saints by poverty, strengthens them by weakness, makes them healthy by sickness, and lifts them up by abasing them.

The beginning and end of the faithful pastor’s work is to know Christ and to make him known. To that great work God’s servant must give himself entirely, and delights to do so.
I heard Hank Hanagraff speak on these things on the Bible Answer Man radio program and i was shocked that he had preterist views. He always seemed pretty solid in exposing false teachers ect. and seemed to be learned in the scriptures, i could not reconcile him having these views and saying that the Great Tribulation has already happened. I stopped listening to him as much after that , however i do listen here and there.
Yes and was Hank Hannagraaff not the man who wrote the book “what love is this” ? The book against Calvinism ? 🙂 goes to show. We can not trust man we must always test to see if these teachers are from God.
Dave Hunt wrote that very frustrating, badly researched personal account on what he perceives to be Calvinist doctrine. In an attempt to refute Calvinism, he partially succeeds in refuting Christianity and the Sovereignty of God as well. It was a very disappointing attempt by Dave Hunt, who has written some very helpful things in the past. It wasn’t Hank Hanegraaff this time… 🙂
🙂 thanks for the correction !!!
