Henry on the central preaching theme of God's salvation


My last post was about a masterful goal by Thierry Henry (pronounced "on-ree"). This post is a masterful quote from Carl F.H. Henry (pronounced "Hen-ree"). The two are not related... 


This may seem like an overstatement, but Carl Henry's "God, Revelation, and Authority" is quickly taking it's place in my top five Christian works list. Henry's monumental six-volume work on the subject of Scripture and Authority is one of the most encouraging, enlightening, and reassuring theological works I have ever read. I have finished reading and writing on five of the volumes. Volume four is remarkably good. As Henry talked about the life-transforming power of the Holy Spirit, He made a bold statement that hit me between the eyes-


"The Gospel was ordained for universal availability and participation. Only a wickedly apostate pseudo church, or a theologically ignorant church can and would neglect as a central preaching theme God’s life-transforming plan of salvation. God's purpose in redemption is to deliver otherwise doomed sinners from the penalty and guilt and power- and ultimately from the very presence-of sin, and to restore the penitent to vital fellowship with himself and to righteousness. God's revelation and redemption have in view a people of God, a transformed humanity that some have called "the company of the committed."

Henry...the best in MLS

Chris Wondoloski is having an incredible goal scoring year for San Jose, but he's still not the most talented striker in MLS.

That honor goes to the ageless wonder, Thierry Henry.  Check out his latest-

Moving...


My deepest apologies are extended to the faithful readership of REEPICHEEP.

I have been too busy to post much, primarily because of our current move to a new house.

Shortly after my father died a year ago this May, we decided rather than have my mother live in their big house alone, she should come live with us.   Our current house isn't big enough for her to have her own private living space, so we set out to find a house that would provide such a thing.  After taking nine months to sell her house, we were able to find a house closer to church and with the potential to build her a "mother in law" type apartment.  The house is a touch smaller than our current house, but the yard is a whole acre.

All this to say, I have been swamped with moving details. We are moving over the next few days, so I fully expect to be back in to blogging swing very soon.
