Tidbits to Share

If you haven't found or been pointed to "First Importance" let me be the one to send you that way. I recommend you add it to your feed-reader, if you have one... and if you don't... shame on you for wasting so much time! (said the man on his third blog post of the day...)

Anyway, I just wanted to share two of the more recent postings I thought were excellent:

“We conclude, therefore, that a Christian lives not in himself, but in Christ and in his neighbor. Otherwise he is not a Christian. He lives in Christ through faith, in his neighbor through love. By faith he is caught up beyond himself into God. By love he descends beneath himself into his neighbor.”

- Martin Luther, On Christian Liberty (Minneapolis, MN: Augsburg Fortress, 2003), 62.

“A man is not saved because he believes in Christ; he believes in Christ because he is saved.”

- Loraine Boettner, The Reformed Doctrine of Predestination (Philadelphia, PA: P&R Publishing, 1965), 101.
