“I wonder if followers of Christ 150 years from now will look back at Christians in America today and ask, ‘How could they live in such big houses? How could they drive such nice cars and wear such nice clothes? How could they live in such affluence while thousands of children were dying because they didn’t have food and water? How could they go on with their lives as though the billions of poor didn’t exist?” David Platt, Radical

Soul Idolatry

November 24, 2010 | Categories: Church Blog, Front Page Gallery, and Puritans. Tags: David Clarkson, desire, idolatry, and worldliness.

“Every reigning lust is an idol, and every person in whom it reigns is an idolater. ‘The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life.’ These are the three great idols of humanity. We are quick to prostrate our souls before them, and give to them that which is due only to God.”

Peace, be still

November 23, 2010 | Categories: Church Blog, Front Page Gallery, and Puritans. Tags: Christ, emotions, John Owen, and suffering.

“Our minds are apt by their troubles to be cast into disorder, to be tossed up and down, and disquieted…And indeed, the mind on all such occasions is its own greatest troubler. It is likely to let loose its passions of fear and sorrow, which then multiply into innumerable perplexing thoughts, until it is carried utterly out of its own power. But in this state a due contemplation of the glory of Christ will restore and compose the mind–bring it into a sedate, quiet frame, where faith will be able to say to the winds of our soul, ‘Peace, be still,’ and they shall obey.”

Take heed to yourselves

October 6, 2010 | Categories: Church Blog, Front Page Gallery, and Puritans. Tags: doctrine, Richard Baxter, and speech.

“Take heed to yourselves, lest your example contradict your doctrine, and lest you lay such stumbling blocks before the blind, that it may lead to their ruin. Be careful, or you may un-say with your life, what you say with your tongue.”

Richard Baxter

Don’t Desire The World

“God did not cast us out of paradise to seek another paradise in the world. This world is troublesome, and yet it is loved; what would it be to you if it were free of trouble? You embrace the world, though it is filthy; what would you do if it were beautiful? Only heaven is above the winds, storms, tempests.” “Do not love the world or the things in the world” (1Jn.2:15).

Jeremiah Burroughs
