Those Who Are Doctrinally Instructed

God has an eternal purpose which depends on nothing except what he has decided within himself.  Being God, he orders all events everywhere in such a way that his purpose is served and his name is glorified.  By his word alone he created from nothing the whole universe to be the stage for these events, and he personally controls everything and everyone on that stage.  And so it is that those who are doctrinally instructed study history, read the newspaper, and greet all the joys and heartbreaks of life, in a completely different way to the doctrinally ignorant.  They look up to heaven and in everything give thanks.

About Greg Coleman

I am a Particular Baptist who affirms the absolute sovereignty of the triune Godhead in all things. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in the God-man Jesus Christ. He is the Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, Disposer and Judge of all that ever was, is now or ever shall be. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and men. He was made to be sin for his people and saved them from their sins by his substitutionary, sacrificial death on the cross thereby satisfying the justice and wrath of God against them. The sufficiency of his death to the satisfaction of God’s justice is proven by his physical resurrection from the dead and enthronement in glory at the right hand of the Father. Jesus Christ is coming again to judge the living and the dead. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.
