The Doctrines of Grace by: Shaun Willcock, Gospel Minister
Total Depravity of Man - cont.
"Behold, I was shapen in iniquity," wrote David, "and in sin did my mother conceive me"(Psa.51:5). "ALL have sinned"(Rom.3:23), without exception; and to this truth, the Scriptures give abundant witness (e.g. Gen.6:5; 8:21; Rom.3:10-12; Isa.64:6; Jer.17:9; etc., etc.).
All mankind sinned "in Adam." He, being the father and representative of the entire human race, when he sinned, all sinned. We were "in his loins", so to speak. Just as Levi "payed tithes in Abraham, for he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met" Abraham (Heb.7:9,10), so all mankind was "in the loins" of Adam. And thus, ever since the birth of Cain, the first man, every man and woman enters this world a rebel against God, spiritually dead, alienated from God, and under the dominion of sin.
Perfect June. Maybe Lurker will see it one day.

What a lovely, refreshing post.

Thanks for sharing that experience.

That's it, June. Shaun Willcock has summed it up perfectly.

You sure dropped on a good theologian/pastor to aid you on your pilgrim journey.

John,
I believe what you affirm is agreeable to the Scriptures:
Psalm 51:5
Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Matt. Henry Commentary:
"Note, It is to be sadly lamented by every one of us that we brought into the world with us a corrupt nature, wretchedly degenerated from its primitive purity and rectitude; we have from our birth the snares of sin in our bodies, the seeds of sin in our souls, and a stain of sin upon both. This is what we call original sin, because it is as ancient as our original, and because it is the original of all our actual transgressions. This is that foolishness which is bound in the heart of a child, that proneness of evil and backwardness to good which is the burden of the regenerate
and the ruin of the unregenerate; it is a bent to backslide from God."
Yes indeed, it is good commentary by MH who I greatly respect. And C H Spurgeon would believe the same, and a great multitude of other pastors and theologians and the general population of Christians.

Them that go astray on the subject of headship will always end up with false doctrines. I will hold the doctrine of original sin all my life, for it is true.

Amen to that!
John, does Lurker deny the doctrine of election of grace?
is Lurker an Arminian?
June, it is very difficult to pigeonhole my friend Lurker, because he will not relate to any other Christian theologian for a comparison.

But to my mind, all spiritual errors concerning salvation happen as a result of not accepting the devastation caused by the fall of our federal head and representative, Adam.

To my mind, as soon as we are born, we sin because we are born sinners. We are not called sinners when we begin to sin.

Over the years we have had huge debates on this subject lasting for months, literally.

This is where humanist philosophy breaks in, even to strong Christians. They have a child, or a grandchild, and will not see them as "in Adam". The reason for this is because if the human is helpless and dependent on God showing mercy, then if God sovereignly chooses not to have mercy, there are only two ways forward:

1. Deny the effect of the fall.
2. Resent the Creator.

This is why I posted Job's example. He did neither of the above, because he believed and understood the sovereignty of God, and still worshipped him.

Lurker, note, this statement comes just before Paul launches into his testimony of meeting the risen Christ on the road to Damascus.

Acts 26:8 KJV
(8)  Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?

To my mind, Paul seems to be thinking of the resurrection of Christ, which thing, as a minister of the gospel, he preached on continually. The folks who were born in one of the twelve tribes had advantages, such as the oracles of God, the scriptures, the calling of Abraham, and so on; but, if they rejected the Saviour, their own Messiah, none of the promises would benefit them.

There is an election of grace, throughout all of history, and it does not run in nations or people-groups but individuals who are chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world.

I realise this rankles you, but it is the plain truth of scripture especially Paul's writings, who also taught about the headship of both Adam and Christ.

We begin life in Adam - lost by nature.

Christians have been placed in Christ by the working of the Holy Spirit in regeneration, quickening and enlightenment, and this, because of the election of grace, not of works.

... The immense ethnic mixer present at Pentecost.
Lastly, Paul, pertaining to a family from 'Judah' in exile in Tarsus, declares himself as a true *Israelite* from the tribe of Benjamin, though he generally uses the term 'Jew' in his theological treatises to epitomise the figure of an ethnic Hebrew or Abraham's descendant.
Thank you sister, so are you saying that when we read "Jew" in the NT (except for the "true Jews" which June mentioned earlier, thank you) we are looking at ethnic Hebrews or physical descendants of Abraham?

James. Thomas wrote:
When Israel split into two kingdoms after the reign of Solomon, Judah and Benjamin became the house of Judah (southern kingdom) and to Judah (The Jews) was given the oracles of God (Rom 3:1-2).
Okay James, I apologise. Too harsh I think. I was annoyed with you.

Now this thing you are saying is deceptive. The text says that the oracles of God were given to the circumcised Jews. You say that they were given to Judah (The Jews).

Romans 3:1-2 KJV
(1)  What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?
(2)  Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.

It says the oracles of God were committed unto the Jews. But no mention of Judah. You inserted that because of your presupposition that all Jews are the two tribes of the southern kingdom, Judah and Benjamin.

But the oracles of God go way back, before even Jacob was born. So that there was not even Israel and certainly no Judah. Or, do you determine how to interpret "oracles of God" by what suits your theology?

Just in case anyone was wondering why I posted about Anna and Zacharias, observe:

Ephesians 2:11-13 KJV
(11)  Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
(12)  That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
(13)  But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

Anna and Zacharias and John Baptist were not from the tribe of Judah, and my dear friends James and Lurker claim that they are not therefore Jews and all like them are mentioned in Ephesians 2:11 where they are called uncircumcised Gentiles.

So that in Ephesians 2:15, the twain who are brought together in Christ, are people like "Anna and Zacharias" (who emerged from the ten tribes) and the two other tribes of the southern kingdom, thus making one new man.

I only know two people who believe this.

I wonder if Anna regarded herself as a Gentile Israelite?

Luke 2:36 KJV
(36)  And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity;

Or maybe John Baptist's father (tribe of Levi) was also a Gentile Israelitish. Which would make John Baptist a Gentile.

Luke 1:5 KJV
(5)  There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.

I'm only wondering and maybe-ing, nothing more.

It may be a good thing. But the best cure is the cure for sin: freedom from its condemnation, power, and ultimately from its very presence.

Thank you Benjamin. You can come out into the light now, they are simply hyper Calvinists, who take the sovereignty of God to such an extreme they never call on men to repent or believe the gospel.

John,
what exactly do you mean by that last sentence?
Good morning sister,

I have in the last few years finally been getting to grips with the whole purpose of man and what God made him for. You know there is a catechism somewhere which says that the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him for ever. This is what I am coming to learn more and more, and it is the antithesis of what passes for much of Christianity in our day. What happened? Humanist philosophy happened. And what is that, exactly?

If you want to dig deeper, get a short taster (about seven minutes) by Paris Reidhead which the editors have entitled "Christian Humanism", which are extracts from the main message of about an hour, if you care to watch the whole sermon (which is called Ten Shekels and a Shirt).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3FV6_dQwZU

It certainly changed my whole way of thinking and sobered me up as to what I was supposed to be doing on this planet, and what the cross was all about: not merely what it has achieved FOR me, but what it is designed to do IN me, that I might glorify God only and never myself.

Soli Deo Gloria

Here it is, June. I ran out of space, but here is a great example of a man of God who loved God more than anything. I believe it to be the way all of us need to be, and a good target to aim at. It produces a God-fearing people, the like of which I just don't see in the UK very much. They are rare. And I don't say I have it myself, not at the level I would like to have. Of course, God was able to say to Satan, "Consider my servant Job..."

Job 1:18-22 KJV
(18)  While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house:
(19)  And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.
(20)  Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped,
(21)  And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.
(22)  In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.

Coded documents left by one of the founders of the modern missionary movement have been deciphered by a student at the University of St Andrews.

Baptist leader Andrew Fuller (1754-1815) was a supporter of William Carey, the first modern missionary to India, and hugely influential in the growth of the Baptist movement.

Fuller was a profoundly signficant figure in the Baptist story, he told Christian Today. 'First, he wrote the book that brought Particular Baptists into the evangelical movement, overcoming hard-line Calvinism,' he said. 'All contemporary British Baptists are his heirs. ...

Amen and Amen. Andrew Fuller was one of many who sought a better way than hardline Calvinism. It is interesting news because today at meeting (five hours) I explained what it means to be a Particular Baptist (like myself). The original group had the full title Strict and Particular Baptist. They were strict about who could receive the bread and wine (limited to the church), they believed in Particular Redemption (that Jesus specifically died for those given him in covenant by God the Father) and Baptist (because they believed in believer's baptism by immersion).

Lurker wrote:
John,
Are you of the opinion that the ten tribes of the northern kingdom were Jews? I don't need a 1300 character rant that says nothing. A simple yes or no will do.
Lurker, I realised as soon as I began this study, that definition of terms is required.

So excuse me for asking, but:

1. a) Are you asking, considering that the Israelites were twelve tribes in toto, the ten tribes separated in the north, were Jews? b) At the time of the writing of the NT?

2. By Jews, do you mean physical descendants of Abraham, of whatever tribe? Or Israelites in general? Or people of the two tribes in the southern kingdom?

My starting point for the research is Ephesians 2:15, followed by James's cross references to Hosea 2:18-19 from Romans 9:24-25 and thence to Ezekiel 34:25, 30, and wherever else that takes me. Thank you.
______

June, I agree with what you have written, it is a good definition. But there are also many who believe the doctrines of grace who yet have humanistic thoughts. The perfect example in the Bible (which is rare today) of a person without humanistic thinking is Job, who was able to say, after his beloved children were murdered, "The Lord gave and the Lord hath taketh away, blessed be....."

Lurker, I will study this subject as and when I have time, and providing I feel well enough, which means it might take some time, but hey ho this is such a crucial doctrine and well worth the effort it will take to arrive at a yes/no answer for you, especially as it may well be most edifying and life-changing, especially for me, but also for you, depending of course on the answer I come up with, because if I come up with yes, you will regard all my efforts as spurious and a waste of time, and if I come up with no you will then dance a jig and possibly put your hip out, which will not, I say, not, be my fault, seeing it is you puts such store on the value of the answer, but hey, I'm doing this for you, Lurker, and I will not post until I have completed my studies.

But how I wish you could come to grasp the truth of the Fall and how it has affected all men, requiring an act of God to bring those of his choosing to new birth. A lot of your anger is secretly against God, knowing this, but denying it in favour of humanism.

Is there anyone here who can tell us all to whom Paul is writing. I ought to say that he does give a few clues in these verses following.

Ephesians 2:11-13 KJV
(11)  Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
(12)  That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
(13)  But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

1. Gentiles
2. Uncircumcision
3. Without Christ
4. Aliens from the commonwealth of Israel
5. Strangers from the covenants of promise
6. Having no hope
7. Without God in the world

Let me see now......hmmmmm......ahhh...errr

I think I have it........no.....

Yes, I got it! Yes!

Oh, but the James Cultlike Church disagrees with that.

Whatever shall I do?

"Is reading the prophets a mystical experience to you?" asks James.

James, if all you have is an intellectual understanding of the Bible, there is something seriously missing. I'm serious.
