- WORSHIP GOD 06
- ALCOHOL AND THE CHRISTIAN
Mathew Sims begins his critique and commentary on Article 16 of the T4G Affirmations and Denials. “This topic,” he says,” will probably take up quite a few posts to accurately and Biblically discuss the issue and article.”
Mathew Sims continues his critique of Article 16 by explaining and clarifying some issues raised in part 1 of his commentary.
“The fact that we can please God is a never ending source of amazement to me. Of course, when it comes to justification, nothing we do can please God sufficiently for him to accept us. But as his children, forgiven and reconciled through the atoning sacrifice of his Son, we can actually bring God pleasure through our grace-motivated, faith-empowered acts of obedience.”
Just hours ahead of WorshipGod06, Bob Kauflin has “a deep desire that everything that takes place over the next few days brings pleasure to God.”
The Thirsty Theologian has a seven-part series prompted by the SBC ruling requiring abstinence from alcohol. Incidentally, for your interest, most British Christians have no qualms whatsoever about moderate alcohol consumption.
