Recently I was asked something to the effect of what is the “doctrinal hill” on which I would die on. I hesitated just a bit with my answer only because I was sizing up in my mind how close the 2nd doctrinal hill I would die on was to the first.
But the hesitation was not related to moving off that first hill to the second hill, but only on how I would answer to get that 2nd hill into its proper significant role as a close second position. I hope that makes sense.
Anyway my answer was the inerrancy of Scripture for the first and the “ordo salutis (order of salvation) for the second, especially regeneration and God’s sovereign control of giving new birth to dead sinners. I will provide a good article on this aspect as well soon. It has been and always will remain His work from beginning to end...otherwise one could boast that they achieved salvation on their own merit, which we know from Eph. 2:8-9 to be true.
I think these are key for us and when we exercise discernment we give credence to these doctrines and Scripture’s sufficiency.
Here in this blog article we find some great truths to enrich our understanding of all of these. It's the first of a series with a focus on Faith and Discernment.
Blessings! Pastor Robert.
