August 22, 2014, Resources: Being Wronged, Filthy Rags, and “Calvinism”
by Jonathan Hamilton
Another great pair of articles passed along by Pastor Michael Riley of Wakefield:
As protestants, we firmly believe that “righteous deeds” are useless to an unbeliever. They are filthy rags before God. But how does God view the righteous deeds of the believer? Are they filthy rags also?
Finally, a video of R.C. Sproul and Sinclair Ferguson answering theological questions. They tackle the issue of so-called “Limited Atonement,” the most maligned and misunderstood of the doctrines of grace (“Calvinism”). Watch from the 15:15 mark onward for about nine minutes for a crash course in this doctrine. (Incidentally, many of the videos in the dropdown playlist on this page have proven helpful to me recently. You may enjoy them also.)
