Today, Sat Feb 21 only, free Kindle book: Obedience in the faith-versus-works discussion.

February 21st, 2015 by Bookslinger

An interesting read, by Andrew Murray, written in the 1800’s. A Life of Obedience. The Kindle edition is free for today only.

Kindle books don’t require an actual Kindle device. Free Kindle reading apps are available for smart phones, tablets, and computers.

I haven’t read the whole thing yet, but wanted to make a shout-out due to the temporary nature of the free e-book.

The books starts by quoting both Old Testament and New Testament passages that illustrate that the need for obedience surmounts the need for faith.

Behold the Concubine of the Lord

December 23rd, 2014 by G.

Nothing made the Southern defenders of the peculiar institution more hot than the accusation that Southern men dallied with their slave women. An oblique reference to it by Senator Sumner was what got Congressman Brooks to near cane him to death. (more…)

The Costs of Discipleship

April 15th, 2014 by G.

Elder Holland is pitching it strong and true.

The road leading to the promised land “flowing with milk and honey” of necessity runs by way of Mount Sinai, flowing with “thou shalts” and “thou shalt nots.”

Ears to Hear

April 04th, 2014 by John Mansfield

Back in 1985, I was a missionary serving in Argentina. Not much news from the United States reached my ears. Destruction of the Challenger space shuttle. Deaths of Orson Welles and Yul Brynner. Among the things that didn’t penetrate the filter of distance and irrelevance were two bombing murders committed by a forger in Salt Lake City. (more…)

Revolt Against Reality

March 19th, 2014 by G.

The dislike of moral law and positive law is the leading edge of our antinomian age: this is where the attack on law begins. But the beating heart of the zeitgeist is the hatred of the ultimate law: modern antinomianism is fundamentally the hatred of Reality.

Reality, What Is, The Way Things Are—this is the ultimate law, the final constraint.

That’s the root of Satan’s misery and evil, in my opinion. He’s trying to fight what is.
