Any of God's humans could benefit from a interpreting of the 1st volumes of this set. i discovered myself highlighting web page after web page and telling family and friends approximately each perception I encountered at each chance. What distinguishes this therapy of theology from others i've got tried to learn is the truth that the writer provides his fabric as a pastor to a congregation instead of as a textbook to a seminary category. 5 stars for the 1st volumes.
I am completely confident quantity 3 is every piece pretty much as good because the first , until you're a dispensationalist. no longer that he does not make a few telling issues. i used to be struck demanding via the truth that the doctrine of the rapture of the church had no longer existed earlier than 1830 and got here into being no longer because the results of cautious religious study and exegesis yet because the results of a 'revelation' at a prophecy convention. i used to be considering there relatively may be whatever to his college of eschatology until eventually he started a presentation of the ebook of Revelation. it is not that i believe Dr. Lloyd-Jones is lifeless unsuitable; i used to be so stressed through the spiritualizing of completely every little thing that I simply gave up all desire of figuring out any prophecy less than his system.
Having acknowledged that, i'm happy i purchased the books; i'll preserve them and check with them frequently and suggest them to others each probability i am getting.

Because modernism is interested in itself, and in its so‐called psychological ideas of origin, inevitably it starts either with man or with the world, and from that goes on to study the doctrine of God. We are failing to worship Him as we should and failing to conduct ourselves in His presence as the Bible teaches us to do. We must underline the great outstanding principles and, knowing these, we can then proceed to worship God. It is not so much that we are concerned with them and their arguments, as that, from our own standpoint, it is essential that we should be clear in our thinking about this subject.

The goal of all our seeking and all our worship and all our endeavour should not be to have a particular experience; it should not be to petition certain blessings; it should be to know God Himself—the Giver not the gift, the source and the fount of every blessing, not the blessing itself. There is nothing beyond that; it should be the thing above everything else which we covet, and all our efforts should be because of that.
The question is: Are they believing what they ought to believe? Most of the cults which are so prominent in the world today claim that they are based upon the Bible. We must be in a position to explain to them 32 where they go wrong and where they are not biblical, and to [p 36] help them to understand the source of their error. They were guilty of error and of heresy somewhere or another. Now it seems to me that the best thing we can do is to consider the three main propositions which will guide and help us in this matter.
