Another Layman Committed To The Informed Sharing Of God's Graceful Salvation
Mr. Jonathan E. Mason, an English layman, has posted an excellent six part series concerning the "rationalized" Arminian objections that are raised against the doctrine of imputation and penal satisfaction (which are the biblical guarantee of salvation).
I highly recommend this series to be an excellent read for the average interested individual.
Additional, more detailed reading of the underlying Greek and Hebrew Scripture by Thomas J. Ascol on imputation and justification may be read in the Founders Journal #59, at:
Where, John Bunyan is quoted as saying:
One day as I was passing into the field…this sentence fell upon my soul. Thy righteousness is in heaven. And me thought, withal, I saw with the eyes of my soul Jesus Christ at God’s right hand; there, I say, was my righteousness; so that wherever I was, or whatever I was doing, God could not say of me, he wants [=lacks] my righteousness, for that was just [in front of] him. I also saw, moreover, that it was not my good frame of heart that made my righteousness better, nor yet my bad frame that made my righteousness worse, for my righteousness was Jesus Christ himself, “The same yesterday, today and, and forever.” …
Now did my chains fall off my legs indeed. I was loosed from my afflictions and irons; my temptations also fled away; so that from that time those dreadful scriptures of God [e.g. Hebrews 12:16 –17] left off to trouble me; now went I also home rejoicing for the grace and love of God.
I hope you enjoy learning about God's grace in Christ Jesus,
