God’s Word and Spirit – Ralph Venning

God’s Word and Spirit – Ralph Venning

God’s Word and God’s Spirit always agree and are of the same mind. The Spirit of God who gave the Holy Scripture cannot say one thing here and another in your heart. That would be to bear witness against himself. And how can a divided kingdom stand?

Cultural Holiness –  Jerry Bridges

Cultural Holiness – Jerry Bridges

Many Christians have what we might call a “cultural holiness”. They adapt to the character and behavior pattern of Christians around them. As the Christian culture around them is more or less holy, so these Christians are more or less holy. But God has not called us to be like those around us. He has called us to be like Himself. Holiness is nothing less than conformity to the character of God.
