What we're reading

The Cornerstone staff has been reading and discussing the book, Graciousness: Tempering Truth with Love, by John Crotts.

Some thoughts from Ed Fedor, Associate Pastor:

The Bible has been under attack in one way or another, from all sides, for centuries. God calls you and I to not only know the truth of Scripture, but to contend for it, to defend it (Jude 3). But how we do that can either help or harm the greater cause. Crotts wrote of an occasion where the 18th century slave trader turned pastor, John Newton, exhorted a friend on striking the proper balance.

Crotts quotes Newton, "It seems laudable service to defend the faith once delivered to the saints; we are commanded to contend earnestly for it, and to convince gainsayers. If ever such defences [sic] were seasonable and expedient, they appear to be so in our day, when errors abound on all sides, and every truth of the Gospel is either directly denied, or grossly misrepresented." He then gave a strong warning: "If our zeal is embittered by expressions of anger, invective, or scorn, we may think we are doing service to the cause of truth, when in reality we shall only bring it into discredit....What will it profit a man if he gains his cause, and silences his adversary, if at the same time he loses that humble, tender frame of spirit in which the Lord delights, and to which the promise of his presence is made!"

Crotts continues: "As your heart becomes softened by His transforming grace, you should be motivated to do what it takes, with the Spirit's help, to communicate that same grace to everyone around you."

Worth pondering

"Believe in the inspired volume up to the hilt. Believe it right through; believe it thoroughly; believe it with the whole strength of your being. Let the truths of Scripture become the chief factors in your life, the chief operative forces of your action. "
