Sabbath’s Day Quote and Read March 4, 2007

Lar,

This is most definitely going to be a Sabbath’s Day post.  I’ll pick things up tomorrow, Lord willing.

First, here’s a quote (actually the first words) from the first article/sermon I will link to, namely, The Explusive Power of a New Affection by Thomas Chalmers.  I think you would agree with me that this is a must read, if not today, then at some point for sure.

THERE are two ways in which a practical moralist may attempt to displace from the human heart its love of the world – either by a demonstration of the world’s vanity, so as that the heart shall be prevailed upon simply to withdraw its regards from an object that is not worthy of it; or, by setting forth another object, even God, as more worthy of its attachment, so as that the heart shall be prevailed upon not to resign an old affection, which shall have nothing to succeed it, but to exchange an old affection for a new one.

My purpose is to show, that from the constitution of our nature, the former method is altogether incompetent and ineffectual and that the latter method will alone suffice for the rescue and recovery of the heart from the wrong affection that domineers over it. After having accomplished this purpose, I shall attempt a few practical observations.

Second, here’s an article by Al Mohler called, Is Your Baby Gay?  Startling yes, but his conclusions are very important.

Enjoy your day brother and preach the Word.  I will pray right now for grace upon grace!

Seeking Him with you,

Joe
