Excerpt:

To unite with the church is to take one’s place among the followers of the Master. It is a public act. It is a confession of Christ before men. It is not a profession of superior saintliness; on the other hand, it is a distinct avowal of personal sinfulness and unworthiness. Those who seek admission into the church come as sinners, needing and accepting the mercy of God, and depending upon the atonement of Christ for the forgiveness of their sins.

This is a collection of select quotes from J.R. Miller, who wrote many books and articles.

Excerpt

It is not easy to be a  man!

Christ is more than a teacher. A teacher shows us lofty qualities and  attainments — and then leaves us in hopeless weakness in the dust. But Christ is  Helper, Friend, Savior — as well as Teacher. He shows us what true manliness is      — and then comes into our life and inspires us to strive after the things  which He commends; and then breathes His life into us to help us to be  what He teaches us to be.

It is not easy to be a man     — a true, noble,  Christlike man. It means continual struggle, for enemies of manliness  meet us at every step! Every inch of the way must be won in battle. It  means constant restraint and repression of sin — for the ‘old man’ in us must be  subdued and kept under control. It means constant, painful discipline — for the  powers of nature are evil and unruly, and hard to tame and control. It means  unending toil and self-denial — for we must climb ever upward, and the  way is steep and rugged, and SELF must be trampled to death under our feet as we rise to higher life! It is hard to be a true man — for all the odds seem  against us. But Christ lives, and He is Helper, Friend, and Guide — to every man  who truly receives Him as Lord and Master.

The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (ISBE) was edited by James Orr, John Nuelsen, Edgar Mullins, Morris Evans, and Melvin Grove Kyle and was published complete in 1939. This web site includes the complete text.

The ISBE is a classic Bible reference compiled from nearly 10,000 entries written by over 200 different Bible scholars and teachers. In addition to the encyclopedia articles, all of the major words of the Bible are represented and defined.

The historical, cultural, and linguistic information in the ISBE can be of great value in Bible study and research.

But as with any writings of men, the careful student of the Bible must always compare them with Scripture. As you use this helpful study resource, remember that only God’s word is pure.

Cheung, Vincent – Ultimate Questions

PREFACE TO 2004 EDITION

This book brings together three related essays dealing with theology, philosophy, and apologetics. They present the first principles of a biblical system of philosophy, and illustrate how the biblical worldview alone answers all the “ultimate questions,” such as those related to metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, and soteriology.

In the first chapter, I show that God has placed an inescapable revelation of himself in the mind of man. This revelation includes enough specific information for each person to recognize that Christianity is the only true religion and philosophy, and to recognize that all non-Christian religions and philosophies are false. To deny this inescapable revelation constitutes an inexcusable suppression of evidence, resulting in an inevitable damnation. From this, we derive a biblical strategy of apologetics that is fortified by invincible argumentation, showing that the Christian worldview is a necessary precondition to all of life and thought.

In the second chapter, I provide a basic exposition of the logos doctrine, relating it to metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, and soteriology. The conclusion is that Scripture provides sufficient and infallible information from which the Christian may construct a comprehensive and coherent worldview. On the other hand, all non-Christian religions and secular philosophies fail to answer any of the ultimate questions.

Then, in the final chapter, I apply the biblical doctrine of divine sovereignty, an essential theme of the previous two chapters, to specific aspects of soteriology. I conclude that only God can produce true faith in the mind of man, that only true faith perseveres, and that only those who persevere inherit everlasting life from God. On the other hand, all that God has chosen for salvation receive true faith, and all that receive true faith from God persevere, and inherit everlasting life.

SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY

by Vincent Cheung

 

Preface to 2003 Edition

The most important task a Christian can perform at any stage of his spiritual development is to study systematic theology. This may sound extreme to the anti-intellectual mindset of popular Christianity, but it is a necessary conclusion derived from the nature of theology. Theological study possesses intrinsic value, and it is the precondition of every Christian concept and activity. For example, it is the intellectual enterprise of theology that governs the object and mode of prayer, defines the reason and manner of worship, and formulates the message and strategy for evangelism.

I consider this book an adequate text for the beginning reader. Perhaps some will even find it challenging. But being an introduction, it cannot include everything important to a comprehensive understanding of theology. And since its primary purpose is to provide a positive construction or statement of biblical doctrines, the emphasis is not on polemics. The reader should pursue my other writings for more detailed discussions on the topics mentioned in the following chapters.

This book emphasizes the interrelatedness of biblical doctrines, and arranges them in a logical progression from the epistemological precondition of a worldview to the preservation of the believer. The three central motifs of this book are the infallibility of Scripture, the sovereignty of God, and the centrality of the mind. Some of my other works offer additional explanation and defense of these biblical pillars of the Christian system. Especially relevant is my book, Ultimate Questions, which serves well as a companion text to Systematic Theology by giving biblical answers to the questions of epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, and soteriology. Whereas Systematic Theology is an outline of Christian theology, Ultimate Questions is an outline of Christian philosophy and apologetics.

In his book, With Christ in the School of Prayer, Andrew Murray writes, “Reading a book about prayer, listening to lectures and talking about it is very good, but it won’t teach you to pray. You get nothing without exercise, without practice.”1 This is a most foolish thing to say. If reading, listening, and talking about prayer “won’t teach you to pray,” then how are these activities “very good”? If I get “nothing” without practice, then why should I read his book?

His book is supposed to contain insights about prayer drawn from the instructions and examples of Jesus.2 But the statement quoted implies that “practice” or experience is a superior teacher than the very words and acts of Christ. The horror of the situation dawns on us when we realize that it seems most people share Murray’s view about learning spiritual things.3 They say that you can read about it and talk about it, but experience is the best teacher. However, if experience is the best teacher, then Jesus is not the best teacher, and Scripture is not the best source of information. This is blasphemous.

The truth is that experience is the worst teacher, especially when it comes to learning spiritual things.4 Our culture exalts learning by experience, and many Christians assume such a view even though it contradicts their professed allegiance to God and Scripture. Against this popular view, I urge that we must dethrone experience and exalt revelation, that is, the words of Scripture. This means that reading a book can really teach you a lot about prayer,5 and since I would like to show you some of the things that Scripture teaches about the subject, it makes sense that I have written this book.6
