To God Be The Glory
Here are five truths we hold & believe with all our heart. Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace, and Perseverance of the saints.
What these blessed truths of God’s Word do is attribute all the salvation of a sinner to God alone - therefore God gets all the Glory. To tell a sinner that God wants to save him, yet He can’t because the sinner won’t let him, is to make the sinner have all the power in his own salvation, which makes God powerless. Can this be true? Can a man control the grace of God?
Can a sinner make the death of Christ ineffectual, because he won’t cooperate with the Holy Spirit? Can the sinner make the blood of Christ powerless because he won’t let Christ into his heart? These things are too absurd be to believed. Men can call it a lie,or even call it heresy, but can-not refute it
There have always been, of course, many objections to these five truths. Most of them boil down to two. The first contends, that these doctrines are not true, for the reason that God is not totally sovereign. This objection is without foundation, for Scripture repeatedly states that God is sovereign. Which simply means that Heacts like God, "He does as he pleases", (Ps. 115:3). The second objection is founded on the mistaken notion of Man’s "free will", man is responsible
but not free. He is a slave to sin until freed by Christ. Christ said, No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day (Jn. 6:44). Scripture teaches free grace, not free will. Underlying these objections is the secret (and sometimes open) objection, "That’s not fair! This is the worst of all, for it is a direct accusation against God. It mistakenly pre supposes that Man has rights, that grace is owed to him. Grace world not be grace if fallen man, had a claim upon it. Man, by naturre, is a guilty, totally depraved enemy of God Almighty.
The Doctrine of God’s Grace has a twofold effect. First, they humble the sinner and encourage the saint The give man his due place. It gives the believer a solid foundation for his faith he knows that if a sovereign God is for him wo can be against him? (Rom. 8:31). The second effect is that they give all glory to God. Can we give God too much Glory? God is God, and He will not give His glory to another (Isa. 42:8, 48.11). These five blessed truths recognizes that Man is Man and God is God. We exist for God’s glory. And so our song shall ever be…To God Alone be the Glory.
