Monthly Reader – November 2021

This month we can start with two good posts about our heart and good works.

This first one I already reposted by Mike Ratliff

The Nature of a Truly Transformed Heart

This one answering a nagging question from the Got Questions site.

Why did Jesus tell the rich young ruler he could be saved by obeying the commandments?

If you want a useful statement about good works read The Westminster Confession of Faith Chapter 16: Of Good Works

Closing out October and our Reformation celebration. Pastor Ganger had a great sermon.

Trinity United Reformed Church, Walnut Creek, CA
October 31st, 2021, 10 AM

TEXT: 2 Kings 22:1-13, 23:1-5, 21-27
SERMON: A Pattern for Reformers
MINSTER of the Word: Joghinda S. Gangar

JOIN US! Lord’s Day Oct 31st, 2021 as we join together in holy convocation.
Today we celebrate in worship of our God Almighty, Reformation Day which in truth really began in the Garden with God’s call to Adam, “Where are you?’ and set off a Covenant History filled with God’s Christ’s faithfulness towards us, His Bride. Through the generations, watching over us, to sanctify us from this evil age, retrieve us from idols, snares and destroyers, and ready His Bride, His peculiar treasure for the Last Day!

“…even as Christ also loved the Church, and gave Himself for it; that He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word, that He might present it to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.” {Ephesians 5:25b-27 KJV}

Be encouraged in Christ our God, Redeemer and King, in renewing your mind in His will, stirring your heart in Him and of Him at all times.

“Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.”
{Philippians 4:1}

Check out this site which often has insightful posts several time a week.

The Cripplegate had a consistent leadership, but it also would feature guest appearances from notable men. John Milton, John Foxe, Oliver Cromwell, John Bunyan, Richard Baxter, William Cooper, Stephen Charnock, John Owen, Thomas Manton, Thomas Vincent, Thomas Watson, and Matthew Poole all at some point led the morning exercises at the Cripplegate.

Centuries later, students from the pastors college led by Spurgeon resurrected the morning exercises. They took to gathering at the Cripplegate before class to not only imitate the morning exercises of the puritans, but also as a place to discuss and debate contemporary issues in theology. In that sense, it was sort of like a 19th-century blog. For them it became not only a place of prayer and preaching, but a gathering place for like-minded students to have edifying conversations about theology and ministry.

I like the concept.

The Most Important Aspect Of Dealing With False Teachers

This one should be on the top of the list. Have people seriously considered this? Or do we just go along with the crowd., and don’t make waves. Written by a woman who herself deals with a lot of challenges.

“The knowledge of God, of course, comes through His promises, which in turn we find in Scripture. Sadly, this truth is a hard sell these days. Present-day evangelicals often believe that knowing God is more about personal experience of Him.”
