Gleanings 9-21-15

Always respond to every impulse to pray. I would make an absolute law of this – always obey such an impulse. Where does it come from? It is the work of the Holy Spirit; it is a part of the meaning of ‘Work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure’ (Phil 2:12-13). Such a call to prayer must never be regarded as a distraction; always respond to it immediately, and thank God if it happens to you frequently. --Martin Lloyd-Jones

Toleration has arisen not out of high-minded rational motivations but out of frustrated selfishness and self-interest. In a large republic, factions proliferate so much that no one faction can impose its fanaticism on everyone else. To protect their own interests, they all must, grudgingly, protect everyone’s. --Laurence Moore

Christendom - the infusion of the gospel into the cultural life of a people. --Peter Leithart

“As a Christian, I am committed to a worldview that comes from the Bible: God the Creator, the world as his creation, man made in his image, sin and its consequences as our predicament, Christ’s atonement as our salvation, his return as the consummation of all things.”--John Frame

Donald Trump has favored higher taxes, has opposed the ban of partial-birth abortion, has spoken favorably of socialized medicine, and has been an erstwhile booster of Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton. So then, why, oh conservative would you even consider voting for the man?? He's a poser!
