Gleanings 9-23-15

The church is no longer seen as the palace of the King of Kings, nor as the world’s law-center and mercy seat. It is a social center instead, ministering to human needs by a variety of sociological and psychological means. The church works to make people feel “at home” rather than in the presence of the King by His grace. RJR

How we use our tongue  is perhaps the clearest and most explicit measure of the value of our “religion” and our devotion to Jesus. - Sam Storms

 Herman Bavinck said in The Doctrine of God, “In the confession of the Trinity throbs the heart of the Christian religion. Every error results from, or upon deeper reflection, may be traced to a view of this doctrine.” Get the Trinity wrong and you get Christianity wrong.
