    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

Let Us Sing of Electing Love

From the pen of Josiah Conder:

Let us sing of electing love:

“Tis not that I did choose Thee,

For, Lord, that could not be;

This heart would still refuse Thee,

But Thou hast chosen me.


My heart owns none before Thee;

For thy rich grace I thirst;

This knowing, if I love Thee,

Thou must have loved me first.”

An Increase In Sin?

Christopher Love



From the desk of Christopher Love:

Many men, after a long conversion, see more of the workings of sin in their hearts than ever they did before or at their first conversion. Now, such men have not an increase of sin, but an increase of illumination and light. (Love, The Mortified Christian, 47)

Silent Sins

John Donne, one of the most famous Metaphysica...

John Donne

Quoting John Donne:

“Men perish with whispering sins–nay, with silent sins, sins that never tell the conscience that they are sins, as often with crying sins; and in hell there shall meet as many men that never thought what was sin, as that spent all their thoughts in the compassing of sin.”
