Of Adoption

of adoption

The doctrine of adoption in the order of salvation reveals God's glory. J I. Packer said of adoption that it is "the highest privilege that the gospel offers".1 John Murray offered similar sentiments when he wrote that adoption is the "apex of grace and privilege" in the gospel.2 Murray continued to point out that the grace of adoption is inconceivable had God not revealed...

Are Criminals Born or Made?

criminals born

This question has been under consideration for some time. Mostly by the cultural and intellectual elites of varying disciplines. The common man has tried to come up with answers to this query as well but most of us have settled for the answers from the above-mentioned intellectuals. Because of this, we have in effect taken for granted that the study of the human mind and h...

Are You Sure?

are you sure

"Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' 23 And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, y...

What is the Gospel?

What is the Gospel_

For those who are pondering on the title, I urge you not to be dissuaded by its simplicity. Simple questions are usually the most profound and this one is the most important question in the world. I sincerely believe this simple question needs to be revisited and answered by Churches today in Trinidad and Tobago and the wider Caribbean. How do most believers think about t...
