WWI – Baptist Pastor on the Somme Front

The diary and letters of Pastor James Rowell.

Salvation By Grace Alone

When we speak of Salvation by grace alone, we mean that the Bible says this; every man is a sinner before God. Now we have got to take that seriously. People say well, I am really not a bad person, I don’t drink, I don’t gamble, I don’t steel, I have never committed adultery, I have never murdered etc. etc. These are all good things in a relative sense; I would rather have a neighbor who was kind and decent and good and upright and honest than have some lying rascal next door to me, that I couldn’t turn my back upon. We applaud those social virtues, but before God we are all sinners, we have broken the first and great commandment of the Law of God, which is to love god with all our soul strength and mind. We are all sinners, and not small sinners, but big sinners. We are dead in sin and corrupted in sin, we are self-centered and not God-centered.

Those who boast how good they are have lived their life in rebellion against God and in rejection of His son, trampling the blood of Christ beneath their feet. They live as if the Bible didn’t say the things that it says; that is big time sin.

December 28th, 2017|2 Comments

The Christian has a threefold duty towards a daily interaction with Scripture; to read, to search (John 5:39; Acts 17:11) and to memorize/meditate (John 15:7-8; Colossians 3:16; Joshua 1:8; Proverbs 2:1-6, 7:1-3; Psalm 119:11). The [...]
