Diminishing the creation and the Creator

The Exalted View of God in Scripture

by Ronnie Rogers, pastor

Trinity Baptist Church
Norman, Okla.

The nature and attributes of God are seen not only in His person, but in His creation as well. We are reminded, “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20). The Old Testament declares the same truth in Psalm 19:1.

The heart and desire of Calvinists is to exalt, honor, and glorify God. However, Calvinism’s endeavor to exalt God by emphasizing compatibilism,[1] monergism, unconditional election, passive or active reprobation, and selective regeneration actually results in the antithesis of their desire.

The “Sinner’s Prayer” makes another disciple

A little girl walked the aisle Sunday evening with her daddy during the altar call to tell me that she said the “Sinner’s Prayer” on Thursday night. Christ died for her, as well as for all the world. She will be baptized by immersion very soon. She said a sinner’s prayer. Her father received the joy of leading her in that prayer. God is good. I am thankful to be able to say with a clear conscience from the Word of God to all sinners that Christ died for them. I am thankful to see God continue to use altar calls. I am thankful to have Traditional, Southern Baptist convictions. I am thankful for the calling to ministry. I am just plain thankful. I will stop typing now…I am just a little excited.
