Declaraţii radicale: un lucru imposibil pentru Dumnezeu este…

Un singur lucru e imposibil pentru Dumnezeu: să găsească vreun sens în orice fel de lege a copyright-ului pe planetă.

Only one thing is impossible for God: To find any sense in any copyright law on the planet.

Mark Twain

The Five Solas

The Latin word sola means „alone” or „only.”

The Five Solas are five Latin phrases (or slogans) that emerged during the Protestant Reformation and that summarize the Reformers’ basic theological convictions on what they believed to be the essentials of the Christian life and practice.

The Five Solas are:

 

By faith alone

Justified means that God declares you to be just in His sight by imputing to you the righteousness of Jesus.
And He does that by faith alone: “Since we have been justified by faith.”

Not by works.
Not by tradition.
Not by baptism.
Not by church membership.
Not by piety.
Not by parentage.
But by faith alone.

When we believe in Jesus as the Savior and the Lord and the supreme Treasure of our lives, we are united to Him and His righteousness is counted by God as ours.
We are justified by faith.

John Piper

 

Despre înţelepciune la (pe)trecerea anilor

Psalmi 19:7  Legea Domnului este desăvârşită, şi înviorează sufletul; mărturia Domnului este adevărată şi dă înţelepciune celui neştiutor.

Proverbe 2:6  Căci Domnul dă înţelepciune; din gura Lui iese cunoştinţă şi pricepere.

Proverbe 19:8  Cine capătă înţelepciune, îşi iubeşte sufletul.

1 Corinteni 1:30  El a fost făcut de Dumnezeu pentru noi înţelepciune.

Efeseni 1:17  Şi mă rog ca Dumnezeul Domnului nostru Isus Hristos, Tatăl slavei, să vă dea un duh de înţelepciune!
