Top Highlights

“Sin works its own punishment. When persistently followed, it hardens the heart, deadens the conscience, atrophies faith, and plunges the sinner to ever-increasing depths so that repentance (except by a miracle of God’s grace) becomes impossible. These are the natural consequences of waywardness, but they are also in accordance with God’s eternal law.” (Page 57)

“earnest believers do not invest the time needed to develop a Biblical approach to life.” (Page 35)

“God’s intent for Israel’s kings to foreshadow the reign of the Lord Jesus Christ” (Page 23)

“himself. Scripture knows nothing of the divine right of kings. When” (Page 22)
