It pays to wisely use an Amazon gift card and if there would be a great deal, use it immediately. That’s why I got Total Truth by Nancy R. Pearcey and The Silent Shepherd by John F. MacArthur at a markdown price.
Anyways, here’s some quotes from The Silent Shepherd by John MacArthur. You can buy it at Amazon for $ 0.99 by clicking this link.
“The only perfect mediator who could meet all the qualifications for fair, just, and complete mediation was Jesus Christ, who was both God and man.”
“The danger with an undue stress on the gifts and leading of the Holy Spirit is that personal experience is often elevated over the objective truth of Scripture.”
“…the Holy Spirit’s role is crucial in bringing us to salvation, in empowering us to live our lives in Christ, and in bringing us to ultimate perfection in glory.”
“The Holy Spirit is a person. He is not a mystical force or metaphysical influence. He is a divine person—the third person of the Trinity—and acknowledging that fact is absolutely essential to an orthodox understanding of who He is.”
“God’s gift of the Spirit to us is His verification to us that our salvation will be completed in glorification. It is His promise to give us all the future blessings of that salvation.”
“The phrase “is inspired by God” is a translation of the theologically important Greek word theopneustos, which literally means “God-breathed.” The very use of this term, with the root pneustos closely related to pneuma, “spirit,” strongly implies the Holy Spirit was involved in the entire process of revealing God’s Word.”
“Many people are confused by the term total depravity. It does not mean that all people are as evil as they can possibly be. It means that the principle of sin has pervaded every aspect of human nature. We are corrupted through and through with sin.”
