The Doctor: The False Humility of Unbelief

I must press this point.  To be uncertain of these things is not a sign of humility or of unusual spirituality and piety; it is a sign of unbelief, which is dishonoring to God… I do not hesitate to make the assertion that the only bit of logic that you and I can be absolutely certain of in this world is the logic of verses 9, 10, 11 in this chapter [Chapter 5 of Romans].  There is no such watertight argument in any other realm, in science, or in mathematics or anywhere else… I know that there is one argument that can never be refuted, and that will never fail one iota.  It is this: “If while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved (in him and) in his life.  That can never fail; it is absolutely certain.  This is the only logic that can be guaranteed.   – D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones in Romans Volume 4, p. 165

  1. Good stuff from the Doctor. Thanks.

    I am sitting here looking at your reading list to the right, over there —->

    Dude, do you want to borrow one of my ‘Calvin and Hobbes’? Seriously, sometimes you need a little ‘Calvin’ and I aint talking about ‘Calvin 1509’.

    What do you say? Put a little tiger in your tank…. do you some good.


    1. Yes I would love to borrow your book… and step on it! (David devastated one of my books he borrowed, I am over it, but it is fun to salt the wound.)

      More so I would love to see ‘1509 Calvin’ catechize Calvin.


  2. You left out the most important part of devastating a book — you must keep it in excess of 6 months, first out of sheer embarrassment for what you did to it, then out of continuing embarrassment that you’ve had it for over 6 months.
