Penal substitution

leave a comment »

Martin Downes has been waxing strong concerning penal substitution in recent days: he gives us Warfield & Machen on the same; some gold from Herman Bavinck; thoughts on the victory over Satan; makes some helpful connections with the broader Biblical narrative; and, addresses its relationship to divine love.  All good and insightful stuff.

Update: John Owen and Martin Luther have joined the gang.

Penal substitution

leave a comment »

Adrian Warnock draws attention to the latest pronouncements of Steve Chalke on the atonement, and specifically his definite and definitive rejection of penal substitution.

“We sing the grace of God above”

leave a comment »

Niagara  L.M.

We sing the grace of God above,
Of boundless goodness, boundless love;
The story on our hearts engraved
Of sins forgiven, of sinners saved.

Here justice, mercy, wisdom shine –
The outworked plan of grace divine.
In Jesus Christ the cords all meet,
In Christ we see the plan complete.

And did this Christ come from on high,
This sinful soul to justify?
Yes, our Redeemer left his throne
And came to earth to claim his own.

And shall I come to heaven above?
‘Tis all of grace and all of love
That Christ should live and die for me,
And set my soul at liberty.

He died for us, our sins to atone;
He died to make us each his own,
And soon we join our Christ on high:
Elect, redeemed, and glorified.

Then lift your hearts to speak his praise –
The wonders of his matchless grace!
This humble gift we gladly bring:
The praises of our Saviour King.

“Give me one glimpse of my sin and my shame”

leave a comment »

Slane 10 10. 10 10

Give me one glimpse of my sin and my shame;
Each is my own, there are none else to blame.
All are so burdensome, darker than night,
Each bringing nothing but death as my right.

Show me the depth of my fallen estate,
Beaten and crushed with this terrible weight;
God’s law the light that exposes my sin:
Helpless without and unrighteous within.

Give me one glimpse of my Christ on the tree –
Bleeding, and suffering, and dying for me.
Undeserved mercy, unmerited love,
Poured out, unasked for, from heaven above.

Show me how far he descended for me,
Punished for sin so that I might go free.
All I could offer was my wickedness
And in return he gave his righteousness.

Christ broke my chains and he freed me from shame;
Now my desire is to go in his Name:
Let my whole being now thunder abroad
The joy to be found in the way of the Lord.

“How can this guilty sinner flee”

leave a comment »

Godre’r Coed C.M.

How can this guilty sinner flee
The judgement that is mine?
How can a wretched man escape
The punishment divine?

Tell me where wrath and mercy meet;
Show me God reconciled.
Where can a rebel find true peace,
Rest for a heart so wild?

Come, take the path to Calvary,
Climb up her shadowed side:
This is the way that Jesus went,
This is where Jesus died.

This is where Christ poured out his blood;
This is where peace begins;
This is where wrath and mercy meet:
Pardon for all our sins.

Here is the wisdom of our God,
And here his power divine;
Here is a full atonement made,
And righteousness does shine.

Sinner, would you escape God’s wrath?
Would you be truly blessed?
Here God in Christ is reconciled;
Here is eternal rest.
