The Terrors of the Law

Recently, a friend ask me to read Ray Comfort's God Has A Wonderful Plan For Your Life.

Now, it is to be noted I have personally been involved in Evangelical Ministries since 1964, resigning my commission in the USMC to "...hasten the coming of the Lord...".

Admittedly, my spirit resonates with the author's stated concerns relative to what seems to be the fruit of "easy believism".

But, in reading the Acts of the Apostles, I am hard pressed to find biblical justification for the author's argument. Save for those instances when an Apostle was addressing a Jewish audience, The Law was never put forth/promoted in the context of the evangelical message.

The Law was never the "tutor" to lead Gentiles to Faith. It was a Tutor for ethnic Israel.

Isaiah 8:20 and 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 is still the standard...not cultural experiences...nor the interpretations of those drinking at the well of Puritans.

Maybe, one ought to consider article 25 of the LBC 1644?

'Nuff said
