Puritan Belief

The Puritans are the men of God who started in the 16th century building on the purity of the gospel message that Salvation is by Grace alone.

Sins Have Been Covered

Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will not take into account. (Romans 4)

There is no greater hope for the sinner then this: His Sin, the Lord will not take into account on the day of judgment. This is his only hope because other then this there is no hope for the sinner because the moment one of his sins, small or large be raised against him then his shoulders will lower, his countenance will fall and words will fail him.

Sins Have Been Covered

The hope of the sinner is that his sins have been covered. The only way they can be covered is by Christ paying in full for their sins which is the basis of Justification. Not that his sins are forgotten or dismissed or pardoned. For if they were forgotten what if they were remembered and if they were dismissed what if they were re-admitted or if they were pardoned what if the pardon did not last?

The sin must be covered this means every sin must be covered past and future. The only way to do this is in death. For we know that the brunt of the law must end in death for the penalty must be paid. This is where the new-birth comes in when Jesus died so does the Christian with him and when Jesus rose so does the Saint who is now Sanctified, (Saint is derived from Sanctified) Glorified and Justified. Our Sins have been covered because the death which the Law demands was covered by the penalty of the cruelest death on record that of Christ who took away the sins of the world.

When Jesus died there was a problem. A big problem one never to have been encountered since its institution. This problem is that the Law got a totally innocent and pure man. Instead of getting the sinner they got the Lord God Almighty and Death could not hold him down how could it? He was not guilty yet he was punished therefore he rose again and we as the Christian rise with him in glory and the Law has no mastery over us for we are slaves now to Christ.

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no
