And he said, Take now they son, thine only son Isaac, whom thow lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of. Genesis 22:2 KJVWhen we speak of the limited atonement, what we are saying is that Christ died for an elect people as their substitute, and that each and every one of them for whom he died will be saved. Most would agree that this event on Mount Moriah is a picture of the atonement...

I have to confess that I almost didn’t watch it.There were two reasons for my reluctance. First, I am not a fan of either Teddy or FDR as presidents. The former was guilty of a lust for war and domestic strongman tendencies, and the latter tragically prolonged the Great Depression. Second, I had watched a one-hour preview...

‘We’re drinking from the saucer…’

My grandparents’ generation used to “saucer” their coffee to cool it. In fact, many tea drinkers did the same thing. They didn’t use a mug like I do. They poured some of their “piping hot” coffee from the cup into a saucer, swirled it around, savored the aroma and drank it down.
