LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

I've been puting these writings of H.A. Ironside up after reading them at the Plymouth Brethren site. Wow! His views on repentance are so very similar to mine. It makes me wonder how some so called Free Gracer's would consider him a Free Grace voice from the past. Hmmm.

Thanks for the visit.

Like this from Ironside in chapter 7 -
"In any discussion of the nature and importance of repentance, it would be a great mistake to overlook the fact that children of God may have as much occasion to repent as anyone else. For we should never forget that, after all, saints are sinners. This may seem to be a strange paradox, but both Scripture and experience attest its truthfulness. The closer a believer walks with God, the more he will realize the incurable corruption of his Adamic nature. New birth is not a change of this nature, nor is sanctification a gradual process whereby this nature is purified. New birth is the impartation of a new nature altogether, and practical sanctification is produced by the indwelling Holy Spirit, through the cleansing power of the Word of God, bringing the whole man into conformity to Christ. By the Spirit’s power, in the yielded Christian, the old nature is kept in the place of death."

Hi Mark,

I'm looking forward to reading these posts on repentance.

I have a new post on my blog (http://threeandahalfmiles.blogspot.com/) that I'd love to get your input on. I'm exploring the idea of evangelism.

I'm glad to see you back on the horse and posting again.

In Christ,
Ten Cent

Ten Cent,
Thanks for honoring me with your visit!

Yes I have read and posted seven of his chapters on Repentance thus far. Be my guest and have a look at the links in the previous posts as well as this one. Also check the Plymouth Brethren site these are found on. No, I'm not Plymouth Brethren, but I do like some of their stuff.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for inviting me to comment here. If I ever get back to blogging you are welcome on my blog as well. Sorry about the little spat we had during the FG storm that passed through. My nerves were a little wired back then so I wasn't in the mood for a LS debate. In fact, I'm pretty much burnt out on blog debates of any kind. It takes about 10 hrs to discuss something on a blog that would take only 30 minutes face to face, so it's just too much work...especially if you type a slow as me. Plus, the more people that get involved the more confusing and complicated things get. I'm sure you've experienced the same exasperation yourself.

As for your quote of Ironside (Chap 7) in the above comment, I totally agree with him there. I don't see anything there I would disagree with. I've read some of the other articles you've posted by him on repentance and I have some differences with him on some things he says. As far as my overall view on repentance I think "Harmony with God" by Zane Hodges is the most biblical view of that subject I've come across. I know that doesn't surprise you but that's just my opinion.

Anyway, I hope things are going well for you and I hope we can be friends. Like I said, if I ever find time to do anything with my blog you are welcome to come kick it around a little. I think the Lord has shown me some things I need to change and do differently if I ever take it up again. But right now I'm up to my neck in personal business I have to take care of. I made a couple of comments over at UoG today, but that's all I've done in the last 2 or 3 weeks. What little free time time I have I'm using for my own personal study. There's always much to learn isn't there? The more I learn the less I think I know! :)

By the way, I agree with some things you write more often than you might think...is that progress or what? ;)

God bless,
