Quotes to Consider:
John Gill on Psalm 87:4-6: "... many persons in those several
countries, [will] be born again of water and of the Spirit, of the
corruptible seed of grace, by the ministry of the word; who because
they should be regenerated ... in Zion, therefore are said to be born
there; and besides, being born again, they are admitted members of
Zion, and to all the privileges of Zion, as true-born Israelites; and
are brought up there, are nourished with the sincere milk of the word,
and nursed with the breasts of Gospel ordinances there administered;
and so Zion, or Jerusalem the Gospel church, is truly the mother of
them all, Gal. 4:26."
Herman Witsius: "... it is necessary for every one who acknowledges
Christ as his Lord, to renounce Satan, the world, sin, and even
himself, that he may belong to none but Christ. It is absolutely
impossible to serve at the same time two masters that are so contrary
to one another, and the one of whom, at least, justly demands the
submission of the whole man. Whoever belongs to Christ, doth not
belong to Satan; he is rescued from his tyranny. ‘In time past,’ but
only in time past, he ‘walked according to the prince of the power of
the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.’
He doth not belong to the world; he is ‘delivered from this present
evil world,’ and he has learned that ‘the friendship of the world is
enmity with God’ (The Apostles’ Creed, vol. 1, pp. 359-360).
With joy and thankfulness to God, the Steering Committee heard and
approved the confession of faith of Cherith Crossett. If there are no
lawful objections, her public confession of faith will take place on
the Lord’s Day, 18 July.
