Pristine Grace

I Marvel That You Are So Soon Removed

I Marvel That You Are So Soon Removed

I marvel that you are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel; which is NOT another, but there be some that trouble you and would pervert the gospel of Christ. - Gal 1:6-7

If thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt NOT build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast POLLUTED it. Exodus 20:25

     Any perversion of the absolute free sovereign grace of God in the gospel of Christ is an abomination unto our Great God. Whether it be molding the altar stones to our liking to suit our demands, or putting anything of self to the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ on Calvary, God is not honored in it nor will He be tolerant of it.

     Some perversions are very obvious, while others are much more subtle, but the end result is the same. It is polluted by man and the stamp of ‘unacceptable’ is upon it. Oh, how I need your prayers as I stand here to proclaim the wonder and mystery of ‘Christ and Him crucified’. Oh, how I need your ears to ‘take heed how you hear as well as to what you hear’. I am thankful that by the grace of God and faith in His blood that you have not these many, many years tried to add one thing to that perfect altar, that sinless Redeemer! Oh, may He keep us here together, serving Him, worshipping at His footstool and rejoicing in that one and only Sacrifice for sinners: Jesus The Christ!
