【引用 救丞論-聖徒の堅忍】 J.F.MacArthur, Jr

今年より、勉強中の各種資料における重要文章の引用を、記録のためにアップすることにしました。これまでと同じく、著作権法第32条「引用」に準じておこなっていきます。解説抜きの場合が多々あると思いますが、「こんな方面の資料をよんでいるのかあ」程度にご参考下さい。引用内容にご意見、ご質問がある方は、コメントしてくださっても結構ですが、詳しく知りたい方は著者に直接お聞き下さい(あくまで著者の文章の引用ですので)。

MacArthur, Jr. John F. "Perserverance of the Saints." Master's Seminary Journal. 4:1. 5-23. より


Quantification of how much failure the doctrine of perseverance allows is impossible, but Jesus did prescribe a way for the church to deal with a professing believer whose life sin had seemingly come to dominate. (5)


This divine choice makes it certain that we shall be like Him when He appears (1John 3:2). From this fact, John deduces that everyone who has this hope in him purifies himseld just as Christ is pure (1John 3:3). His use of teh word "everyone" makes it quite ceratain that those who do not purify themselves will not see Christ, nor be like HIm. By their lack of holiness they porve that they were not so predestinated. The apostle thus deals a crushing blow to Antinomianism. (13-14)


Certainly no individual can judge another's heart [...] But though individual Christians must never be judgmental, the church body as a wholevery definitely has a responsiblity to amintain purity by exposing and excommunicating those who live in continual sin or defection from the faith [...] "let him be to you as a Gentile and a atax-gatherer" (Matt 18:17). In other words, pursue that person for Christ evangelistically as if he or she were utterly unsaved.


The Lord said that He Himself works personally in the discipline process: "For where two or three have gathered together in My name, there I am in their midst" (Matt 18:20) [...] How long can a person continue in sin before fellow Christians "conclude that [he or she] was never really saved?" All the way through the discipline process. Once the matter has been told to the church, if the person still refuses to repent, Christinas have instructions from the Lord Himself to regard the sinning one "as a Gentile and a tax-gatherer." The church discipline process outlined in Matthew 18 is predicated on teh doctrine of perseverance. (24)



聖徒の堅忍と教会会規・・・、実務に直結する学びだけに慎重に進めたいなあ、と思う今日この頃です。
