Terry’s Pastor on Judgement

This was too good for just a comment box! :0

You will enjoy my brief synopsis of our pastor’s explanation of justification and what the cross bought for us from Sunday’s service:

Imagine you died. You’re brought before a large judicial bench, where The Father sits awaiting to tell you your eternal destiny. The prosecution, if you will, calls 3 witnesses. The first is the law, which condemns you outright. And that’s based on the law you broke even after coming into relationship with the Father. The second witness is Satan, the accuser of the brethren, who for the first time in his lying life tells the truth about how no good you are. The third witness is your conscience, which also condemns you as it testifies to the times it tried to implore you to do the right thing and you ignored it so much it became seared. Your doom seems set. Until the only hope you have steps forward. Your Defense Attorney/Propitiation/Mediator all in one rises not to defend you (we have no defense) but to proclaim that your guilt was imputed to Him, and His innocence conferred upon you according to the terms that the Judge set Himself. Your faith in Him justifies you, and you are freed from the curse you rightfully deserve according to the law, the accuser, and even your conscience.

Why anyone would choose the law over a deal like that is truly beyond me!

Conscience & God’s Law – Fortner

Your conscience is the undying echo of God’s holy law in your soul.

Mock and laugh if you dare; but you know that is the truth. You may never acknowledge it this side of eternity; but you do not even question that fact. You know it is so. Your conscience is the undying echo of God’s holy law in your soul.

If I am not mistaken, conscience is the most powerful part of our constitution as moral creatures. Conscience cannot save anyone. Conscience can never bring anyone to Christ. Every man’s conscience is, by reason of sin, blind, ignorant and misdirected. Yet, the conscience raises a loud testimony and protest in the soul against sin. It makes the guilty soul uneasy. It causes the transgressor to tremble. It is the consciousness of guilt and sin that causes all men to fear death, judgment and eternity.
