B003D0TAM8.01._SX490_SCLZZZZZZZ_V190274968_You have heard me say many times that while the law directs it in no way empowers obedience. Grace does. Tullian reminds us of this truth. The shortest path to obedience is grace.

Eschatology is certainly one of the areas where evangelicals disagree. Why is this? Usually it comes down to two hermeneutical issues. The first is the question of whether a passage is symbolic or not. If a passage is meant to be one way, literal for example, and we interpret the other way we will get the passage wrong every time. The second issue is how the New Testament reshapes Old Testament promises. Some see that it doesn’t; others understand that the shadowy promises of the Old Testament look radically different under the full light of the New Testament. R. Scott Clark touches on both of these issues in helpful way in this fairly short piece.

Finally, R. C. Sproul’s Critical Questions books are all free in the Kindle format.
