The Law of God Versus the Law of Man and An Introduction to the Ten Commandments (God's Law Is Full of Grace), by Dr. F.N. Lee (Free MP3) 

 
If ye love me, keep my commandments. - John 14:15, KJV

 

To be Christians under the law of grace does not mean to wander unbridled outside the law, but to be engrafted in Christ, by whose grace we are free from the curse of the law, and by whose Spirit we have the law engraved upon our hearts." - John Calvin, on the Puritan Hard Drive  

If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. - John 15:10, KJV 


#101 Westminster Confession 19:6 God's Law Is A Rule For Knowing the Will of God, by Pastor Jim Dodson (Free SWRB MP3 & PDF)

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. - John 14:21, KJV.  

 

 The ten commands being the substance of the law of nature, a representation of God's image, and a beam of his holiness, behoved for ever unalterably to be a rule of life to mankind, in all possible states, conditions, and circumstances; nothing but the utter destruction of human nature, and its ceasing to be, could divest them of that office, since God is unchanging in his image and holiness. Hence, their being a rule of life to Adam and his posterity, had no dependence on their becoming the covenant of works; but they would have been that rule, though there never had been any such covenant: yea, whatever covenant was introduced, whether of works or of grace, whatever form might be put upon them, they behoved still to remain the rule of life; no covenant, no form whatsoever, could ever prejudice this their royal dignity. Now, whether this state of the matter, or their being the covenant of works, which was merely accessory to them, and might never have been at all, is the firmer foundation, to build their being a rule of life upon, is no hard question to determine.- Edward Fisher, The Marrow of Modern Divinity, 217 of 450, on the Puritan Hard Driveand free online here.   

Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law. - Romans 3:31 (KJV)

For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. - 1 John 5:3. KJV

The Perpetuity of the Law of God, by Charles Spurgeon, Thomas Watson, et al.

 

Thus our author has proved, that the law of the ten commandments is a rule of life to believers; and hath vindicated Luther and Calvin from the opposite Antinomian error, as he does Musculus also, in the following words: and that from their express declarations, in their own words. And here is the conclusion of the whole matter. To show the judgment of other orthodox Protestant divines, on this head, against the Antinomians, it will not be amiss to adduce a passage out of a system of divinity, commonly put into the hands of students not very many years ago, I am sure.

"It is one thing [says Turretine, disputing against the Antinomians] to be under the law as a covenant; another thing, to be under the law as a rule of life. In the former sense, Paul says, 'That we are not under the law, but under grace,' (Rom 6:14), as to its covenant relation, curse, and rigour; but in the latter sense we always remain bound unto it, though for a different end; for in the first covenant man was to do this, to the end that he might live; but in the other, he is bound to perform the same thing, not that he may live, but because he lives." Turret. loc. 11. quest. 24, thes. 7.

Matthew Poole RevelationSteven Dilday Translation.JPG View again, Westm. Confess. chap. 19,art. 6. Hereunto agreeth our author's conclusion, viz: That believers are no otherwise, not any otherwise delivered from the law of the ten commandments, but as they are the covenant of works. Now, how can those who oppose Antinomianism, on this head, contradict the author thereupon but by asserting, "That believers are not delivered from the law, as it is the covenant of works, but that they are still under the power of the covenant of works"? The which are principles as opposite to the received doctrine of orthodox Protestant divines and to the Confession of Faith, as they are to the doctrine of our author.[5]

Q97: What special use is there of the moral law to the regenerate?
 

A97: Although they that are regenerate, and believe in Christ,be delivered from the moral law as a covenant of works,[1] so as thereby they are neither justified [2] nor condemned;[3] yet, besides the general uses thereof common to them with all men, it is of special use, to show them how much they are bound to Christ for his fulfilling it, and enduring the curse thereof in their stead, and for their good;[4] and thereby to provoke them to more thankfulness,[5] and to express the same in their greater care to conform themselves thereunto as the rule of their obedience.[6]

When the First Table Of God's Law Falls Serious Judgments Follow, Related To Violations Of Both the First and Second Tables of God Law, by Dr. Steven Dilday (Free MP3) 

Summary: A fascinating and fearful sermon about how violations of commandments one to four inevitably lead to violations of commandments five to ten. The ultimate result being atrocities like the wanton murder of pre-born babies (abortion -- and even the selling of the physical parts of these murdered children by satanic groups like Planned Parenthood), same-sex marriage, etc. Ignoring and violating the first table of God's law destroys individuals, families, churches and nations.

A. The sins forbidden in the first commandment are, atheism, in denying or not having a God; idolatry, in having or worshipping more gods than one, or any with or instead of the true God; the not having and avouching him for God, and our God;the omission or neglect of anything due to him, required in this commandment; ignorance, forgetfulness, misapprehensions, false opinions, unworthy and wicked thoughts of him; bold and curious searching into his secrets; all profaneness, hatred of God; self-love, self-seeking, and all other inordinate and immoderate setting of our mind, will, or affections upon other things, and taking them off from him in whole or in part; vain credulity, unbelief, heresy, misbelief, distrust, despair, incorrigibleness, and insensibleness under judgments, hardness of heart, pride, presumption, carnal security, tempting of God; using unlawful means, and trusting in lawful means; carnal delights and joys; corrupt, blind, and indiscreet zeal; lukewarmness, and deadness in the things of God; estranging ourselves, and apostatizing from God; praying, or giving any religious worship, to saints, angels, or any other creatures; all compacts and consulting with the devil, and hearkening to his suggestions; making men the lords of our faith and conscience; slighting and despising God and his commands; resisting and grieving of his Spirit, discontent and impatience at his dispensations, charging him foolishly for the evils he inflicts on us; and ascribing the praise of any good we either are, have or can do, to fortune, idols, ourselves, or any other creature.

Pornography, the Anabaptists, and Doug Wilson's Civil Antinomianism by Dr. Reg Barrow (Free Online)

"Alexander Karelin was one of the most devastating wrestlers to ever live. His most impressive display of power was when he would lift 300+ pound opponents from flat off the the ground and reintroduce their necks and collar bones to the mat with crushing force. The move was nicknamed "The Karelin Lift". With parallel might, Reg Barrow's writings, which IMO are the best available writings anywhere representing true historical Presbyterian Principles regarding issues of authority, the church, and the state, have ripped the Americanist Pseudo-Reformed systems of Theology to shreds. In his work Pornography, The Anabaptists And Doug Wilson's Civil Antinomianism he clearly shows the primary fallacy of the Modern Theonomist movement and in so doing gives an exposition of the historical Puritan Theonomy which is nothing short of the ancient Patriarchal Establishmentarianism so common with human societies in the history of the world.

 

Barrow places his finger on the primary error of this system,

 

To begin with, on the pornography question Wilson (and other modern Theonomists) apply a form of "regulativism" (really "hyper-regulativism"; see below) where it does not belong - i.e. in the case of negative civil sanctions. Ironically, many of these same people also deny (if only by their practice; James 1:22; Titus 1:16) the true regulativism where Scripture teaches it does belong - i.e. in the public worship of God. 

 

The rest of his work is an exposition of this very mistake and at the end of his work he lists some devastating questions that the Modern Theonomist cannot answer:"

For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Vindiciae Legis: or, A Vindication of the Moral Law and the Covenants, from the Errors of Papists, Arminians, Socinians, and more especially, Antinomians (1647) by Anthony Burgess (Digital Download, SWRB PDF)

"A nonconformist clergyman," Anthony Burgess "was a member of the (Westminster) Assembly of Divines. Ejected at the Restoration... his works are much valued and have become very scarce" (James Darling, Cyclopedia Bibliographica, p. 439). This book contains 30 lectures preached at London "against the antinomian errours of the times." It is the second edition corrected and augmented.

John Calvin Color Graphic
JOHN CALVIN

Again, because we need not only teaching but also exhortation, the servant of God will also avail himself of this benefit of the law: by frequent meditation upon it to be aroused to obedience, be strengthened in it, and be drawn back from the slippery path of transgression. In this way the saints must press on; for, however eagerly they may in accordance with the Spirit strive toward God's righteousness, the listless flesh always so burdens them that they do not proceed with due readiness. The Law is to the flesh like a whip to an idle and balky ass (donkey - ed.), to arouse it to work. ... But here the prophet proclaims the great usefulness of the law: the Lord instructs by their reading of it those whom he inwardly instills with a readiness to obey. He lays hold not only of the precepts, but the accompanying promise of grace, which alone sweetens what is bitter. For what would be less lovable than the law if, with importuning and threatening alone, it troubled souls through fear, and distressed them through fright? David especially shows that in the law he apprehended the Mediator, without whom there is no delight or sweetness. ... Whoever wants to do away with the law entirely for the faithful, understands it falsely.

Antinomianism by James Henley Thornwell (Digital Download, Enhanced SWRB PDF)

 

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

 

- The Lord Jesus Christ, John 14:21 (KJV)


A Survey of the Spiritual Antichrist Opening the Secrets of Familisme and Antinomianism in the Antichristian Doctrine of John Saltmarth, and William Del, the present Preachers of the Army (headed by Oliver Cromwell--RB) now in England, and of Robert Town, Tobiah Crisp, H. Denne, Eaton and others. In which is revealed the rise and spring of Antinomianism, Familists, Libertines, Swench-feldians, Enthysiasts, etc. The minde of Luther a most professed opposer of Antinomianism, is cleared, and diverse considerable points of the Law and the Gospel, of the Spirit and the Letter, of the two Covenants, of the nature of free grace, exercise under temptations, mortification, justification, sanctification, are discovered. In Two parts (1648) by Samuel Rutherford (Digital Download, SWRB PDF)

The Antinomians were a major sect in the 1640's. They denounced as 'Legalists' the Christians who, like Paul, 'serve the law of God' (Rom. 7:25). They asserted that grace removes the Law out of the Christian's life, as absolutely as it does out of his salvation. This dangerous heresy, which is still popular, makes it no fault to disobey God's Moral Law, and turn grace into wantonness. Rutherford mentioned this heresy in several of his works before publishing in 1648 his SURVEY OF THE SPIRITUAL ANTICHRIST, written specifically against the Antinomians. The subtlety of Antinomians is that they oppose the use of the Law as a positive standard for holy living in the name of the Gospel! The Apostle Paul repudiated this error in Rom. 3:31; 6:1,2; Gal. 5:13" (p. 52).

 

Christ Dying, and Drawing Sinners to Himself, Or, A Survey of our Saviour in His Soul-Suffering, His Loveliness in his Death, and the Efficacy thereof. In Which Some Cases of Soul-trouble in weak Believers, Grounds of Submission under the Absence of Christ, with the Flowings and Heightenings of free Grace, are opened. Delivered in Sermons on the Gospel according to John, Chap. xii. ver. 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33. Where are also interjected some necessary Digressions, for the Times, touching divers Errors of Antinomians; and a short Vindication of the Doctrine of Protestants, from the Arminian pretended Universality of Christ's Dying for All and every One of Mankind; the moral and feigned Way of irresistible Conversion of Sinners; and what Faith is required of all within the visible Church, for the Want whereof, many are condemned (1647, 1727 edition) (Digital Download, SWRB PDF)

The Dictionary of Scottish Church History and Theology says of this work, "Samuel Rutherford's writings during the London years provide a significant commentary of the theology of the Westminster Confession and Catechisms. In Christ Dying and Drawing Sinners to Himsel Rutherford elaborately scrutinizes the Antinomian notion that the law has no obligation for the Christian" (p. 736). This book contains an extensive index, is 764 pages in length and is an excellent example of sound and faithful Covenanter preaching, balancing both faith (doctrine) and manners (practice).

 

Gun-Control-Poster If we love our PLEASURE more than God, we make a god (idol - ed.) of it. "Lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God." 2 Tim 3:4. Many let loose the reins, and give themselves up to all manner of sensual delights; they idolize pleasure. "They take the timbrel, and the harp, and rejoice at the sound of the organ. They spend their days in mirth." Job 21:12, 13. I have read of a place in Africa, where the people spend all their time in dancing and making merry; and have not we many who make a god of pleasure, who spend their time in going to plays and visiting ball-rooms, as if God had made them like the leviathan, to play in the water? Psalm 104:26. In the country of Sardinia there is a certain herb, that if any one eats too much of it, he will die laughing: such a herb is pleasure, if anyone feeds immoderately on it, he will go laughing to hell. Let such as make a god of pleasure read but these two Scriptures. "The heart of fools is in the house of mirth." Eccl 7:4. "She has lived in luxury and pleasure, so match it now with torments and sorrows." Rev 18:7. Sugar laid in a damp place turns to water; so all the sugared joys and pleasures of sinners will turn to the water of tears at last.

 

If we love our BELLY more than God, we make a god (idol - ed.) of it. "Whose god is their belly." Phil 3:19. Clemens Alexandrinus writes of a fish that had its heart in its belly; an emblem of epicures, whose heart is in their belly; their belly is their god, and to this god they pour drink offerings. The Lord allows what is fitting for the recruiting of nature. "I will send grass, that you may eat and be full." Deut 11:15. But to mind nothing but the indulging of the appetite, is idolatry."Whose god is their belly." What pity is it, that the soul, that princely part, which sways the scepter of reason and is akin to angels, should be enslaved to the brutish part!

 

If we love a CHILD more than God, we make a god (idol - ed.) of it. How many are guilty in this kind? They think more of their children, and delight more in them than in God; they grieve more for the loss of their first-born, than for the loss of their first love. This is to make an idol of a child, and to set it in God's place. Thus God is often provoked to take away our children. If we love the jewel more than him who gave it, God will take away the jewel, that our love may return to him again.

On The Mortification of Sin in Believers by John Owen (6 Free MP3)

 

Let our hearts admit, 'I am poor and weak. Satan is too subtle, too cunning, too powerful; he watches constantly for advantages over my soul. The world presses in upon me with all sorts of pressures, pleas, and pretences. My own corruption is violent, tumultuous, enticing, and entangling. As it conceives sin, it wars within me and against me. Occasions and opportunities for temptation are innumerable. No wonder I do not know how deeply involved I have been with sin. Therefore, on God alone will I rely for my keeping. I will continually look to Him.'

That God justifies he sanctifies, if you are not being sanctified you are not saved. How much are we living in prayer and communion with the God we will be spending eternity with, is sin keeping us from this reality? If the Lord should bring a wicked man to heaven, heaven would be hell to him; for he who loves not grace upon earth will never love it in heaven.

Let this be your grand request, a self-denying frame of heart. Self-denial does not grow in nature, it is a fruit of the Spirit. Beg God that he will plant this heavenly flower in your soul.


Say 'Lord, whatever Thou deniest me, deny me not self-denial. Let me rather lack great parts, nay, let me rather lack the comforts of the Spirit than self-denial.'


There may be going to heaven without comfort, but there is no going there without self-denial.

How the Lord Jesus Christ Cleanses the Temple of Your Heart by Dr. Steven Dilday, With Other Free Reformed Resources On Salvation & Sanctification (Free Reformation Resources)

  

I. They, who are once effectually called, and regenerated, having a new heart, and a new spirit created in them, are further sanctified, really and personally, through the virtue of Christ's death and resurrection, by His Word and Spirit dwelling in them: the dominion of the whole body of sin is destroyed, and the several lusts thereof are more and more weakened and mortified; and they more and more quickened and strengthened in all saving graces, to the practice of true holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.

  

II. This sanctification is throughout, in the whole man; yet imperfect in this life, there abiding still some remnants of corruption in every part; whence arises a continual and irreconcilable war, the flesh lusting against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh.

  

III. In which war, although the remaining corruption, for a time, may much prevail; yet, through the continual supply of strength from the sanctifying Spirit of Christ, the regenerate part does overcome; and so, the saints grow in grace, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

The Holiness of God by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Paul Washer, Stephen Charnock, A.W. Pink, et al. (Free Reformation Videos, MP3s, etc.)

 

Sin is cosmic treason. Sin is the treason against a perfectly pure Sovereign. It is an act of supreme ingratitude toward the One to whom we owe everything, to the One who has given us life itself.

 

- Dr. R.C. Sproul, The Holiness of God, p. 116, emphases added

Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

Fanning the Flame of Your First Love by Greg Price (Free MP3 and Video on Sermonaudio)

  

Christ is the very essence of all delights and pleasures, the very soul and substance of them. As all the rivers are gathered into the ocean, which is the meeting-place of all the waters in the world, so Christ is that ocean in which all true delights and pleasures meet.

  

- John Flavel (on the Puritan Hard Drive)

  

Fanning the Flame of Your First Love by Greg Price (Free Video on YouTube)

  

If believers decay in their first love, or in some other grace, yet another grace may grow and increase, such as humility, their brokenheartedness; they sometimes seem not to grow in the branches when they may grow at the root; upon a check grace breaks out more; as we say, after a hard winter there usually follows a glorious spring.

  

- Richard Sibbes (on the Puritan Hard Drive)

  

Letters To The Seven Churches: 'Thou Hast Left Thy First Love' (12 of 15) by Jeff Pollard (Free MP3)

  

Are you content to follow Jesus from a distance? O, let me affectionately warn you for it is a grievous thing when we can live contentedly without the present enjoyment of the Savior's face. Let us work to feel what an evil thing this is -- little love to our own dying Savior, little joy in our precious Jesus, little fellowship with the Beloved! Hold a true Lent in your souls, while you sorrow over your hardness of heart. Don't stop at sorrow. Remember where you first received salvation. Go at once to the cross. There, and there only can you get your spirit aroused. No matter how hard, how insensible, how dead we may have become, let's go again in all the rags and poverty, and defilement of our natural condition. Let's clasp that cross, let's look into those languid eyes, let's bathe in that fountain filled with blood -- this will bring us back to our first love; this will restore the simplicity of our faith, and the tenderness of our hearts. The more we dwell where the cries of Calvary can be heard the more noble our lives become. Nothing puts life into men like a dying Savior.

I Will Never Leave Thee, Nor Forsake Thee by C.H. Spurgeon (Free MP3)

  

Scott Brown: Hey, Reg. I was just talking to my friend Ashif Rau, he's a college student in New York, and we were talking about the Puritans. I was quoting the Puritans all through my sermon today, and he was telling me about, about his experience with the Puritan Hard Drive. So what's the deal with the Puritan Hard Drive?

  

College Student: The Puritan Hard Drive is excellent. It's got a search function that's unparalleled. You can find anything you want [inaudible]. There's dozens of works on family worship, dozens of works on the purity of God's worship, church government, church history. We were talking about a book on the Puritan view of law, and all of the footnotes you could find it on the Puritan Hard Drive. This is great. Everyone has to buy it. It's one of the greatest tools for reformation in the church. I think it's an investment for every family.

"If you want to understand Reformed theology the Puritan Hard Drive is unsurpassed, outside the Bible itself. The First and Second Reformations gave us the most faithful Scriptural teaching and preaching since the time of the Apostles, and there is no other resource, outside Scripture itself, where you can find so much of God's truth as in the Puritan Hard Drive." - Pastor Greg Price (Reformed Presbyterian Author, Theologian, etc.)

  

Assurance and Perseverance: Little Faith Goes to Heaven No Less Than Great Faith by Augustus Toplady (Free MP3)

  

"As a self-confessed computer bozo (if not leaning somewhat towards computer-phobic at times) I am delighted to report that the technical, usability, etc., side of the Puritan Hard Drive has presented no challenges to me whatsoever! It is as simple as ABC! On its contents front, it surely is unsurpassed in wholesome doctrine. For example, type the word 'sin' into the search facility (using the master search index - ed.) and you will be hard pressed to read more uplifting articles on the Christian life, since post-Apostolic days. ... nowhere can you find, in one concentrated place, the overflowing unction of the Holy Spirit in the rivers and tributaries that comprise the Puritan Hard Drive's simple yet expansive creation. Well done SWRB!" - Terence Ellard (Christian Evangelist, England)

Perseverance of Saints (Historical Theology Vol. 2, #23) by William Cunningham (Free MP3)

  

Greetings in our HOLY ONE, Christ Jesus! The truth is the Puritan Hard Drive is not just 25 years of tedious work and the answer to many prayers, but it is a MIRACLE from our HOLY SOVEREIGN MAJESTIC GOD! Try to Scripturally imagine how much Satan hates this type God-honoring and God-glorifying project, and how many times he tried to stop it. Try to imagine the discipline, heartache, persistence, technology and finances it took to see it through to completion -- it is mind-boggling. Common sense tells any thinking Christian that this is an extraordinary and galactic accomplishment! Do yourself a spiritual favor and hold a garage sale and sell all the stuff in your household that you will never use -- SACRIFICE if need be -- and BUY this GIFT OF GOD TO CHRISTIANITY -- The PURITAN HARD DRIVE. This thing is so phenomenal, it is out-of-this-world. The Puritan Hard Drive is absolutely extraordinary! - Jack Windisch, Missionary to Panama (Prov. 10:9)
