A Charge to Keep, Part 1
Just as sheep need a shepherd to protect them from the wolves that would decimate the flock, the church needs shepherds—wise men who can discern a true Christian from an imposter and distinguish truth from false doctrine. This week on No Falling Word with Liam Goligher we are continuing our study of chapter 20 of the Book of Acts and see Paul’s on-going concern for the future of the early church.
If Christians confuse what is true of Jesus Christ as a human being with what is true of the Eternally Divine Son, they make very serious errors indeed. The most obvious is to conﬂate the exaltation of the Son of God from all eternity with the welcome given by the Father to the God-Man Christ Jesus, who redeemed God’s elect through a sacrificial death. So, in these great teachings, a course correction is long overdue, lest we run out of fuel over water. We must adore Jesus Christ our Lord, both fully Son of Man and fully Son of God.
