Reviews - What do customers think about Law Of Perfect Freedom?

Look To A Holy God  Feb 25, 2008
'It is impossible to know the true God, apart from His self-disclosure.' pg 107

Any manifestation of God's grace, even His law, is a gift (James 1:17).
A decade ago Michael Horton emphatically stated: 'That is why, throughout this book we will make a conscious effort to see these commandments not merely as stones to throw at secular society, but as a witness to our unfaithful record at the end of the 20th century.'

'There is no hesed (covenant loyalty), no love, no acknowledgment of God in the land.' Hosea 4:1

The Bible depicts sin in uncompromising terms. Taking us back to a time now far removed from modernism, God revealed Himself to Moses. The Ten Commandments are not just God's suggestions. How could a holy God come and live amongst sinful men? We fail to appreciate that God's wrath would have been seen far more often if it was not for the successful operation of the sacrifices set forth to deal with Israel's transgressions.

'The religion of Israel, however, was committed to a mediated relationship with God. Individual Jews had a relationship with God only because they were part of a community of faith. This community was represented by mediators: prophets, priests and kings. In the NT, the final prophet, priest and king appears.' pg 79

'There are various theocracies (lit. 'God-reigns') in redemptive history. In Eden, God rules thru one representative, Adam. When He establishes Israel as a nation, God rules both spheres once again thru.. one representative, the king. But apart from these theocracies, God rules thru providence rather than miracle, and the two spheres are separated. Throughout the gospels Jesus announces the dissolution of the Jewish theocracy. The kingdom of God is no longer identified with one single nation. This is the point of the many parables. But when Jesus, the King of kings, arrived, He declared, 'My kingdom is not of this world' (John 18:36). In other words, Christ's kingdom is not like David's. It is, for the time being, a kingdom in spiritual conflict rather than physical conflicts.' pg 160-163

'We cannot be expected to put God at the centre of our existence if He is not at the center of our theological system.' pg 76

'It is easy to use God's Name, instead of fearing it.' pg 100

'Our motivation for excellence - in work, in education, in relationships, in the home - must be the sanctity of God's reputation.' pg 103

God's moral laws are precepts which are 'righteous altogether', set in place for eternity. Horton draws on the social ills of our time, and decries the absolute lack of fear of a God who has so revealed Himself, and excels in bringing the ways of God, His eternal ways, to bear on our carnal minds, in exegetical synopses of the Ten Commandments, whilst cleverly avoiding the trap of legalism. Mercy available today...lest we be found not behaving like Christians at all, and that our conduct is a contradiction to our identity and confession as believers.

Essential for the life of the individual Christian and the church as a whole.
