The Great Actor

My Pastor has been gracious enough to lend me this book. I know what you’re thinking, “Yeah right! What good Reformed Pastor is going to lend out a Banner of Truth book, by Iain Murray at that?” Honestly, I don’t know if I would do it. To be even more honest, I’m not even sure he’s going to get it back! But regardless of whose book it is, so far, it is very good.

The Bible is the record of the activity of God. God is the actor. God is the centre. Everything is of God and comes from God, and turns to God. It is God who speaks. It is God who acts. It is God who intervenes. It is God who originates, who plans everything everywhere.

  1. Sounds very interesting,after I read the excerpt this occurred to me…

    It is God who originates, who plans everything everywhere…and man who’s ultimate folly is to attempt to comprehend it.

  2. God tells us there are two categories of knowledge:
    “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.”
    (Deuteronomy 29:29)
    Yea, verily, amen to all of the above comments.
