James Candlish: The Biblical Doctrine of Sin

I have created a PBB resource of James Candlish’s book entitled, The Biblical Doctrine of Sin. You can download it by clicking the attachment link below.

James Candlish is not to be confused with Robert Candlish. James Candlish taught at the Free Church College in Glasgow. The book was published in 1893. I created this PBB because it appeared on the reading list for my Doctrine of Man course at Westminster Seminary back in the mid 1980s.


A Simple Prayer in Spiritual Warfare

Scriptural basis

Colossians 1:12 – God the Father qualified you to share in the light
Colossians 1:13 – God rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and put us into the kingdom of his son. That means that we are not under the enemies power at all! But he likes to try and scare us still.
Colossians 1:22 God has made you holy, blameless and beyond accusation.
Colossians 2:10 God made you COMPLETE in Jesus, and Jesus is the authority over absolutely every thing, including the spirits.


Sleepless in Haiti

Well here I am, I’ve been teaching for the last few days. I’m at least maintaining my pace to some degree – though there’s lots to do yet, and to be honest it’s still pretty early in the course.
One of my challenges here is sleeping. I’m a country boy. I live out in the country. I sleep with my windows shut most of the time, and even when they are open I seldom hear more than the odd dog barking once or twice (well until my new neighbors moved in a few houses over).
