The Pelagian Heresy

If anyone says that the grace of God can be conferred as a result of human prayer, but that it is not grace itself which makes us pray to God, he contradicts the prophet Isaiah, or the Apostle who says the same thing, "I have been found by those who did not seek me; I have shown myself to those who did not ask for me" (Rom 10:20, quoting Isa. 65:1). -Canon 3 of the Second Council of Orange, (529 AD)
The Second Council of Orange affirmed the theology of Augustine against the heretical teachings of Pelagius. Learn more about Pelagianism in this newly uploaded audio clip from Lane by the crew at The White Horse Inn.

For those who were involved in creating this website and those who contribute to it I just want to say I am so thankful to God for your commitment to His truth!

Soli DEO gloria!!!

I just started a blog at thomaskarrer.blogspot.com

I live in a fairly secluded town where not a single Biblical church exists within a two hour radius. Pray for us! Pray for me! It's especially refreshing to me to have like-minded brethren I can be united with on the web.

Thank you for the kind words Thomas. I am glad you have found the site edifying and encouraging.

Hang in there with the Church situation, God has a way of making things work out.

Grace and peace to you,
