Eric Redmond recently preached a sermon from 2 Chronicles 34 on “assumed righteousness” at Hillcrest. Every seminarian, layperson and Baptist should listen to this. Since I am currently all three, I found it very convicting. God brought a lot of things to my attention for which I repent. I thank God for his hard words, and for the shepherds who love the flock too much to keep those hard words silent.
