The Impeccable Christ

Front Cover
Sovereign Grace Publishers,, 2003 - Religion - 108 pages
W. E. Best is a Baptist pastor and an excellent teacher of the Bible. The author chose this title (not to sin) to describe the Christ because it expresses the divine truth that Christ could not sin for the reason that as God He was perfectly holy, and as man He was perfectly holy. "Holiness is far more than the absence of sin; it is positive virtue. The Lord Jesus could not sin because the days of His flesh meant only addition of experience, not variation of character. Holy humanity was united to Holy Deity in one indivisible Person, the impeccable Christ." It could not be otherwise, else, the holy Deity would have been defiled by any unholiness in the human flesh. This book slays completely Satan's lie which says that Christ was human, therefore, He "could have sinned, but did not." Yes, He was "tempted (tried) in all respects according to [our] likeness, apart from sin." However, the trial, or test, was to demonstrate His perfect holiness, that regardless of stress or trial, it was impossible for Him to sin. In short but powerful sentences, the author comprehends the mysterious and marvelous Person who is the Christ. He covers such pregnant subjects as The Eternal Son of God; The Son Declares the Father; The Mystery of Godliness; The Incarnation; the Virgin Birth; Christ's Human Nature; Christ's Human Soul; Christ's Human Growth; Christ's Baptism; Christ's Temptation; Christ's Impeccable Life; The God-approved Man; Christ's Prayer Life; The Drawing Power of Christ; Christ's Discriminating Message; Christ's Miracles; Christ's Death; Christ's Headship; and, Christ's Kingship.

Page 15 - But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost ; in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Page 13 - Who is a liar, but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
Page 7 - My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee, so that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding ; if thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures ; then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.
