First Order Discourse

Abraham:  “The best antidote to abusive and self-serving forms of inclusivism is to reinstate the gospel at the core of the church’s life … When it comes to our turn to speak, we can change the subject and return to the first order of discourse of the gospel. We can immerse ourselves in the great themes of the gospel; we can drink afresh from the mercy of God in the cross; we can ensure that the full faith of the church is tended to and taught; we can lift up Christ like the serpent in the wilderness and watch him draw all to himself; we can cry out for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the church; we can do all we can to ensure that the sacraments are duly administered; we can pray without ceasing for the comprehensive renewal of the whole people of God.”
