In the lesson on What It Means to Be a Christian, that I taught on Sunday, I think I misspoke regarding something that just popped in my mind today. I said that in John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress that "Eargate" is the chief entrance to "Mansoul."
Well, this is actually from John Bunyan's The Holy War, not Pilgrim's Progress. So if you go to double check me on that one go to The Holy War.
Anyhow, this is how God works in the general call (as opposed to the effectual call) through the preaching/teaching of His Word. So "Mansoul" is won through God's use of His church (us) in what is called the general call (the preaching/teaching of His Word) through "Eargate." Whew!
Have a great week!
