About Jay F Guin

My name is Jay Guin, and I’m a retired elder. I wrote The Holy Spirit and Revolutionary Grace about 18 years ago. I’ve spoken at the Pepperdine, Lipscomb, ACU, Harding, and Tulsa lectureships and at ElderLink. My wife’s name is Denise, and I have four sons, Chris, Jonathan, Tyler, and Philip. I have two grandchildren. And I practice law.

    The world is changing and our worldview ought also to change. Rather than asking, “Are the Baptists or the Catholics right?” millions are asking a question on a completely different plane: “Is Jesus the Lord or should I follow Muhammad?” I’m more concerned to tell Muslims and sinners about Jesus than I am debating matters of precise doctrinal formulations with fellow Christians. I’d rather show a wanderer the gospel of Jesus than “convert” an Episcopalian’s view of scripture to mine.

    If I'm talking to the one who is torn between Jesus and Muhammad, then obviously I want to share on that level. But if I'm talking to someone who was not baptized into Jesus and has not received the Holy Spirit, there is a different message to be shared. Like Priscilla and Aquila, I need to help them understand the gospel more adequately. The former situation doesn't render the latter invalid.

    Thank you Jay. Would you take a look at my blog "AN Uncommon Grace" and tell me your thoughts? I respect you opinon. Perhaps the post "Cash 'Got' Grace" is a good place to start and get an idea of what the site is about. I appreciate your consideration.

    Even one who barely gets the message of the Protestant Reformation would see this so-called reformation here as nothing but "a return to Romanism." How much moreso can a true Christian, a member of Christ's church that sparked the Reformation by coming out of the wilderness prior to Luther's theseis see it for what it is. And yea, even you followers of Lipscomb with all your rank liberalism and digression can also see that this is no reformation at all. This sort of Ethnic 'Christanity', this mentality of "us cuktivated and civilized Christianites against them dirty Turks at all cost to the mangling of the gospel" is nothing more than the lay Catholic religion of the crusades.
