Welcome to Common Grace: Deliberations

This is a website, originally set up in February 2016, as a means to promote the Scriptural truth of sovereign particular grace, and also as a tool to aid research and extensive study of the theory of “common grace” and also what’s known as the “well-meant gospel offer” (also known as “the free offer of the gospel”).

We have a Facebook Page, which we use to post all notifications of new articles and stuff we upload here (so please “like” it if you’re interested in following our activity).

We also have a Facebook Discussion Group, which you are very welcome to join.

 “The glory of God is seen in His almighty, saving grace in Jesus Christ, His purposeful providence involving both the elect and reprobate, and His beautiful simplicity in all His attributes.

Notices of upcoming public lectures and speeches and conferences in the UK and Ireland:


Next Lecture Topic: “The Development of God's Covenant”
Speaker:  Rev. Martyn McGeown, pastor of Limerick Reformed Fellowship
Date: Thursday, 24th May, 2018 
Time: 7:15 PM
Location: Margam Community Centre, Bertha Road, Margam, Port Talbot, SA13 2AP.

In our last speech, we identified God's covenant as a relationship of intimate fellowship that God establishes and maintains with His people in Jesus Christ. Like many doctrines, the covenant is revealed progressively through Scripture. How did God reveal His covenant to Adam, to the men before the Flood, to Noah, to Abraham, to Moses and the people of Israel, and to David? How is there development between these different administrations of the covenant, how does God reveal Christ, and how does this fit with the unity of the covenant? We invite you to hear the answers to these questions from the Bible.

Date: Saturday, 19th May, 2018 
Time: 7:30 PM

Everyone in Ireland seems to have an opinion on abortion—legal experts, medical experts, politicians and political parties, and men and women with personal stories all make their voices heard. In this timely lecture, we ask the vital question, “What does God in His Word have to say on this subject of abortion? What does the Creator and Judge of all men have to say?”  We invite you to hear from God’s Word on this important subject.

The lecture will also be broadcast live on http://mixlr.com/limerickreformed/
