Here’s a short article I wrote some years ago.
2 Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
Here is a statement that many find difficult if not impossible to believe. God has given us all things that pertain unto life and godliness. ALL THINGS! Nor has He given them to just us, but they have been available to the saints since Peter wrote this. We do not need "the second blessing," "something more," nor a "baptism of the Holy Ghost" other than when we're saved. There are not any great secrets that have been hidden through centuries of church history that have now been revealed through some man (Joseph Smith, Michael Pearl, Peter Ruckman, Jimmy Swaggart, etc.) We lack nothing to live a godly life. It is all available to us. Not one thing is lacking or missing, and it has not been for at least 2000 years. How dare modern teachers rise up in these last days and say that "God is doing a new thing" or that people need psychology to really "understand themselves"! We have all that we need, and always have had it.
