The real Francis Turretin on: Propitiation and Chastisement

Don Bryant, at From My Heart, Out of My Mind, has a post consisting of a nice quotation from the real Francis Turretin on the complete propitiation that Christ has made as well as the relation of chastisements to the scheme of propitiation (link). This quotation is taken from material found in volume 4 of Turretin's works, rather than from his Institutes.

Well now, that quote will make you murderous, hateful, angry if you have something to prove!

Brother Francis leaves me no room to do anything myself!

"....that henceforth there are no more propitiatory offerings to be made for sin,..."!

So, the question that needs an answer is, what was Paul teaching us in Roman's 12, then?

Rom 12:1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.

The key word there is "mercies", or that that God doesn't do to me that I deserve!

And what do I deserve but both temporal and eternal punishments!

Even my goodness is not good to Him!

Psa 143:1 A Psalm of David. Hear my prayer, O LORD; give ear to my pleas for mercy! In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness!
