But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Excerpts from Facebook Live 6-9-18

I thought I’d share a bit of last nights online teaching.  First, we talked about Jesus saying, “If you love me, keep my commandments.”  Then, after a bit of editing, we looked at a portion of Ephesians 2 and the fulness grace that is given to undeserving sinners.

Jesus Saves!

Written by

Back in September of 2008, I received the following mp3.  I listened to it.  I liked it.  But, it felt a bit self-serving to share it.  The audio is from the second time I had preached at the Sovereign Grace Bible Conference at Main Street Baptist Church in Lexington, KY., back...

Salvation by Doctrine

I just replied to an email that I think touches on a subject that’s worth sharing.  It reads:

Greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Pastor Jim.

Question: Is it possible for an elect (person) to die not KNOWING doctrines about the Grace of God?

Greetings.
