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

The Great Error in Gary DeMar’s Great Commission

Written by

I must confess that Gary DeMar is right, and I was wrong. I omitted a link in my article to his article over at American Vision, and I was guilty of committing the egregious lazy “m” error in my spelling of DeMar in several places. Maybe I was tired, but that is no excuse. For the...

The Folly of Repenting of Whiteness

Written by

In this episode I rant about the silly notion that something like “Whiteness” is a thing that merits repentance. What black protestants are doing is relabeling sin as “whiteness” and calling it wicked as if the African heart is somehow not quite as black as the...

What Do We Do with Sam Allberry?

Written by

Before I jump into the answer to this question, I want to go on record and agree with Tom Buck and James White that we should not condemn Sam Allberry to eternal condemnation. I cannot do that because I have no idea who Sam is as a person. All I know about Sam is what he teaches and writes in...
