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

Perilous Times

Written by
“Perilous times” have indeed entered the religious and secular arena of our day. Biblical discernment has been all but abandoned in the church. Hatred among those who are normally civil now seems unrestrained. Political viciousness across party lines is unprecedented. Pro-abortion...

A Good Book Wants to Leave my Library

Written by
Here is an excellent book I purchased 9 years ago. It does have a whole lot of highlighting, if that bothers you. It is a paperback of 160 pages.
There are some obsolete things rendered that way to new laws (e.g.the legalization of same-sex “marriage”), but overall the book is a...

A Report on Early Christians

Written by
They dwell in their own countries simply as sojourners…. They are in the flesh, but they do not live after the flesh. They pass their days on earth, but they are citizens of heaven. They obey the prescribed laws, and at the same time, they surpass the las by their lives. Hey love all men but...

Does God Create People to Send to Hell?

The title question has been addressed by Calvinists ad nauseam but never really satisfactorily.  They always claim that such a question impeaches God’s name, dishonors him, etc, but such assertions really ignore the teachings of Calvinism.  I know Calvinists who read my blog will...

The Church’s One Foundation

Written by
(My bold, italics) 
The church's one Foundation
is Jesus Christ her Lord;
she is His new creation,
by water and the Word;
from heav'n He came and sought her
to be His holy bride;
with His own blood He bought her,
and for her life He died.
Elect from ev'ry nation,

Exposing Error

Written by
Exposing error is most unpopular work. But from every true standpoint it is worthwhile work. To our Savior, it means that He receives from us, His blood-bought ones, the loyalty that is His due. To ourselves, if we consider "the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt," it...

Error of Calvinism?

Written by
Galatians 3:2,3 substantiate the fact that no person is regenerated or indwelt by the Spirit of God without having believed; that is, faith in the message of Christ is accompanied by the initial entrance of the Holy Spirit into that person’s life. Without faith, there is no Spirit of God. Vers...

“The Message” is a Mess

To purposely ignore the proper translation of a passage and insert one that has no basis in the original languages in order to undergird a particular point of view is about the most dangerous thing that I can imagine. The only thing more concerning would be to discover large segments of  the...

For two decades[as of 2006]the church-growth experts have told us that if we are to attract the unchurched, we must change the way we “do church.” We must offer them new “settings and experiences.” We must meet their perceived felt-needs. We must do away with biblical...
