• The Marian Dogmas Considered

    In this post I will be discussing the 4 Marian dogmas of the Catholic church from a Reformed point of view. Even though these dogmas developed over a long period of time, Rome would have you believe they were held by the faithful always, going all the way back to the early church. Reformers such […]

  • Corporal Punishment: YAY or NAY?

    I strongly believe in corporal punishment when it comes to children. And further, I believe it is absolutely biblical! I have seen the results of people who were raised without corporal punishment, and I contrast that with the people I know who were raised with corporal punishment. The differences are stark! Spare the rod, spoil […]

  • Early Church Fathers and the question of authority

    As I see it, Scripture confers no special status to the so-called Early Church Fathers. As such their theological opinions should be judged against the Scriptures and they should not be given substantial weight when interpreting Scripture. They were closer to the Apostolic age and may well have some insights into certain matters, but their […]

  • Interpreting the Bible

The Scriptures are self-consistent, self-interpreting, and self-authenticating. The Christian church […]

  • Julie Roys admits error in her coverage of John MacArthur

    In a shocking and bizarre turn of events, liberal Christian journalist Julie Roys has recently confessed to speaking in error in her extensive coverage of pastor John MacArthur. Further she says that she regrets her actions. Yet she didn’t come to full repentance which is very sad. Repentance is taking full acceptance of wrongdoing, admitting […]

  • John MacArthur vs Julie Roys

    This latest report is really shocking! I know we all make mistakes, but as a John MacArthur supporter, I really hope he’ll speak up and admit that he didn’t handle this case well. I don’t want Dr. MacArthur to be demonized. I still find him to be an amazing expository preacher and a godly man. […]
