Month: December 2022

  • The Baptism Debate

    Catholics, Orthodox, Lutherans, Episcopalians, Methodists, Presbyterians, other Reformed, and some Anglican all believe in either infant baptism or both infant baptism and baptismal regeneration. I submit, respectfully, that these believers are all wrong in their understanding of baptism. In this post, I will discuss the fundamental differences between the credobaptist and paedobaptism positions, and I’ll […]

  • Sheer Folly: America’s Ukraine/Russia Policy

    It’s madness and utter idiocy for America to goad and antagonize Russia thus provoking a potential nuclear war. The stakes are too high and the risks are not mitigated sufficiently to behave so brazen and foolish. Yet that is precisely the policy the Biden Administration and Congress (including many Republicans) are taking. The $1.7 trillion […]

  • The Christian fish symbol

    The fish was used in the Early Church to identify oneself as a Christian. Until the late 4th century Christianity was illegal in the Roman Empire and punishable by death. So Christians had to be cautious and take protective measures to avoid detection by the authorities. The acrostic ICHTHUS (ΙΧΘϒΣ) identifies Jesus Christ as God’s […]

  • January 6th, 2021: Insurrection or Idiocy?

    On January 6th, 2021, as Congress was certifying Joe Biden as the newly elected President as a result of his winning the 2020 presidential election, a group of angry supporters of President Trump stormed the Capitol Building where the members of Congress were, including Vice President Mike Pence. They wanted to stop Congress from certifying […]

  • Christmas Under Attack!

    It’s Christmas Eve night, a holy night as we sit under eager expectation to celebrate our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ’s birth. You’d think this special time of the year is for joyous celebration and quality time spent with friends and family observing holiday traditions, going to church, eating a delicious fine meal, and exchanging […]

  • Transgender insanity

    It is a simple biological fact that you cannot change your sex. Gender = biological sex. There are only 2 sexes, male and female, and thus only 2 genders. This has been the accepted wisdom until the past 20-25 years. Slowly, but surely, as the LGBT movement has grown and become powerful and widely accepted […]

  • Two Songs by Elvis about Love

    Here are two songs performed by Elvis that describe diametrically opposed ways of experiencing love. One is about losing love, and the other is about falling in love. What Now My Love Elvis conveys deep anguish and heartache. The emotional turmoil is palpable. The man loses everything and he loses the will to live. When […]

  • Some Reformed utter “Bah Humbug!” and seek to cancel Christmas!

    Dear fellow Reformed: Stop saying it’s a sin to celebrate Christmas, or that such a celebration is unbiblical. You do things every single day not explicitly commanded in Scripture. It is a gross misapplication of the regulative principle which itself is problematic. I favor the normative principle. Unless something is SINFUL OR EXPRESSLY FORBIDDEN by […]

  • What Does It Mean to Be Reformed?

    In my years of being involved in Christian discussion and debate online (nearly 30 years), I’ve noticed that many Reformed Presbyterians seem to look down on us Reformed Baptists (aka Particular Baptists) and say we aren’t “Really Reformed” or we’re not “Truly Reformed”. I maintain that infant baptism is not the sine qua non of […]

  • Charles Finney: Agent of Satan

    Charles Finney popularized the altar call and decisional salvation (decision theology), which is making a decision for Christ by praying and asking Jesus into your heart. It’s synergistic Arminian soteriology. He also advocated for revivals. The true Gospel is one in which God regenerates a believer, through effectual calling, grants them repentance and faith in […]
