  • Being Reformed: Confessions and Identity

    I am sick and tired of people coming onto my Facebook timeline and berating, denigrating, and condescending to me because I am a Reformed Baptist who is dispensational in my eschatology. I follow the 1689 LBCF (London Baptist Confession of Faith), yet I disagree with its amillennial eschatology (End Times). I adhere to over 90% […]

  • Saul’s Conversion

    Can God use the persecution of Christians for the good of bringing nonbelievers to Christ?  Christians would know the right answer is yes, yet many would not be persecuted if they don’t have to be.  In this classic booklet, famous preacher and Reformed English evangelist George Whitefield (he was the most famous preacher of his […]

  • Woke and Theologically Broke

    Sadly, in recent years, there has been an explosion in wokeness; which is defined by Critical Race Theory (CRT), social justice, intersectionality, progressive Christianity, etc. Wokeness is Marxist, explicitly racist (they teach hatred for white people, and those white people should be penalized in various ways for their whiteness), and Satanic – as it pits […]

  • Federal Vision theology is heterodox

    Referencing this article: https://www.desiringgod.org/interviews/will-we-be-finally-saved-by-faith-alone Piper seems to say that our justification (grounding) is delayed until we die and face a final judgment; whereby we are judged by our faithfulness (good works). He doesn’t use the exact same terminology that many FV (Federal Vision) adherents use, yet he seems to be articulating the same concepts. I […]

  • Satan’s Stratagems

    Satan has been relegated, in our modern Western society, to an impersonal and nebulous force. One who is not a severe threat. The forces of darkness are fundamental. As Scripture says there are powers and principalities of evil in the spiritual world. Demons are one manifestation of these dark powers. Yet, most in the West […]

  • Catholicism: A Sinking Ship

    Catholicism is slowly, but inexorably imploding from the weight of its considerable theological hubris and widespread immorality. Statistics Some shocking data points: There is widespread immorality among Catholic priests. In “Priests: A Calling in Crisis” Father Andrew Greeley (Professor of Social Sciences, University of Chicago) says over 50% of priests are in heterosexual or homosexual […]

  • The unbeliever in Islam: Paradigm and Primer

    In Islam, according to the Qur’an and the most respected Hadith, the unbeliever (kafir) is treated totally different than Muslims. Through the strict enforcement of sharia (Islamic law) the non-Muslim living in Muslim-majority societies is relegated to the status of dhimmitude, which makes them second or even third class citizens. They are required to pay […]

    This poem is about putting on the full armor of God, as delineated in Ephesians 6:10-18. Tis the Devil I fight todayI will battle him without delay Not by my own mightBy God’s power that serpent will seek flight I can do nothing by my powerBut all can be done as Christ’s soldier Don the […]
