  • Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God

    Introduction “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” is a sermon written by the American theologian Jonathan Edwards, preached to his own congregation in Northampton, Massachusetts, to profound effect, and again on Wednesday, July 8, 1741, in Enfield, Connecticut. The preaching of this sermon was a great catalyst for the ongoing [First] Great Awakening […]

  • A Primer on Salvation

    Does man have free choice as it pertains to salvation? I believe a careful study of Scripture will reveal that man has the ability to make choices, yet we are not totally free in our moral agency. This is due to the fact that the natural man, before he is saved, is spiritually dead and […]

  • The New Mission Field

    For generations (some 45-50 years): Gen-X, Millennials, and finally Gen-Z, there has been this popular idea among Christian parents that they could use their children to retake pagan society for Christ. So they were in effect active missionaries when they went to government (public) K-12 schools and universities. This idea has had devastating effects. Instead […]

  • Protoevangelium of James

    This work is spurious, it is a total forgery, and was not written by the Apostle James. It dates to at the earliest the mid-2nd century, that is 150 years after the last Apostle John died! It is a pseudepigraphical work that purports to give information on Jesus’ early life and Mary His mother’s life […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Justification: On What Basis?

    Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God. Romans 5:1 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of […]

  • The Sad State of American Evangelicalism

    It may be no surprise to Christians who are well-informed and careful observers of the spiritual landscape of America, but still the results of the surveys of evangelicals referenced in this post are both shocking and depressing. They reveal a fractured evangelical body in America, one that is rife with all manner of heresies and […]
