  • French Protestants Massacred by Papists

    On August 24th, in 1572, about 70,000 Huguenots (French Protestants) were butchered in the streets of Paris, and other French cities. The elderly, women, and even children were not spared Rome’s Satanic blood lust!!! Roughly 20 years before, John Calvin wrote to the prisoners held captive in Lyon: “Remember to lift up your eyes to […]

  • 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 One True Church

    I often hear Catholics and Orthodox say they are the oldest churches and can trace through apostolic succession their churches back to 33 AD. I posit that what is most important is having the correct doctrine. Men are fallible and can make mistakes. Once a church is institutionalized correcting those mistakes becomes very difficult, if […]

  • The 5 Solas of the Reformation

    The glorious Protestant Reformation was built on 5 foundational principles. These are collectively known as The 5 Solas. Below is each of the terms in Latin with an English translation, followed by a brief description. Sola Scriptura (“Scripture alone”). This means that the Bible alone is the ultimate authority. Although it can be beneficial to […]

  • America: Designed to Fail?

    I’ve come to realize that most modern appliances and electronics are actually designed with the intent that they will fail within a certain calculated time span. Anywhere from 3-7 years for fridges and 10-14 at the maximum. This failure is implicit in the design specifications, materials used, manufacturing processes, and is well known to those […]

  • Reformed Theology: An Introduction

    Here is a set of 12 videos, by Dr. R.C. Sproul, teaching the basics of Reformed Theology. I highly recommend this video series! Dr. Sproul was a gifted communicator, and conveyor of Reformed theology. Also, if you’re looking for a book, I highly recommend this one, which has the same name as the video series. […]

  • A Reformed conversation on nouthetic and biblical counseling

    I just had a very fruitful exchange with a dear brother, Philip, who is Reformed like me, and who suffers from serious mental illness like me, on the topic of my recent blog post on Jay Adam’s nouthetic counseling. If you’d like to read the blog post to see what precisely he responded to you […]

  • Nouthetic Counseling: A Critical Evaluation

    So I made the mistake of asking my Facebook friends what nouthetic counseling (Greek: noutheteo, to admonish) is yesterday. I received a flood of responses. However, most of the responses were very much pro- nouthetic counseling. And they spoke glowingly about self-styled BIBLICAL COUNSELOR Jay Adams. In this post I will give a critical (yet […]

  • Mental Illness: A Blessing in Disguise?

    I know that most readers may be taken aback by the title of this post. Some will be confused as to how mental illness could be a blessing. Can something which disturbs your life on a fundamental level, which causes so much pain, heartache, grief and even despair, be on any level good? I say […]

  • Christianity in America: The Decline of the Protestant Faith

    In 1950 the Christian majority in America was over 90%, today. Today it is down to just 65%! In a 2020 survey by the Pew Research Center, 65% of adults in the United States identified themselves as Christians. They were 75% in 2015 70.6% in 2014, 78% in 2012, 81.6% in 2001, and 85% in […]
