  • Godly Government

    I posit that pluralistic democracies (or even a constitutional republic like America) are fraught with systemic problems which lead to degeneracy. As we’ve seen in America, the tyranny of the minority is able to impose on the majority through the law, entertainment, and education. This can be clearly observed with respect to LGBT. Also, democracy […]

  • Teaching Authority

    We do not have an infallible authority for science or mathematics, yet we are able to discover truth through our God-given faculties! It is a very false Catholic assertion that we cannot know any Biblical truth without an “infallible Magisterium” (a teaching authority). See Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) 2035. They just choose to […]

  • Jewish Objections

    Here is a wonderful set of apologetics books I came across. “Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus” by Dr. Michael L. Brown. Dr. Brown is a Jew and grew up in the Jewish religion. He became a Messianic Charismatic Christian in his 20s, and since then he has devoted his life to Christian apologetics. Dr. Brown […]

  • Sanctification Considered

    Sanctification is the spiritual process of us sinners becoming holy by the work of God as we are in union with Christ. When we are first regenerated and born again (second birth) we receive justification and initial definite sanctification. But as we live our Christian lives, we engage in progressive sanctification whereby we are made […]

  • Orthodoxy and Religious Freedom

    Russia adopted anti-missionary anti-proselytizing laws in 2016 at the federal level. Similar laws already existed in various Russian states. On July 6th, 2016, President Vladimir Putin signed amendments to the Religion Law imposing harsh restrictions on the sharing of beliefs, including on where and by whom they may be shared. The amendments ban broadly defined […]

  • America – the new Rome

    It pains me greatly to see how far America has strayed from biblical morality. The popular culture is no longer Christian. One has to only tune in to the TV talk shows to see how they mock and ridicule and attack Christian faith at every turn. The seeds of this Antichrist culture were in the […]

  • Sanctification

    Denying the desiresOf the flesh each day Resisting temptationsWhen they come our way Doing the difficult thingWhen you feel weak Pushing through doubt and fearWhen the road ahead looks bleak Your darkest impulsesYou must allay Soon your thinking has changedIn a profound way No longer a prisonerTo the chains of sin Your soul has changedBy […]

  • Total Depravity

    TOTAL DEPRAVITY == UTTER DEPRAVITY Original sin means that people by nature are hostile to God, utterly unable to obey God out of their old corrupted heart, and therefore they are unable to do anything that truly acknowledges God’s truth (Rom. 8:7-8). All of Adam’s offspring are born naturally depraved and with a bent toward […]

  • God’s Wrath

    “It is sad to find so many professing Christians who appear to regard the wrath of God as something for which they need to make an apology, or at least they wish there were no such thing. While some would not go so far as to openly admit that they consider it a blemish on […]

  • Reformed without Covenant Theology

    I’m Reformed, but I’m also dispensational in my eschatology. After intense and rigorous study, I came to the pretribulational and premillennial position. I believe this is the most faithful to Scripture. I’ve noticed since I’ve been in many Reformed Facebook groups and some internet forums, that many Reformed (Presbyterians mainly) are very vocal about the […]
