Two Salvation Plans Contrasted

Two Salvation Plans Contrasted

The Roman Catholic Church's salvation plan is in stark opposition to the Holy Scripture's teachings.

How Should We Think of Suicide?

How Should We Think of Suicide?

The Bible is clear that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone and that if one is truly saved, nothing (not even suicide) can separate them from the love of God in Jesus Christ. Praise God that all our sins, even those committed in death, are covered by the blood of the Lamb of God.

Pop Evangelism’s Misuse of Scripture: Part 6

All mankind – not only Christians – have a personal relationship with God. One group is in a relationship of grace and mercy, while the other group is in a relationship of wrath and judgment.

Israel’s Jubilee Fulfilled in the Philippines!

February 12, 2010

Really? If Moses were alive today, he would have died laughing at the "Intercessors for the Philippines," a group of Filipinos so gullible to the deception of Cindy Jacobs, a well-known false prophet.

Jesus died for and loves even those who are weeping and gnashing their teeth in hell?

Jesus died for and loves even those who are weeping and gnashing their teeth in hell?

So if Christ died for those who are now and will be in hell, what becomes of Christ’s death on the cross for him: Useless! Makes no sense! Infinitely unfair to our Suffering Servant!

God’s Grace for His Own Special Possession

God’s Grace for His Own Special Possession

Paul connects three of his major themes in his epistles: God’s grace in election, redemption and sanctification. We are his own chosen possession, redeemed and cleansed from all our sins and uncleannesses, and as elect and redeemed people, we are to live godly and righteous lives in this present age while waiting for our blessed hope in the age to come.

A Psalm of Lament for Christmas

A Psalm of Lament for Christmas

This is why we celebrate Christmas. This is why we have joy at Christmas. This is why we could say with David, “My heart shall rejoice in your salvation!” This is why the angels in heaven rejoiced at the birth of Christ, because his birth was “good news of great joy that will be for all the people.”

Mangled “Message” of the Beatitudes

July 28, 2009

When the focus of The Beatitudes becomes "you" instead of Christ and his kingdom, it merely becomes a moral lesson no different from all other religions that teach salvation by good works--helping the poor and those who grieve and are oppressed, being humble and honest, and promoting peace among people.

“Does Baptism ‘Save’?” (1 Peter 3:21)

April 18, 2009

"Either the the flood waters/baptism waters are a judgment, i.e. they signal condemnation (for those who are not identified with Christ) or they signal salvation for those who are identified with Christ, who are in the ark." - Dr. R. Scott Clark

Christless Christianity – a Smorgasbord

January 13, 2009

Many people are now "their own theologian-in-residence," and embrace an "unpredictable and contradictory body of beliefs," mixing eclectic and syncretistic Christian and non-Christian views. Feelings and emotions are now king, while preaching and Bible study are disliked, resulting in even more Biblical illiteracy.

What 1 Corinthians 10:2 means

September 5, 2008

Paul, therefore, is saying that as Israel crossed the sea, they were united into Moses, who had authority over them from God and who led them in their escape from Egypt and in the crossing of the sea. Continuing with his commentary on the Exodus narrative, Paul points out that Israel partook of the one spiritual food and drink which God gave them through their "baptism" into Moses.

Bill Hybels and Mother Teresa

August 13, 2008

Bill Hybels' address at the 2008 Leadership Summit was the result of months of studying Mother Teresa. He told 50,000 attendees that no one has affected him more deeply than Mother Teresa. Why do Hybels and other pop evangelical leaders frequently praise their non-Biblical, even non-Christian, heroes?
