Pristine Grace

  Welcome to the Pristine Grace Website!  We hope you enjoy the discussion forum, articles, sermonsbooks, and scripture software that has been provided here.  This website has been created to proclaim the truth to God's people.

  We are living in an age of self-idolatry and very few people who profess Christ truly understand the Gospel.  Many believe that Jesus died for all men universally and that the difference between those who are saved and not saved is the individual's "free will" decision.   

  There are others who are more enlightened but yet still believe in things like the doctrine of "common grace", the doctrine of "duty-faith" or the "free offer" of the Gospel.  We believe these doctrines are erroneous and profane God's precious love for His elect.  We prefer the word "free" or "pristine" instead of the word "common" to describe grace as the Scriptures declare God's love to be found only in God's Son, and that all of Grace is of the will of God and not corrupted or stained by the will of man, hence the adjective "pristine".

  Some would also cast aspersions on us because we believe in the absolute predestination of all things - that is there isn't a single event that occurs that God did not predestinate.  We believe that the term hyper-calvinism is a pejorative used to discredit our writings. Nevertheless, we believe He is absolutely Sovereign! We believe He has saved His people from their sins (Mat 1:21) and that all of His sheep will be given the gift of faith in the Gospel of Christ at His appointed time.

If Any Man Be in Christ, He is a New Creature - Published on December 4, 2019
...If I covered my transgressions as Adam, by hiding mine iniquity in my bosom: - Job 31:33 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. - 1 Corinthians 15:22     If a man is covered (paid in full on the cross of Calvary) by the works and merits of Christ alone, salvation by the imputed righteousness of Christ alone, then he is made alive (a new creature IN Christ), and if a man is trusting in his own works and merits then he “shalt surely die&r...

Regarding Those Who Erect Barriers to Fellowship - Published on December 4, 2019
...    The Hebrews and the Galatians were believers stumbling at the gospel. Any other reading of those texts is simply reading what you want into the text to make your false points.      All believers stumble at the gospel. All sin is at it root unbelief and all unbelief at its root is gospel unbelief.      And brothers, be sure of this you will never convince some brothers that you are believers.      They have set up a self-righteou...

Sinning Less than Before - Published on December 3, 2019
...    No one can be saved by "sinning less than before", i.e. by committing less obvious sins.  But our flesh is still putting on this show, we are still trying hard to deceive ourselves and others.     Our human measurements of holiness, such as "doing relatively better" {than other people} fall short of God's perfect righteousness, they cannot meet the requirements of God's law. The Thrice Holy God will not accept a "relative progress&...

If I Don’t Fit, So Be It - Published on December 2, 2019
...    My friends, my goal is not to make God look bad or even good, he is who he is. My goal is to worship and preach him as he has revealed himself, even if that means I have to put down my presuppositions, feelings, philosophy, and favorite writers and preachers. Even if it brings division and goes against popular consensus. My goal is not to please men or be popular, but as God gives grace and light, faithfully preach the word of God and to worship him for who he is and not what I mak...

Death in Adam, Life in Christ - Published on November 26, 2019
...    Dear Brother Beebe: - A brother Parker, in Indiana, wrote me some time ago for my views upon the text, “As in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.” I Cor.15:22. I neglected replying with his request until now. I send a discourse delivered upon that subject in the Old School Baptist chapel in Lebanon, Ohio, on the second Sunday in May, 1894, which you may publish if you think proper.     My mind seems to rest upon this portion of the insp...

Able to Stand, But Liable to Fall? - Published on November 26, 2019
...    The Proposition that Adam was able to stand but liable to fall, came first to my ears from Methodists and New School Baptists. The expression sounded puerile and illogical to me then, and sounds so yet. To me the phrase is meaningless; but grant it a meaning, and it arrays itself against the whole tenor of Bible Truth, and all facts of human experience, as exemplified in the universal history of the human race.  Such sayings and phrases as this became current through lack of t...

A Brief Exegesis of Romans 5:12-21 - Published on November 24, 2019
...A Brief Exegesis of Romans 5:12-21 (ESV) NOTE: The position outlined here is one I have embraced, defended, and written about for many years. I am presenting it again as the old issue has come back again with the same challenges as before. Terms: The translation and meaning of ‘All’ in the New Testament writings, when referring to a certain mass of human beings, is generally agreed by those of a sovereign grace perspective to have both a ‘universal’ a...

What God Taught Moses is True for All of God's Children - Published on November 20, 2019
...The eternal God IS THY REFUGE, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and He shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them. - Deu 33:27     After decades of stressing myself to the point of almost a brain aneurysm about political and geo-political matters, culminating in the highest stress in 2012, the Lord graciously taught me a lesson. By His grace, He directed me to the book of Daniel, changing my mind completely in all these matters. Here is the...

The Death of Adam : Clay Village, Ky., 1880. - Published on November 18, 2019
...“Will Elder J.F. Johnson of Ky., give his views on 1 Cor 15:22? Did Adam die a spiritual death or not? If he did not, how are we spiritually dead? The question has been asked us, and we are bothered over it. By answering this you will confer a favor on the least of the little ones, if one at all. - G.W. Russell.     BRETHREN BEEBE: - The above is a request from brother Russell, of Missouri. We do not suppose that the death here spoken of is a spiritual death, nor do ...

Works Evidence But Cannot Validate - Published on November 17, 2019
...     Works, evidence faith but cannot validate it. Show me a religious work that the carnal man cannot mimic, at least for awhile! At the end of the day when we have done all that is our duty, all we can say is that we are unprofitable servants. Are our works important? Absolutely! We were foreordained unto good works before the foundation of the world. But the child of Grace should never look to these works as an assurance of their salvation. Faith is the substance of things HOPE...

The Hum of a Ceiling Fan - Published on November 15, 2019
...    When the environment is loud, busy, and rapidly engaged in many directions it is easy to miss details and be overwhelmed. When all that noise ends suddenly it’s like a dreamy peacefulness, like when a room full of kids go outside and you can hear the hum of a ceiling fan.       The same thing is true when we spend so much time reading and hearing theological and “religious” fodder. It’s impossible to focus on the truth. When we flush the no...

Stir One Another - Published on November 14, 2019

When some forsake assembly, they are not receiving the blessings of others and the body isn’t receiving Gods purpose for them.  Many times we pray for what God has already provided but is rarely with us.  Stir one another beloved. Stir, stir, stir... that means don’t let each other sit idle....

The Best Thing in the World - Published on November 12, 2019
...     Want to know what the best thing in the world is? The assurance that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit because His perfect sacrifice was accepted and well pleasing in the eyes of the Father. That Christ lived a perfect life of obedience to the Father bringing to Him nothing but absolute Glory and Satisfaction in everything He did. And that, because of His obedience to the Father, Jesus Christ, at the dying on the Cross by the imputation of ...

Worship in Spirit and in Truth - Published on November 6, 2019

John 4 21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. 24 God is s...

What Did Christ our Surety Accomplish? - Published on October 31, 2019

In that day, he will appear without sin. Also those that are in Him will also appear without sin. His Father ...

There is Only One Purpose of God’s Gathering - Published on October 27, 2019
...    Usurping Christ in the assembly is a major crime against the glory and majesty of God. It defames God's grace, ridicules the cross, blasphemes the Spirit, refuses Omnipotence, promotes sensuality, praises humanity, encourages creativity, spits at the blood of Christ, provokes judgement, settles the secular, invites the reprobate, starves the sheep, mocks the love of God, and tramples the Son of God underfoot.      There is only ONE GOSPEL. And there is only ON...
