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

    We are living in an age of idolatry and very few people profess Christ. Of those that do, very few seem to understand let alone believe the Gospel.  For example, 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.  But the Scriptures declare that salvation is by grace and mercy and not of him that runs or wills it (Rom 9:16).

Subscribe to our Newsletter  And then there are others who still believe in things like the "free or well-meant offer" of the Gospel as if it is something to be bandied about to be "accepted" or "rejected".  We believe this is a distortion of the Gospel and God's precious love for His elect.  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 He is absolutely Sovereign! We believe He has redeemed 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.

    It is our prayer that this website would be used of God to humble the hearts of those who hear the truth, that God's grace in Christ crucified would be exalted and glorified in thought and deed.  To Him be the glory forever and ever!

Tolerant Calvinists - Published on May 24, 2022
...Note: It's been brought to my attention by some of my fiercest critics (Scott Price and John Pedersen) have written about me, stating that they think  I'm a compromising tolerant calvinist (and therefore in their estimation,  an unbeliever, and an arch-heretic of the first order!).   I normally don't take the time to respond to critics like this, but I thought I'd break down logically the problem with calling "tolerant calvinists" unre...

False Shepherds of Subtle Deception - Published on May 23, 2022
...    But there is another class of false shepherds of a totally different stamp, who are great zealots for the precepts of God's Word, and the ordinances of His house, but whose object is secretly to infuse a spirit of self-righteousness, to lead the people up to what they call holiness, as though holiness were something to be attained by diligent cultivation; and thus they draw them aside from lying as poor miserable sinners at the foot of the cross and bring them to lean upon some...

You Have No Ground for Boasting - Published on April 7, 2022
...For who regards you as superior? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it? - 1 Cor 4:7     He not only chose you before you chose Him (John 15:16), and loved you before you had any love for Him (1 John 4:19), but acted upon you before you acted toward Him.     He had to speak the quickening word before you could come forth from your spiritual grave (John 11:43),   open your blind ey...

Self Elevated Little Popes - Published on March 27, 2022
..."Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father — He who is in Heaven." - Matthew 23:9      In every generation there are those of an officious spirit who aspire to leadership, demanding deference from their fellows. Such men insist upon unqualified subjection from their followers. Their interpretation of the Scriptures must not be challenged, their dictates are final. Everyone must believe precisely wha...

The Most Ridiculous Pride of All - Published on March 26, 2022
...Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. - 1 Timothy 1:13     Years ago, my pastor often spoke this thought, “I can understand why people have pride of face and pride of place; and I have seen many examples of people with pride of race.  What I cannot understand at all is pride of grace.”  In truth, there is no good reason for pride in any man.  But pride of ...

All Things are Ordained of God - Published on March 23, 2022

I Am a Riddle to Myself - Published on March 14, 2022
...    Dear friend,     Wickedness prevails and increases in our city to a dreadful degree! Our streets are filled with the sons of Belial, who neither fear God, nor regard man. I wish my heart was more affected with what my eyes see and my ears hear every day!  I am often ready to fear lest the Lord should show His displeasure in some dreadful way!     And surely, if He were strict to mark all that is amiss, I myself would tremble!  Oh, were He to plea...

Love Thy Neighbor - Published on March 12, 2022
..."Thou shalt love thy neighbour." - Matthew 5:43     “Love thy neighbour.”  Perhaps he rolls in riches, and thou art poor, and living in thy little cot side-by-side with his lordly mansion; thou seest every day his estates, his fine linen, and his sumptuous banquets; God has given him these gifts, covet not his wealth, and think no hard thoughts concerning him.  Be content with thine own lot, if thou canst not better it, but do not look upon thy neighb...

Our Highest Wishes Shall be Crowned and Exceeded! - Published on March 11, 2022
...    Our most enlarged ideas of our future glory are faint and imperfect.  Who can describe or conceive the happiness of Heaven?  It will be as unlike as possible, to this wilderness of sin and sorrow where we are now confined.  Here on earth we are in a warfare, but then we shall enter into perfect rest. We now cry out, "O that I had wings like a dove! For then would I flee away and be at REST!" (Psalm 55:6)     Heaven will be a rest from all SIN. ...

Do Not Be Surprised - Published on March 10, 2022
..."Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you." - John 14:17     The world — that is, the world dead in sin, and the world dead in profession, men destitute of the life and power of God--must have something that it can see. And, as heavenly things can only be seen by heavenly eyes, they cannot receive the things which are invisible.   &n...

Repentance - Published on March 6, 2022

The Great Apostasy - Published on February 7, 2022
...    Paul revealed in his own lifetime that the apocalyptic 'mystery of iniquity' was already at work.  In his farewell address to the Ephesian elders (Acts 20), he prophesied that false teachers and heresy in Christian congregations would greatly multiply after his death.  The mystery of iniquity is more than original sin.  It is the strange and unique sin of irreversible apostasy from God and Christ.  In 1 and 2 Timothy, Paul has a definite change of tone f...

Am I a Means Man or an Anti-Means Man? - Published on January 23, 2022
...    Primitive Baptists have historically maintained that men are regenerated without the use of "means" in stark contrast to most sovereign grace believers who believe that the preaching of the Gospel is the "means" that God uses to regenerate His elect.  This debate has raged on for centuries now, and many congregations have even split over the disagreement.   Some in the conditional time salvation primitive baptist camp have even stated that men may be r...

Preserved in Christ - Published on January 19, 2022
...To them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ - Jude 1:1     How wonderful it is to know that God's elect and chosen people are preserved in Christ.  Not just after they come to believe the truth by the Holy Spirit as it is presented in the Gospel, but even before they come to believe.  They have been joined together with Christ from eternity as they were given to Him in eternity.  Before they were born, or ever lived a life o...

Our Greatest Hindrance - Published on January 18, 2022
...    Our greatest hindrance in ministry, whether it be our preaching from the pulpit, or just telling others of what Christ has done for us is our sinful behavior.  Specifically, it is our religious behavior, which is in my opinion the most sinful behavior.     Those of us who rest in the finished work of Christ and are aware of God's sovereign grace in the work of salvation have absolutely no reason to come to others including non-believers, and bang them ove...

The Importance of Properly Limiting the Atonement - Published on January 16, 2022
...    When it comes to Christ and the doctine of salvation of men across the entire spectrum of Christianity, whether it be Roman Catholicism, Eastern Orthodox, Lutheranism, the many varieties of Calvinistic and Arminian sects, this salvation is limited in some sense by the various doctrines that are maintained.  This is a surprising proposition that many have not yet come to grips with, but it's entirely true.  Everyone almost always limits the atonement in some way.  ...

Humility - Published on January 14, 2022
..."I served the Lord with great humility and with tears" - Acts 20:19     Without humility there is no salvation (Psalm 34:18; 51:17; Isaiah 66:2; Matthew 5:3-5; 18:34; Philippians 3:3).     No man can serve or glorify God in this world without this God-given "humbleness of mind" (Colossians 3:12). Anything done for Christ must be done with humility (Matthew 6:3, 5, 16, 33).     Humility is not an act, but an attitude of the heart. ...

Bees and Wasps - Published on January 13, 2022

We are not saved by working, but by grace, but because we are saved, we desire to be the instruments of bringing others to Jesus....
