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.

Righteousness That Has No Equal - Published on February 27, 2020
...    Sinners find neither strength, merit, nor cause within themselves for God to look upon them savingly. It is a stark reality, that that which is flesh, is flesh and shall always be so. It is but delusion to believe that this flesh is improving day by day and thereby becoming more acceptable to God. This is Satan's lie; "ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil."     Yet those to whom God has given open eyes, ears and a heart to believe his glorious gospe...

All of Grace - Published on February 24, 2020
...    I am not one of God's elect because of something good God saw in me.  There never was, is not now, and never will be any good in our flesh.  "For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing.”  Paul said he knew it.  The problem with most religious folks is they don't know it, and until they do, they will continue to brag and boast of what they have done for God.     I am not one of God's elect because of s...

Believers Should Meet Regularly - Published on February 24, 2020
...    Believers need to be under a regular ministry of the Word and in fellowship with other believers. Not to be so is asking for trouble. Sometimes for some few it is impossible to be where sound preaching and true worship is available. But, in most cases, it is only impossible because of a man 's unwillingness to: 1. Sacrifice material gain and comforts 2. Move from home, friends, and earthly ties 3. Re-examine some traditions and customs 4. Seek and serve the glory of ...

Liberty - Published on February 24, 2020
...    The average church has brainwashed its members — Woe unto that person today in any church who opposes the official line and dares to be what God has made him, an individual. Individual liberty and religious freedom is nowhere more lost than in the modern church where today it is almost unknown....

Advice to Preachers - Published on February 24, 2020
...Don't betray a confidence. Don't fail to show appreciation. Don't live beyond your income. Don't be a stingy person. Don't fail to keep your appointments. Don't allow anyone to dictate your message. Don't be lazy. Don't be professional, artificial, or sensational. Don't overlook the Bible when looking for texts. Don't neglect the sick and sorrowing. And last, but not least: Don't grow old.  "Winter is on my head,...

Do You Desire to Be Saved? - Published on February 24, 2020
...    Do you have a real desire to be saved, or do you merely desire to escape the consequence of your sin? The common desire of all men is to escape Hell, to escape the consequence and punishment of their sin. But this is no desire to be saved. The desire to be saved is not common but uncommon and only the elect of God have it. The desire to be saved is first of all and above all a desire to be saved from the practice of sin, a desire to be holy and a desire to do Go...

Self Promotion - Published on February 24, 2020
...For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. - Psalm 75:6     It is peculiar to mankind (especially religious mankind) to promote themselves. A little notoriety, a little recognition, a little attention, and the flesh is launched like a rocket. They love to see their name displayed with flashing lights and to be identified with those who are highly esteemed. They want all to know of their acceptance and success. They want the world to know ...

Their Work is a Sorry Foundation for the Soul's Peace - Published on February 23, 2020
...“But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.” - 1 Corinthians 1:30     My greatest sin is to sit under the glory of God and remain unmoved—How can we believe that way?     We have heard people speak of sanctification as a progressive work, in virtue of which our old nature is to be made gradually better. And, until this process has reached its climax, that is until fa...

They Could Not Believe - Published on February 21, 2020
..."Therefore they could not believe..." - John 12:39     What a sobering verse of God's word! A verse that speaks not about willingness but ability. These Jewish and Greek people gathered at Jerusalem with the religious leaders was affixed to Jesus has He had just entered the city. Palm branches and shouts of Hosanna were heard around the gate. The eyewitnesses that saw Jesus  raise Lazarus from the grave were were there bearing witness of his miracle. All eyes...

My Righteousness is Christ - Published on February 14, 2020
...    One day as I was passing into the field, this sentence fell upon my soul: ‘Thy righteousness is in heaven.’ And with the eyes of my soul I saw Jesus at the Father’s right hand. ‘There,’ I said, ‘is my righteousness!’ So that wherever I was or whatever I was doing, God could not say to me, ‘Where is your righteousness?’ For it is always right before him.     I saw that it is not my good frame of heart that made my ri...

The Impeccability of Christ - Published on February 13, 2020
...    We are living in a world of sin, and the fearful havoc it has wrought is evident on every side. How refreshing, then, to fix our gaze upon One who is immaculately holy, and who passed through this scene unspoilt by its evil. Such was the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God incarnate. For thirty-three years He was in immediate contact with sin, yet He was never, to the slightest degree, contaminated. He touched the leper, yet was not defiled, even ceremonially. Just as the rays of the...

The Doctrine of Predetermination - Published on February 11, 2020
...    When I consider the absolute independency of God, and the necessary total dependence of all created things on Him, their first Cause, I cannot help standing astonished at the pride of impotent, degenerate man, who is so prone to consider himself as a being possessed of sovereign freedom, and invested with a power of self-salvation, able, he imagines, to counteract the designs even of infinite wisdom and to defeat the agency of Omnipotence itself. "Ye shall be as gods," sa...

Don’t Chew on the Briars - Published on February 8, 2020
...    There is not a preacher – living or dead – with whom you cannot find fault, either in what he says, what he writes, or what he does. Perfection is only found in our Lord. “I find no fault in HIM.” His ambassadors, however, are human and not only subject to mistakes, but prone to error, except they are kept, led, and taught by the Holy Spirit.     Let us be patient with one another, pray for one another, and look for the good and not the bad...

Infralapsarianism : The Man Created for the Woman - Published on February 7, 2020
..."For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man". 1 Cor. 11:8-9     In infralapsarianism, the man (Christ) is created for the woman (church); not woman for the man.     One of the problems with infralapsarianism is that the Man (Christ) is made for the Woman (Church) and not visa versa (as it is in the Bible) and that only in light of the woman's failure to live by her wo...

Antinomianism - Published on February 7, 2020
...    Now don’t we see the same things oftentimes among the very Preachers, Pharisees and Professors? The Gospel converts them not, but angers them, as God said he would deal with the Jews by the Gospel. They know they must be emptied, ashamed, and most of what they have said and written and made a stir about, must go down, one time or another, if the Gospel be true; and this goes against the grain of flesh and blood. And as it was among the Jews, what they had been used to in Reli...

Our Beliefs : Hawaii Island Reformation Fellowship - Published on February 5, 2020
...    Our Hawaii Reformation Fellowship has been entrusted with the delightful duty to proclaim, promote and preserve the truth of God. What is our creed; what, in short, are our beliefs? The Five Solas of the Reformation: Scripture alone. We do not bow to the writings of men to guide us in doctrine and practice. We cannot wholeheartedly support in letter every detail of many old confessions of faith written by well-meaning but sinful men. There are no church denomi...
Without One Plea - Published on February 4, 2020

In Him is No Sin - Published on February 2, 2020
...1 John 3:5     The Lord Jesus Christ was manifested to take away our sins and in Christ there is no sin. Though he was made sin for us, our Lord had no sin of his own. — “Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth.” — “Who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners.” In order for him to be a suitable sacrifice for sin, it was necessary that our Savior be without sin. The sinner’s Substitute must himself be innocent, righte...
