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 elect people in Christ.

    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.

Subscribe to our Newsletter  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 distort 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.

The 400 Year Reign of the Baptist Popes - Published on May 3, 2019
...The Protestant movement arose in the early 16th century as an attempt to overthrow centuries of corruption and false doctrine in the Roman Catholic church. The heart and soul of the Protestant Reformation focused on a revival of Pauline soteriology, in opposition to the Papal doctrine of justification before God achieved by means of inner transformation--communicated in the clergy-administered church sacraments. The leaders of Protestantism have never acknowledged that the entire system of Roman soteriology was invented and expounded by Augustine of Hippo. There is instead an insistence that Augustinian theology is the very basis of the Reformation. Gus is alleged by Reformed teachers to espouse justification exclusively by the free grace of God in the person of Jesus Christ....

This World Exists for One Reason - Published on February 25, 2021
..."The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.  The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight." - Mark 1:1-3     As one year draws to a close, and another follows, one may consider, just what is time? It is merely that which delimits our sojourn in this world before passing into...

Give Heed to Your Thoughts - Published on February 24, 2021
...    The more sincere anyone is, the more he makes conscience of his thoughts, and is more observant of them and troubled about them. “Let the unrighteous man forsake his thoughts” (Isaiah 55:7). When a man’s thoughts trouble him, then he begins to be serious, and to have a conscience indeed. So David “I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love” (Psalm 119:113).     We think thoughts are free, and subject to no tribunal. If there is any error ...

Glorifying the Lord - Published on February 21, 2021
...     Jehovah is glorified actively, when we give to Him the glory that is due to His holy name.  God is said to be glorified when we honor Him in His Word, His attributes, His perfections and in all His dispensations, both in nature, providence and grace.  “Whoso offereth me praise, saith Jehovah, he glorifieth me” (Psalm 50:23).  We may be said to glorify God when we give Him the credit due to God in believing Him, and especially in that record He hath ...

How Excellent O God! - Published on February 11, 2021
...How excellent is thy loving-kindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. - Psalm 36:7     I LOVE TO SEE and bask in the Light of God’s electing love, for Christ is God’s Elect and it was in Him that His people were chosen before they ever existed, removing all doubt about Who does the saving. (Ephesians 1:4)     I LOVE TO HEAR of Divine substitution, for it was Christ Jesus, my Lord, my Savior, and my God...

Freely Given - Published on February 8, 2021
...    You say you are unworthy of the least of God’s mercies.  Aren’t you glad Christ is worthy and that the redemption He accomplished was for the unworthy?  You say you have no goodness or merits to claim.  Aren’t you thankful God accepts sinners based upon the goodness and merits of His Son?  You say the law affords you no hope.  Right you are, but the Gospel declares that the mercy and grace of God is freely given to sinners because of the d...

...1.  Be honest in all your dealings with God and men.  You’ll never have to look over your shoulder with regrets. 2.  Be grateful for every kind word or deed directed toward you.  Learn to say “thank you” (and really mean it). 3.  Be respectful of others; treat them as you would have them treat you (Luke 6:31). 4. Be mindful that “every good gift and every perfect gift comes from above” (James 1:17).  Acknowledge that the Lord is go...

We Have Been Admiring our Vile Selves! - Published on February 4, 2021
..."I hate pride and arrogance!" - Proverbs 8:13     What a monster of pride is man! How full of that cursed venom, is human nature! We cannot receive any grace or blessing from the Lord--but corrupt nature is prone to be proud of it, and to boast in it! No one is exempt from this. I appeal to your hearts. I refer to your experience.  When your heart has been enlarged in prayer;  when your soul has been carried out in humblings, meltings, longings, aspi...

Contending for the Faith with a Right Motive - Published on February 3, 2021
...“... Whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. ”  - I Corinthians 10:31     This text leaves no question as to what the motive of every saved person should be. All of our actions should emanate from a desire to magnify the Lord. The text is all-comprehensive, and leaves no thought, word, or deed to be executed without God’s glory being its design and premeditated end. A mock or superficial motive can stimulate the flesh, but such a motive will never p...

Marriage Tip : Compatibility - Published on January 25, 2021
...    When our marriages get in real trouble one of our enemy's favorite lies is to make us question getting married in the first place. Here's what it sounds like...     We were too young, we didn't know what we were doing... We've changed and grown in different directions... or the biggie, We've fallen out of love. They all say the same thing: If we had to choose over, we wouldn't choose one another. We're not compatible, we're not a fit. ...

An Exposition Upon Psalm 130 - Published on January 23, 2021
...1. Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD. 2. Lord, hear my voice; let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications. 3. If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? 4. But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared. 5. I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. 6. My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning. 7. Let Israel ...

I Will Come Again - Published on January 20, 2021
...    Since the first of December I have almost completely stopped watching the national news.  But this morning Joyce had Newsmax on and so when I heard that president Trump was getting ready to fly off in Air-force One for the last time I decided to watch and hear what he had to say.  I admit that I was very sad to see him go because he has done so much for this great country and has been so unfairly treated.     As I listened to him talk I knew that his and Mela...

Accepted in the Beloved - Published on January 3, 2021

Let Us Be Positive - Published on December 28, 2020
...    Brothers, let us be very careful that we do not make our religion a matter of what error we don't believe and what abuses we don't practice. Satan lays a devious trap in the way of many by making them think that the recognition of error is the same thing as the belief of the truth or that recognizing the wrong path is the same thing as walking on the right path. I have met people whose entire religion lay in what false doctrine they did not believe and what "inconsiste...

The Offensiveness of the Gospel - Published on November 19, 2020
...    I do not want to be negative, but it is a fact that there are many who find the doctrine of salvation by the sovereign grace of God to be greatly offensive.  To say to the natural man that it is the will of God that reigns supreme in all things, including salvation, and not man’s will (Romans 9:16), is to go against the tide of popular religious belief.  Why do people become adamant in their opposition to salvation by absolute, divine-distinguishing mercy?  Her...

Doctor or Brother? - Published on November 8, 2020

Did He not have a right in His sinless decree To mark the way for both you and for me?   If He did decree just what we should do, I cannot arraign Him, say brother, can you? Before...

Election Thoughts - Published on November 4, 2020

We have been bombarded with campaign ads decrying the opposition candidate as evil incarnate with the one making the ad claiming to be the only hope we have of holding back the wave of destruction the opposition will most certainly bring.     But the child of God does not have to participate in that frenzy. We do not have to act as thou...

A Lamb with a Wolf's Head! - Published on October 28, 2020

They should consider His character as a model of their own; and be conspicuous for their . . .   poverty of spirit,   meekness,   gentleness,   and love.      It is matter of surprise and regret, that many people seem to thi...
