Thirteenth Street Baptist Church : Our Creed - Published on August 7, 2019
...     Our church 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? Scripture alone. We do not bow to the writings of men to guide us in doctrine and practice. We cannot wholeheartedly support the old confessions of faith written by well-meaning, but sinful men. There are no Baptist denominational rules that govern this church. We look to “the Word of Truth,”...

Sanctified by the Spirit - Published on August 6, 2019
...     Truth - God's people, at conversion, are Sanctified by the Spirit, NOT by the Law. What about after conversion? Still not Sanctified by the Law. Seems many are thinking they are Sanctified by works and or Law. Nope! Sanctification is by sovereign grace. The Spirit is effectual in His work. This is not a hard saying, only to the unbeliever. Grace is sufficient as the just shall live by faith and walk in the Spirit. This is God's wise purpose. Are you satisfied with tha...

I’m Only a Sinner Saved By Grace - Published on August 6, 2019
...     A man who really knows God never graduates above that statement right there — "I'm only a sinner saved by grace." He may grow in grace, grow in talent, grow in gifts and grow in knowledge, but he's still only a sinner saved by grace....

Without Christ Religion is a Sunless Firmament - Published on August 6, 2019
...     That page is the brightest, in which most of Christ is found. That sermon is the brightest sermon, in which most of Christ is heard. That life is the brightest life, in which most of Christ is seen...without Christ religion is a sunless firmament; the home is no abode of peace; and prosperity is an adverse flood. Without Christ, birth is no boon, life is no gain, and death is a downfall into an unfathomable abyss...Can I know this and not beseech men to make Christ their all?...

What Does Made Sin Actually Mean? : Part 1 of 4 - Published on August 5, 2019
...     The made sin controversy has been brought up again in my mind.  It's been nearly 15 years since Mark Daniel was fired from his position at Eager Avenue Grace Church in Albany, GA for preaching and refusing to recant that Christ became an actual sinner on the cross.  If you're interested in hearing the actual sermon, and reading my response to it, I urge you to read my article about it.  I have heard that this article was printed, read, and pas...

Imputed Righteousness : Ground of All True Comfort - Published on August 5, 2019
...Now, to this place I have come, Through the living, joys and tears, This the end, the living 's done, Now the time for dying 's here. Would I could now take the book, Sin and shame all written down, Remove the days where I forsook Truth, and wisdom, Christ disowned! But being able, this to do, What days could then be found for me? Not one! And so, I look to You, Your cross and righteousness, to see, And know, by these You view my life, All of which I am ashamed, As ri...

Only One Thing Worthwhile - Published on August 5, 2019
...     In this world RIGHT NOW (with all we see around us), ... there is really only one thing worthwhile going on!        The quickening of our Lord's lost sheep, ... one foreordained lamb at a time!   All the rest is simply supportive to THAT end.  Through all of the high-drama, political scrambling, wars and weddings, .... Our Lord's real focus is making known to His own what He had determined to do for them (and finished completely at the...

The Reason He Loved Us - Published on August 4, 2019
...     Sometimes the gospel of grace appears to be at a very low ebb and the believers so few, as in the case of Elijah. But while the elect of God are but a few compared to the mass of false professors and worldlings, yet we were not loved nor chosen because we are MANY, and we will not be rejected because we are FEW! The reason He loved us is found not in us, but in Him, and He keeps us for the same reason....

Conditional Regeneration - Published on August 4, 2019
...     "Conditional regeneration"? You ever heard / seen this expression from Arminians?       What the heck is that?      Well, I guess it means (in the Arminian mind) that one's birth from above is conditioned upon their prior exercise of faith by their own free will...      You see, in Arminianism a person first believes in a christ out of their free will, and then they get themselves "born again"....

The Fruit of Progressive Sanctification - Published on August 4, 2019
...     A glorification / final salvation / entrance into heaven, which is made contingent upon some [unmeasurable] presence of a "fruit of progressive sanctification", is, in the final analisis, a salvation by works.       That's all there's to it, folks.       This conundrum explains for incipient (and overt) hopeless legalism of those churches and individuals, which espouse this becoming "holier and holier by sin...

Don't Do It My Friend - Published on August 4, 2019
...“The son of the bondwoman SHALL NOT be heir with the son of the freewoman” - Gen 21:10; Gal 4:30      Don’t do it my friend, oil and water don’t mix, neither do works and grace! So much of what is called worship, good doctrine and church growth is just that old bondwoman trying to force her way into the kingdom of God. I hear much talk about modern Christianity and to me it is simply that stinking flesh and rotten carcass called the heir of the bondwoman...

Grace + Works = Trouble - Published on August 4, 2019
...     In Paul’s writings to the church at Galatia; he mentions at least twice the fact that there were false preachers ‘troubling’ them and causing the Apostle much anguish of heart as well (Gal. 5). Let it be known that when you want to trouble the elect of God, the redeemed and chosen believer of grace, just add some works to the gospel and trouble you will get.      The true preacher of the grace of God desires to speak peace and comfort to th...

Recognizing Leprosy - Published on August 4, 2019
...“And there came a leper to Him…" - Mark 1:40      As I looked at this passage of scripture I thought to myself, ‘not many people in this country think too much or even know very much about this disease of leprosy’.  I wondered and noted that this is exactly what people think about sin in our day…that is they DON’T THINK ABOUT IT. It is in some one else, it is in a far away country and does not apply direct...

I Marvel That You Are So Soon Removed - Published on August 4, 2019
...I marvel that you are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel; which is NOT another, but there be some that trouble you and would pervert the gospel of Christ. - Gal 1:6-7 If thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt NOT build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast POLLUTED it. Exodus 20:25      Any perversion of the absolute free sovereign grace of God in the gospel of Christ ...

The Friend and Brother - Published on August 4, 2019
...Proverbs 17:17: A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.      Now I will confess that this verse indeed speaks of each and every redeemed of the Lord as they are friends one to another and brothers and sister’s one towards another. Yet, we must see Christ as having the ultimate fulfillment in this verse as in every passage of Holy writ! I can not nor can you ‘LOVE’ at all times, but I known one who as the Friend of sinners has and doe...

Tell What Great Things God Has Done For Us - Published on August 4, 2019
...Acts 18:24-28, (KJV), And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus. (25) This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John. (26) And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perf...

Knowing the Secrets of God - Published on August 4, 2019
...…..and Joseph answered Pharaoh saying, It is not in me; God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace”. -Genesis 41:16      God’s will and purpose shall be known by the sons and daughters of Adams race, but how and by whom shall God reveal such wonders of his grace and mercy? Joseph was the only one in the kingdom that understood and then revealed the perfect will of God to this sinful man. Our blessed and sovereign Redeemer is the only one that reveals and opens...
