Pristine Grace

Welcome to Pristine Grace

     Welcome to the Pristine Grace Website!  We hope you enjoy the discussion forum,  articles, books, 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 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.

     This website is currently edited and operated by Brandan Kraft in St. Louis Missouri.  It is dedicated to all the brethren scattered abroad, but especially to the dear brothers and sisters he knows and loves in Christ.  Special thanks go out to Bob Higby, Bill Parker, Jim Casey, Greg Winegar, Eileen Beckett, Scott O’Nanski, Nicolas Laurienzo, Milton Almeida, Richard Warmack, Jim Byrd, Scott Price, John Pedersen, Craig Miklosik, Stanley PhillipsEd Vrell, James JohnsonJames Guyo, Stan Terry, Tim James, Gary Shepard, Jason Smith, Ron Trabandt, John Gill, Henry Mahan, William Gadsby, Augustus Toplady, Mike Smith, John Robbins, Marc Lidgett, his bride Angie, and too many others to list here!   We truly have a lot of friends in the Gospel.
