The Theological Foundation of the Modern Missionary Movement - Published on July 22, 2004
...It is an assumed thing among the majority of professing Christians today that the theological foundation of the modern missionary movement is of God, and is, therefore, beyond reproach. Indeed, it is considered by the supporters of missionary enterprise well-nigh sacrilegious for any to question the Scripturalness of its theology. Yet, since God's people are commanded to "test the spirits, whether they are of God" (I John 4:1), the theological foundation of missionism can, claim no immunity from...

Remarks on Duty Faith - Published on July 21, 2004
...The following is an excerpt from the work DUTY FAITH by a eighteenth century English Baptist named John Forman. This is just a small quote that deals with two aspects of duty faith that we believed to be of importance. Lord willing we hope to hav more quotes from this work by this servant of God from a bygone generation. Implications of faith unto salvation being the natural man's duty. The two words law and faith are very comprehensive, systematical terms; very different in their nature, and ...

Duty Faith & Repentance - Published on July 21, 2004
...From: SIGNS of the TIMES: Vol.7 (1839) An enquiry concerning the duty of the unregenerate to believe, repent or pray. PART 1. Brother Beebe: - I will now notice the charge which Brother Meredith has been informed is made against the Old School Baptists, that they hold it "not to be the duty of the unregenerate to believe, repent or pray." I will in my examination of this charge endeavor to show what there is of truth and what of falsehood in its several items. I will commence with the subject...

Duty Faith : Part II - Published on July 21, 2004
...SUPPOSED SCRIPTURE COMMANDS TO DUTY FAITH EXAMINEDTHE PHILLIPPIAN JAILORA word of instruction to the spiritually awakened We are told that faith unto salvation is the natural man's duty 'by express command.' And if we ask where such a command is to be found, we are answered, 'The Jailor, for instance, was commanded to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, that he might be saved,' Acts xvi 31. And this one text 'is selected as alone sufficient proof.' And as this text is selected to answer for all, ...

Duty Faith : Part I - Published on July 21, 2004
...The Reason for writing these remarks Sir, I am, from the truth, example, and authority of the new testament word of God, a Strict Baptist communionist, knowing most assuredly, that no man, living under the profession of the name of Christ, can really regard and solemnly take that holy word for the standard of his faith and sole rule of his life, and not be so. But having, on the 17th of December last, received some papers, in the form of circulars, from the above association, giving an outline...

Common Grace? - Published on July 20, 2004
...The phrase "common grace" has become standard in most "Calvinist" or "Reformed" or "Sovereign Grace" circles. It is accepted without question by the duped masses in fashionable Calvinistic "churches" who follow the popular "Reformed" authors rather than the Word of God. And anyone who would dare question it is dismissed out of hand and called any of a number of derogatory names. Call us what you will, we will follow the Word of God rather than the words of men. And, as anyone who is truly inte...

The Gospel Standard Articles of Faith - Published on July 19, 2004
...I We believe in the divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, and receive them as a gracious revelation of the mind and will of God (Deut. 4:2, Ps. 19:7, Prov. 30:5-6, 2 Pet. 1:19-21, Rev. 22:18-19, John 5:39); and we believe that therein are revealed all the doctrines and truths which we here state. (2 Tim. 3:15-17.) II We believe that there is but one living and true God (Exod. 3:14, Deut. 4:35, Deut. 6:4, Num. 23:19, 1 Sam. 2:2-3, Ps. 90:2, Ps. 115:3, Ps. 135:5, Ps. 139:7-10, Prov. 15:3, ...     Article Length: Long
The Gospel of Deceit - Published on July 13, 2004
...Calvinism confused Our Lord tells us to be balanced in our teaching, not giving that which is holy to the dogs, nor giving stones where bread is needed. This balance has been broken severely by the modern pseudo-Free-Offer movement. Spurgeon summed Calvinism up as 'salvation by grace alone', but views of Calvinists in relation to saving grace have drastically changed. Besides, Calvin would be appalled to learn that the saving Gospel which emanates from God but which is open to such contrary in...

Spurgeon on John Gill and Justification from Eternity - Published on July 11, 2004
...From Spurgeon's Sermons "Adoption", Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit Vol. 7 But there are one or two acts of God which, while they certainly are decreed as much as other things, yet they bear such a special relation to God's predestination that it is rather difficult to say whether they were done in eternity or whether they were done in time. Election is one of those things which were done absolutely in eternity; all who were elect, were elect as much in eternity as they are in time. But you may ...

Are There Invitations in the Proclamation of the Gospel? - Published on July 11, 2004
...     From Signs of the Times -September 15, 1904      It is so asserted by all religionists of the present day, and therefore perhaps it is well to ask whether it be so or not. With regard to this question, as with all others pertaining to the religion of Christ, the word of God itself must decide for us. We wish first of all to say that the word invitation does not occur in the New Testament at all, and in the Old Testament in the three places where it is used, ...

The Gospel is Not an Offer - Published on July 11, 2004
...Is the gospel something to be offered to the unregenerate? A great many Christians believe so. It has long been maintained that Christ himself, or eternal life is to be offered unto the lost for their rejection. However, we are convinced that the very concept of the gospel being an offer unregenerate represents a departure from the Scriptures in at least the following four things: first, what the gospel is; secondly, the purpose or utility of the gospel; thirdly, the doctrine of total depravity;...

Billy Talks to His Pastor about God - Published on July 11, 2004
...Billy: "Pastor, does God love everybody?" Pastor: "Yes, Billy (smile, pats him on the head). Billy: "How come it says in Romans 9 that he hated Esau?" Pastor: "Been reading your Bible, huh, Billy? (still smiles). Well, the Bible also says that God hates, but that only is talking about God's secret decree, and as far as we are concerned, he loves everybody." Billy: "Pastor?". Pastor: "Yes, Billy." Billy: "If God tel...

Confession of a Hyper-Calvinist - Published on November 3, 2003
...I have a confession to make. I'm a hyper-calvinist. Yes, that's right, I'm one of those people; you know the type that  hates everyone, refuses to preach the Gospel, hates God’s Holy law, breathes fire, and eats nails for breakfast . Anyway, it's not a label I’ve chosen for myself, it’s just that most people in the religious world would label me as such. Usually, there are many negative connotations that are implied in this label and it's not hard to pick up on them in the tones of the voices who slap this label on me. When I jump on Paltalk for a friendly conversation about the Bible and theology, it's a rare occasion when I don't hear a sneering individual boldly claim, "You're a hyper-calvinisssssssssssssssssst!"  ...
