Are You Called to Preach? - Published on September 6, 2019
...     Do you think you are called to preach? Do you know a zealous man who thinks he is? So what is “this calling” of which we hear often spoken? All throughout the evangellyfish churchianity world, young men get this burning in their bosom that they are “called to preach.” My question for all those that think they are called is this… “PREACH WHAT!?”      What exactly are these men called to preach? They think they a...

The Four Aspects of Justification - Published on September 4, 2019
...     Throughout the years, I've discovered there are multiple aspects or perspectives of the justification of God's people.  These different aspects can be best understood as from God's perspective and the believer's perspective.  There is an aspect of the work of justification that has occurred in the past, and there is still an aspect that is yet to come.  Some brethren when speaking of the doctrine of justification fail to differentiate betwe...

The Elect Have Never Been the Objects of God's Wrath - Published on August 29, 2019
...     The notion that God has an attribute or disposition of hell-wrath toward his elect in pre-conversion days--then changes his mind to a disposition of love and grace in the post-conversion days of his elect: this amounts to a denial of God's immutability. It is certainly true that EXPERIENTIALLY the elect are children of wrath or seething rage against God in their pre-conversion days. However, the disposition of God (as opposed to man) is irrespective of time. God justifies...

What Does Made Sin Actually Mean? : Part 4 of 4 - Published on August 18, 2019
...      Parts one, two, and three of this article series were recently published.  My final part in this article series will deal with Clay Curtis's sermon titled, The Blessing of Imputation.  It can be viewed or listened to in its entirety on Sermon Audio.  But for the purpose of analysis and commentary, I transcribed it in its entirety and have made it available for download.  I think this is an important sermon to listen to because it really...

Debunking the 'Great Satan' Myth : Part 1 : The Biblical Argument - Published on August 17, 2019
...“One Little Word Shall Fell Him.”  Martin Luther, A Mighty Fortress Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour; whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, streng...

What Does Made Sin Actually Mean? : Part 3 of 4 - Published on August 15, 2019
...    Part one and part two of this series of articles on the made sin controversy were published not too long ago.  I've received comments, and most of them have been positive.  But there has been some mild criticism/objections, which I expected.  I'm a big boy, so send your comments my way, I want to hear what you have to say.  My feelings aren't gonna be hurt, I can tell you that.     I have not heard from anyone from the "made sin&quo...

What Does Made Sin Actually Mean? : Part 2 of 4 - Published on August 9, 2019
...Note:  You can read part one of this article here.  You can read part three of this article here.      I've still been thinking about the "made sin" controversy.  I've received some feedback on my last article, but mostly not much of a response.  I want to get to the bottom of this and clarify even further what I think really is going on.      Joe Terrell has written an article that I believe represents well...

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...

Modified Covenant Thelogy : CT vs. DT vs. NCT vs. MCT - Published on August 2, 2019
...     I put together my original CT vs. NCT vs. MCT article about 15 years ago, and I originally made some errors in my understanding of Covenant Theology (CT).  I'm publishing a new article today in 2019 so that I can correct my mistakes and give a more accurate presentation of my beliefs today.  I will say that my theology has not changed in over fifteen years.  The things I believe today, I believed in 2004. Key: CT = Covenant Theology DT = Dispens...

Adam's Original Sin - Published on July 18, 2019
...Introduction     I'm writing this article to address the common understanding of Adam, the imputation of sin, and who he truly represented in his fall.  Please be advised that before you really dig in to this article, that I do veer strongly away from the common understanding of Adam and his relationship to us.  This may challenge some of your long-standing beliefs, but I hope that you walk away with a better understanding of what I believe, and quite possibly emb...

God Loves Fags - Published on July 16, 2019
...    I'm titling this short article "God Loves Fags" as a response to the "God Hates Fags" message you have probably heard spoken of by the Westboro Baptist Church in the mainstream media.  Ironically,  on the surface, I agree with their statement regarding God's hatred of people.  God does indeed hate people - and He hates homosexuals - some of them at least.  He also hates non-homosexuals.  He hates all kinds of peopl...

The Day You Were Converted - Published on July 15, 2019
...    I've noticed amongst some believers, there tends to be a great focus on the actual day one came to believe the Gospel, and that if you can't pin-point it, you may not know the Gospel.  I can certainly understand how this understanding came into being, so let me help you out if you're struggling with assurance.     The simple matter of fact is it doesn't matter when you came to believe the truth.  If you believe the Gospel now, you are one...
