I Would Have peace

I would have peace if I could just delude myself into thinking that assent to Gospel truth; knowledge of core biblical facts; a love for said truth and facts; and a desire to defend them before men… alone… evidenced salvation; I am under no such delusion. I would have peace if I had the assurance…

Doctrinal Orthodoxy: Thoughts On Edification

Thoughts On Edification 2 Timothy 3:16-17 “All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” To edify is essentially to build up, like one would a home or…

I’m not saying you always have to be right (I know I’m not) but what I…

TRUTH: PONDER DEEPLY…

PONDER DEEPLY HOW BETTER OFF WE WOULD BE IF WE COULD SPEAK THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, WITHOUT POLITICAL CORRECTNESS, AND WITHOUT EXCESS TRIGGERING AND HURT FEELINGS THEN PONDER DEEPLY HOW BETTER OFF WE WOULD BE IF WE COULD TAKE THE NECESSARY ACTION, REAL, CONCRETE ACTION, WITHOUT UNINFORMED OPPOSITION, WITHOUT SELF-INTERESTED INTERFERENCE, AND WITHOUT SLANDER…

Ministerial Warning Concerning the Law of God

MINISTERIAL WARNING… If one cannot distinguish between (a) striving to keep the law to OBTAIN a righteousness that satisfies God, one that is apart from (and thus opposed to) the finished work of Christ on the cross and (b) endeavouring to live uprightly, in accordance with God’s extant law (i.e. all of the imperatives/commands for…
