How the SBC is Leading the Church Astray

Scripture: Exodus 34:12-16. Watch yourself that you make no covenant with the inhabitants of the land into which you are going, or it will become a snare in your midst. But rather, you are to tear down their altars and smash their sacred pillars and cut down their Asherim —for you shall not worship any […]

Reformation Heritage Books, New Calvinists and the Roman Catholic Connection

Here is a vital question: Will the steward be found faithful? (I Corinthians 4:2) Can a gospel minister be considered faithful to Christ and His Word who promotes the sale of books by those who proclaim error and associate with the enemies of Christ? That is the question which must be asked about Dr Joel […]

From Ralph Ovadal: Dear Friends, I am providing here a link to an article which was posted at Deseret News October 21, 2013. It is a report of Dr. Albert Mohler’s relationship with LDS officials and his recent speaking engagement at the Mormon Brigham Young University. I believe in civil and religious liberty.

Dr. Russell Moore. Busted.

From Peter Lumpkins: Russell Moore – Claims WSJ headline on his article ‘awfully misleading’ Russell Moore, Southern Baptists’ newest president at its commission on ethics and religious liberty, indicates on a C-Span interview that the Wall Street Journal got his interview totally backwards—“The headline has missing a word,” a word right before “pullback.” The word […]

The Relationship Between New Evangelicalism and New Calvinism

“New Calvinism is a broad tent that encourages doctrinal freedom, and discourages doctrinal disagreements. Both charismatic practices and some emerging church ideas have found an eager welcome in the New Calvinist tent. Despite lip service to the doctrines of Calvin, few in the New Calvinist movement adhere to the Westminster Confession of Faith, or the […]

Al Mohler: Very Thankful to Spend Time with A Man Who Glorifies Satan

John MacArthur: “Satan is now “the ruler of this world,” and until the Lord casts him out he will continue to rule.” – John MacArthur So, according to the beloved John MacArthur, Satan – not Jesus Christ, King of kings and Lord of lords, the One to whom all power and authority have been given […]

Brothers in Arms: Al Mohler & Rick Warren

Not to be negative, mind you, but since when did throwing your arm around a well-known heretic in brotherly affection edify, encourage, or comfort the Church? I’m just asking. Hey, Mohler tweeted it, he wants you to see this. Hugging women who are believers may, according to some, ruin a celebrity preachers reputation, maybe even his […]

Al Mohler, ‘Natural Evil’ and the Oklahoma Tornado

If a trumpet is blown in a city will not the people tremble? If a calamity occurs in a city has not the Lord done it? – Amos 3:6 The One forming light and creating darkness, causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the Lord who does all these. – Isaiah 45:7 Yesterday, a massive […]

Too Much Tebow

Well, I waited. I tried to ignore the whole thing, because really, I just didn’t care. But, the blogosphere became all ablaze with Tim Tebow and his cancellation to speak at First Baptist of Dallas. Then, Dr. Jeffress responded publically. If I were politically correct and a bootlicker, I would rave and heap praises on […]

When Chicken is More Important than God’s Word

I’m 50 years old. I’ve seen a lot in my day. On a television with only 3 channels, I watched the first manned rocket take off and head for the moon, and watched those fella’s walk on it and then come home. That was amazing. I’ve seen advances in technology that, when I look back […]

Russell Moore, Al Mohler–Blurring the Line Between the Holy & the Profane

From Newcalvinist: “Dr. Russell Moore spoke about how the church can dialogue with the hip-hop culture. He said: There is something in hip-hop that we can learn from in all kinds of ways, in our evangelism, in our discipleship, in our preaching, especially in our preaching. He asserted that the lyrics of rap music are […]

Resolved 2012: A Herd of Unseen Elephants

This years promo video for the Resolved 2012 Conference is interesting in a number of ways, and I won’t even talk about how the promo looks like the latest blockbuster release from 20th Century Fox….well, guess I just did, never mind. First of all, let’s be clear on at least this much: I’m not against […]

The False Doctrine of Gospel Sanctification

…the New Calvinists teaching that confuses justification with sanctification makes justification progressive – and that, my brethren, is the difference between Protestant thinking, and Roman Catholicism. – Joel Taylor Many Christians within the Reformed camp are thinking like Roman Catholics. I’ll explain…. Timothy Kauffman of the Trinity Foundation has written an outstanding refutation of the […]

There’s a new book that many readers of 5ptsalt may want to check out. I’ve been reading the authors blog for awhile now, and, I have to say, it has my attention. In fact, I just received a copy of it today in the mail from the author. [Note: This is not a formal book […]

Taylor on DeYoung, Duncan & Mohler

I said last week I’d hoped to tell you why I don’t buy into this new Calvinism stuff, so here it is. I mentioned it might possibly be over a series of multiple posts, but, as it turns out, I don’t think that’s necessary at all. My reasons for rejection are pretty straightforward. The Gospel […]

DeYoung, Duncan, Mohler on New Calvinism

I’m not buying into this, and next week, Lord willing, I will go into details precisely why, probably in a series of posts.

When Should We Separate from Others?

Sometimes, entries into the combox make for good conversation. Here are a few comments from a ‘PatQ3c’ after reading The Reformed Downgrade: Exposing New Calvinism: Mohler signed the Manhattan Declaration with roman catholic. Do we need to separate from them? This morning I think the answer should be positive. If we separate from apostate and […]
