A Lesson from Jonah

And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown. Jonah 3:4 Jonah preaches no more and no less than what God told him say. I would guess that he is pretty "put out" with the Lord anyway about having to […]

Dealing with Pig-Headed Christians

The difficulty in attempting to explain the meaning of a passage of Scripture to one who has his mind made up already is a task greater than a human being possesses. Aren’t you glad that it’s the Holy Spirit Who illumines believers’ minds—and not you? Of course, He does so—interestingly—not apart from but, through the […]

That 144,000 Thing in Revelation

Dan Phillips of the Pyromaniacs has a good question: He tweets: Explain this again: if the 144K in Rev. 7:4-8 are "spiritual Israel," then who are the innumerable crowds in v. 9? *Super*-spiritual Israel? — Dan Phillips (@BibChr) March 19, 2013 Let’s first look at the passage itself, Revelation 7:4-9: And I heard the number […]

Hiding God’s Word In Our Hearts

“Thy Word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against Thee” (Psalm 119:11). Meditate upon the Word: do not study it in a cursory manner, or content yourselves with a slight taste, or a little volatile affection; but ponder it seriously, that it may enter into your very heart. Hasty and […]

Ordo Salutis: The Order of Salvation

"Hello lightness, my old friend I’ve come to review you again Because a teaching softly creeping Left its seeds while I was reading And the vision that was planted in my brain Still remains But not within sound doctrine" – Simeon and Farflunkle Predestination: Rom. 8:29, 30; 9:1-25; Eph. 1:3-14; 2 Thess 2:12,13 Effectual Calling […]

Spiritual Bulimia

Stuart L. Brogden Several years ago, the news was full of stories of otherwise normal teenage girls who either didn’€™t eat enough to nourish their bodies (anorexia) or would consume massive quantities only to barf it up soon thereafter (bulimia). (Fine topics for a breakfast meeting, eh?) Although there’€™s not much news coverage of these […]

Michael Horton: The Importance of Studying Theology

Christianity.com asked Mike about the importance of studying theology for Christians. Mike discusses this by comparing our desire to gain knowledge in our other relationships… or even our iPhones. Horton on Theology, posted with vodpod HT

Salvations Praise Is Radical

Revelation 7:9, 10 and they [a great multitude which no one could count] cry out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” It was crying with a loud voice from an uncountable multitude, v.9. Away with our casual church services. Enough of those mumbled […]

C.H. Spurgeon: A Well-Ordered Life

A WELL-ORDERED LIFE NO. 878 DELIVERED ON SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 27, 1869, BY C. H. SPURGEON, AT THE METROPOLITAN TABERNACLE, NEWINGTON. “Order my steps in Your Word and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.” Psalm 119:133.        This is not the prayer of an unconverted man, or the cry of an awakened […]

While The Earth Remains…

A word from the Mrs… While the politicians sit in their halls of earthly power and debate global warming, the Hollywood elite put forth immorality in their trade and while the media pushes it all down our throats, I am so thankful that the Lord reigns. He is in control and pulls their strings, bringing about His […]

Tim Conway: The Holiness of God

Whatever Happened To God?

by Dr. James Montgomery Boice In any discussion of reformation in doctrine one must come to the realization that the real problem of our time is that there is hardly any doctrine at all to reform. So when we talk about reformation we must focus on a recovery of theology, period. Certainly in the liberal […]

Quick Study: Pentecost & John 7:39

38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” 39 Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.” John 7:38,39 (ESV) […]

A.W. Pink: The Supremacy Of God

  “Your thoughts of God are too human…” – Luther In one of his letters to Erasmus, Luther said, “Your thoughts of God are too human.” Probably that renowned scholar resented such a rebuke, the more so, since it proceeded from a miner’s son; nevertheless, it was thoroughly deserved. We too, though having no standing […]

(Peggy Peattie / Union-Tribune) According to SignOnSanDiego.com and a Union-Tribune staff writer, San Diego County has backed down from forcing a couple who has led Bible studies in their home for over 5 years to obtain a ‘permit’ to continue, […]

Answering Objections To Calvinism

Not long ago, I posted a video the owner entitled “Dear John, Calvin”, in which he challenged Christians far and wide to answer ten questions regarding calvinistic (read ‘Christian’) doctrine, which, if proved false, would mean that all Calvinists were lost, unregenerate. Well, that’s not good. Complete with background music the objections began, scrupulously laid […]
