The Ecumenical Pansy-ism of Dr. Russell Moore

You can tell a lot about someone’s theology and tendency to pander or be politically correct by reading what they write about. I do not say that in a pejorative way. Well, it’s true, I fail to appreciate (read “can’t stand” ) being ‘PC’ and pandering is not one of my strong points. When it […]

Bleating Wolves & Ecumenicals: The Meaning of Evangelicals and Catholics Together

Part of the immediate problem [within the Church] is that many so-called evangelical churches and leaders spent much of the mid-twentieth century separating themselves from those who preached separation from unbelief. The neo-evangelicals had such a horror of separation that they had to separate from the separationists. Carl Henry was one of the leaders of […]

A Principle for Spiritual Discernment

You will gain an enormous amount of spiritual discernment in our 21st-century world if you understand this one principle. Catholics, charismatics, and Mormons have this in common: they usurp (in different ways) the authority Christ gave exclusively to the first-century apostles. – Don Green Note: I would add the same charge to new Calvinists and […]

Abortion, Capital Punishment & A Dubious Agenda

Ever noticed how weakly and by what technique much of Catholicism and so-called mainline Protestantism (especially of the more liberal persuasion) engages the evil of abortion? They often falsely and dishonestly link abortion with capital punishment as though there was some sort of obvious and compelling moral equivalence between the two. They will argue thus: […]

Thomas Shepard: The Sin Of Resting In Duties

Puritan Thomas Shepard (1605-1649) shows us how it is quite possible for a professing Christian to be more of an ivy than a branch of the true Vine. Comparing ‘resting in duties’ with works-salvation, Shepard displays eleven ways professing Christians make the same mistakes taught in Roman Catholic doctrine. – JT I say, woe to […]

James White On The God-Centered Gospel

When you miss the centrality of God’s Kingly Freedom in glorifying Himself, the rest of the biblical revelation will become muddled and self-contradictory. Here’s an example.

Richard Bennett, a former Roman Catholic priest, presents an informative and eye-opening examination of how the Roman Catholic cult and the emergent ‘church’, with their Bible-twisting, gay-affirming leaders such as Tony […]

H. Rondel Rumburg: The Dangers of Contemplative Spirituality & Mysticism

The following is an excerpt from the preface to an excellent essay by Horatius Bonar which has been entitled Contemplative Theology by Dr. Rumburg. The booklet deals with devotional literature and the danger posed by many faulty devotional books such as produced by Roman Catholic mysticism. Do not confuse contemplative theology with the modern error […]

Manhattan, We Have A Problem

The Manhattan Declaration. It was a featured segment on Al Mohler’s radio program recently, and I admit, I’d not read it. But, eventually I became curious. Any time national religious leaders make allegedly ‘historic’ declarations, well, it makes you want to look doesn’t it? So I did. I read it, and afterwards, after being informed […]
