Salvation by sight, not faith alone? Hello?

Invalidating the Doctrine of A 1000 Year Reign of Christ

And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.  – Revelation 20:4 (Literal translation) The validity of the doctrine of a 1000 year reign of Jesus Christ on this earth is easily dismissible as completely illogical and invalid. The passage quoted above is a literal translation. Note it carefully. For those readers who have […]

Two Resurrections, Thousand years Between ‘Em and A Dispensationalist In A Pear Tree

This is a follow up post regarding the millennial teaching of a double physical resurrection which I dealt with recently. Why a follow up? Because I’ve been asked to explain something in this comment received. Pay attention to what this guy asks: I accept that the Thessalonians passage describes only one resurrection – that of […]

How Many Resurrections Will There Be?

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. – I Thessalonians 4:16 The passage quoted above is often used by millennialists as a proof text confirming the teaching of a double resurrection, […]

The Only ‘Israel of God’

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light – I Peter 2:9 When God the Holy Spirit spoke through the Apostle Peter, calling Christians “a […]

Israel and the Church

Not replacement. Gentile inclusion.

1689 Federalism vs Dispensationalism

“Understand the differences between the particular Baptist covenant theology of the 2nd London Baptist Confession of Faith and Dispensationalism.”

Christian, It’s Time to Fight

The Church is glorious precisely because it is militant regarding doctrine. Lose that, and you’re left with Romper Room for adults. Of course, these days, even if you don’t have a clue what Romper Room is, trust me, it’s popular. HT

Marcionism, Dispensationalism and New Calvinism

Dispensationalism is the vehicle through which Marcionism has returned under the cloak of orthodoxy, with its antinomian battle cry ‘we’re not under Law but under Grace!’ No Reformer or Puritan would have tolerated lawlessness as fruit suitable to repentance; and yet, that is exactly what Dispensationalism has produced. And in an ironic twist, the theologically […]

R.C. Sproul: Dispensationalism Brought Us the ‘Carnal Christian’, the ‘Sinners Prayer’ and more Antinomianism

When you get the opportunity, I encourage you to listen and watch the video below featuring RC Sproul (and Jr.), Steve Lawson, Robert Godfrey and Sinclair Ferguson. While there is a discussion on various theological subjects, the heresies of dispensationalism is prominent, taking up the first 20 minutes of an 57 minute presentation. Here is […]

John MacArthur: Take the Mark of the Beast, Still Be Saved

Listen very carefully to John MacArthur’s teaching here. Lord willing, I’ll share my thoughts with you on this soon.

How Dispensationalism Proclaims a False Gospel (#1)

This is not complicated. One of the main tenets of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is this: Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures. God, through the apostle Paul, made a very clear statement to all mankind. Read it: For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that […]

Dispensationalism is Not New (Anybody Else? #1)

This is the first of a new series (seriously). Do you really need  an introduction to it? I didn’t think so. – JT Claim: Dispensationalism is not new, it’s been around forever. Response: Throughout the history of Christian thinking since the Apostles, redemption by faith alone has never had as its foundation that God was […]

A Day of Rank Compromise

There was a time when men died, were burned at the stake for God’s truth. Nowadays, men compromise the truth to glorify themselves. If you are “Gospel strong” and refuse to address heresy like dispensationalism and those who teach it, then you are not “Gospel strong” at all.

Coming Up: How Dispensationalism Proclaims A False Gospel

I recently asked my astute readers a simple question: Would anyone be interested in a list of ways that dispensationalism proclaims a false gospel? Yea? Nay? The response by comment and email was an overwhelming “Yes!” Ok, then. A series is underway. And you’re welcome. Clarification on the subject is much needed. I’ve begun writing […]

John MacArthur: The Mantra of Bad Theology (Video)

The message from John MacArthur in this video is fascinating, especially coming from a dispensationalist. I don’t know whether to call it hypocrisy, or blindness – but it is interesting, to say the least. Watch for my next post on this. In the meantime, comments are open.

Christians Supporting A False Gospel

There is nothing holy about the dirt in the Middle east. More so, there is nothing holy about a people anywhere who are at enmity with Jesus Christ. Yet, reportedly 60% of evangelicals have believed and are proclaiming from pulpits and podiums across this globe that both a land and a people in the Middle […]

Believing the Bible is God’s Word Is Not Enough

Today I asked Jerry Johnson, known for his informative Christian YouTube video series about standing against the world a serious question: Q: Why do you think there is not a greater outcry against dispensationalism, and it’s most well-known spokesman, John MacArthur? His answer was this: Ans: Because as popular teachers go he at least stands […]

Satan: Neither Prince nor Ruler of This World

The consummation of the kingdom of God is eschatological. However, the present reality of the kingdom is certainly not, nor is that of the present reign of Jesus Christ as King of kings. It is a great comfort to the Church that at the right hand of God is seated He Who reigns supremely over […]
