John MacArthur: “You Can Be Saved By Sight”

Salvation by sight, not faith alone? Hello?

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.

When Leaders No Longer Lead

From JTM: “A good shepherd leads his sheep to pasture. He cares for their every need. He does not drive the sheep with the shepherds crook, but rather uses it to correct the wayward. Leadership, at any level, should know and follow the example of the Good Shepherd. Failure to do so leaves the sheep […]

1689 Federalism vs Dispensationalism

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

You Can Take the Israelite Out of Egypt, but…

Exodus 32. Wow. It almost makes my head swim to see the scene played out on the pages of Scripture, particularly verses one through six. Now when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, the people assembled about Aaron and said to him, “Come, make us [a]a god who will […]

The Most Ignored, Unanswered, Church Edifying Biblical Question of 2013

In June,  2012, I presented an open challenge, a question actually, to TeamPyro, specifically, Dan Phillips. It was (and is) also asked of Frank Turk and Phil Johnson – and John Macarthur. It’s a question that has been ignored and dismissed by these sycophants whose understanding of Scripture has been revealed and proved over and […]

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 […]

God Refutes the Doctrine of ‘Free Will’

Yesterday I posted this article relating Memorial Day to ‘the feasts’ which Israel was to observe every seventh year and made some practical applications. In a parallel passage, specifically Exodus 34:23-24, there is an interesting addition to what God says He will do for all the males of Israel who are being required to come […]

How to Completely Destroy the Doctrine of Grace

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us. In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an […]

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 […]

All the Promises of God

For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory. – 2 Corinthians 1:20 All of God’s promises, without exception, were and are made to and fulfilled in Christ Jesus. It is the most fundamental ignorance of […]

Come Out from Among Them

The Old Testament provides us with great examples of how God delivers people from the hands of evil. Such is but the physical type of that deliverance which is offered at the hand of God through Jesus Christ in which men are offered deliverance from the condemnation brought upon all mankind at the hands of […]

An Open Challenge to Dan Phillips

Update: 10/23/2012 I’m still hoping that Dan will offer an edifying response. Update: 6/14/2012 My attempt to open up a dialogue with Dan Phillips of ‘Teampyro’ on a salvific issue has been unsuccessful. Dan thinks my sincere question a ‘waste of time’. He’s wrong. It should be discussed. – JT  Dan, you are dispensationalist. I […]

The History of Rapture Theology in American Christianity

This video gives us an historical overview of the rise of rapture theology in popular Christianity and its harmful effects. Worth watching, because neither premillennialism, dispensationalism or postmillennialism makes any biblical sense. None at all. Millennialism is, in fact, one of the greatest heresies of our day. HT

Voting for Romney: Reflecting A Heart of Unbelief?

Here’s food for thought and discussion regarding the upcoming presidential election. While this video will make you think, it should not be construed as my own position.

The Prophets-Not to Be Understood in Any Jewish Sense

For this reason some Jews seized me in the temple and tried to put me to death. So, having obtained help from God, I stand to this day testifying both to small and great, stating nothing but what the Prophets and Moses said was going to take place; that the Christ was to suffer, and […]

Festus Tells A Bible Story

Good ‘ole Festus from the television series, Gunsmoke, stretches things just a little bit, when telling his friends how he crossed the Cimarron river on a cow to escape the bad guys. In the process, he gives his best recollection of how ‘this feller named Mose crossed a big crick’ while running from ‘the fairies’ […]

No Temporal Blessings for the Unregenerate

For the devious are an abomination to the Lord; But He is intimate with the upright. The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked, But He blesses the dwelling of the righteous. Though He scoffs at the scoffers, Yet He gives grace to the afflicted. The wise will inherit honor, But […]
