Matt Walsh, James White and other Absurdities

Yes, I’ve been busy gardening and putting food on the table. No apologies. Two articles are coming up soon. Stay tuned people.

Joel Taylor Responds to James White, Ivey Conerly, Voddie Baucham and Shai Linne

Dr. James White hosted a special Dividing Line with guest Voddie Baucham, Shai Linne, and Ivey Conerly. The purpose of the online discussion was to discuss the controversy about Reformed Rap and ‘holy’ hip-hop, specifically after a reformed panel discussion on the worship of God. The following videos are quite interesting. First up, a personal […]

Ergun Caner: One Man’s Jihad Against Christian Evangelism of Muslims

How about exposing those who deny Jesus is sitting on David’s throne as King of kings as declared fulfilled by Scripture, say, like John MacArthur for example? Oh wait, sorry, I forgot that the Kingship of Jesus Christ is a “secondary issue” to so many. Never mind. Presented by James White:

Where Francis Turretin Went Wrong

Every now and then, you run across a weak, weak argument that is just chock full of helpful stuff for the Church at large. That happened today, and I couldn’t pass it up. On FaceBook, Francis Turretin made this statement, highly ‘liked’ by so many ‘new reformationists’, new calvinists and others too naïve and ignorant […]

KJV Debate: James White vs Jack Moorman

If you’ve never seen this debate, I highly encourage you to watch and listen carefully. Take notes. Yeah, grab a notebook and pen and get ready to learn.  Yes, I know, it’s lengthy, almost an hour and a half long. However, it is well worth the time spent. James does an outstanding job of educating […]

Solid Ground, Not Thin Ice

And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him. – Hebrews 9:27,28 (ESV) I have attempted […]

The Greater Cause

Silence regarding these things that are harming the Church does not bring glory to God, and your inaction helps no one. – Joel Taylor In 2011, according to one abortion statistic, there were approximately 1.2 million abortions. It’s an important issue, and one which is discussed and hotly debated in the blogosphere often. So is […]

James White: Just Being Silly

Given the heresies of dispensationalism led, at least these days, by John MacArthur, you tell me dear reader: who’s being silly? Or should I say, turning a blind eye? Certainly not I. Heresy is God’s Word plus something else. And heresy is never more subtle, or dangerous, than when mixed with God’s truth. The sad […]

Is Repentance A ‘Secondary Issue’?

I recently made a public request for Dan Phillips of the PyroManiacs blog (or what’s left of it) to respond to his position on repentance. I did so because Dan takes the position that many will be able to repent and be saved after our Lord Jesus Christ returns again. God has declared clearly before […]

New Calvinism & The Sin of Syncretism

The Gospel Coalition. John Piper. John MacArthur. Albert Mohler. Collin Hansen. Tim Keller. Justin Taylor. Don Carson. Russell Moore. Tim Challies. James White. Thabiti Anyabwile. Mark Driscoll… Those who promote holy hip-hop are committing the sin of syncretism, for they are seeking to worship the Lord by means of pagan hip-hop culture. From newcalvinist.com: We […]

Worldly Evangelism–It Stinketh to High Heaven

I am very disappointed. James White has coupled himself with hip-hop artists and new calvinist methods in order to proclaim a biblical message in a popular way. In other words, using what the world loves in order to reach the world. It is both shameful and inexcusable. For the record, if the genre of music […]

A People Who Call Evil Good, and Good Evil

Western culture as a whole, and the United States in particular, has had a tremendous amount of light from God, and experienced many blessings from His hand. Yet, this culture seems intent upon continuing on its path to self-destruction. A few thoughts from the Christian worldview (while we are still allowed, we would hope, to […]

James White’s Review of Roger Olsen’s Book “Against Calvinism”

Roger Olson doesn’t like to debate, and he doesn’t like to defend his assertions, either, but that won’t stop us from reviewing his book! A very troubling aspect of Olson’s book: he admits that even if God revealed that He does exist, and act, as Calvinists say He does, *Olson would refuse to worship Him.* […]

Top Ten Reasons Not to Join A Reformed Baptist Church

(Are you new to 5ptsalt? Be sure and get regular updates on Twitter at www.twitter.com/joeltaylor_ ) Dr. James White has some pretty honest reasons why, if you are shopping for a local Christian fellowship, you may want to dismiss a Reformed Baptist Church. You tell ‘em Doc. You don’t get to leave after every sermon feeling good about […]

A Foundation for Morality?

If you do not listen to Dr. James White’s The Dividing Line, I encourage you to do so. The phone calls from listeners alone are worth your time. Here is a perfect example from a woman who called in attempting to defend homosexuality and who attempted to express her view of what determines right and […]

Where Is The Church in the Ergun Caner Scandal?

Where is the church as a whole in this scandal? More specifically, where is Thomas Roads Baptist Church in all this? Why should they be involved? Because there is a member of their church, Ergun Caner, who has stood behind dozens of pulpits across the nation lying to the people sitting in front of him, […]

The Pastor-Teacher: One Calling, One Office

I do not in any way entertain the idea that I will persuade my brethren who differ from me as regards this gift of pastor-teacher. In fact, it is not my intent today to persuade, but rather to give my reasoning on why I hold the position to be true to the intent of the […]

‘Dragged’ to Glory…and Thankful!! Pt.1

“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day.” (ESV) “No one is able to come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up in the last day.” (literal) – John 6:44 […]
