5PtSalt Lives

Ok, so most of you have realized I’ve been “offline” for awhile. Good. At least you’re paying attention. After much contemplation, we’re back online. It was close people. I almost didn’t renew it. I won’t go into all the details of the why’s and whatnots and bottom lines. Fact is, it’s been a lot of […]

Paul Washer Church Plant Still Pushing Mysticism

As most readers of this blog know, my family once attended Paul Washer’s church plant in Radford Virginia. We eventually left (and not soon enough) due to doctrinal differences which I felt – and knew – were not what most would call ‘secondary’. As a minister, I do not see how anything in God’s Word […]

Reformation Heritage Books, New Calvinists and the Roman Catholic Connection

Here is a vital question: Will the steward be found faithful? (I Corinthians 4:2) Can a gospel minister be considered faithful to Christ and His Word who promotes the sale of books by those who proclaim error and associate with the enemies of Christ? That is the question which must be asked about Dr Joel […]

Tickling Ears

Today, Thabiti Anyabwile tweeted this interesting quote by C. S. Lewis, which was in turn retweeted by Paul Washer: Brethren, what is wrong, that is, unbiblical, with this quote by Lewis? Here’s a couple of hints: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God – Romans 3:23 and the exhortation to […]

Joel Beeke Goes Ecumenical, Joins the New Calvinist March Back to Rome

The post below was originally written July of 2012 by Ralph Ovadal and Ivan Foster. It contains much information (and links) revealing how Dr. Joel Beeke has left the solid foundations of Biblical theology and compromised himself in the New Calvinist march back to Rome – a road on which all new calvinists are walking, […]

New Calvinists in An Active Roman Catholic Monastery

Where, pray tell, is the stand against Romanism? – JT From Ralph Ovadal: “When are star-struck evangelicals going to wake up and stop blindly following grossly compromised celebrity ministers? I am talking specifically now about even men who supposedly hold the line and contend for the faith but who “say, and do not”—men such as […]

Obsession of a HeartCry Missionary Continues

Update, Tuesday, 8-13-2013: I have decided that to spend any further time on this matter would neither be profitable nor edifying, to myself or anyone else. Have an outstanding day Church. Go forth, and be awesome, in and by Him. Well, as of this evening, we are still being harassed by a [Paul Washer] HeartCry […]

Stalkers by HeartCry Missionary Society

These two men are messing with my family. This is going to stop. Click the photo for what these boys have done.

Missionaries Gone Wild

They made a serious mistake in coming with their intended purpose. The hubris and their unChristian intentions were quickly seen. They lasted less than ten minutes before being asked to leave, and went away with their tails between their legs. I have been contacted by not a few who, out of concern, desire to know […]

The Compromise of Lecrae and Those Who Promote Him

‘Holy’ hip-hop artist Lecrae has won a Grammy award. But he wouldn’t want to be called a holy hip-hop artist, or even a Gospel artist. Tell that to those who promote him, like the Gospel Coalition, John MacArthur and Grace-to-You, or John Piper and his Desiring God ministries. Why wouldn’t he want to identify with […]

Persecuted Church Seeing Angels?

It was another Sunday. My family arrived to our meeting place of worship on time, maybe a little early. We took our usual seats. This Sunday would be a little different. It would include a presentation of the purposes of a particular missionary society and a special speaker from a foreign land. He would not […]

A Challenge to “Missionary” Advocates

There are some who are intent on teaching that all Christians are not missionaries. That is a fundamental ignorance of basic Scriptural truth. How many times is the word ‘missionary’ used in the Bible? Zero. I challenge any Christian to show where the Bible differentiates between a disciple of Jesus of any age (YOU!) and […]

Truth vs Fallacy #1: “The Gospel Is the A-Z of Christianity”

  Fallacy: “The Gospel is the A-Z of Christianity.” – Tim Keller, Paul Washer (and here), the young, restless and reformed (YRR) movement of new Calvinism Truth: Therefore leaving the elementary teaching about the Christ, let us press on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward […]

“That Church is Too Far Away”

I get asked a certain question quite often, namely, “How far is too far to attend a church?” Wow. Is it that hard to answer? Don’t get me wrong, I know all about driving distances when it comes to churches. Throughout the 90’s and into 20’whatever, I’ve driven about an hour to church every Sunday. […]

The Beauty of A Simple Reconciliation

Some folks do things for selfish reasons. Others, like the Pharisees, do so to be noticed among men and lauded as spiritually mature. But not everyone. One Sunday, while my family was attending Radford Fellowship, a church plant by Paul Washer and the HeartCry Missionary Society, we were preparing to partake of the Lord’s Supper. […]

Playing God with Your Own Heart

In the latter part of 2010, my family began attending Radford Fellowship, a church plant by Paul Washer and the HeartCry Missionary Society, and around the Christmas holiday of 2012, after weeks of prayer and struggling with the decision, I removed my family from that fellowship for doctrinal reasons. It was not an easy decision. […]

Becoming More Noble-Minded

The brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea, and when they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews. Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so. – Acts 17:10,11 […]

Why I’ll Never Refer to the Gospel As ‘Scandalous’

I will never refer to the Gospel of Jesus Christ as scandalous because God, in His written Word to mankind, never did. Why then should I? The Gospel is good news, not scandalous, that is, by definition – representative of wicked behavior. Only Gods Son, Jesus, was ever referred to as such. See, I lay […]

Contemplate Only the Gospel, Remain Immature in the Faith

There is a movement afoot for sometime now that would keep the Church in milk and wallow in immaturity. Don’t get me wrong, the milk of God is pure, wonderful and much needed. However, to remain on the milk of God’s Word is the goal neither of God for His redeemed ones according to His […]

Grasping the Gospel

I am angry. Not in a sinful way, but I am angry. I am angry that there are preachers and teachers out there in this world who are doing their dead-level best to convince you, my brethren, that you will never fully comprehend the Gospel. Listen to me. If you cannot comprehend the Gospel, you […]
