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 […]

2012 Eisogesis of the Year Award

Ok, so it’s January 7, 2013. This being an eisogesis award, and since 2012 is no longer here, I’ll just have to read into it. Seems only appropriate…. In fact, this particular award goes to a man who actually made this eisogetical gem back in November of 2011. Let’s read into that as well, again, […]

Why Some Christians Don’t Vote

Voting is a sin, and doubly true now, after the French Revolution. – J.N. Darby One reason many Christians refuse to be involved in politics and/or choose not to vote in political elections could be a result of the influence of modern dispensationalism as founded by J.N. Darby and the influence of others such as […]

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

The Health, Wealth & Prosperity Gospel of Evangelicals

I mentioned recently in this post, that, according to an NAE poll, over 65% of evangelicals hold to premillennial theology. One aspect of that which many have not considered is the plethora of promises being given to geo-political Israel which include the much despised teachings of Joel Osteen and the entire WOF movement: physical health […]

“Don’t You Ever Get Tired of This?”

Well folks, this will be off-the-cuff, so to speak, because I’m loaded with to-do’s today. Yesterday, I was asked the very pointed question of whether I ever get tired of smacking dispensationalism around, and specifically, John MacArthur. It’s a fair question. Ok, let me tell you a little bit of why I do it. First, […]

2015: How John MacArthur Denies the Grounds of Salvation

In Luke 1:31-33, an angel promised Mary three things regarding her son, Jesus; specifically, that Jesus: would be great and would be given the throne of His earthly ancestor, King David would reign over the house of Jacob forever and His kingdom, once established, would have no end. Scripture makes it indisputably clear that it […]

Is Dispensationalism Anti-Semitic?

Christians who do not agree with the unBiblical teaching of dispensationalism, specifically as it relates to the modern geo-political nation of Israel are often referred to as racists and anti-Semitic, but what about dispensationalists?

What Your Pastor Believes

Recently, I polled readers of 5ptsalt the following question: If Pelagius was right 75% of the time, but wrong on some crucial doctrines, would you sit under his teaching in the name of being an ally for the Gospel? The results? 80% of you overwhelmingly said ‘No’. 4% each said either yes, maybe or other. […]

John MacArthur’s Other Gospel

“And I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him, like […]

John MacArthur–Pushing Darby

The following is an historical timeline of sorts, showing the origins of American Dispensationalism. This teaching, founded upon a hard distinction between Israel and the Church, is still, despite it’s origin, being propagated, according to a recent poll by 65% of evangelicals. It is truly disturbing that proclaiming Jesus as King sitting on David’s throne […]

Reformed Theology Opposes John MacArthur

John MacArthur has a series of messages entitled “Why Every Calvinist Should Be a Premillennialist.” I don’t want to give the links, because I’d rather you not read them, but there it is. The transcriptions to his series are interesting, yes, but filled with non-biblical fancy and false presuppositions, which, needless to say is disappointing […]

Divinely Intended Spiritualization of Scripture (Part 1)

“Literal & Obvious” What God says is the Spiritual Reality Messiah should have been named Immanuel.  Isa. 7:14 But the prophecy was fulfilled and Jesus is His Name. Matt. 1:21 In the context of Hosea the nation of Israel would be delivered from the Egyptians. Hos. 11:1 But this prophecy was fulfilled in Israel-Messiah, the […]

A Glimpse of Pauline Hermeneutics

The hope and expectation of the Christian is not earthly or natural, but spiritual. It is not tainted with sin as a result of the fall of the first Adam, but is to be realized in its perfected state in the spiritual realm. It was thus indicated in the beginning of recorded Scripture by promise […]

Jesus Christ Is Israel

  It is written: Hosea 11:1 Matthew 2:14, 15 When Israel was a youth I loved him, and out of Egypt I called My Son. And he arose and took the Child and His mother by night, and departed for Egypt; and was there until the death of Herod, that what was spoken by the […]

Today, and Not Partially

It’s Friday, and I was not going to post, but this is bothering me. I hope it will bother you as well. Sunday, we are going to worship the Lord, for His work, for His glory. It will be, or should be, all about Him. You know it and so do I. So, having said […]

Isaiah 35: Glorious Gospel, Millennial Problem

Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; [6] then shall the lame man leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute sing for joy. For waters break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert – Isaiah 35:5,6 (ESV) And the ransomed of […]

The Ransomed of the Lord

“And a Redeemer will come to Zion, to those in Jacob who turn from transgression,” declares the LORD. “And as for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the LORD: “My Spirit that is upon you, and my words that I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth, or […]

The Dismissal of Earthly Jerusalem as Spiritually Significant

Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. [22] You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. [23]  But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the […]

Jewish Fables – No Second Chance for Israel

…not devoting themselves to Jewish myths and the commands of people who turn away from the truth. – Titus 1:14 (ESV) The following is an excerpt from a wonderful work by Phillip Mauro entitled “The Hope of Israel”. Link to the entire work is available online in both HTML and PDF and can be found […]
