Q&A: What Do You Really Think About the Gospel Coalition?

Ans: I think anytime you align yourself to the Gospel Coalition, you align yourself with, and support, ecumenicists, and that my friends, is to stand against God and His Word. We clear now?

Q&A: Did Jesus Christ Commit Suicide?

This question comes in response to a post which was in itself a response to John Piper and his teaching on Christians and guns in their home, which he opposes. Q: Was Christ committing suicide when He did not resist his murderers? A: Absolutely not, and for at least two reasons. 

Q&A: Thy Will Be Done

This particular question submitted by a reader was in response to two posts: First, the post dealing with John MacArthur’s claim of the existence of “an interim kingdom” and brazen denial that Jesus Christ currently exercises His full, Divine will over the earth. See Daniel 4:35 for God’s refutation of such thinking. Secondly, the post […]

Q&A: Why Aren’t You As Popular As Challies?

Q&A: “How Come You Don’t Publish My Comments?”

Answer: Because if you had taken the time to read the comment policy, you would realize (hopefully) that you were violating them.

Q&A: Hebrews 10:14

I received this question in the combox and I think it’s a fine example where some (not necessarily the commenter) can become confused when reading a passage where it clearly uses sanctification in the past tense. I’ll quote the comment in its entirety and hopefully, you will find this discussion useful. Here’s the Q: Okay, […]

Q&A: Those Wonderful Buildings

As He was going out of the temple, one of His disciples *said to Him, “Teacher, behold what wonderful stones and what wonderful buildings!” And Jesus said to him, “Do you see these great buildings?Not one stone will be left upon another which will not be torn down.” – Mark 13:1, 2 This is the […]

Shai Linne & God – “the hottest Poppa”

When you think of God Almighty, the Lord God of Scripture, do you think or refer to Him as “the hottest Poppa”? When you know in your heart that He is the Creator of all things and holds your very next breath in His omnipotent hand, do you so casually refer to him in such […]
