A Lesson from Jonah

And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown. Jonah 3:4 Jonah preaches no more and no less than what God told him say. I would guess that he is pretty "put out" with the Lord anyway about having to […]

When Is It Too Late?

When is it too late to repent and be saved? By all means, discuss. I venture to say that few will answer this question.

Rebuke and Correct Me–If I’m Wrong

I have taken a stand here at 5ptsalt. It has costs me, and I have no regrets. None whatsoever. I believe Scripture teaches that when Christ returns again, it is too late for repentance, too late for salvation, too late to cling by faith to the finished work of Christ alone. I believe and know […]

The Cult of Dispensationalism

"What is indisputably, absolutely, and uncompromisingly essential to the Christian religion is its doctrine of salvation… If Dispensationalism has actually departed from the only way of salvation which the Christian religion teaches, then we must say it has departed from Christianity. No matter how many other important truths it proclaims, it cannot be called Christian […]

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 […]

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 Question On Repentance

Brethren, this is not ‘an end-times’ issue, it’s a right-now issue. To convey in any form to any people that God does not command repentance and faith today – before physical death or the return of our Lord – is what I consider the rankest of heresies. It is salvific, a primary issue. I’d like […]

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 […]

Dead Works That Include the Gospel

No, my friend. You must be born again, and you can’t do that. With you, it is impossible, but with God, all things are possible. You can preach the Gospel to yourself everyday until the cows come home, until you are blue in the face, etc., but unless you are born again, it will be […]

What Will the Church Do With Such A Man?

Suppose, for a moment, that there is a preacher who is teaching that after Christ Jesus comes again, you will have time for repentance and you can be saved from the eternal, and just, wrath of God for rejecting the Gospel offered through His Son, Jesus Christ. What would you think of such a man? […]

Barna: What Self-Described Christians Must Overcome

A study by the Barna Group indicates there are four major barriers that self-described Christians must overcome before they ‘are likely to persevere and maximize their connection with God.’ Among those findings: Obstacle 1: Commitment Less than 18% (1 of every 5) claimed to be totally self-invested in their own spiritual development. Obstacle 2: Repentance […]

Slaying Sin

Let no man think to kill sin with few, easy, or gentle strokes. He who hath once smitten a serpent, if he follow not on his blow until it be slain, may repent that ever he began the quarrel. And so he who undertakes to deal with sin, and pursues it not constantly to the […]

So, You Want to See Revival?

Ok. Amos 9:13. “Behold, the days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when the plowman shall overtake the reaper and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed; the mountains shall drip sweet wine, and all the hills shall flow with it. Now, we have a garden in our home, and I can tell you, […]

Christian, God Sees Our Sins

This is a lie of popular opinion: “God doesn’t see my sin, He just sees Christ.” Here are some biblical proofs why that opinion is a lie. Galatians 6:7-8: Do not be deceived, God is not mocked. For whatever a man may sow, that he also will reap. For the one sowing to his flesh […]

A Genuine Love of Truth

For one thing, if you have a genuine love of truth, you’re never really satisfied with anything else. Counterfeit religious experiences and exciting escapes don’t satisfy you. You’re always hungry for real experiences, for a genuine relationship with God, for true repentance and change, even if you don’t know how to get there. You want […]

Who Said That!?

What is wrong with these statements regarding the Second Advent of our Lord and Christ Jesus brethren? Speak, and testify. When is it too late to repent? Will some have a second-chance at salvation from the wrath of God? When is it too late for the day of salvation brethren? Surely you know, and the […]

Characteristics of An Empire

The Empire Comes Back! Founded as a Constitutional Republic in 1776, has the once great United States of America devolved and reduced herself to being merely another malevolent empire? Here we shall examine this question as we review the facts concerning the present state of this “Union”. “If your God is not your King, then […]

A God-pleasing Life

“Beloved friend, if you desire to live a holy and God-pleasing life, and to inherit a home in heaven after this life, then you must bring all of your life, all your thoughts, words, and actions into subjection to the teachings of the Bible, as God has commanded. Deut. 5:32, 33. This is your only […]

A Puritan’s Prayer: The Great God

O Fountain of All Good, Destroy in me every lofty thought, Break pride to pieces and scatter it to the winds. Annihilate each clinging shred of     self-righteousness, Implant in us true lowliness of spirit, Abase me to self-loathing and self-abhorrence, Open in me a fount of penitential tears, Break me, then bind me up; […]
