Daniel Akin & Al Mohler’s Denial of Original Sin

Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned— Romans 5:12 Daniel Akin, president of Southeastern Baptist Seminary, along with Al Mohler have written a position on infant death. I think it’s important here to recognize that their arguments are […]

The Necessity of Good Works

There can be no doubt about the necessity of good works properly understood. They cannot be regarded as necessary to merit salvation, nor as a means to retain a hold on salvation, nor even as the only way along which to proceed to eternal glory, for children enter salvation without having done any good works. […]

Billy Graham’s Last–and Dangerous, Damnable–Message to America

Mixed with truth, the devil’s lie is always inviting. This video has great cinematography, excellent production, and a message that leaves everyone feeling good. But it’s not true. It’s not Truth. To tell the world that God loves you is speculation at best. You’re not God, and have no right to tell anyone that God […]

John MacArthur: Take the Mark of the Beast, Still Be Saved

Listen very carefully to John MacArthur’s teaching here. Lord willing, I’ll share my thoughts with you on this soon.

Just A Few Will Be Saved

Most people believe it is an easy thing to get to heaven. Look at how most people live their lives. Watch how they react to God’s man, the preacher, who is truly proclaiming God’s Word. Look how many say ‘Amen!’ to Sola Scriptura, yet deny it with their lives as a rule of life. Contrary […]

God Refutes the Doctrine of ‘Free Will’

Yesterday I posted this article relating Memorial Day to ‘the feasts’ which Israel was to observe every seventh year and made some practical applications. In a parallel passage, specifically Exodus 34:23-24, there is an interesting addition to what God says He will do for all the males of Israel who are being required to come […]

Check Mate to Dan Phillips, Frank Turk, Phil Johnson & John MacArthur

It’s been almost a year since I asked this question to these Christian “leaders” and the response has been nada. Zilch. Nothing. In fact, these sages of wisdom have blocked me on twitter and facebook. That’s ok, I don’t mind that. The fact is, I have asked an honest, valid, question to a teaching that […]

An Open Challenge to Dan Phillips

Update: 10/23/2012 I’m still hoping that Dan will offer an edifying response. Update: 6/14/2012 My attempt to open up a dialogue with Dan Phillips of ‘Teampyro’ on a salvific issue has been unsuccessful. Dan thinks my sincere question a ‘waste of time’. He’s wrong. It should be discussed. – JT  Dan, you are dispensationalist. I […]

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 […]

A Conversation About Being Saved

A woman with whom I was slightly acquainted approached me recently while I was working in the yard and said, “Can I ask you something?” “Sure,” I replied. She asked, “Do you think I’m a Christian?” { That doesn’t happen every day! } I said “I don’t know.” “Well, I pray all the time,” she […]

John MacArthur is Robbing the Church

[ For the sake of the Church, I’d like to ask you to share this post far and wide. Thanks – JT ] For I tell you that Christ became a servant to the circumcised to show God’s truthfulness, in order to confirm the promises given to the patriarchs, and in order that the Gentiles […]

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 […]

Why Replacement Theology is Silly

To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ, and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things; so that the manifold wisdom of God might now […]

Against the World–Calvinism is Satanic

An Open Challenge to Dan Phillips

Update: 6/14/2012 My attempt to open up a dialogue with Dan Phillips of ‘Teampyro’ on a salvific issue has been unsuccessful. Dan thinks my sincere question a ‘waste of time’. He’s wrong. It should be discussed. – JT  Dan, you are dispensationalist. I think we both would agree to that. You are a member of […]

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 […]

Citizens of Zion

In Isaiah 62, God pronounces His delight in Zion. She is given a new name, Hephzibah (My delight is in her) and her land is now called Beulah (married). The Lord promises Zion her coming salvation and deliverance: Behold, the Lord has proclaimed to the end of the earth, Say to the daughter of Zion, […]

A Damnable Error & A Simple Question

No Compromise Radio has released it’s first trailer of No Compromise: Ever, episode 1 [below]. It features Mike Abendroth, Phil Johnson, Carl Truman and James White. Looks like good, profitable stuff, and I’m looking forward to seeing the full episode. Kudo’s to all involved. In this trailer, Phil, quite rightly, calls the error of T.D. […]

After You’re Saved

“After God has saved you by grace alone, then your first duty is to dedicate yourself to his service, to give your heart to him, to be used by him as he wills and where he wills and when he wills, and to realize that you are no longer your own but the purchased property […]

The Doctrine of Broad-mindedness

David Leach: I suppose there can be no denying that there are occasions in which a Christian must behave or speak or otherwise labor in a way that might sometimes be called "broad-minded." In other words it cannot be smugly said that all "broad-mindedness" is universally to be avoided in every conceivable situation. And if […]
