A Super Overabundant, So Great Salvation: Romans 5:1-11

Share

In my studies of Romans, I have often enjoyed Paul’s enthusiasm for his topic. This is evident in that Paul ends his sections with climaxes. For instance, after Paul’s personal introduction in Romans 1 he triumphs by saying, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one […]

The False Logic of Inclusivism

Share

            Inclusivism claims that while the provision of Jesus Christ is the only means of salvation, explicit faith or knowledge in him is unnecessary for salvation. In other words those who have never heard the gospel are not exempt from God’s mercy, providing they respond to natural revelation. The position finds its attractiveness from the logic it uses: the wideness […]

The Character of Scripture (2) – Scripture’s Titles and Features

Share

Scripture’s Titles for Itself             Studies have often, and rightly, been done on the names and titles of the Lord Jesus, because those names and titles are intentionally meant to describe a certain aspect of His nature. So with Scripture, there are a number of different titles, even besides the common designations “Scripture” and “Word.”             Titles Communicating Its Authority. […]

Foundations of Good Theology

Share

            Every good theological position – every well-formulated doctrine – begins on a solid foundation. Imagine a scientist proposing a new theory without any knowledge of scientific formulas. Imagine a single trying to give marriage counseling. Imagine a grammarian writing a dictionary without training in linguistics. What is wrong with these pictures? In each of them, there is an inadequate […]

Our Only Hope: A Sufficient Scripture and Supreme Saviour

Share

We are faced with two options for a wake up call from God: revival or persecution. Both cause God’s people to take their Christianity more seriously. Though they take different forms, the resolve necessary is basically the same when facing either: to hold Scripture as sufficient and Christ as supreme. It is a high view of God and a radical […]

The Seed Plot of the Assembly, Part 2 – Matthew 18:18-20

Share

The Assembly and Its Connection With Heaven – 18-19 Having the excommunication of the brother who rebelled against assembly authority in our minds, we come to verse 18 which says “Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Some say […]

FIVE VERSES – Unlimited Atonement (2)

Share

The subject of limited atonement is tremendously vital to refute, for it is in fact a heresy that has arisen to be “common Christian doctrine” to many, when it is actually far from Scripture. And to prove its lack of basis, we have looked at five verses that clearly show why it cannot be considered as true. But we are […]

FIVE VERSES: Unlimited Atonement – Part 1

Share

Limited Atonement is the third premise for Calvinism’s TULIP acronym, and it is the belief that Christ’s blood was only shed for the elect and that there is no provision made for the reprobate to be saved, since he has been elected to Hell, which in the Calvinist’s mind begs the question “Why would Christ ‘waste’ His blood on those […]

The Importance of the Finished Work

Share

As the Lord expired on Calvary, after appointing Mary a “son” to care for her, after receiving the bitter wine, the Lord cried triumphantly “FINISHED!” and bowed His thorn-crowned head and dismissed His spirit. No doubt this cry was mightier that any other, and to us it should mean more than most others because of its implications. That cry was […]
