What Is ‘Joy in the Holy Spirit’?

and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. – Romans 5:5 The Spirit of God does not work ‘in vacuo’. He glorifies Christ. He works through the propitiation, interpreting, revealing and applying it. If we think of […]

A Life Well-pleasing to God

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. – Romans 12:2 In God’s sight the life that is good and well-pleasing to Him is a life striving […]

Sin Is A Punishment

Sin is not a natural force or a condition in which man participates against his will. The result of sin in not a fate to which man falls victim as a prey, nor is it a natural process of destruction, but to the contrary, sin is a punishment that God decrees upon man.

10 Reasons Why Roman Catholicism and Christianity Will Forever Be Irreconcilable

The issue which is often brought out amongst Protestants and Catholics is whether Roman Catholics are Christians and does Catholic theology agree with the Bible? It is the sincere belief of this writer that Catholic doctrine cannot be considered biblically accurate and is therefore incompatible with the written word of God. In this study we […]

He Maketh No Mistake

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. – Romans 8:28 HE MAKETH NO MISTAKE My Father’s way may twist and turn My heart may throb and ache, But in my soul I’m glad to know, He maketh no […]

Yes! Take That Confederate Flag Down!

Thank goodness that Confederate Flag is finally being removed. It’s comforting to know that racism will finally be ended by pulling down this flag. Blacks will now be free to live the American dream; free to feel proud to claim, protect, and take responsibility for the babies they create, free to keep their families together, […]

The Stupidity of Being Politically Correct

“The absolute absurdity of the PC police is becoming more and more evident with each passing day. An increasing number of comedians are making fun of PC’s implications which, in a broader cultural sense, signals the fact that average Americans outside of the PC tribunal of academia, the media and government have little regard for […]

Sin, the Practical Blasphemy

“Sin is the Practical-blasphemy of all the name of God. It is the Dare of His Justice, the Rape of Hi Mercy, the Jeer of His patience, the Slight of His Power, the Contempt of His Love: It is every way contrary to God.” – Samuel Bolton, Sin, p. 25.

A Challenge to U.S. Military Supporters

Challenge: Name one, single freedom that the US Military is defending on behalf of the American people. You can’t say “all of them” – that’s not a specific freedom. Just name one, then tell me how they are doing it. Good luck with that. If you can not name one, at least one, specific freedom […]

How Americans Should Deal with the Amerikan Empire

There is a Southern fire that lives in all of us. So, when the Empire or one of its privileged groups demand that we remove the Confederate battle flag or a monument to our fallen heroes, there is a simple solution. Take the advice of one of the few honorable men who have ruled over […]

The Modern Carpetbaggers: Where Is the Real Danger?

I’m writing this to Southern folks who still have a love of their family and heritage; while others are happily being snookered in the enemy camp. “Honor your father and your mother” the Lord God said. Some of you still have a sense of family and want to obey God. Remember it is always better […]

America, and Western Civilization Is Dying

The reason for, and the explanation of, the fall of the American empire, and, for western civilization, is very simple. Unregenerate men love darkness more than light. In other words, they hate God. It’s that simple. God says: “And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness […]

Changing Your Lifestyle for the Better

You wanted to know how it is that a person can change his lifestyle? The answer is simple: Anyone can change if he is determined to do so. Some change for health reasons (they may stop smoking). Others change in order to please a certain girl—or fellow—as the case may be (they change their language […]

The New (Old) Name of Modern Evangelicalism: ‘Candyism’

Many descriptions have been used to highlight various aspects of the weakness, shallowness, doctrinalphobia and man-centeredness of too much of 20th and 21st century “evangelicalism”. But a single term has eluded us—one which would incorporate the entire grievous condition and capture the real essence of the problem. It is the conviction of this writer that […]

The End?

From the moment of my writing until midnight tonight, I have to make a decision whether to continue the domain of 5ptsalt.com. It’s not easy. On the one hand, I started it for all the wrong reasons. On the other, there is evidence that some have benefited by it. Then again, there are many who […]
