Invalidating the Doctrine of A 1000 Year Reign of Christ

And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.  – Revelation 20:4 (Literal translation) The validity of the doctrine of a 1000 year reign of Jesus Christ on this earth is easily dismissible as completely illogical and invalid. The passage quoted above is a literal translation. Note it carefully. For those readers who have […]

Two Resurrections, Thousand years Between ‘Em and A Dispensationalist In A Pear Tree

This is a follow up post regarding the millennial teaching of a double physical resurrection which I dealt with recently. Why a follow up? Because I’ve been asked to explain something in this comment received. Pay attention to what this guy asks: I accept that the Thessalonians passage describes only one resurrection – that of […]

Q&A: Will the Sins of Christians Be Revealed At the Final Judgment?

Speculation. We’ll have none of that here. Let’s stick to “What saith the Scriptures?” First, Revelations  20:12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which […]

How Many Resurrections Will There Be?

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. – I Thessalonians 4:16 The passage quoted above is often used by millennialists as a proof text confirming the teaching of a double resurrection, […]

Russell Moore Summoned to Vatican, Happily Wags Tail

Later this month, Russell Moore – President of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethic and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) – will be attending a conference at the Vatican meant to bolster a defense of “traditional marriage.” As wonderful as it is that most Southern Baptists and the Bishop of Rome (and self-pronounced “Vicar of Christ on […]

The Myth of the ‘Mission Trip’

“Youth groups and their leaders love ‘mission trips’ but it’s time for a bit of honesty among the practitioners of such enterprises.  First, they exhibit a kind of colonialism and an attitude of superiority.  That is, the mission trippers leave their affluent homes (mission trips are expensive) and they travel to some impoverished area and […]

How Pastors Might Avoid Lawsuits for Refusing to Marry Gays

You’re a pastor, and a gay couple comes to you and ask you to marry them. You know it’s out of the question, sinful and in your heart you refuse to do it. Then again, you’ve read the news and it’s everywhere. Gays are suing churches left and right for refusing to marry them. In […]

Ken Silva: Death of A Friend

Friends die, it’s a fact of life. It happens all the time, every day. Ken Silva of Apprising Ministries, has passed away after a long illness. No, I have no particulars regarding his illness, nor the plans for the funeral, but, the news of his death is making the rounds, and for that, I am […]

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 […]

Matt Walsh, James White and other Absurdities

Yes, I’ve been busy gardening and putting food on the table. No apologies. Two articles are coming up soon. Stay tuned people.

Poll: What Is the Greatest Doctrinal Error or Threat to the Church?

Paul Washer Church Plant Still Pushing Mysticism

As most readers of this blog know, my family once attended Paul Washer’s church plant in Radford Virginia. We eventually left (and not soon enough) due to doctrinal differences which I felt – and knew – were not what most would call ‘secondary’. As a minister, I do not see how anything in God’s Word […]

Towards Economic Liberty

If we want economic liberty – want to be free to work most productively and to have what we produce – our concern must focus on the tax roots to shut off the revenue which nourishes the disease. To work at the other end and merely bemoan the detailed projects of socialism or damn the […]

The Soul of the Sluggard

The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the soul of the diligent is made fat.-Proverbs 13:4 John Gill: He desires knowledge, but does not care to be at any pains to get it, and so has it not; he desires riches, but chooses not to make use of the means, to be […]

The Only ‘Israel of God’

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light – I Peter 2:9 When God the Holy Spirit spoke through the Apostle Peter, calling Christians “a […]

My Apologies

Hi there. It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? My apologies, if you think I need to make one, for not posting anything recently, or at least anything of substance. Fact is, I’ve been gardening like a madman intent on growing more food this year on our property than ever before – ever. It’s hard work, people. […]

Thanking Edward Snowden and the Biggest Excuse Ever to Revolt Against the American Government

Edward Snowden. You know the name. He’s the guy who exposed the NSA for spying on Americans and has said he doesn’t think things will change but will only get worse. He’s right, and we can thank ourselves for that. Now everyone knows the abuses of the United States government under Barack Obama. Now everyone […]

A Memorial Day Reminder

America is neither a Saviour or the last hope of mankind – titles and glory which belong to Jesus Christ alone. The sword of America is not the sword of Jesus; loyalty to the American flag is not an equal or greater virtue than fidelity to the Christian Church; soldiers of Christ and soldiers of […]

Gospel Coalition (TGC) Shows Tullian Tchividjian the Door

Here is the Janet Mefferd interview of Tullian Tchividjian after he spoke out against Sovereign Grace Ministries and C.J. Mahaney’s knowledge of the SGM sex scandal – and subsequently was given the “left foot” of fellowship by TGC who has protected CJ from the beginning. “Give me a break.  These people [Mahaney & Layman], they’re […]

Called to Go Unnoticed

whatever you do, do all to the glory of God —1 Corinthians 10:31 In the Scriptures, the great miracle of the incarnation slips into the ordinary life of a child; the great miracle of the transfiguration fades into the demon-possessed valley below; the glory of the resurrection descends into a breakfast on the seashore. This […]
