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 […]

Israel and the Church

Not replacement. Gentile inclusion.

1689 Federalism vs Dispensationalism

“Understand the differences between the particular Baptist covenant theology of the 2nd London Baptist Confession of Faith and Dispensationalism.”

Christian, It’s Time to Fight

The Church is glorious precisely because it is militant regarding doctrine. Lose that, and you’re left with Romper Room for adults. Of course, these days, even if you don’t have a clue what Romper Room is, trust me, it’s popular. HT

Marcionism, Dispensationalism and New Calvinism

Dispensationalism is the vehicle through which Marcionism has returned under the cloak of orthodoxy, with its antinomian battle cry ‘we’re not under Law but under Grace!’ No Reformer or Puritan would have tolerated lawlessness as fruit suitable to repentance; and yet, that is exactly what Dispensationalism has produced. And in an ironic twist, the theologically […]

R.C. Sproul: Dispensationalism Brought Us the ‘Carnal Christian’, the ‘Sinners Prayer’ and more Antinomianism

When you get the opportunity, I encourage you to listen and watch the video below featuring RC Sproul (and Jr.), Steve Lawson, Robert Godfrey and Sinclair Ferguson. While there is a discussion on various theological subjects, the heresies of dispensationalism is prominent, taking up the first 20 minutes of an 57 minute presentation. Here is […]

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.

How Dispensationalism Proclaims a False Gospel (#1)

This is not complicated. One of the main tenets of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is this: Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures. God, through the apostle Paul, made a very clear statement to all mankind. Read it: For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that […]

Dispensationalism is Not New (Anybody Else? #1)

This is the first of a new series (seriously). Do you really need  an introduction to it? I didn’t think so. – JT Claim: Dispensationalism is not new, it’s been around forever. Response: Throughout the history of Christian thinking since the Apostles, redemption by faith alone has never had as its foundation that God was […]

A Day of Rank Compromise

There was a time when men died, were burned at the stake for God’s truth. Nowadays, men compromise the truth to glorify themselves. If you are “Gospel strong” and refuse to address heresy like dispensationalism and those who teach it, then you are not “Gospel strong” at all.

Coming Up: How Dispensationalism Proclaims A False Gospel

I recently asked my astute readers a simple question: Would anyone be interested in a list of ways that dispensationalism proclaims a false gospel? Yea? Nay? The response by comment and email was an overwhelming “Yes!” Ok, then. A series is underway. And you’re welcome. Clarification on the subject is much needed. I’ve begun writing […]

John MacArthur: The Mantra of Bad Theology (Video)

The message from John MacArthur in this video is fascinating, especially coming from a dispensationalist. I don’t know whether to call it hypocrisy, or blindness – but it is interesting, to say the least. Watch for my next post on this. In the meantime, comments are open.

Christians Supporting A False Gospel

There is nothing holy about the dirt in the Middle east. More so, there is nothing holy about a people anywhere who are at enmity with Jesus Christ. Yet, reportedly 60% of evangelicals have believed and are proclaiming from pulpits and podiums across this globe that both a land and a people in the Middle […]

Believing the Bible is God’s Word Is Not Enough

Today I asked Jerry Johnson, known for his informative Christian YouTube video series about standing against the world a serious question: Q: Why do you think there is not a greater outcry against dispensationalism, and it’s most well-known spokesman, John MacArthur? His answer was this: Ans: Because as popular teachers go he at least stands […]

Satan: Neither Prince nor Ruler of This World

The consummation of the kingdom of God is eschatological. However, the present reality of the kingdom is certainly not, nor is that of the present reign of Jesus Christ as King of kings. It is a great comfort to the Church that at the right hand of God is seated He Who reigns supremely over […]

Ergun Caner Is Important, Jesus Christ Isn’t?

James White tweeted this today: The video taken down by an @erguncaner copyright claim has been restored: http://t.co/tU8U61RqAw Watch it and see why it is "fair use." — James White (@DrOakley1689) July 3, 2013 Here’s a question. Why is so much attention given to the fact that Ergun Caner is a liar (which, obviously, he […]

The Only Way to Peace and Unity

Unfortunately, the Church has not always taken the pains nor effort to distinguish between the true and the false church. We live in an age of evangelical pacifism, of comfort and lethargy, and a time when this very need to act accordingly, and distinguish between the two, is of the utmost importance. In this day […]

George Muller, J. Hudson Taylor & China’s Forced Abortion Policy

What does forced abortion in China, George Müller and J. Hudson Taylor have in common? Seem like a far-fetched question? Think again. Müller, of course, is best known for his work with orphans. He also founded the Scriptural Knowledge Institution (SKI). Müller’s Institution was a main-stay of Hudson Taylor’s China Inland Mission in its early […]

Trending with God

To say I am greatly disappointed would be a tremendous understatement. But I’m unsure how to word it at the moment. Let me tell you that I am absolutely amazed at the eagerness to which professing Christians jump on the latest trending topics on social media. If it’s trending, look out. Blog posts, tweets and […]
