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

Recognizing False Teachers

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” – Matthew 7:15 False teachers are cleverly disguised, and in our day, there are many. They are disguised so that the sheep, perhaps lacking in knowledge, will not notice their true nature, until they are already established among […]

Tony Miano: Improve Results of Evangelistic Services By Getting Arrested

If other pastors ask a serious question about how to replicate actions that will increase results from an evangelistic service [as if their actions, itinerary or method will make a difference, as if it is in their power to make it so], is the answer to give them – even “in jest” – that getting […]

A Call for Division in the Visible Church

A few suggestions are in order as to how we may, with both our feet on solid ground, strive toward the ideal of visible unity for the church of Christ. The first need of the church of this day is not union, but division; however, division unto union. First, we must have the courage to […]

When A Christian Lacks Respect for God’s Word

17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: 18 “Behold, My [a]Servant whom I [b]have chosen; My Beloved in whom My soul [c]is well-pleased; I will put My Spirit upon Him, And He shall proclaim [d]justice to the [e]Gentiles. 19 “He will not quarrel, nor cry out; Nor will anyone hear […]

The Right to Be One’s Own God

[ Read more on Antinomianism ] The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil. – Genesis 3:5 This is precisely the power claimed and offered by […]

Why Heretics Win

[ Read more on Faith and Heresy ] “There are several reasons that heretics win battles. First, Scripture tells us that they are more clever and cunning than believers: “For the sons of this world are more shrewd in their generation than the sons of light” (Luke 16:8). They have a way of thinking that […]

Q&A: Should Women Teach Men About Theology?

Short answer: Absolutely not, in any way, shape or form. Scripture, specifically I Timothy 2:11-14, could not be more clear: A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. For it was Adam who was first […]

You Can Take the Israelite Out of Egypt, but…

Exodus 32. Wow. It almost makes my head swim to see the scene played out on the pages of Scripture, particularly verses one through six. Now when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, the people assembled about Aaron and said to him, “Come, make us [a]a god who will […]

Secondary Separation–When to Stand Apart

Dr. Peter Masters: Separation, secondary separation, the view of Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones, contemporary worship, worldliness and cultural accommodation are the topics of this article. Also, how the medium may ruin the message. It is clearly a vital duty of Christians to stand apart from false teachers who deny the fundamentals of the faith. ‘Do not […]

Holy Hip-Hop and the Presentation of the Gospel

From Brian McClung: Is this [holy hip-hop/Christian rap] a God honoring, Scriptural way to present the Gospel? No, it most certainly isn’t and can never be! How can it ever be right to employ the music of the world, styles of music that stem from a rebellious, immoral culture, to present the Gospel? You cannot […]

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

Steve Lawson: Like It or Not, You Live in a Theocracy

The world is not run by a democracy, the majority rule of men, but by a theocracy, the sovereign rule of God. — Steven Lawson (@DrStevenJLawson) December 10, 2013 And the true Church said, “Amen!”

Reformed Hip-Hop and the Militancy of the Church

The glory of the Church while on this earth is due to its militancy against doctrinal error and worldliness, and the true visible Church is glorious in this aspect, make no mistake. It is the false churches, made of professing Christians who court the world like a lover who encourage the true Church to follow […]

Ten Reasons to Be An Historic Baptist

We’re the only ones who can trace our doctrine back through Scripture to the Apostles – and no, we are not ‘landmark’ Baptists. We were never part of the Protestant Reformation, because we were never a part of the Roman Catholic cult. Everyone else…was. We make the best green-bean casseroles. We don’t have the problem […]

You Might Be An Antichrist If….

Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but […]

The Church: Both Organism and Organization

No one will doubt that the Church is a living organism, Romans 12:5, I Corinthians 12:13. Indeed, the Church is the living body of Jesus Christ. However, it is often denied that the Church may properly be defined as an organization as well, that is, both a living organism and an organization. Scripture does declare […]

Is Separation Really Necessary Today?

This modem age is one of ecumenical activity and spiritual compromise. The old truths of the Word of God have been jettisoned in order to maintain a false and unscriptural unity in professing Christendom. Many who profess to belong to Christ are caught up in this wicked movement. Most are involved because they are ignorant […]
