The Need to Preach the Atonement By the Death of Christ

The sense of debt to Christ is the most profound and pervasive of all emotions in the New Testament, and only a gospel which evokes this, as the gospel of Atonement does, is true to the primitive and normal Christian type. Not only must Atonement by the death of Christ be preached if we would […]

Assurance: When and How Are We Sealed By the Spirit?

When and how the believer is sealed with the Spirit is the question. Many of the Puritans and certain of their contemporary disciples, agreeing that sealing is the assuring of the sealed of their salvation, contend that the sealing is a work of the Spirit that follows faith in Christ in time, often after many […]

Biblical Doctrine: When Are We Sealed By the Holy Spirit?

We learn the truth about assurance especially from three passages, or kinds of passages, of Scripture. The first is those texts that teach the sealing work of the Spirit. Several texts teach that the Spirit seals the believer, including II Corinthians 1:21, 22; Ephesians 1:13, 14; and Ephesians 4:30. Ephesians 1:13, 14 is the most […]

Assurance: An Indispensible Work of the Spirit – Not of Christians

Assurance is not our own work, our own achievement by our own hard efforts. Neither is assurance bestowed in recognition of the superior spirituality by which a few children distinguish themselves from the rest of the congregation.   It is an important aspect of the gospel that God not only wills to save all His […]

It Is Not Sinful To Vote For Donald Trump

I have grown weary, and very disappointed while watching professing Christians twist and pervert Scripture in order to make a case for their political candidate in this upcoming Presidential election. The display of ignorance of Scripture is absolutely astounding. Listen folks, it is NOT a sin to vote for Donald Trump. Let’s get off our […]

Call the Orlando Shooter What He Was: Wicked.

When we look at the lives of others, the last thing we think of is the responsibility attached to the person for being what he or she is. It is also likely to be the last thing we think of when examining ourselves. Heredity and environment, we are told by the world and its media, […]

SBC Pressured to Ban Confederate Flag. Anti-Southerner Russell Moore Supports

Russell Moore, heading the public policy arm of the SBC, is making waves and leading the charge, for all practical purposes, in having the SBC officially ban the display of the Confederate battle flag from public view. May he and his liberal, politically correct, historically ignorant ilk be defeated, without prejudice – and to the […]

POLL: Was Man Created with An Empty Soul In Need of Being Filled?

I was told this week that “man was created with an empty soul that needs to be filled with something.” Hmm. I don’t think so. Nothing God-breathed at creation needs anything. After the fall of man? That’s a different question. Regardless of your answer, I’d be interested in hearing your comments on why or why […]

Ted Cruz Follows “Voices” from God Heard Through Wife

  By way of Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael, we get a view into the theology of the Cruz family. And it’s not exactly comforting. It certainly is not Scriptural. This is what happens when people are not taught the biblical truth that God speaks only through His written Word. My son Ted spent 6 months […]

5PtSalt Lives

Ok, so most of you have realized I’ve been “offline” for awhile. Good. At least you’re paying attention. After much contemplation, we’re back online. It was close people. I almost didn’t renew it. I won’t go into all the details of the why’s and whatnots and bottom lines. Fact is, it’s been a lot of […]

Forget About Donald Trump’s ‘Moral Center’

Those of you who are slamming Donald Trump for lacking “a moral center” need to be reminded that Christianity is not primarily about morality. It’s about substitution. If you want to slam the Donald, fine, just don’t make morality your “Christian” argument. Otherwise, it becomes quite clear that you do not understand the Christian faith […]

The Myth of the ‘Radical’ Muslim

The mainstream media in America, and the United States government (if it can be called that at all) has hoodwinked, lied to and gone out of their way to deceive American citizens as to their true wicked intentions – the destruction of Christianity (which will never happen). Every religion on earth, in every age since […]

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 […]
