Christ’s Death Guarantees Justification & Glorification for the Elect

November 19, 2012

44

Christian religion that denies the Lord Jesus Christ died for a particular people, His elect chosen before the foundation of the world for God’s glory alone, leads to many wayward doctrines. The unbiblical teaching that Christ shed His blood and died for every person in the same way bears unbiblical theological fruit such as conditional election, […]

Rioting in America if Mitt Romney Wins Election

November 5, 2012

Dear Mr. Rioter, You don’t know me, but I’ve come to learn about you over the last few weeks. I’ve been following you on recent news reports where you have threatened to start a riot if Mitt Romney wins the 2012 U.S. Presidential election. I’ve noticed how infatuated you are with our current president, Barack […]

The Evangelist’s Commitment to the Local Church

Comments Off on The Evangelist’s Commitment to the Local Church

In the last article, The Fellowship in Evangelism, I took a close look at Paul’s letter to the Philippians and showed how the evangelist is not only to preach the Gospel, but he is to love and serve the Body of Christ. I might have made it part one of this article, because it really […]

The Fellowship in Evangelism

In opening his letter to the Philippian church, Paul wrote, I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in evangelism from the first day until now… Wait a minute, that must have been a typo. I believe the text reads […]

Perverted Love, Sex, and Abortion

Flee from sexual immorality… – 1 Corinthians 6:18a On the drive in to work today, I caught a significant portion of a sermon by John MacArthur titled Fundamental Christian Attitudes: Love.  What I’d like to share with you is an excerpt where he discusses the world’s perverted definition of love and the consequences of practicing […]

Rewind, Refocus, Reload

Resting in the reality that I am God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared for me before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 2:10), has given me much relief recently. Not only that, but my sanctification, though I work out in fear in trembling before the Lord, is ultimately a […]

The Resolved Lamb of God

July 10, 2012

Closing out the final Resolved Conference a couple of weeks ago, CJ Mahaney delivered one of the most enthralling messages I have ever heard. No other message should captivate our souls and move us to love, worship, and obey the Lord Jesus Christ than the reality of the cross. Yet, not just the cross on […]

Will You Go to Hell?

Most people who would answer the question in the title of this post will answer no. The unfortunate reality is that most who would answer the question with a no are going to a place they thought for certain they would never taste, see, hear, or feel. Either they thought they were good enough to avoid […]

Characteristics of the Model Church

June 29, 2012

1

What is the model church? Where should you worship? What are the characteristics of a faithful church? Is your church God-centered, Christ-exalting, and Gospel-driven? How do you know if it is? What do you do if it’s not? The following message from Steven Lawson at the final Resolved Conference last weekend is something every Christian […]

Bastard vs. Legitimate Children

June 20, 2012

5

In closing his message titled The Christian’s Assurance of Salvation, Paul Washer contrasts the difference between a child of God, who receives the loving discipline of the Father, and the illigitimate (bastard) child who receives no discipline at all but continues in his waywardness. We see this truth addressed in Hebrews 12:3-11, paying close attention to […]
