Comments Off on The Philippian Jailer’s Belief

Free-gracers readily point to the salvation of the Philippian jailer (Acts 16:25-40) as a proof text for their easy-believism doctrine. But notice what Acts 16:31-32 says after the jailer trembled and asked how he could be saved: They said, ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.’ 32 And […]

February 29, 2012


In the following video, Pastor Jorge Mendoza warns, Many people hear this and don’t respond. Maybe you’ve heard it all your life and haven’t responded. And you think you’re being neutral….”I’m not saying no” but by not saying “yes”, by not turning, you’re saying “no!” You’re actively deciding against Him. In fact, you’re worse than […]

Are You Sure You Are Saved?

February 23, 2012


In an appropriate follow-up from yesterday’s post, Testimony of Regeneration, Wretched provides the below excerpt from Paul Washer regarding the view that being morally upright saves a person.

Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. – Matthew 7:13-14 I’ll Be Honest features […]

The most terrifying truth of Scripture is that God is good. – Paul Washer My good friend and dear brother Marcus Pittman of Crown Rights Media had the opportunity to interview Paul Washer at the 2011 Sermon Index Conference in Lilburn, Georgia a few weeks ago.  Knowing the interview was a presentation of the Gospel, […]

The Fear of God

September 16, 2011


One only has to take a brief survey of the American church landscape to clearly see how far gone is the visible church.  Whether it’s messages of health, wealth, and prosperity, purpose-driven mania, or man-centered foolishness, or churches saturated with liberalism, postmodernism, or paganism, the church visible is fatally ill.  This country boasts 85% of […]
