Law of Love

“And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you, so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.” -1Thessalonians 3:12-13 In the Scriptures...

A Doctrine of Tribulation

For your consideration. As most of you know, I am an enthusiastic reader of history and have been since I learned to read at the ripe old age of five years old. As a pastor, this enthusiasm for history has been directed at church history. Of course, any study of church history must begin with... Continue Reading →

Imprecatory Prayer?

Recently I had a phone conversation with a friend concerning a statement made on social media. As usual the religious overtures of a theological post made more than a few eyebrows rise and caused some hostile responses to be made towards the one sharing it. This in-turn led to my friend posting a very similar... Continue Reading →

Ineffective Ministry Due to What?!

I have recently heard it said (again), and parroted on the theological bastion that is social media, that those who defend the use of what is commonly called the Received Text are part of a very small fringe group that are no more than kin to King James only advocates.

So often our immediate reaction to other people, when we perceive that we have been wronged in some... Continue Reading →

Broken Cisterns

“For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water (Jeremiah 2:13).” I read this verse earlier today, and the term “broken cisterns” stood out to me. As I began to contemplate what the prophet was saying... Continue Reading →

Why I Call Myself a Reformed Baptist

My sincere wish at times, is that there would be no need for such identifications as “Sovereign Grace Baptist,” or “Reformed Baptist.” Having grown up in a Calvinistic pastor’s home, I was blissfully unaware that any such distinctions were being made. However, the distinctions have been made and I find myself planted firmly on the... Continue Reading →
