Descent into the Abyss

Less than a year after a group of reprobate political appointees to the Supreme Court determined Sodomites have the constitutional right to marriage, the accelerating descent into the abyss of moral lawlessness and the rule of Antichrist continues unabated. “Less than a month after North Carolina lawmakers mandated that transgender people use bathrooms in public schools and government buildings that correspond to the gender on their birth certificates, a federal appeals court has ruled that Read More …

The Foolishness of Christian Apologetics

I have been reading Christian Apologetics by Cornelius Van Til and was suddenly struck by the foolishness of apologetics as a method of winning the lost.  Now I agree with Van Til that presuppositional apologetics are the only proper method of apologetics for Christians.  But, and therein lies the problem:  given the fallen state of unregenerate humanity, rational arguments will never change the heart.  It is ironic that Van Til, a Calvinist and committed to Read More …

Doritos and the Wrath of God

Doritos and the wrath of God?  Yes, more and more corporations are joining the gay parade and are setting themselves up as targets of the wrath of God.  There is an old non-Christian proverb that is none the less often true:  “Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad.”  In the Bible in Romans chapter 1 we find that God is constantly displaying His wrath against men who suppress or hold down the truth Read More …

The Failure of Modern Evangelism

Modern evangelism seldom produces genuine Christians.  In Billy Graham’s, reputedly the world’s greatest evangelist, crusades less than 1% of those going forward become church attenders let alone genuine born again Christians.  Bill Hybels, Rick Warren and Joel Osteen have managed to build huge “churches” filled with unregenerate “believers” who are there not because they belong to Christ but are there for the entertainment and the programs.  If you are familiar with the church growth movement Read More …

Churches, Sects and Cults

What are the differences between churches, sects and cults? What makes a church a church, a sect a sect and a cult a cult from a Christian theological point of view? let us begin with churches: Churches A church is an assembly of believers in Jesus Christ.  Its members consist in all those who have been regenerated by the Spirit of God and in whom the Spirit of Christ dwells.  A church abides in the Read More …

Cessationism – Proving Charismatic Gifts have Ceased

Cessationism – Proving Charismatic Gifts have Ceased From The Sword & Trowel 2011, issue 2 by Dr Peter Masters Original Article Does the Bible teach definitively that the charismatic gifts have ceased? Can cessationism (the view that they have ended) be proved? Some say that the cessationism cannot be conclusively proved from Scripture. We believe, however, that the ceasing of revelatory and sign-gifts in the time of the apostles is very plainly taught in God’s Read More …

I am a Fundamentalist Old Evangelical Protestant Christian

I am a Fundamentalist Old Evangelical Protestant Christian.  And here is why: I am a fundamentalist in the sense of the original fundamentalists, who were orthodox Bible believing Christians standing for the truth of fundamental doctrines that were under assault by apostate liberal protestantism.  There were and are some teaching so fundamental to the Gospel that to deny them is to place oneself outside Christianity. By the late 1900s many were denying the authority of Read More …

Feeding Sheep or Amusing Goats?

by Charles Spurgeon An evil is in the ‘professed’ camp of the Lord, so gross in its impudence, that the most short-sighted Christian can hardly fail to notice it. During the past few years this evil has developed at an alarming rate. It has worked like leaven, until the whole lump ferments!The devil has seldom done a more clever thing, than hinting to the Church that part of their mission is to provide entertainment for Read More …

Salvation is Impossible for Men

When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, “Who then can be saved?” But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, “With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” (Mat 19:25-26) It has been a year since we purchased the building that is now His Place Christian Bookstore and I have been reflecting on what I have learned in that time and that has taken me back to the Read More …

Can Christians Celebrate this 4th of July?

This 4th of July shall we stick our collective head in the sand?  Shall we pretend that we still live in the land the Pilgrims and Puritans suffered to build?  They did not go into the wilderness to establish a new Sodom, but to build a city set on a hill, a land for those who wished to live as Christians and ruled by the Word of God. We daren’t boycott the holiday festivities, what Read More …

Looking Deeper than the SCOTUS Decision

In many ways the decision by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) Friday was the culmination of a long journey that began in 1776 (or the Garden of Eden).  Can Man live without God?  Can a city built on sand long endure?  History shows conclusively the answer is no. The Soviet Union lasted less than 70 years.  The United States is now nearing its end. The United States was never founded as a Read More …

Old Evangelicalism versus Modern

I awoke this morning with one of those WOW moments.  I realized that not only has there been a moral and cultural revolution in America overthrowing God’s Law as a revelation of right and wrong, but there has also been a corresponding revolution in evangelicalism.  The old evangelicalism from the Reformation through the mid 20th century was profoundly God centered.  But since the end of WWII and the emergence of the new evangelicalism of Harold Read More …

James White’s first video response on America’s Kristallnacht

Has America just had its own moral Kristallnacht? There has been a profound shift in America since Obama came into power. The decision Friday was a watershed event especially for those recalcitrant Christians that still cling to their Bibles and who Obama has declared must have their minds and hearts changed. I watched as the news media reveled in the SCOTUS decision and as 2 million danced in the streets of New York City in Read More …

The death of Modern Evangelicalism

The High Court in its wisdom or lack of it has put every Bible believing disciple of Jesus in the position of bowing before Caesar or bowing before the Lord Jesus Christ.  For to recognize same-sex marriage is to deny the Lord Jesus.  Oh, there are many who call themselves Christians who will continue to say the words ‘Jesus is Lord’, but in mere hypocrisy. They will twist and contort the Scriptures to say what Read More …

SCOTUS declares war on God Almighty

The unregenerate Left and Right, the media and Wall-street, and a good portion of what calls itself the church, whether loudly or quietly, are celebrating SCOTUS’ declaration of war on God Almighty.  In their arrogance they imagine genuine Christians are like them and we will get over it; that we will grow accustomed to life in Sodom.  But God will not “get over it”, nor will we.  The spirit of their father the devil came Read More …

God Hates Sinners

God hates sinners.  That is what the Bible plainly states.  Nowhere in the Scriptures does it say God loves sinners.  Now that I have your attention let me explain. We have all been sold a bill of goods, a pig in a poke, a politician’s promise.  And I have preached it for years.  It was not till I heard David Platt preaching “God hates sinners”  that I actually began to examine the issue.  What the Read More …

The Cost of Salvation

We live in an age where God is ignored in His own house; in an age where the wisdom of the world is preferred by the ‘ministers’ of Christ over the offense of the cross.  Men and women like Rick Warren, Bill Hybels and Joel Osteen build huge mega-churches by marketing a people pleasing false gospel to a world eager for any way to God but the way He has provided in Jesus Christ.  For Read More …

Evangelicalism, the Assemblies of God and Sola Scriptura

This is not about the Assemblies of God. This is about evangelicalism’s departure from the foundational principle of the Reformation. The Assemblies of God (hereafter designated AoG) are the world largest pentecostal body with 67 million members and the ninth largest denomination in the United States. It is conservative and considered mainline evangelical. Because of these facts I am using them as an example of the fact that the evangelical/pentecostal/charismatic movements generally do not hold Read More …
