Clear Biblical Truth in an Age of Spiritual Darkness

The Gospel Disintegration: Pt 2 — Introducing Endless Doubts

Death with Wings

So, what really happens to the doctrine of sin and death when evolution has supposedly been in operation for billions of years before Adam? Since death is a basic, mechanical component of the evolutionary process. A process that God supposedly used to form the universe and develop man. Which, logically, makes death an integral part of that which God called, “good”.

Why, then, should man have any fear of death?

The Gospel Disintegration: Part 1

Columb Zoo Snake

He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of His Son“. (I John 5:10)

What is “the record” that God gave of His Son?

It begins with the first words of the book of Genesis and continues until the last words of  the book of Revelation.

Every Person is Religious

Canal Fulton Church View

Every man is religious.

Even the self-declared secularist is religious.

Even the atheist.

They just refuse to recognize that their philosophy is a religion.

That is why we are in the midst of a religious war. Even if it only has the appearance of a “cold war”, it is still a raging battle.

Faith is Based Upon Specific Words

Haceta Lighthouse

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” (Romans 10:17)

There is a dangerous current of unbelief that flows beneath the surface of our churches.

Specifically, questioning the straight-forward words that God has said. Which are the specific written words God has preserved in the scriptures.

The Total Sufficiency of Christ

Berea Fountain

All that we have spoken of in this site is based upon the foundation of Christ’s sufficiency.

Our salvation depends entirely upon His completed and totally-sufficient work on the cross.

Which is what distinguishes the true gospel from the countless counterfeit gospels that exist in the world. Making faith in Christ alone, by faith alone, by grace alone the separating distinctives from all else that falsely calls itself, “Christian”.

But that is only the beginning of the matter.

Take Up Your Cross

Morning Dock Silvercreek

And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.” (Luke 9:23)

This is one of the most misunderstood concepts of the Christian life.

Because it is usually taught as some self-imposed pain or burden that the Christian is to put upon himself. Or some regimen of duty and responsibility we must undertake to follow the Lord.

Instead, this is about a growing understanding that a Christian must learn about himself and his relation to sin. It is all about what the Lord has already accomplished for him.

In a Large Place

Allardale Panorama

The basic unspoken concern of most Christian believers is whether they are in proper fellowship with the Lord at any given moment.

By fellowship, we don’t mean “two fellows in a ship”, as Bob George often said. And by that, he was trying to help believers understand the truth about their relationship to Christ versus the common misunderstanding about “fellowship” with God that we get from incorrect teachings within the church.

The question that needs to be asked of all Christians is, “How do we know, at any given point, that we are OK with God?”

We are not talking about “salvation” here. That is presumed to be a settled issue for anyone who calls himself a Christian.

We are talking about having “peace with God” on a moment-by-moment basis.

So, what is the answer?

The Presence of the Lord: Part 2 — The Lord’s Work in the Lord’s Way

Patio Garden

In the Bible record, otherwise godly men would sometimes choose their own methods to accomplish the Lord’s work. Ignoring the Lord’s clear commands on how to do His work in His way. Choosing, instead, to work in another way to fulfill some promise or desire God had expressed to them.

This simple ignoring of God’s word in the name of a good Christian cause is an apt description of the New Evangelical movement. A movement that began back in the 1940s which has drastically changed the course of Evangelicalism.

Today Is The Day

Malabar Cloud B

This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24)

It’s hard to say that verse without hearing the song that has become so closely associated with it. It is a joyous phrase. One that comes to mind, at least for me, primarily in those times when I am low and fearful of what lies ahead.

But, recently, in the midst of a lot of physical ailments I’ve been dealing with in this “summer of pain” (Sorry. I probably sound like Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh) it occurred to me that this verse is an everyday verse.

Not just a good-day verse.
