"My Sunday School Teacher Says Hell is Made Up"

I received an email this morning which said: "A Sunday school teacher at our church is now telling us that hell is made up! He gave us the link below to read. Can you please take a look at it and help me to defend truth?". Although Universalism isn't new, it's growing in popularity now days, as more and more people want to find ways to "air condition" Hell. ... [Read More!]

Calling-Out False Teachers And 'Naming Names'    Listen

Sites like Old Truth are magnets for the kind of criticism that says "you shouldn't point out error in others and call them out by name". But in this two-minute Q&A audio clip from the 2006 Shepherd's Conference, John MacArthur explains why it's necessary for public ministries to be exposed to public scrutiny. When a teacher holds up a set of beliefs as truth, their statements can be judged, and in fact SHOULD be judged, in light of scripture. Some say this is unloving, but it's actually a loving act to warn sheep of wolves in shepherd's clothing. An example of 'naming names' in scripture is 1 Timothy 1:19-20 where Paul says "some have made shipwreck of their faith, among whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan that they may learn not to blaspheme". ...

An Old School Approach to 'Small Groups'

Modern evangelical churches are prone to herd their flocks into an organized small group system, often under the administration of a Small Groups Pastor.
It's a popular idea, even with leaders of smaller churches, to mandate some sort of book to follow or a curriculum as a basis for discussion in these small groups; the Purpose Driven Life being one of the most well known. Contrast today's small group methodology with these directions given by Robert Murray M'Cheyne, in an informal letter that he wrote almost two-hundred years ago. ... [Read More!]

Pastors and Worldliness -- Then versus Now

One of the reasons that worldliness is rampant in today's church, is the lowering of standards for pastors. These days anyone can start a church, even if they have no seminary training, minimal bible knowledge, and even if they exhibit questionable personal behavior. The required ingredients seem to be zeal and enough charisma to captivate a crowd. Here's a look at the worldly standards of some pastors today as compared to pastors of centuries-past. ...

The Arrogant Bigotry of The Narrow Way?

Some lively discussion has been brewing in the comments of another one of my posts. It's been a clash between old truth certitude and the common postmodern mindset which views doctrinal precision as arrogant and legalistic. And showing an all too common misunderstanding of Jesus' conflict with the religious leaders of His day, the term 'Pharisee' is employed to represent those who hold firm to precise biblical truth. ...

The Gospel Offends Because it is Intolerant of Sin

There are a great many churches today where unbelievers remain unconverted, attending weekly, and never finding anything offensive about the message that's preached. Compare that to these observations from Charles Spurgeon's sermon "Unbelievers stumbling; Believers rejoicing". ... [Read More!]

Was Anyone Saved at the Cross?

There would seem to be no better day than the holiday known as "Good Friday", to ask some questions like: Who (if anyone) was actually saved at the Cross? And what did His death actually accomplish? Did Christ die for Judas? What about the people who lived in Sodom and Gomorrah, and were already in eternal punishment by the time Jesus went to the Cross; did He die for them? But the one question that needs a precise answer is this: Did Christ actually make a substitutionary sacrifice for sins or didn't He? If He did, then it was not for all the world, otherwise all the world would be saved. ... [Read More!]

"Inner Promptings" From The Great Awakening

Anyone who is truly convinced that God is speaking fresh words of revelation will inevitably view the later prophecies as somehow more relevant and more personal than the message of Scripture, which is more than two thousand years old. Inevitably, wherever personal prophecy has been stressed, Scripture has been deemphasized. Two thousand years of church history confirms that this is true. This same issue was hotly debated during the Great Awakening. It was one area where Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield did not (in the beginning) see eye to eye. ... [Read More!]
