Today I preached this exposition of Isaiah chapter 52:13-15 thru 53:1-12 at my church. John 3:16 is one of the most misquoted verses in the Bible and is not the Gospel. What Christ endured on His cross is not the romanticized love story #BigEva tells. It was the Father’s Holy Hellbent Hatred of sin &
A friend and brother in Christ whom I love dearly emailed the below video to me. The minister gave this speech before the Oxford Union Society on the topic of “Christianity, inclusivism, and same-sex acts.” It has since become popularly known as “The Speech That Shocked the World!” Though his speech may be conservative according
The doctrine of atonement is at the core of the Gospel. Therefore, it is essential for salvation. But through sanctification, God willing, I also believe in limited atonement, substitutionary atonement, and penal substitutionary atonement. But sadly, penal substitutionary atonement is a neglected doctrine. Arminians and many dispensationalists don’t want to believe God hates the sinner, not just sin. And that
Is country music icon Dolly Parton a false convert? Fact is, if an unregenerate person or an unrepentant Christian sit in a healthy Biblical Church, they will either be offended and leave, be convicted saved and converted, and/or be convicted repent and be restored. It appears Dolly does not have that type of Church. Let’s
In this podcast I include the video of Alistair Begg, and I talk about soteriology, justification, atonement, and the three man-centered churches I once attended. Applicable to Beggs analogy. My salvation was not in the first person. It had nothing to do with the false deity of me, myself, and I. And it had everything
Throughout the month of April, while our other Pastor preached the main sermons (we switched off), I hosted communion. But I decided to use this opportunity to do brief teachings on a specific passage, as well as disclose a particular doctrine that we can gleam from either the Text, or from what Christ accomplished on
While doing a Google search for [gospel + police] I discovered that CNN had endorsed and promoted a professing Christian police officers “Gospel” message, that video went “viral.” I attempted to download the CNN video but was unsuccessful. However, I was able to locate the exact public file that they featured in their news story.
Occasionally I will upload a video of hosting communion at Church while teaching from a different passage. This Communion is presented from Isaiah 53.
I pray this encourages the universal body elsewhere. Regarding my comments about being a “Liar.” The context of that admission was needing salvation from my sins. But now that the Lord has granted me repentance, a new birth, He has given me a new character; and so, I am no longer a liar.
In this Psalm we will see the graphic imagery of the pain and anguish that Jesus succumbed to. One scholar said “Approach this Psalm with the utmost solemnity and reverence, because you have probably never stood on holier ground before. You have come to Golgotha where the Good Shepherd is giving His life for the
Recently a Christian commented under one of my Open Air Preaching videos, “Why do you preach on ‘propitiation?’ Why don’t you just preach the Gospel?” My answer is ‘propitiation’ is a part of the Gospel. Propitiation is ‘one of two elements’ within the atonement, and the atonement is a part of the Gospel…. My show
My Pastor gave me the assignment to teach Romans 1:16 during our Lord’s Day worship service. Hence, the following video is an exposition of Romans 1:14-19. Or you can download the Mp3 audio file here. Below this video, for your reference, I also provided a transcript. Though obviously I will not be teaching through the
I don’t know how a true convert can watch the video excerpt of this “church service” without becoming righteously indignant, or convicted. Or perhaps even shed a tear. Though this Podcast was not about Allie Beth Stuckey, but she came to mind while producing it. Many of my fellow reformed brethren will not agree with
After watching the world commit unrepented continual idolatry over Kobe’s death, and then seeing Pastor Greg Laurie’s video on Kobe’s death, it’s time to say the following hard truths. Semper Reformanda! Greg Laurie’s aforementioned video can be seen here. To know more about ‘life after death,’ read my Gospel tract here. My article on the heretical
