- Overview Of Romans Chapter 2 - Here is an Overview Of Romans Chapter 2.
Rom 2:1-3: The apostle shows that the Jew, who condemns the Gentiles, and considers them utterly unworthy of the blessings of the Gospel, is inexcusable, because he is guilty of the same crimes; and therefore shalt not escape the righteous judgment of [...]
- Overview Of Romans Chapter 1 - I’m dong an overview study of the book of Romans today. This was the book I was reading when the Lord saved my soul some 30 years when I was going time in jail for trafficking drugs.
I remember just as clear as if it was yesterday how God supernaturally [...]
- Prayerless People Are Proud - You can be proud of how humble you think you are. One can be proud of anything. Their “humble” rusty car, their “worldly” candy apple red Mustang, or their “fast” two wheel Amish buddy that can beat out the other brothers in the community.
False humility manifests itself in a fained [...]
- John Wesley’s Position On Sinless Perfection - QUESTION. What is Christian perfection?
ANSWER. The loving God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength. This implies, that no wrong temper, none contrary to love, remains in the soul; and that all the thoughts, words, and actions, are governed by pure love.
Q. Do you affirm, that this perfection excludes [...]
- John Fletcher’s Position On Sinless Perfection - The best way of opposing the doctrines of Christian imperfection and a death purgatory, is to place the doctrine of Christian perfection in a proper light. Christian perfection is the maturity of a believer’s grace under the Gospel of Christ.
It is absurd to suppose that this perfection is sinless, [...]
- The Christian’s Law - Sabbatarians are constantly crying, “We must keep God’s commandments.” This is true. But where they err is in applying the term “commandments” exclusively to the ten written on stone. They quote such texts as 1 John 3:22; 2:4; Rev. 12:17; 22:14, and apply them to the old stone table law. [...]
- The Old and New Sabbath Contrasted - 1. The shadowy Sabbath was the observance of every seventh day. “The seventh day is the Sabbath” (Exod. 20:10). The new covenant Sabbath is not the observance of this particular day. “One man [the Jew] esteemeth one day above another: another [the Gentile Christian] esteemeth every day alike.
Let every [...]
- The Abolition Of The Law - Adventists are continually crying, “God’s law [meaning the Sinaitic code] is unchangeable.” But Paul contradicts them, boldly stating “that there is made of necessity a change also of the law” (Heb 7:12). “The law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ” (John 1:17). “He taketh [...]
- The Sabbath When Originated & Enjoined Upon Man? - The plan of redemption was conceived in the mind of God prior to the foundation of the world. It was a mystery then hid in him alone. Long ages before that mystery was unlocked to mankind in the person of Jesus Christ, who made the world’s atonement, it cast a [...]
- Textus Receptus & Early Christian Writings - David Bercot has a large number of teaching CDs at Scroll Publishing Co, and I enjoy his style of teaching and have found them informative.
This evening I listened to his teaching on the Textus Receptus Greek text (the Greek text the King James Version was translated from) and Early Christian [...]
- Pure Conscience Void of Offense - The conscience is a monitor. Its function is very important for us to understand.
It is the conscience that determines whether moral actions and reactions that we make, or are considering to make, are right or wrong, based on our personal standard of ethics.
From the basics of these decisions which [...]
- Semi-Pelagianism - I had some one tell me this week that they had heard I was teaching Sinless Perfectionism and Semi-Pelagianism. Most people do not know what either of these terms mean, other than it is not a good thing.
The glossary in Finney’s Systematic Theology defines Sinless Perfectionism as “SINLESS PERFECTION: [...]
- Pelagianism - I have never been accused of holding the doctrine of Pelagianism, but here is what it is.
“Pelagianism is a theological theory named after Pelagius (ad. 354 – ad. 420/440). It is the belief that original sin did not taint human nature and that mortal will is still capable of choosing [...]
- Considerations on Divorce A Vinculo Matrimonii 1857 - This is a review of a booklet published in 1857 by Edward Badeley, who was a Barrister in London, England. He did a study to find out whether a divorce for the reason of adultery was or was not prohibited by New Testament scriptures.
My purpose of this review is to [...]
- Except for Fornication Clause of Matthew 19:9 - Updated: 26th 4:01pm
Introduction to McFall’s Research Paper
Leslie McFall has written an interesting 43-page paper called The Biblical Teaching on Divorce and Remarriage. In his paper, he discusses an addition that Desiderius Erasmus added to his Greek-Latin New Testament (1516 1st ed) that [he claims] changed the way Matthew 19:9 has [...]
- Divorce & Remarriage Articles - I have been putting some time into the subject of “Divorce and Remarriage” this week. I have added a number of documents to this site, and have also written a couple of posts on the subject.
About a week ago, Michael Whennen picked out my article on Church of God Restoration [...]
- Divorce and Remarriage Excuses - I would hold that the Bible teaches that in all cases where there is a living lawful1 spouse, it is adultery to remarry.
If allowance for remarriage is given for unfaithfulness, based on the Mat 19:9 exception that is found in the Textus Receptus (TR) and in most translations, then all [...]
