The Past Is Past

August 31st, 2016

The Past Is Past

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, (Philippians 3:13 KJV)

The past is over and done with.  Nothing you can do or say will change it, erase it, or improve upon it.  Therefore, quit reaching out for things of yesterday and begin living for the day at hand with great expectations, and cloaked in ...

Where is the love of God in Calvinism? Part 2

Where is the love of God in Calvinism?

Calvin and Augustine

Reformed theologians credit John Calvin with creating the essential points of Calvinist theology.  However, it is commonly agreed upon that the core principles of Calvinism were first taught by Augustine centuries before Calvin. Augustine was the “Father of Roman Catholic Theology,” but oddly he is claimed by Catholics and Protestants alike as the greatest of theologians.  As we shall see, much of Calvin’s teaching is “warmed-over Catholicism” [Hunt, p. 36].

John Calvin:  ...

Where is the love of God in Calvinism? Part 1

Where is the love of God in Calvinism?

Let’s look at the words John Calvin himself:

God – arranges all things – He has decreed that they are so to happen – All events take place by His sovereign appointment. Would this include sin? Does God “will” man to sin? Calvin answers “yes!

Scripture clearly proves that God by His eternal and immutable counsel determined once for all those whom it was ...

August 29th, 2016

Do You Expect to Receive Beans by Sowing Corn?

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (Galatians 6:7 KJV)

Is the only context of this verse, recorded in the book of Galatians, to be understood only to be speaking of sowing sin and reaping consequences?  Sinful unregenerate man receiving from God exactly what a sinful man deserves?

Or can the context of this verse go under the surface to include the ...

God Confused Man’s Communication

God Confused Man’s Communication

And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. (Genesis 11:1 KJV)

The number of languages in this world cannot be specifically nailed down because there are so many.  Some are being used in remote or far-flung areas in this vast world.  It is safe to say there are hundreds, if not thousands, of different languages in use today.

Imagine for a moment if all mankind were speaking the same language.  There was a ...

Jesus Set the Bar for Pardoning Others

Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. (Matthew 18:21-22 KJV)

Peter must have been incredibly challenged by what Jesus revealed to him.  Perhaps he instantly stopped in his tracks to allow these words of Jesus to register in his heart ...

There is None Righteous

Romans 3:10-18 (KJB) 

serpent4As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have ...
