I want to thank The Particular Baptist team for feedback and edits. Having other eyes on your work is always best (Proverbs 19:20). This seemingly strange phrase may go unnoticed when reading paragraph 1 of chapter 11 as found in the 2nd London Baptist Confession of Faith. It is buried among the body of the... Continue Reading →
God Disciplines His Children
Thanks to The Particular Baptist team who reviewed and edited this article. The discipline of the Lord can come in different methods. I think in two different ways, at least primarily: through suffering and through His Word. We must not think that the Christian life will be one only of ease and that we will... Continue Reading →
Van Tillian Inconsistency
I want to start off by saying that I fall into the “presup” camp when it comes to apologetics. I find the position to be most consistent with Scripture (which I am not seeking to defend in this article). However, I find problems among those in the camp and even with some of Van Til’s...

MATTERS OF GOD: Where is Your Zeal?
“Why so serious?” It’s a famous question that nearly every movie buff will recognize. But I’d like to pose a counter question. Why are we not serious enough? Why are we so lackadaisical in our approach to the things of God? I mean, we’ll pray when things go wrong, give thanks when things go right,... Continue Reading →
THREE SIMPLE WORDS: Grace, Faith, Regeneration
I want to start out by asking a question. I’m just going to mention three simple words and I want you to put them in chronological order. While contemplating the order in which you believe these words should be placed, I ask you to truly question what the words actually mean. The words are: 1)... Continue Reading →
THEONOMY: A Doctrine of Ignorance and Error
About a year ago, I wrote an article called Theonomy No More. In it, I addressed certain points such as why a theocracy is an unbiblical (and horrible) idea, how it inconsistently applies the threefold division of Law, and how it minimizes the completed work of Christ. Since writing that article, I’ve received multiple comments... Continue Reading →
DEATH & SOCIETY: A Tragic Inconsistency
DEATH. Nobody really likes the word. In fact, many actually fear it. Life is precious and valued while death is shunned. My grandma once told me a story of how, when I was very young, she was explaining death to me. She said I put my foot down in defiance and proclaimed, “I refuse to... Continue Reading →
GLORY: From Death to Life
Last week (CLICK HERE), I wrote about the birth of Christ. We went back to 650 years prior when it was prophesied, and continued on to His death. We learned that the whole reason Christ came to this Earth was to die in obedience to the Father so that we might live. While we covered... Continue Reading →
What Are You Thankful For?
THANKSGIVING. It’s finally over. The food was cooked, everybody is still full from Thursday, and there are enough leftovers to carry us into 2021. Perhaps, as you sat around the table, you may have partaken in the tradition of going around the room as each person shared one thing he or she is thankful for.... Continue Reading →
Glory to God Alone!
“Not to us, O Lord, not to us,But to Your name give gloryBecause of Your lovingkindness, because of Your truth.”Psalm 115:1, NASB NOT TO US. We live in a world that screams, "US!" Whether it be our job success, latest toys, or life experiences, the world says to always look out for #1. The sheer... Continue Reading →
