Psalm 69 is a messianic Psalm -- that is, the Psalm is prophetic and describes things the Messiah would undergo and do. It's fairly easy to establish this. There are multiple quotations of it in the New Testament that apply it to Christ. They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs... 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...

REASONS FOR INFANT BAPTISM? PART 1 (Do They Exist?)
PAEDOBAPTISM. Is there a valid reason for doing it? More importantly, is there a valid biblical reason for doing it? See THIS ARTICLE for my thoughts on paedobaptism and the covenant of grace. Over the last few months, a dear brother in the Lord has been sharing what he deems to be “Reasons for Infant... Continue Reading →
PAEDOBAPTISM MOCKS THE OLD TESTAMENT

It also shouldn’t be a surprise when I say the Baptist and Presbyterian views of baptism will revolve around how we view the covenant of grace. Each side believes in the covenant of grace, but we greatly differ in how we believe it is applied as... Continue Reading →
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 →
Where Does Faith Come From?
This may sound like a rather obvious question but you would be surprised how many people get it all wrong. The dictionary defines faith as belief that is not based on proof. Where does this faith come from? Is it a product of a decision we make or is it something more? Thankfully, the bible... Continue Reading →
Could Jesus Sin?
This is a topic that has been brought up many times over the years. There are always two sides with two totally different views. One side believes that since Jesus was a man, He could sin but chose not to. The other side believes that since Jesus was God, He could not sin at all.... Continue Reading →
Jesus in Hell? Where Did He Go?
How many of you clicked this because of the title? It’s okay. You can admit it. Yes, you read it right. While it may sound blasphemous to one without understanding, by the end of this article, it may actually sound like solid doctrine. This subject was brought up in a recent episode of The Particular... Continue Reading →
Roman Catholics: Mission Field or Family?
In this article, I want to bring something to the table that has confused many people over the years. It is a controversial discussion. It is a topic that many people feel they know the basics of but fall short when asked for an explanation. The subject is whether Roman Catholicism should be considered a... Continue Reading →
