Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You. Psalm 63:3 “Faith does not promise us length of days, riches, and honours (the Lord not having been pleased that any of these should be appointed us); but is contented with the assurance, that however poor we may be in regard to present […]

“We expect salvation from [Jesus]–not because he stands aloof from us, but because ingrafting us into his body he not only makes us partakers of all his benefits, but also of himself. Therefore, I thus retort the argument, If you look to yourself damnation is certain: but since Christ has been communicated to you with […]

So, I was listening to a podcast, from an apologist I greatly respect, and he and I differ on baptism. He is a Reformed Baptist, and I am just plain ol’ Reformed. He made a comment about Presbyterian baptism, which I am just going to label paedobaptism throughout the rest of this. He wished not […]

Advent means coming. We often think of Advent as the time a baby is born, meek and mild, and laying in a manger no crying He makes (yeah right!). We often think of cozy little hay beds and fluffy winged angels and shepherds with red cheeks. I wonder, did the cattle barn have Christmas lights? […]

Well, here is a little list: Give thanks to God. We should not have wanted a man like Trump to be president but we should also not have wanted a woman like Hillary even more. So, give thanks that it is not as bad as it could have been, but be humble enough to admit […]

That’s us, right? Look at the buffoonery in politics. A bunch of kids fighting each other (rather depraved children I might add!). Look at the universities in our nation with comfort spaces and special areas for feelings. Look at those who seek self-definition. My four-year old son wore a cape and mask and declared he […]

Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel? 32 For I desire not the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God: cause therefore one another to return, and live ye. 19:1 Thou also take […]
