The religionists of the day

The religionists of the day (J. C. Philpot, “Faith’s Standing-Ground” 1862) “And everyone will hate you because of yourallegiance to Me.” Luke 21:17 Professors of religion have always been thedeadliest enemies of the children of God. Who were so opposed to the blessed Lord as theScribes and Pharisees? It was the religious teachersand leaders who […]

This is the doctrine that we preach! (Charles Spurgeon) This is the doctrine that we preach:If a man is saved—all the honor is to be given to Christ.If a man is lost—all the blame is to be laid upon himself. You will find all true theology summed up in these two short sentences:Salvation is all […]

ACCORDING TO THE FREE-WILL SCHEME

Posted by on May 9, 2019 at 12:10 pm

ACCORDING TO THE FREE-WILL SCHEME, the Lord intends good, but He must wait like a lackey on His own creature to know what his intention is; God willeth good, and would do it, but He cannot because He has an unwilling man who will not have God’s good thing carried into effect. What do ye, sirs, but drag the […]

Faith and Works

Faith and Works There are many who call themselves Christians who would say a man is not saved by works. They then turn around and make a work out of believing or look to their works as evidence of their salvation. If by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no […]

Here we stand

Posted by on September 26, 2018 at 1:29 am

We seek to uphold, explain, promote and preach the message of God’s free grace in Christ and the absolute necessity of divine power to initiate, apply and secure the salvation of sinners. We do not look to man to save himself for we know he cannot. We do not appeal to men to save themselves […]

Are you a believer?

… and were by nature children of wrath, even as others. Eph.3:3 Are you a believer? Are you what is called a saved person, a child of God? If so, how did that come about? Why did God save you? If your answer is, “because I believed in Jesus,” then you are over-qualified to be […]

If my wife asked me if I loved her….

Posted by on July 23, 2018 at 10:23 am

If my wife asked me if I loved her, and I replied that I did in a sense, it would not be received well. I hear preachers speak of God loving all men in a sense, and sincerely offering mercy and forgiveness to all men – that is quite simply not true! The apostles never […]

Sovereign or Superior Grace?

Sovereign or Superior Grace? Many, I have found report to believe in Sovereign Grace. They speak of their love for a God who sovereignly elected a people, a Christ who sovereignly atoned for those particular people alone, and a Spirit who sovereignly and successfully regenerates the same chosen people. In their confessions, they boldly and […]

The Gospel is not an offer from God.

Posted by on March 4, 2018 at 9:14 am

The Gospel is not an offer from God. He does not offer His mercy and grace so that it is up to your acceptance or rejection of what is offered as to whether or not you will have it. He does not offer anyone the forgiveness of sins. He does not offer salvation, and then […]

WHEN IS A PERSON SAVED?

Posted by on March 4, 2018 at 9:11 am

WHEN IS A PERSON SAVED? Religion gives us many answers to that question. Some say that God’s elect were saved in eternity. They tell us that election is salvation; but that in not so. Election is unto salvation. Election secures salvation and makes it certain. But election is not salvation. “God hath from the beginning […]
