CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3). The gospel is not just that Christ died. The gospel is how that He died for us according to God’s eternal […]

s Our Message Offensive?         Paul called his message “the offense of the cross” (Galatians 5:11).  Again and again he warned that the true Gospel of God’s grace and glory would meet with great opposition from the religious world and the natural world.  “The preaching of the cross is foolishness” (I Corinthians 1:18).  “The natural […]

“Preaching peace by Jesus Christ (he is Lord of all).” Acts 10:36. Octavius Winslow LET us turn our attention to the subject-matter of our Lord’s address to the weary. What does He speak to them? Some would reply, the law. No; but the law of God never spoke a word of comfort to the weary. […]

What is a successful ministry? (Don Fortner) “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.” 1 Corinthians 4:2 The desperate need of the hour is faithful men in the pulpits of our churches.

MONSTROUS IMPLICATIONS

Posted by on November 17, 2019 at 7:27 am

MONSTROUS IMPLICATIONSLet me say at the outset, the Bible does not teach or imply that Christ died for all men without exception.  He died for the elect, His sheep, His church.  Yet most of what goes on under the name of Christianity teaches He died for all men without exception.  There are even men who say they believe […]

The Miracle of Hearing

The Miracle of Hearing God-called gospel preachers spend a lot of time in prayer and preparation of the Word. They are deeply concerned with being clear and faithful to preach Christ and Him crucified. “How shall they hear without a preacher” Rom. 10:14. Paul asked rhetorically, “who is sufficient for these things”? I Cor. 2:16. […]
