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 […]

Contending for the truth Contending for the truth against the errors of modern religion is the duty of God’s servants. I hope our spirit is one of genuine love to all the chosen of God; but today’s rule of charity which requires us to keep silent on certain points in order to avoid controversy, I […]

Humbled or angered
