While serving in the 90s as the elected Vice President of a police organization, the President (a moderate Republican) warned others about me saying, “Watch out, he’s to the right of Reagan!” Those words were meant to insult me. Nonetheless, those words have stuck with me all these years, and I receive them as a

The LORD has brought this wretched sinner a long way from his former false teachings of arminianism and dispensationalism (or leaky dispensationalism). And so, it grieves me to see how many professing confessional believers are truncating important doctrines from their confessions of faith. We saw this demonstrated in how most elders and parishioners wrongfully handled
In this sermon excerpt, I discuss my former errs of dispensationalism, intentionally disobeying the Fourth Commandment – to keep the Sabbath Day holy. That we need to keep this commandment, but when necessary, to be graceful to our military and first responders that protect us on Sundays. How the Lord used me to thwart active
This was a difficult sermon to preach. Afterward, I tendered my resignation as pastor, giving them a six-week notice. My wife and I love this church dearly, and we will miss them dearly. But Lord willing, by faith, we are transitioning into a new chapter in our life; with new opportunities – Deo volente! In
This is an excellent video commentary on Biblical love by Martyn Lles. But it could be theologically dangerous to share this with an anonymous internet audience without this disclaimer. Gods’ love comes with much exclusivity. According to the Scriptures, this below noted love is only for Gods elect, those born again. And when Lles refers
In July of this year, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene spoke at the 412 Church in Murrieta, California. That news gained my attention for two reasons. First, this church is located in my Inland Empire region, and I’ll tell you the second reason later. I watched the video of Greene’s speech, and I agree with most
Though I am very appreciative of the many books I have read and accumulated over many decades. But when they are no longer in use, and become mere dust collectors, and/or are doctrinally indifferent, then it’s time to redistribute another box of books, which makes more room for new books (or more solid old books).
In this podcast I include the video of Alistair Begg, and I talk about soteriology, justification, atonement, and the three man-centered churches I once attended.
While doing a Google search for [gospel + police] I discovered that CNN had endorsed and promoted a professing Christian police officers “Gospel” message, that video went “viral.” I attempted to download the CNN video but was unsuccessful. However, I was able to locate the exact public file that they featured in their news story.
I made this Podcast one year ago, but shortly thereafter I made it ‘private,’ and forgot about it. But based on current events, I believe it was and is very necessary to keep it available for the public. Since the White Horse Inn has been hosting this man, I no longer listen to them. The
“Join host Jerry Johnson for this week’s edition of “Against the World” as he outlines a short list of the advantages Reformed ministers, theologians, thinkers and individuals have over those who adhere to a more general broad Evangelical faith.” https://www.youtube.com/user/NiceneCouncilcom/ Dr. Jerry Johnson has been tagged here as well.
The signs of a healthy & biblical Church & how I used my COVID stimulus funds to resist socialism – Podcast #41 Update: Here’s one of the ways I give via this giving campaign.
While doing expository teaching on this chapter, I also applied the importance of believing in the God of these Scriptures. As one woman yesterday that was killing her child at an abortion mill, claimed to already believe in both God and Jesus. I also discussed the importance of the Doctrine of Divine Impassibility, as well
I agree with James White here, as MacArthur’s eschatology comes from his #dispensationalism. It was defeatist, to say the least. I don’t “lose” here, and I have nothing to complain about, and everything to be thankful for. “To die is to gain” (Phil 1:21). It’s a win-win! A side note: As I’ve said before. I
