The necessity of two Gospels

While it goes without saying that there are at least two Gospels (or Evangels) in Scripture (and please read this article if you aren’t aware of this fact already), some people might ask why there are two Gospels in the first place, and why Jesus didn’t preach the same Gospel during His earthly ministry that Paul later preached… Continue reading The necessity of two Gospels

Will anyone escape death?

There’s a strange doctrine being taught by certain members of the body of Christ recently which suggests that the Snatching Away is not something we should actually consider to be our blessed hope (or happy expectation, depending on your Bible translation), but rather that everyone in the body of Christ will instead definitely die, and… Continue reading Will anyone escape death?

“The last trump” will indeed be the last trump

Most members of the body of Christ believe the Snatching Away (aka the Rapture) will take place prior to the Tribulation, but this brings up the question of how “the last trump” of 1 Corinthians 15:52 can be sounded prior to our being quickened, or vivified (meaning made immortal), and caught up in the air… Continue reading “The last trump” will indeed be the last trump

The simplest answer to the question of whether a believer can lose their salvation

The question is often asked: Can a believer lose their salvation? Now, obviously I’m not referring to general salvation here, meaning the salvation that everyone is guaranteed to eventually experience thanks to Christ’s death for our sins, entombment, and resurrection on the third day (the salvation that involves the eventual vivification — meaning immortality —… Continue reading The simplest answer to the question of whether a believer can lose their salvation

If all you did was quote the Bible, you’ve probably already lost the argument

It doesn’t matter what the topic is, if you’re in a disagreement with another Bible believer over a particular doctrine or theological point and literally all you do is quote Scripture in order to try to prove your viewpoint, in the vast majority of cases you’re not only admitting that you can’t actually support your viewpoint from… Continue reading If all you did was quote the Bible, you’ve probably already lost the argument

Yes, Calvinism is wrong. However…

Watching Christians argue over whether Calvinism is right or wrong is both amusing and sad at the same time. Because yes, while Scripture does indeed teach that Calvinism is wrong, it also teaches that Arminianism (or “Provisionism,” as some seem to prefer to call the soteriological position these days) is equally wrong. You see, both… Continue reading Yes, Calvinism is wrong. However…

Why I believe in the salvation of all humanity

The reason I believe in the eventual salvation of all humanity is really quite simple. Many years ago, while I myself was still a believer in the popular doctrine of never-ending punishment for unbelievers, I encountered debates between other Christians who also believed the popular doctrine arguing with a seemingly strange group of people who… Continue reading Why I believe in the salvation of all humanity

The Heresy Files

I’ve taken a number of my articles and converted them into PDFs (beginning with the most important ones, although I’ll try to add more as time permits), with footnotes instead of links in the paragraphs themselves, making it much easier to view the scriptural references as you read, which is useful for those who want… Continue reading The Heresy Files

Not of yourselves

Pretty much every Christian is familiar with what Ephesians 2:8-9 states: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Somehow, though, most Christians seem to miss what this passage is saying. Before getting into it, however,… Continue reading Not of yourselves
