First, a quick explanation of the Infernalist doctrine. Infernalism is the theological name for the soteriology believed by most Christians, which is the idea that if someone has committed a single sin in their lifetime — which every single human aside from Jesus has done at some point while they’re still a young child —… Continue reading The Hebrew Scriptures prove Infernalism is unscriptural

How long did “for ever” last in Bible times?
In my next article (which you can read here) I’ll be explaining how the Hebrew Scriptures (meaning the books of the Bible that are normally, and mistakenly, referred to as “the Old Testament”) prove that Infernalism is an entirely unscriptural soteriology, but first, I should quickly explain why the Hebrew words that are generally translated… Continue reading How long did “for ever” last in Bible times?
Out of the frying pan, into the fire
One of the street preachers I speak with fairly regularly likes to use his own conversion experience as proof that he’s been saved, and that those who disagree with his version of Christianity haven’t been. You see, he was apparently once a drug dealer on the streets of Toronto, involved in all manner of immorality,… Continue reading Out of the frying pan, into the fire
Events still to come
I wrote the following in response to a post on Reddit some time back, and I thought it might be useful to share on my website as well, for those who aren’t necessarily entirely familiar with eschatology and what the various books of the Bible say is still to come. I should say, this is… Continue reading Events still to come
Each in their own order
Before getting into the topic at hand, which is the order of salvations to come that Paul wrote about, it’s important to understand why humans actually sin in the first place (other than Adam and Eve; they had a whole other reason that we don’t have time to get into here), and why Jesus didn’t… Continue reading Each in their own order
How one baptism proves two Gospels
Apparent contradictions in the Bible are some of the greatest evidences that there are at least two Gospels. Please note that I’m not saying these things actually are contradictions. I’m just saying that they seem to be contradictions if one doesn’t consider the proper context of each passage, and also that taking the context into… Continue reading How one baptism proves two Gospels
A few thoughts on abortion
First things first, I need to point out that I’m not taking a position on whether you should consider abortion to be right or wrong for you in this article. As far as those of us in the church called the body of Christ go, worrying about whether something is sinful or not isn’t something… Continue reading A few thoughts on abortion
How Christians reject the free gift of salvation
When you tell most Christians that the outcome of Paul’s Gospel is that everyone will eventually experience the free gift of salvation, they’ll inevitably say that people have to receive the gift in order to be saved, as though that statement helps support their position that not everyone will be saved. You see, what they… Continue reading How Christians reject the free gift of salvation
A challenge for Christians regarding my theology
When a Christian discovers that my current interpretations of Scripture aren’t the same as the interpretations they hold to, on most occasions they feel compelled to tell me I’m wrong and that I need to stop interpreting Scripture that way. The problem is, nearly every Christian who has condemned my beliefs will try to convince… Continue reading A challenge for Christians regarding my theology
Did Paul mean the opposite of what he wrote?
[All passages are quoted from the Concordant Literal Version of the Bible.] Me: I’d like to quote some passages the apostle Paul wrote that I’ve memorized. Would you be willing to listen to them and let me know if I’m remembering them correctly? Him (a street preacher): Sure. Go for it. Me: Okay, cool. Thanks.… Continue reading Did Paul mean the opposite of what he wrote?
