Randy Alcorn just re-published Michael McClymond‘s article titled 12 Questions for Those Considering Universalism (originally published in December on The Gospel Coalition website as 12 Questions for the Would-Be Universalist). Because some Christians who haven’t studied the topic carefully enough might not know how easy it is to answer these questions, I thought I’d quickly do… Continue reading Answers to “12 Questions for Those Considering Universalism”
As I wrote last week, many Infernalists (and, I should add, even some Annihilationists) will quote Bible verses assuming that they disprove Universalism, and presumably also assuming that we’ve never heard those passages before (or at least assuming we don’t believe those passages are true). Anyone who does that without already knowing how it is… Continue reading You’re not ready to reject Universalism yet
It’s been brought to my attention that some people have mistakenly assumed this website is run by the CPC (the Concordant Publishing Concern, who are the people responsible for the translation and publishing of the CLV, meaning the Concordant Literal Version of the Bible). While those who run the CPC are fellow “Concordant” believers, and… Continue reading This website is not run by the Concordant Publishing Concern
In order to convince us Mid-Acts Dispensationalists we’re wrong about our belief that there is more than one Gospel proclaimed in Scripture, one has to be able to first answer some questions. If one can’t answer these questions, they won’t be able to convince us that we’re wrong (it’s as simple as that). First, would… Continue reading Questions you must answer
Want a handy little trick for discussing theology with Christians (especially Christians who believe that less literal translations of Scripture, such as the KJV, are well translated)? Ask them what the Bible says about the topic you’re discussing. Yesterday I was chatting with one of the street preachers here in Toronto, and he asked me… Continue reading What does the Bible say that is?
Those of us in the ecclesia called the body of Christ — not to be confused with members of the Christian religion who mistakenly use our title — are not Trinitarians (nor are we Modalists, for the same reasons we don’t believe in the Trinity). As far as why we aren’t Trinitarians, I’ve written about that elsewhere, so please… Continue reading Concordant Christology: Arianism vs Socinianism
For many years now, English speaking members of the body of Christ have tended to prefer literal translations of Scripture, including Bible versions such as the CLV (the Concordant Literal Version), the YLT (Young’s Literal Translation), and the Writ (also known as the Dabhar Translation), to name what are probably the three most popular literal… Continue reading Reading the KJV concordantly
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
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?
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
