God v. The People

According to Scripture, each of us must stand before the judgement seat of God when our time on earth is done. Christians do not contend with this statement. However, there is not a consensus on what follows. Most Christians maintain that there are only two possible outcomes. The first, of which, follows an innocent verdict: […]

Return. You are forgiven!

“I have swept away your sins like a cloud. I have scattered your offenses like the morning mist. Oh, return to me, for I have paid the price to set you free.” —‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭44:22‬ ‭NLT‬‬ This verse sounds unbelievable, doesn’t it? It sounds so good that, when spoken in terms of universal forgiveness, a “good […]

Doctrines of Fear

“This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.” —‭‭Matthew‬ ‭15:8–9 One of the largest dissimilarities between the Old & New Covenant concerns the distinguishing of God-given commandments from those given in the appearance of divine authority. […]

The Gates Of Hell Shall Not Prevail

“And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” —Matthew‬ ‭16:18‬ ‭ESV‬‬ This verse, in particular, is one of the most reassuring verses in all the Scriptures. It is a promise—one with which many have found solace. In […]

Upcoming Book: Hell in a Nutshell- The Mystery of His Will (Excerpt)

Pond Scum Theology “Pond-scum theology makes even less sense in the context of  the Gospels. To believe that people are inherently worthless to God strips the incarnation, crucifixion, and resurrection of all their meaning and power. It makes Jesus look like a fool for dying for us, and it leaves behind his followers with little incentive to seek […]

Where is Your Faith

When I ask Christians if they believe Endless Conscious Torment (ECT) is an essential doctrine, most often they say that it is. Some understand that it is not a doctrine over which we should divide, but the vast majority of Christians feel rather strongly about this doctrine. They genuinely believe that the doctrine of ECT […]

Friendly Fire: The Church’s War Against Heresy

By the grace of God, the Church has broken free from the bondage of what has been popularly referred to as “the Dark Ages”, during which church officials possessed an extraordinary amount of political power. For some time thereafter, Christians persecuted Christians—even to the point of death. Historically, the persecution of heretics was justified because […]

The Second Death

From the moment of birth, death is just over the horizon. It is much like the sun as it rises in the east- beautiful and bright. With it, comes anticipation and hope. Anticipation, for what is to come. Hope, for seemingly an endless array of possibilities. At midday comes satisfaction for all that has been […]

Theological Impeccability

Don’t you just hate it when someone says you are deceived or dishonest about one thing or another simply because they believe they have received a revelation from the Holy Spirit? Me, too!! What about those who believe differently and are just as sure that the Holy Spirit has revealed truth to them? What makes one or the other so special as to have the Holy Spirit on his side rather than on hers?

Are They Really Saved?

How often have you heard, “They were not saved to begin with.” when someone claims to have defected from the Faith? Christians who believe in eternal security or “once saved; always saved” are usually those who would dare to say such a thing. However, this blog has nothing to do with that theology. Rather, I […]
