The Faith OF Christ

For the vast majority of my Christian life, I attended a devout southern baptist church that taught strictly from the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible. Although I never heard anyone say that it was the only preserved translation of the Scriptures, I can now see that, although that was not stated and likely […]

How to Receive God’s Love?

I was recently listening to a Christian music station on the radio when I heard the testimony of some famous Christian musician that pertained to us asking more of God than we generally ask. This particular Christian musician mentioned how she had asked God to show himself in such a way that would open the […]

Thank You For Listening.

What follows is in response to a lengthy comment I received on a previous blog post from someone who goes by the alias of Chuck. I will respond briefly to certain portions of his comment which, I believe, deserve the most attention. Thanks for your comments. I believe you make a common error here, a category […]

Watering Down Hell

When most people think of hell, they picture unrelenting flames of wrath in some extra-dimensional realm on the outskirts of creation . . . totally without the presence of the Lord. When it comes to hell, many Christians, including myself, have been accused of watering down the gospel simply because we question the doctrine of […]

God is Love and Love never fails. 

If God’s love isn’t unfailing for all, then it isn’t unfailing at all. If God’s love fails for just one person, then he is not Love because Love never fails. Tell me, how does God express his unfailing love to those in hell? In my book, I propose that the only means through which unfailing […]

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 […]

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 […]

Jesus’ Deception

What if I told you . . . that Jesus was deceived? How would that be make you feel? Surprised? Aghast? Maybe confused or even outraged? Inquisitive? How would you respond? Would you tell me that I’m the one that’s deceived? Would you call me a false teacher or maybe a heretic. Quite frankly, I […]
