Why Paedobaptist/WCF Covenant Theology Does Not Work

I am a credo-baptist, and  I have various sympathies with the infant baptism position, especially on the basis of classical Reformed covenant theology. However, it is exactly upon that note that I disagree with the Westminster Confession of Faith, and other historic paedobaptist confessions, which I believe makes a poor case for infant baptism. I … More Why Paedobaptist/WCF Covenant Theology Does Not Work

God’s Particular Redemption In The Book of Hebrews

The book of Hebrews is a book that continues to gain relevance in today’s Reformed polemic against the constant onslaught of papal soteriology. After having watched Dr. James White’s lecture/sermon in the G3 Conference 2017, I believe I was grounded afresh in my confidence of Reformed soteriology. The book of Hebrews which in the beginning … More God’s Particular Redemption In The Book of Hebrews

Responding To One of Frank Turek’s Responses to an Atheist

I just recently watched a session where Frank Turrek, an evangelical Christian apologist and author, responded to an atheist student on the issue of how anyone can worship God considering “the many atrocities” that he has done in the Bible. The video can be watched here. Now there were a few things that I found … More Responding To One of Frank Turek’s Responses to an Atheist

Young, Restless, and //Reforming//: Reflecting New Calvinistic Culture

Good coffee, good music (movie soundtracks, heavy metal/rock classics, classical music), occasional gaming, movie nights, geeky discussions, and being a theological nerd. This summarizes much of the kind of person I am, Jesus, being the center of it all. No kidding, right? Today on Facebook; I almost got kicked out of a Reformed Baptist discussion … More Young, Restless, and //Reforming//: Reflecting New Calvinistic Culture

Pleasing To Christ: Towards A Christ-Centered Devotion

I have always been of the firm conviction that all doctrines finds it basis to some degree or another in the doctrine of the Trinity. This doctrine is the necessary groundwork for covenant, salvation, kingdom, and all other important aspects of theology. The covenant of redemption (and the finer parameters), namely, the covenant made between … More Pleasing To Christ: Towards A Christ-Centered Devotion

Show Us Christ!

”that their hearts may be comforted, they being knit together in love, and gaining all riches of the full assurance of understanding, that they may know the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ, in whom are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge hidden.” (Colossians 2:2-3) “Be careful that you don’t … More Show Us Christ!

The “Speaking In Tongues” Controversy: The Dark Side of Neo-Pentecostalism

I was raised in the classical Pentecostal tradition, and I saw all sides of the movement. I saw real men interested in authentic Christianity, and I also saw really bad things (things that I prefer not speaking about). I can recall asking my mother what the syllables were that a random lady uttered, and I was … More The “Speaking In Tongues” Controversy: The Dark Side of Neo-Pentecostalism

What I Mean by “Reformed”

It can sometimes be hard to call anyone “Reformed.” The new resurgence across denominations, namely the “New Calvinist” movement, has contributed to this confusion.[1] Honestly, I am not a member of any confessional Reformed church, I belong to a non-denominational and evangelical church. It is sometimes asked, what I mean when I use the term “Reformed” to … More What I Mean by “Reformed”

Another Response to Steven Sewell on Prevenient Grace

Some time ago this year I critiqued Arminian theologian Steve Sewell’s treatment of James 4:6; and 1 Peter 5:5. In Sewell’s argumentation, I pointed out some of the shortcomings that his Arminian approach to these texts have with regard to grace. Sewell emphatically pushed the point that the Scripture would thereby indicate that God’s grace is … More Another Response to Steven Sewell on Prevenient Grace
