A Reflection on Needful Change

It’s Fall time here in Colorado. This means the hillsides are glowing with the reds and yellows of the aspen trees that thrive in the mountains. The change in colors is not the result of these aspens deciding to put on a show once a year. It is instead a time of preparation for the […]

Becoming Conquerors for Christ

The top of a news article I recently came across featured two photos at the top. Both photos showed world leaders, one from Russia, one from the United States. One held a tiger, the other held a small, fluffy, white dog. I’m sure you can probably guess which of one of these men was holding […]

Hays: Difficulties for contemporary Christian theology

Richard Hays: Difficulties for contemporary Christian theology “Difficulties for contemporary Christian theology arise whereever acute awareness of continuity with Israel’s scripture is lost – whether  unwittingly forfeited or deliberately rejected. Many Christian congregations today are in fact naïvely Marcionite in their theology and practice: in their worship services they have no Old Testament reading, or […]

Biddison: Conditions Precedent & Conditions Subsequent

“Since the creation of contract law within the English common law there have been the bookends of “conditions precedent” and “conditions subsequent.” Practically speaking, all contracts include conditions precedent, i.e., those conditions without whose satisfaction the contract is never consummated and its benefits are never realized.

Goodwin: Works of Obedience Are Necessary to Salvation

“Works of new obedience are required as necessary to the possession of salvation [i.e. how we maintain it], but faith is that alone which puts us into a condition of having the title and right to it, by the blood and righteousness of Christ [i.e. how we gain it].” —Thomas Goodwin, The Works of Thomas […]

The Doctrine of Apostasy

Apostasy, the unforgivable sin (i.e. blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, falling away) is the result of refusing to obey the official prescription of repentance/justice[1] issued by Christ’s church (through her elders/judicial committee). Simply put, it is unrepentance in re: to the church. Biblical Support: 1.1. Rejecting the authority/power of the Holy Spirit is an unforgivable […]

A Church Under the Lordship of Jesus Christ

A church under the Lordship of Jesus Christ is one whose firm and unflinching commitment is to: be holy NOT happy (1Pe 1; 1Ti 6) contending for Biblical truth NOT compromise (Jud 1) loving God NOT the world (1Jo 2) the glory of Christ (His church) NOT our own glory (2Th 2 w/2Co 8) making […]

6 Statements Regarding Unconditional Love

All love has conditions. Who or what determines the condition(s) of our love also reveals who or what controls us. The other person, the one we are extending “unconditional love” to, is the actually the one determining the conditions of our love. Unconditional love therefore just means it is that person, the one we are extending […]

“Justice and only justice you shall seek” – Deu 16:20 1. Jesus establishes a justice system for the New Covenant community (Mat 18:15-20). 1.1.

Quotable “Christian” Heresy

“My salvation rests solely in God’s faithfulness to me, not mine to Him. Sadly I am aware that at my best I fail miserably every day, but I know beyond a shadow of a doubt I’m saved having accepted Christ’s free gift of salvation through His death on a cross for my sins.  I am […]

Understanding Justice and Repentance

The relationship between Justice and Repentance is inextricable. Therefore, to understand one, we must understand both. With that mind, consider the following regarding Repentance and Justice: 1.

BIBLICAL JURISPRUDENCE

ju·ris·pru·dence = a legal system One of the first things Jesus makes clear during His earthly ministry is that the entire content of the Law (the legal system established by God under the OC) remains intact for the New Covenant Community/Church (Mat 5:17-20).

Capital Crimes

One of the first things Jesus makes clear during His earthly ministry is that the entire content of the Law (“every jot and tittle”) remains intact for the New Covenant Community (Mat 5:17-20).
