The Foreknowledge of God

  I read The Attributes of God by A.W. Pink in 2015 and published a review about this excellent little book. It is written in seventeen chapters, or articles, which are succinct and easy to follow. Mr. Pink, as Dr. R.C. Sproul, has a gift for explaining deep theological concepts in simple ways. I am… Continue reading The Foreknowledge of God

Series on Calvinism: Part 6

The Bible says in Acts 17:10-12, “And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things… Continue reading Series on Calvinism: Part 6

Series on Calvinism: Parts 2 & 3

Three weeks ago, I shared that my husband has been teaching on the five points of Calvinism every Sunday afternoon. This is something that our church has believed since the 1970’s, and is a vital part of our history. It also so happens that currently many pastors are “taking up arms” against these biblical truths… Continue reading Series on Calvinism: Parts 2 & 3

Series on Calvinism

There is a lot of information online these days against the Doctrines of Grace, also known as Calvinism. Unfortunately, most of it is very complicated, and yes, even inaccurate. If you are interested in knowing more about this important historical Baptist truth, my husband is doing a series on it each Sunday afternoon. You can tune… Continue reading Series on Calvinism

An Interesting Observation

It’s been almost a year since I wrote THESE posts. I didn’t think they would be earth-shattering or cause any kind of stir, but I was wrong. I received several emails and private messages which corrected my error. I lost some friends on Facebook- some explained why they unfriended me, some didn’t. The original thread… Continue reading An Interesting Observation

This morning, I read these verses from Job 23: Verse 10 is a famous passage which is clearly speaking of Jehovah: But he knoweth the way that… Continue reading Everywhere You Look

My Year in Blogging {2015}

I can’t believe this year is already over. It seems like yesterday we were planning the events of 2015, which began with a visit from our friend Adam Nixon, from Italy, for our church’s Bible conference. It’s been a difficult year in some ways. In May, we lost our amazing children’s librarian, Heather Everett, to cancer. That… Continue reading My Year in Blogging {2015}

For My Critics: The Gospel

I still receive enough “unhappy” mail (“hate” is too strong a word) regarding the Doctrines of Grace that I find myself defending the Gospel in conversations that need no defense. In other words, I am starting to take the slightest negative comment on Twitter, email, or Facebook to be an all-out assault against Grace, when… Continue reading For My Critics: The Gospel
