Weekend Edition: Guard the Pulpit


Alright, I need to talk to the Calvinists out there. Stop with the John Piper memes for five minutes and gather ’round; it’s time for a family discussion. Like you, I came to Calvinism by the mercy and grace of God. I’m one of you. I named one of my daughters […]

Calvinists, We Need to Talk





It’s not at all uncommon for me to receive unsolicited books in the mail in exchange for a kind review (rarely do I), and it’s not uncommon for heretical book sellers to send free books to churches like a drug dealer hands out free crack to get people hooked. When I […]

The following was posted on the public Facebook page of Jason Wallace, pastor of Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Magna, Utah. I thought it was astute and wanted to share it with you.   AHA Repent Abolish Human Abortion (AHA) focuses much of its energy on calling churches to repent of “abortion […]

Acccording to Indiana-area news sources, church attenders at the St. John’s the Apostle Catholic ‘Church’ got more than they anticipated when they ate the cookies brought by fellow member, Brian Jones.

Podcast: James White vs Shamoun and More






Theonomists are spiritual orphans of the twentieth century. Without a lineage predating RJ Rushdoony and being repudiated as a factious and doctrinally troublesome by every orthodox branch of Christianity, the few clingers-on to the doctrine of civil-Judaizing have always been eager to find theonomicish people in the annals of Christian history […]

Podcast: The UHaul Witnesses Prophecy



There is a certain Intelligentsia-class of evangelical leadership in America, the type and kind that wax eloquent their postulations not from local church houses, but from ivory towers of academia and twentieth-floor suites of 501(c)3’s in the Beltway. Our evangelical overlord-types quote Flannery O’Connor more than Jesus, drink Starbucks with their […]

Why Our Evangelical Leaders Need to Shut Up About Immigration

In reality, the individual is still an addict, and […]

Podcast: Ed Stetzer, Fake News vs Fake Gospel



As AHA provocateurs fomented rascality and roguery outside the G3 Conference, they summoned itinerant preacher Paul Washer to hear their propagandic pitch. It did not go well. Washer was aware of AHA, and wasn’t falling for their anti-church antics. As the protesters marched back onto convention center property, from which […]

Paul Washer Rejects, Rebukes AHA





Southern Baptists have been giving the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) approximately four million dollars a year.
