“When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, also the books, and above all the parchments.”  – 2 Timothy 4:13 We do not know what the books were about, and we can only form some guess as to what the parchments were.  Paul had a few books which were left, perhaps […]

Glenn Beck: “Laying the goundwork for a false gospel.”

The following quote comes from a great article by Randy Lovegreen regarding a recent episode of Glenn Beck’s T.V. program in which Beck brazenly advanced a Mormon fallacy: Beck is using his show to break the ice for Mormon theology, and promoting a worldview that supports the beliefs of his church. His hour long infomercial […]

“Paul never quoted Jesus!” (1st & 2nd Timothy, Titus)

Wrapping up the series with Paul reinforcing Christ’s teachings to his young proteges in the “Pastoral Epistles.” Hopefully this has been a helpful series, and next time you hear someone claim that they deny Paul’s writings because he “never quoted Jesus” you can show them that they are clearly wrong. 1st Timothy 1:12-13–And I thank […]

How Mormons “attain salvation.”

A Mormon named Chris left the following comment, on a previous DefCon post: Regardless of how it is interpreted, I have NEVER in 40 years of being a Mormon, met another Mormon who believes we can “earn” our way into Heaven.

Paul Washer stopping Jehovah’s Witnesses dead in their tracks.

Praying for Rose Marie.

I first met Rose Marie a few years ago. She is a 20-something nun who works a booth at the local fair. Since she travels around selling Rome’s idolatrous wares and trinkets, I hadn’t seen her since that first meeting. However, she was back in town and I saw her yesterday at this year’s fair. […]

Quotes (790)

Before the mountains were brought forth – or the earth and world were formed, from everlasting Jesus Christ was, like the Father, very God. From the beginning He was foreordained to be the Savior of sinners. He was always the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world, without whose blood there could be no […]

Quotes (789)

“As long as we use the image of our experience, of our feelings, of our answers to prayer, we shall never begin to understand what the apostle Paul means when he says, “It is no longer I who lives, but Christ lives in me.” The whole exercise of humanity’s essential reason is drawing on God […]

“Paul never quoted Jesus!” (Colossians)

Part 7, continuing the daunting task of correcting those who would rather live by their own righteousness than to admit that God is God. Colossians 1:5–…because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel, which has come to […]

Quotes (788)

Here’s the great fall out of the evangelical church: “People aren’t getting it [the gospel], let’s make it more understandable.” “I know, let’s get a neat package we could sell at Life Way. We could call it the ABCs. Surely they could understand that.” “I know, we’ll do a twelve step formula. Boy, if they […]

A few years ago the Moral Majority was the rage. The expressed goals of the group appealed to fundamentalists who were against pornography, homosexuality, and abortion and were for restoring morality, strengthening defense, and opposing communism.

Ever-reinventing and re-polishing themselves till they get it right, the LDS church is back at the drawing board once again. This news article from BNet highlights the latest product of the LDS propaganda machine: Pathetic pandering to the culture. Notice how he claims the LDS church “teaches good principles?” Since when do “good principles” save […]

Quotes (784)

People seem to forget that all Christ’s sufferings on the cross were fore-ordained. They did not come on Him by chance or accident—they were all planned, counseled, and determined from all eternity.
