Give us Love – Not Doctrine!

This is the mantra that is being proclaimed loud and long across this nation. Love and unity at the expense of doctrine has watered down the message so as to try and make it palatable to the goats, and it no longer feeds sheep. Yes, we must share the truth in love, but we dare […]

Stay the Course and Never Compromise!

In light of some of the recent posts and comments, I would like to share a few thoughts from my heart, but I want to do so by beginning with a story. Over five years ago, an unknown blogger started an unknown blog that would eventually become very well known with thousands of readers. The […]

Happy Reformation Day!

In honor of Reformation Day, we share a scene from “Luther”, Martin Luther’s famous speech in the Diet of Worms. Give glory to God for those godly men who have stood up throughout history to preach the true gospel.

Quotes (803)

“Should not every Christian be expected by his ninth or tenth year to know all the holy Gospels, containing as they do his very name and life? A spinner or a seamstress teaches her daughter her trade while she is young, but now even the most learned prelates and bishops do not know the Gospel. […]

The thick pollutions of thine abominable [Roman Catholic] church forbid the idea of descent from any apostle but the traitor Judas. – Charles Spurgeon 1834 – 1892

Quotes (725)

Surely that man must be in an unhealthy state of soul who can think of all that Jesus suffered, and yet cling to those sins for which that suffering was undergone. It was sin that wove the crown of thorns; it was sin that pierced our Lord’s hands, and feet, and side; it was sin […]

Quotes (707)

I charge you never to give up the old doctrine of the blood of Christ, the complete satisfaction which that atoning blood made for sin, and the impossibility of being saved except by that blood. Let nothing tempt you to believe that it is enough to look only at the example of Christ, or only […]

David Crowder’s crowded theology.

The latest pockmark to appear on the already scarred face of CCM comes from one of evangelicalism’s favorite “worship leaders,” David Crowder of the David Crowder Band. Crowder, who is the author of the contemplative-promoting book, Praise Habit (referring to the habits worn by Catholic nuns), also participated in a contemplative/emergent conference with the likes […]

Where’s that in Scripture?

When Roman Catholicism bases its bedrock of authority on an ever-changing position of leadership (just like Mormonism), it never ceases to amaze me what men can dream up. And with no real, fixed, eternal foundation by which to measure all new revelations, decrees, and doctrines, whatever the pope (or a prophet) says must be accepted […]

Quotes (698)

There is a voice in the blood of the martyrs. What does that voice say? It cries aloud from Oxford, Smithfield, and Gloucester,- “Resist to the death the Popish doctrine of the Real Presence, under the forms of the consecrated bread and wine in the Lord’s Supper!” – J. C. Ryle 1816 – 1900

The Kingdom of Christ is a kingdom of mercy, grace, and goodness. The kingdom of the Pope is a kingdom of lies and damnation! – Martin Luther 1483 – 1546

Creeping unnoticed into the Lutheran church.

This past week many Protestants (and especially Lutherans) celebrated Martin Luther’s nailing of the 95 Theses to the Wittenberg door in 1517. But all is not well in Lutherville. Someone has crept in unnoticed. Meet Nadia Bolz-Weber. The tattooed, female, pro-sodomy, emergent, foul-mouthed, feminist, Lutheran pastor who has Martin rolling in his grave. Here are […]

Error: “Everybody was Catholic Until the Reformation”

Question: Has the church of Our Lord always been “catholic?” Answer: Yes Question: Has the church of Our Lord always been “Catholic?” Answer: No Now, don’t accuse me of speaking out of both sides of my mouth. It is a matter of splitting a hair that needs to be split. There is a world of […]

Quotes (476)

Unless I am convinced by Scripture and plain reason – I do not accept the authority of the popes and councils, for they have contradicted each other – my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not recant anything for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. […]

Quotes (447)

If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier […]

The lighter side of Reformation Day

When I was just ein junger Mann I studied canon law; While Erfurt was a challenge, it was just to please my Pa. Then came the storm, the lightning struck, I called upon Saint Anne, I shaved my head, I took my vows, an Augustinian! Oh… Chorus: Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation Speak your mind […]

The only saving faith is that which casts itself on God for life or death. – Martin Luther 1483 – 1546
