The Hyper-Grace Controversy

Amidst the many controversies in the Christian church today, there seems to be one that clearly stands out head and shoulders above the rest, and that is the one many refer to as ‘hyper-grace’ or ‘the gospel of grace’ or ‘the grace revolution’. I’ve heard

A Response to the Marriage Equality Issue

God loves everyone, so much so that when Adam and Eve fell from his original plan, he did everything necessary to provide the way of redemption for them and their descendants (all mankind). Therefore, how one chooses to define marriage does not determine God's love for them, yet I am persuaded that

Why your every solution is found in Jesus and not in your performance or merit

(Scripture underline and bold emphasis mine)

Matthew 17:1-8 (NKJV)
1 Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; 2 and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. 3 And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. 4 Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, “ Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
5 While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “ This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Why Inclusionism & Universalism DON’T make sense

(Scripture underline and bold emphasis mine)

John 3:16 (NKJV)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

We can conclude from this portion of Scripture is that:

1. God loves everyone, not just the believer.
2. Everyone was included in His redemptive work.
3. All qualify for redemption and salvation in Jesus Christ.

Does this mean that ultimately everyone is or will automatically be saved, born-again and on their way to heaven?

What to do between the promise its manifestation

Two out of the three days relating to the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus are named and celebrated in a bigger way, namely Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday, but what about the second day? The unnamed day, the one that is representative of where we seem to spend most of our lives in?
