Is John MacArthur really wrong about religious freedom?

Notice the argument has not been reproduced entirely faithfully. “Opposing” religious freedom, in general, intellectually, is not the same as not supporting an earthly political freedom in a particular context where it is grossly abused (the United States). Theology is rarely a problem of bad logic, but false or biased starting points and definitions.Modern ideas … Continue reading Is John MacArthur really wrong about religious freedom?

Multiple Views on Homosexuality: Side A/Side/Side X/Side Y

There are a seemingly limitless number of options for the modern Christian on the issue of homosexuality. Instead of right/wrong, there are often choices that are one/both (side A vs. side B). Notice how technical the language is—how discerning are confessing Christians in their language?Side B does what is right, giving some credence to Scripture … Continue reading Multiple Views on Homosexuality: Side A/Side/Side X/Side Y

Review: Meant for More: In, with and Under the Ordinary by Dr. John Nunes

Many reviews try to find something to praise in a book, even if the reviewer does not like it that much. But that will not be this review.

MORAL CONSIDERATIONS REGARDING THE NEW COVID-19 VACCINES

It has been concerning that many conservative Lutherans have simply taken over the church of the anti-Christ’s official position, without comment or warning about the differing authorities Rome has for its theology and practice. This document is man’s word—and its official adoption is nothing compared to the authority of God’s inspired Word.First, Rome, does not … Continue reading MORAL CONSIDERATIONS REGARDING THE NEW COVID-19 VACCINES
