About this blog:

This site was not developed with the intention of drawing a large number of visitors using trivial methods and shallowness. There is rejoicing among the angels when even one sinner repents and believes in Jesus Christ. (Luke 15:10) If, for as long as this site exists, just one sinner is led to repentance and belief in Christ with the aid of the material presented here, the purpose of this site has been served.

      RIGHTLY DIVIDED | Episode 2: Defining and Defending Historic Evangelicalism with guest Phil Johnson

      Sunday, October 25, 2009

      These days, it seems like everyone declares themselves to be evangelical, but what does this term really mean? Does it have any historical basis? Who are some that are calling themselves evangelical that really aren't, and why is it important to defend the historic position? Is "Evangelicalism" in a worse state today spiritually than Roman Catholicism was at the time of the Reformation? These questions and more are answered in this edition of Rightly Divided with guest Phil Johnson.

      Here are the two articles from Pyromaniacs we reference during the show:

      Link 2)

      Here is the lecture Phil gave several years ago at the Shepherd's Conference on the subject of Evangelicalism.

      Phil Johnson is the director of John MacArthur's Grace to You ministry, and he also runs the blog Pyromaniacs.

      The Problem of "God's Middle Knowledge"

      Saturday, October 24, 2009

      Last night, I had the privilege of hearing Dr. James White expound on the issue of "God's middle knowledge". In short, God's middle knowledge is a concept that was formed by the Jesuits after the Reformation to counter the Reformation and is being promoted today by such apologists as William Lane Craig. Dr. White gave two sessions last night. The first was a brief look at the Biblical doctrine of God's providence. The second was an actual explanation and refutation of the doctrine of "God's middle knowledge." Both lectures are below for your edification.

      Finally, as with much anything these days, Susan could not be with us since she's still doing that basketball thing at UF. So, Dr. White and I sent a picture to cheer her up. :)


      Video of Christians Living Their "Best Life Now"

      Here are some Christians living their best life now! Oh, thank you Joel Osteen and the many wise leaders who share your insights for all of your wonderful words of encouragement! I'm so thankful to know that your words ring true throughout the world and not just in the middle to upper class suburbia where the people are able to provide the funds for you to continue doing what you do! Thanks to all the seeker-sensitive preachers who boldly take the pulpit each Sunday to make sure that brothers like the ones seen in this video have the encouragement they need to have something other than just an Americanized Consumer Gospel! (In case it's not coming through in my typing, everything written above is complete sarcasm. Watch the video below, and you'll realize why if you have even an ounce of sincerity in your soul. May our Lord protect and strengthen our persecuted brethren throughout the world, and lead us away from the Americanized Consumer "persecution" of such trite things "Christian pastors" receiving complaints about entertainment in the church. http://www.persecution.com )

      October 2009 Resource of the Month | Puritan Picks

      Sunday, October 11, 2009


      From Puritan Picks' About Us section:
      "We are Christians who have been greatly encouraged by the writings of the Puritans. We have also been greatly encouraged by the increased amount of faithful video's and films being produced to equip the saints amongst a corrupt age of post-modern "Christianity."

      We live in a time where subjectivism, feelings, experience and pragmatism is exalted over the objective truth of God's word and a day where a different gospel is being preached in many modern "churches."

      Not only have we sought to compile a list of solid educational Christian videos; we have also sought to make them more accessible. These videos range from christian living to apologetics, theology, history, and various seminary grade curicullum. Oh and lets not forget the Christian movies, children's videos and cartoons."


      Please Support Pirate Christian Radio and Help Keep it on the Inter-Air!

      Sunday, October 4, 2009

      One of the podcasts that I listen to frequently is Pirate Christian Radio's Fighting for the Faith with Chris Rosebrough. Recently, a situation arose that has required Rosebrough to let us know of a need the internet radio station is facing. Here is that need in Rosebrough's words:

      Not many people know that PCR & F4F are financially underwritten in part by a very generous supporter. Unfortunately, that generous support will come to an end in February of 2010.

      Even though we are receiving donations from our listeners, selling books and making some money from our advertising, this revenue does NOT cover all of our monthly expenses.

      Currently were are only able to operate because our generous supporter makes up the difference.

      But, as I've stated before that support is coming to an end in a few short months.

      We're not about to close up shop, pack our bags and go home. The reality is that if a small portion of our listening audience (1,000 listeners) gave $6.95 per month F4F & PCR would have all the revenue we need. And any support beyond that would then allow us to expand our operation.

      Therefore, today we're launching a new way for people to support F4F & PCR. That new way is via a recurring monthly contribution of $6.95.

      To give some perspective on that figure think of it this way.

      $6.95 can purchase 1 matinee movie ticket.

      $6.95 can purchase 1 King Sized Value Meal at Burger King

      $6.95 can purchase 2 Grande Mochas at Starbucks


      $6.95 can help produce 50 Hours of Fighting for the Faith & 168 hours of original programming on Pirate Christian Radio.

      Will you please join our crew by becoming one of the initial thousand listeners who will sign up to contribute $6.95 every month?

      If so, then click on this link.


      Thank you for your support and for listening,

      Chris Rosebrough

      Pirate Christian Radio has been instrumental in leading people out of the Emergent Church and "Seeker Sensitive" movements. It has been a wonderful tool for sharing with others the dangers of many other heresies that are now invading Christendom. Not only that, though, it has also been a great source for people to hear the Gospel truth. Rosebrough often has a segment on his show where he takes a passage of Scripture and exegetes it right before he does a "bad sermon review". Things like this are crucial because it not only shows the errors, but it also presents the Biblical answers to these errors. I recommend that you consider supporting Pirate Christian Radio for that small fee and help keep it on the inter-air.

      Below are two videos that I have featured on my Youtube account taken directly from Rosebrough's Fighting for the Faith show. This is just a taste of the material presented on the show daily.
