Contra-Dispensationalism

A stirring fire in my heart burns against the falsities of Dispensationalism which evangelically neuters the church in its witness to natural Israel, and makes her complacent in picking up the promises that her lover made to her. Some of my readers may not know what Dispensationalism is, so for their sake I will give…

Colossians 3:1-2 and Union With Christ

Since, therefore you have been raised with Christ, set your desires on things above, where Christ in glory is seated with God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on earth. I have started to really look into the topic of Union with Christ. It has been something on the periphery of my…

On “I am of Paul”

The interpretation of what lies behind the factionalism that Paul addresses here in this opening section of 1 Corinthians is many and varied, one of the less plausible ones in my opinion is that of the Kephas group being aligned with the “Super-Apostles” of 2 Corinthians, that this group saw itself being positioned behind an…

Romans 8

Let’s walk through the passage. 1 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. The use of the word therefore tells us that Paul is building of what has come before, immediately before Paul has talked about us obeying God with our mind even if we do not with our…

Successful Evangelism

I do not think that success should be a metric of whether we are able to bully someone into professing a few statements of faith, and so the passage that I will be exegeting in regards to this work which Christ commanded us to perform before he left work shall be to do with the…

The Veil of the Letters Carved in Stone

An Exegesis of 2 Cor 3:7-18 In Opposition to the claims of the Adventists in regards to the 10 Commandments Now if the ministry of death, carved in letters on stone, came with such glory that the Israelites could not gaze at Moses’ face because of its glory, which was being brought to an end, will…
