This paper looks at the problem where the precedent set by that both scripture and early church history are not followed today. It shows that the local church is informal, organic, unstructured, participatory, not dominated by one man, and open to many individual gifts.
A simple and quick paper to address the panic and speculation causing a frenzy on the religious web and various books and articles regarding eschatological events supposed to occur in the next week or so. Panic not, it is all nonsense, as usual. There is not going to be a secret rapture this month. Read the paper to see why.
This paper attempts to help us see how much the impact of the world in the church is a travesty, and being the beginning of undoing the work of grace. The damage caused by emotionalism is equally dangerous. Both are accelerated by over emphasising instrumental music. It is much better to be obedient and obey the apostolic practice of a cappella singing.
It is sometimes hard, even for assiduous Bible students, to accede that tongues have ceased if they have come from a Charismatic background. This catechism seeks to reduce earlier papers to a more concise form to help those seeking information.
Catechisms have always been an important aspect of training disciples until the modern age. This lack today is the reason why so many Christians are weak, uninformed and lack faith and conviction. While there is much benefit in the old catechisms, there is always a need in every age for a revision to meet the requirements of that age. For this reason I felt the Lord's constraint to write a new catechism to help modern people.
This is a diagram that contains the different interpretations of Rev 20:1-8, which mentions a 1,000-year (millennium) reign of saints with Christ before the end of all things.
This paper, really a book, has taken a considerable amount of time and effort. It seeks to give, in simple and bullet point terms, a history of Israel up to the Bar Khoba revolt. I believe this to be a very useful tool for Bible students. Many do not know the difference between Hosea and Hoshea, Jehu and Joab, Joab and Joash or Amasa and Amasai. As well as being a potted history, with multiple tables and definitions, it also serves as an abbreviated Bible encyclopaedia. I wish I had been given something like this when I was a young Christian. May it be of use.
The New Testament model for the local church.
This is a paper that simply sets out the acute differences between apostolic tongues and the false tongues of the modern Charismatic Movement. It does this by using a clear tabular analysis. I trust this will be of use.
A strong critique of David Engelsma's book 'Bound To Join'. I have long admired Engelsma as being one of the best Calvinistic teachers in the world; many of his works have helped me in the last 20 years. However, his denomination has become more and more exclusive and now he (and others associated with him) make cultic statements and give extremely bad counsel. This could not be ignored and, sadly, I have had to critique this awful work.
In this paper some detail problems with Reformed theology is identified.
The latest serious error from Chalke was passed on to me a while ago. Normally I would ignore acting on this and just file away the evidence, but this required combating. There is an assault on the word of God going on today, from widely esteemed people, and this must be condemned. Therefore, this paper exposes Chalke's errors and shows why he holds them. The subject matter is gay partnerships, championed by Chalke.
This paper has involved hundreds of hours of work and strives to be a thorough introduction to church history. The first edition was sent out to those on my e-mail address list in 2013. This edition has dozens of new pages and some updates. I believe this to be a thorough resource, in a concise fashion, of all you need to know. There is even a section on philosophy. Some sections form thorough summaries of major events in their own right, such as the Westminster Assembly or the development of the English Bible. I trust it will be of use.
A paper showing that mere assent is not faith and that what is needed is a real meeting with God that results in divine grace to believe and repent. I fear that many church goers do not truly know God having only an intellectual acceptance of Christianity or an emotional response to church going. My hope is that such folk would read this and go on to seek God Biblically.
There are many preachers who claim to offer you success in five easy steps or some such nonsense. There is no easy and simple way to spiritual success because it is all about character, and that comes through experience (often suffering) based on knowledge. This paper seeks to lay out essential Biblical matters that form the basis of a powerful testimony learned by hard experience. May it be of use.
This is a strident warning to the modern failing church, a church that pats itself on the back and parties, despite the fact that there are fewer and fewer Christians in the country and paganism reigns. The church is fiddling while Rome burns. This is a repetition of the failings of Israel, which God warned through the ministry of Isaiah. Such warning are pertinent today, as this paper reveals.
A paper explaining why seeking to change this world to be more Christian, through political action, is not only pointless but is against God's will. The believer is not of this world and must set his mind upon his heavenly kingdom. Neither should he use fleshly weapons to try to achieve worldly ends. Many Christians seem to be totally fooled in this matter. Our job is to preach the Gospel, build the church, give a good testimony to the Lord and to do good to all. The church would be much better off if we all did this.
Since there is still much confusion in the church about God's law, this is a very simple paper to explain it concisely. I have written on this many times but this is the simplest presentation I can manage.
A paper written to defend a wrongly criticised friend. The argument may give the reader helpful understanding about the matter (and debate) of law and grace.
Having had requests for this, here is a paper on the teaching of John Piper. There are grave problems with what this man preaches. Be warned.
This paper helps in understanding that the concoction that is ‘Jewish Roots’ is an evil, compromised and idolatrous religion that is neither Christianity nor Judaism but heresy to both.
A paper on the matter of both Reformed and Charismatic Dominionism. This is a growing problem, which in the US is now dominating the presidential candidates. It is something to be very wary of. The extreme Charismatic form is nothing but blasphemy and rebellion under the cover of supposedly seeking God's glory. In reality it is giving glory to men. These issues are serious - be warned.
This paper takes a look at a formula established by the early church at the Council of Chalcedon in 451, which explains the relationship of the two natures of Christ.
This is my best attempt at a simple introduction to explaining all you need to know about the manuscripts that form our Bible versions. It is highly important but much misunderstood. Books on this matter are often too technical, boring and hard to follow because there are many very technical issues involved. Other sources are often far too simplistic, inflammatory and erroneous. I have tried to avoid all these pitfalls and explain what you need to know. I also show that the LXX is probably late, i.e. post 2nd century and that the Sinaiticus was written in the 19th century. This is explosive. In summary, I prove that the Byzantine 'family' of manuscripts is the genuine NT text.
A paper on textual matters that was compiled through a process of sourcing data from material made available by others.
A paper that does what it says. It gives a simple explanation of Biblical eschatology and a summary of the various views. I trust it will be helpful.
Do Christians follow the Law of Moses or the Law of Christ?
Salvation comes through grace to those who do not deserve it. God also gives rewards to those who do not deserve it. It is the overwhelming teaching of scripture. This is an explanation on the matter from a different angle as concise as possible compared to a detailed paper called "Rewards in Biblical Theology" on the same subject.
A paper on a fundamental and vital subject, and yet one which is almost universally misunderstood. Worse still, even systematic theologies are incomplete or mistaken in their treatment of it. Unless we understand this doctrine properly we will fail to grow in grace; that is how important a matter it is. In my view, unless we understand the correlation between the tenses of sanctification and the nature of man we will fail to grasp this doctrine. This paper explains that connection.
This paper has been rushed out since I think it may be important and useful. It gives the bare bones of church history, useful for further study. I may review this paper at a later time and embellish it.
This is a very concise paper explaining God's law. This is much misunderstood by people on both sides of the fence, antinomians and legalists. I trust this helps you to understand the truth.
This paper is a much needed explanation of the situation in, and mindset of, North Korea, as well as a short history. This is rarely, if ever, presented in the media; in fact the media constantly presents a one-sided, exaggerated, and often falsified view. You need to read this to get a balanced view.
This paper deals with an important but neglected subject. Indeed, it is something that is rarely mentioned at all. Since all true Christians will be affected by this, it requires some exposition.
A paper on an important biblical illustration given to us according to which we ought to draw near to God.
Here is the very subjective and outspoken advice of an older believer to younger ones. It concerns that which I believe to be important, even if I cut across normal counseling, which is too often politically correct church platitudes. Though some of you may be older than me, I believe the advice is still sound.
This paper arose from giving advice to a friend shopping for books. It suggests some tests to identify those books which may help you.
This paper examines whether God created humanoid life-forms on other planets. This question arises so frequently with all the science fiction pot-boilers on the television these days. It comes as no surprise.
This is a paper encouraging the Christian to consider biblical texts that give us a very simple and clear understanding of the end, and instructions how we should behave. There is no need to make it more complicated. All other obscure passages on the end must comply with clear teaching.
An apologetic for the historic subset of Christianity in Britain from the very earliest times. The current war against Christianity by politicians and the elite is really an attack on Britain itself.
This was supposed to be just a few notes made while reading the work by Svendsen. However, the amount of errors contained in the book resulted in this necessary critique.
This is a very important paper. It was written for seekers, but it will benefit believers. It seeks to be a full theological / apologetic explanation of the Gospel that will answer the questions of enquirers.
This is an exposé of a very serious false teacher and a very unpleasant person. I know that some of you have friends who follow this man because you have asked for my help previously. Here is a simple summary of some of his errors and an example of his vile defamation found in one video of a speech. I then analyse and comment on the points he makes and the character he manifests. Though much could be written about this man, and I have done so years ago, this short paper is all that you really need; he stands condemned by his own words and attitude. This should help you have ammunition to assist your friends.
This paper reminds of the importance to stop pretending that everything is fine and the problems in the ecclesiastical world are all out there with somebody else. Sure Charismatic churches have many problems but Reformed churches have almost as many and this needs repenting of.
The only sane way to interpret scripture is to start with a clear understanding of the Biblical doctrine of salvation, and then interpret the difficult verses in their context and in the light of sound theology.
Some believe that anger is always sinful, that it is never right to be angry. These tend to be the same people who do not believe that God is ever angry. However, there is a righteous anger which Christians should hold.
This paper on Anti-Semitism addresses vital issues that no one is talking about in the current hysteria whipped up by the elite thought police for political ends. It is important to analyse this objectively.
This is a paper on a terrible subject; apostasy. This needs to be addressed today because we are seeing people, and especially church leaders, apostatise at a terrible rate. I have tried to expound this properly to give a good foundation on the matter. I trust that the conclusion shows that this is not an entirely negative subject. We must individually persevere and encourage each other to love and good works.
In order to explain the technicalities about the doctrine of apostasy, this paper analyses what it is, what words are used in Scripture and how other doctrines are affected by it. I trust this will answer any questions.
This is a clear exposition of a verse to show that the Charismatic practice of apostles ruling the church is entirely false. There is also an appendix on the matter of submission to leaders.
We are justified by faith, but this is no excuse to sin. Whilst there is no condemnation in terms of final judgement to wrath for Christians, those who sin and do not deal with it are condemned in terms of receiving fatherly discipline from God.
A very important paper on current Charismatic Antinomianism. In discussing this the paper gives a thorough explanation of practical sanctification as well. The problem of Antinomian teaching is treated polemically by evaluating the serious errors of Terry Virgo, head of New Frontiers, on grace. This teaching, for which Terry Virgo is famous, is mistaken in theology and exegesis and results from both Higher Life perfectionist views and some mistakes made by Martyn Lloyd-Jones. The result is Antinomianism, plain and simple. TV's essential principle is that Christians are never guilty. This is just unbiblical and dangerous and results in licentiousness.
This paper shows how fasting is just another method of turning people’s attention away from Christ, focusing upon their own efforts and denying the truth. It also touches on aspects such as the heretical origins of modern fasting and a practical consideration.
This is a detailed examination of data regarding when the tribulation begins. It is my contention that it is well underway but the most extreme aspects have not yet begun. This is important in understanding how certain Bible passages affect us. It is possible to completely misconstrue texts due to misunderstanding where we are in history.
Concise Church Biographies
God expects us to glorify him with good works and these works are tested at the end, resulting in us receiving rewards of suffering loss. God is so great that beyond a free salvation he provides us the stimulation of heavenly rewards that we also do not deserve.
A paper that I was asked to write about the TV drama on the Bible recently aired. I trust it will be of use.
This paper is a bit out of the ordinary in that it examines the current austerity politics which this country (and the EU) is immersed in. It shows that not only are these cuts unrighteous, in that they devastate the poor, weak and vulnerable, but they are contrary to acknowledged economic theory and empirical practice. They will not work but will create an implosion in Britain's economy and wreck the social infrastructure of society as well. As such, these polices are wicked and obnoxious to God.
A short paper showing that the bible is true and that it is the word of God.
An exhortation about expecting and preparing for the return of the Lord Jesus.
What constitutes wrong fellowship? There is very little practical teaching on this and yet the repercussions are very serious.
Believers are to serve God with their whole person. God commands this; men often fail. Those of us that want to serve God faithfully must learn how to do this in a balanced manner.
Despite many books on this subject this work is very different, looking at many aspects of the issue and at the repercussions of the Biblical doctrine (not the Charismatic perversion of it).
This is an exposition based on Paul's words in 1 Thessalonians that show the essential characteristics of being a genuine Christian. Sadly, these are so often absent today.
This paper is a complete, basic discipling course. I have tried to succinctly cover all the things I would like to have understood when I was a young convert. I am appalled at how little Christians understand even after many years. This covers the Gospel, Bible study, devotions, essential doctrine, practical issues, heresies, sects and a summary of church history. Thus it is useful for mature believers as an aide memoire, as well as a manual to work through with young converts.
This paper seeks to discover, among other facts, whether freemasonry is an innocent social and charitable institution or something much more sinister with secret agendas.
This simple paper explains the important truth that it is knowledge of God and his decree that is crucial for bearing fruit; not some mystical experience or work of the flesh. There is also a useful summary of good doctrinal books to help students.
A paper that is self explanatory. However, some people just do not grasp this at all. This issue must be grasped and acted upon or we ruin our testimony.
I have rushed to have this paper out on charlatan Wyatt's fantastic claims in order to help confused folk out there. I recently heard of a godly pastor who allowed speakers into his church to present all this garbage and give away free books filled with lies to his whole congregation. We must be more careful to avoid deceit; these are perilous times.
This is a practical paper which is designed as instruction with exercises to train people to study the Bible. It is intended to be used in conjunction with personal tuition, with the goal of helping people learn how to understand and teach scripture.
A paper that looks at a subject rarely spoken about, how the earth and the cosmos fit together and what will happen at the end. It is an exciting subject that results in even greater worship to God for saving us. I trust it will be of use.
This is a simple analysis of Biblical doxologies. These need no significant comment as they are worthy of perusal as they stand.
Paul taught that all members are involved in ministry and even the ministry of the word is much more than just an intellectual sermon. It is impossible to have a biblical view of church ministry without emphasising the need for every member to participate fully.
This short study on worship in the church focuses upon the clear apostolic teaching in the NT letters. To understand worship, we must first get to grips with the apostolic content, and then apply these principles to the relevant OT scriptures.
The predominant model of church leader today is the manager; the biblical model is the father.
This paper explains the Bible's teaching on prophecy. I also examine the Charismatic errors involved in their excuse for prophecy. There are two general issues with prophecy today: 1) the claim that formal, authoritative, OT-type prophecy still exists (it does not); 2) denying that there is any kind of genuine prophecy in the church in history.
Blessedness only exists in Christ. He is the blessed one and only those in him are truly blessed. The so-called 'blessings' of the wicked are just passing moments of pleasure, fleeting vapours that have no substance.
This paper is necessary in this confused world. It explains the origins of tattoos and body-piercings and explains why they are unbiblical practices.
A paper that gives the correct exposition of a much debated passage of Scripture which even many good expositors have got completely wrong. It explains what the 'branches' for burning really means. This is not a terribly obscure passage, it is a very important one for the modern church.
This paper explains the background to the Brexit withdrawal agreement. I show why it is undemocratic and treasonous. I also explain how the global elite is working through this process. Just more proof that the UK government is not working for the interests of the people. However, I also explain why Christians should not be perturbed or shaken by this, but be peaceful.
This is a simple study on a vital issue. In the light of many Christians talking about taking up arms, I show that the teaching of the Bible is unequivocally that Christians cannot kill. I explain what buying a sword in Luke 22:36 means. It is not to attack people, even in self defence.
The riots of 2011 was a new type of uprising and a low-point in the destruction of British society. We need to understand that God is sovereign over this. This paper looks at all the aspects, both secular and Christian. This is a divine warning.
A short history of inspirational (Charismatic) movements in history showing how they prefigured much of what is going on in the Charismatic Movement today. The difference is that these were tested, confronted and condemned in history by godly church leaders.
This paper seeks to show the balance between a Biblical submission to the sovereignty of God and the need for activity in doing God’s will and resistance to satanic temptation.
This paper looks at all the scripture passages which are usually marshalled to make the case that demons can mate with human women.
This is a disputed subject which many conservatives get completely wrong. We need spiritual gifts, but not the Charismatic variety.
Here are some very serious scriptures which seldom get attention. They challenge the modern superficiality of Christians who do little good, feel free to sin, and float from one emotional meeting to another.
An analysis, for the Bible student, of the different types of commentary, with some recommendations.
All God's purposes centre in Christ and have the objective of putting Christ first. Even the structure of the universe is based upon the centrality of Christ. How much more should the church, the body of Christ, be focused upon putting Christ first?
This paper exposes the error of churches that use Heb 6 as a basis for discipling courses, common in Charismatic churches. The list here does not refer to New Covenant foundational principles but to the Old Covenant. The Greek text proves this, which I analyse. Yet another Charismatic mistake.
I recently wrote a critique of a book by Mark Dunman on Christian Zionism which was well received by some of my readers. I gave Mark the opportunity to respond and welcomed a personal debate. He refrained from debate but wrote a response. There is no point in uploading this response as it is tedious, meandering and filled with errors of interpretation and theology. However, there are arguments in my reply to this which may be of some use to readers.
Many members of modern churches have no idea what real Christianity is. Instead of following Christ, their lifestyles manifest the opposite of Christ's character. This paper explains the need to maintain a godly testimony and shows some areas where this is expressed in society. Christianity is an active religion, not a passive thing experienced in a glorified social club.
To achieve the work of redemption the Son became a man in time and, therefore, had two natures in one person. There is no confusion or admixture in these.
The Son subsisted in human nature as truly as he did in the divine nature. Christ thought, willed and purposed as God and as man. This is a second paper seeking to oppose the heresy that Christ did not have a genuine human nature.
A final paper break down in combating the errors which denies that Christ has two natures and which claims that the flesh of Christ was not a normal human nature.
This is a practical paper that examines the situation that most of us face today, what do we do in the light of church apostasy? The normal advice given by leaders is far too shallow and fails to take into account God's prior will. Your holiness is God's prime concern and that must undergird your decisions.
Time and again I find that modern Christians have very little working knowledge of church history. This is a significant failing. Knowledge of this subject is invaluable and a helpful preparation to spot and deal with heresies. This is a paper that gives some useful books to help you start on a quest to learn more. There are recommendations at the end for a cheap way to start.
This paper is necessitated by the lies and scaremongering that fill the media. It explains why we need to leave the EU fast and exposes the falsehood of the fear stories with facts and professional quotes. Do not be dismayed by 'Project Fear'.
This paper addresses a very serious and current issue. Most people are unaware that the Green political movement was established and is controlled by the global elite as part of their plans for global tyranny. As oil power controlled the 20th century, sustainable development and Green policies (especially regarding carbon dioxide) will control this century. Be aware.
This paper is a different sort of topic, but socially important. It evaluates the historical development of super hero comics and shows how modern social conditioning has changed the plots and characters. Today, the content is conditioning kids, and also adults through film versions, to swallow liberal elite dogma, in particular, to accept more violence, anger and hatred against dissent. Super heroes are no longer representatives of Christian righteousness and champions of the American dream, but purveyors of liberal, anti-Christian, pagan morality.
This is excerpted from the paper ‘A simple critique of Dominionism’.
Why I believe the NKJV to be the best choice today.
This is a succinct, but still lengthy I'm afraid, summary of world religions to help seeking people. The central portion is a tabular comparison of the major religions contrasted with Christianity. I have tried to make this as useful as possible without filling hundreds of pages.
A tabular comparison of the old and new covenants showing that all the features of the old (including all that Israel in the flesh stands for and all its worship system) are now obsolete and finished. The reality is now in Christ.
A very simple summary of the main positions of the doctrine of the last things.
This is a condensation of a larger paper ‘What about Tongue Speaking’ to aid those with less time to study detailed arguments.
The book of Revelation gives us some very concise theological statements of great benefit.
A paper explaining why we must confront evil around us, particulalrly in rulers. This is a spiritual requirement of God's law.
This paper shows that when one examines the cold hard facts it is clear that the basic suppositions of evolutionary theory hold no water. In the past the theory has been supported by falsities, lies, mistakes and even fraud.
This is a paper sent to a website which is promoting evangelistic partnerships in Sussex (UK). It is blatant Arminianism and appears to be associated with the Elim church. Clearly the host of that website does not seem to realise that this Gospel is false, unbiblical and completely contradictory to both God's character and his word. Some of you are in this catchment area in Sussex. You need to be aware of the basis of this initiative if your pastor makes alliances.
An examination of cultural movements that are widely accepted but which are utter deceptions. It shows some aspects of life which even Christians accept glibly, but which are false or dangerous.
A synopsis of the theological systems behind current UK church streams.
This is a paper identifying some of the problems with the current house church movement with a special focus on demonstrating the multiple heresies of Frank Viola, probably the current chief representative of this movement in America. People who are interested in joining or forming house churches need to understand that there are many variants out there and most are problematic. The urgent need today is for small churches based upon the truth, and these are indeed hard to find. Knowing the errors of self-promoting men like Viola will help us to beware.
A sobering paper on just how bad the modern church is and why. Every few years I write on the downgrade of the church and each time the situation is worse. We need to consider the radical, Biblical strategies that some of us have been proclaiming for decades.
It's time for the Lord's people to put the church back into the Lord's hands. He will build it his way if man stops meddling.
This paper consists of salient features of the Daniel's visions, with simple explanation of world history culminating in the manifestation of the kingdom of Christ, ruling over all with His saints.
A paper on the doctrines such as individual eschatology, death, the intermediate state, punishment of sin, the resurrection of the dead, the final judgment and the final state. Theologians differ markedly in some of these subjects but the important object is to determine what is the most Biblical explanation of these matters which affect us all crucially.
This booklet warns Christians that when the external, extreme, the superficial and supernatural are holding so much fascination, to keep a careful guard over their inner life.
This paper is a devotional piece showing the immense privilege of possessing the Word of God. It shows how it reveals God's mind, through Christ, and how important it is to study it carefully.
This paper confronts the heresies contained in a mass of papers sent to me anonymously through the post. It gives me the opportunity to explain why they are heresy and why the doctrines of grace are vital. This paper is an unusual defence of grace and even explains the doctrine of Traducianism, which is much neglected. I believe this to be a very useful help to those confused by Arminian attacks.
The richness of the diverse terms for the church are intended to show the great variety of the blessings that God has conferred upon his chosen people.
This paper contains notes hastily put together, with the intention of answering the question whether dinosaurs lived contemporaneously with humans.
Discipleship is a subject often hijacked by authoritarian church leaders as a tool to dominate people; as such it involves much human wisdom rather than Biblical principles. This paper draws out some discipling principles of Jesus in his High Priestly prayer. I trust this will be of use to pastors and others.
This is an analysis and history of the use of drums. It shows what the purposes of drums are in society and discusses their relevance within church worship. Needless to say, along with other musical instruments, there is no place for drums. Indeed, drums are the very last thing a church should consider introducing.
There is no indication in scripture of a double will in God.
This is patently unbiblical. God will not act outside his character. This concept is obviously preposterous and untrue.
There is a growing problem with believers centring their Christian lives on Israel and all things Jewish. This is a deception to distract people from focusing upon Christ.
Is the Lord's Supper a full meal to constantly remind God to bring about the Messianic wedding banquet?
The controlling power in a man's salvation is not man himself but God alone.
The Bible is always being attacked to undermine its divine authority. Many of these attacks are so false that they are based upon old arguments that were dispelled years ago. However, some attacks by sceptics are more thorough and more difficult. Some have not been answered properly. When a young believer comes across very severe attacks, written in academic language with much technical detail, they can upset their faith. Some 'Christians have fallen away after confronting such works. This paper is written to urge you not to fear such attacks, and to give an answer to a very strong attack on a very difficult passage to understand in Ezekiel. If this can be answered, so can all the other alleged discrepancies. May it be of use.
Any Christian who does not understand this is likely to be wasting his life.
A paper dealing with the subject of dreams. There is a huge amount of nonsense written and taught about dreams which is all around you, particularly in Charismatic streams. This sort of speculative, old covenant stuff will do you no good at all. My approach here is to be as Biblical as possible and to give a New Covenant evaluation of the matter. I trust it will be of use.
A paper seeking to make simple a very difficult subject; viz. the heresies regarding Christ in the first 5 centuries. I have tried to explain this complex issue as simply as possible by using only bullet points and diagrams. The diagrams found in the Appendices will prove most helpful. Indeed, the first alone makes the whole thing easy to understand as an overview. I believe that this doctrine is very important and I show how many modern sects and cults are demonstrating these errors to this very day. There are Charismatics and Pentecostals in the UK right now who are modalists, for instance. Understanding these errors helps us to avoid them and rescue others already ensnared.
This paper examines the similarities and the differences between these two types (figures) of the world. I then explain what Babylon is. You cannot understand Revelation or eschatology without seeing this.
An exposition of the story of Ehud and its threefold fulfilment and representation, most specifically the lesson we can draw from this for discipleship.
This is an important paper explaining the Biblical role of elders and differentiating them from deacons. Sadly few churches understand the principles taught in this essay, which is one reason why many churches are in a mess.
Eliakim is a clear type of Christ, though this is ignored by many commentators. There is great value in studying this brief description of the king's servant.
This is a brief paper that demonstrate what the Bible has warned about for thousands of years, that the restraint has indeed been taken off Satan and he is growing in his ability to control the world through evil individuals and corrupt governments. It is written for friends who are not Christians, but are concerned about the current developments in the world.
This is a letter in response to questions about how far we can engage with worldly authorities. There are many mistakes made in this area which ruin Christian lives. Our job is to do God's will and do it with wisdom.
This long paper is really a small book. It is a dictionary of errors found in Reformed thinking today. This is a series of evaluations of the current heresies found amongst people claiming to be Calvinists. These are quite short summaries with simple bullet points. It will help readers understand the various 'isms' that they will come across every day. If you do not know about these errors, you may well fall for them. Knowing what the error is forms a vital defence against tripping up. Countless thousands have already fallen for these errors and many lives have been ruined by them. Despite this, I know of no other work that seeks to evaluate them in a small compass which enables easy cross-referencing. I believe this work to be very useful indeed. I wish I had known something like this decades ago.
The theological errors that came out of Saumur have given rise to many misconceptions currently in modern evangelicalism.
If ever there was a person whose life screamed of God's absolute, sovereign choice it is Esau. This is why the apostles focussed critical arguments on him.
A diagram containing biblical texts about the end.
This paper demonstrates that everything for the Christian, such as to systematically assemble dogma from scripture texts, collate it and analyse it, should lead to a focus on Christ.
This paper shows how the usual attacks on the NKJV are riddled with falsity and errors. Be assured, the NKJV is a good translation.
A sample of scriptures to demonstrate the point.
This is a paper that gives you much neglected history showing that the long term purpose of the EU founders was, and still is, a federal superstate, a United States of Europe (their term). There are various other sections giving you details on related matters of importance, including a portion on the basis of UK sovereignty in the Constitution. You need to know this information in order to be able to vote with integrity and in an informed manner. Others will try to scare you with prognostications about the future, mostly lies. This paper gives you historical facts about what has already happened. You should judge on the basis of facts, not scaremongering.
It occurred to me that busy people cannot easily find the time to read a 50 page document. Therefore, I have summarised the points made in the previous paper in this concise version a quarter of the size. I think it still adequately covers most areas.
This is a paper that shows you what Charismatic global revivalists think, how they behave and what they claim. I then show what Jesus and the apostles actually teach, which is the direct opposite. Those who teach the opposite of Jesus are following a satanic strategy. No more need be said.
This is an encyclopaedia of ways to identify false teachers in the church, of which there are many. Normally two or three characteristics will be sufficient to get a good idea, but this paper gives you the A to Z lowdown on how to spot dangerous elements in the churches. Never has this information been more necessary than today.
A paper showing how important the inner life of the believer is and how externalism rules in many churches today. Externalism produces dead works; communing with Christ leads to spiritual fruit. I trust it will be helpful.

This is a practical paper aimed to give useful advice on dealing with the administrative ramifications of a bereavement. Many people face this every year but few prepare for it. These facts will help you both prepare and deal with the effects.
This paper is necessary to combat the multitude of lies being spouted by the media and establishment supporting remaining in the EU. The hard truth is that the EU has done no good to Britain whatsoever. The claims otherwise are propaganda lies. I examine several areas to show how bad being in the EU has been. In economic terms the damage is huge.
Every action we pursue must have God in mind and we must take great care in the way we behave in the body. Therefore, it is essential that believers are faithful and true, especially as regards dealings with the brethren. There is no place for unfounded attack.
This comment is necessary to warn people about the indoctrination that is well underway in society and what you must do to see past it and test what is true. To just trust the newspaper that you have read for decades, or the TV news you support, is a fatal flaw. They are now full of lies and propaganda. Be wise; be discerning; test all things; understand that deception is everywhere and is part of a spiritual battle. Be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.
This booklet helps the Christian be aware, not only of the growing worldliness of the Evangelical church in western nations, but worse, the gradual paganizing of it’s meetings. Many of the charismatic errors noted here have direct parallels in occult religions, shamanism and mysticism. The church is becoming like false religions.
There has never been an era when lying propaganda was used so heavily on civilian populations. You are literally being conditioned by various systems around you to tow the establishment line; without this the elite could not get away with their policies. Jesus warned us about the extent of deception in the world, especially at the end and Christians should be wiser than the world in this matter. Sadly, so often that is not the case and many modern 'Christians' are even more deceived than the world, especially by Charismatic deceit. I explain this and give multiple examples of how the world governments have lied to you to achieve a certain goal. Don't accept the lies that are currently being perpetrated today, especially as war threatens.
It is shocking what passes for the Gospel in many modern churches, particularly Charismatic churches. We must take great care to ensure that the message we proclaim is Scriptural and honours God.
A very short and simple paper that gives you the major NT texts regarding deception and false teachers. We could find more, and there are also texts in the OT, but these should suffice. These passages show why it is important to highlight error and its practitioners in order to protect the flock of God.
A simple, one-page paper expressing Biblical teaching on this matter.
This paper shows that the common use of the term 'Far Right' to demonise critics of the Left is fallacious. I explain the relevant terms and warn that Christians will be thus labelled. There are also two appendices, one of which is a commentary on the New Zealand shooting, which is being widely misrepresented as being perpetrated by a Far Right gunman. In fact he is a crazy Leftist.
This is an exposition of an important passage in Ephesians that few interpret correctly. It shows the vital importance of every member in the local church and how every member ministry (mutual edification) equips the saints and promotes growth. The reason why the churches are in a mess is because this is nowhere practised.
The best deceptions have a morsel of truth and, like scorpions, their biggest threat is at first hidden from victims. This describes feminism. While early achievements, such as equal pay for equal work, were righteous, the movement soon revealed its true colours - which represent an attack on God himself and a perversion of his law. Many sincere women have been led into appalling error, sin and wickedness by this movement, including being exposed to paganism and witchcraft. Despite this little is being said by church leaders, in the UK at least. You need to read this paper and be educated what feminism is really all about. It is pernicious.
A paper that goes against the grain of popular thinking (what a shock). It regards the proportion of the elect to the reprobate. This has many ramifications.
This is the substance of a study I have given one Sunday. It seeks to give the proper interpretation of a passage often completely misunderstood and turned into a legalistic ritual with no relevance. In fact, Jesus' actions in John 13 are incredibly important and must be understood properly.
This is one of the key passages used by Arminians to teach the old lie that God merely chooses in eternity the men who will believe the Gospel at some point in time; i.e. that there is no sovereign predestination to faith.
This is a paper highlighting a number of matters that we should give God thanks for and which are often ignored or forgotten. We ought to be the most advanced saints in history; sadly we are far from that.
This is a paper on Fracking. It is an incredibly important subject since it can directly impact you and your family for the worse. Indeed, it is not extreme to say that some residents near Fracking sites have been hospitalised and killed by the effects while others can no longer drink their water. Be warned.
This booklet shows that Fuller was a severely compromised theologian; his life being a better witness than his teaching. Under no circumstances should believers subscribe to his heterodox views.
The subtitle of this paper is 'Ten things to pray for in your growth in grace', and that sums up the purpose of the article. The most important matter before us today is to learn how to fully please God and maintain a good testimony. Sadly that is greatly misunderstood in many places and bad teaching leads many churches into apostasy where God is not pleased at all. I trust that this exposition of Paul's desire for disciples will lead you into truth that will release you into a better testimony.
A reader asked me to explain this subject, so here is its history and content. 'Fundamentalist' is not a useful term for Biblical believers, though the movement did some good things.
A paper on the law. This is a massively confused subject which nearly everybody gets wrong, some on one side, some on the opposite side. Here is a short paper (shorter than my 102 page book on the subject) which seeks to get to the heart of the matter and to centre everyone's attention on Christ and not something else.
A simple paper explaining what the Bible teaches about Ghosts. It needs little comment.
This paper emerged as a result of an impromptu study one Sunday. It demonstrates that the modern (chiefly Charismatic) idea of a great end-time church revival (even to the point where the church controls the world) is an absolute lie. Holding such an unbiblical hope denudes faith and leads to dead works.
This is a paper that does not simply expound the doctrine of God's attribute of love but explains why a concentration upon this attribute above all others is a big mistake. It fails to appreciate what God's word says his chief attribute actually is. Worse, a focus upon love has led to multiple errors of doctrine and practice and has caused Arminianism to overtake Calvinism in the last 100 years.
This paper is chiefly Scriptures that pertain to the responsibilities of governments and rulers. It is sobering to say the least. Those in power need to read this and fear. Voters need to see how to assess candidates for office.
A paper outlining the breakdown of society in Britain which evidences that God is judging this country.
This is a paper that explains the vital foundation of election in the attributes of God and the expression of salvation. God does not love everyone and does not have mercy on everyone. His grace only extends to his people, the elect. This, however, must be distinguished from God's providence which is to the whole earth of necessity in preserving the elect.
God has favoured England with rich blessing and protection in his grace for 2000 years, a situation the nation is now throwing away every day. It is important for believers to understand their heritage and their responsibility.
This is a paper that explains how God's power is centred in the church on earth in these days. It is not a flamboyant expression of power but it is a great power. Christians need to understand what this power is and where it is centred.
This is a diagram showing the outworking of God's plan and purpose of salvation and the culmination in the perfection of the saints at the Second Coming.
This is a paper regarding an issue that has flared up in the media some time ago and which opens up a Biblical doctrine.
It seems that the modern church will try anything - no matter how wacky - to swell its numbers, apart from submitting to what God commands of us in His word.
I have interrupted my work on two important papers again in order to meet a pressing issue. You are aware of the current argument made by false Jewish Root teachers regarding the Greek background to systematic theology. This argument is based upon historical lies and dangerous false statements, such as demeaning intellectual rigour. This paper thoroughly demonstrates that the background to the NT and apostolic writings is not Jewish but Greek. Furthermore, even the background to NT Judaism was Hellenistic in many respects, even in Palestine. Most of the then Jews spoke Aramaic in Palestine and Greek elsewhere and used a Greek OT. Jewish Root teachers not only teach heresy regarding Scriptural doctrine, but they also teach outright historical lies. Be warned.
The Gospel proclaimed by the people at 'Healing on the Streets' is unbiblical and false. The Biblical Gospel proclaims Christ as the only mediator between God and man, the one who redeems God's people and the only Saviour and Lord.
This has great impact in all sorts of church situations, yet there is much confusion about it. Many erroneous Higher Life ideas underlie widespread evangelical notions about holiness. While there are some good aspects, the general drift of the teaching is dangerous.
While Charismatics will claim that their root is God’s word and God’s Spirit, here we look at what the precursors of Charismatic theology and practice really are.
This is a historical paper showing the developments of Pelagianism and Semi-Pelagianism. Not many people understand this but it is vital in order to know the roots of what is happening today. You will be hard pressed to find such an amount of information in a concise format. Hopefully it will help you understand difficult subjects that get reviewed very rarely. Over and over again we see that Semi-Pelagianism (e.g. Arminianism) leads into further errors, such as denial of the Trinity, denial of the atonement and denial of Scripture. This is why many previously Arminian modern groups are now becoming more liberal. We must understand history or we repeat its mistakes.
This paper touches on man’s continual attempt to bring homogeneity into the work of God. Homogeneity is the activity to make everything or everyone the same. God works differently.
Many commonly accepted characteristics of modern church life have no sanction whatsoever from the Bible and some even repudiate the specific teaching of the Lord Jesus.
This paper shows how many of the idiosyncratic features of Charismatic ministry and church meetings are based on Old Covenant Jewish religion, which is now abolished by Christ’s New Covenant.
This is the 5th in the Law series found under the Questions section of this website as well. The good news of salvation is worked out first as promise in the Old Covenant, then as fulfilment in the New. The cross is a clear dividing line between these. Reformed theology concludes that all covenants are merely the outworking of the single Covenant of Grace. We disagree.
This is the 4th in the Law series found under the Questions section of this website as well. Law is holy, but does not save. Salvation is in Christ, therefore man cannot be justified by keeping the law outside of Christ.
A UK news report came out in October 2012 making reference to ecumenism. This is a paper showing where ecumenism leads.
After some questions I thought it useful to give a full summary of the Eastern Orthodox Church. This is useful since many Protestants (mainly disenchanted Charismatics) have joined it in recent decades and folk should know what is involved. This is a thorough examination of doctrine and practice which shows that it is far from Biblical and seriously heretical.
This is a very practical, and yet theological, paper explaining how to be prepared for trials and what to do in them. I need add nothing else. Sadly, few that I meet understand how to do this.
There is much more to learning the truth than just knowing God and studying Scripture. It is also more than formally studying doctrine. There are a number of features involved in gaining the truth and these all have to do with personal character and a deeper relationship with God. Do this and you will know the truth.
This paper is also an exposition of Paul's warnings in 1 Thessalonians regarding people that preach a false gospel. It shows the typical traits of false gospel preachers, which are still copied today. I also show what the true Gospel is.
This is something we have to do if we are going to minister to people effectively. Far too often, Christians just accept that a person is a Christian, on very weak grounds, and then continually offer them comfort, when what they need is to see that they need a Saviour.
A short examination of Hunt's latest lies about Calvin.
This paper exposes the hypocrisy that is prevalent in the mainstream media today. The reason for this is following an indoctrination programme to manipulate most of society to acquiesce to global elite strategies. Thus a certain feature in one area is highlighted when the same feature in another is completely ignored. For example: the deaths of 113 civilians in Syria is falsely blamed on Assad and trumpeted across the world but the deaths of many thousands of civilians, including many Christians, by US and UK air-strikes in Iraq and Syria are completely ignored. Be warned. There is no fairness or balance in journalism today in the media.
An article explaining more about our testimony. Few today understand this.
God has arrested you for a purpose. He chose you in eternity for a specific reason, and not just out of mercy. It is vital that we grow in knowledge of God and manifest his character on Earth.
A paper demonstrating that many natural processes of reproduction provide a fitting illustration of how the church is supposed to grow, by splitting of the home church and multiplication of new churches. There is good precedent for this sort of study since Jesus did exactly the same in using features of the natural world to illustrate his teaching on this. Such processes are the opposite of the way the modern church seeks to grow by agglomeration into a centralised large unit.
The importance of understanding our union with Christ.
In response to a request for help, here is a paper critiquing yet another baseless attack on Calvin. As usual the attack parrots the same old red herrings, misrepresentation and barefaced lies. This paper exposes the deceit and also gives a succinct introduction to Calvin's biography.
As part of my responsibility to inform and warn, this paper exposes the serious issues with the influenza vaccine. It gives hard scientific evidence for questioning the vaccine, including analysis of what is in the different sorts. The conclusion is serious; the establishment does not want people helped by this but harmed.
Do you think that your government is benevolent and cares for everyone in society? This paper shows that governments are in collusion with God's enemy and foster all sorts of wicked projects that only insane people would condone. They even sponsor programmes that harm their own families. This is part of the wickedness of man coming to fulness that I explain in other papers. Here I simply outline a number of insane government policies that are wicked and just nuts!
There is no apostolic command, model or sanction for instrumental music in the church; who are we to include such pagan and worldly elements in church meetings?
This paper helps the believer see that Calvinism exalts God and Arminianism exalts man. Calvinism honours the Bible, Arminianism fails to do justice to the tenor of scripture and many clear texts.
An important doctrine for which early Christians gave their lives to the service of the gospel.
The historical argument between Arminians and Calvinists chiefly rests upon certain Bible verses that appear to state contradictory things about God.
Amyraldism who hold this view, was once considered a rogue theological development in the 17th century and was combated by consistent Calvinist teachers just as much as Arminianism, but it is now accepted by most Reformed people and virtually all evangelicals. This should not be.
An antidote to the Charismatic notion that heaven is one big party - the idea that encourages wild behaviour in worship meetings. Such wild behaviour is at best an expression of the flesh and at worst an expression of demonic inspired mysticism.
This paper explains a clear difference the apostles see in role and function, arising from the differences in the creation order between men and women.
This short paper explains why eschatological justification is an error. It also works as a short and simple description of the doctrine of justification.
This paper demonstrates how the Bible could not be more unequivocal on the subject; both the Old and New Testaments are united in condemning homosexual practices.
The sermon in not commanded in the New Testament for use as the means of edification in the church, and there is no precedent for it as the focus of fellowship life. It is contrary to the New Testament methods of building up the body, which is by mutual edification.
For all those busy people out there, here is my summary of Islam. While there are many introductions to Islam available, very many are filled with falsehoods (Taqiyya) to deliberately lead you astray. In addition, even many Muslims have no idea what Muhammad taught what Islam is all about. My précis gets to the root of the matter in a few pages (perhaps a bit more than five minutes). There is enough information here, with evidences, for you to hold your own in any debate.
This is a book of great importance. It is a complete survey of Islam that supplies information in one source that will be rarely seen elsewhere. It expounds all aspects of Islam from theology, to ethics, to politics, to history, fully explaining why most people have a very wrong idea about Islam; this includes many supposed Muslims. I also explain what is going on in societies where Muslims have gained a foothold and show why they are doing this (following Muhammad) and what the expected outcome is. The facts that I expose, with as little passion as possible, are truly appalling. Everyone needs to understand these facts, especially Christians.
This paper is a condemnation of the situation in Britain today. This is the result of a series of anti-Christian governments that are intent on destroying Christian mores and social structures in this country. It stands condemned by God's law.
This paper shows how Jeremiah's prophecies to apostate Judah speak directly to the modern church situation.
In the light of a continuing barrage of Jewish Root propaganda, this is a very straightforward paper explaining why it is absolutely unbiblical and dangerous. The chief reason is that it takes the Christian's attention off Christ and places it upon a sinful nation. This error fails to see even the simplest NT apostolic comments on the matter.
This paper seeks to refute the unbiblical claims of Jewish Root teachers. We seek to show, very simply, what Scripture states on the key issues involved. Only the minimal comment is given for clarity. In doing so we seek to show that Jewish Root teaching is utterly unbiblical and damaging to the Lord’s people.
This paper shows that the believer is to follow Christ and not Moses, to walk in the Spirit and not try to objectively obey Mosaic Law codes.
A paper showing how wrong modern church leadership is and how far it differs from that of the Lord Jesus, Paul and great church leaders in history. There will also be much to learn from sections on suffering and money.
Sound historical examples of proper practices for the church showing that the admonitions by people like myself are not unreasonable quirks, but are supported by the great and the good in history.
An amended letter sent to a well known leader who claims to be Calvinistic. I sought to help him see the truth that he is actually an Amyraldian, following the modern American New Calvinism, which is a corrupt form and not really Calvinistic at all. This is, therefore, a useful summary of the argument in concise terms. It also has an appendix comprising a large number of quotes from Calvin himself and a number of historic Calvinist theologians. This makes it additionally useful.
This is a subject that is rarely discussed but one that forms the background to our hope. We should consider this. This is thus an exposition of what life is like in the new world. I trust it will be an encouragement.
The life of the believer is completely unlike the life of men, and failing to live in this life - by putting on the new man - has enormous consequences for the Christian.
This paper shouldn't be necessary for evangelicals, but circumstances have provoked it. No human being knows the time, date or season of the end. Striving to discover this is folly. Claiming that you have discovered it is both hubris and a serious sin. This paper gives the Biblical teaching on this matter and gives historical examples. However, Christians should be wise about world events, especially in three areas, and may have a sense about the approach of the end.
A simple, straightforward paper on the limits we can go to in confrontations about truth.
How to grow in grace, fight sin and escape legalism. This is such an important and practical matter - yet how many believers really understand this? How many are stuck in dead legalistic works that have no value?
How involved should we be with missions and events?
This is the best in-depth biography I can come up with for this obscure and deliberately hidden character. Few have even heard of him and yet he was the most important catalyst in the foundations of both Calvary Chapel and The Vineyard churches, two of the biggest Charismatic denominations in the world, and the two that spawned Christian rock music and modern Charismatic worship, as well as the Signs and Wonders movement. He was a tragic personality and his input into the modern Charismatic church scene needs to be understood. May this be of use.
A paper on a deep theological matter that is very practical. Loving God in Scripture is straightforward and down to earth. Yet many today elevate it to some mystical, metaphysical nonsense that is really just emotionalism. In a nutshell, lovers of God are those who obey his commandments. This paper shows you how.
Many evangelicals know little or nothing about Lutheranism, even though it stands at the beginning of Protestantism. This paper explains the history and the theology. The Lutheranism of today is not like the Lutheranism of Martin Luther.
The modern church has become materialistic in its working, damaging Biblical faith and Christian growth. So many today fail to see that the Christian life is a spiritual pilgrimage on Earth. This is a disaster of huge proportions!
What is the purpose of election? Why are we here? This paper answers these questions by explaining the believer's ministry unto the Lord, our chief purpose in life.
A biblical critique of the Charismatic apologetic for their pursuit of miracles. I show why this pursuit is actually unbiblical and why miracles generally occur. I do not know why no one has evaluated the matter in this way before (as far as I am aware). I believe it is conclusive and obvious.
A paper explaining the theology behind a popular modern form of antinomianism. It is very important to understand this.
This booklet shows how the emphasis on receiving a Celtic spirituality, a Celtic attitude, a Celtic cultural influence, including the artefacts and symbolism that go with it is completely unbiblical. Celtic culture contained a great deal that was occult, pagan and superstitious. The great danger in these methods is attracting people who are inclined to these pagan techniques and are not genuinely converted. Christ is our focus.
A simple tabular presentation of the contrasts.
There are many different methodologies that claim to be successful in local church evangelism, but do any of these have any Biblical credit? What does the Bible teach about man's involvement in evangelism?
You may have already seen the introduction to this paper. The rest explains what is going on in the world today and how the satanic purpose is being worked out through the elite, which involves people devoted to money and power seeking control over the world more and more. Your politicians fall into this bracket and, with a few exceptions, they are a deeply corrupt bunch utterly committed to the elite aims, and thus ultimately to Satan. I give some specific examples of this in terms of strategy, history and individuals. The purpose is to inform you and to warn you to keep your hands clean by avoiding their plans, and doing certain spiritual and practical things.
A paper on this person who has managed to establish a huge presence on the Internet and YouTube. If you don't know about her now, you will soon. Hence this warning.
This is the second part of facts regarding the Apollo missions. This one concerns the Van Allen Belt and solar flares.
The moon walk films are so obviously fake that they resemble 1950s cheap science fiction movies. All part of the deluding of the masses. You need to be aware of the basic flaws which cannot be satisfactorily explained.
Here I analyse what is really going on with modern policies to increase multiculturalism in western societies. I explain God's purpose with nations and the importance of divinely established boundaries. Multiculturalism is just another facet of the global elite's attack on Christianity and the attempt to mongrelise nations to make them more amenable to despotism.
Mutual edification involves the active participation of every body member; the church is dysfunctional if its meetings are dominated by one person.
This paper seeks thoroughly to take apart the chief teaching of Charismatics. This would also serve as a useful summary of Christian doctrine. There are many critiques of Charismania, but few seek to investigate the range of doctrines found here.
Imaginative speculation is everywhere these days, and sadly in the church. One rampant notion is that of giant offspring of angels / aliens and humans, usually called Nephilim (wrongly). All sorts of utter nonsense is being spouted about this idea, with people even making it the key to the future. One man has even professed to believe in satyrs!!! That these teachers are supposed Christian leaders is a disgrace. It is all rubbish as I explain in this paper.
This is an important paper that shows the devastating effects of New Calvinism, which is just one of the many recent strategies of the enemy to bring doctrinal corruption and worldliness into the church. Many are being fooled by this disparate movement and Reformed leaders are not adequately confronting this.
God is always good to his people but sadly very few understand what this means. To some it was a life of persecution and a martyrs death. To others it was decades of imprisonment. The key is to understand the divine perspective and the purpose of God. Without knowing this you will be demoralised by what life throws at you. Even worse is to believe the lies of heretics who claim that bad things do not happen to God's elect.
In response to one questioner, and to cover other future comments, this paper fully explains my argument that Christians must do good to all but not get involved in worldly politics. The argument is very clear. I also look at some objections, such as the slavery issue.
This passage, in the centre of Revelation, is a précis of the message of the book; it is the keynote of the prophecy.
Without doubt this is just another modern deception seeking to attach to itself some credibility by claiming the support of the father of the post-deluvian earth. It will lead - like all other deceptions - to hell, since it offers a false salvation.
This paper briefly outlines the key occult teachings and practice that have emerged in recent decades. It is important for Christ’s disciples to understand the roots of these matters.
This paper clearly shows that it was not the Bible teacher and church leader John Darby that initiated the predominant ideas of Dispensationalism, rather, it was an occult influenced, young Christian girl who provided the first spark as a result of a vision. This was fanned into a flame by an aberrant charismatic ‘Christian’ cult, originally led by Edward Irving.
This is a technical paper explaining the derivation and origins of everyday words, many of which have surprising pagan origins.
This paper is an encouragement for us to ensure that the hope of the Gospel, the Second Coming of the Lord and all it entails, should be taught effectively and used as a principal means of constant exhortation.
The Lord has constrained me to write a suitable paper to end the year with. This paper explains what Zion is, both technically and spiritually. It is an important subject that has much to say to the Lord's people.
Many hold the opinion that certain aspects of God's kingdom are fully available today. In fact, Scripture is very clear that these claims are false and these items (such as continual physical healing) are only realised after the return of the Lord in glory.
This is often ignored in systematics and it is rarely expounded in any depth. More unusual is that most evangelical scholars have opted to deny absolute pacifism and accept violence in certain circumstances. I show that this is a big mistake.
This is a paper explaining what the glory of God is, what it is not, and how we share in it. Something much misunderstood today.
Concise Church Biographies
A diagram that puts the beginning of Peter's first letter (1 Peter 1:2-9) into focus. It is a good summary of Salvation.
This takes apart a common saying. Those who use this saying betray their lack of understanding about pilgrimage and thus the basis of their whole walk in Christ. It is commonly heard in dominionist Charismatic settings.
This paper is about what the godly man is supposed to do in the face of modern politics.
A paper that emerged from a talk I gave last week on something quite different. It focuses upon the ordinariness of the Christian life. Godliness is not something mystical but down to earth, yet done to the glory of God in reverence. True worship is doing ordinary things but in honour of God according to his Spirit.
This is an analysis of the latest fad (aberration) to emerge from the apostate church. It is a means of encouraging mysticism and results in non-prayer. Beware.
The three charts here reveal God's sovereignty in predestination and election in a simple way.
While the church flounders on all sides there has rarely been a time when there has been so much talk about - and yearning for - revival. Is hoping for revival a good thing and should we continue in praying for it?
This is a paper analysing and refuting the doctrine of Preparationism. Sadly this was common amongst the Puritans and subsequently has been popularised amongst modern Baptists. This doctrine is not Biblical, not Reformed and is very damaging.
A simple diagram following on from "cultural movements that deceive nations", summarising the developments which prepare for a global government. We need to be ever watchful, as the Lord commanded.
This paper is a basic list of principles extracted from 'Bible Study Techniques'. It is important to understand matters such as that the OT illustrates and prepares the way for the NT, and the NT explains and expounds the OT.
This is a comment on the modern church apostasy as expounded in Psalm 74. Desecration of God's temple is nothing new and the principles of prayer and action are the same. We can learn from Asaph.
This doctrine continues to be denied by many, ignored in social culture and eroded from the justice system. However, it is a divine principle and one which is vital to the doctrine of God and the blessing of salvation. We ignore this subject at our peril.
A challenge to Charismatics to examine the practices of their movement in the light of scripture. This is not intended to bash Charismatics, but as a genuine guide to truth.
This is a paper containing a number of intractable questions for evolutionists.
A look at some verses in the early chapters of the book of Revelation that give us clear reasons to praise God.
A simple but important paper on how the Gospel is to be received and how it is to be applied. Needless to say, this is being ignored almost everywhere today.
One page short summaries of recent cosmological theories.
The typological illustrations of my thesis about the three tenses of sanctification, as revealed in the Tabernacle symbolism. While we must not major on the types, nor stretch them too far, they are useful as a picture to open up our understanding.
A study on the occurrences of tri-unity in Scripture and the universe. These are reflections of the operations of the Trinity. On the final day when our eyes are opened, we will see many more examples of this.
There can never be a blessed satisfaction for the saint in a world full of sin, iniquity, pain and suffering, yet the believer can know deep contentment, whatever his circumstances, because he has peace with God.
Superficial study can lead to all sorts of errors and extreme behaviour is often the result of taking a verse out of context or without understanding the analogy of Scripture (the sum of Biblical teaching). This is a particular case in point. Perfectionists tell us that we must always be rejoicing at every moment, but this is clearly Biblically wrong as well as being impossible on this earth. They also tell us that anxiety is a sin; yet Paul affirmed that he was sometimes anxious for good reasons. Similarly, some state that we must never be angry or complain; yet God does both these things. What the Bible teaches is righteousness; we must do what is right and good; we do what is appropriate and godly That may include weeping (as Jesus wept) as well as rejoicing. This paper investigates this matter fully.
This paper is very important because it is necessary to understand where the main features of Charismatic churches come from. We need to know what the root systems underlying Charismatic things really are.
An introduction to information that has been produced in order to help people who begin to realise that there are serious problems with their church being unbiblical.
A thorough review of a book about Israel written by someone local to us. While being somewhat softer than some recent Jewish Root propaganda, it is still filled with errors and unbiblical ideas. My review, therefore, has the benefit of being a commentary on many of the Christian Zionist, Messianic Christian, errors that are being propounded today. Most of them are based upon severely twisted Biblical interpretation leading to theological error. The review will be useful as a summary of Messianic Christian heresies and why the movement is novel, modern and dangerous.
Scripture tells us that our works will be judged and appraised. Our wasted efforts will be destroyed, good works done in the power of the Spirit will be rewarded. This paper intends to examine this subject and provide an encouragement for saints to glorify God in the body.
There are clear texts which state that God gives rewards for faithful obedience, for our work. This has nothing to do with any personal merit contributing towards salvation; such an idea is preposterous. It is the theological implications of the new man that undergirds the Biblical teaching on rewards, and it is this which I want to expound here.
A simple paper that is actually quite important. It deals with an issue that is misunderstood by many, both heretics and even some in the church. Understanding this issue will lead to a successful Christian walk and a lack of understanding it explains why so many fall.
I was asked for my thoughts on Romans 11 in connection with the lies of Jewish Root teaching. I supplied several papers where I have dealt with the key parts of that chapter but then considered that a thorough exegesis of the whole chapter might be useful. Consequently, I have produced a paper with my interpretation of this chapter which is in accordance with the best historic commentators on the Greek text. It absolutely disproves all the heretical contentions of Jewish Root teachers.
This paper examines from a Biblical perspective the sound that is masquerading as the songs of angels, which many Christians find exciting, to determine whether it could in fact be true.
This paper explains how inner salvation is achieved by faith and repentance, rather than both being the fruit of a regenerated heart. Amongst other important truths, it also clarifies that man is tripartite in essential nature, which helps in understanding the salvation of the soul.
This paper explains that Christians are set apart by the truth in Christ. If we do not have the truth then we are not sanctified in Christ.
My government's position on this is illegal and shameful. It is part of an attempt to ramp up war with Russia. Here I give you some important facts not mentioned by the media. It is a scandalous propaganda progamme.
These Truth Bombs regarding the release of Satan are important. They help to show what the purpose is behind what is going on in society today. I have other papers that have discussed this and yet others that I hope to upload soon. You need to understand the satanic strategy that undergirds globalism today.
This book is perhaps one of my most important works. It seeks to be a vital resource for believers. It is a systematic theology but centred on Bible verses and not comment. Of necessity there are some comments for explanatory purposes, but these are limited; the vast proportion is Bible texts.
The Bible is God's inspired word to us, giving us the very thoughts of God. It is the basis of all our spiritual education and I cannot emphasise enough how important it is for us to study it earnestly. Sadly, much that passes as teaching in modern churches is nothing short of a tragedy.
This paper helps us realise that looking to Jewish forms is but trusting in something fleshly and earthly – Paul demands that we rejoice in Christ and ignore such fleshly items.
This is an important paper that analyses how we can be deceived and what we must do to avoid it. Sadly the churches are filled with people and leaders that never did this and have fallen into apostasy. I trust that it will help you lead an effective testimony.
A paper dealing with a simple subject but with a powerful practical application. It is something universally ignored, despite commands by the Lord and his apostles. It is one reason why the world and the church are going insane (literally, as you will see). Give this to your church leader, light the blue touch paper, and withdraw several feet.
A straightforward paper explaining what Calvinism is. This is not restricted to the doctrine of salvation but shows how God is sovereign over everything. This concise paper has little exposition, above a simple explanation of each doctrine, but there are many proof texts to affirm the point. I believe this to be a very useful little article.
Some practical help in witnessing. Relevant texts are listed along with the logical steps of conversion to aid the disciple in presenting the Gospel.
A paper that seeks to provide a large number of reasons to believe in a young earth and a young cosmos. I have tried to keep these observations as simple as possible, but have given multiple references for further research. I trust this will help Christians becoming more confident in defending the faith.
A simple paper giving a few killer arguments to destroy evolutionary principles. Just knowing one or two of these arguments will help you to defend the faith.
A collection of simple questions (usually sent to me) with straightforward answers and proof texts.
This is a simplified set of definitions but it really helps to get a summary view of the various Christological heresies.
Three simple papers summarising the essential points of eschatological issues.
Two simple truth bomb papers giving simplified definitions of theological subjects.
This sort of oblique observation can help to contextualise the end times.
This is a paper dealing with the Charismatic notion of generational sins; that is the idea that you can be in bondage and suffering as a result of an ancestor's sin. This doctrine is a damaging heresy which needs to be stamped on as it can even affect believers who abhor other Charismatic teachings. Those who are chronically ill are particularly vulnerable to this.
These truth bombs explain why the current establishment narrative about white entitlement and black slavery is a fraud. The truth is that all ethnic types have experienced slavery and throughout history most slaves were White or Eurasian. In fact, for centuries most slaves in America were White poor people.
Christians, being citizens of a heavenly city, should not be formally tied to any political party, which are worldly at best. This paper looks at Socialism and compares it with Christianity since many Socialists link the two. I also cover key elements of right wing policies, with an appendix on definitions. May it be of use.
This is a booklet about commands, precedents and principles by which we can establish how a New Testament church should be established, develop and function.
This paper is simply giving observations on some news stories, some of which were reported and others which were hidden. They point to a possible crescendo in world affairs.
This paper is just a simple table with no commentary at all. It demonstrates the differences between America and North Korea in connection with which country is a global aggressor.
A very important, serious and disturbing paper but one that really needs to be read. It concerns the extent and cover-up of paedophilia at high levels of power and how this fits in with the Biblical revelation of events at the end. I have avoided really sordid and harrowing stories, though there are some details that may still disturb. What is shocking, and what you need to understand, is the depth of corruption that runs throughout society up to the very highest levels. Christians may well have voted for appalling paedophiles in the past. Whilst this investigation is restricted to the UK, there is much of interest to my friends in foreign lands where similar child abuse is just as rife. In some places it is worse. Only pass this paper on wisely to friends. It poses a threat to many in the establishment.
A few months before this paper, I sent out my first paper on the subject. Shortly after I sent out that paper to my circle, the bubble of state secrecy began to burst wide open. The amount of data is absolutely enormous, going back at least fifty years. However, here I try to group the information together as best as I can.
More Brexit betrayal. This is something approaching an exclusive. PM Theresa May has agreed to subordinate Britain's armed forces, defence, and foreign policy to the EU as a bargaining chip in the Brexit negotiations. Britain is already legally entwined in multiple EU defence policies which the Withdrawal Agreement confirms. Our armed forces are already signed up to be part of the EU army - and this has occurred after the Brexit vote. Just more proof that national governments do not represent the people but globalist policy makers.
This is yet another ecumenical initiative in my area in the UK and one which affects many people that I know personally. Ecumenical initiatives are wrong and unbiblical. I believe that few realise how damaging they are to spiritual health.
This paper should not need to have been written. It shows that foul language is wrong and a sin and no Christians should ever use perverse speech. This subject is fundamental to repentance and ought to be understood without exhortation. Sadly the times are evil.
This is an expansion of a footnote in my paper on Lutheranism. In two pages it gives a concise breakdown of synergistic systems.
This paper explains how man-made global warming is not supported by the best science and a growing, large number of scientists are discrediting it.
This paper is important because the news reporting in the mainstream media [MSM] is full of lies and distortion. In fact the general picture is the opposite of the truth. It is important for believers to understand what's involved since your government's policies are resulting in the deaths of Christians, just as it did in Iraq, which the MSM never talks about. Your taxes are being used to hurt the church. You should be appraised of the truth when determining your political support.
Here follows a few Truth Bombs regarding the Talmud and the Kaballa, Jewish texts that undergird the thinking of many in the global elite.
This is a paper which strives to expose the underlying formulations and fashions that undergird many churches. These have been around throughout history but are today appearing all over the place as the churches become more apostate. Those which exhibit several of these tendencies are the most heretical. This is a new way of evaluating what churches actually are. I trust it will be helpful.
This paper was occasioned by correspondence with a writer and missionary who is highly thought of in evangelical and academic circles, whom I was shocked to find supported the error of territorial spirits. Usually this is limited to Charismatic extremists. In consequence I saw that a short paper demonstrating the fallacies of it was necessary. May it be of use.
I wasn't going to write on this but, as I am being asked for my comments, it makes sense to put my thoughts down in one developed paper. Thus I have given my analysis, for what it is worth.
Simple scientific facts proving that the moon landings were fake.
Society is being conditioned to have zero tolerance against thought and speech that is not socially acceptable, that is, what is permitted by the establishment. This is now leading to increasing acts of violence to dissenters. There is only one answer to this - Biblical Christianity.
This paper seeks to provide a balanced presentation to both types of Christians who on the one side ignore scriptures about the Antichrist and on the other side who become too preoccupied with it.
A paper explaining why NT doctrine is vital to understanding Scripture and the will of God. This is a matter which is downplayed, ignored or avoided by many groups these days, with the result of falling to serious errors. Here I show why apostolic doctrine is fundamental.
'Psalms Only' is a position that means well and strives to be Biblical, but in the end actually becomes unbiblical. It fails to see the fulness of the changes effected by the New Covenant (a typical problem with Covenant Theology).
This has been a controversial matter for centuries, and yet it ought to be simple.
The main points of both views contrasted in a table.
This paper touches of the binding of Satan being a symbolic picture of a heavenly truth to emphasise the sovereignty of God in protecting the church and directing history to his ends. This binding is an effect of the cross of Christ to control Satan’s activities so that his oppressive tactics are restrained from completely destroying the church.
This paper helps the Christian to learn from past mistakes and errors that the earlier house church movement made.
One of the key reasons for the church's downfall is the Charismatic Movement, not because it focuses on spiritual gifts (actually congregational participation in gifts is minimal) but because it is a Trojan Horse.
This is a long paper fully documenting the utter failure of the Charismatic Movement, especially in the UK. The effects of this failure are dramatic, extensive and shattering. God's people need to be cognisant of these things. Charismatic leaders need to hang their head in shame. I trust this will be a useful resource as a summary of Charismatic errors with specific examples.
Is God's purpose for the church for there to be a return to biblical church life at the end-times so that the church will be a complete testimony to the glory of God?
Categorically all references to church meetings in the New Testament are in houses and nowhere else.
This is an educational paper based upon a series of box diagrams regarding doctrine through church history. This demonstrates the problems that began early and then degenerated in modern times into full-blown collapse. This is not an exhaustive evaluation of all doctrines, but rather a simple overview. Even so, it comprises a dozen pages in landscape format. Notice the importance of the degeneration of the doctrine of Scripture. I believe this will give a good synopsis of the history of doctrines and encourage interested readers to look up subjects that interest them for further information.
This is a severe warning about the coming economic collapse. I know this is scary but it is not scaremongering. It is a warning to prepare for it sensibly. Most Christians have little clue about this and yet it will directly affect them. Being in the tribulation means there are difficult times ahead. We must deal with this faithfully.
This paper is a mere taster on the subject of divine community and the vital necessity for Christians to work this principle out on earth. It is the basis of the church being a family, not an organisation, something that is almost universally ignored.
This paper looks at whether the Bible view us as sinners or redeemed before regeneration.
This is a really practical paper addressing some key issues in our walk with God. It deals with the nature of crises and why we go through them. It gives practical advice and Scriptural teaching regarding various sorts of crises and what to do.
This is an expansion of an appendix to my paper on Islam regarding the Crusades. Since it is such an inflammatory issue today, we need to give more attention to the facts. I have tried to give a complete assessment of the causes, exploits, problems and benefits of the Crusades in as simple a manner as possible to enable you to silence critics and stifle some of the extremely foolish rhetoric.
This paper shows how the wickedness of national leaders ruins the nation.
This is a paper that will certainly challenge some readers; in fact it might even anger a few. Nevertheless, it is written as a plain explanation of what Scripture teaches and this is demonstrated in clear arguments from plain texts. I urge folk to read this with an open and prayerful mind, seeking wisdom from the Father of Lights (Jm 1:17). What must be avoided is trying to force an atheistic, secular worldview on to Biblical teaching by twisting plain meanings of texts. This is what Liberals do. However uncomfortable, only good can come from faithfully upholding Scripture, even if it makes us look like fools to the world. We do this to defend creationism against evolution; this subject is no different. I often experience enemy opposition as I write papers (usually those I consider as important), but this was especially noticed during this one.
Many believers have rejected that the flood was global. There is great danger in downgrading even a few verses of Genesis.
A challenging article to understand more about putting off the old nature as regards thought patterns that work against God's will.
I had to put my other studies on hold in order to write this paper on the risks facing all our loved ones from mobile phones, especially young children. The seriousness of this cannot be overstated.
As the Brexit vote continues to send shock waves through the establishment, this paper shows how the referendum has exposed the denial of democracy in the parliamentary system, and particularly in the political party system. It is time for a change.
This is hugely important, eye-opening and quite shocking. It shows the levels of deceitful control at all levels of society by the controlling elite. This is especially true in religion and politics.
If the Christian life is not legalistic, then how do we explain the many texts which seem to imply that it is? We need to look carefully at this subject and come to some conclusions.
A paper on the practical application of the doctrine of Christian suffering.
I have needed to write a paper on this subject for some time as it affects many friends. It needs little explanation; it shows how deception must always be confronted and never left to flourish. There are many practical pieces of advice here for specific situations.
This paper explains the Biblical focus on God as Trinity. It shows how many denomination fail to honour this focus. It also explains historic heresies about God and how modern sects repeat these heresies.
This is a book on the Doctrines of Grace. I have tried to write the best possible summary that I can and yet cover all the aspects in necessary depth. There are numerous diagrams, tables, quotes, appendices and several excursus papers. For example, there is a detailed history of the attacks on the doctrines of grace as well as an explanation of the champions of sovereign grace. I also cover many important subjects that are usually ignored. I have been tempted to continue developing this as ideas come to mind, but have decided to stop here before it becomes a tome. This is a reasonable and accessible book which seeks to give the student all he needs to know on the matter. May God be glorified.
The sovereignty of God in salvation and life is clearly manifested in Jesus' High Priestly prayer. The Doctrines of Grace are openly demonstrated and run throughout all Christ's petitions to the Father.
This is a simple paper that really consists of Scriptures and little argument. It covers a very important topic, but one that is practically denied by many supposed Christians today, leading to them believe a range of heresies. This doctrine must be strongly defended.
A concise analysis of what it means to be elect and how this subject is approached in the Old and New Testaments. It also dispels some heretical ideas.
Perhaps the worst lie that is being foisted on the Lord's people is that of works righteousness. Yet when dressed up in the right garb and presented by trustworthy preachers, even this lie will find toleration amongst many.
People sometimes write to me regarding an article that seems to be proof that Arminius has been misrepresented by horrible Calvinists and that he was really an irenic moderate. Well, we could write about his life, showing his devious personality. We could write about his history, showing his close links with the Jesuits. We could write about his effects and the terrible behaviour of the Remonstrants (his followers) at the Synod of Dort. Instead, this paper is just about the chief principle of Arminians (man's free will) and what Scripture says about it. This paper simply demonstrates that Arminianism is shockingly unscriptural and that all Arminians are very deceived people to fail to see this. Our issue with Arminians is what God says, not what any Calvinist says.
This paper exposes the massive contradiction taught by the establishment. It is impossible to believe in evolution and Gay issues; they are completely at odds with each other. This is so obvious it is amazing that no one in the media highlights this. It is time to demand honesty and a change in education policy.
Believing in the eternal Sonship of Christ is a fundamental part of believing in the Son as our saviour. If we fail to honour this truth, we stand condemned.
This is a self explanatory paper on the EU in the Truth Bomb series.
A change from theological issues due to a current problem - drought. The difficulties Britain is currently facing with water supply has very little to do with a lack of water but a great deal to do with mismanagement and corporate greed. Britain has faced drought every few years from time immemorial; this is nothing new. What is a bigger problem is the continual raping of natural resources by water companies with no care for long-term capital investment in infrastructure, to say nothing of bad practices. This paper demonstrates this and shows that it is an offence to God. It has finally dawned on the government that this is a problem and white papers are currently considering substantial reforms, though sadly not re-nationalisation. This paper should help you get hold of some key facts.
An important paper regarding the build up to the antichristian world empire that is going on right now. We need to be aware and warned so that our service to God is effective.
This paper is about the suggestion that man is the prime cause or that a change of action by mankind can change the world’s climate. This is foolishness of course. Man’s contribution is tiny in comparison with planetary forces. The suggestion that man can change climate is hubris beyond common sense. However, the current political demand for urgent action against global warming have detrimental repercussions, and these repercussions are generally not good.
This is a paper showing that the position of evolutionists is far from being based upon scientific certainty but is, rather, a faith based position that trusts in poor factual foundations. In fact, the Creationist position is far more in accordance with known scientific facts. I have tried to source most quotes and statements from secular sources.
This paper alludes to many problems in the church today being mainly caused by both church leaders and members no longer have any concern for the fear of the Lord.
This paper touches on the many supposed Christians that have no desire to even read, let alone study, God’s word, and how it should not surprise us that there is an absence of the fear of the Lord.
This is an extremely important subject that is not given sufficient attention today. Indeed, there are multiple errors regarding this prevalent in the churches today. It is vital that we affirm all that God's word says about the nature and glory of Christ. It is the very bedrock of our salvation.
This paper shows that there were seven holy convocations or gatherings but that only three of these were feasts or festivals. As such, they instruct us about the three great aspects of the salvation planned and purposed by God for us: the cross (the kingdom purchased), the kingdom conceived and the kingdom completed.
The central focus of Scripture is Christ and, in particular, His atoning work. The Lord’s Supper is primarily to remind us of the cross; its purpose is neither to remind the Lord to return nor to set our focus on the wedding celebration of the Lamb.
Despite the fact that there is no sincere offer in the Gospel to reprobates - that God does not love all or offer salvation to all but only to the elect - certain teachers keep raising the same errors, often using disingenuous methods.
This paper seeks to explain the truth about recent events in Syria and how Iran is being goaded into creating an excuse for war. This war is a key part of Israeli strategy for the Middle East. The media seems to care little about continual Israeli air-strikes in Syria for years, while Trump has behaved disgracefully regarding the Iran deal. These are dangerous times.
This is a very important paper which demonstrates the rank heresy of Arminians from their own words. It has to be seen to be believed. Most of these quotes are from the original Remonstrants who followed Arminius, but some more modern quotes are also given. I have arranged these under several heads, supplying Bible verses to show how contrary to Scripture they are. The overall picture is that the god of Arminians is not the God of the Bible but a human construct. Arminianism is idolatry.
Having recently met with some old friends, some of whom are religious Anglicans, it behooved me to write a paper explaining the Biblical Gospel for religious people who think that they are Christians but are not evangelical. Essentially, such religious folk do not know what Christ said a Christian is; and only his definition is worth anything. Thus this paper seeks to clarify the Biblical Gospel.
Although not directly applicable to my overseas friends, this paper still has many important and relevant points. For British people, this paper describes how the current government is committed to a vicious plan to destroy the NHS. This plan involves lies, intrigue, fraud as well as public statements. You need to understand this in order to be a responsible citizen. Already many thousands of people have no GP and both London and Birmingham surgeries are taking no new patients. Both areas are affecting my own family negatively. Soon this will affect many more people as GPs are leaving the job thoroughly fed up with the stress and extra unpaid work. In time UK healthcare will be back to Dickensian standards. Already some areas are being denied necessary operations, treatment or equipment. What is worse is that the politicians organising this degeneration are profiting from being on the boards of the private companies taking NHS work. You need to see the data supplied here. The facts speak for themselves. It is an act of great wickedness.
There is a popular idea that there was a gradual restoration of lost truths from the Reformation onwards, culminating in the fulness of truth and power, as in the days of the apostles, now found in the Charismatic church. This is a lie.
This paper contains my observations following the referendum vote after Brexit. A great deal has yet to occur and we cannot be complacent.
This is an explanation of how geo-politics has reversed in recent years. I also show why this happened and who the key players in the corruption of world politics are. One key issue is the attack on Christianity that underlies this.
This paper seeks to explain analytically and concisely the key reversals of truth that have plagued the church in the last 150 years or so. While much more could be written, if I had time and strength, this is sufficient for most people. It shows the terrible cancer of demonic lies taken wholesale into the churches today. I include proponents, sources, teachings, practices, errors and Biblical texts. There is also a couple of separate papers at the end, one of which destroys the Charismatic proposal of a gradual restoration of Charismatic truth to the church. While it is a long read with a great deal of detailed information, it is sectioned to be able to be used as a reference work.
Historic Calvinism, both in its accepted standards and as expressed by its main theologians, denies the free offer; indeed, it would recognise the teaching of modern free offer preachers as Amyraldism, and condemn it as error.
A short aid to further study of the subject and to consideration John's overall vision.
It is important to hold a clear view of this subject since the idea that all men are still made in God’s image leads to a degeneration of the doctrine of Total depravity. This then leads to further degeneration, such as teaching that sinners can please God in the flesh, or can choose to believe without a prior work of grace in their heart.
Many contemporary ‘evangelical’ churches place no real value on the authority of the Bible and do not practically accept it as God’s revealed word. In practice many ‘Christians’ do not believe that the Bible is authoritative, infallible, inspired or inerrant. Supposed ‘Christian’ churches and individuals that act in this way are not Christian in any sense at all. They are sub-Christian and do not walk in the truth. For this reason we need to look at the importance of the doctrine of scripture today.
Knowledge is at the very centre of Christian development. Far from being spurned (as it commonly is), the knowledge of God is utterly crucial to spiritual growth. Grace and peace is multiplied in the knowledge of God and Jesus.
This event requires comment as the official narrative is an insult to the intelligence. One must begin to see how events are being manipulated to further the satanic strategy of world domination by a Luciferian elite. I analyse the known facts and expose the problems. I also reveal the massive occult coincidences.
This is the final update on the Las Vegas massacre posted on 14 October 2017, and is double the last edition.
This short paper compares the differences between the Mosaic Law, as the rule or guide of life, with the office and work of the Holy Spirit in sanctifying believers.
God considers His church to be a family and expects it to act like a family; He forbids us to behave as if it were a mere organisation.
Whilst a communal meal can be a beneficial part of a church meeting, the Lord's Supper is - and always was - distinct from such meal. The scriptural evidence requiring this demarcation is presented in this paper.
I have been asked about this subject a few times recently and thought that a paper on it may be of use to people. So much junk has been written about this that it is time for a breath of sanity.
This paper urges the believer not to ignore any of the things which the Bible actually tells us about justification, but to examine, explain and collate them into a cohesive, sane unit of theology. If this is done, it will be impossible to assail the truth that justification is by faith alone.
An examination of the total difference between worldly and Biblical leadership. Sadly everywhere today the churches are following earthly leadership patterns instead of the Biblical one, which is humble service like a shepherd.
This paper demonstrates what the bible teaches about riches and how godly men have avoided riches, even when they were originally gifted with them.
Have you been told that you must call Jesus by the name of Yeshua or even Yashua? Have you been confused as to what to think? Has the English church been wrong on this for 2,000 years? This is a pretty detailed paper explaining what you need to know and what the lies are, and even where they came from. Do not be confused, God is satisfied with you calling his Son, 'Jesus'.
This is a study that should bring us all to our knees. Simply by looking at the names and titles of God in scripture we can generate a picture of his character and divine attributes. He is unlike the false gods of heathen nations.
A very important paper explaining the tripartite nature of man (trichotomy). This is a much debated issue in Reformed circles and one which is both misunderstood and ignored by many systematics completely. Sadly, it is spoken about in perfectionist and Charismatic writings where it is much debased and confused. Ironically, the details of the subject expounded here are absolutely vital in order to understand the practical aspects of sanctification. This is one reason why holiness is rarely seen these days. Very few understand what the heart is, where it is, what the old man is, what the new man is, what the difference between soul and spirit is etc. If teachers do not understand this, how can church members? I trust that this will be a help for you all. It is the result of several decades of study and meditation and I doubt you will see such an evaluation anywhere else.
We ignore the importance of teaching in the local church at our peril.
The greatest problem in the church today is that it often does not listen to Christ. It is bent on hearing many other voices but does not concentrate on hearing the Lord himself.
Many evangelical heresies are the result of forming doctrines from an individual text (or a small number of specific texts) and not from a complete reading of scripture.
This paper is to help the Christian have some small grasp of what the eternal plan and purpose of God is; to understand the outworking of God's decree and see how harmoniously the various Biblical doctrines fit into this plan.
Exhortation is more than delivering a sermon and God also commands that it be constant, multiple and mutual.
Here I give my thoughts and observations on this topic before I get swamped with questions. I also explain the background of Cultural Marxism, which is very relevant. There are many unanswered questions and the official narrative has serious holes.
The biblical truths of Calvinism can be explained with a few simple statements and a clear exposition of Eph 2.
Due to the near total confusion of many in the church on this topic, I have sought here to simply list the clear scriptures that refer to the end times in their logical and Biblical order.
Charismaticism clearly originates from Pentecostal sources, but where did the Pentecostal experiences come from? This paper explains.
This is a very important and explosive book. It explains how the Pharisees, whom Jesus denounced as satanic liars and murderers, evolved into modern day rabbinic Judaism, via the Talmud and Kabbala. Modern Orthodox Judaism is nothing but Satan worship and a licence to commit wickedness. Thus any association with Judaism, or the State of Israel which is founded on the Talmud, is pure blasphemy. Messianic Christianity is a deception that supports Satanism. This book also shows how Marxism and Zionism are the Talmud in political practice. This explains many historical mysteries: why Patton was halted, why the Bolsheviks were aided by America, why the US enabled the Communist take over of China and why the US lost the Korean War, and much more. Christians must understand the truth about Judaism.
This is a paper showing that the poor are the object of God's attention and that we must consider them at all times. It is a tragic criticism of the modern church that it has largely lost its historic focus on giving to the poor and meeting the needs of the afflicted; instead money is wasted on large dedicated buildings and multiple unbiblical offices. There is no blessing in this but there is blessing in helping the poor.
This paper expounds a short but very important passage which is completely misunderstood by most commentators. It is of vital importance in understanding sanctification and encouragement to press on.
Can we tell sinners that God loves them?
An exegesis of the problematic parts of Numbers that talk of Balaam’s relationship (or not) with the God of Israel. This is a very important part of Scripture, and one that is misunderstood by almost everyone. The key is to see that it is a battle between Yahweh and the gods of Canaan (as early Exodus is a battle between Yahweh and the gods of Egypt).
This is a short paper intended to give a succinct summary of the serious problems surrounding Wesley.
Society is dominated by wickedness. This wickedness is controlled by people committed to certain agendas. One means of facilitating these agendas is to lie to the public; thus politicians are frequently caught out in blatant lies. But it is worse than that. There are several religious groups who are allowed by their religion to lie and deceive outsiders. Many people in such groups are in high levels of power. You need to understand the basis of this lying so that you are not deceived yourself.
I believe this to be one of the most important articles that I have written. It deals with the theology and practicality of sin, a subject much ignored and misunderstood.
In this day and age it is all the more important to explain that happiness is not connected to money, external things, selfishness or pleasure but to spiritual duty.
A serious paper showing how Scripture reveals the workings of Satan, and an extrapolation of that teaching to show how he is working in the world today, and what he is working towards. Christians need to be aware of the satanic strategy that is active in politics and world organisations, and avoid supporting them.
There is no discrepancy in Scripture regarding punishment of children for their father’s sin.
This is the introduction to a paper that I am working on but it struck me that it may be of use on its own. It is a primer regarding Satanic activity on the earth and what this is all about.
Believers urgently need to understand the eternal plan of God or they will fail to really understand theology and their part in God's purpose. Having done that believers also need to understand what the plan of Satan is or they will fail to understand his devices against them and will end up serving him rather than God. Many Christians today actually serve the devil rather than God without even knowing it. This paper explains this and gives some examples. may it make you wise unto salvation.
This is a small book outlining the history of the Satanic war against Christianity after the Reformation. It covers short articles on philosophy, heresy, social and political movements. This is a very useful handbook on these issues. There are also a number of diagrams and tables.
Most modern churchgoers are pre-occupied with earthly success.Their own satisfaction becomes an idol that traps them. It is no surprise that there is a famine of the word of the Lord in these churches. This paper shows that according to the Bible, there is no testimony in avoiding suffering, but there is in being victorious in it.
I believe this to be one of the most important articles that I have written. It deals with the theology and practicality of sin, a subject much ignored and misunderstood.
In order to be informed and not deceived, we have to study each of the passages such as Matthews 24 and others in harmony with one another, and also extricate what applies to the future and that which already has transpired. This is the purpose of this paper.
The believers meeting in Biblical churches that function according to scripture will grow automatically with divine power. It is that simple.
The temple is a multi-faceted type, with various sub-types. The chief symbolic factor residing in the type of the temple is the dwelling place of God, but it is also the place where atonement is made, where judgment has ceased and where the redeemed are established. It is a holy place where only the sanctified dwell. It is where God is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. The truth of these things is clearly understood in the New Covenant reality of the church. However, we can also learn from the typology seen in the history of the establishing of Israel’s temple.
Was Israel in Egypt for 215, 400 or 430 years? The Bible, and Jewish historians, suggest all three. This paper explains why there is no discrepancy.
There are several sorts of hindrances and each requires a different approach. Wisdom is required to discern the sources of hindrances to the Lord's work.
In this paper we evaluate the matter of God’s sovereignty in all areas of life and government, in areas which affect both the life of the believer and the secular world. Getting this right is fundamental to living a godly Christian life.
This paper examines the subject of suffering, which is so infrequently done by the church. My intention is to show every single relevant New Testament text in this paper. Christians need to see that this is not a small matter in scripture.
An important paper showing that a great many practices and principles of the modern church have not an ounce of support in the Bible. If we took them all away there would be little left. This shows how unbiblical the modern church is. From Gospel preaching to church practices, we have strayed from the truth. May God have mercy on his people.
What Christians are being taught in modern apostate churches, makes them complacent. Complacency is sin. This explains how Christians will be judged accordingly.
This is a paper on the need to discriminate between Biblical tradition, which is to be obeyed, and the tradition of men, which is to be rejected. Though this is a simple matter, very many in the church today make serious mistakes about this.
Huge numbers of churchgoers have been deceived about the subject of Jews and Judaism, and this has only occurred during the awful apostasy and deception that has developed in the last 150 years, an unprecedented falling away. This paper is a detailed exposition of what the Bible expressly teaches about Jews from cover to cover; indeed, most of the salient points rest chiefly on numerous Biblical quotes. I also explain modern Judaism and what it entails. This is important and sobering reading. It is necessary for you to keep yourself in the word of God on this issue.
As was the case in the apostolic church, the focus of this paper is on the modern church facing a threat from two opposite directions. The first is the widespread neo-Gnosticism of the Charismatic Movement, and the other is the centring upon Jewish things and Judaism exhibited in a number of movements. Both these threats are deceptions designed by the enemy to distract Christians away from the truth in Christ.
With apologies to oversees subscribers, this paper simply lays out some important facts to consider regarding the upcoming UK election. I do not tell anyone how to vote but just give vital facts that you need to be aware of regarding two or three issues.
A schematic presentation of what continues and what is abrogated in terms of the law.
It is my contention that almost everything done in modern, formal, institutional churches is wrong. This is a strong statement but the attached paper demonstrates that it is true. Oh that the church would wake up and see the truth of God's word and dedicate itself to obey it fully. Then, instead of being a weak, ridiculed and largely ignored segment of society, we might change the world as the early church did by effectively preaching the Gospel and saving people out of it. May God give us grace.
This book is a thorough examination of the claims of Dispensationalism and Messianic Christianity that Jews are the people of God and that the kingdom is primarily Jewish. I expound the Biblical texts involved and demonstrate the theological fallacies involved.
This is a paper demonstrating the absolute vital importance of God's word and the huge privilege it is for man, alone in creation, to have possession of it. This gives us insight into God's mind and heart, allowing us to understand who God is, as well as what he desires of us. This being so, God's word is at the heart of all Satan's attacks on the church. I show a number of features of these attacks today. By being warned about these we can avoid losing focus on God's word to us.
This paper helps us as believers wanting to serve God, to we understand what it is that God is doing in this world, why he is doing it, how he intends to achieve it and what his programme is.
A paper showing the sin of severely increasing the number of poor people and worsening the lot of the vulnerable.
This is a paper showing the sin of severely increasing the number of poor people and worsening the lot of the vulnerable.
Here I demonstrate how the world is going mad, why this is happening, how it is happening, and the organisations behind it. I explain that this is all under God's sovereign control and for his end time purpose to glorify his name. It is filled with useful data.
This is an explanation of a much debated text in Rev 13. I show what this really is and apply the verse to what is going on around us today. There is also exposition of parallel passages in Rev 17 and 20. This passage is not difficult to understand, but it needs wisdom. Sadly, little of that is often applied in the speculations of commentators. We must not limit God's word to our convenient literal interpretations.
A paper dealing with the popular YouTube video of Stephen Fry denouncing God on the basis of human suffering. I hope my apologetic will be of some use.
The path of learning what pleases God and follow him every moment is not straight or smooth. Smooth poles need to be grown by human cultivation, but these cannot grow into mighty trees. This paper show that trying to do God’s will in the power of the flesh is futile.
A paper on the current raging issue of Gay marriage. There is nothing new in this but what ought to be well known to everyone appears to be ignored in most of the media debates on the subject. I trust that this paper will clarify some important points. This is part of the death knell for our society and an important sign of the times. The key issue is what it does to the established churches.
I get asked about what music is safe to listen to all the time. In one respect this is a complex thing to answer; yet in another it is very simple - listen to what is good. The problem comes with all the baggage of presupposition and prejudice that people bring to this subject; neither is there much help from past theologians since it simply wasn't an issue then. So, after just giving some email answers here and there for years, I thought it time to do a proper exposition of this and expose the nonsense that also prevails in many Christian circles. Some may find some of this challenging, but try to work through the Biblical principles. Much of what is said would apply to all art forms, including movies.
This paper addresses the fact that in history the Free Offer has been associated with Arminianism and other heresies, but today the majority of Reformed teachers hold this position which is based upon a common grace to all. These are unbiblical concepts and imply contradiction in God as well as denial of his word.
These are my thoughts on the election. For those not interested in the UK election, there are some pertinent Biblical thoughts about involvement in politics in the conclusion.
A paper critiquing a very influential church leader and writer in New York. More and more church leaders in the UK are becoming supporters of this man and imbibing his teaching. However, my paper demonstrates that his teaching is far from orthodox; indeed even his Gospel is deeply flawed. This is yet another teacher that people need to be warned about. His deceptive messages will only cause problems.
A simple little paper that explains the chief titles of the Lord's people. Such basic information is useful and, in these days of ignorance, a corrective to wrong thinking.
To many this is a mundane subject, but it is absolutely essential for a real spiritual life. This paper gives a useful analysis of the necessary tools required for proper Bible study. May it serve you well.
An important paper explaining how we work out our salvation with God willing inside us. The Spirit is responsible for our sanctification but he does not do the work for us. Surprisingly, the mystical errors of perfectionism still abound in the church today. Such mysticism is false. Faith WORKS through love.
This paper explains the psychotic decisions of the UK government to destroy millions of trees, both in the UK and in Virginia, USA. Few people understand anything about this and there are two key industries involved, supposedly Green biomass energy and 5G. Both are deleterious.This paper also forms a short introduction to the dangerous perils of 5G. Beware, it is coming to you.
This is a really simple table explaining how truth is imparted. Though simple, this is very important today, and much misunderstood.
A paper I consider to be very important. It regards the Scriptural references to the opposing camps of God's people, and the flesh under the control of God's enemy. Thus two types of men are pictured throughout Scripture referring to the elect on the one hand and the reprobate on the other. This also works out into the symbolism regarding the old nature and the new nature, what is of Christ and what is of Adam. It is important to see this in order to understand Scripture properly.
This is a paper on some basic economic and social parameters which we need to understand in order to properly judge politicians. This is especially true in an election year (as per the UK). It is not enough these days to judge what is right and what is left since all the UK parties (except Respect and the Greens) are on the right. The nuances of scale, especially regarding authoritarianism, are very important. I hope this paper is of some value.
From the mid 1980’s, many churches began to follow the emphasis given by John Wimber on Signs and Wonders. Indeed, who could fail to be captivated by the humility, affability and sincerity of the man who described himself as: ‘just a little fat man on his way to heaven’. The main concern of this paper is the alliances that began to emerge following John Wimber’s involvement in the English church scene. It also touches on the issue of false prophets and other charismatic and pentecostal errors.
We are not only living in a post-Biblical world but in a post-Biblical church. Many of the modern UK churches have no clue about even basic doctrines. Worse yet, many church leaders either distort the Biblical message or just use texts as a tagline for various humanistic or mystical thoughts. This paper focuses on vital truths that are being left aside today. God’s word alone must be our authority, no matter how uncomfortable it truths make us feel.
This paper shows why wisdom and discernment are absolutely vital in this world of deception. Everything must be tested, not just the elite mainstream; nothing can be trusted. I explain why and give practical advice. I also examine the situation at Charlottesville and use it as an example. The mainstream media picture of this was utterly false.
This paper contains ten warnings formulated from the apostolic writings on the end. There are no doubt more, but what is crucial to understand is that the end is a time of deep deception that floods the church and many fall away as a result.
John Wesley is flavour of the month with everyone. It is astounding that not only evangelicals but Reformed men, who claim to be thoroughly Calvinistic, are lauding him in books, messages and conferences. Read this paper where I demonstrate, from his own words, that John Wesley could not possibly be a true Christian. Reading Wesley, to say nothing of being fascinated with him, is dangerous. This is the appalling level that Christians today have sunk into, being thoroughly deceived.
The paper (really a book) seeks to confront the terrible lies that are being banded about regarding the Reformers and the fruit of the Reformation; in particular the specific lies stated by Jacob Prasch that are being parroted by so many today.
This is a short paper (phew!) picking up on a point in the last one that will not interest everybody but will certainly be important to a few, especially leaders. It explains the difference between historic continental Arminianism and Wesley's Methodist theology. It also shows the key point of difference between Wesley and Calvin.
This paper is an excerpt from a larger work, The Baptism in the Holy Spirit. It is necessary to understand the foundational principle of spiritual gifts in the church and give special consideration to some questions about the gift of tongues.
After much study, this paper confirms that credobaptism only, is allowed for those who have exercised faith in Christ as Saviour and submitted to his Lordship, demonstrating this by true repentance.
These two papers explain the truth about British culture and history which is being trampled on by cultural Marxists in education, politics and the media. Britain's historic culture is not diverse and heterogeneous; it is Christian. What led to western democracy, liberal values and culture were Christian principles.
In obedience to the Lord's command in Prov 31:9 (and the overwhelming repeated example of the OT prophets and the law of God) I draft this paper condemning the devastating and foolish cuts on the disabled and poor by this current government in disobedience to God's law. I list some examples of how these affect the disabled and poor and also show the relevant Scriptures that apply to the government. By making the rich much richer at the same time as making the poor and sick worse off is a sin in itself. But to do this to fix the problems in the economy caused by the sins of the rich in the first place is gross iniquity. These policies are wicked and God's word affirms that Christians should condemn them.
This paper is necessary comment on the situation in the west at the moment, which is an all out psychological war (and sometimes material oppression) of Christianity and those who support traditional values. You need to understand what is happening and be wise.
A short and simple evangelistic tract which may be of use.
This paper shows that the favouring of Judaism is not only unbiblical and unwise, it is dangerous. Judaism is a false religion that is set in opposition to Christ. Furthermore, support of the modern state of Israel is extremely unwise as it is a fleshly nation like any other and prone to serious mistakes.
So few people ever discuss this matter and most presume that the local practice is the norm. It almost certainly is not. This is a simple Biblical analysis, taking pragmatics into consideration. The apostolic method is the best method and goes against normal modern practice (as usual).
A very important paper on a much confused subject. Indeed, whole false theologies have been built upon a wrong understanding of it. It, therefore, behoves us to look at this subject carefully and Scripturally.
This is a paper explaining both the importance of theology but also of our being lights in the world. This means that we are necessarily involved in true politics. This is not worldly partisan politics but being a bellwether for our neighbours and doing good to all, as we are able. Modern Christians seem to want little of either.
A paper that you need to read in order to understand what is actually going on in Syria. The whole war against IS is a fabrication and a means to make geopolitical changes, introduce radical domestic despotic laws and possibly usher in a world war. Cameron is complicit in this and is now spending your taxes to bomb innocent civilians, only serving to further radicalise offended Muslims and threaten the UK. The days of the elite fooling people are drawing to a close as more and more people see what is going on. Remember all the lies when (if) you next vote. Of course, the believer sees all this as part of the end time plans to bring about a satanic, global, despotic government.
The deep state driven media is at it again trying to foist war, possibly world war upon us. Although the BBC is happy to repeat lie upon lie, even a cursory examination of the facts regarding the Syrian Sarin attack shows that it was not done by Assad, or Russia, but by the people your taxes are funding. When will people wake up?
A paper regarding a sensitive issue. However, whatever the sensitivities, what is important is the truth. The only way to find this out is to see exactly what Scripture teaches in plain words. Thus, this paper seeks to show what the prophets, Jesus and the apostles taught on this matter - and it is very clear.
I had to work hard on this since it is complex, boring and tiring. However, hopefully the fruit of that work will mean that you have a resource that is useful to you. This is a paper demonstrating the differences in the key world religions and comparing them with Christianity. The purpose is to show that it is a lie to say that all religions lead to God - they cannot as they disagree in hundreds of ways. The paper also doubles as an introduction to these religions. In most cases you only need it as reference. However, the argument is worth reading and there are appendices which I think are useful. Having finished this, it just demonstrates to me that Christianity is on a completely different level to any other faith and that there is no Saviour like Christ; none can compare. Also, there is no other sacred scripture which compares in veracity with the Bible. May it be of use.
An important and sobering paper that will challenge some. Nevertheless, such a paper is needed to expose the superficiality of much that goes on in the name of the Lord these days. May God have mercy on his people.
This paper helps us understand that the Sabbath was a time for physical rest and ceasing from work, but the rest for the believer in the New Testament is spiritual – a ceasing from works of self-righteousness and believing in Christ, who God provided by grace.
Here is a simple paper that demonstrates why Charles Darwin was a fake who did no original science but introduced terrible effects into society. He was neither a trained scientist nor an original thinker. His continued admiration by 'scientific' media celebrities merely shows the poverty of current thinking.
A very brief explanation of the Biblical position on tongue speaking for modern readers.
Yet another novelty in the apostasy-ridden churches, using the term 'G-d' for God; supposedly out of respect. In fact it is due to adopting the superstitious attitudes of the Pharisees to word magic as taught by Talmudic rabbis. It is not reverential, it is a demonic deception. Oh that God's people would wake up and focus on his Word instead of the fables of men.
This paper lays out the truth regarding the Douma attack. It was not Assad. British and American secret services have been planning this for some time.
A booklet produced to encourage believers to truly worship the Lord the biblical way by coming together with other saints, each one coming as a worshipper.
The essence of holiness is separation and God expects us to be holy as he is holy, and thus separate form all evil and compromise. It is vital to know what makes us unclean and how important it is to be separate form evil. Hew modern Christians understand how.
There is still a lot of confusion in the churches about election these days since Arminian type teachings are so abundant. Therefore, I send out this old paper with a new appendix that simply applies the truth of Scripture in this matter.
