  1. Doctrine

    "That we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine…” (Ephesians 4:14) Many people today react negatively to the words, “theology” and “doctrine.” They are said to involve dry, irrelevant matters, which have no bearing on real life. If that were true, it would be quite understandable why we might want to steer clear and focus our attention...
  2. The Forerunner Of Glory

    Originally appeared on my blog, Hebridean Outpost. “…The Lord will give grace and glory…” (Psalm 84:11) In ancient days, when larger ships were unable to get close enough to shore to dock due to stormy conditions, the ship’s anchor would be placed in a small boat called a forerunner.

  7. Spotless Lamb Of God

    The hypothetical, hypostatic, Messianic, and individual arguments for the impeccability of Christ are explained and illustrated from significant theological sources.
  8. Sovereignty Of God

    There are many verses in scripture, which proclaim that God is the sovereign ruler of the universe and that God’s sovereignty is one of His principal attributes. Before examining any of these texts, I first want us to understand what sovereignty means, so we can have a correct understanding of this doctrine.
