What is the difference between Primitive Baptists and Reformed Baptists? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Josh Winslett

This question often arises when viewing these two Baptist families. Both groups hold similar beliefs on many core Christian essentials. Both groups affirm the Trinity, the eternal Sonship of Christ, the inspiration and preservation of the Bible, the virgin birth of Christ, the Hypostatic union, the sovereignty of God in salvation, eternal security, as well as many other Baptist and sovereign grace believer distinctives.

Withstanding the Devil's Wiles PDF Print E-mail

Beloved, during this uncertain and chaotic time, it is vitally important for you to “put on the whole armor of God” and especially the “helmet of salvation” to withstand against the “wiles of the devil” (see Eph. 6:10-18). Satan is a deceiver, the father of lies, subtil, and wily. Satan cannot pluck any of God’s children of out the eternal hand of the Father, but he is out to corrupt the minds of God’s children. That is why we must put on the whole armor of God and our helmet of salvation to protect our minds. Our helmet of salvation protects our brain, or figuratively, our mind. Our mind should be filled with the salvation of Jesus Christ and our eternal security by his sovereign grace and that will protect our mind from the wiles of the devil. It is vitally for us to be properly adorned with the armor of God to withstand the onslaught of the devil against the Lord’s people.

Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People? PDF Print E-mail

Why do bad things happen to good people? This question is commonly asked in response to some tragic event that, in our opinion, unfairly touches the lives of those who are trying to live in a godly way. This question is actually indicative of an incorrect perspective of the reality of this world. The answer to this troubling question is that bad things don’t happen to innately good people – in our nature we are “bad people”, not good people; there is none that doeth good, no, not one (Rom. 3:12); no one on this earth is good by nature. There is only one exception to that universal rule of original sin and man’s innate “badness” instead of goodness, and that is Jesus Christ. The truth is that bad things have only ever happened to a truly “good man” one time – when the perfectly good, sinless Son of God was unjustly condemned by men and gave up his life to save his people from their sins. Therefore, we need to ask a more appropriate question from the proper perspective. Since of all mankind is innately bad by nature, the proper question then is: “Why do good things ever happen to bad people?”

Bringing Every Thought Into Captivitiy PDF Print E-mail

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” (Philippians 4:8)

 

For the disciple of Christ, it is absolutely vital for us to control our thought process, to bring our thoughts into captivity to honor the Lord. We have to be very purposeful to control our thought process because our minds are prone to drift to vain, unprofitable things of this world. We have to make a committed decision to think on these ”true, honest, just, pure, lovely, good, virtuous, and praiseworthy things”.

A Passing Thought on Submission PDF Print E-mail
Written by Ben Winslett   
Wednesday, 29 April 2020 08:29

One of the most difficult and resented words in the English language is "submit." We, all of us, have a natural aversion to submission. We hate to give way to the authority another, and even if we do it is often resented. Yet we find various of this in commandments throughout the Bible. When I say we, I really mean me.
