2 Tim 3.16-17
All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

Welcome to SolaScripturaToday!

SolaScripturaToday is devoted to the exposition and defense of the Word of God, as well as to call out the biblical errors of what is commonly called conservative evangelical Christianity, but which really showcases humanism and humanistic "interpretations" of the Word of God.

Now with the release of my latest article, I have added the first of my rebuttals of the broad topic of Covenant Theology. Over time, I will add other articles which deal with this ancient and destructive tradition to sound, biblical exposition of the Scripture.

Feature Article:

A Biblical Rebuttal of:
The Fulfillment of Promises of God
An Explanation of Covenant Theology,
by Dr. Richard Belcher, 2020.

By design this rebuttal covers only the first eight chapters of Dr. Belcher's book. To the extent that his book accurately represents Covenant Theology, this article is also rebuttal of the framework itself. I cover the mythical Covenant of Works and the Covenant of Grace, as well as Dr. Belcher's treatment of the 'real' covenants in the OT (which are, surprisingly, distorted).

If you know of seminary students in RTS or the several other covenant institutions, or if you know young pastors of the covenant persuasion, please direct them to this article. I promise that it will be quite informative to both groups. It was, in fact, written for them.

 

I have learned over the last 52 years that the Bible is not truly honored by those who claim to fear and revere the Lord's name and Word. Instead, where there should be sound, solid Bible exposition by men who have stood in the pulpit for 20+ years there is instead religious "fluff", sight and sound entertainment by popular bands with expensive audio and visual electronic equipment—all of which produce humanistic side-stepping around what the Scripture really teaches. Essentially anything is acceptable as long as it brings in contributors and/or makes people "feel good about themselves". A thoroughly fake "fellowship" has been created by people that is based on feelings and "getting along" on a Sunday morning rather than on solid, biblical doctrine.

There is nearly nothing left that is truly biblical; as a result, true churches have nearly disappeared from America. The preachers and pastors who occupy the pulpits in these so-called churches and have become the vanguard for America's steady moral decline.

Here, you'll find detailed Bible exposition as well as biblical analysis, critique and rebuttals of those who claim to be "Christian" and "devoted to the Bible" but are, in reality, opposed to it and distort it at every opportunity. In a word, these are the "theological gaslighters" of our day. By the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the Apostle Paul was shown what was to take place in the "last days":

2 Tim 3.1-5
But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.

If my site and writing server any purpose, it is to help you to identify those to avoid.

My tone is serious—sometimes sarcastic—because the problems in the American church are staggering. I'm more interested in getting the attention of my readers even if it means that I sometimes have to be jarring rather than merely erudite or polite.

By design, the articles on my site are not light reading; they demand careful reflection. If you are not willing to spend the time and thought, then my site is definitely not for you.

It is my hope and prayer that as you read and consider the Bible exposition on this site you'll come to the same conclusion that I have:

The 'Christian' church in America is in real trouble and bears essentially no resemblance to the pattern for the Body of Christ set forth in the Scripture.

The "church" has been in this miserable state for generations. Like the ancient church in Ephesus, the modern church has "left [its] first love", the Lord Christ. (Eph 2.4)
