In several programs this year, we have examined the theological war that is taking place within the Southern Baptist Convention, the nation’s largest Protestant denomination and the one that trains the most pastors in their seminaries.

The Bible says, “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ” (Colossians 2:8).

Notice the words—“philosophy, empty deception, tradition of men, elementary principles of the world”. And notice what these do—“takes you […]

Shortly before His crucifixion, Jesus told His disciples that the magnificent temple in Jerusalem—the central place of worship for the Jews—would be destroyed. Shocked, the disciples asked Jesus, “Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age” (Matthew 24:3-4)?

The disciples back then were asking some of the same questions that believers are asking […]

How the Age-Old Scheme of Lie, Silence, and Control Dominates Our Age

2022-04-27T21:38:21-05:00Apr 23, 2022|

This is an age-old scheme. Consider what took place after the resurrection of Jesus Christ. […]

GUEST: PAUL TWISS, Instructor of Bible Exposition, The Master’s Seminary
