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 showcase humanism and humanistic "interpretations" of the Word of God.

I have learned over the last 51 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  pseudo 'fellowship' has been created by people that is based on '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 very nearly disappeared from America.

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. My tone is serious—and 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.

 

New Article Underway:
The Problems with Covenant Theology

Most of my articles were researched and written in a few/several weeks each; some, like The Humanism of Evangelistic Apologetics or The Day of the Lord took many weeks/months to complete. The purpose of this announcement is to forewarn my readers that you probably won't see anything new on my site for at least a few months.

[I developed this research/writing pattern some time ago: I work most efficiently if I devote myself to a single article at a time rather than trying to get out shorter articles while working on a longer article.]

From my new birth in Christ in the spring of 1970 until this point, I've never studied in-depth either the Covenant or Dispensational theological frameworks. (In fact, I express the problems with such frameworks in my article The Problem with Interpretive (Hermeneutic) Frameworks.) I regard theological frameworks of any flavor both unnecessary and biblically wrong. More to the point, I hold them in contempt.

[If you want to consider this an 'inverse framework' bias, so be it...]

From my research into Covenant Theology thus far, I'm doubling-down on that predisposition the more I get into Covenant Theology. (That's all I'll say at this point - other than this teaser: it appears to be a virtual train-wreck of theological frameworks.)

And, to anticipate the automatic response by some to the above: no, I'm not Dispensational and my critique will not be from that point-of-view! If all goes according to plan, after this article I will research and release The Problems with Dispensational Theology.

[In fact, I challenge any of my readers to thoroughly examine my site if they wish to find any 'theological framework' bias - you won't find it because it doesn't exist. When I make an assertion, it is 'backed-up' with Scripture (and usually many references—in context!). Examples of where you you normally expect to find a framework bias would be articles such as The Day of the Lord and A Biblical Rebuttal of Dr. John MacArthur's "Imminent" Return of Christ. Both are 'pure Scripture', as you'll see.]

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