• One True Eternal God

    Deuteronomy 6:4

    Christian monotheism is vastly different from the monotheism found in Islam and modern rabbinic Judaism. We are not unitarians who simply have a different name for the same God others worship. Those who deny the Trinity deny the deity of ...Read More

  • Opposing the Lord’s Annointed

    Psalm 2:1-6

    The Westminster Shorter Catechism says that Christ executes the office of king by “subduing us to himself, in ruling and defending us, and in restraining and conquering all his and our enemies” (Q&A 26). All who oppose this work do ...Read More

  • Our Sovereign Sustainer

  • Paul the Pharisee

    Galatians 1:11–14

    Philemon 19-20

    Psalm 117

    Our obedience to the Lord does indeed provide a profound witness to the truth of God, but that we can never serve Him perfectly points to a need for a greater testimony to His faithfulness. This witness can only be ...Read More
