Day of Special Studies : The Fallible Prophets of New Calvinism

Flawed Foundations of ‘Continuationism’

Michael Beasley

The author of The Fallible Prophets of New Calvinism expertly exposes in three messages the flawed interpretation behind charismatic gifts continuing today (e.g. Grudem).

Abandoning the Old Paths in Theology

Dr Peter Masters

Two messages reviewing the bestselling Systematic Theology of Prof Wayne Grudem showing how major teachings and practices among evangelical are being rejected in favour of the unbiblical notions of ‘new evangelicalism’, contemporary worship, tongues and gifts.

How Atheism Steals our Hearts

In the disastrous decision of the ungodly king who took Judah into 70 years of captivity we see the very influence that manipulates away from God, and into rationalism and atheism. Here are the 'levers' used by unbelieving society to keep us from God.

God’s Rules for Tongues and Worship

Reading these God-given rules and limitations of the ministry of prophets and tongues speakers we see the enormous gulf between what really happened in the formation stage of the church and what charismatics do today. The path of obedience is the true path of blessing.

Knowing the Love of Christ

Paul speaks of knowing 'the love of Christ which passeth knowledge.' This message describes the nature of Christ's love towards those who find and know Him - actions of affection, kindness and power unmatched in human society. Here is how it may be experienced.

The Supremacy of Love

Love must be the driving virtue and motive of all that is done for Christ, insists the inspired apostle. Then he shows how it acts and reacts in all circumstances concluding with the reasons for its supremacy over all the gifts and graces.

The Abandonment of Consecration

Why is there virtually no concept of Christian consecration today among Reformed evangelicals? Why do so many churches and Christians find worldliness acceptable? James demonstrates how the Holy Spirit yearns for our entire consecration to the Lord — beginning with humble submission to Him.

Six Biblical Steps for Guidance

Dr Peter Masters

This article presents the traditional view that we are to seek real guidance from the Lord in all the major decisions of life, and he will certainly clarify our thinking, or overrule our circumstances. ‘Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day’ (Psalm 25.4-5)

The Beginning of the World

Dr Peter Masters

The book of Genesis is in every way the foundational book of the entire Bible. It is the supreme book of beginnings, chronicling the origin of the universe and the human race, the entry of sin into the world, and the launching of the history of redemption. Many Christians do not know that all the great doctrines of the faith are introduced in this book, and portrayed in its pages. 

God’s Parallel Covenants

Dr Peter Masters

A divine covenant is an undertaking, a pledge by God, to relate to mankind on certain conditions. It is a form of compact or agreement. God does not relate to man in a haphazard, random, disorderly way, but in accordance with clear principles and purposes, reflecting his holy nature and requirements. The divine covenants of the Bible enable us to grasp God’s ways much more clearly. 

Infant Salvation

C H Spurgeon

Let every parent know assuredly that it is well with the child, if God has taken it away from you in its infant days. You never heard its declaration of faith; it was not capable of such a thing. It was not baptised into the Lord Jesus Christ. It was not capable of giving that ‘answer of a good conscience towards God'; nevertheless, you may rest assured that it is well with the child, well in a higher and a better sense than it is well with yourselves. The child is ‘well’ without limitation, without exception, infinitely and eternally.

Paul’s Ten Point Design for Church Health and Growth

Dr Peter Masters

What are our aims for the shaping and growth of our church? Do we have an agenda of objectives? The apostle Paul had a very definite purpose, using a Greek word which means 'a plan or strategy visibly displayed'. Here are ten policies, gleaned from Paul's teaching, all of which are essential for the health and growth of a church.

Missionary Triumph over Slavery

Dr Peter Masters

We are told today that Christian missionaries of the past were tools of colonial oppression. The story of missionary William Knibb shows how wildly wrong this is. Persecuted by British rulers in Jamaica because he opposed settlers’ abuses, he was pivotal in swinging British public opinion behind legislation to end colonial slavery.

God or Mammon? The Snare of the Prosperity Gospel

Robin Compston

'Who would have predicted that Christian churches would be infected by teaching as blatantly unbiblical as the Prosperity Gospel, an error which contradicts head-on the tenth commandment, and to which all believers should have an instinctive aversion?' So begins this startling unmasking of the heresies of the Prosperity Gospel movement.

When to Stand Apart

Dr Peter Masters

It is clearly a vital duty of Christians to stand apart from false teachers who deny the fundamentals of the faith. Many scriptures make this plain. But what about so-called 'secondary separation', meaning separation from believers who continue to walk closely with heretics and wrongdoers? And what about preachers who curse, or promote extreme worldliness, yet who claim to be saved? Here is guidance through a minefield of problems today, with help on the use of love, charity and discretion in applying the doctrine of separation.
