Randy Seiver’s Update on his Brand of New Covenant Theology

At the beginning of August, I decided to take advantage of a free Windows Ten update. All went well though it understandably took a long time for the update to be completed. I was surprised, however, to find that I suddenly received a backlog of e-mails in my ‘in’ box which had not hitherto turned […]

Preaching so that Sinners become Sensible to the Gospel

An actual reply to a Christian who has challenged me in several of his published writings and personal letters to me for teaching that John Gill only preached to those who were already believers and had already been made ‘sensible’ to the gospel.

Dealing with Birds of False Feathers

Dear Friends,      The two letters copied below were written in response to charges of Antinomianism, Hyper-Calvinism and false analyses of Fullerism coming from the Founders Journal and their supporters.

Harmful Church Patronages

A letter to the Evangelical Times concerning their criticism of the Church of England for abolishing patrons: Dear Sir,      At long last the Anglican Church is doing away with her evil practice of having patrons lord it over churches of which they themselves are often not even members.

Remembering Hampton Court

     Sir: The article Remembering Hampton Court (No. 55) though excellent in its appraisal of the Authorised version, suffers from amnesia concerning the so-called Conference which was rather an informal, summing-up chat in the King’s quarters after substantial reforms had been made in Convocation.      Far from only one puritan being present, most […]

Affirmation 2010 Deals with Critics

Affirmation 2010: A Non-Starter

Sir.      Why is the EC promoting the para-church creed, Affirmation 2010, which seeks to ‘win the widest possible agreement’ in ‘various church bodies and constituencies’? This aim is doomed from the start as the twenty-four subscribers to date obviously represent different theologies and denominations and are dodging and dumbing down doctrinal issues. Their views […]

Reply to Tony Bickley

Sir:      Tony Bickley accuses me of being controversial over a point entirely foreign to me, leaving me puzzled at his logic and reasoning. He concludes from my repeated claim that Christ in His human nature was tempted in all points as we are, yet without sin, that I teach that the Sinless One was […]

Sir:      Towards the end of the nineteen fifties, several Christian magazines served their readership well by re-introducing the teachings of the long-neglected Puritans. Subsequently, the Puritans […]
