Ditzel’s Last Stand

     Several weeks ago, I received a surprising letter from the NCT website The Word of His Grace, signed by Peter Ditzel. We had last corresponded personally, Peter informed me, in 2007 when I was very ill. So now, in April 2012, five years later Peter was writing to hear if I were now, once […]

Christ’s work as Saviour within the Covenant of Grace

     God’s Word, the Bible, teaches clearly that all that is necessary for a sinner’s salvation is worked out in eternity and reserved in Heaven for whoever is placed in Christ from eternity. This teaching starts at the first page of Genesis and continues to the last page of Revelation, revealing more and more of […]

Dear Brother Shane

Dear Brethren,      I have recently found the following letter on a web-site named The Lifted Veil. I replied immediately but, as so often on these sites, I was not accepted as a subscriber and my letter and personal data just disappeared after clicking on the comments button. I am thus presenting the original ‘open […]

Christ Did Not Become Sin Merely Figuratively

     Reading through the Predestinarian Network blog-site again today, I came across a most surprising accusation. The page began with a writer apparently accusing me of believing that Christ was made sin merely figuratively and not actually. This was taken to be by other contributors because I used the words ‘as if’. My surprise increased […]

Man Relieved of Responsibility for His own Fall

     There are two modern movements in evangelism today which claim the backing of Reformed Christians and are even supported by many of my closest friends. I find I cannot go along with them and must make my reasons clear for thinking, believing and acting otherwise. These many brethren will remain my friends, but I […]

The Predestinarian Network

Dear Friends and Brethren,      Just as I tried recently to log on to the Puritanboard because they were carrying on speculative discussions regarding my person in my absence, I have been trying to log on to the Predestinarian Network as they seem to be very interested in confirming rumours concerning me and guessing […]

Siever Gets it Wrong Again . . . . and Again

     After presenting my D.D. thesis The Practical Divinity of Universal Learning: John Durie’s Educational Pansophism to Marburg University this last Thursday (8.12.2011) on which I had been working intensively for almost two years, I now find some time to dig deeper into NCT ‘studies’ on God’s Covenant and tackle further ideas from  Randy Seiver.

Seiver Gets It Wrong Again

     R. Seiver once again in a new blog has denied writing the words he wrote in his book In These Last Days. This time, he rejects the idea that he wrote that the Old Covenant was ‘wrong’, though I gave him the page to look up. Up to now he has complained that he […]

The Other George Melvyn Ella

The Puritanboard      Most of my readers will be familiar with the on-line web-site The Puritanboard. The site often carries good, general articles of instruction and edification. At times, however, the contributors seem to be very strict and particular in their ecclesiastical views and their narrow understanding of church and denominational history. I have striven […]
