Has the God of Moses, Abraham, David and the Prophets a Different Righteousness to the God of the New Testament as some Christians now claim?

New times of apostasy      It would have seemed folly a few generations ago for a confessing Reformed Evangelical to ask such a question without earning the undoubtable and rather shocked answer, ‘No’. But we are living in new times of apostasy and sadly, the righteousness of God as displayed in all the Scriptures and […]

A New Look at Developing NCT Theology

Echoes of the misled past in modern thought      I have been inactive in writing for the past couple of years due to several illnesses and the loss of my library but now the Lord has somewhat restored me and I am back in action. I see now that my work on the Covenant of […]

Randy Seiver’s Ten Questions

     Some years ago, I had a very stormy debate with Randy Seivers concerning his writings on the NCT and my response to them.

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.

Recent Judgment on George Ella Examined

     Recently, I have been soundly scolded in a lengthy article on Peter Ditzel’s website both for my beliefs and for allegedly misrepresenting those of the web-master with ‘sarcasm’ and ‘verbal violence’. This article was chiefly, it appears, a reaction to my refutation of Ditzel’s criticism of my doctrine of justification. Several years after writing […]
