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 has not the opportunity to check what I say but does not believe that I am correct. But has he totally forgotten everything that he and his co-NCT-authors wrote? How is it that when I even give him the page in his own book, he cannot find the word he wrote? I can appreciate and welcome his change of mind, as the Old Covenant which Christ fulfilled cannot, at least by any Bible-believing person, be called ‘wrong’, or even partly wrong, but I cannot accept his denial of… Full Article

Randy Seiver’s Graceless Covenant

     Randy Seiver’s colleague and countryman, the comedian Ken Hubbard, once said wisely that it is very difficult to become succesful without becoming unsympathetic. Seiver obviously wishes to aim at success by debunking orthodoxy and breaking a lance for his own, very personal, version of New Covent Theology. In response to my answer to his ill-spoken blog, he has retorted with a new attempt to appear as unsympathetic as possible after telling me personally that he would never again read anything I wrote. Notwithstanding, his new confrontation can be found on Seiver’s site dated 26th Sept. 2011.      Once again, Seiver starts on the wrong foot by quoting me as saying‚ ‘The Church started at Pentecost, and there is… Full Article

Randy Seiver on Right and Wrong

     I was sent what he called a ‘blog’ recently by a person who neither addressed me by name, nor introduced himself. It read:      ‘There ought to be a fine for stupidity! There is some clown named George M. Ella at http://evangelica.de/articles/covenant-theology-as-seen-by-new-covenant-…whose license to write ought to be rescinded. Oh, that’s right, there is no license for writing, but their ought to be. Before writing about another person’s views, a person should have to prove he has the ability to read and rightly interpret those views. If he can’t do that, he should be forbidden to write. This guy claims to be a Doctor of some type–perhaps he is a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine I don’t know. For all I know,… Full Article

Covenant Theology as Seen by New Covenant Theology: Part Two

     Part One dealt with the alleged agreements between the two covenant concepts, though neither the NCT’s own views of God’s Covenant with His Son, nor their erroneous presentation of Covenant Theology represent Biblical teaching. NCT’s dualistic view of the Testaments also affects their alleged disagreements with Covenant Theology as outlined in Theopaedia. NCT alleged disagreements with Covenant Theology 1. The Church started at Pentecost, and there is therefore no “Church” as such in the Old Testament/Covenant.      One cannot separate the Church from the everlasting Covenant of Grace. This was preached and believed by the prophets in the Old Testament and also preached and believed by New Testament saints such as… Full Article

Covenant Theology as Seen by the NCT: Part One

     Peter Ditzel, whose attempt to distort Peter Meney’s and my own doctrine of justification was dealt with in the last issue, belongs to the latter day New Covenant Theology group of para-church movements. These have radically altered their common beliefs of some dozen years ago and are now expanding their Marcionite dualistic vision from their various contradictory views of the Covenant into all areas of theology.   They are now winning recruits from once staunch holders of Presbyterian covenant views such as The Founders Ministries who have brought new variations with them. It is thus fitting to take a new look at what some NCT adherents are saying today. So as not to meet confusion with confusion, I shall… Full Article
