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 even the presence of Christ in all the Scriptures has been greatly challenged by a new para-Christian movement which has revived the Marcion heresy of the second century. To refresh our memories and inform those who have never heard of Marcion, he was born in Synope, thought to be the Synop of present day Turkey, and visited Rome around 144 A.D. spreading dualistic teaching concerning a wrathful God of severe justice… Full Article

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 Grace before my long pause cries out to be continued due to new attacks from once Reformed sectors.      The gospel news of a Covenant of Grace from eternity covering the whole of time has been severely challenged recently by Dispensationist-Neo-Covenant campaigners with their cut-down theology who are quite out of date with their views mainly built on heretical teaching spread by the Marcionites at the beginning of the world-wide Christian outreach and the… Full Article

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.

I asked Randy to give me a detailed list of what he believed for my consideration which I believe he did and I started to work on it. Then came a long period of illness which removed me from active service and I had to sell off my large library with a view of going with my dear wife into what we call here a Senior Residence’. However both of us have emerged from our troubles (mostly due to old age, bad sight and painful limbs) after a long ‘Sabbath Rest’ and I started to look into the web to see if I could find any traces… 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
