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severely challenged recently by Dispensationist-Neo-Covenant campaigners with their cut-down theology who are quite out of date with their views mainly built on heretical teaching spread by the Marcionites at the beginning of the world-wide Christian outreach and the… Full Article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 Siever’s 15 Points

Dear Brother Randy,      It was good of you to reply so quickly. As many NCT people, you are moving on to new discoveries and I trust I shall not lag behind in learning and growing in grace. These are not the tenets I meant but they will do as I need something concrete to go on. I notice that you cannot speak on behalf of the NCT people as a solid movement, which would have helped but I see that you have moved further than many of them. I am still criticised for not formulating NCT principles correctly but when I formulate those of one adherent, the others protest that they believe nothing of the kind. I suppose this goes for most of your friends who hold to various reformed paths who protest when you lump them all together. In future… 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. Gradually, the storm died down and we started to discuss things amiably and calmly. 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’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 up, probably because my old software was incompatible. Amongst these were two letters from Randy Seiver, written on the same day in May entitled ‘Medication’ and ‘Imbecil’ (sic). As I have had nothing to do with Seiver for several years for very good reasons and as Seiver had promised to stop his mobbing and cease sending me his aggressive, vulgar outbursts of unprovoked wrath several times daily and as I had met his arguments full on… Full Article

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 where I stand doctrinally. After all the writing I have been doing for over fifty years, I would have thought they should know as I never beat about the bush as to where I stand. The various doctrines and lack of them they attribute to me are very imaginative. This time, however, getting onto their site was even more difficult. The forms to be filled in were mind-boggling and I did not have the shadow of a chance of… Full Article

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. I do this as he is one of the most out-spoken and less-gentlemanly members of this fraternity and has challenged me to produce scholarship (See his blog ‘George, Let’s talk about scholarship.’) to refute him and not the garbage of a clown which he claims in his blog-site that I deal in. This is not an easy task because of the scornful, insulting remarks with which Seiver… Full Article

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
