    "The Poor Doubting Christian Drawn to Christ" by Thomas Hooker (1586-1647) Do you have a full and unwavering assurance of salvation? Do you ever wonder if you are truly saved? Or if you are self-deceived? Do you experience Christ’s consolation to you in his love? This is a classic work, most...

    What was the Old Testament way of salvation?

    We know that, in the New Testament era, salvation comes by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus is the way but, before Christ, what was the way? We definitely can't say the Jews were saved by the law. I usually go about arguing the position looking at Paul's quote of Habakkuk in Galatians...

    Revisted: Is belief in the Trinity... necesary for salvation

    Part of the reason I joined the PB was to seek a sound response to the question "Is belief in the Trinity-specifically the 3 persons of God-neccesary for salvation?". I searched and found a similar thread already that existed and I didnt ever end up seeing a response (I just ended up seeing...

    Do baptized infants go to heaven? do unbaptized infants or adults go to hell?

    I've been having a discussion on facebook with someone who said that he would rush a dying infant to be baptized. He also stated that Mark 16:16 indicates that you must believe and be baptized or be condemned to hell. I don't believe baptism saves your nor do I believe that not being baptized...

    John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me John 10:3-5 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him...

    Prayer and Time

    Do you think that God considers prayers about events that have already happened but about which you don't know the outcome? Say for example a friend was to take an exam at 5 pm today. If I prayed that he would do well on the exam tomorrow, would that prayer potentially have an effect on the...

    Assurance and faith, a package deal?

    I have written an article entitled "Assurance and faith, a package deal?" in which I assert that modern zealots confuse the two and lump them together. Imagine my disappointment when last month I heard this statement in a sermon--"The Bible says that if you're saved you'll know it."...
