In the midst of the raging debates, the waters of truth have become murky. This site aims to help clear the waters through a simple, down-to-earth, presentation of the truth in God's word.
There used to be a number of articles on this site on the topic of election, but the amount of material was too much to be comfortably read on a website. So a bulk of the material has now been published in book format. I have retained a few of the articles on this site, but much of the supporting logic has been moved to the book. If you click on the link for election below, you will be taken to a summary of the conclusions developed in the book and pointers on where to purchase it.
The link to sovereignty will take you to a few articles that explore the topic of God’s sovereignty as we find it in Scripture. It may be that someday I will compile this material in a book as well.
I have also included a link that presents some background in how I approach Biblical word studies. There is a little known tool that has greatly enhanced my word studies, but I rarely see anyone else applying it. The articles behind this link will give more detail on the tool and explain its value.
I hope the things herein will be a blessing and help to the people of God.
