The Economy of God (I)

In light of my last three posts on the erroneous doctrine of heaven being the goal of believers, I figured this would be a good follow up post. Unfortunately, proving false the doctrine of heaven as the believer's future dwelling place tends to leave Christians¬†distraught and without a hope or goal in life. I'd like... Continue Reading →

Becoming What He Is

In my last post, I wrote about the doctrine of deification and it's pervading presence in the Bible and church history. Now I'd like to mark some particular aspects of God and who He is in His nature that He so graciously allows us to share in. Life "Jesus said to him, 'I am the... Continue Reading →

The Bible... Continue Reading →
