In Hebrews 13:5, we are commanded to resist the love of money and to be content with what we have. And the motive immediately provided for obeying this commandment is the unconditional love of Christ towards his elect.

This sermon was preached at Covenant Bible Church on the Lord’s Day, January 22nd, 2023. “A lame member of the body of Christ, the church… a weak believer; one that is ready to halt, either through the corruption of nature, or through the weakness of grace, or through want of light and judgment, and through instability and inconstancy; lest such …

A few months ago, Pastor Joel Webbon produced an episode of Theology Applied with special guest, Justin Peters, titled “Calling Out False Teachers By Name.” In this episode, Pastor Joel chose NOT to call out certain major leaders in American Evangelicalism who have been pedaling the “woke gospel,” also known as the “social-justice gospel.” Since that time, Pastor Joel has …

Virtually all Old Testament saints experienced some measure of victory, but with much defeat. And all New Testament saints experience some measure of defeat, but with an ever progressing amount of victory throughout the Gospel Age.
