The Essentials

What Christian doctrines are non-negotiable?  What aspects of theology are so central that to deny them is to bring into question a person’s salvation?

The Trinity

An (appropriately) three part series that corrects misunderstandings of the Trinity, and shows that this vital Christian doctrine is clearly taught in Scripture.  We then follow with articles refuting critics who deny one or more persons of the Trinity.

The Bible

A collection of articles on the Bible – how we got it, how we know it has been accurately transmitted and translated, how we got the right books in it, and how we know that the Bible is the Word of God.

Articles on the Christian view of government and political involvement.  How should Christians vote?  Does the government have any obligation to obey God’s laws?  The Bible does answer these questions.


Articles separating fact from fiction by searching the Scriptures on this highly importantly topic.

Christian Cults

A Christian cult is any organization that professes to be Christian by also denies one or more essential Christian docrines.
