    The Consistency of God's Purposes

    19/10/2020 Duración: 51min

    Introduction--God's plans NEVER change. -In the realm of men, there are some who claim perfect success because they continually redefine what they were looking to accomplish. If they fall short, if they fail, they simply LIE about what they were aiming at in the first place. They move the goalposts. They redefine their original intentions. The REALITY of success is not as important to them as the APPEARANCE of success. This happens REGULARLY in politics. -God not only has no desire for such redefinitions, HE HAS NO NEED.-His plans never need redefinition, or adjustment.-WHY--Because everything that He purposes, He remains committed to, and He has all the wisdom, and power, and authority, necessary to accomplish it. AND He does indeed accomplish it.-It is because this is true, that the revelation of God's plans in the Old Testament remain perfectly consistent in the New Testament.-God never declares something in the Old Testament -in the form of promise or the expression of purpose- and then adjusts it in the

  • How To Accurately Apply The Scriptures

    How To Accurately Apply The Scriptures

    16/10/2020 Duración: 10min

    How can we understand and apply the Scripture to our lives- Can we take any biblical passage or verse and accurately apply them to our particular situations- Can we use and apply verses of Scripture that don't seem to apply to us today-- -This week on the Straight Truth Podcast, Dr. Richard Caldwell and host, Dr. Josh Philpot, discuss how to rightly go about dividing the Word of God, that we may properly apply it to our lives today. Dr. Caldwell tells us we can take any principle from any text of Scripture and make some application of the principle. However, if we haven't considered the original context of the passage, then we haven't even understood the principle correctly.

    Introduction--This morning's sermon deals with an issue in the 19th verse that is incredibly important.-Like almost any doctrine we might consider, the implications for the doctrine expressed in this verse are multiple. They are highly consequential.-Remember how we come to this 19th verse.-The question raised earlier is how God's purpose can be the grounds for Christian security, when it appears that perhaps God's purposes have failed regarding the nation Israel. If God keeps His promises, if His purposes prove effectual, then how does one explain the current lost condition of most Israelites-

  • New Revelation

    New Revelation

    09/10/2020 Duración: 08min

    This week on the Straight Truth Podcast, host Dr. Josh Philpot reminds us that in a recent podcast, he and Dr. Richard Caldwell have spoken about the canon of Scripture. Dr. Caldwell shared that the Scriptures were completed about 90 A.D. in the writing of the book of Revelation by the Apostle John. That was about 2000 years ago. Today we often hear people say that they were inspired by God and others that say they have received revelation from God. --They say they have received this revelation by way of visions, dreams, or in other sorts of ways. Dr. Philpot says since God's revelation of the Scriptures came to an end with the complete canon, now compiled in our Bibles, does God go on giving revelation beyond that- Does God give special, extra, additional, or even new revelation to individuals or groups for further enlightenment or a higher way of living for Him-

    Does God speak audibly- Does God speak to individuals and tell people things today as He did during the days of the Bible- Is God speaking audibly to His people today---This week on the Straight Truth Podcast, Dr. Richard Caldwell and host, Dr. Josh Philpot, discuss how God has spoken in the past and how He goes on speaking to people today.

    The Freedom of God's Will

    A theodicy is a defense of God's actions. -The claim is that God has done something wrong. -The claim is that God has done something that does not add up to good or does not add up to justice. -A theodicy is an answer to such a claim. It is a vindication of God's character. It is a demonstration, a defense, that shows that the claim is false.-Romans chapter 9 represents such a defense. -Paul raises a question -has the Word of God failed-, answers the question, and then anticipates a false claim based on a true answer, and then answers that false claim with a defense of God's character.-HE DOES NOT DO THIS OUT OF ACADEMIC INTEREST. This is not just theoretical for Paul.-These are the very questions, and objections, and accusations, that Paul dealt with in his ministry.-And as I look at this theodicy, a couple of things stand out to me at the very outset. One of these I have mentioned many times before, but it bears repeating.

    Is it right for a Christian to go to court against the government?

    25/09/2020 Duración: 08min

    This week on the Straight Truth Podcast, a listener asks if it is right for a Christian to go to court- 1 Corinthian 6-1-8 seems to say that Christians ought not to go court to work out their grievances. The listener writes and asks specifically about John MacArthur -MacArthur- and Grace Community Church -GCC-, going to court and suing L.A. County. They want to know if this sort of thing conflicts with the directions given by the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 6-1-8. Or does it not apply because the grievance is not against another believer-

  • The True Israel

    The True Israel

    21/09/2020 Duración: 47min

    Introduction--The intense sorrow that Paul knows over the lostness of the Jewish people, was not just personal, it was theological.-God related Himself to this people by covenant. To them belonged great privilege, as Paul noted in the first 5 verses.-As unbelievable as it was, this people who had been given so much, had crucified their Messiah.-This is what Peter preached on the day of Pentecost. He preached that ISRAEL needed to recognize their error.-ESV Acts 2-36 Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified.--This is the same witness that Peter and John gave when they were called before the council for healing a man in Jesus name.-ESV Acts 4- 5 On the next day their rulers and elders and scribes gathered together in Jerusalem, 6 with Annas the high priest and Caiaphas and John and Alexander, and all who were of the high-priestly family. 7 And when they had set them in the midst, they inquired, -By what power or by what name

    Paul's Burden & Ours

    21/09/2020 Duración: 59min

    Introduction--New life in Jesus Christ means new burdens. Far from the Christian life meaning no cares, no stresses, no difficulties, it in fact means a new set of cares, added stresses, added difficulties. -Without question, our life represents burdens lifted.-There is the sweet knowledge of the forgiveness of our sins. -There is the new fellowship that we know with God. -There is a peace, a supernatural peace, that belongs only to those who are saved. -The kind of difficulty we knew in our lostness is sweetly replaced by a kind of difficulty that you only know in salvation.-One of those difficulties is a brand-new concern for the souls of the people you love. -Romans 8 ends on the emotional high of security. Romans 9 reminds us that we aren't just concerned for ourselves, we are concerned for others.-You know a new concern for all lost people. But there is a special aching, an informed aching, for the people who belong to your own clan. -A new burden for your immediate family, for your extended family, and

    Has God created people knowing that they will be damned- If God creates someone knowing that they will be damned, why does He create them at all- Isn't this unjust of God to create people who will be damned to hell for eternity---Is it just, is it right for God to create people knowing that they will become sinners and stay sinners- Eventually, thus to be penalized and committed to eternal damnation and hell- This is the question raised for discussion on this episode of the Straight Truth Podcast. Dr. Josh Philpot presents this question to Dr. Richard Caldwell and asks if it is just for God to do this sort of thing.

  • A Believers Response to Gods Amazing Grace

    A Believer's Response to God's Amazing Grace

    13/09/2020 Duración: 54min

    Introduction--Last Lord's Day evening I mentioned how the doctrines of grace, after troubling our hearts initially, can become sweet to our hearts.-Some of this transformation can be explained by maturity, but it is also explained by humble submission.-To speculate in the realm of theology is neither productive nor safe. Pride is not only willing to disagree with Scripture- it finds it very hard to confine itself to Scripture.--Well, here is what I think.- -Here is what I believe.- -Here is my take on that.- That is the language of pride whenever it finds itself at odds with Scripture. To tell me what you think when Scripture hasn't spoken to something is one thing, to tell me what you think IN OPPOSITION to Scripture, is another.-To stop short of believing all that God has revealed about Himself, and about what He has done, is sinful, and it is self-destructive.-Humility not only disciplines itself to think in terms of what God has revealed, it chooses to delight in all that God has revealed. It chooses to d

  • Do I Have Free Will In Salvation?

    Do I Have Free Will In Salvation?

    10/09/2020 Duración: 07min

    This week on the Straight Truth Podcast, Dr. Richard Caldwell and host Dr. Josh Philpot discuss free will as it pertains to salvation in Christ, decision making, and choosing in general. Do we as fallen men and women choose God, do we contribute to our salvation- How does free will work with what the New Testament teaches about God pre-ordaining all things, predestination, and election- Do we have free will to decide and choose for ourselves---Dr. Caldwell first explains that we do not contribute anything to our salvation. The faith that takes hold of God's promise in Christ is not something that we were born with- no one is born a believer. Salvation comes about as a result of the new birth, or regeneration that Jesus speaks of with Nicodemus in John 3. Jesus explains that apart from the new birth, no one can see or enter the Kingdom of God. Ephesians chapter 2 teaches that everything about our salvation, even the faith brings salvation, is a gift from God.

    To whom do Christians pray- Are we praying to the Trinity, to Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit- Is there a way that our prayers are to be structured- Is the Lord's prayer an example for us to think rightly about prayer- How should a Christian go about their prayers, is there a specific way---This week on the Straight Truth Podcast, Dr. Richard Caldwell and host Dr. Josh Philpot discuss these questions and more as they speak about prayer in the life of believers. Jesus' disciples recognized the importance of prayer and desired for Him to teach them how to pray.
