Declaring the whole counsel of God

"We cannot preach at all without preaching doctrine and the type of religious life which grows up under our preaching will be determined by the nature of the doctrines which we preach."

B. B. Warfield

Here are the details of a conference that I will be speaking at soon:

The next Preaching Today conference will be taking place on October 17th 2009. This will be our 17th conference and we will be holding this at our usual venue of Bethlehem Evangelical Church Aberavon SA12 6NE.

To Martin Downes.
Even though it is commendable to expose a heresy it is showing partiality in a matter of judgment to suppress the truth about one.
In regard to God's counsel and by his judgment it is not possible that a direct or positive benefit can be the outcome for anyone based on any male human's bloodshed. Gen.9:5 NIV, a statement of God by the way, does not allow a salvific to be a true proposition when any male human's bloodshed is explained as a positive benefit. Since the doctrine of substitutionary atonement does teach the opposite of God's stated position it is a heresy also.
