Yes, Jesus Died For That Person

I was in line, ready to order a sandwich from one of my favorite eating establishments. There were several people in line in front of me. The line was slow moving because of a fellow who kept dominating the place by complaining about his meal. His fries were cold (though they’d been taken right out of […]

God Is Not A Listkeeper

In John 1, we discocver that when the Baptizer saw Jesus he said:  “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes way the SIN of the world!”  This sermon, preached at the Patterson Avenue Baptist Church, Richmond, VA – January 16, 2011, explores what it means to know that human SIN has been taken away by Christ.

Your God Isn’t Angry With You

In a recent post (What Happened At The Cross? –  http://nieporte.name/?p=1017) I stated my conviction that the “penal substitution” view of atonement was not generated from within the scripture, but imposed upon it from the outside.  I also stated, from my viewpoint as a Trinitarian, that such a view gave God something of a multiple-personality […]

What Happened At The Cross?

I am passionate about biblical theology.  That means I often get in trouble with some people who have heard all their lives that some doctrine they believe is biblical (from their pastor, parents, Sunday School teacher, best buddy, etc.) when, in fact, it is not really biblical at all. Take, example, those who advocate the […]
