Welcome to Theologia!
Starting as a collection of papers by Mark Horne several years ago, Theologia has slowly expanded to include works by a variety of authors. You will find all of our content under the various categories to the left.
As our motto states, our goal is to provide thought-provoking material that is faithfully Biblical, distinctively Reformed, and comprehensively catholic.

“For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will de declared righteous. ROM.2:13 Paul is not referencing OT law. First degree murder,which the crucifixion of Jesus was, cannot be a direct benefit. The Galatian error is alleging the cross to have been a direct benefit rather than the offense of murder.

many years ago i had just given my life to jesus and was in a great deal of emotional pain and turmoil because my mother had been very verbally abusive to me and i came home and was looking for comfort in the bible-i instead found those words and in my pain cried out to god that this holy spirit as a comfort was a lie because i felt no comfort and was afraid he was rejecting me like my mother had-i was so upset when...

- June 29, 2014 at 11:07 am :: The Tenses of Justification :: Jay
To say with one breath that “works do not justify in their own right since they can never withstand the scrutiny of God’s inspection” and in the next “They are ….causal or instrumental (“means”) in our final salvation” is playing semantics. God’s justification alone, in the punctillar affect, by imputation once and for all is the very sole means of our final salvation. The progressive...
- June 28, 2014 at 6:09 pm :: The Tenses of Justification :: Joe
The fact alone that the penalty of all our sins were paid for in full allows the Holy Spirit to indwell a genuine believer which, unlike the saints under the old covenant, He is able to now seal Himself unto the day of redemption,. This reality is due to the fact that the judgment on the cross has precluded the final judgment by removing the penalty of all sins in a believers life. That’s why there is therefore no...

- March 21, 2014 at 8:19 pm :: Blasphemy Against the Holy Spirit? :: Derrick Vernon
i believe that blasphemy the holy spirit isn’t rejecting Christ and choosing to live their life. I think it has to do with denying the holy spirit when it deals with you and you know its the holy spirit convicting with you but you still deny him. Saying to yourself its not the Holy spirit. the bible says that the spirit of god draws us to him. If we deny that then i believe we are in a reprobate mind...
- March 20, 2014 at 4:36 pm :: Blasphemy Against the Holy Spirit? :: Rev. Grover H. Hunter
Greetings, I write this to all who question what blasphemy again’st the Holy Ghost is or claim this sin can’t be committed today, that only those in Christ time upon the earth could committ that sin. Which is a total lie again’st the word of God. This sin CAN be committed today !!! But for it to be committed a person would most diffently know what they we’re doing by uttering...
- February 26, 2014 at 10:39 pm :: Why Was Jesus Justified? :: pat
Good. We need more men and women that will seek God’s face to leave more undisputed truth on record. The Holy Spirit spoke to my spirit and said, “God Justified Jesus.” I Google this phrase and found you. May God Bless you and keep you. Your Sister in Christ.
- February 11, 2014 at 9:04 am :: On Forgiving Oneself: Nine Reasons Why It Can Be Appropriate :: Stephen John
Hi, I agree with Joseph’s assessment. Forgiving ourselves bypasses God altogether as well as repentance. Some of the most self-righteous , if not sociopathically inclined people can ‘forgive themselves’ and move on regardless of how the other person feels. True Forgiveness will include an action if appropriate by either directly confronting another to share where...

As all ways iam greatfully to be counted amount the living of God and mankind . Think,. death has it value to mankind, The fear of the pain of death is what cause pain in the minds of every living human being from an early age to a very old age of 85 and older.Think of our Lord Jesus Christ death on the cross that day when his father god gave his first child Jesus to save mankind from sin...

The Jews, The Land, God…but Israel confesses that it is RIGHT (a right) to worship ANY ‘god’! The Jews claim the land of Israel because they say it was given to them by God. ….people have died because of this claim …the Jews are using this reason to validate their taking of land. It is written in the “religion” of the Jews that the God of Abraham, of Moses is the One and Only...
