Men on the run
During the Sinn Fein/IRA terrorist campaign, which has been replaced by a more subtle scheme whereby, having obtained their goal of political power, they now use that power to pursue the objectives they formerly sought by terror and murder, the term OTR referred to IRA killers “on the run” from the law and the just desserts it would mete out to them. Since the commencement of the power-sharing deal between the DUP and Sinn Fein/IRA, the term has fallen out of use, since part of that deal included a virtual amnesty for all republican terrorists. However, there is another use for it that has arisen within the confines of the Church of Christ – ministers “on the run” from their duty before God in this evil day. Read more…
What a Difference Six Months Does Not Make!
Attention readers! – The programme above has been removed from the SermonAudio site because of its criticism of Dr Joel Beeke’s compromise and of his disobedience of the Word of God regarding his fellowship and associations with men who teach error. SermonAudio states that the programme has been removed because it is contrary to its unwritten policy forbidding broadcasters to criticise other broadcasters. However, it is plain that this policy has not been consistently applied since there are quite a number of sermons on the site which contain critical comment of other broadcasters.
Such a policy is in conflict with the duties of a faithful man of God who is required to “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints,” Jude 1:3, KJV. This duty must be fulfilled, irrespective of the cost. We would urge readers to courteously contact SermonAudio regarding this matter at email@example.com
We believe that there is something more behind this removal of the HOM programme. It seems to have touched a particular nerve! Time will doubtless tell! You may listen to the broadcast which has been removed by using the audio player link below.

Joel Beeke’s Involvement with Refo500, ETS, and WRF by Ralph Ovadal, pastor of Pilgrims Covenant Church, Monroe, Wisconsin
As I take pen in hand to write this article, I do it with the fervent hope that it will be the last time I address the issue which is the subject of this report. I write now only because circumstances dictate that to not write would be to leave a duty partially undone, given certain developments of the last six months. What follows is anything but a “hit piece.” Rather, it is a simple setting forth of very public information which is of very great importance to the spiritual welfare of the Lord’s own people. The facts shared in this report are as they were meticulously documented at the time this article was written.
On the May 20, 2011 edition of the Heart of the Matter program, my guest Rev. Ivan Foster and I voiced our concerns about the very influential Dr. Joel Beeke yoking in preaching fellowship with the charismatic, deeply compromised John Piper as a guest speaker at Piper’s 2011 “Conference for Pastors.” Then on the June 15, 2012 edition of HOM, I did a report on a Roman Catholic-Protestant ecumenical consortium called Refo500. And when I say “Protestant,” I am using the term in the broadest way imaginable! For instance, as I reported in the course of that HOM program, Refo500 partner organizations which are apostate Protestant include, among others, Fuller Theological Seminary (Richard Mouw, president), Beeson Divinity School (Timothy George, dean), and the Remonstrant Church which openly denies essential doctrines of the true faith and just as openly boasts of being “the first church in the world to open marriage for same-sex couples” and “one of the first churches in the Netherlands to ordain women as ministers.” During the course of that June 15, 2012 HOM report, I documented the deep involvement of two Reformed ministers, Dr. Albert Mohler and Dr. Joel Beeke, in Refo500.

The rise and fall of amillennialism
For the first two and a half centuries Pre-Millennialism was the universal doctrine of the Church as it had been of the Apostles. No other doctrine was so much as known, far less received. A-Millennialism was not heard of in the Church during this period. In the third century, however, Origen promulgated his false teaching. He contended that practically all Scripture; historic as well as prophetic, was allegorical and should be understood in a figurative sense with an underlying esoteric meaning, seen only by the initiated. He not only regarded the Revelation as mythical but also the records of Creation in the first two chapters of Genesis. He taught that the fires of hell were purgatorial and that the whole human race would eventually be saved and brought to glory. Read more…
