Sunday Morning Praise

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty


  1. I am sorry to say that I am unsubscribing because I have discovered that you are tied to Calvinism/Reformed Theology which is a false gospel I am not Arminian by the way. I have listened to the teaching on "No Compromise Radio" and the Scripture twisting is incredible. One cannot stand for truth and compromise it at the same time with the false gospel of Calvinism. The speakers are snide and snicker at those who may differ. This is another spirit, not the Holy Spirit. This makes me sad and yet at the same time upset to see God's message of salvation distorted like this. It is damaging and counter to the truth. I pray that you will be led into the true Gospel and away from TULIP.

    1. Dear Anonymous,
      Thank you for your comment. Since you were not willing to voice your concerns and accusations under your real name, I cannot be sure how long you have been a subscriber. If it has taken you much time at all, however, to conclude that I hold to the doctrines of grace, then you must not have been paying close attention. I openly hold to those doctrines because they are biblical.

      That said, I took the liberty of passing along your comment to Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio. In his reply, he voiced the same questions that came to my mind when I read your comment. He said,

      Dear Anonymous,

      Thank you for your forthright and brave post. If I may offer a suggestion or two:

      1. Please give a few examples of "twisting" on No Compromise Radio.
      2. Please give scriptural evidence of the errors of Calvinism.
      3. Please tell us what the "true gospel" is.

      Thank you so much!

      We'll be awaiting your response, Anonymous, especially to that last point.
      Thank you again.

  2. Hi Erin, I enjoy the videos you post of great hymns of the faith. So theologically rich compared to a lot of today's shallow modern "Christian" music. Question: I did a search on your site for a man that goes by the name of Trip Lee and found nothing. He's a so-called "rapper-pastor" who was at one time a pastoral intern under Mark Dever (9Marks) at Capitol Hill Baptist Church. He also has vignette on Sproul's Ligoner.org. One of his websites is http://builttobrag.com/. I don't know much about him, but was wondering if you ever looked into his theology and/or influence in the music arena as well as with the younger generations of people who are into rap and hip-hop music. I listened to 15 minutes of one of his "talks" and in that particular one, he used a lot of scripture and I didn't hear any scripture twisting or other red flags. Although he "preached" with a hat on backwards and in clothes that appeal to the younger "hip" culture, a lot like Carl Lentz of Hillsong NYC does. Anyway, just wondering what your perspective on him might be. Maybe a future post topic for you. Thanks!


Please keep it pithy (in other words, if your comment is long enough to be its own blog post, don't bother), pertinent (please don't go off-topic), and respectful (to the author, to the other readers, and to the subject of the post). If you can't do that, your comment will not be posted.

If you haven't already, please read the Comment Policy in its entirety.
