Treasure in Earthen Vessels
About the Book
Treasure in Earthen Vessels: The Local Church: Has It Failed to Obey Matthew 28:20? This book has been written to strengthen and enlarge the faith of Christians by teaching them the truth while exposing the traditions of the elders found in Reformed, Reformed Baptist, Protestant, and Baptist Church circles.
It examines a number of current issues like transgender identity, homosexuality, gravitational waves from LIGO, The Passion of the Christ by Mel Gibson, and long hair, clothing, and women.
It sets forth what the Bible teaches about limited atonement, resurrection, baptism, confirmation, the scourging of Jesus, Judas, prophecy, prophesying, and prophets.
It comforts Christians by directing their thoughts away from false laws to the law of Christ.
It challenges Christians to hold fast the gospel of Jesus, to follow only biblical truth, and to realize that truth surfaces from a close inspection of many similar verses with the same key word.
It reproduces and updates a nineteenth century work by William Kay, who makes an excellent case for Paul being the author of Hebrews. He uses a lot of Greek to win over those who deny, using secondhand arguments that Paul is the true and only author of this book.
