“Sovereign Jesus” is a site which takes issue with some false ideas and views of Christianity in circulation, both inside and outside the Church. The most convincing lies are those which contain much truth, and make much use of scripture. Such deception causes some Christians to be side-tracked and lost in confusion and error, and others to even abandon Christ altogether. It can also deter unbelievers from taking Christianity seriously as the fake is all too evident to them.
Many people have picked up distorted ideas of what Christianity is from TV shows and popular books which purport to explain various aspects of or about Christianity; but most of the “experts” who “explain” it for us, although having high academic qualifications, don’t really believe or accept the Bible as authoritative and accurate; so they explain away the miraculous, deny that the authors of scripture were really the authors, deny that certain books should even be in the Bible, and seek to undermine and change our whole understanding of scripture by perverting and reinterpreting it to suit their unbelieving and unbiblical theology.
The apostle Paul warns “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ” (Col 2:8 NRSV).
There are here many positive articles which teach, encourage, and edify, and others which have been taken from books or websites. And then there are items and snippets which are just plain interesting which I’ve come across in books no longer in print, and which are too precious to lose. By putting them on my website I hope to preserve them and give them to the public again, giving them a new lease of life for a new audience. “And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds” (Heb 10:24 NRSV).

“(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (2 Cor 10:4 KJV).
