Announcing "Govett on Baptism"!

The Rod: Will God Spare It?


Second Edition, 2003, 458 pgs.

Although it is shocking, the truth concerning the Judgment Seat of Christ presented in this book provides a sufficient answer to the numerous Biblical warnings addressed to the saints.  This alarming doctrine of temporary chastisement ironically protects and magnifies the precious truths of eternal security and salvation through faith alone.  Yet, unlike other modern defenses of eternal security, this teaching provides a much-needed panacea for careless Christianity in these last days.

Pastor J. D. Faust was born in Columbia, South Carolina.  He is currently the pastor of Kingdom Baptist Church in Venus, Texas.  He is the editor of The Kingdom Alert newsletter.
