Jonah: You Can't Outrun Grace

Jonah is a short, bizarre and powerful book. We don’t learn a lot about the prophet Jonah or hear any prophecy from him. But Paul Tripp is deeply persuaded that every element of a biblical worldview is embedded in these 48 verses. Now, the point of Jonah is not for you to intellectually know every element of a Biblical worldview. We don't have a problem with our informational theology, where we fall apart is in our functional theology. Our problem is that we don’t live the theology we claim to believe. We know a lot of facts about God and the Bible but have not been transformed by it.

Televangelist Ernest Angley Ordered to Pay $388K for Using Coerced Church Labor for Buffet Business

Angley and the restaurant argue that they did nothing wrong  and that the government had violated the First Amendment. Half of the money they were ordered to pay will go toward back wages, while the other half will be paid as damages, as the judge determined Angley and the buffet acted in "bad faith" by reverting back to using unpaid labor.

5 things we learned this week - Premier

An Easter lunch shopping basket costs 11% less than last year, with all items except for hot cross buns dropping in price, according to an annual survey. Good Housekeeping's annual Easter shopping basket price index found consumers can feed eight people for lunch, including serving a leg of lamb, prosecco and chocolate, for £21.07 or £2.63 per head, if they are prepared to shop around. Last year's cheapest basket cost £2.96 per head. Lidl was the cheapest supermarket for buying the entire list based on prices effective from April 14, costing £23.22, followed by Aldi (£23.43), Tesco (£29.89), Iceland (£33.17) and Waitrose (£39.18).

‘Get Out’ Locks Our Gaze on Racism's Horror

Indeed, laughter and screaming are frequently indistinguishable in black comedy and satire, comic sensibilities that are very familiar to horror fans. Think of the moral force of Jonathan Swift’s icy satire, “A Modest Proposal,” which famously recommended that poor Irish families supplement their meager incomes by selling their children as a particularly exotic form of cuisine to the nation’s wealthiest citizens. Though it may seem like a long way from Swift to a contemporary horror film, I’d argue that few stories address the subject of racism with the force and moral urgency of Get Out .

I’ll be posting once per month in the series, with remaining posts on other subjects.

An FAQ on The Collected Works of John Piper (3 Million Words over 13 volumes + an Index Volume)

The son of a traveling evangelist, John Stephen Piper was born on January 11, 1946, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. That summer, Bob Jones College moved from Cleveland, Tennessee, to Greenville, South Carolina, and the Pipers, who were happy fundamentalists, moved with the school. John graduated from Wade Hampton High School in 1964, and then earned his bachelor’s degree from Wheaton College (1964-1968), his divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary (1968-1971), and his doctorate from the University of Munich (1971-1974). For the next six years, he taught biblical studies at Bethel College in St. Paul, Minnesota (1974-1980), before becoming senior pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota (1980-2013).

His work in the Congo is a legacy of who we are as human beings, as Mennonites, and Christian disciples.”

4 Ways to Invite God into Your Planning Meetings

I try to designate time in meetings to reflect on our motives. Each team will have to discover the best way to do this together. Not every ministry team setting provides a safe place to share; when one team member calls into question another’s motives, it feels like an accusation. Still, I’ve found it helpful to spend time discerning motives, whether or not we share them. In many ways, it’s my role as a leader to discover my motives, to model transparency on the team, and to invite others to learn their own hidden motives. With our motives identified, we can invite God to shape them and challenge them if necessary.

Quest for Truth: Lee Strobel on The Case for Christ Movie

I had little hope when I first wrote the book, honestly, because the rap back then in the late 1990s was that books on apologetics or Christian evidence for the faith don’t sell. They took a flier and we did the book. I sort of likened it to Wrigley Field with the Chicago Cubs.  At Wrigley Field, if you hit the ball, it’s generally a pop-up and the outfielder catches it. But sometimes you don’t hit the ball any harder, but the wind takes it out onto Waveland Avenue.   I think that’s what God did with this book.  I wrote the book, but the Holy Spirit has taken it out of the park in a way I’d never anticipated. To have it in so many different languages now all around the planet has been a great example of how God takes our meager efforts to serve Him and multiplies them beyond what we could have imagined…

Pence and Prudence

The Washington Post ran a profile of Vice President Mike Pence’s wife, Karen, and lots of people are outraged or repulsed that two Evangelical Christians do things that are fairly normal for Evangelical Christians to do. Specifically, Mike Pence apparently doesn’t dine alone with women or attend events where alcohol is served if his wife doesn’t accompany him. Perhaps this practice started when he was in Congress, a place where many a politician has ruined his marriage and career by not following such rules.

Should Christians Vacation to Religious Shrines?

We are to do everything we do for the glory of God and in the name of Jesus (1 Corinthians 10:31; Colossians 3:17). It is a sign of terrible cultural captivity and spiritual obliviousness if a Christian can go to a shrine of another religion and not feel both the heartbreak at the millions who are deceived by this religion and caution about the supernatural demonic powers of deception. It worked in their religion. All of these things are massively real, and to treat them lightly just because we’re having a vacation is a sign of serious spiritual superficiality. I love Samuel’s question. Here are some questions that I would be asking myself in order to decide where to go, and where not to go, and how to go if I go, and if I must decide whether to go to some shrine at all.

Four Tools to Help You Understand the Hard Sayings of the Bible

One of the reasons why we sweat over getting the hard sayings of the Bible right is because we believe, like Peter, that they hold the words of eternal life. In many ways, wrestling with these hard sayings is a quintessentially evangelical occupation. Since we believe the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, we scrutinize over how every “jot and tittle” is interpreted. The most basic vocation for every Christian is to be a sound exegete of God’s Word. The reason why we care so much about the task of hermeneutics is that we believe correct interpretation of Sacred Writ is essential for faith and practice. Our commitment to the inspiration and authority of the Bible necessitates the careful study, explanation, defense, and application of biblical revelation.

Was Martin Luther an Anti-Semite? | The Stream

Just to add one more thing … the one little that should be added is Luther, all his life, longed that Jews should be converted and join the church. Hitler never wanted Jews to join the Nazi party. That’s the difference between anti-Semitic and anti-Jewish. Luther wasn’t opposed to the Jews because of their blood. He was opposed to the Jews because of their religion. And he wanted them to join the Christian church. If you’re really anti-Semitic, you’re against Jews because of their blood and there’s nothing Jews can do about that. There’s not change they can make to make a difference. You’re absolutely right, Luther’s language should not be defended by us because it’s violent against the Jews. It was not against an ethnic people, as you said, but against a religion that he reacted so sharply.

Without Luther, There Would Be No Bach

It is pure [fiction] that the Pope, bishops, priests, and monks are called the “spiritual estate” while princes, lords, artisans, and farmers are called the “temporal estate.” This is indeed a piece of deceit and hypocrisy. Yet no one need be intimidated by it, and that for this reason: all Christians are truly of the spiritual estate, and there is no difference among them except that of office. . . . We are all consecrated priests by baptism, as St. Peter says: “You are a royal priesthood and a priestly realm” (1 Pet. 2:9). The Apocalypse says: “Thou hast made us to be kings and priests by thy blood” (Rev. 5:9–10).

Persuasive Reasons: Thoughts on Fine-Tuning

Recently, I wrote about what I find as the most persuasive argument (scientifically speaking) for the truth of Christianity . Big bang cosmology reveals a marked correspondence between the biblical description of the universe and our best scientific explanation. The fine-tuning argument ranks second on my list of most persuasive arguments, but only because it has a less-direct connection to the Bible.

The Consequences of Relativism from a Christian Worldview

The origins of relativism in North America and abroad arose from worldviews that worship nature as the ultimate reality, such as evolution, for example. The Roman letter of Paul warns in the very first chapter that any nation that begins to worship the energy, spirits, or processes of nature are in great peril. Paul explains that they becomes senseless in their reasoning and are en route to destruction if they do not turn away from the worship of the creature and creation, rather than the Creator who is blessed forever.
