Why Christology Matters: A Dialogue Between Anselmus Modernus and Boso Brown

AM:  It’s ok, I wasn’t. But you get my point? I watched you during the hymn after last Sunday’s sermon on Peter’s words about Christ “Though you have not seen him, you love him” (1 Peter 1:8). You looked as if you really meant the words: “My Jesus I love Thee … If ever I loved thee my Jesus ‘tis now.” If we love Him isn’t it important how we describe Him? That’s what Christology is all about.

Answering "Top 50 Questions Christians Can't Answer" (26 through 30)

30 Questions To Ask A Sinner | HeadHeartHand Blog

In  How Do Sinners Help Sinners to Stop Sinning  we began to look at the kind of approaches we need to take when trying to help a sinner stop sinning. Personal experience and the Lord’s dealing with sinners teach us that it’s often better to question than to accuse, at least to begin with. It’s usually more productive if the other person supplies the answers and draws the conclusions rather than us telling them.

For this reason the Expositors Summit is designed to strengthen and instruct preachers and students for the glorious task of expository ministry. You’re invited to join R. Albert Mohler Jr., John MacArthur and H.B. Charles Jr. for the explication of God’s Word and gospel fellowship.

Anomaly by Lecrae

For the typical music fan, Lecrae's hard demeanor and crunk beats might belie what his lyrics are really about, his adoration of Jesus Christ. The main tenet influencing his mission and music is taken from Romans 1:16 of the Bible, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel." Although he was born on Houston's south side, Lecrae grew up in Denver, Colorado, and San Diego, California. It was at the age of 19 that he decided to give his life to Christ. Using conventional methods to spread the Gospel, he has...

The Gospel on Our Sleeves

If I had encouraged others to dress modestly in order to “attract the right kind of guy or girl,” I would be teaching them to dress for themselves, to dress for other people’s attention and affection. If I had encouraged them to dress modestly primarily to “not make other people stumble,” I would be teaching them that other people, rather than God, are the ones for whom we dress. But in our concern over other people’s lust, we neglect to repent from our own self-righteousness, jealousy, unforgiveness, and every other form of self-glorifying, self-satisfying sin. Apart from Christ, our own sin is what would eventually destroy us. The gospel guards our hearts for times when we feel perfectly righteous about how we dress. The gospel exposes our pride, reminding us of the ceaseless work of repentance and our relentless need for grace.

Grace to You

Everything about our Lord was astonishing, excellent, and humanly beyond explanation. It is hard to understand how anyone who witnessed His preaching and miracles, or has even just read about Him in the gospels, can still refuse to accept and obey Him. Some are drawn by His charisma and power, and they marvel at the things He taught and did, but they still take nothing to heart and don’t believe. Sometimes they are willing to call themselves Christians, but they need a commitment that is more than superficial—one that perseveres in faith to the end.

The Bible's a mess, but a designer is fixing it

Although many consider Christianity’s message a thing of beauty, the typical Bible is an ugly thing. Most editions are a mess of numbers, notes, translucent pages, and invariably tiny type. While the traditional arrangement makes for a great reference tool, it's anything but an easy read. Adam Greene, a book designer based in Santa Cruz, California, thinks he can change that with a Kickstarter for a new version of the Bible titled Bibliotheca .

What a Difference Six Years Can Make

2. How can it be discrimination to do what our Vice-President affirmed we should be able to do two elections ago? Again, let’s allow that people can change. Joe Biden now supports gay marriage, when he explicitly did not in 2008. But what about the commitment to let people of faith practice their faith? Religious leaders like Rick Warren of Saddleback and Michael Lindsey of Gordon College are simply asking that faith-based institutions not be punished by the federal government for trying to hire people who affirm and live out their religious principles. Has so much changed in two years or six years that this is now too much to ask?

Trees of the Field: Thoughts on Work

Consider another tree—the oak tree. The fruit of its labor is more than just acorns and wood. A farmer who clears a patch of oak trees from his field creates more space to plant his crops. That, in turn, creates more crops to sell, more food in grocery stores, more money for the farmer, and more opportunities to hire farm hands or fix equipment or send the kids to college or maybe just have a really good time at the local bowling alley.

The Foundation of Christian Joy

In 1993, my wife and I were involved in an historic train wreck. The crash of the Sunset Limited into an inlet from Mobile Bay killed more passengers than any Amtrak accident in history. We survived that eerie accident but not without ongoing trauma. The wreck left my wife with an ongoing anxiety about being able to sleep on a train at night. The wreck left me with a back injury that took fifteen years of treatment and therapy to overcome. Nevertheless, with these scars from the trauma we both learned a profound lesson about the providence of God. Clearly, God’s providence in this case for us was one of benign benevolence. It also illustrated to us an unforgettable sense of the tender mercies of God. In as much as we are convinced that God’s providence is an expression of His absolute sovereignty over all things, I would think that a logical conclusion from such a conviction would be the end of all anxiety.

Survivor of the Worst U.S. Naval Disaster at Sea

About 300 men perished with the ship when two of the six Japanese torpedoes hit and crippled the  Indianapolis . Around 900 initially survived in the water. But in another travesty, no one reported that the ship did not arrived as expected. Over four days these men struggled for life without the aid of lifeboats. They faced dehydration, saltwater poisoning, and exposure that tortured their minds and bodies. Worst were the sharks that prowled their ranks looking to pick off stragglers. After a plane that wasn't even looking for them miraculously spotted the survivors, 317 men were saved not long before all would have likewise perished in what was already the worst naval disaster in U.S. history.

Stand to Reason | Is There Any Evidence for the Soul?

Difference Three: “Temporary Parts” Versus “Transcendent Identity” (The Parts Argument) And there is actually more than one reason that we have this intuitive sense of the transcendent nature of our identity as humans. We also understand this based on the fact that we do NOT lose our identity over time. Let’s do another exercise together. Imagine that you own a beautiful 1972 Volkswagen Bug (just like mine). It is in mint condition and perfect in every way. No dings, no damage; a true collector’s item. Now imagine that your next door neighbor also owns a 1972 VW Bug. What a coincidence. The only difference between the two is that his Bug is a mess. Old and damaged, it doesn’t run and looks like a complete piece of junk. One day as you look out your window, you notice that the front quarter panel on YOUR Bug looks just like the old front quarter panel that used to be on your neighbors Bug! And sure enough, his Bug now has a quarter panel that looks just like yours! It appears as though the panels have been exchanged, one for the other! Now suspend logic a little bit here and imagine that over the next years, each and every day, more and more of your Bug was seen on your neighbor’s Bug, cleanly exchanged for parts from YOUR vehicle! In fact, at the end of the year, the Bug sitting on YOUR driveway looks suspiciously like your NEIGHBOR’S Bug.

How to Defend a Defense of the Faith (with Scripture) - Apologetics Guy

Renewing Your Mind | The End & Purpose of the World | July 23, 2014

And how glorious is that plan? Human hearts would never have crafted it and can’t even conceive of it properly, but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit (1 Cor. 2:9–10). That plan is for the bravest and newest world possible. It will be the bravest possible world because it will be founded on the incomparable courage of Jesus Christ in drinking the cup of God’s wrath for its inhabitants. And none but the brave will enter that new world, for the cowardly will be weeded out (Rev. 21:8), and only those who overcome the world by faith will be granted the right to enter. No bravery will be required to live there, yet it will be a world achieved through the greatest acts of bravery in history. The book of Revelation makes it plain that it is a journey of tribulation, even of bloody martyrdom, that leads to the perfect world, and the willingness of the saints to count their sufferings as not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in them brings the greatest glory to God.

Can We Still Believe the Bible?

Chapter five tackles the complex question of the literary genre of biblical books (or portions thereof) and how that genre affects whether we interpret a given book as symbolic/figurative or as historical narrative. Blomberg addresses the standard texts such as Genesis 1–2, the book of Job, the book of Jonah, and apocalyptic literature like Daniel and Revelation. Looming large over this entire discussion is the recent controversy over Michael Licona’s argument that Matthew 27:52–53—which describes people rising out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection—may have been symbolic and not historical. Of course, the Licona controversy echoes debate in the 1980s over whether Robert Gundry’s view of Matthew as Midrash (which entailed rejection of many portions of Matthew as unhistorical) was a violation of inerrancy. Blomberg rightly cautions the evangelical community to not be so quick to declare something a violation of inerrancy when it may just be a difference of opinion about what literary genre we’re reading. For instance, we wouldn’t want to say that one who takes the days of Genesis as symbolic is in violation of inerrancy.

Pastor Ed Young Says 'We're All Big Hypocrites,' But There's Hope

Is Natural Selection Like a Computer Algorithm?

The obvious problem with this line of thinking is that evolution has no algorithm! By definition, it is aimless, unguided, and mindless -- unlike an economist, statistician, or computer scientist. Like the playground voices compared to stellar spectra, any similarities will surely be swamped by more important differences. We also see that the commenters assume natural selection created all the "astonishing diversity of complex adaptations" in the living world, forcing them to try to fit an intelligent-design algorithm on what they believe originated by chance. Here's how Chastain et al . commit the same question-begging error:

Is God’s Word Enough?

Lizzy – Okay I understand what you’re saying. That was my default approach to interpreting it as well, but I’ve heard it taught by people, who claim to hold to Sola Scriptura, as being reflective of how God builds His kingdom still today. As if to say there are still people around today hearing directly from the Holy Spirit audibly or prophesying apart from Scripture. They would say they check what they hear against Scripture, but it seems like there’s some kind of, what Kevin seemed to be talking about, more sensational aspect to being in relationship with Christ. It makes me feel as if praying and reading my Bible isn’t enough. That merely reading and understanding the Word is good, but it’s more of a ‘fleshly’ way that is compared to ‘religion’ where as this direct one on one audible conversations and revelation are of ‘the Spirit’ and are ‘relationship-based.’

Defending Tony Dungy’s Right to Have an Opinion

I had an opportunity to interview Dungy a few years ago and found him to be humble, gracious, and soft-spoken—exactly the kind of coach I would want my kid playing for. He's not perfect—just a sinner like you and me and Dan Wetzel and Michael Sam. But Dungy is the kind of coach I would want to play for in that he seemed to treat every human in his orbit with a lot of respect and grace. I don’t have to tell you how rare this is in football. Dignity can sometimes be in short supply. That’s why I’m defending him (in a small way), but in a larger way defending his right to have an opinion.

Coming Alongside Filipino Pastors

Christians in this densely packed region, though largely conservative in beliefs, struggle to know their true identity in Christ. Impoverished conditions in greater Manila seem to have yielded ground for a false gospel, one that offers the allure of temporary satisfaction, an exchange of the Creator for the created.

A First Glimpse at ‘Look at the Book’

Without circling things, and underlining, and drawing lines, and making notes, and doodling in the margins, and making connections, and marking repetitions, I would be utterly adrift in a biblical text. My mind is a muddle until I make the muddle visible on paper, and then begin to sort it out with the pencil.

37 Is Colossians 2:8 a Warning against Philosophy? - Christian Research Institute

In a similar manner, Mormons, who believe that God has a physical body, reject the orthodox position that God is an incorporeal (i.e., nonphysical) being as an unfortunate early intrusion of Plato’s philosophy that the soul is more “real” than the body. Barry Bickmore, a Mormon apologist, believes this idea was introduced to the church by Greek converts to Christianity as a means of making Christianity more palatable to the Hellenistic (i.e., Greek) world: “The temptation is always there to make one’s faith more popular by ‘modernizing’ it, but the Apostle Paul had warned against exactly this kind of thing: ‘Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit’ (Col.2:8).” 1

Dispatches from the Front

Few things fuel gospel hope more than hearing testimonies of conversion, and in this book you will read dozens of such stories. You will hear of men and women who once worshiped false gods now bowing their knee to the only true God. You will read of some who persecuted Christians with vitriol who are now worshiping with their new brothers and sisters. You will meet prisoners, KGB agents, imams, wealthy men with power, and marginalized women with nothing of their own—all transformed by the unstoppable, boundary-shattering power of the good news.

Demi Lovato: 'A Loving God Would Never Condemn Anyone for Loving Another Human of the Same Sex'

"I grew up learning in Sunday school and bible camps about a God who loves all no matter where you came from or what you've done.

A Commentary on Sin

The Bible teaches that sin is the problem, that each human being is born with a selfish heart. Sin causes us to desire ugly things, say hurtful things, and do wicked things. For the Christian, sin is a life-altering reality; even though we've been declared positionally righteous, we're still functionally infected.

Alumni Academy | Summer

Jesus’ final words to his first-century disciples were “go, make disciples of all nations…” (Matthew 28.18-20).  Twenty-first century churches carry the same mission, sent as Jesus was sent to be a witness to the gospel among billions around the globe.  How, though, can a local church and individual believers fully embrace the Great Commission call to intercultural evangelism, discipleship, and church planting?  How can we do missions well?
