ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) For the Bible Tells Me So: Biblical Authority Denied … Again – “‘Jesus loves me — this I know, for the Bible tells me so.’ This is a childish error? Evangelical Christianity has a big problem, says Andy Stanley, and that problem is a reliance on the Bible that is both unwarranted and unhelpful. In a recent message delivered at North Point Community Church and posted online, Stanley identifies the evangelical impulse to turn to the Bible in our defense and presentation of Christianity as a huge blunder that must be corrected.” Why Not to Have a Woman Preach – “The specific question on the table is … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) One Very Good Reason to Read Your Bible – “There are some proverbs that practically beg for personal application. Proverbs 3:27 is one of them: ‘Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.’ That little maxim resonates in a hundred other passages including, of course, the Golden Rule and the second Great Commandment: ‘Whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’ Taken together, they reinforce the Bible’s clear emphasis on doing good to others, on living in such a way that we are … Read More

Book Review: “We Cannot Be Silent” by Albert Mohler

Nate PickowiczBook Reviews, Christianity1 Comment

“We cannot be silent, and we cannot join the moral revolution that stands in direct opposition to what we believe the Creator has designed, given, and intended for us.” – Albert Mohler have said before that I believe Albert Mohler to be the Carl F.H. Henry of this generation. This is not mere flattery, rather, it is because of Mohler’s keen ability to discern the cultural issues facing the church and provide a sound diagnosis and the appropriate response.

We are dealing with a shifting cultural landscape virtually unparalleled in the history of modern civilization, and Dr. Mohler tackles that … Read More

Is Homosexual Affirmation an Inevitability for Andy Stanley?

ack in 2012, I was not too familiar with pastor Andy Stanley of North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Georgia. I was, however, familiar with his father, pastor Charles Stanley of FBC Atlanta. In fact, I had bought several of the elder Stanley’s books. Some minor disagreements aside, I have always viewed him as a faithful teacher and preacher. I mistakenly expected the same faithfulness to God’s Word from his son. It took me by surprise when in April 2012, Andy Stanley delivered his “When Gracie Met Truthy” sermon.  From the Christian Post:

Feel Like You’re Not Hearing From God? This May Be Why…

James 1:21  “Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.” f you’re a practicing or former Evangelical Christian, I have no doubt you’ve heard someone utter the prayer, “Please, God, speak to me!  Let me know what it is you want for my life.”
