ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Be a Parent Worthy of Honor – “For a number of weeks, I have been exploring the fifth commandment and, in particular, how adult children are to obey it. ‘Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God commanded you, that your days may be long, and that it may go well with you in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.’ While heeding this command is relatively straightforward to the young child under the authority of his parents, it is much more difficult to know what it entails for adult children. Through this series, we have begun to learn some … Read More

Two direct quotes from Stanley…” Book Review: The Prodigal Church by Jared C. Wilson – “Frankly, the book is so honest, so direct, so revealing, that I couldn’t put it down. I found myself hunched over, highlighter in hand, repeating phrases like, “Yes!” and “Thank you” and “Spot on!” In the end, I can only conclude that this may be one of the most important Christian books in print today. Here’s why…” 5 Best Books I Read in … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs: Putting Popular Church Music to the Test – “When I first came on at First Southern Baptist Church, I was an associate pastor with an emphasis in worship. In other words, I was the worship pastor, which is a title I didn’t much care for. Technically the head teaching pastor is a worship pastor. I still lead the music, leaning mostly toward hymns, but we sing some modern tunes as well. I try to be as careful with the music as I am with the teaching. Regarding the songs we sing, I examine the lyrics but also the writers. Those addressing the … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) The Corruption of God’s Love – “How do we reconcile the concept of a loving God with a fallen world full of evil, suffering, and catastrophe? In scholarly terms, that perplexing issue is known as the problem of theodicy. Silence Is the Wrong Answer.” How Preaching Affects Everything – “I recently had a conversation with a pastor who was developing some training material for pastors in Africa. He had asked me to review the material, and when I asked him why there was such a low emphasis on preaching, he said to me, ‘I don’t buy into this ‘preaching is everything’ mentality.’” Letters to the Editor #23 … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) A Portrait of Faithful Ministry – “Paul’s epistle to the Romans is widely celebrated for its detailed treatment of gospel truth and exhortation to transformed biblical living. It was the section of Scripture that led to Luther’s salvation and lit the fire of reformation in his heart. It’s a book that has been used by God to save, edify, and instruct countless believers throughout the ages.” Peaceful Polemics Online – “Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. This wonderfully pessimistic French phrase roughly translates to “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” It points us to one of the undeniable facts about … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Devotional Theology: God Breathes – “Our struggle today is to sift through the noise we hear. What if God is telling me something and I’m not listening? Or, what if God is trying to tell me something through someone else and I disregard them? What if I’m missing out on knowing God’s will and purpose for my life? What if parts of the Bible aren’t true because man wrote them? Is there a better way to hear from God than through what He has already revealed? Left unanswered, these questions can throw us off track, and we can lose confidence in God and His plan for … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) What the Transgender Bathroom Debate Means For You – “Last night the New York Times reported that the Obama Administration would issue a decree directing every public school in the nation to allow bathroom access on the basis of self-identity, not biological sex. I’m quite aware of the White House’s place in our culture wars, and even I am surprised. If anyone had suggested in 2009 that the new President’s administration would seek to target children’s bathrooms for the sake of transgender ideology, the White house would have ridiculed it as a crazy conspiracy theory. So, for those suggesting that state legislatures seeking to define such … Read More
