ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Russell Moore’s Tectonic Plates – “So I watched Russell Moore’s Erasmus Lecture for First Things, which you can see here, and there are many things to say about it. But many of them are, truth be told, positive, and so I would like to begin with that. His talk was informed, learned, thoughtful, insightful, and balanced. I would want to specially emphasize that last word, balanced.” The Evangelical Case for Voting for David Duke – “Some of my good Christian friends in the state of Louisiana have told me they cannot vote in good conscience for David Duke in this fall’s senate election. As they consider … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs: Putting the Next 10 Popular Church Songs to the Test – “According to Mark Dever’s ministry 9 Marks, there is a distinct difference between a song that is written for the purpose of congregational worship, and a song that is written as a performance piece. ‘Performance music can focus our attention on the performers, or even the music, rather than God’ and it can ‘wrongly encourage a culture of passivity and entertainment.’” Social Media and Christian Discernment – “Almost overnight, the budding world of social media has revolutionized the way our culture communicates. Even our vocabulary has been affected. Suddenly, people … 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

Anniversary: We Turned Two!

Landon ChapmanChristianity, Personal1 Comment

ast year I commented on my amazement of what can happen in merely a year’s time.  That amazement remains as this site turned two years old last Friday!  Rest assured, this will not be an annual posting but I felt it pertinent to write another anniversary article due to the fact that so much has changed this past year.  Further, it seems as though God continues to bless this ministry and for that, I am both grateful and humbled. I intend to keep this post pithy, which is against every fiber of my being, so I’m going to simply make a list of the things that happened this year and add a brief comment:

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Does Ken Ham Embrace Evolution? – “Kenneth Keathley is a professor of theology at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, and an old-earth creationist who has been challenging young-earth creation for as long as I have known him. I appreciate the interactions that I’ve had with Professor Keathley in the past, and he comes across as a winsome and kind brother in Christ. Unfortunately, his recent blog on AiG’s position on speciation does not meet the standard of professionalism, scholarship, and charitable behavior toward a fellow brother in Christ.” ICWA, Lexi, and the worst of American history – “Today I want to give a summary of the foster … Read More

Book Review: “Judge Not” by Todd Friel

Landon ChapmanBook Reviews, Christianity6 Comments

“If we love God, people, and false teachers, we will name names as if eternity depended on it. Because it does. Not naming names has to stop.”  – Todd Friel rguably, the most misconstrued axiom in all Christendom is that which is born of Matthew 7:1 which reads, ““Judge not, that you be not judged.”  While one might expect an unbeliever to foolishly extricate this verse from its context in order to bludgeon Christians, which happens regularly, one might not expect professing Christians to wield this foolhardy hammer so regularly and zealously against their brethren.  Tragically, as the American church has grown increasingly nonsensical and irreverent, Biblical illiteracy has increased in lock-step with the silliness. Poor exegesis and deceptive teachings … Read More

The Truth, The Whole Truth, and Nothing But the Truth

Exodus 20:26  “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” he title of this post is borrowed from chapter nine of Dr. Albert Mohler’s excellent treatment of the Ten Commandments, Words From the Fire.  Mohler makes the case that the worst possible lie we can tell is about God.  If our theology is wrong we are, in essence, lying about God. As we think about our responsibilities as it relates to the Ninth Commandment, we understand that not only should we not bear false witness against God, but we also should refrain from bearing false witness against our neighbor.  In the broader sense, the Ninth Commandment forbids lying, but the primary focus of the commandment is witness.  Consider question 112 … Read More
