ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Can We Enjoy Heaven Knowing Loved Ones Are in Hell? – “Heaven is far too perfect, far too sinless, far too other for us to imagine in our fallen minds. Our attempts to put brush to canvas have led to depictions of cherubs on clouds, idyllic colors of dawn, Christ as a blinding light, a faceless adoring throng. Some of these attempts to capture heaven’s splendors are beautiful and even captivating, yet we know they are also incomplete. They are, at best, the barest reflection of what awaits. Our imaginations must always fall short of heaven’s glorious perfections.” The Consequences of an Easy Gospel – “A … Read More

Whether it is the ‘seeker-sensitive’ movement in churches, contextualization in Muslim-dominated countries, or reinterpreting the Bible’s teachings on marriage or creation, people often seem to want to make the Gospel as inoffensive as possible.” Are You One of Jesus’ Sheep? (Part 5) – “In contrast to the sheep recognizing the voice of the Shepherd, here we see that they do not recognize the voice of a stranger.

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) The Most Difficult Funerals (Suicide) – “Over the years I have read several books and articles intended to help pastors who are called upon to preach at a ‘difficult funeral.’ While most pastors will confess that all funerals are difficult in their own way, there are certainly a variety of funerals that are particularly emotional and stressful – such as the death of a child, the traffic-accident victim, the young parent, or the crime victim.

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.
