ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) John MacArthur’s Ten Crucial Lessons We Must Teach our Children – “Recently as I was reading John Macarthur’s book Brave Dad, I found a section in which He gives ‘Ten Crucial Lessons Every Father Should Teach’. Obviously, MacArthur is known for his expository, verse by verse teaching. But sitting under his preaching for almost ten years I always loved his ‘lists’ many he came up with while sitting at a restaurant writing on napkins. Obviously, it wasn’t the bread and butter of his ministry, neither should it have been, but when you’ve preached through the whole New Testament and know the entire Bible so well, you … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Three Reasons Why You Should Read the Whole Bible in 2017 – “Throughout 2017, we will remember the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. It was during the dark days of the sixteenth century that the light of God’s Word came bursting forth from the dungeons of the Roman Catholic Church. Each year at the end of December, many people choose a reading plan for the upcoming year only to find themselves failing to keep pace as the weeks pass. It may surprise you to know how many people in your church have not read the entire Bible. This year would be a wonderful time to … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Why I don’t watch football any longer – “Football and other sports can be fun as well as a distraction to the Christian life. For me, it has become a distraction that needs more moderation. At the end of this post, you can examine yourself, as to whether or not you’re a sportsaholic.” Would You Rather Have Blood Filled Hands or Beautiful Feet? – “‘Would You Rather…?’ has become a very popular game in the past few years. One of my favorite ‘would you rathers’ of all time is: would you rather have fingers the size of your legs, or legs the size of your fingers? The … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Is the Bible Foundational to Christianity? Engaging with Andy Stanley – “One of the most profound challenges for Christians as we live in an ever-more-hostile world is how to properly defend the faith against the incessant attacks against it.  And these attacks have taken their toll. We have seen far too many casualties over the years as people leave the church because they had doubts or questions that were never answered. It is precisely this issue that is behind Andy Stanley’s recent sermon, ‘The Bible Told Me So’ (preached Aug 28, 2016). Stanley, son of well-known Atlanta pastor, Charles Stanley, is the senior pastor of Northpoint Community … Read More

My friend David Hall (whose church hosts the annual Reformation Worship conference) recently forwarded a fascinating article about it. I share it today so you can learn about a forgotten piece of history.” Why I Will Not Be Preaching the Longer Ending of Mark – “In a few weeks, we will be completing a two year expository study through the Gospel of Mark.

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Assisted Suicide: A Quadriplegic’s Perspective – “Culture is so easily influenced by the entertainment industry. This is why I am sounding an alarm about a very dangerous message in a film released this summer. The movie? Me Before You. I went to see Me Before You the first week it was out. I was curious because the story is about a young man named Will who became paralyzed in a motorcycle accident. The filmmakers did a great job of conveying his emotional struggles in facing a life without use of his hands or legs. As you might expect, Will falls into suicidal despair. That is until his … Read More

Why Galatians is the Best Book in the Bible

Nate PickowiczChristianity, Series: Best Book in the Bible0 Comments

he gospel is always the central focus when we talk about Christianity. And on the horns of any discussion is the question: How can a just God save sinful people? How religious do we have to be to enter heaven? In the face of overwhelming opposition, the apostle Paul answers. This is the most crucial question one can address. In dealing with matters of the gospel, Galatians is the best book in the Bible. Main Themes: Justification by Faith Favorite verses: “But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we have preached to you, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:8) “Nevertheless knowing that a man is not justified by … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Of Gorillas and Men – “A few days ago, Harambe the gorilla was shot by the Cincinatti Zoo after a 4-year-old child accidentally climbed past the fence and enclosures–only to tumble into the moat surrounding the gorilla’s habitat. Sensing that the child’s life was in immediate danger, zoo workers made the prompt decision to shoot and kill the animal. For many reasons this was indeed a tragic incident–not least of which is the fact that silverback gorillas are a regal and endangered species.” The Slave of Christ – “When I began to preach the book of Philippians a couple years ago, I noticed that Paul immediately … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Devotional Theology: An Introduction – “We are to know God. In recent years, however, there have been extravagant measures taken by women to try to ‘get more’ of God; to hear from Him; to know Him better. Some of these efforts have ranged from painfully shallow to downright heretical. From the fallible, presumptuous words of Jesus Calling to the dangerous practice of contemplative prayer, eager Christian women everywhere are desperately seeking to know God better. However, the one thing we’re lacking is the one thing that’s sitting right under our noses—the Word of God; and further, a right understanding and application of it.” Why Your Pastor Should … Read More

Infants Shall Rule Over Them

“Ecclesiastes 1:9 What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.” bought the lie. Not long ago I was perusing my typical internet news sites when I came across an article on the Millennial generation.  In the very first paragraph, I discovered a sickening truth; I am a Millennial.  Gasp!  It nearly took my breath away.  For the past year, I have been on a tireless crusade to point out the foolishness of the Millennial generation.  I’ve specifically focused on how their God-hating ways have infected the American Church as those of that same generation who identify as Christians incessantly attempt to drag the … Read More
