ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Gospel-Centered Monster Making – “Some people wonder (others fuss about) why we at Mortification of Spin seem to devote so much energy to objecting to the celebrity culture and methods of Big Reformed(ish) Evangelicalism. That’s an easy question to answer. It’s bad for the church. Period. The Reformed community has created their own version of the monster made by broader evangelicalism; a monster they continue to suffer from. Just becasue our theology is better does not mean that we will avoid the dangers inherent in entrusting certain para-church ministries with the duties of the church. Just because we are Calvinists doesn’t mean that our celebrities are any … 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) Do Right and Wrong Exist? – “Moral absolutes are only possible if God exists.  According to naturalism, what we know as “morality” is just an evolutionary adaptation which is entirely subjective and self-serving.” Jonathan Edwards Was Fired — What Lessons Can the Church Learn? – “In 1750, Jonathan Edwards was fired from his church.

Nate PickowiczChristianity, Series: Best Book in the Bible0 Comments

or many believers, Romans is their favorite Bible book! A while we certainly do not want to minimize the other sixty-five books, there is something special about this letter. It encapsulates the gospel, packing a hard punch of theological truth. It ignites the heart, soothes the soul, challenges the mind, and quickens the affections for Christ. In this post, we explore just some of what makes Romans the best book in the Bible. Main themes: the gospel of God Favorite verses: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” (Rom. 1:16) “But God demonstrates His own love toward … Read More

Nate PickowiczChristianity1 Comment

f we polled the average person in America, asking them to identify what they consider to be the most dangerous religion in the world, we would undoubtedly hear a variety of answers.
