ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Jesus and Wine Theology and the Reformed Hermeneutic – “At the risk of receiving a severe wedgie from a number of my Reformed acquaintances who run around my game circle, I wanted to respond to a discussion that took place at the ReformCom 2016 with the guys of Apologia radio, N.D. Wilson, and Darren Doane. I specifically want to focus in upon the bizarre ramblings from Doane regarding what I call his ‘Jesus is wine theology.’ Doane’s ‘theology,’ if we can even call it that, perfectly highlights the horrendous abuse the historical Reformed, typological hermeneutic rains down upon the Bible when a person studies it. I’ll begin with … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Love & Believing the Best – “It was a few months after surgery and the bills started arriving. Thirty thousand for this, forty for that. My medical bills were racking up. Thankfully, the co-op to which I belong (and my godly wife) had a handle on things and were coming through in the clutch. But there was one reimbursement that was absent, and it was a big one. A check from a co-op member in the sum of about $20,000 was supposed to come in to pay the hospital, but it was late. One month. Then two. I lost my cool on more than on occasion. … Read More

Book Review: “Sexual Fidelity: No Compromise” by Mike Abendroth

Nate PickowiczBook Reviews, Christianity3 Comments

t’s no mystery that we are living in unparalleled times.  The Industrial Revolution gave birth to the information age, which has brought us immeasurable benefits.  However, it has also provided culture the tools to sin in ways never imaginable before.  In the past year, the headlines have been bursting with news stories about sex. From the same-sex marriage ruling by the Supreme Court, to the Josh Duggar sex abuse scandal, to the Ashley Madison website hack— we’ve simply been clobbered with the harsh reality that things are not getting any better with regards to sin, namely sexual sin.  Divorce rates are through the roof, co-habitation between unmarried couples is the societal norm, homosexuality is accepted in the public square, and … Read More

Three Reasons I’m Encouraged by American Evangelicalism

Landon ChapmanChristianity6 Comments

Psalm 135:6 [ESV]  Whatever the Lord pleases, he does, in heaven and on earth, in the seas and all deeps. e live in a time where it seems as though American Evangelicalism is purposely doing whatever it can to undermine the authority of scripture and the sovereignty of God.  Seeker-sensitive mega churches and their pastors are growing herds of false converts who have no idea what the true Gospel of Jesus Christ is and mistakenly think the Bible is about themselves and their temporal comfort and happiness.  I’ve written about these issues at length and there remains an endless cesspool of material from which to choose a suitable Biblical discernment article.  I should add, brother Tony Miano does an excellent job of … Read More

Preach the Gospel and ALWAYS Use Words

Landon ChapmanChristianity5 Comments

Romans 10:14-17  How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed?  And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard?  And how are they to hear without someone preaching?  And how are they to preach unless they are sent?  As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”  But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?”  So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. f you have spent any amount of time in a typical American Evangelical church, especially a seeker-sensitive mega church, you have undoubtedly heard … Read More
