ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) With Greater Age Comes Greater Joy – “We were made to exist within time, to age as we progress through the years allotted to us. As we age, we experience tremendous sorrows—the sorrows of weakness, weariness, reaping, mortality, and fear. But we do not experience only sorrows. We experience joys as well. Some of these extend to believer and unbeliever alike, but God reserves the choicest of his joys for those who live for his glory.” Love & Irritability – “It was a typical night waiting tables in the fine dining room of the country club. Napkins were creased, flowers centered, and tables angled just right. … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Be a Parent Worthy of Honor – “For a number of weeks, I have been exploring the fifth commandment and, in particular, how adult children are to obey it. ‘Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God commanded you, that your days may be long, and that it may go well with you in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.’ While heeding this command is relatively straightforward to the young child under the authority of his parents, it is much more difficult to know what it entails for adult children. Through this series, we have begun to learn some … Read More

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) “The Shack” and What It Says about Evangelicalism – “In 2008, William Paul Young wrote a book titled The Shack that was instantly a best-seller. It ascended to the top of the best-selling lists (including the New York Times and Amazon), and like many successful books often do, it has now morphed into a movie. The book originally written as a Christmas gift for a family has sold over 20-million copies and become one of the top 70 books in the history of printed books.” The Disciple-Making Parent – “A core component of my regular reading diet is books on parenting. As long as I am … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Andy Stanley’s Statements about the Bible are not Cutting Edge—They’re Old Liberalism – “I was at the recent ERLC Onward Conference listening when Russell Moore was having a conversation about ministry and preaching with Andy Stanley. I was startled when Stanley said he preaches some sermons without ever quoting the Bible. He views these sermons as extended introductions. Stanley also said we do not believe Christianity because of the Bible, but because of the resurrection and eyewitness testimonies. A couple of years ago, Stanley said that preachers should stop saying, ‘The Bible says,’ a position he reaffirmed during the conversation.” Why I Don’t Think You Must … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) 10 Warning Signs A Servant Leader Has Become the “King” of His Kingdom  – “As Christian leaders, we are called to serve others even as we’re completely reliant on God. Too often, though, a leader who was once a servant wrongly transitions into being the king of his own kingdom. Here are some signs that a leader has become the ‘king’…” My Response to: “But if You Don’t Vote for Trump, Hillary Will Win” – “Last week I published a column explaining why as a Christian, I could not in good conscience vote for either of the ungodly candidates for president being offered by the two … Read More

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. While having been called upon to preach at all of these types of funerals, I can say from my own experience that the most trying funerals have to be those for … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) George Whitefield: Calvinist Evangelist – “George Whitefield, the famed 18th century evangelist known for crossing the Atlantic Ocean thirteen times, was an instrumental figure in the Great Awakening. Also known as the ‘Grand Itinerant’, Whitefield often preached outdoors to crowds upwards of 20,000 people. He was a passionate proclaimer of the gospel of Jesus Christ, urging lost souls to be born again. Yet, throughout the entirety of his ministry, he remained fully committed to the doctrine of God’s sovereignty in salvation.” Eli and Passive Parenting – “Parenting is never easy. Nobody in this fallen world has mastered it. And when it comes to raising children in the fear of the … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) The Transgender Conversation You Need to Have With Your Family – “A friend of mine told me about her recent experience in an airport security line. She was dutifully passing through the metal detector when she heard a beep and was told she would need the pat-down procedure. It is the right of the traveler to have that procedure performed by someone of the same gender and so, as per protocol, the call went out for a female officer to assist. But as the pat-down began, my friend realized that the officer was undeniably biologically male though identifying as female. She did not know what to … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) The Absurdity of Transgenderism: A Stern but Necessary Critique – “By now we are all undoubtedly familiar with the tragic suicide of Joshua Alcorn, the transgender teenage boy who, in late December, walked onto a freeway with the intention of ending his life. In an apparent suicide note, Joshua cites a host of reasons for why he was led to end his life, most prominent of which were his parents’ attempts to discourage his identifying as a girl and his being sent to therapists in an attempt to relieve these feelings. All of the problems that ultimately culminated in his suicide, writes Joshua, stem from the … Read More
