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) “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.

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) His Winnowing Fork Is in His Hand – “The Christian celebration of Christmas brings essential truths into clearer view. The central fact of the incarnation of the Son of God looms before us as the dividing line of all human history and the fulfillment of God’s promises. Priests and prophets and kings had long awaited the coming of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. At Christmas we declare what the angelic host announced to shepherds on a Bethlehem night: ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased.’ [Luke 2:14].” Sweet Promises of Blessing, Terrible … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Love Your Neighbor Enough to Speak Truth: A Response to Jen Hatmaker – “Today, I hear Jen’s words—words meant to encourage, not discourage, to build up, not tear down, to defend the marginalized, not broker unearned power—and a thin trickle of sweat creeps down my back. If I were still in the thick of the battle over the indwelling sin of lesbian desire, Jen’s words would have put a millstone around my neck.” Reformation Day and the Righteousness of God – “So, I know I’ve posted this (and even re-posted this) before, but when Reformation Day comes around, these truths are what my heart and mind … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Christian Men and Their Video Games – “If you’re a gamer, or a Christian gamer at least, you’ve rolled your eyes through a hundred articles by now, each one telling you why your gaming is sad, wasteful, pathetic. You’re immature, you’re addicted to pleasure, you’re a dopamine junkie. You might even have found yourself compared to a porn addict since in many minds porn and PlayStations go hand in hand. That’s not what the articles actually say, of course, but it can sure feel like it. Gamers are an easy target and a lot of people line up to take their swings.” That’s Legalism! – “‘Legalism’ The … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) 5 ways to discern true and false repentance – “Every Christian will likely encounter this scenario: someone you know and who professes Christ has a major sin in their life exposed.

You, as their friend (or pastor or spouse) are left wondering how to respond.” Perseverance in the Spiritual Disciplines – “his summer, we have been reading Don Whitney’s book Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life together.

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Beer, Bohemianism, and True Christian Liberty – “If everything you know about Christian living came from blogs and websites in the young-and-restless district of the Reformed community, you might have the impression that beer is the principal symbol of Christian liberty.” Lame Arguments Liberty Drinkers Should Avoid – “I originally wrote this post back in 2011 after John MacArthur stirred the dander of the 30-something pastor set who love to play like they are sophisticated metropolitans or who want to ‘take dominion over and reform drinking booze.’ He wrote an article basically telling them to put down their beer steins and wake up to the fact … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Is Donald Trump a Baby Christian? – “Perhaps you’ve heard the rumor that Donald Trump is a Christian now. It happened just recently, according to Dr. Dobson. “I don’t know when it was, but it has not been long,” Dr. Dobson said. ‘I believe he really made a commitment, but he’s a baby Christian.’ Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus On the Family and someone I grew up listening to, is among a list of evangelicals that make up Trump’s evangelical advisory board, or more specifically what’s called his “Faith and Cultural Advisory Committee.” Bad debates over good theology – “Well, we’re at it again.
