ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Are You Going to Hurt Me? – “Autumn has descended at last. The heat of summer has slowly, stubbornly given way to the cool of autumn. The long summer days have surrendered to evenings that come too early, nights that linger lazily before yielding to dawn. Most days I find myself outside long before the sun has shown its face, running through darkened streets—my morning ritual. My mind works better when my body has been pushed. Three vignettes, three glimpses through my early-morning eyes.” Young Man, Young Woman: Set An Example – “I was always lousy at painting. In my high school art classes the teacher would give an … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Dispensationalism, Hal Lindsey, and Typology – “Shortly after I posted my article exploring the facepalming misuse of Scripture by many in the Reformed camp with the overuse of a typological hermeneutic, I had a dear pastor friend of mine leave a blistering comment on Facebook. He wrote…” Can An Unchanging God Be Compassionate? – “The God of Scripture is the one true constant in all the universe: ‘I, the Lord, do not change’ (Malachi 3:6). His nature and His thoughts are as immutable as His eternal plans. Specifically, He does not alter His Word, revise His will, revoke His promises, or change His mind: ‘God is … 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

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) What the Transgender Bathroom Debate Means For You – “Last night the New York Times reported that the Obama Administration would issue a decree directing every public school in the nation to allow bathroom access on the basis of self-identity, not biological sex. I’m quite aware of the White House’s place in our culture wars, and even I am surprised. If anyone had suggested in 2009 that the new President’s administration would seek to target children’s bathrooms for the sake of transgender ideology, the White house would have ridiculed it as a crazy conspiracy theory. So, for those suggesting that state legislatures seeking to define such … Read More

Entreating Favor Presents… Beautiful Thing!

Landon ChapmanPersonal0 Comments

ndeed, twenty-four months can feel like a lifetime.  It was April 2014 that I began the ministry Entreating Favor and I never could have imagined they way it has blossomed.  What began as an enjoyable way for me to share my Bible study notes and state an opinion on various theological issues has become a bona fide “ministry”.  I do not even begin to think this was my doing; without question it’s of God alone. So, a year later in the summer of 2015 my now very good friend, Pastor Nate Pickowicz, joined me at Entreating Favor in writing (including his crown jewel the “Best Book in the Bible” series) and co-hosting the Fire Away! podcast.  We’ve been very fortunate … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Spiritual Drafting and the Danger of Christian Complacency – “I’m no fan of most forms of racing. Cars, horses, drones, people—none of them do much for me. I find bicycle racing especially drab, except for those Olympic sprint events that suddenly grab my attention every four years. I do not know a whole lot about racing (which may well be why I don’t enjoy racing), but I do know enough to understand what they call drafting. Drafting is when a rider tucks himself immediately behind another racer, often settling just inches off his rear tire. When he does this, the lead rider has to muscle through the … Read More

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and the Annihilation of Christian Women’s Innocence

Philippians 4:8 [ESV]  “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” es, I am a Christian.  No, I am not a woman.  Why in the world, then, would I consider myself in any way capable of writing an article with the target audience being solely Christian women?  Two reasons: 1) We all use the same Bible and thus can speak into each other’s lives truthfully, and 2) I anonymously surveyed hundreds of women regarding the Fifty Shades of Grey books and upcoming movie.  Also, this week’s episode of the FireAway! podcast discusses this article … Read More
