  • Law and Gospel

    Effectual Grace ^ | February 9, 2011 | John Samson
    The Law is good. The Law is perfect and holy. There is no defect in the Law of God. The problem is not the Law itself but that man is a sinner by nature and cannot keep the Law. Through the law comes the knowledge of sin. Rather than curb sin, the law brings sin out into the open, revealing to us the depths of our human, sinful depravity. Imagine a large plane glass window. You can break it by driving a tank through it, or you can simply fire the smallest pellet from a gun through the glass, but...

    The Gospel Coalition ^ | January 18, 2011 | Tullian Tchividjian
    As I’ve said before, I once assumed (along with the vast majority of professing Christians) that the gospel was simply what non-Christians must believe in order to be saved, while afterward we advance to deeper theological waters. But I’ve come to realize that once God rescues sinners, his plan isn’t to steer them beyond the gospel, but to move them more deeply into it. The gospel, in other words, isn’t just the power of God to save you, it’s the power of God to grow you once you’re saved. After all, the only antidote to sin is the gospel—and since...

    ChicoER Gate ^ | 11/2/10 | Chuck Wolk
    Today in 1921, just two months to the day after the first public radio broadcasts began on November 2, 1920, the first religious service in the history of broadcasting was aired on KDKA in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Westinghouse decided to test their ability to do a broadcast that was not initiated from their radio studio. Because they had an engineer who was a member of the choir at Pittsburgh's Calvary Episcopal Church, they decided to make the arrangements with his church.Interestingly, the senior pastor, Rev. Edwin Van Ettin, was leery of the new medium, so the first sermon  broadcast over...
  • Can Christians be Assured of their Salvation?

    "These things have I written unto you that believe in the name of the Son of God, that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God" (1 John 5:13). When the Apostle John penned these words centuries ago, he did so to encourage faith in Christ, and to encourage those who do believe. The times were tough for believers, and they would get tougher. To follow the rabbi from Nazareth meant paying a high price, and many were inclined to turn back when they encountered adversity. John's...

    9 Marks ^ | Mark Dever
    I often hear the question, "how do you apply the text in an expositional sermon?" Behind this question may be many questionable assumptions. The questioner may be remembering "expositional" sermons he has heard (or maybe preached) that were no different from some Bible lectures at seminary—well-structured and accurate but demonstrating little godly urgency or pastoral wisdom. These expositional sermons may have had little if any application. On the other hand, the questioner may simply not know how to recognize application when he hears it. William Perkins, the great sixteenth-century puritan theologian in Cambridge, instructed preachers to imagine the various kinds...

    The Gospel Coalition ^ | 11/26/10 | Tullian Tchividjian
    In his book How People Change (co-authored with Tim Lane), Paul Tripp identifies seven counterfeit gospels– ways we try and “justify” or “save” ourselves apart from the gospel of grace. I found these unbelievably helpful. Which one (or two, or three) of these do you tend to gravitate towards? Formalism. “I participate in the regular meetings and ministries of the church, so I feel like my life is under control. I’m always in church, but it really has little impact on my heart or on how I live. I may become judgmental and impatient with those who do not have...

    Apologist, lawyer and theologian John Warwick Montgomery references this choice in a quick blurb about the existence of evil and a good God: "Opponents of theism have perennially argued that the natural and moral evils in the universe make the idea of an omnipotent and perfectly good God irrational. But if subjectivity (and its correlative, freewill) must be presupposed on the level of human action, and if God’s character as fully transcendent divine Subject serves to make human volition meaningful, then the existence of freewill in itself provides a legitimate explanation of evil. To create personalities without genuine freewill would...

    Since moving from a large parish to a mission parish I’ve changed my ways. The sermon is always after the Gospel reading. I used to think that the rubrics required it because the reading was fresh in the minds of my hearers. While this is true, I’m no longer convinced this is the primary reason. I see something new: The timing of the sermon vivifies – breaths life into – the Eucharistic half of the Liturgy. ... It all boils down to this: When the Gospel is preached, Christ is revealed.

Eleven years later, he died back in North Korea in prison, reportedly tortured to death for trying to spread the Gospel in his native land, armed with 20 bibles and 10 cassette tapes of hymns. He was 50. His story, pieced together by his younger brother, a defector who lives in South Korea, sheds light on a little-discussed practice: the sending back of North Korean converts to evangelize in their home country - a risky...

According to the AP, “Christian proselytizing at the festival has been a matter of dispute for several years.” After being stopped by the police minutes after arriving, the evangelists were taken to the security booth, photographed, had their camera taken away, ID’s were turned in for their information, even their cell phones...

    Most American "Christians" think in a Western mindset when it comes to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is true that the West has been the place for the spreading of the Gospel for over 1700 years. In his ministry, Paul the apostle moved westward from the land of Israel as he proclaimed the Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ/Messiah. From there it spread westward into Africa and Europe, to the Americas, then unto China and India “full circle.” Although there are many “false gospels,” the True Gospel message (as preached by Paul) is contained in the following scriptures: Moreover, brethren,...

In 2006, the U.S. Secret Service confiscated 83 packs of the gospel tracts, which resemble million-dollar bills. The ministry's tracts feature a "million-dollar question" and asks readers, "Will you go to heaven?" The tracts also include a brief test and Bible excerpts.

    In light of the Haitian earthquake today’s Haitian people are oppressed by demonic voodoo and superstition. Immoral and decadent behavior abound. Their social status and standard of living is found to be one of the poorest of all nations in the Western Hemisphere. Their poverty - as of other poor nations - is because of their outright rejection of sound spiritual and natural laws. Does this constitute a “judgmental attack” on the nation of Haiti? No, of course not! It is a sound observation expressed in terms of the law of cause and effect, which is timeless. Seeking to make...

    You did not choose me; I chose you, and appointed you to go and bear much fruit, the kind of fruit that endures. And so the Father will give you whatever you ask of him in my name. This, then, is what I command you: love one another. "If the world hates you, just remember that it has hated me first. If you belonged to the world, then the world would love you as its own. But I chose you from this world, and you do not belong to it; that is why the world hates you. Remember what I...

    Who do you say that Jesus is? Do your thoughts, upbringing, religious background, or personal beliefs about Jesus line up with God’s Christ of the HOLY SCRIPTURES? You might ask, “Well, does it make a difference? My friend, I say unto you, it surely does! TAKE THE JESUS CHALLENGE The Bible is the final AUTHORITY on who Jesus Christ is. It is God’s absolute instruction manual and blueprint for life. If you reject the authority of the Word of God, my friend, you are doomed. There is no hope for your lost, sinful condition. The Bible teaches that “All have...

    Now "strengthening of the heart" is one of the great wants of many professing Christians...They want to realize more tangible comfort. They fancy they ought to feel more and see more...Where shall they turn? What shall set their consciences at rest? Then comes the enemy of souls, and suggests some shortcut road to establishment. He hints at the value of some addition to the simple plan of the Gospel, some man-made gimmick, some exaggeration of a truth, some flesh-satisfying invention, some improvement on the old path, and whispers, "Only use this, and you shall be strengthened."... "Come to us," says...

    Reader, when St. Paul said, “Hold fast,” he wrote as one who knew what the hearts of all Christians are. He knew that our grasp of the Gospel, at our best, is very cold,—that our love soon waxes feeble,—that our faith soon wavers,—that our zeal soon flags,—that familiarity with Christ’s truth often brings with it a species of contempt,—that, like Israel, we are apt to be discouraged by the length of our journey,—and like Peter, ready to sleep one moment and fight the next,—but like Peter, not ready to “watch and pray.” All this St. Paul remembered, and, like a...

    Not what it appears to be: the Archaic Mark LONDON. A clever bit of detective work by US scholars and scientists has proven that one of the jewels of the University of Chicago’s manuscript collection is, in fact, a skilled late 19th- or early 20th-century forgery. Although speculation as to the authenticity of the Archaic Mark codex has been rife for more than 60 years, prior to this definitive research many believed it was an early record (possibly as early as the 14th century) of the Gospel of Mark and the closest of any extant manuscript to the world’s oldest...
