The Power Of A Preface: Warfield On Kuyper

Books are a preacher’s whiskey--or so the saying goes. It doesn't take much to convince me that I need to add one more volume to my already full shelves.

Books are a preacher’s whiskey--or so the saying goes. It doesn't take much to convince me that I need to add one more volume to my already full shelves. I remember, years ago, taking a doctoral seminar on Calvin with Sinclair Ferguson at Westminster Theological Seminary. At the end of a gloriously long day of lectures, I found myself in the old WTS bookstore. Dr. Ferguson made his way there, too. As if I was his padawan learner, he allowed me to follow him around and observe a seasoned master of book-perusal. He was quick and knowledgeable.

The Path of Service, Part 2

We must be practical at this point. Jesus served us by leaving heaven, taking on a true human nature, teaching, and then dying on the cross for our sin. We cannot do that. So we must ask, “How can we serve others? In what way must we demonstrate the servant nature of our master?” I suggest the following. 
 
Theme: How to Serve Others: Listening
 
This week’s lessons remind us that true discipleship is marked by selfless service to others, because that is how Christ treated us.
 
Scripture: John 13:1-17

God-Shaped Comfort

Practical atheism thrives on deficient views of God, eroding the joy that Christians should experience in their everyday lives, enveloping the disciple in a mist of uncertainty, confusion, and anxiety...The light of God’s revelation, especially the Trinity, burns off the mist of confusion and error in common belief and practice.

Practical atheism thrives on deficient views of God, eroding the joy that Christians should experience in their everyday lives, enveloping the disciple in a mist of uncertainty, confusion, and anxiety. The habits of Christianity (its diverse rituals and liturgies) can form disciplines of holiness--but only insofar as they drive from and toward a clear view of who God has revealed himself to be in the Bible. For this reason, the most edifying traditions and authors1 have woven into their theology a robust Trinitarianism, the core revelation of God’s identity to humanity.

The Path of Service, Part 1

Following the Lord Jesus Christ is an individual matter, but it is not individualistic. Let me explain.
 
When we say that discipleship is an individual matter we are saying that it is something the individual himself must do. No one can follow Jesus for you. Your husband cannot be your proxy. Your children cannot read the Bible for you, pray for you, or obey the Lord for you. You must do these things for yourself, and if you do not do them, you are no true disciple. Individualism is something different.

Sunday School, Teaching, and Church Authority

Is teaching the Bible in the household of God ever not authoritative? 

 
Well, well, well. Carl and Aimee really thought they had me. It was an all-out ambush. And while I did take a few arrows I nevertheless was left unpersuaded by their argument. 
 
If you are wondering what I am referring to then take a listen to the latest Mortification of Spin podcast. In short, our disagreement is over the nature of teaching the Bible in Sunday School.
