On This Day: 21st March 1748—The Conversion of John Newton

Today our youngest son William celebrates his third birthday. His grandpa reminded me in an email that this is also the day on which John Newton was converted back in 1748. It is an amazing story of the moving of the Spirit in the heart, making the sinner "willing in the day of [his] power" [...]

John MacArthur Plans Biblical Inerrancy Summit

The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, released in 1978, set the standard for inerrancy. Since that document was produced 36 years ago, a new generation has arrived that needs to be brought in line with the truth. Current publications demonstrate that the true doctrine of inerrancy is under attack. Some of these attacks [...]

A Second Take on St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day as we now know it is the product of the modern trend to make everything in life light and frivolous—even religion. The atmosphere in Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day is very different now from what it was ten or fifteen years ago. St. Patrick’s Day in Roman Catholic Ireland used to be [...]

Daily Devotionals: (March 2nd) Tried but Loved

Reading: 1 Peter 4:10-11 It’s impossible to read Peter’s doctrinal and dynamic epistle and not be struck by the fact that he sought to encourage, comfort, and minister to believers who were going through a time of incredible suffering! This letter was written in and around that period in history when Christians were particularly hated. During [...]

Daily Devotionals: (March 1st) Cared For!

Reading: 1 Peter 5:7 At the time Peter’s letter was written there were very few in the world that had any real interest in the followers of Christ. The church was small. Congregations were just being established. There was great vocal and violent opposition to the gospel and the majority of people cared nothing for the [...]

Bill Nye Debates Ken Ham (Evolutionist/Creationist)

Just finished watching the debate broadcast live via SermonAudio. Ken Ham was very well prepared. He presented himself very clearly with a secure belief in the sovereignty and omnipotence of God. He was succinct, well reasoned, and he gave a very clear presentation of the gospel and the biblical understanding of life. Bill Nye did [...]

The Fathers—my mentors

The Fathers—my mentors by Dr. Michael Haykin. Taken from the weblog of The Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies. Do the Fathers lead logically to the full-blown theology of the Roman Catholic Church or Eastern Orthodoxy? Not at all: Epiphanius of Salamis condemned the use of icons and pictures; Cyprian described Stephen, the bishop of Rome, [...]

Calvinists Have a Deep Sense of their Own Depravity…?

Tim Challies (check him out for recommended reading) recently wrote an article on the different approaches that Christians have in dealing with the forces of evil in their lives. The article is helpful, insightful, and worth reading. There is one line, however that caught my attention and revived a recurring thought I have about many [...]
