  • Standing Together for the Gospel

    from Karisa Schlehr Dec 05, 2008 Category: Articles

    Together for the Gospel (T4G) began as a friendship. These friends differed on a number of theological issues, but they were committed to standing together for the main thing -- the gospel of Jesus Christ. So they began a conference which occurs every two years and aims principally at encouraging other pastors to do the same -- to stand together for the gospel. Keep Reading

  • Christmas according to the Apostle Paul — Gal 4:4-5 (Pt. 1 of 3)

    from R. Fowler White Dec 02, 2008 Category: Articles

    One of the most beloved carols that Christians sing during the Christmas season is that of William C. Dix, What Child is This? As few other carols do, the lyrics of this selection prompt us to contemplate the identity, the person and work, of the Babe in the manger. In fact, the carol politely but persistently presses us to answer the question: is this Child truly a holy infant or a mere holiday infant? Keep Reading

  • The Breath of God

    from Derek Thomas Nov 30, 2008 Category: Articles

The idea is not so much that God breathed into the Scriptures, but that the Scriptures are the product of His breathing out. Independent of what we may feel about the Bible as we read it, Scripture maintains a "breath of God" quality. Thus, the preacher is to make God's Word known and make it understandable. He is to limit himself to it without adding or subtracting. As Alec Motyer has written: "An expository ministry is the proper response to a God-breathed Scripture. . . . Central to it all is that concern which the word 'exposition' itself enshrines: a display of what is there." Keep Reading
  • Enoch Kept Walking

    from James Boice Nov 29, 2008 Category: Articles

    Three hundred years is a long time. What kept Enoch walking with God for three hundred years? He had an awareness of judgment coming. He had a sensitivity to the ungodliness of the age. And he drew closer to God as the reality of these things pressed in upon him. The way to graph it would be to make a circle, space these three items around the circle, and then show by arrows that each one influenced the other. The more Enoch was aware of the judgment, the more sensitive he was to sin. Keep Reading
