  • God-Centered Preaching

    from Nathan W. Bingham Apr 24, 2012 Category: Tabletalk Magazine preachers we want to connect with the congregation, don't we? We want to be relevant. We want to meet our flocks where they are. We have heard the protests for more "practical sermons." These critics desire sermons that instruct on "how I can be a better self," "how I can deal with stress in my life," or "how I can be more successful." And so, acquiescing to these laments, therapy has replaced theology in much contemporary preaching. The self has acquired center stage, and God, if He is there at all, has been marginalized. The focus has shifted from God, who He is and what He has done, to self and our activity, our needs, and our experiences. The assumption, of course, is that theology is not practical, that the study of God is irrelevant for our daily lives. But nothing could be further from the truth.

  • Between Two Worlds: An Interview With Justin Taylor

    from Nathan W. Bingham Apr 19, 2012 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    Tabletalk: What led you to start a blog? Justin Taylor: One of my favorite parts of elementary school was "show and tell." I've always enjoyed sharing with others those things that I find fascinating. Eight years ago, I would regularly send a small group of friends items of interest on the Internet, and blogging seemed like a natural extension of what I was already doing, except for a wider audience. My assumption was that many Christians are already on the web every day. My goal is simply to put before them a steady stream of edifying links, excerpts, and notices that will help us all grow in godliness for God's glory. Keep Reading

  • Not So Fast

    from Nathan W. Bingham Apr 17, 2012 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    When Jim and Sandra (not their real names) asked me about leaving their church, I said, "Not so fast." Since then, I've counseled a number of couples and individuals in similar situations. And whenever the issue at hand does not concern biblical fidelity or theological compromise, I usually give the same caution about leaving a church: "Not so fast." Keep Reading
