Five Truths About Why Inerrancy Matters – “Inspiration, like its sister doctrine, inerrancy, is not something invented by theologians and forced on the Church—the arguments for them arise from the Bible and are based upon the internal consistency of the Bible. And make no mistake, the Scriptures are equated with God’s revelation in words (Matt. 19:4-5; Heb. 3:7; Acts 4:24-25; see also 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21).”

5 Ways to Kill Anger – “The worst part about anger is that is does not bring about the righteousness of that we desire (James 1:19) Instead it hurts those who are at the receiving end of our anger, disfigures our character, breeds hatred and distrusts,tears apart relationships, and worst of all dishonors God.”

The Language of Grumbling – “Avoiding the language of grumbling begins with fostering a heart of gratitude. God is good. When we’re tempted to grumble, we should look around and ask ourselves how God has been good to us. Battlilng a grumbling spirit is hard work, and I continue to battle it. One of the ways I do that is to regularly take stock of God’s goodness, as demonstrated in my life, those around me, and in the revealed Word of God, where the truth of the gospel, God’s ultimate goodness, is found.”

Manhood & Theology: New Creation – “As a man who desires other men to know Christ and to flourish in their manhood, the doctrine of New Creation excites me. It obviously excites me to see the promise to which our faith is pointing, but it fires me up to think of the man I will one day be, when Christ comes again. There is an excitement about the courageous pursuit of biblical manhood found in this doctrine. It is indeed a warrior-like pursuit. It takes courage to live counter-culturally in our world today. It takes courage to live as though the Kingdom is already ushered in but not yet in its totality. It takes courage to see the “Christian pursuit” of manhood not as passive or weak, but as the most exciting venture and journey that a man can take in this lifetime.”

The State of Theology: Heaven? Yes! Hell, No. – “A little less, 61%, said yes to hell. But, here’s something interesting. Only slightly over half of those polled think that God shows His wrath. Only 6 out of 10 believe that Christ will return to judge all people who have lived. The survey says there may be a hell but leaves you wondering who will be there?”
