Apologetics

Kristen Hatton – Social Media Isn’t Your Teens’ Biggest Problem

“The only solution to a heart bent toward sin is repentance and trust in the gospel. In a selfie world, let’s help our teens understand their true identity is found only in Jesus.”

Dane Ortlund – Why the Book of Psalms Is for You

James Anderson – What Is a Worldview?

“Christians need to understand not only what it means to have a biblical worldview, but also why they should hold fast to that worldview and apply it to all of life. They should be able to identify the major non-Christian worldviews that vie for dominance in our society, to understand where they fundamentally differ from the Christian worldview, and to make a well-reasoned case that the Christian worldview alone is true, good, and beautiful.”

Eric Ortlund – Why Study the Book of Job?

“Perhaps the most important reason for reading the book, however, is that Job’s tragedy — an experience of searing pain and loss which did not make sense within any framework Job had — is all too common. ”

Jason Helopoulos – Help Your Kids Hope in God

“In family worship, we simply put ourselves and our children in the way of Christ’s blessing. Try it. I promise, it isn’t hard. Over time, practicing daily family worship will change your home. It will change your life. By coming daily to Jesus, not just in our private devotions but together as families, Christ pours out blessings that will overflow into eternity.”

John MacArthur – Subjectivity and the Will of God

“Making decisions based on subjective criteria is a subtle form of reckless faith.”

Michael Boling – Uprooting the Log of Hypocrisy

“Dealing with hypocrisy is not easy. We become comfortable in our hypocrisy as it is painful to admit this failure and it is hard to remove the log from our own eyes. However difficult, it is a must, not so we can pick out the speck in another’s eye, but so that we can do what we claim we are to be doing, namely being obedient children of God.”

K. Scott Oliphint – “I Am Who I Am”

“The revelation of God’s twofold character in Exodus 3 is essential to grasp for all who seek to engage in the biblical task of apologetics. No other religion on the face of the earth recognizes this kind of God. The faith we defend is wholly unique. It begins and ends with the revelation of this majestic mystery of God’s character given to us in Holy Scripture.”

Servants of Grace has embarked on two new studies:

Navigating Relationships

Psalms: The Gospel and the Christian Life

Origins/Science:

Carl Wieland – Frozen Feeding

“Some evolutionists today have conceded that fossils do not need millions of years to form, but unfortunately for most people the very word ‘fossils’ still speaks of slow processes over millions of years. God’s Word, the Bible, prophesied of ‘scoffers’ who would be ‘willingly ignorant’ about the Flood, which is a testimony to God’s awesome holiness and judgment upon sin. Evidence such as this is clearly and dramatically consistent with the biblical account.”

Wayne Spencer – Rediscovering Pluto

“Scientists and others are making comments about Pluto’s surface being ‘young’. It could be even younger than most scientists imagine. It is exciting that there are still surprises for us in what God created.”

Tim Chaffey – Creation: The Longest Week Ever?

“The meaning of the days in Creation Week is perfectly clear. Each day was the same length as our modern days. The sixth day truly was the sixth day.”

Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson – Finding Adam in the Genome: Part 1 of a Response to Chapter 2 (and Chapter 4) of Adam and the Genome

“For over 20 years, evolutionists have had opportunity to cite some example, some biological process, some experimental result that refutes Behe’s claims. And, after two decades, the best that Venema can do is change the subject. This does not bode well for the scientific coherence of evolution.”

Oldies but Goodies

A. W. Pink – The Importance of Sanctification

“Spiritual sanctification can only be rightly apprehended from what God has been pleased to reveal thereon in His holy Word and can only be experimentally known by the gracious operations of the Holy Spirit.”

Charles Spurgeon – Unknown Depths of Human Sin

“Every time a man sins, he aims a blow at the crown of God. He refuses to let God be the King, but puts his hand — his wicked hand — upon the diadem of deity and would dash the crown from God’s head if he could.”

J. C. Ryle – Repentance, Faith, and Sin

“True repentance, such as I have just described, is never alone in the heart of any man. It always has a companion — a blessed companion. It is always accompanied by living faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
