Dave Dunham – Studies in Leviticus: A Fungus Among Us (Leviticus 13 & 14)

Spiritual death has a physical component to it. The original curse issued by God in the Garden of Eden came with physical implications: hard labor, painful childbirth, and the promise of eventual “return to dust” (Gen. 3). Death, disease, and pain are reminders that...

Tony Reinke – Lecrae Confesses Abortion, Invites Others into the Light

As the forty-second anniversary of Roe v. Wade draws near, we are reminded of how large and formidable the abortion industry has become in the United States. Planned Parenthood survives with a heavy dose of government funding, even as overall abortion numbers are down...

Erik Raymond – Parents: Should You Mandate Bible Reading for your Children?

B. B. Warfield – Communion with Christ

2 Tim. 2:11-13 — "Faithful is the saying: For if we died with Him, we shall also live with him: if we endure we shall also reign with him: if we shall deny him, he also will deny us; if we are faithless, he abideth faithful; for he cannot deny himself." The words...

Nick Batzig – The 6 Ingredients of Jesus’ Bitter Cup

When we think of the cup that was placed before Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane, we tend to think of it merely in terms of the wrath of God–since that is what the cup most clearly symbolizes in the writings of the OT prophets. While we would never dare reduce it to...

Nick Batzig – Jesus, the True and Greater Gardener

The Scriptures tell us that the Son of God began His sufferings in a Garden and brought them to a close in a Garden. That is an absolutely amazing display of God's wisdom. After all, Jesus is the second Adam undoing what Adam did and doing what Adam failed to do (Rom....

Bruce Ashford – Culture and The Kingdom of God

The best kept secret in the Christian life is that everything we do matters to God. Some Christians have the idea that pastors and missionaries are doing “kingdom work,” but the rest of us are not. In this post, I’d like to show how every dimension of human life and...

John Flavel – Pneumatologia A Treatise of the Soul of Man

Growth in the Gospel

Why is it important for the Christian to grow in understanding of the Gospel? The Gospel is not an object; it is foundational to our growth in Christ. The Gospel is not a message of self-esteem, improvement, or prosperity. Scripture teaches us: The heart is more...
