Four Dangers for Complementarians – “Of course, many people will disagree with complementarianism—often quite vehemently—no matter what we say or do. But the truth is offensive enough without our help. We don’t need to add to its offense with our own faults and foibles.”

When Our Prayers Take On A Different Flavor – “Sometimes we know exactly why we are in a trial. We knew we were sinning all along, and we were just hoping it wouldn’t catch up with us. It’s just a matter of paying the consequences for our actions. But other times, we may be the victims. There may not be a particular offense that we have committed that can be directly linked to our suffering. And then we are left wondering why God is allowing this kind of affliction in our life.”

Manhood & Theology: Resurrection – “As we remember that it is only through the resurrection of Jesus that biblical manhood is restored, sustained and fueled we will turn, not inward to look for resources to change, but to Christ who has already done everything necessary to produce that sort of transformation in our lives. Whatever else might be said about biblical manhood, this much we can be sure of — biblical manhood is utterly dependent on the resurrection of Christ.”

The Great Commission in the Old Testament – “Once we understand the Great Commission as a function of kingship, we are in a better place to assess this agenda throughout the rest of the Old Testament. God’s reign is universal, and from the beginning, His plan of salvation aimed at all the families of the earth, never overlooking the fact that He “shall inherit all the nations” (Ps. 82:8).”

A Profile of Integrity – “Do you repudiate fleshly wisdom? Do you renounce all disgraceful and underhanded ways? Or are you motivated by jealousy and selfish ambition that employs worldly cunning and carnal cleverness to take advantage of people to get what you want?”
