The Daily Roundup: 25 November 2014

Spurgeon, Inerrancy, and What We Still Need Today – “The Word of God is the means God uses by His Spirit to pierce the heart of the convinced atheist, rejecters like Judas, and deniers like Peter. Evangelicals today need to stand firm in the grace of God and the Word by looking to the example of men like Spurgeon and be encouraged that God by His grace is still working to bring people to Himself and build His church for His glory and praise.”

Ferguson and the Path to Peace – “The reason African-Americans tend to speak out against racial profiling and disparate sentencing is because often they can imagine their own sons or brothers or nephews in that place. As those in Christ, we have the same family dynamic at work, regardless of whether we are black or white, Jew or Gentile. In the church, a black Christian and a white Christian are brothers and sisters. We care what happens to the other, because when one part of the Body hurts, the whole Body hurts.”

Why Apologetics Still Matters – “Maybe you are in a season of life where apologetics is not as appealing as it once was. These seasons come and go. But never put a “road closed” sign on the journey to defend your faith. We all need apologetics greatly. If we give up on it, we are giving up on one of the most unique gifts God has given to us. Unlike all other claims to faith, ours is an incarnational faith that will forever demand we deal with it historically. Apologetics still matters.”

Race Roundtable – “Pastor Darrin Patrick sat down with members of The Journey from various backgrounds to discuss race, privilege, and the events in Ferguson.”

“Give Attention to the Reading” – “Fifty books a year will not make you a scholar. It will, however, help you to be a better pastor. While reading is not the only thing you need to do, it is one of the more important things. Unfortunately, it is also one of the easier things to neglect. Reading takes skill and discipline, but you will be rewarded for doing it.”

The Sheep Aren’t Stupid – “The sheep are not dumb. In fact, we would do much better if we thought of the sheep in the way in which the Puritan, Thomas Watson, described them in his sermon, “The Good Shepherd.””
