Christ’s Humanity is the Shape of our Salvation – “What sweetness there is in tasting with your soul the bitter crushing of the Son! Christ the God-Man continues His High Priestly work, as He heals bruised reeds and mends ruined hearts. The Son has crossed an infinite divine, now He bind-up our deepest wounds and gut-wrenching hurts. Think about these things, they are excellent and lovely.”

The State of Theology: Take It or Leave It – “We, too, have our battles with bad theology and bad ethics in American culture and in American Christianity. Like Machen in his day, we need to take the same courageous stand in our day. We cannot afford to adopt a take it or leave it attitude when it comes to thinking about and obeying God’s Word. We must take it.”

Eve Created From Adam’s Rib – “Why did God make Eve from Adam’s rib? After all, if God had so desired, He could easily have formed Eve from the dust of the ground. In fact, He made Adam this way, (Genesis 2:7), as well as “every beast of the field” and “every bird of the heavens” (Genesis 2:19). So why did God make Eve differently? Perhaps He wanted to instruct us not only about the roles of Adam and Eve, but also concerning that of “the last Adam”, the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:45).”

Why I’m Glad My Church Hunting Is Over – “My church attendance had been a given my entire life, which brought an opportunity to practice Christian selflessness. Often I had been surrounded by people with whom I had little or nothing in common, and since I couldn’t change that circumstance, I learned to worship and to talk to and to love those very people. Church hunting, for me, frequently became an exercise in “a la carte” church assembly. I sought the congregation that was most suitable for my personality or my values or my temperament or my schedule.”
