The Martyn Lloyd-Jones Trust

Martyn Lloyd-Jones was possibly the greatest preacher of the 20th Century and is known for, one thing being, his pastoral ministry at Westminister Chapel in London, England, from 1939 to 1968. He has had a big impact on me. A great resource is the MLJ Trust...

Relish God’s Word

I am very thankful for how the Lord has recently blessed me in His Word. Getting up most mornings and reading the Bible, not very concerned with how much I read, but enjoying God through His Word, has been very rich. It is something, and I thank God for this, that I...

Enjoy Life, but Treasure God

The Christian life is a life of joy. Yes, tribulation and sorrow – this world is not our home – but joy. God put us on earth, one reason being, to enjoy what He made. The Bible says that He gave us all things to richly enjoy (1 Timothy 6:17). However, in the midst of...

Be careful using the Bible: A Response to Rev. James R. McCormick’s Article

A concerned individual sent word to me through my wife about an article by Mr. James R. McCormick, “Be careful using the Bible,” from UM News (United Methodist News Service). In the article Mr. McCormick argues that the Bible has been misused so often “as a source of moral standards” that we must be careful how we use it. He states that “[i]n studying the Bible, it is necessary to realize that often God is cited as supporting whatever values are normative at that time in history.” Examples of this, according to Mr. McCormick, include Abraham’s relationship with Hagar, King Solomon’s many wives and concubines, and that eating certain types of food in the Old Testament were considered “abominations.”

Growth is What Counts

“What we have principally to do with, in our inquiries into our own state, or the directions we give to others, is the nature of that effect which God has brought to pass in the soul. As to the steps which the Spirit took to bring that effect to pass, we may leave them to him. We are often in Scripture expressly directed to try ourselves by the nature of the fruits; but no where by the Spirit’s method of producing them” (Jonathan Edwards, from The Religious Affections).

The Bible and Homosexuality

The Bible’s teaching on homosexuality is one of the most dividing, important, and needed teachings of our generation. If you are reading this you probably have an interest in understanding it better. And your interest may go beyond mere theory. Maybe you want to better understand the Bible’s teaching so you can then speak to others. Or, maybe a friend has challenged your formerly secure, yet ungrounded, views. Perhaps you are looking for answers to your own searching, yet neglected, questions. Whatever the case is, I pray that you would find help through these pages.
