“Ahmari or French? Why Christianity Is Not Pragmatic”The Gospel Coalition
“The French-Ahmari debate involves the question of whether there’s a byproduct of the Christian gospel that is worth just as much as the Christian gospel itself. As I hear some argue, it seems that Christianity is good because it produces a more humane culture. I think that’s true, of course. But to the extent that Christianity is repurposed for its social utility, Christianity becomes an instrumentalized force for some other end than humanity’s salvation.”

“CGN Statement on Women in Ministry Leadership”
“The roles and extent to which women engage in ministry leadership and Bible teaching is a point of long-standing discussion and disagreement among professing followers of Jesus. In response to requests from leaders of churches that are part of Calvary Global Network (CGN), this brief statement is intended to offer some clarity on views and practices that fall within the parameters of CGN’s official theological positions and ministerial philosophy on this subject, and those that do not.”

“White or Wrong?”Think
“Should people self-identify as “white”? In normal conversation? In the church, or other specifically Christian contexts? On a census form or diversity survey? It might seem that the answer is yes to all of the above and that even asking the question is the height of politically correct silliness.”

“A.S.K – 2 – Trusting the Bible” TheWeeFlea
“Some people who are not Christians will argue that the Bible cannot be the Word of God. That’s because they don’t believe in God, and therefore he cannot have a word. To them, a non-existent being clearly does not speak. The trouble is that they have usually made their minds up without any evidence.”

“Thousands of Christians fill Trafalgar Square for Pentecost celebration Thy Kingdom Come”Christian Today
“Trafalgar Square was filled with thousands of Christians from across denominations and traditions for a major Pentecost celebration at the heart of the capital today. Thy Kingdom Come, a 10-day prayer initiative launched by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, culminated in the free Trafalgar Square celebration today where at least 5,000 people were expected to turn out.”

“Things That Matter: The Pastor as a Contender”
“Today’s culture presents a uniquely intense time to contend for the faith. Pastors Brian Brodersen, Richard Cimino and John Hwang engage in discussion for how pastoral leaders can be properly equipped (and equip their congregation), in order to defend the faith. “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense…” (1 Peter 3:15)”

“Do Not Be Conformed to This World”Enduring Word
“The life based on feeling says, “ How do I feel about my job? How do I feel about my wife? How do I feel about the preacher?” This life by feeling will never know the transforming power of God because it ignores the renewing of the mind.”
