Heresy and God’s Word (Part 1)

It’s a strong, admittedly divisive word, sometimes used correctly, but more often than not, is defined slightly differently by Christians with so many nuances that it can be difficult to agree on what is and what is not, actual heresy. I’ve often been asked how I really know that certain teachings are heresy when maybe, […]

New Calvinism: It’s Major Tenets & Sources

Paul Dohse of Pauls Passing Thoughts has an important, ongoing service to the Church, namely, exposing New Calvinism (NC) for what it truly is: A movement rooted in Seventh-Day Adventism; a complex, mind-boggling, twisting of Scripture in order to systematize so-called Reformation doctrine with the false premise that it was once lost and is now […]

Michael Horton’s Sonship Theology

Swinging from one extreme to another has always been an over-correcting problem in Christendom by those zealous for the truth. In this video, Horton goes from a ‘Christless Christianity’ to just as dangerous an extreme – Sonship theology. Horton echoes the thinking of the popular mantra’s of New Calvinism : “We must preach the Gospel […]

Michael Horton, Polio, Two Kingdoms and Your Favorite Food

The proposition: “Do we really need Christian pop music for our entertainment or Christian cookbooks?  Is there really a Christian method of making stir-fry?” (Michael Horton, Where in the World,196) The answer: What makes anti-vaccination movements possible?  Forgetfulness.  Amnesia.  The blessing of a vaccine can be its curse.  It enables its beneficiaries to take their […]

Ligonier Ministries 2012 National Conference

March 15-17 in Orlando Burning hearts are not nourished by empty heads. One of the things most alarming about today’s culture is the way in which evangelicals are responding to attacks. Many have bought into the idea that having one’s heart in the right place is all that matters—that a passion for Jesus and the […]

Chandler, Horton and Keller on the Church in Culture

“Three church leaders answer perennial questions: What is the church’s role in culture? Put another way, how does the church equip members to carry out their callings in the world?” Disclaimer for Saltheads: It’s an interesting video, good conversation, but posting the video doesn’t mean my stamp of approval on the views of all three […]

Jesus & Civil Law

Michael Horton has written a very good article regarding the death of Osama bin Laden and how we view the ‘two kingdoms’, a.k.a the City of God and the City of Man a la Augustine,  and their differences in light of justice. In his article, Michael makes a statement that truly fascinated me: Cultures are […]

Missional Church or New Monasticism?

Michael Horton has written a cogent piece on the ‘missional’ church, monasticism and the Reformation’s understanding of discipleship which I highly encourage you to read. As Horton states,  “Renewing our response to the Great Commission begins with the right understanding of discipleship.” A few of his critically important observations: The New Monasticism 1. Today we […]

Ok, I said I would follow up the earlier post on the kerfluffle between Ingrid Schlueter and Chris Rosebrough. I’ll keep this relatively short for a variety of reasons, not the least of which it’s Saturday, I’m sick, and I’ve more important things to do like plant veggie seeds, and the fact that all this […]

A Time to Run
