Theology/Christianity:

 In trying to be helpful, many churches have failed, because they have failed to be truthful. They have failed not out of hardness of heart, or lacking of kindness, but in thinking that they are more merciful than God. I shudder to think about how much more rigorous, painful, and dangerous, and difficult my conversion would have been had it taken place in 2016. Rigorous, painful, dangerous, and difficult both for me personally and for my church. … Especially today the PCA is smitten in a stupid way, I’m using a hard word, very stupid way and to their shame, to the gay Christian movement. — Dr. Butterfield.

Daily Roundup for April 28, 2017

  Here are the items and resources of interest for April 28, 2017:

Theology/Christianity:

  • Bible Reading that Satan Leaves Alone
  • Pastoral Theology: The Pastor and the Session of the Church

    In light of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, and with a desire to continue seeing true, biblical reformation and spiritual awakening in our own day, these short exhortations focus on Pastoral Theology. The link between Pastoral Theology and the Reformation is vital. Without godly ministers who know how to have an eminent level of personal piety, without ministers who are skilled in the bible, without ministers who are trained and educated, without ministers who know the importance of pastoral visitation, and without ministers who know how to prepare and deliver expository sermons, we will never see a spiritual awakening. There is a great scarcity of true biblical ministers today. Do you know what a biblical pastor looks like? Do you believe you are a Pastor? Do you believe you have been called to the ministry? How do you know? Do you think, as ministers measure up, that you are “one in a thousand?” Job 33:23-24 tells us that those who are sent of God to show a man his uprightness are 1 in 1000…literally. So this series of exhortations delves into all the various aspects of Pastoral Theology and Expository Preaching in a variety of short exhortations so both Christians and their pastors alike may be reminded of what a true biblical minister is for the glory of Jesus Christ.
