Daily Roundup for March 26, 2018

Here are the items and resources of interest for March 26, 2018:


Theology/Christianity:

What has gone wrong? At the heart of the mess is a simple phenomenon: the churches seem to have lost a love for and confidence in the Word of God. They still carry Bibles and declare the authority of the Scriptures. They still have sermons based on Bible verses and still have Bible study classes. But not much of the Bible is actually read in their services. Their sermons and studies usually do not examine the Bible to see what it thinks is important for the people of God. Increasingly they treat the Bible as tidbits of poetic inspiration, of pop psychology, and of self-help advice. Congregations where the Bible is ignored or abused are in the gravest peril. Churches that depart from the Word will soon find that God has departed from them.

Daily Roundup for February 12, 2018

Here are the items and resources of interest for February 12, 2018:


Theology/Christianity:

  • Sex before marriage is still a sin and In our day, this issue is one that needs to be revisited.  
  • A question I often receive from members of the church is “what Bible translation do you use?”  This article from Dr. Benjamin Shaw is helpful.
  • This series of articles on expository preaching is something I am looking forward to reading. Here is part one written by Ed Stetzer.  AS the new editions are released, I will be adding them to the Roundup.  Additionally, I am working on my own article on preaching titled: Why the church needs experimental preaching. From the article:

I preach through books of the Bible not because that method is mandated or modeled in the Bible, but instead because of what the Bible is. Because the Bible is the Word of God without error and inspired throughout, it requires us to treat the words, phrases, and sentences accordingly. Thus, the Bible is best taught using an approach to preaching that explains what God has inspired, looking at the words and phrases in the process.
