This week the 2019 G3 Conference promo video was released and you should take just a little more than one minute to check it out for yourself.
The Best Argument for Using a Printed Bible — Yet in this year of worldwide travel for that church history project I’m calling EPIC, I’ve been challenged to return to a printed Bible. What’s the best argument? Instead of telling you, let me show you.
Rob Bell, Fundamentalist: 5 Ironies from the New Bell Film — “The Heretic makes no effort to handle these real questions. All belief systems have pressure points, but Bell’s post-evangelicalism seems unaware of possible weaknesses.”
Expository Preaching and the Use of Commentaries — “To use biblical commentaries most effectively, the preacher must turn to these resources with specific objectives in mind. More specifically, he should use the commentaries to confirm, correct, clarify, or supplement his interpretation of the passage. He should also use them to wrestle with exegetical questions that are still unanswered and interpretive problems that are still unresolved.”
If You Love God, Listen to Him: Five Reasons to Read the Bible Every Day — “Christians must be Bible people. Over the years, I have spent many hours pleading with people to see that sentence as true. Sadly, it strikes many as novel, edgy — or worse, irrelevant.”
‘Little Girls Need Their Daddy’ — “Billy’s children say that his frequent extended absences marked them, but so did his unconditional love. While he sometimes chose ministry over family, they also knew that he loved them deeply and unconditionally.”
$5 Friday: Prayer, Faith, & the Gospel — Some good books for only $5.
His Suffering Sparked a Movement: David Brainerd (1718–1747) — “His life was short — 29 years, 5 months, and 19 days. And only eight of those years as a Christian. Only four as a missionary. And yet few lives have sent ripples so far and so wide as David Brainerd’s.”
The Bee Explains: Theological Liberalism — “During your daily poring over of The Babylon Bee‘s award-winning coverage of all theological camps, you may have found yourself wondering about the worldview known variably as “theological liberalism,” “liberal theology,” “liberal Christianity,” or “butter in sunshine.” Well, wonder no more!”
This week on the DBG:
- Confessions of a Selfie Saturated Culture — In this article, I attempted to show how our culture of selfies is indicative of a serious problem of self-love or self-idolization.
- Why Women Should Not Teach the Bible to Men — In this article, it was my goal to demonstrate the boundaries of women teaching in the life of the local church and beyond based on the evidence of 1 Timothy 2 and the Greek terms.
