Josh Buice

In this short video, Josh Buice, Steven Lawson, Tim Challies, and Phil Johnson talk about missions and how it’s the responsibility of the local church.

Reconciled by the Will of God — This is how the article begins, but don’t fail to read to the end: “Reconciliation is difficult with people and impossible with God. We can build bridges to those previously offended and patch the wounds of those we’ve hurt. But God is perfectly righteous and perfectly just. We are powerless to repair the damage done by our crimes against Him.”

The Cost of His Discipleship: Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906–45) — Stephen Nichols writes, “Whether Bonhoeffer was justified in his actions of conspiring to assassinate Hitler or not, or whether his death is an execution or a martyrdom, one thing emerges. Bonhoeffer’s contentment, even joy, while being in a Nazi prison cell was rooted in the reality that he was dead and that he was raised to new life in Christ.”

Two Questions To Ask about Your Apps — Tim Challies observes, “Recent headlines and revelations are causing a lot of us to think deeply about the apps we use, and especially the ones categorized as social media. We are beginning to question whether they are as beneficial and essential to our lives as perhaps we once assumed.”

You Need More Than a Better You — Mark Dever says, “The Bible teaches that you don’t need a better you, you need a *new* you.”

Andy Stanley Checks Himself Into Theological Rehab — “ATLANTA, GA—After yet another “confusing at best” statement by popular preacher and author Andy Stanley, the pastor checked himself into a local theological rehab center Wednesday.”

Indonesian Churches Blasted by Family of Suicide Bombers — “Suicide bombers launched coordinated attacks on three Indonesian churches during worship services this morning, leaving more than a dozen people dead and at least 40 more injured in a series of bloody blasts that horrified the country’s Christian minority and Muslim majority alike.”

This week on the DBG Blog:

  • Three Types of Pastors Who Help the Church — In this article, I seek to point out the types of pastors (although every pastor is all three of these at some level) who help the church by growing the people spiritually.
  • Wigs and Wisdom — In this article, I point to the prevailing trends of our day where the old want to be young and the young never want to be old—which points to another trend—the lack of biblical wisdom. Unfortunately, many adults in the church are more committed to their games than they are the gospel—which leaves the church trending downward in the area of gospel maturity.
