The second Q&A session from the 2017 G3 Conference provided a good discussion on several important modern and historical subjects between Steven Lawson, James White, Voddie Baucham, David Hall, and Phil Johnson.  The conversation was moderated by Matthew Robinson.

What’s the Purpose of … Marriage? — Tim Challies is starting a new series titled, “What’s the purpose of …?” He begins with marriage.

Lay Elders Are Not the Shepherding JV Team — I appreciate the tone and concern of this article.

Why Do We Continue to Struggle with Legalism? — “If you think about it, the world is full of untrue, unsound, unbiblical theology. It is important we know where it comes from so we can better understand it, speak against it, and protect ourselves and others from it.”

$5 Friday: Holiness, Grace, & Providence — It’s Friday, and that means that you can find some really good books for just $5.

Another Mega DL! Lots of Topics, Including P&P, Proud of Multiple Abortions, Muslim Arguments, KJV Onlyism — James White tackles several topics including abortion and KJV Onlyism.

The Pastoral Heart and Inevitability of Suffering — “If the aim of preaching is the glory of God through Jesus Christ, and if God is most glorified in our people when they are most satisfied in Him, and if the universal human experience of suffering threatens to undermine their faith in the goodness of God, and thus their satisfaction in His glory, then our preaching must aim, week in and week out, to help our people be satisfied in God while suffering.”

Serious Sins — “Every sin is serious, even the ones that look respectable.  But that doesn’t mean some sins don’t deserve more attention than others.”

The Five Solas — I found this article to be well written on the five solas of the Reformation.  “So it was that by the middle of the twentieth century the five ‘solas’ (or, for Latin pedants, ‘solae’) became an established way of summarising the message of the Reformation: Scripture alone, faith alone, Christ alone, grace alone and all to God’s glory alone.”

Far too much ministry today is undertaken without any concern for holiness. We’ve found that changing the way we do church is easier than changing the way we are. We’ve found that we are not sufficiently unlike anyone else to garner notice, so we’ve attempted to become just like everyone else instead.” —Kevin DeYoung (Taken from Don’t Call it a Comeback, 26).
