Evangelism

June 10th 2014 by Posted in Blog 0 Comments

My friend is an evangelist, a global Christian activist who offers the gospel whenever and wherever he finds opportunity. After any restaurant meal, for instance, he’ll fold the tip in a gospel tract. His voicemail message offers a gospel invitation to callers. His favorite strategy is to take non-Christian friends golfing in order to engage | Read More…

Satan Hates the Holy Spirit

June 2nd 2014 by Posted in Blog 0 Comments

I think this might just be a blind spot in contemporary theology.  We know that Satan hates God and marriage and evangelism and even church planting.  But I have never heard anyone reference his hatred for the Holy Spirit. As I ponder this idea I see more and more evidence to support the statement used | Read More…

Fear of Freedom

May 30th 2014 by Posted in Blog 1 Comment

One of the prevailing responses to the message of free-grace or the freedom found in Christ is fear. This fear has as its basic assumption that free-grace in Christ won’t actually lead to good works, but leads to inactivity at best or licentiousness at worst. Instead, one must see the Law as God’s means to | Read More…

Righteous?

May 21st 2014 by Posted in Blog 0 Comments

Righteousness—and how to achieve it—is at the heart of Christian faith. But what, according to the Bible, makes us righteous? Another word, justification – “to be made righteous”, refers to the same issue: how do we come into a proper standing with God? In Christianity at least three ways of determining righteousness have been promoted: | Read More…

Amazing Grace

May 12th 2014 by Posted in Blog 2 Comments

A few weeks ago I had a very encouraging conversation with a thrilled believer. She had read a book about God’s grace and it was a delight to see her so stirred by what she saw there. She described how amazing it is that even though she was so guilty, the judge has paid the | Read More…

Looking Forward to Death

May 6th 2014 by Posted in Blog 0 Comments

The last few days I’ve been reminded that death could happen for any one of us at any moment. Even a random, unthinkable event could take life in a blink of an eye. For those of us who live in the industrialized world, a near death experience or even a loss of a loved one | Read More…

“And the Holy Spirit”

May 5th 2014 by Posted in Blog 0 Comments

This week’s entry was originally written by Ron on his blog: Spreading Goodness. It’s so good we wanted to share it! ——————————————————– The Council of Nicaea in 325 worked hard to summarize a sound understanding of the Triune God in the face of Arian error. They explained how Jesus, the Son, exists in eternal relationship with the Father. | Read More…

We’re excited that this week’s post is from our good friend Huw Williams. Huw was part of Cor Deo in 2011 and is now pastoring the International Church of Torino, Italy, with his wife Alison and daughter Kitty. Check out his personal blog here. ——————————————– I’ve been blessed from reflecting on the early chapters of Acts | Read More…

With Me

April 15th 2014 by Posted in Blog 1 Comment

Luke knew how to write a Gospel.  Okay, all four of them did, but I’ve been looking at Luke this Easter.  I’ve been struck by his personal attributes of tenacious attention to detail and his tender awareness of people. As a physician and man of science he was a diligent researcher who sought out the | Read More…

Help

April 12th 2014 by Posted in Blog 1 Comment

When I was growing up my grandparents had an in-ground pool in their backyard.  It was the place to be on a hot summer afternoon in Oregon.  Here the whole extended family would gather around good food and the coolness of the swimming pool. We all loved these days. As the family enjoyed each other | Read More…
