Living Out Part 1 – The Shift – Christian Article

The Church’s Shift in Addressing Homosexuality In my seminary days, Dr. Howard Hendricks warned us that the church tends to drift from one extreme to another. He declared that the church tends to be balanced only for a brief moment when it is swinging from one end of the pendulum to the other. I am reminded of this assessment as we see a major shift taking place in the way the church is addressing homosexuality. Some has been for…

Microphone Testing, Living Out, Traditional Textism and the Longer Ending of Mark – Christian Article

Started off with technical issues, to be honest (tried a new microphone that didn’t work out well, yet, anyway), and then eventually discussed Tom Buck’s currently running series of articles on Living Out. Then moved to the Traditional Text position (TR) finishing up with a look at the endings of Mark.  We will be back on Thursday of this week.  Don’t forget the South Texas Bible Conference this weekend, and then next weekend the Sola Scriptura conference in Morgan Hill, CA…

Living Out Part 2 – A Closer Examination – Christian Article

A Closer Examination of Living Out In my past experience, many Christians have not demonstrated compassion towards homosexuals and those struggling with same-sex attraction. As I shared in my first article, I found it common for Christians, even pastors, to express ridicule and contempt towards homosexuals rather than love and compassion for them. Therefore, some of the shifts occurring among evangelicals regarding how we help those struggling with same-sex attraction are for the good. Leading the way in this…

Living Out Part 3 – Unbiblical Counsel – Christian Article

The Unbiblical Counsel of Living Out Paul tells the Colossians that they have been saved for the purpose of being presented “holy and blameless and above reproach” before Christ (Col 1:22). This requires, he says, that they “continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister” (Col 1:23). Therefore, Paul’s goal is to…

Living Out Part 4 – A Call to Immediate Action – Christian Article

Living Out and a Call to Immediate Action When Paul wrote young pastor Timothy in the church at Ephesus, he reminded him of this sobering reality of ministry: “Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers” (1 Timothy 4:16). As pastors, we must keep a close watch upon our lives to be sure that we are walking in godly ways lest we…

Upcoming Debates, Tom Buck and Sam Allberry, Steven Anderson and Textual Traditionalism – Christian Article

Started off with some exciting news about possible upcoming major debates and pointing folks to the Travel Fund as the most important way of helping us to make this happen.  Then we looked at the fall out from the posting of the four-part series of articles by Pastor Tom Buck interacting with materials found on the Living Out website before turning back to textual issues in finishing up our response to Steven Anderson’s video on chapter three of the…

Cultural Madness, Atonement Issues, Textual Traditionalism – Christian Article

A morning DL for us here today, the only program for this week. We started with some commentary on current cultural madness and rapid decline, including a grandmother bearing a child for her homosexual son. Then we looked at issues relating to the atonement, first in comments from Taylor Marshall and Timothy Gordon on the Mass, and then from William Lane Craig on the extent of the atonement.  Finally we transitioned into a review of an article by Dr.…

A Remote Dividing Line Discussing Abortion, Gender Issues, and Then Transitioning to More IFB Craziness – Christian Article

Needed to do the program remotely today from my home (and aside from one slip up, it actually worked quite well!).  Discussed the amazing (and disgusting) tweets put out by a woman saying “goodbye” to the aborted baby she murdered as if this was an act of love on her part—tough way to start the program, I know.  But when we discussed the high school French teacher who lost his job for refusing to call a girl a guy.…

A Quiet DL (Because James Has Almost No Voice) – Christian Article

Had some technical issues so the live stream did not go very well today.  Talked a bit about the trip to Owensboro and the upcoming G3 Conference.  Then looked at a few texts on the biblical teaching on the world’s hatred of the Kingship of Jesus, then looked at the Netherlands and their strong secular move against Christian belief within their borders on the issue of human sexuality. Talked a bit about the radicals in our own borders, and followed…
