God’s Lordship in Interpretation

Yesterday I referenced an article on the Trinity and hermeneutics. In that article it references 2 other articles that I found beneficial in my discussion of exegesis. The article starts out by saying: Since philosophical and theological circles are increasingly dominated by concerns for hermeneutics, it is important to work out explicitly the implications of God’s Lordship for hermeneutics. Because of the vastness of the implications, I can only begin the task in this article. God’s Lordship in InterpretationVern Sheridan Poythress see also

Preach Gospel to all people; ‘trust God with the results’

It warms my heart to see aggressive evangelism encourged. Dr. Mark Dever really encourages us to agressive evangelize but leave the results with God. Intuitive we know this, but many of evangelistic methods today are more manipulative than Faith oriented. Read this and be encouraged.

Building around shared Biblical Convictions

This is in What Baptism Portrays Local Christian communities, called churches, are built around shared Biblical convictions, some of which are essential for salvation and some of which are not. We do not define our covenant life together only by the narrowest possible set of beliefs one must have to be saved. We believe rather that the importance of truth and the authority of Scripture are better honored when communities of Christian faith define themselves by clusters of Biblical convictions and stand by them, rather than redefining the meaning of membership each time one of their convictions is disputed.

SBC Discussion on Calvinism

I though the discussion between Dr. Page Patterson and Dr. Albert Mohler was beneficial to the convention because both men have a desire for the Great Commission, and because it put real theological discussions on the map. I have my own opinions but I want to emphaise that it shows how iron sharpens iron without being antogonistic. I hope the convention can have discussions about other theological issues (justification, the nature of truth and pragmatism in ministry, eschatology, etc.) like this as well. You can read on this discussion at: The Calvinism Discussion with Dr. Patterson and Patterson, Mohler: Calvinism

Giving Thought To Colloquiums, Cooperation, Alliances, Being Together And Denominations.Here is a great article that deals with differences people have but working together in ministry in reation to faithfulness and relevance.  I love the humility that Mark Dever conveys his thoughts on these issues and is open enough to even see that he can change to.  Mark introduces his thought with the statement:  I think the most basic practical division among evangelical pastors today may be between those who pursue faithfulness and assume relevance and those who pursue relevance and assume faithfulness.Just click the folliwng title and read this article.  I think it will
