My very pregnant and now overdue wife took the dogs for a quick walk. I’m going to use my time wisely and share a few links for your edification. God willing, a lengthier piece will post later this week. I’m examining love and how the modern evangelical view of love is boiled down to sentimentality. How do we love unbelievers biblically? It seems, to me at least, that love is largely viewed as avoiding confrontation even if it means watering down the wonderful Gospel of Jesus Christ. The meaning of love is being systematically changed by our relativistic culture and Christians are buying in to it. I fear we’re abandoning truth in an effort to “love” and in the process we’re actually “loving” unbelievers right in to hell. Okay…around the blogosphere we go:
Michael J. Kruger is writing a series called “The Ten Basic Facts about the New Testament Canon that Every Christian Should Memorize.” The post is insightful and well worth your time. The second post in the series can be found here.
R.C. Sproul rarely disappoints so take time to read about the 3 Distinctive Aspects of Biblical Faith:
“I think the whole concept of faith is one of the most misunderstood ideas that we have, misunderstood not only by the world but by the church itself. The very basis for our redemption, the way in which we are justified by God, is through faith. The Bible is constantly talking to us about faith, and if we misunderstand that, we’re in deep trouble.”
Lastly, John MacArthur writes about modern culture’s assault on biblical standards within the church. He specifically address’ how feminism has crept in to the evangelical church and is undermining God’s design for men and women in His church.
