Loving Jesus More Than Theology

J.A. Medders | April 9th 2019

One of the greatest dangers for studious Christians is loving the study of God more than God himself. We love books. We love to love God with our minds. Yes and amen. So did the Apostle Paul; he asks Timothy to bring his cloak and his books (2 Timothy 4:13). God commands us to love him with our minds (Matthew 22:36–37).... continue reading

 

7 Signs That You're a Cage-Stage Calvinist

J.A. Medders | April 4th 2019

Calvinism is a beautiful thing—when we Calvinists don’t ruin it.

For too long Calvinism has been linked to arrogant, fiery, and argumentative Calvinists who seem like the only cure for their cruelty is time in a steel cage. Diagnosis? A Cage-Stage Calvinist.... continue reading

 

Unpacking a Controversial Passage: 1 Timothy 2

Tim Chester | March 27th 2019

Charles Spurgeon’s Humble Calvinism

Charles H. Spurgeon | March 26th 2019

Brothers, hold the five points of Calvinist doctrine, but don’t hold them as babbling questions.

What you have received of God, do not learn in order to fight with it, and to make contention and strife, and to divide the church of God, and rail against the people of the Most High, as some do. But, on the contrary, love one another as brothers and sisters, and hold the truth in love, and seek after the unity of the Spirit and the perfect bond of charity.... continue reading

 

Sharing the Gospel at Easter

Eleanor Elms | March 21st 2019

I have to admit, when I think about Easter, evangelism doesn’t spring to mind. We’re pretty comfortable with Christmas evangelism; inviting neighbours along to carol services, perhaps engaging with friends on what Christmas means for them and how they celebrate. But Easter? Most of my friends don’t really care about Easter. They’re glad for a long weekend and a few months of creme eggs, but that’s about it.... continue reading

Chris Green | March 15th 2019
