By Gary Gilley.

Gary Gilley has written a fantastic article for the latest Think on These Things newsletter. Entitled “The Gospel According to Rick Warren” it points out some of the inconsistencies with Warren’s ministry. The article is an excerpt from the revised edition of Gilley’s excellent little book, This Little Church Went To Market.

You can read the article here.

White Horse Inn has a basic doctrine quiz you may enjoy. I’m proud to say that I got a perfect score on it (it is, after all, basic). You can try it out here. Here are some sample questions:

1. Jesus was God, but only appeared to be human.

2. Jesus was the first of all God’s created beings.

3. Jesus had a human body and divine soul.

A site worth reading.

Jeri, who has been reading this site as long as anyone, has updated her site Sober Minded and dedicated it to the memory of her son Joseph who died last year at the age of 23. You can read about Joe by visiting her site and clicking on the button at the top right.

“I hope you will listen. I hope that you will begin to sober up, mentally, physically and spiritually, by taking heed to the very words and commandments of God from the pages of Scripture, applying them to your life and determining to give over all your thoughts, hopes, dreams and desires to Jesus Christ. It’s a day-by-day, often a moment-by-moment undertaking, and not for the faint of heart. Yet the very One who has commanded us is also the One who will give us the power to live lives that please Him, and in so doing, bring health, hope and healing to the ones we love.”

Find out why Phil Johnson would say “Da Shizzle BAM Bizzle.”

Phil Johnson continues his well-spoken tirade against people who will peddle just about anything in the name of Jesus. It’s enough to make the discerning Christian sick to his stomach.

Greg Koukl of Stand To Reason responds to Richard Abanes.

Richard Abanes, in an interview at A-Team blog, said, “And people who have made such false accusations need to be held accountable, especially the more influential critics of Warren such as John MacArthur, Todd Wilken, and Greg Koukl—three men whose ministries have done a great deal of good. But now their irresponsible accusations about Warren have really caused me to question their motives and their concerns for truth. At the very least, they have been terrifically careless in making the comments that they have made. I deal with some of their accusations in my book. Truth—that is what is important.”
