A La Carte (5/20)

GM2:8 – Living Waters (think Ray Comfort) has released an iPod/iPhone app called GM2:8. It allows you to use a Way of the Master kind of gospel presentation in a whole series of different languages. You can find it free at the app store.

MacArthur and Sproul on Baptism – “Infant baptism or believer’s only baptism? For the past two days on Renewing Your Mind, Drs. R.C. Sproul and John MacArthur have discussed their views on the Biblical meaning and mode of Christian baptism. Dr. MacArthur presents the credo-baptist position and Dr. Sproul presents the historic paedo (infant)-baptist position. Listen in as these two friends discuss a historic doctrinal divide.”

The Glory of Plodding – Also on Ligonier is a good article from Kevin DeYoung on “The Glory of Plodding.” “What we need are fewer revolutionaries and a few more plodding visionaries. That’s my dream for the church — a multitude of faithful, risktaking plodders. The best churches are full of gospel-saturated people holding tenaciously to a vision of godly obedience and God’s glory, and pursuing that godliness and glory with relentless, often unnoticed, plodding consistency.”

Men’s Retreat – In June I’ll be speaking at a weekend-long men’s retreat at Bonnechere Baptist Camp (West of Ottawa, near Algonquin). My topic will be “Living Virtuously in a Digital World.” If that sounds like your thing, registration is open.

Because I’ve Been Forgiven is part one of a powerful video from Peacemaker Ministries.

  • Do Not Envy the Wicked

    Do You Envy the Wicked?

    It takes a long time for sinful instincts to become pure, for tendencies toward what is evil to be transformed into tendencies toward what is good, lovely, and pleasing to God. The man who quits drugs will still react when he catches a whiff and the woman who gave up alcoholism will still struggle when…

  • Lets Hear It For the Second Parents

    Let’s Hear It For the Second Parents

    While today we tend to associate step-parents with divorce, in previous centuries they were almost exclusively associated with death and with either widow- or widowerhood. In an era in which lifespans were shorter and, therefore, a greater number of parents died while their children were still young, there was a distinct and honored role for…
