Complete Series of Dr. W Robert Godfrey on the End of Christendom

I have really been enjoying this series of lectures by Robert Godfrey in which he discusses the end of Christendom (and makes so many Dutch jokes).

Does Rahab Show Us That It’s Sometimes Okay to Lie?

Does the Old Testament story of Rahab tell us that it’s sometimes okay to lie? I am inclined to agree with this author’s perspective.

Time to Bring Out the Fruit

“Every culture, in spite of the fall, retains elements of the image of God. For those with eyes to see, these positive elements of a culture quietly point to the wisdom, beauty, and goodness of God, a remnant witness which can’t help but spill out even in cultures that have been cut off from the truth for centuries.”

Loving Those That the Woke Leaves Broke

This article asks whether we are prepared to love and serve those whom modern ideology has harmed. “While the culture war continues to rage, I would like to very briefly ask my brothers and sisters in Christ to poke our heads above the fray of headlines and to consider the years ahead and how they might impact our actions today.”

    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…
