Interview with MLJ – Here’s an interview of Martyn Lloyd-Jones that has just been posted to YouTube for the first time. “The program was one of a series made by the television company concerned in which Joan Bakewell interviewed public figures of all stripes who were trying to change society in some form or other, and so it was not religious programming – It had a broader mandate.”

The Falls Church Anglican has two new albums out: We Will Proclaim is a live concert recording, and a really good one at that; I’ve been listening to it on repeat for a couple of weeks now. For Our Salvation is a Christmas album that is also worth checking out.

But I’d like us to reconsider not simply expositional, but verse-by-verse preaching as a means to bridge the gap between this generation and the millennial generation for several reasons…”

    The Glorious End without the Difficult Means

    Just as Olympic athletes cannot realistically expect to win a gold medal unless they strictly discipline themselves toward victory, Christians cannot hope to prevail in the Christian life unless they take a serious, disciplined approach to it. Yet lurking in the background is always the temptation to hope that we can have the result of…
