8 Items for Christian Parents to Ponder 

 

The other day, the old Puritan John Flavel took me out back and slapped me around for a while (metaphorically, of course). I have been reading his classic work The Mystery of Providence and he dedicates the second chapter to an explanation of why we need to worship God for his kind providence in our childhood. He wants his readers to acknowledge the privileges that were theirs simply because of the time and place in which they were born. Along …

Three great soundbites that make terrible theology

You’ve definitely heard these, and probably said them too

“Christians shouldn’t feel guilty. Jesus has taken it all.”

Again, this is wonderfully true. When we’ve confessed our sin, we are meant to know liberation from guilt.

However, we do need to confess our sin!

I recently was involved with a man who had been having an extra-marital affair for more than a year. He felt that his marriage was sexually disappointing and so he deserved to have sex outside of his marriage. He lived guilt free for over a year.

I really wish he had felt guilty. That particular Christian should have felt guilty. He was guilty! Until the point where he cracked and felt guilt and then confessed his sin, he could have no assurance that Jesus had paid for his sin. He was very much in the category of 1 Corinthians 6 v 9:

“Do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God?”

“Christians shouldn’t feel guilty” is a good sound bite for the repentant Christian, but a terrible one for the person who remains in their guilt and is unrepentant.

3. “God hates the sin but loves the sinner.”

Mother’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to render genuine honor that is more than something that Hallmark demands of us

John Wesley once remarked, “I learned more about Christianity from my mother than from all the theologians in England.”

We all desire to honor our mother on Mother’s Day, and rightly so. What about showing honor an unbelieving mother? How can you honor God and your mother?

Is Homosexuality Really the Worst Sin? |

 

Homosexual intercourse has an unusual status in our moral discourse because it is, in a peculiar way, going against nature. The apostle Paul describes it like this: “God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error” (Romans 1:26–27).

4 Methods To Organize Your Prayer Life 

 

Not too long ago I was speaking to a friend who was lamenting the way he had spent his time the day before. He had become convicted that his prayer life was languishing and that it would benefit from a measure of organization. A couple of hours later he had to move on to other activities and realized that he had put a lot of time into thinking about prayer and organizing prayer, but little time into the actual act …
