Today on the podcast, Dr. Jones and the crew discuss the upcoming conference in October 7-9, 2016, “The Two Loves: A Biblical Responses to ‘Gay Christianity’,” featuring in particular two leading experts in the field, Dr. Michael Brown and Dr. Rosaria Butterfield. We hope to show that the stakes for the church go far beyond the rightful concern for the practical issues of living in a paganized culture, for the preservation of free speech rights, and for the pastoral care of individual suffering homosexuals who deserve Christian love. We must go deeper, to identify the prior ideological ways of thinking, either the pagan worship of nature or the Twoist beauty of God’s good creation. These notions go to the very definition of existence which is what Scripture brings to the world. Without seeking to make homosexuals feel guilty, we must show the implications of our Christian message for purity, holiness and the radical transformation made possible by the Twoist Gospel. We intend to show that those powerful, positive elements will be lost if pagan-inspired “Gay Christianity” becomes a defining element of Christian practice.
(Audio Lecture) Identity from Within or from the Mind of Christby Joshua Gielow | April 17, 2020
Dr. Butterfield gives a brilliant analysis of how Christ delivers people caught in the practice of homosexuality, by putting to death the works of the flesh, including the attempt falsely to justify “celibate” homosexual desire as pleasing to God, and by embracing God’s creational truth for his glory and our good. The culture’s definition of […]
Shifting Sandsby Dr. Peter Jones | April 10, 2020
“Lord, what are you saying during this crisis?” That is the question on every Christian’s mind. The mighty, miniscule virus is slaying thousands every day. On March 29th, Dr. Anthony Fauci estimated that the US might see between 100,000 and 200,000 deaths before the crisis fades. Christians must yet remain calm, asking God to give us […]
An Elephant Called Fearby Rebecca Jones | April 8, 2020
But if we are to chase the elephant of fear out of our churches, we must allow God to face it down through the power of his love. “God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but of love, of power, and of a strong mind” (2 Timothy 1:7). If we are to face down the elephant of fear, we must do it by absorbing God’s forgiveness. “Perfect love casts out fear, because fear has to do with punishment” (1 John 4:18).
Spirituality: Mindfulness or the Mind of Christby Joshua Gielow | March 23, 2020
Mrs. Pamela Frost gives a most useful and dense comparative contrast between pagan “Mindfulness” and “the Mind of Christ,” showing clearly how the Mind of Christ distinguishes between the Creator and creation, while Mindfulness blurs distinctions and leads people into the pagan lie of “nonduality.” Eastern spiritualties work against having our minds set on Christ. The […]
