“Salvation is not…escaping some dreadful fate of judgment…at the hands of a wrathful God; rather, it is being saved to ourselves.” She leaves no place for the cross or the atonement.
The debate on the emergent church at the recent Christian Book Expo has been fluttering about the blogosphere. If you haven’t watched it, you really should. It’s long, about 90 minutes, but rich with telling moments and important observations. The debate is between five men. Kevin DeYoung holds out courageously for orthodoxy in the face […]
In spite of the millions in California who democratically voted against gay marriage, the Governor, leading politicians, and all the major California newspapers are calling to overturn Prop 8. Power, it would seem, lies with ideology not democracy. For instance, for twenty–four days since November 4, the reputable (?) LA Times, has run at least […]

In the interests of full disclosure, I must expand the information given in InsideOut # 49 (“New ‘Progressive Christianity’: an Old Liberal Swindle”) The Emergent Village and “progressive” Christian liberalism are but a drop in the progressive bucket. To their left, “cultural creatives” or “new progressives” are brimming over with an optimistic vision for taking […]
(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).

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 […]
