Not sure if this is going to be a regular feature or an occasional thing, but here are a few links I like:
The 2012 Ligonier National Conference, “The Christian Mind,” starts Thursday at 1pm EDT. During the conference R.C. Sproul will be joined by Sinclair Ferguson,Robert Godfrey, Michael Horton, Steven J. Lawson, Albert Mohler, Stephen Meyer, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Del Tackett. Together they’ll consider the importance of building a Christian worldview, the role of education in the Christian life, science and God’s natural revelation, defending the faith, and many other topics.
Simply visit live.ligonier.org, give a gift of any amount to help cover this significant cost to the ministry, and we will provide you with a link to watch the 2012 National Conference live. However, if you are a Ministry Partner, attending the conference, or cannot afford to make a donation, we offer you the live stream without additional cost.
The whole point of God’s initiative is illustrated in Mark 1:16–20 when Jesus begins gathering his disciples. It’s very important that Jesus was seeking his own disciples, because the custom was for disciples to seek out their own teachers. But of course it makes sense that the one who came to seek and save the lost would begin by seeking out his disciples himself.
For several years the Reformed Church in America has approached the issue of homosexuality as an opportunity to have our cake and eat it too. On the one hand, we have numerous official statements which condemn homosexual behavior and affirm the normativity of heterosexual marriage between a man and a woman. And on the other hand, we can easily compile a growing number of incidents where our official statements are being disregarded with apparent immunity. We have a position that says one thing and a practice that allows for another. The time has come for the RCA to make up its mind on homosexuality. There are basically two different paths the denomination can take.
Just a quick reminder that the Gospel Project webcast will start at 2 pm CDT; really looking forward to seeing this content rolled out. Watch it live here.
