This week I’ve been running a contest giving away three sets of 26 books from Crossway, Baker Books, Zondervan, Thomas Nelson and many other fine publishers. If you haven’t already entered the contest, you’ve got until midnight (Eastern time)!
If all Scripture is breathed out by God (2 Tim. 3:16), then there is a unity to be found across the pages of the Bible. Without minimizing the differences of genre and human authorship, we should nevertheless approach the Bible expecting theological distinctives and apparent discrepancies to be fully reconcilable.

Exile — which is the ongoing state of the Church today as it was for Israel then — presupposes that we are in Babylon, not Jerusalem. And one of the major mistakes the Church has made is expecting Babylon to act like Jerusalem, to be like Jerusalem, to even recognize Jerusalem as something ideal to be. We see this in the way Christians keep trying to convince non-Christians that America is really a Christian nation and needs to start acting like it again.
Justin Taylor, with a few things we all need to remember.
Evangelism is not only winning someone to Jesus by the grace of God in the preaching of the gospel. It is also winning them to the church by that same grace and gospel. The local church is increasingly being thought of as optional by professing believers. In fact when I say something like, “You can’t do all that Christ calls you to do apart from the local church” I often get pushback online.
