Its author is Calvin University physics professor Loren Haarsma. According to the review, Haarsma outlines various evangelical proposals for harmonizing human evolution and original sin. “Drawing from a dozen recent books on the subject, Haarsma runs through the four main options.&r...Read More

An Article by Tom Schreiner, January 14, 2022 Many questions have recently been raised about complementarianism. We are keenly aware of the many stories of pastoral and spousal abuse—some of whom are noted complementarians. Such stories make many people wonder if complementarianism is simply a form of power grab, an attempt to hold onto male authority in order to exercise their selfish will. Cultural questions have been raised as well. Is the complementarian visi...Read More

[First published at www.desiringgod.org on March 19, 2022] Article by Sam Storms Theocentricity is a big and imposing word that simply means “God-centered.” To be theocentric means that God himself is the core of all you believe, and the governing, gravitational force of all you do. And in my judgment, no one in recent memory more readily embodied this perspective on life more than the late J.I. Packer (1926–2020), especially in his classic work, Know...Read More

[The following article was written by Michael Brown and is well worth your serious consideration.] By MICHAEL BROWN Published on March 11, 2022 When you’re on the side of truth, you can present the facts as they are without manipulation, exaggeration, or distortion, since those facts will speak for themselves. But when you’re hiding something or trying to obfuscate, facts are your enemy. That’s the case with the misrepresentation of Florida’s re...Read More

Some may be wonder if it’s possible to place too much of an emphasis on the spiritual gift of prophecy. I’m sure there are some churches that focus on this one spiritual gift in an inordinate way, perhaps to the neglect of other gifts of the Spirit and disciplines of Christian living. Having said that, let’s consider the way in which the NT portrays this one gift. First, we know from the events on the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2 that Peter, quoting the ...Read More
