In a March 21, 2022, article on the Christianity Today on-line website, Bonnie Kristian wrote a piece entitled, “What Atonement Theories Tell Us About Our Politics.” I’m not concerned today with the “political” dimension to her article. My focus is her endorsement of Christus Victor. She rightly points to the risen Christ, whom we celebrate at Easter, and then asks the question: “But how did our salvation take place, exactly?” S...Read More

Julian Lennon, now 59 years old, John Lennon’s son, promised long ago that he would honor his father by never singing the song, “Imagine.” He recently changed his mind. I’m not concerned with his reasons for this. My focus is the song itself. Haunting in its melody, so soothing in many ways, and yet profoundly misguided and incoherent, please don’t join Lennon and others in imagining the sort of world he proposes. I’m sure you know it...Read More

April 13, 2022 Michael Kruger Well, soon it will be Easter. That wonderful time of the year when we remember (and celebrate) the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. But, not all will be celebrating. There are many that find Easter to be a senseless holiday—apart from, perhaps, the joys of Sunday brunch or chocolate eggs. After all, it is argued, we all know that people don’t rise from the dead. And there are no reasons to think it happened in the case of ...Read More

On April 7, 2022, Trevin Wax posted a fascinating and informative article on the Gospel Coalition website in which he identified and described the many different Christian denominations in the U.S. He briefly described their history, their form of governance, their theology, and other unique features that set them apart from one another. This got me thinking about my church, Bridgeway, here in Oklahoma City. People often ask me, “What kind of Church is Bridgeway?&...Read More

By Andrew Wilson | Thursday 29 July 2021 Corporate singing is back, even if it remains cloth-covered in many churches (including mine), and reintroducing it to people who have not sung for nearly eighteen months is vitally important. Why? A couple of nights ago I had the chance to speak to our worship team, and I tried to answer that question, specifically by explaining why song is such a unifying expression of worship. Singing unites five things which are often separat...Read More

Today a book review was posted on the Christianity Today website that calls for a very brief response. The book is, When Did Sin Begin? Human Evolution and the Doctrine of Original Sin. 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
