April 13, 2018 Resources: Be Ordinary; Church & State; On Race

This article aligns with a theme I landed on in an adult Sunday School class a few years ago: live an ordinary, faithful, plodding, daily life of faithfulness.

Dr. Kevin Bauder writes a helpful essay explaining the meaning of the historic Baptist distinctive known as the separation of church and state.

Though I disagree with Doug Wilson on certain important theological points, he is one of the best writers on current theological and cultural issues that you will find. His response to some recent bilge from The Gospel Coalition is eloquent, gracious, and accurate.



How Can You Tell If Your Pastor Loves You?

Two well-timed articles in light of what I will be preaching on this Sunday (“A Pastor’s Role”).

First, read Erik Raymond’s description of a loving pastor.

Then, read Bob Johnson’s description of an unloving pastor, who ironically (and tragically) is usually interpreted as a loving model.

Hebrews 5:14 tells us, “But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.” (NASB)

After reading the contrasting descriptions, can you discern the difference? Whether you can or can’t, keep exercising!
