On Christianity and Politics – If we believe in the sure triumph of Christ, why do we allow ourselves to be drawn in to the very unsure world of political conflict? There is a good reason to be drawn into the world of politics as a Christian.
If we go to church just to be with one another, one another is all we will get. And it isn’t enough. Eventually, our deepest unmet needs will explode in anger at one another. Putting community first destroys community. We must put Christ himself first and keep him first and treat him as first and come to him first and again and again. He can heal as no other can. Can, and will. If we come to him. – Ray Ortlund
The Invisible Church – Much confusion has resulted and continues to result from misunderstandings regarding the meaning of the visible church, the invisible church, and the relation between the two. In this message, Dr. Ligon Duncan will seek to clarify the meaning of this important biblical doctrine.
Where Are The Jeremiah’s When We Need Them – Like Jeremiah’s time, we have come to believe the present is decided by the policies of a nation rather than the will of a holy and compassionate God. We continue to buy into the myth that our hope is in Washington or on Wall Street.
The love which a pious man bears to God and goodness, is not so much by virtue of a command enjoining him so to do, as by a new nature instructing and prompting him to it; nor doth he pay his devotions as unavoidable tribute only to appease the divine justice, or quiet his clamorous conscience; but those religious exercises are the proper emanations of the divine life, the natural employments of the new-born soul. – Henry Scougal
