I didn’t say which book in the subject line. Aren’t I provocative? We’ll see if there’s anything different in his new book.

- I’m far from acedemic September 2In case you haven’t noticed. I’m also not a teacher and really don’t have any authority. This quote would apply to me also: I’m a guy who reads too much on a narrow range of subjects that I scarcely understand who spouts whatever no doubt incorrect opinion occurs to him. No academics here, I promise […]
- Don’t let mental sickness affect judgement of spiritual maturity September 1The state of godliness is not to be judged of by the fears and sorrows in which it usually begins. A man’s life is not like his infancy at his birth. The fears and penitent sorrows, which foolishly fleshly sinners fly from, do tend to everlasting peace and joy; and perfect love will cast out […]
- God Is Love–And Many Other Things August 30I just finished reading The God Who Is There by D.A. Carson. The Kindle version is on sale right now for $3.99. It’s aimed at new Christians, but with all due respect, I don’t think he is one to write a book for new Christians. I learned a lot. He’s a quote machine. Because of […]
- Moderation Schmoderation August 27I believe in optimalation (or optimisation if you prefer) rather than moderation, which I’ve never really believed in. Scripture calls for ‘all’, ‘everything’, ‘more and more’ too often for me to believe in moderation in everything. Maybe I’m too much into the radical and crazy. Love the LORD your God with all your heart, with […]
- If you think you’re wise, you’re probably not August 26God wants us to compare ourselves to him and know that wisdom comes from him. If you have other verses/passages on that, let me know. There isn’t much difference between a fool and a wise person when we compare ourselves to God, which should keep us humble. The more we know, the more we know […]
- Breaking News: Depression Doesn’t Always Have a Cause August 25Tangled Up in Blue: Depression and the Christian Life – Reformation21 Actually, this is very, very old news. If you’d rather not read the whole article, here is a quote from it on something that I’d like more people to realize, along with another comment below it: Charles Spurgeon, who himself wrestled throughout his life […]

- God Is Spirit and So Are We August 18There are two messages to this post: Isn’t it amazing that being made in God’s image, we are also spiritual beings? The fact that we are able to be reborn spiritually, and with God’s Spirit in us is amazing beyond explanation or comprehension. This can only come from God. We can’t intellectualize ourselves into the […]
- If You’ve Got It, Don’t Flaunt It August 13Proverbs 12:23 - ‘A prudent man concealeth knowledge – “If a fool hold his peace he may pass for a wise man.” I have known men of some learning, so intent on immediately informing a company how well cultivated their minds were, that they have passed either for insignificant pedants or stupid asses.’ –Adam Clarke, […]
- Conforming to Jesus August 12I’ve always felt that Christians, especially men, are rather homogeneous in the USA. We’re supposed to conform to Christ, but if we look and act like most of the other Christian men, then we’re probably doing it right. If we live in suburbia, wearing a suit and tie to church, or at least one of […]
