Trinity Sunday

Yesterday was Trinity Sunday. I always wish my church would celebrate that day in conjunction with the Church Year, but I do understand it is not set up to follow those things that much. Nevertheless, I would like to pass along a post from John H. Armstrong that he posted yesterday so that everyone who reads my blog can at least think about this portion of the Church Year that has started this week. =)

Here is Dr. Armstrong’s entry: Continue reading Trinity Sunday

Fellowship of Mere Christianity

This is a great new fellowship that I hope and pray will do more to unite Christians under one name and banner. I found out about it from P. Andrew Sandlin here. Please visit their site and see what they are up to. Pray for the first meeting in Texas and hope for more things like this to succeed and grow the Church’s important doctrine of catholicity.

Here is their purpose:

The Great Debate

David L. Bahnsen is the son of the late Dr. Greg Bahnsen. He has a good web site full of articles that I highly recommend reading whenever you have the chance.

A couple of days ago I was looking through some of his articles regarding his father, Dr. Greg Bahnsen. I stumbled upon one article entitled “My Favorite Part of the Great Debate.” The Great Debate was between Dr. Bahnsen (a Christian) and Dr. Stein (an Atheist) and has been well known as one of the best debated to listen to for representing how to effectively do Presuppositional Apologetics with an atheist.

Anyone interested in this debate should check out this web site to find the MP3s of the debate for free download.

Here is David Bahnsen’s favorite part!

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Dr. Bahnsen: Are all factual questions answered in the same way?

Dr. Stein: No, they are not. They’re answered by the use of certain methods, though, that are the same – reason, logic, presenting evidence, and facts.

Dr. Bahnsen: All right. I heard you mention logical binds and logical self-contradictions in your speech. You did say that?

Dr. Stein: I said. I used that phrase, yes.

Dr. Bahnsen: Do you believe there are laws of logic, then?

Dr. Stein: Absolutely

Dr. Bahnsen: Are they universal?

Dr. Stein: They’re agreed upon by human beings. They aren’t laws that exist out in nature. They’re consensual.

Dr. Bahnsen: Are they simply conventions, then?

Dr. Stein: They are conventions, but they are conventions that are self-verifying

Dr. Bahnsen: Are they sociological laws or laws of thought?

Dr. Stein: They are laws of thought which are interpreted by men and promulgated by men

Dr. Bahnsen: Are they material in nature?

Dr. Stein: How an a law be material in nature?

Dr. Bahnsen: That’s a question I am going to ask you

Dr. Stein: I would say no

[MODERATOR: Dr. Stein, you now have an opportunity to cross-examine Dr. Bahnsen]

Dr. Stein: Dr. Bahnsen, would you call God material or immaterial?

Dr. Bahnsen: Immaterial

Dr. Stein: What is something that is immaterial?

Dr. Bahnsen: Something not extended in space

Dr. Stein: Can you give me an example of anything other than God that is immaterial?

Dr. Bahnsen: The laws of logic

[MODERATOR: I am going to have to ask the audience to hold it down please. Please. Refrain from laughter and applause. Can you hold that down please?]

Wilson vs. Hitchens

For those of you who have not heard…

Doug Wilson and Christopher Hitchens will be debating their views against each other over at Christianity Today! The Debate is over “Is Christianity Good for the World?” This is going to be a great and lively debate between a great Christian pastor and a popular atheist.

Here is the hilarious jest that Wilson made over at his blog. Enjoy!

Chris Hitchens' Book

Douglas Wilson's Book Cover Making Fun of Hitchens

For those of you who don’t know. Doug Wilson has written many wonderful books on the family and Christian education. The title of Wilson’s book above is a real book he’s written. It’s just hilarious that he dressed up like Hitchens and made a book cover!

I could hardly stop laughing. 🙂

For more on Wilson’s view of satire and Trinitarian skylarking, see A Serrated Edge. I’ve read this book and it is awesome!

Blogs and RSS Feeds

To everyone who follows blogs, I would like to offer a helpful option.

If you have ever visited the main page of this web site, you will see a “recent articles” listing that displays several different blogs and is updated almost daily. The only way this happens is thanks to Google Reader.  =)

If you don’t know what that is, just go here and find out. Google Reader is the most helpful tool I have found for making your web surfing fast and easy. I follow many different blogs, but because of Google Reader I can scan through upwards of 100 blog entries in under 15 minutes and mark all the entries that I want to read later that day/week.

Well, this is where this post comes into play. I have a private and a public list of things that interest me. My “shared items” is the list you see on the front page of my web site.

Now, what I wanted to point out was the fact that you too can add my shared items “feed” to whatever RSS reader you use and you will have access to all the different blogs that I follow all at one location.

For those of you who use RSS… here is my feed page for all my shared items.
But, if don’t use RSS and you just want to book mark a page to visit regularly… You can see my shared items all together on one page or on the home page of my web site.

Either way, I hope you enjoy the items I share!

The Reformed Pastor – Free Audio Book (Unabridged)

The Reformed Pastor

This is a book I highly recommend listening to when you get a chance. Especially if you are involved or plan to be involved in the ministry. Best of all… it’s FREE!


Free Audiobook of the Month

In his introduction, “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” This charge from Acts 20:28 only is the beginning of a solemn and overarching task to be personally involved and disciple all of your congregants. Richard Baxter’s plea for shepherding his flock continues with a charge to pastors to verify their own spiritual walk and then walks them through various disciplines, strategies and goals to guide and instruct their congregation.
