adminNews and Updates0 Comments

We strongly believe that books are an important component of personal and family growth. As such we live in age where solid literature is available on an unprecedented scale. Father’s especially should be cultivating their minds and thought life in order to pass on solid doctrine as well as critical thinking skills to their families.

We were robbed!!!!

adminNews and Updates0 Comments

As a Reformed Baptist I understand the doctrine of Total Depravity permeates all of creation, especially those of Adam’s descendants. All of us are sinners and all of us are capable of perpetrating all manner of heinous behavior. But for the Grace of God anyone of us can fall into a life of crime. Even those of us who have tasted the Grace of God are still guilty of all sorts of quiet unseen crimes against the Sovereign of the Universe.

An Authoritative Appeal to Tradition?

adminCreeds and Confessions4 Comments

Over the years I have heard many objections to any sort of reference to creeds, confessions or church traditions. Some of them are valid. Whenever a creed or tradition is used to trump Scripture, the creed is being used as an equal authority to Scripture. I recognize that this is an abuse of a legitimate resource. After all, The Reformation was largely about Sola Scriptura. In the final analysis, where there is a conflict between creed and tradition, creed and tradition must  yield to the final authority of Scripture.

Reflections on Race and Transgenderism

adminGender Issues0 Comments

Since the LGBT movement gained traction only a scant few years ago, one of the arguments used to gain mainstream acceptance in our culture was that of racial inequality. There has been a regular drum beat to invoke the civil rights movements of the 1960’s as an equivocation of sexual discrimination on the part of LGBT persons.

Book Sales Making a Strong Comeback

adminNews and Updates0 Comments

I remember being asked years ago about the future of physical book sales in light of the digital revolution. I own a Kindle and do use it for certain types of recreational reading. There are some merits. However, a screen reader in no way compared to the delight and thrill of holding and handling a real live book. I answered many futurists and prognosticators that the long-term health of book sales would in no way be diminished by the likes of Nook or Kindle. A book is still a book.

What is True Worship?

adminConferences0 Comments

In 2005 and 2007 we sponsored conferences on the Doctrine of Worship. In each case Dr. Don Whitney visited us from Southern Baptist Seminary and presented a biblical as well as pragmatic approach to understanding the constituent components of what is meant by worship. Always advocating a biblical approach and standing on the Regulative Principle, Dr. Whitney presents a highly useful tool that should help believers navigate the tricky waters of worship planning.

Crisis in Science: Over Half of Reported Research Findings are Wrong

adminFaith and Science0 Comments

Fantastic podcast by Dr. Albert Mohler Jr. on Friday May 6, 2016. In it he cites 4 recently published articles demonstrating the failure of much of modern science. It it is not science per se that Mohler critiques. He rightly acknowledges that the Christian Worldview has been responsible for the scientific method as we know it. In recent years however, prominent and influential researchers have turned the scientific method on its head making outlandish claims that the universe is unreal, knowledge is unknowable and what we witness through our senses in illusory. On top of that 60% of all published papers cannot be duplicated or replicated making them patently false, yet they are received as true and valid. Students of apologetics, this is a must listen to audio.
