Piper on Prophecy & God’s glory…

This week I stumbled across two excellent resources from John Piper:

1.  Biblical Texts to show God’s zeal for His own Glory, compiled by John Piper.  If you aren’t familiar with ‘Christian Hedonism’, these passages may astound you when read together like this.

2.  A recent sermon from John Piper – Using our Gifts in Proportion to our Faith part 1.  This is an excellent sermon on the prophetic, which I found Biblical, balanced, and challenging.  Be encouraged to check it out.

My cup runneth over: Blog Love

I’ve sadly not had an original idea, nor the time to develop one if I had it, lately, but that’s alright because everyone else has been oozing great blogs as of late! Here’s a little ‘blog love’ for Tuesday, November 13th, 2007… Read the rest of this entry »

Convergence

CONVERGENCE (iTunes podcast)- a sermon by Sam Storms on “Reformed Charismatic” theology. There is also QUESTION AND ANSWERS session available.

Many of you know that Sam is such an influence that I’ve partially named my very-soon-to-be-here 2nd son after him (Samuel Tucker Haddon Lewis – he’ll answer to “Tucker”, though). If you don’t have the time to read his many excellent books, at least listen to this teaching, and the question and answer session. Very solid.

WRONG

Anyone having even a cursory understanding of the Bible, or having read a number of my recent posts such as the one posted HERE, or THIS ONE, or THIS OTHER ONE OVER HERE must surely understand why THIS is wrong on so many levels that I can hardly begin. But THIS puts the icing on the cake. I must honestly say that, even as a ‘Charismatic’, I can sincerely understand why so many desire to distance themselves from all things ‘Charismatic’. Disappointing.

God help us!

Speading the Love…Blog Love

There have been so many incredible posts these past few days that I just need to spread the love…

Fundamentally Reformed asked the question “Is Calvinism a man-made Philosophy?”

Internet Monk gives some great guidelines for “Talking to Young People about the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church“.

Though I’m wary of his use of the word, Terry Virgo argues for the importance of Apostolic ministry in the church today, and also admits where certain emphasis on Apostolic leadership has sometimes resulted in a lack of good Bible teaching – it’s all in “Church Leaders“.

Lastly, Resurgence has posted a great summary of his engaging e-debate with Centurion of TeamPyro…read every detail HERE.

Lots of good blogging going on right now – hopefully I can get a post with some substance out later this week.  I’ve got a doozy brewing, and I fear that heads are going to fly once I post it.  Be warned! 😉
