But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

I know he meant well, but he came off sounding a little pompous, more like a professional wrestler on Saturday afternoon TV than an ordained man of God: “The Devil doesn’t take a day off. He doesn’t take vacations, and I don’t either.”

How to deal with a church disrupter

Written by

He is almost in every church.

In fact, the “he” may be a “she,” but I’ll use the masculine pronoun for simplicity.

He is the church disrupter. Unlike church bullies, the disrupter rarely attacks leaders directly. He is good about stirring up dissension, but he seems to...

The best way to defend the gospel is passing it on

Written by

Defending the gospel is a biblical calling and a noble pursuit. The apostles, and Paul in particular, were continually on guard against the advance of false teachers, warning the church and its leaders not to depart from the faith once for all delivered to the saints. But the ways we typically...

Editorial: Our Glorious Triune God

Written by

Why an issue of SBJT focused on various essays from historical theology on the Trinity? There is a sense in which that question should never be asked given that reflection on the doctrine of the Trinity is always necessary and vitally important for the life and health of the church. It is almost a...

Introduction

One of the more evocative elements of Gregory of Nazianzus’s (hereafter, Nazianzen) teaching on the Trinity is that of a “superabundant” one which moves to two and stops at three (Ors. 23.8; 29.2). If we associate the “one” with the Father, we see a...

Trinity and Economy in Thomas Aquinas

Introduction

The doctrine of the Trinity is a catholic teaching, a common possession of Christ’s whole church which expresses our understanding of the one who possesses and keeps us by his redeeming grace. Yet this doctrine that ought to foster a sense of unity among all orthodox believers has...

5 tasks every pastor needs to do today (and every day)

Whole books have been written on pastoral ministry so, even an attempt at summarizing it in a short blog article will fall short of the mark. But I would suggest that several principles rise to a high level of importance when considering the subject of pastoral ministry.

Hospitality is not an optional ministry

Written by

Welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. (Romans 15:7)

While much hospitality focuses on individuals or families opening their homes to others, a vital practice which enables “house churches” to meet (e.g., Romans 16:5; 1 Corinthians 16:19), I am focusing...
