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

Aint Nobody Got Time for That

Written by

Twenty-eight minutes.

That’s the time Dr. White took on yesterday’s Dividing Line to explain why he didn’t have time to discuss Christian Liberty.

White explained that he had been traveling in a tri-state area. He’s been busy. He’s busy now. So he doesn’t have time to talk about Christian Liberty just yet....

Southern Baptists are our own best cheerleaders. The ubiquitous, distinguished sound of back-slapping can be heard long after the annual convention is held. Regardless of whatever stereotypical posturing-reboot the leadership masterminds (this year it was providing yet another chest-thumping denunciation of racism), we’re all sure...

Perry Noble, who has often irked the ire of polemicists for sermons that fall short of sound Biblical exposition, for secularized sensationalism and for occasionally yelling at church members who desire deeper discipleship, has been relieved of his post for behavior relating to alcohol consumption.

In 2013, Noble approved of alcohol consumption in...

From across the pond…

This afternoon, Saturday 9 July 2016, the General Assembly of the United Reformed Church (URC) voted in favour of allowing its local churches to conduct and register marriages for same-sex couples. This means that the URC is now the largest UK denomination to freely permit the celebration and registration of marriages...

As much as the journalists at Christian News Network were fired upon for daring to question the Lord’s Anointed, I don’t blame them for firing back. Here, they put the Young, Restless and Reformed on display in what amounts to a lasciviousness parade.

Apologia’s ReformCon conference covered a host of issues, such as the...

Is Noble gone? Is he just a rotten drunk with a bad marriage as news reports suggest? Is this just a publicity stunt?

When a Calvinistic church in Arizona chose to raise funds through booze and tattoos and then chose to post about it in a video online while talking about its “coolness,” news sites covered the story as sensationally as the videographer meant it to be.

Worldliness is departing from God. It is a man-centered way of thinking; it proposes objectives which demand no radical breach with man’s fallen nature; it judges the importance of things by the present and material results; it weighs success by numbers; it covets human esteem and wants no unpopularity; it knows no truth for which it is...
