In light of the upcoming fifth year anniversary of the Bin Laden raid, I review this book for this weekend’s reading recommendation.

SEAL Target Geronimo

Chuck Pfarrer. SEAL Target Geronimo: The Inside Story of the Mission to Kill Osama bin Laden.  New York, NY: Saint Martin’s Press, November 8th, 2011. 240 pp.

At first I wasn’t sure of whether or not I should read this book, having read other works surrounding the mission that killed Bin Laden especially the work No Easy Day.  I was glad that I read it because this book definitely manage to contribute to the conversation of what happened that day.  What makes this book unique is that this book was written by a former SEAL who interviewed the SEALs operators involved with the Bin Laden raid.  From these interviews the author attempt to synthesize all the accounts from the SEALs (some of which the author admit were conflicting) in order to give a better narrative of what happened that day.

A few days ago I wrote a post on how to get the most out of Matthew 6 in applying it to worrying.  I found this message by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones and thought it was quite relevant in light of the previous post.

Enjoy!

face of skeptic when another bible contradiction answered

This is a look at another alleged Bible contradiction from Luke 9 according to the Skeptic Annotated Bible.

Today’s question: Who is for or against Jesus?

Those who are not with Jesus are against him.

He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me, scatters.” Luke 11:23

Those who are not against Jesus are for him.

for he who is not against you is for you.” Luke 9:50

I think when we examine the passage carefully this will be shown to be not a contradiction.  Let’s take a closer look:

A few days ago I listened to a sermon by Mark Dever for this year’s Together For the Gospel’s Conference in which Dever spoke on “Endurance Needed Strength for a Slow Reformation and the Dangerous Allure of Speed.”  I thank Vincent for sharing them with us!  I was blessed by the message and while it wasn’t expository preaching Mark Dever instead shared some important wisdom as to why pastors, church leaders (and by application, all of us) needs patience and aim for slow progress rather than believe the lie that many and quick is the goal.

It is a longer message but I listened to it while doing other things.  I was blessed and perhaps you would too!

In another forum online someone asked the following question:

What are some good scriptures that can help through depression anxiety and other issues? I have a lot of these issues and sometimes I find it hard to find the right things to calm me down.

Personally Matthew 6 have been very helpful for me in my own life.  Specifically Matthew 6:25-34.  Here’s my quick thoughts and expanded from the original comment.  Perhaps it might be helpful for others on WordPress and Social Media as well.

Note: This Sunday I had a more unusual apologetics’ styled sermon that took up more time preparing than usual so I didn’t get to post earlier.  Contrary to what appears on my blog, I don’t preach apologetics as a hobby horse.  I am more of an expository and Gospel driven preacher on Sunday morning (or at least I work hard to try to be).

I try to write posts each Sunday to encourage God’s people concerning attending and serving God in the local church.

It is worth it

Tonight as I got home I was thinking about how the word labor appear so frequently in the Book of 1 Thessalonians from when I preached this five years ago:

I don’t what it is but it seems there are some within the LGBTQ community that is obsessed with politicizing things with cakes and bakery.

Earlier this week a so-called Pastor name Jordan Brown who is a homosexual accused Whole Foods of writing an anti-gay slur on his cake.  You can watch his original video here:

It’s turning out that things are not as simple as Jordan Brown claim, and I think its safe to say that his claims are problematic if not down right fraudulent.
