This is an update report written by a brother traveling with SlimJim.

Today went very well, I think the Spirit moved with strength through Pastor Jim’s messages. He talked about some hard topics that some people do not like to speak about. We continued with regeneration, and then moved to propitiation and adoption. The pastors really started to see the beauty of salvation and how each facet really involves God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and how it can even apply in ministry, not just to the body or unbeliever. Pastor Jim is starting to feel the effects of standing up for 8 hours for the past 3 days. Please pray for him in that God will continue to sustain him and allow him to have enough energy and healing of his body to preach for next week as well. We still have X more day left here before we go on to the next country.

This is a guest review by our Michael Coughlin.  He is a friend who reads this blog and his website can be found at here.  Check it out.

Nothing ought to replace our weekly attendance and loyalty to our local church, but I’ve realized through the years how much I enjoy reading blogs and listening to other sermons during the week.

That said, I have been listening to and greatly enjoying the preaching of S. Lewis Johnson through the book of Romans. See here: http://sljinstitute.net/category/pauls-epistles/romans/

I want to share something that Pastor Johnson pointed out in his sermon about Romans 3:23 “Man Be Justified With God?”

Note: I am currently available to have some internet in my trip overseas to teach theology.  The internet is not as strong here especially at night so I’m glad I got to post this.J. Warner Wallace.  God’s Crime Scene for Kids: Investigate Creation with a Real Detective.  Colorado Springs, CO: David C. Cook, September 1st, 2017. 144 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This was a kid’s version of the author’s same book titled “God’s Crime Scene” in which the author J. Warner Wallace presents a case for the existence of God using Classical and Evidentialist’s arguments.  When I was reading it I couldn’t put the book down because it was that captivating.  The following is my thoughts on the book.

Presuppositional Apologetics and Personal Evangelism

Sounds rather ominous, doe it not? Really deep stuff! Well, not necessarily. First, let’s define our terms.

“Presuppositionalism is a school of Christian apologetics that believes the Christian faith is the only basis for rational thought. It presupposes that the Bible is divine revelation and attempts to expose flaws in other worldviews. It claims that apart from presuppositions, one could not make sense of any human experience, and there can be no set of neutral assumptions from which to reason with a non-Christian”.[i]

 “To evangelize is to present Christ Jesus to sinful people in order that, through the power of the Holy Spirit, they may come to put their trust in God through Him.”[ii]

This is a guest review by Seth.  He is an online friend and his blog can be found at A Poor Wretch.  Check it out.

Several years ago, widespread corruption among the world’s biggest banks emerged out of conspiracy theory into breaking world news, revealing the long hidden secret that what are known as Libor rates had been illegally manipulated for decades. Libor rates significantly affect everything from mortgages to student loans. As banks falsely reported artificially low borrowing rates, these banks were implicated together in the theft of many billions of dollars from millions upon millions of people. The magnitude of corruption was especially historic, not only in an international sense, but spiritually speaking was representative of the volume and degree of mass-coordinated evil that exists in broad daylight, as well as a truly perfect example of mankind’s utter and desperate need of God’s grace to have hope of salvation from the idolatry of money.

Heaven. Edited by Christopher W. Morgan and Robert A. Peterson. From the Theology in Community series, published by Crossway (Paperback 287 pages).
 Purchase: Crossway | Amazon
It seems I can’t get enough of books on heaven. When I first saw this in our Church Bookstore I ignored it as I already had a backlog of books to read. Besides which I already had two Randy Alcorn offerings, John MacArthur’s Heaven and Charles Spurgeon. I’m glad I eventually capitulated.

I got to admit I’m not much of a music guy.  Sadly I don’t know the words to most of my favorite hymns.  A few weeks ago I preached at another church and they sand this song and it really ministered to me right before I got up to the pulpit.

I enjoyed the video I linked because its congregational singing though of course its not just a church but a conference for the video.

Here’s the lyrics and may it minister to other preachers, teachers and believers!

As a Christian this might be an important question to think about: What is the difference between remorse and repentance?

Both repentance and remorse is associated with the emotions of sorrow. But there are differences between the two.  So what are those differences?

I had to verify this is real before I posted it.  Royal Dutch Airlines posted a tweet advancing the LGBT agenda but it was so ironic.

They posted this picture:

They posted the following words:

It doesn’t matter who you click with. Happy 🏳️‍🌈

Here’s the link to the original tweet:

I think sin makes people blind to irony.  Go ahead look at the picture and take all the time you need.

Last year I shared a conference called the Veritas Conference.  While last year’s topic is on the Gospel this past year’s conference is on the theme of Sanctification.

How much do you know about what the Bible has to say about Sanctification?

Brother Vincent has nearly reblogged all of our posts over the past few years. I know he’s reblogged some of your blogs too.
Pray for him, his health and the hospital staff treating him.

Earlier in the week I started expierencing abdominal pain consistent with diverticulitis. My suspicions were confirmed yesterday, it is another bout of diverticulitis with a 4 centimeter abscess.

This marks the 3rd time this has happened, with a heart attack in between. Surgery is not an option at this point do to the abscess and the surgical tean cannot extract using a J.P. drain.

I won’t be exercising my awesome re-blogging skills 😎

Please pray for me and all the hospital staff treating me.

In Christ,

Vincent
