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.

Sye Ten Bruggencate is an encouraging brother in the Lord who has taken Presuppositional apologetics to the streets and have taught it in a way most people can understand.

In a recent message he speaks about the importance of also giving the Gospel.  Several brothers told me to watch this when I came back home from my missions trip.

Here’s the message:

Enjoy!

Christian theistic evidences Van Til second edition

Cornelius Van Til. Christian Theistic Evidences.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, February 29th, 2016. 288 pp.

There is a lot of misunderstanding today concerning the role of evidence in Cornelius Van Til’s apologetics which makes this book a valuable primary source for those who want to understand Van Til’s view.  I think understanding Van Til’s position is important whether one agrees with him or not.  This is especially relevant given the rising popularity of Presuppositional apologetics.  This particular volume is the second edition of the book and it has helpful footnotes with commentaries from the editor K. Scott Oliphint who is currently the professor of Presuppositional apologetics at Westminster Theological Seminary (this is where Van Til taught at when he was alive).  In this review I shall look first at Oliphint’s contribution and then the rest of the book that was penned by Van Til.

Lord willing this week I want to write several posts on training pastors and leaders for the churches overseas especially in areas that are considered frontiers missions field.  For those interested you might also want to read my post from last year titled “.”

green berets illustration missions theological education

I appreciate blogger Dan Cartwright, a former Green Beret and career soldier.  I’m using an illustration from his world that I think is helpful in describing the need and means of bringing theological education to local national pastors in the context of frontiers missions.

US Special Forces (Green Berets) must not be confused with Special Operation Forces.  Here’s how Wikipedia describe the missions of US Special Forces (Green Beret):

The primary mission of the Army Special Forces is to train and lead unconventional warfare (UW) forces, or a clandestine guerrilla force in an occupied nation[citation needed]. The 10th Special Forces Group was the first deployed SF unit, intended to train and lead UW forces behind enemy lines in the event of a Warsaw Pact invasion of Western Europe[citation needed]. As the U.S. became involved in Southeast Asia, it was realized that specialists trained to lead guerrillas could also help defend against hostile guerrillas, so SF acquired the additional mission of Foreign Internal Defense (FID), working with Host Nation (HN) forces in a spectrum of counter-guerrilla activities from indirect support to combat command.[citation needed]

Special Forces personnel qualify both in advanced military skills and the regional languages and cultures of defined parts of the world. While they are best known for their unconventional warfare capabilities, they also undertake other missions that include direct action raids, peace operations, counter-proliferation, counter-drug advisory roles, and other strategic missions.[13]

Note what I highlighted in bold from the quote above.  I think the great examples of the Green Berets that has bearing for our discussion is their ability to train other forces and being skillful in how they go about it.  I think in some sense this is analogous to how we in the West should bring theological education overseas in the context of frontiers mission fields or area that requires creative access.

pray for church

As part of our Sunday posts calling people back to the church who are Christians, I want to begin this post by saying that I admit some situations are not easy.

But when was the last time you prayed for your circumstances with church?  When was the last time you prayed for God to open up the opportunity for a biblical church to attend?  Or even for the Lord to bring a new church plant?

I don’t know your situation.  God does.  Pray.  Asks others to pray for you too!  Ask us in the comments!  But don’t forget to pray!  God listens and hears the prayers that is His will–and being a part of a body and fellowship is part of His will!
