I need some more time of studying before I begin my Series: Is Justification by Faith Taught in the Old Testament?  I bite off more than I can chew this week in terms of ministry and blogging.

Since its Sunday here’s a sermon from a dear brother name Michael Coughlin that he preached on a few days ago.



His sermon is titled The Invitation.

Here’s the sermon description:

This is for a group of guys in my church with whom I am going over the apologetics’ book “Ultimate Proof of Creation” by Jason Lisle.  It is a book that teaches Presuppositional apologetics that engages apologetics at the level of worldview.  Cornelius Van Til was instrumental in beginning this form of apologetics and others have developed and applied it.

I thought the following questions might be helpful for other individuals and other small groups to facilitate discussions and learning. The following are questions for chapter 2 of the book.  (For a discussion guide for the previous part of the book see this post on the ).

As part of my daily devotionals I try to translate a few Greek verses from the New Testament every day courtesy of blogger Vincents Artale Jr.

A few days ago he posted on John 5:22.  Here’s my translation followed by some quick thoughts of meditation from that verse:

Peter Ross Range.  1924: The Year That Made Hitler. Boston, MA: Little, Brown and Company, January 26th 2016. 336 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase:  Amazon

This was an enjoyable read on history.  The author in the beginning of the book mentioned about how few historical works have focused on this important critical year for Hitler and his rise to fame and recognition in 1924.  I can see that there is truth to his claim; as I think back to my previous readings on the Nazi and Hitler there’s more discussion about Hitler’s rise to power situated in the 1930s rather than his turning point in the 1920s.

Kind of slow to getting to the blog after a long week of unusual amount of ministry.

I’ve been meaning to respond to a certain Tom Chantry who has made some accusation against theologian John Frame.  A few months ago someone attending Westminister Seminary at Escondido sent me a link to Chantry’s blog attacking theologian John Frame titled “Re-Framing Reformed Baptist Doctrine.”  I have seen this link go around elsewhere on facebook.  (The post and blog has since been made private).  Now personally I don’t get riled up when Christians disagree, so long as it is done charitably.  But I thought the post was rather off the mark by a long shot; it was as if Chantry had an ax to grind.

One of the troubling claim Chantry made was the relativism of John Frame’s theological method.  Chantry’s claim of relativism and subjectivism goes together.  In this post I want to document Chantry’s claim and also demonstrate that’s not case from looking at John Frame’s own words.
