Every year there is a big Pastor’s conference where pastors and church leaders who believe in faithful expository preaching and the Biblical Gospel meet in Southern California call the Shepherd’s Conference.  It will be on March 4-6.

I have been blessed in the past by the fellowship, preaching and good food in this conference in the past.  I won’t be going to it this year.

Anyone on here that is going?

Here is the schedule:

Al Mohler

This was my notes on Al Mohler’s message during Shepherd’s Conference.  Shepherd’s Conference is a conference for Pastors and church leader at John MacArthur’s church.

John 15

We are seeing an increasing hostility to Christianity in the culture.  The danger is that Evangelicals think if we are clever enough we as Christians can be at peace with the world.

We are going to see in this passage multiple temptations.

There’s a big assumption among people today that there can be neutrality.

Shepherds conference assembly

I normally don’t like attending conferences as a Pastor (there’s too many out there).  But the one conference I look forward to as a Pastor is the Shepherd’s Conference.  It is a refreshing time for me as a Pastor to hear biblical preaching (rare in our day today in pulpits of many churches), browse through lots of books, get free books from the Conference, enjoy good food and awesome fellowship.  This year’s conference is on March 9-13.

As I’m looking forward to the conference where thousands of biblical preachers and pastors all over the US and the world head towards Los Angeles, I was also looking back at the last eight years attending Shepherd’s and asking myself, “Of all the sermons at the Shepherd’s Conference what were the most memorable messages?”  

I know there’s a segment of “silent” readers of this blog who attend the conference every year who never comment, so here’s a good time to make your first comment and share your thoughts.

 

Here are the two messages that stood out to me:

Inerrancy Summit 2015We’re trying to wrap our blog series on the Christian worldview, film and Comics soon because next week all three bloggers from Veritas Domain would reunite at The Shepherd’s Conference.  This year’s theme is on Inerrancy and is the biggest ever.  They have called it The Inerrancy Summit and have brought many different speakers that normally don’t come out but they are for this occasion such as Kevin DeYoung and Carl Trueman.

Lord willing we hope that next Tuesday through Sunday we would be able to blog our notes from some of the sessions along with recommended resources from the Bookstore and book sales.

Stay Tune!

Newsweek attacking the Bible pretty serious

Earlier in December I wrote a piece concerning the recent Newsweek article attacking the Bible titled “.”  Originally I was going to write a series of posts responding to Kurt’s hit piece but the Holiday season made it difficult.  But alas, there is nothing new under the sun and fortunately there have been many Christian responses to the article already.  Rather than be redundant, I thought I share in this post some of the responses out there available online already.

I think Christians responding to the article is good; it’s sad for me seeing how some people would only look up to these routine sensational pieces from Time and Newsweek and think it is serious scholarship against Christianity when there are scholarly responses out there.  I think the ignorance and pseudo-scholarship is so bad it’s a sin.

1.) New Testament Scholar Dan Wallace’s Predictable Christmas fare: Newsweek’s Tirade against the Bible

2.) Apologist James White’s “Eichenwald and Newsweek Refuted” Videos:

3.) New Testament professor Michael Kruger’s “A Christmas Present from the Mainstream Media: Newsweek Takes a Desperate Swipe at the Integrity of the Bible Part 1 and (Part 2)

4.) Seminary President Al Mohler’s  Newsweek on the Bible — So Misrepresented It’s a Sin

A doctrine of Scripture that has been under-utilized in apologetics has been the historic belief in the self-attestation of Scripture.  There is a Doctoral Dissertation on the topic: “The Self-Attestation of Scripture as the Proper Ground for Systematic Theology” by Matthew Scott Wireman.  Dr. Wiseman completed this thesis in 2012 through Southern Seminary, best known with its president Al Mohler.

Southern Seminary and Dr. Wireman has made the dissertation available as a PDF.  You can download it by clicking HERE.

Here is the description of the dissertation broken down by chapters:

This dissertation examines the Protestant doctrine of Scripture’s self-witness of divine authority. Chapter 1 examines the current evangelical milieu. The doctrine has become nearly obsolete in the discussion of systematic theology. Consequentially, wherein lies authority has been greatly misunderstood in Protestant circles.

Chapter 2 surveys the doctrine through the history of the church. Particular note is made of Augustine, John Calvin, John Owen, and Herman Bavinck. This chapter evinces the near consensus of the church that the authority for the Church is found preeminently in the Scriptures.

Chapter 3 summarizes post-conservative, Stanley J. Grenz and John R. Franke, attempts to ground theology in Scripture plus culture and tradition. This chapter does not offer a critique as much as it aims to represent post-conservatives in their own words.

Chapter 4 looks at how the Old Testament viewed itself–particularly through the ministries of Moses and the prophets. YHWH chose representatives who would speak to the covenant community and write down the stipulations and history of YHWH’s relationship with Israel for posterity.

Chapter 5 looks at the New Testament, which follows the paradigm instituted by the Old Testament. In the person and work of Jesus Christ, God’s promises find their fulfillment, which foments his commissioning of the Twelve Apostles to be his spokesmen.

Chapter 6 ties together the threads that cohere in the two testaments of Scripture. It makes explicit the claims of Scripture that God is a se, he communicates with his creation, he uses spokesmen, and his written Word is its own witness for its authority.

Chapter 7 defines the doctrine of Scripture’s self-witness and applies it to tradition, culture, and the task of apologetics. The chapter explicates the thesis of the dissertation that Scripture’s self-witness must be the ground of systematic theology.

Shepherds Conference

Recovering from this year’s Shepherd’s Conference.  It was so encouraging, edifying and equipping!

The last evening on Friday John MacArthur made a major announcement that Shepherd’s Conference next year’s theme is going to be on the doctrine of Inerrancy.

There’s going to be a lot of big name speakers (not that it’s big name in of itself is important, but names of men whom God have used mightedly because of their faithfulness).  It’s anticipated to be the biggest Shepherd’s Conference ever.

Here’s the promotional video:

There’s going to be RC Sproul, Ligon Duncan, Sinclair Ferguson, Paige Patterson, Carl Trueman, Al Mohler, etc.

It’s going to be March 3rd-8th, 2015.
