The great Christian apologist Greg Bahnsen died very early in life but did a lot during those 47 years. He is buried at Rose Hill Cemetary in Southern California.
I could not get a clearer picture because it was in the middle of the day and this was the best picture I could get. The sun was shining very bright.
Next to his grave is that of his father and mother. His mother Virigina has been a source of some Bahnsen’s private collection.

Imagine: A reality show of Pastors of L.A.
How about Biblical pastors of L.A?
John MacArthur of Grace Community ChurchAlex Montoya of First Fundamental Bible Church
Dr. Felix of Los Angeles Bible Training School
Chris Barksdale of The Hollywood Church
So for those who goes to a Word of Faith, worldly, materialistic and seeker sensitive church like those in the reality show but are looking for solid Biblical churches with expository preaching of the Word and emphasis on holiness, these pastors and their churches is where you should go.
What other pastors could you add on here?

This book is a response to all the new books coming out about those who went to heaven and came back, those with Near Death Experiences (NDE), etc. The author, Hank Hanegraaff, is currently “The Bible Answerman” and overall does a good job dealing with the subjectivity of these “I’ve gone to heaven” books, and how their account contradict the clear teaching of Scripture and one another’s description of heaven. I enjoyed how Hanegraaff also dealt with the issue of hell, and a defense of hell from some of the recent attacks by some within the Evangelical quarter. With this said, there were somethings that I disagree with the book or think it could have done better. His discussion of libertarian free will (LFW) assumes it rather than defends it, and seems to be important in his view of end things. I think his discussion about good angels never sinning even in future heaven hits a dilemma concerning LFW. At times he even sounds like a Calvinists! Furthermore, while the author does believe in a physical reality of our future existence, he does at time have tendency to be driven by a spiritual vision model in his hermeneutics (versus a new creation model). The book does expound Hanegraaff’s Partial Preterism and here he does not have anything new to contribute beyond what Gary DeMar, RC Sproul and others have said. I kind of wished he dealt with some of the objections Christian raise concerning Partial Preterism. I also wished he could have dealt with more scholarly Dispensationalists. At times he was question begging and could have been more nuance–such as his discussion of Rob Bell on hell and also objecting to Dispensationalists Premillennial view because of Revelation 21’s promise that there will no longer be any sorrow on earth–while not accounting for Revelation 20 before chapter 21 and a defense of re-capitulation. I still think Randy Alcorn’s book on heaven is the best of recent book on heaven no matter what view of the Millennium you take.
I write this review an hour before a funeral for a saint at our church.
It was a good reminder about our eternity and keeps our ministry in perspective.

From Justin Taylor’s blog, here’s an interview with Dr. Oliphint, professor of apologetics at Wesminster Theological Seminary, of his latest book, Covenantal Apologetics.
Apparently there’s a special one week sale of the new book at 60% off, that is, at the price of 8 bucks.
While I will get the book, I’m wondering if there’s anything new Dr. Oliphint will say that other Presuppositionalists haven’t said already.
