Dr. Vern Poythress is one of those incredible intellectual gift to the Church.  He’s a Christian professor, a Reformed theologian, New Testament scholar, expert on hermeneutics, linguist, a Presuppositional apologist and philosopher who was a prodigy that went to Cal Tech before he was 18 and have several doctorates including a PhD in Mathematics from Harvard University.

He’s recently was interviewed for a podcast on the Missions Podcast from ABWE International.  It’s a wonderful discussion on multiple things I’m excited about:  Missions, Language Presuppositional Apologetics and Theology!

I would like to ask for prayers for my ministry in July and August. Besides regular pastoral visitations and evangelism I typically preach at least 4 times during the week but this summer it is going to be my busiest season of ministry.  Towards the end of summer I’ll be going overseas to teach in undisclosed countries on two different courses in theology.  At the same time there’s a lot I’m doing stateside: there’s a retreat, a conference and some other guest speaking at other churches. My biggest prayer request?  Please pray for wisdom and strength for my studies.

This is a video by Global Frontiers Missions titled “State of the World / The Task Remaining.”

It is an insightful video concerning the task of missions.

It made me have a burden not only for the lost but specifically for in countries that require creative access to those countries and areas to reach the lost.

Here is what one of the speakers, Mike Gendron, from the conference has to say about TMAI International Symposium,

You Can Now Listen to the Symposium on Biblical Inerrancy.  Over 700 pastors and church leaders, representing 73 nations, attended the 2015 International Symposium which took place in conjunction with The Shepherd’s Conference in March. There was such a buzz in the air as the speakers addressed biblical inerrancy in global missions. It was especially encouraging to see the speakers’ passion and The Master’s Academy International ministry partners’ commitment to this central doctrine. The audio presentations of John MacArthur, Paul Washer, James White, Mike Gendron, Mark Tatlock and the other 4 speakers can be heard here: Audios from TMAI International Symposium

I was privileged to attend this conference that took place one day before the Inerrancy Summit which was hosted by The Shepherds’ Conference.  To see different speakers and conference attendees from different parts of the globe was encouraging.  To speak to pastors and missionaries collaborating, magnified the importance of evangelism not just domestically, but globally.  There were also other ministries who came that serve churches here in the US and also around the world.  For example, ministries that specialized in book distribution to China, Mercy Ministries such as Children’s Hunger Fund, and other ministries such as evangelism to Muslims in the U.S. were here.  They both understood the Great Commission and serving the Lord together for His glory.  I encourage you to check out the audios and listen to them for your own edification.  Topics on contextualization, linguistics, Bible translation, etc., were discussed.  Also here are some notes from one of the speakers that I posted on our site a few weeks ago: God’s Written Revelation is necessarily an Inerrant Revelation

Here’s an update for the end of 2007 on Reformed Theological Seminary’s mp3s provided on iTunes for free since since it first debuted. Veritasdomain wishes you a Happy New Year for 2008.

Revisting itunes.rts.edu has revealed some changes:

“Educational Ministry of the Church” under Practical Theology A couple Chapel messages for Fall 2007 have been updated. And finally 2 new Seminar series “Worship Wars, Holy Kisses, and Names for God: An Evangelical Model for Contextual Theologizing” by Dr. Steve Strauss and “The Calvin I Never Knew” by Dr. Frank A. James III

They divided the plenary sessions from the seminar sessions for the 2007 and 2006 Westminister Confessions for Today Conferences.

They removed the commencement and other special event lectures.

And finally they added a large amount of videos, mainly promoting RTS, while organizing the original brochures by campus location.
