Inside the Fence

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

I cannot express how much I enjoyed our recent tour of England. I will try to post some thoughts and pictures from some of the highlights. A question one must answer when planning a tour such as this is, “How do we keep the Lord’s Day holy?” Just because one is on vacation, we are […]

A Gracious Tour Response

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

What a wonderful tour! All of us are very thankful to the Lord for His abundant mercies to us. We enjoyed safety (once or twice someone stepped into the street without looking to the right) and good weather, but mostly wonderful moments of friendship and a profound sense of the power of God’s workings among […]

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

This is our last full day of touring, and it’s a great place to finish. I have spent two terms studying at Oxford, and find it to be a beautiful and envigorating city. In the morning, a local guide will take us on a walking tour of the city, viewing the amazing ancient architecture of […]

Christ and His Brethren

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

From John Owen’s Commentary on Hebrews 3:15-19 This is a ground of unspeakable consolation unto believers, with supportment in every condition. No unworthiness in them, no misery upon them, shall ever hinder the Lord Christ from owning them, and openly avowing them to be His brethren. He is a brother born for the day of […]

The Problem with Words

Tuesday, February 10th, 2009

Human life is all about communication. God made us to be social creatures, interacting with others over a wide spectrum of occassions. From the womb onward, we express ourselves. Parents nurture their children; friends encourage friends; people reach out to one another. But most importantly, the Lord speaks to us.

Puritan Patristics: Archetypal Theology

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

Let’s consider two key points. The study of the writings of their predecessors were important for two reasons—it established right and wrong doctrine and practice: 1. Archetypal theology and practice. How does one establish orthodoxy and orthopraxy? By building from scratch? No. Rather it is by recognizing the work of the Spirit in the church […]
