It was a rare temptation, but by God’s grace I resisted. Now I’m glad to have found the live blog of this conference. Unfortunately, they are charging for the audio. Good work Garrett for getting it covered on the blog. You can check out the compilation post here.

“It is the Spirit that gives life–He is the Life-giver; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever–there is no profit in it. The words that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life.” John 6:63 Ever wonder if you are doing something in the flesh? Ever consider whether what you are doing, as you […]
Our pastor spoke to us on a recent Sunday morning on the difference between “holiness” and “holier than thou”. Doctor Hadley gave several verses to point out specifically what holiness is but spent a great portion of the sermon on the latter issue, the sin of being holier than thou. Our main portion of scripture […]
Since 2006 when I started blogging, I’ve read a continual battery of degrading things about our convention and many of her leaders. The wearisome drone of belittlement, impugning, accusation, and maligning has, at times, stirred me to comment with ire and disgust. Other times I’ve written posts to encourage us to “grieve not the Holy […]

The audio from the sermon is now online. Thank you for fighting and winning the war on inerrancy, but quit fighting over secondary issues to the gospel. Affection for Jesus Christ wanes where the gospel stops being primary and secondary doctrines rise up to take its place. This was the message delivered by Matt Chandler […]

I’ve had some internal conflict the last few weeks about my blogging. This is nothing new, and I expect most Christians have struggled with the right use of this technology. Seeking a global audience has always strained my own pursuit of humility, and I’ve often questioned the best use of time. Tonight, I’m under specific […]
Sometimes, while scanning blog feeds, the posts start to mix together and produce interesting insights. Tonight was a good example. First, take a look at this Baptist Press post by Keith Manuel (Louisiana Baptist Convention employee). He writes about the digestive dangers of too much grain for sheep and then makes a point about Christians. […]
Update: Baptist Press has also written about this story. According to this story from Associated Press, our former SBC President Frank Page will be announced as an adviser to Obama’s revived White House Office for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. The advisory council is scheduled to be introduced Thursday 2/5/09. Other advisers will include a Jewish […]
The New Testament keeps pointing me to local communities of believers as the primary visible outworking of the church. There are occasional times of cooperation, and submission to apostolic leadership. But mostly the local church is busy preaching the Gospel and living out the implications of God’s Grace. So, I’m a typical young pastor trying […]
