Preaching: The Abuse of Redemptive-Historical Preaching, Part 3

Preaching: The Abuse of Redemptive-Historical Preaching, Part 2

Dear Church Family, Two weeks ago, I sought to explain the proper definition of redemptive-historical preaching. I also attempted to explain how this form of preaching is often abused and provided some examples and evidence of the abuse of redemptive-historical preaching to be on the lookout for. You may read part one of "Preaching: The Abuse of Redemptive-Historical Prea...

A High (and Prioritized) Ecclesiology

Dear Church Family, In the last two lessons of our online "Inquirer / New Member" Sunday school class, we have been discussing and learning about what it means to support the work and worship of the church. As part of these lessons, we studied some ecclesiology. I am convinced that one of the major problems in evangelicalism today is a low ecclesiology. Ecclesiology simpl...

An Oversimplified & a Mathematical Galatians

Dear Church Family, Having just concluded our sermon series in Paul's letter to the Galatians, I thought that a good way to review would be try and write a brief (and oversimplified) summary of the book. Additionally, I sat down and tried to imagine what Galatians might look like if it was written from the perspective of a math teacher to his second-grade class (in this c...
