Should John 7:53-8:11 Be Moved to a Footnote?

Yesterday at Kenwood Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky, Jim Hamilton preached a sermon on John 8:12-30. It was typical of Jim’s sermons: loaded to the brim with exegetical and biblical-theological insight, passionately delivered, and punctuated by a summons to faith in Jesus, the light of the world. I love serving with Jim, Denny Burk, and [Read More...]

CBMW Is Doubling Down in 2014

In 2014, we’re not laying back. We’re doubling down. We have had two friends of CBMW offer to match end-of-year donations up to $10,000. We’re thrilled at this [Read More...]

The Gospel and Obedience in Christian Parenting

A couple of great pieces popped up this week about Christian parenting. Few subjects are more vexing today, particularly as many young Christian parents either did not grow up in godly homes or did not receive much training in how to be a godly father and mother. First, John Piper’s piece on the absolute necessity [Read More...]

Eric Metaxas at CPAC: Aren’t We, Um, Glad Wilberforce’s Religion Affected His Politics?

Eric Metaxas has been in the news of late. He was at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota for a talk and Q&A with John Piper and Jason Meyer (video above). Earlier today, he gave a notable speech on religious freedom at CPAC, the conservative shindig. Here’s a swatch from the broader talk: In my [Read More...]

Announcing a Week of Announcements for CBMW: First, the Website!

Some of you are aware that I’m the Executive Director of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood. I’ve been loving my work since I started formally in January 2013, and we’ve been pulling together various threads since then. As you may know, CBMW is in its fourth decade of operation, having been started in [Read More...]

Great News: Four Less Abortion Clinics in Wisconsin

Got two resources on the fight against abortion for you. First, a Huffington Post piece today noted the closure of four Planned Parenthood clinics in Wisconsin (HT: Sarah Pulliam Bailey). Somewhere, the angels are rejoicing. Four less houses of death. God is good. Bless you, Scott Walker, and your courageous public leadership. State governors and legislatures, we [Read More...]

What You Most Need Is God Himself

I just heard this song this week. I think I’d heard it before, but not as powerfully as in the chapel of Southern Seminary this past Thursday, February 14. John Piper was about to deliver his quiet and moving sermon, which meant that there was an electricity in the air. The chapel itself was full [Read More...]

Al Mohler on Global Gospel Promotion

This video, announcing this collegiate conference in February 2013, is beautifully done and deeply inspiring. I appreciate Al Mohler for many reasons; one of the most important is that he has done careful thinking on global cities and how they relate to the spread of the gospel. His co-speaker at the Resolute conference, John Piper, has done a great [Read More...]
