Xander Schauffele Defeated Tony Finau with a birdie four on the first hole of a sudden death playoff to win to win the HSBC Champions at Sheshan Golf Club in Shanghai, China, today. Finau drove into a sand bunker and was forced to lay up on his second shot short of the water fronting the eighteenth green. He then missed his twenty-foot birdie putt while Schauffele easily two-putted for his birdie to get the win. Twenty-nine year old, long-hitting Tony Finau… Read more

My First Christological Discussion with Dr. S. Lewis Johnson—Section C Dr. S. Lewis Johnson and I then discussed the Arian Controversy and the Nicene Council of 325. Church historian Eusebius had been a prominent figure at the council. He took a middle position between the teaching of Presbyter Arius and that of Bishop Alexander, thus being dubbed a “semi-Arian.” Athanasius, the bishop’s assistant, afterwards became the determined defender of the Nicene Creed for decades. Lewis said Athanasius was right about… Read more

My First Christological Discussion with Dr. S. Lewis Johnson—Section B I then asked Dr. Johnson about 1 John 4.15. It reads in the NASB, “Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.” He replied, “Mormons and others say they believe that Jesus is the Son of God. But you must believe in the biblical meaning of the term Son of God to be saved, and they don’t because they don’t believe… Read more

My First Christological Discussion with Dr. S. Lewis Johnson—Section A By now, in the mid-1980s, Dr. S. Lewis Johnson was still living in Dallas while commuting back and forth to Chicago to teach two days per week at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS). I phoned Lewis and requested to come and see him to discuss “something important in theology.” I didn’t tell him specifically what it was about. He welcomed me, as he had on other occasions. We met alone… Read more

Dr. S. Lewis Johnson Writes the Foreword in my First Book The situation was quite the opposite with my dear friend Professor S. Lewis Johnson. But I did not talk to him about whether or not Jesus is God until I had studied it a few more years and then I felt prepared somewhat to discuss it with him. I met Dr. S. Lewis Johnson in 1969 when I attended Believers’ Chapel while playing in the PGA Tour’s Dallas Open…. Read more

Discussing Identity Christology with Drs. Clowney, Houston, and Sproul Days later, I expressed my thoughts about this to my close friend Jim Hiskey. Jim had discipled me for years. We also were partners in the Lord’s work—mostly the PGA Tour Bible Study. Jim’s brother and PGA Tour player, Babe Hiskey, and I had co-founded this group at Jim’s suggestion. During most of the 1960s, Jim was on the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ. He then hooked up with Dick… Read more

Reconsidering the Trinity and Jesus Being Fully God About ten years later, I began to change on a more important theological subject. I had learned the doctrine of the Trinity from Thieme and thus that Jesus is God. That is what almost all Christians believed. Again, it happened due to my interest in Bible prophecy. In 1980, I became troubled about what I had been taught about something Jesus taught in his Olivet Discourse. He said concerning his yet future… Read more

(Originally drafted in February, 1989, with recent editing. Successive parts will be posted every 24 hours.) My Theological Change from Pretribulationism to Posttribulationism I was born in 1941 in Seattle, Washington. I grew up attending Sunday school at the Nazarene Church near my home. (My uncle pastored it two years.) At 13 years of age, I prayed privately with my Sunday school teacher to receive Jesus into my life as my Lord and Savior. That’s when I was born again…. Read more

Brooks Koepka continues to prove why he was chosen as the Player of the Year last year, having won two majors. He moved into World #1 today as he won the PGA Tour’s CJ Cup at Nine Bridges on Jeju Island, South Korea, by four strokes over Gary Woodland. It was Koepka’s fifth PGA Tour win and third in the past eleven events he has played. The 28-year old, long-hitting Brooks Koepka has thrust himself into a position in pro… Read more
