Spiritual Healthnuts

In John’s third epistle, he writes “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” Perhaps we could rephrase his petition this way, “I pray that your physical health were just as good as your spiritual health.” He is writing in a day when Christians had

Praying for ISIS

The reports are sickening. Over the past several days we have heard one story after another recounting the attacks of Muslim militants upon Christians in various parts of the middle east. These attacks are precipitated upon the terrorists’ belief that the conflict between the Western world and the Muslim world is a religious conflict. They are

More thoughts on April’s book of the Month The Holy Spirit, by Sinclair Ferguson… As we saw in the last post, Ferguson’s book on the Holy Spirit is so helpful and valuable because he does not merely camp out on the subject of tongues and miracles and various spiritual gifts, but rather He provides a foundational study
