Learn to Confess Your Sins

• June 16, 2008 • Comments (6)

Confession is a much neglected discipline in Protestant life, despite the clear biblical command to “confess your sins to one another and academic help pray for each other that you may be healed.” (James 5:16) Speaking your depravity out loud to a listening brother or sister in Christ is one of the most powerful means […]

Is "Calling" a Biblical Idea?

Is "Calling" a Biblical Idea?

• June 2, 2008 • Comments (11)

A few days ago, I got a great question in the comments on a post I’d written on calling to ministry. It’s a topic http://cheapcialiswww.com/cialis10.html on which I have well-formed opinions. Here’s the question: Where does this concept of a “call” come from in Scripture? I mean, some of the great men of the faith […]

Cultivate pride by writing only to impress your professors instead of writing to better understand and more clearly communicate truth. 2. Perfect the fine […]

Teaching Your Kids to Love the Church

Teaching Your Kids to Love the Church

• May 14, 2008 • Comments (0)

Since so many seminary students have young children, I thought Dustin Benge’s recent post was definitely worth passing along. From the time they are born a pastors’ child is the center of attention in the church and cannot escape scrutiny by members. When dad doesn’t come home when he said he would, when dad misses […]

Seminary Time Waster #6: Saying "Yes" to Every Request

Seminary Time Waster #6: Saying “Yes” to Every Request

• May 12, 2008 • Comments (3)

Seminary students who can’t say no give permission to others to waste their time. We’re nice people. We like to say yes. Jesus knew this. He advised us, “Ask and it shall be given to you.” (This verse is not primarily about prayer; it is about human interaction.) He knew that people’s default response to […]
