Categories of Truth

FBFI Pulpit: Dr. David Innes, Hamilton Square Baptist Church, San Francisco, CA
Series: What is Fundamentalism?

What doctrines ought to divide Christians? What are those teachings where we ought to allow our brothers to differ? Between that which is essential and that which is preferential, a great gulf is fixed … or ought to be. Dr. Innes gives us some helpful categories by which we can make distinctions for our own understanding and for the enriching of our fellowship. You will find the downloadable file helpful for understanding this message. [Read More…]

Christian Worldview

George Stiekes

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Romans 12:2).

Ken Ham wrote: “Statistical research shows that approximately two-thirds of young people in America are leaving the church by the time they reach college age – with very few returning.” Once they get into the secular colleges, their minds are being filled with deceptions they are not prepared to handle, particularly in areas like evolution, political correctness over against truth, immorality and so many other areas that conflict with the Word of God. Are our young people and adults being properly discipled through the ministry of the local church? How much apologetical teaching is taking place in our churches today? Do we understand why we believe what we do?

Is CNN Giving You A Political Panic Attack?

Don Johnson

Have you heard the latest tweet from the president? Who can keep up? If you missed the tweets yesterday, there will be a new one today. And if you missed those, tune in to cable news, you will find the news readers all worked up about whatever the president had to say via tweet, off the cuff remark, or even a speech. We live in a mad media world, where every word is parsed to the nth degree; especially they come from that great enemy of the media, the president of the U. S. A.

Political goings on are the subject of the day in virtually every major news provider. Our Facebook feeds reflect it, as Christians and non-Christians share their triumphalist memes, their obsessive interests, their feelings of political anxiety and unease. It is as if all of life hinges on the success or failure of one man, to hear some people talk.

In this environment, I’d like to suggest a recent blog posting that provides some perspective.

Straight Cuts: The Responsibilities of Leaders and Followers

Randy Shaylor

FrontLine • May/June 2007

Hebrews 13:7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.

Hebrews 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

The contemporary church is fraught with many problems related to Christian leadership. Three are at the forefront: leaders who demand absolute authority over their followers; leaders whose sins are so blatant that they have forfeited the privilege of leadership; and Christians who believe that they may function autonomously. These two verses set forth God’s requirements for both leaders and followers.
