Whitehorse inn on Discipleship and Youth Ministry

You absolutely MUST listen to the White Horse Inn’s podcast on Discipleship!  These guys have talked around the Youth Ministry/Intergenerational Discipleship issue for a while now, but this recent broadcast hit the nail on the head.  I could not believe what I was hearing.  Remember, these are not FIC guys.  Nevertheless, they have identified the problems inherent in age-segregated ministry.  At one point Ken Jones says point blank that “the only place we see [systematic age grading] is in the public schools.”  Again, I am not saying these guys are on the FIC side of the ledger.  In ...

James White on Dave Welch’s Worldnet Daily Article

On December 22nd, my friend, Dave Welch of the Houston Area Pastor’s Council wrote an article defending the Manhattan Declaration.  Welsh’s article was a response to opposition in general (which would include me), and John MacArthur’s opposition in particular to the Declaration.   I addressed this issue in our December Newsletter.  One of the articles to which I linked was an article by one of my favorite apologists of all time, James White.  White’s article speaks for itself, however, this video response to Welch may help those of you who are having a hard time understanding why ...

Top Ten Reasons I May Not Have Answered Your Question (Part 2 of 2)

5.I Respect Your Spouse/Parents   A woman once wrote, “My husband doesn’t want me to homeschool my kids.  Instead, he’d rather me send them to public school where their faith will be destroyed, and I’ll lose their hearts.  What should I do?”  Besides being a ‘loaded’ question, this one (and dozens just like it) puts me in an untenable position.  If I were to answer, I would be faced with two possibilities.  I could agree with this woman, or I could agree with her husband.  In turn, each of my possible responses would leave the women ...

Top Ten Reasons I May Not Have Answered Your Question (Part 1 of 2)

The questions continue to pile in. Most of the questions are fantastic. However, some of them are a bit, shall we say, off target. In fact, I’ll be doing a post later this month on “The Top Ten Reasons I May Not Have Answered Your Question.” Remember, the goal here is to honor Jesus Christ by “Equipping Believers to Walk in Truth.” As such, I try to pick questions that are broad, related to the nature and scope of my ministry, and common to a large cross-section of my audience. Therefore, don’t look for your specific question about ...
