Jesus and Money

"The book also makes clear that the prosperity Gospel is a false Gospel. There are more warnings in the New Testament about the dangers of wealth to our spiritual well-being than there are warnings about sexual sin."

Interview with Gordon D. Fee

If you haven't read anything by Gordon Fee, you should! He is one of my favorite New Testament scholars. Even if you don't agree with his Pentecostalism, you should. Why? Because you don't agree! It's way to easy for one to read everyone that he 99% agrees with and what happens is that people who do so only rehash their particular theology. This is what's happening in American Reformed theology for the most part. Just read R Scott Clark's work and you will see what I mean. My challenge to you...ready people you don't theologically agree with(other than Bell) like Moltmann, Pinnock, Karkkainen, and something strange will happen. You will walk away theologically enriched in what they are strong in and more strong in your position and more able to defend it or preach it.

Six Types of Reading

I really enjoy Ben's writings and now his videos

I believe in the Communion of Saints by A.W. Tozer

I have never read much of Tozer, but here is one section that I read from one of his books that I really liked. In the future I hope to read more of his works if not all of them.

My Absence

Sorry that I haven't posted in a while. I've been finishing up film school and busy with all that sorts of work.

Trinity, Relationality, Sex

Now in the confession of the Trinity we hear the heartbeat of the Christian religion: every error results from, or upon deeper reflection is traceable to, a departure in the doctrine of the Trinity.”

Study Goals

Well most of them right now are related to memorizing the creeds and I have one almost memorized(Nicene) and the other has to do with memorizing the Anglican Liturgy, which has the Nicene Creed in it. When I was a teenager I listened to the bible on tape and wore out many tapes and tape recorders and I was able to memorize large portions of the New Testament by doing so.

This time around though I'm not memorizing by reputation by hearing, but by verbally repeating. My main reason is that I don't like looking at the service book while kneeling. :)

Happy New Years,
