Sometimes I wonder what I’m thinking. Martin Lloyd Jone’s (1899-1981) book Spiritual Depression has been testified about repeatedly by some of my greatest heroes in the faith (John Piper, CJ Mahaney, Bob Kauflin, Mark Driscoll…to name just a few). So the big question is – why haven’t I read this sooner? Duh. Each chapter has […]Read More Feelings…and Dr. Jones.
I’ll be honest, I’m not really sure where this post is going to go. There have been a bunch of things on my mind lately about worship after speaking with a couple last night and focusing on idolatry, I re-read Driscoll’s excellent chapter on Worship in his book “Doctrine – What Christians Should Believe.” Then…well…yeah…it […]Read More Culture and Worship (and Idolatry)

I was listening to Mark Driscoll yesterday…working thru his amazing Doctrine series. Specifically, I was listening to Revelation: God Speaks about the Bible…some great nuggets in there that I want to take down for future use… How reliable is the Bible? Aren’t there copying mistakes? Well, not really when you compare the number of copies […]Read More Reliablity of the Word of God – Driscoll
I have developed a deep and manly love for Mark Driscoll. Maybe it’s the faux-hawk, but probably because I’ve realized that he has learned an amazing amount, is a great no-nonsense communicator, and will ferociously stand where God has placed him. For years I have heard him speak here and there at various conferences and liked what […]Read More Have you worshipped about it?
