Kim Olsen of DiscernIt posts a transcript of Coy Wylie’s sermon, How to Test the Spirits, which he first preached on March 26, 2000. He faithfully exposits 1 John 4:1-6 to demonstrate how to distinguish between false teaching and solid Biblical doctrine.
I completely agree with Logan Judy’s essay, Why Entertainment is Costing the Church its Young People in A Clear Lens. God certainly showed me tremendous mercy in my teenage years by placing me in a group that focused almost exclusively on studying the Bible and evangelism.
Michelle Lesley braved the floods of Baton Rouge to give us The Mailbag: Attending a Homosexual “Wedding?” She keeps her answer short and Biblical, making a clear case for her advice.
Praise God for bold women like Elizabeth Prata of The End Time! Her essay, A Warning to Miracle-Mongers, forces us to consider some lesser publicized implications of miracles. Her perspective gives a sense of sobriety to the discussion that most people fail to consider.
Another on-target article from Leslie A. of Growing 4 Life: Change is in the Wind. I started The Outspoken TULIP precisely because of the many types of change that loom in our near future, and for that reason her blog post wonderfully compliments everything I’ve been writing. Please check out her thoughts and Scriptures of encouragement for believers.
We’ve all experienced conflict when we present the Gospel to loved ones who don’t know the Lord.

If you’re struggling in your evangelistic efforts, this piece will greatly encourage you!
Elly Achok Olare, a Reformed pastor from Kenya, writes How God Saved Me from the Prosperity Gospel for The Gospel Coalition Blog. His poignant testimony highlights the spiritual abuse that Pentecostal and Charismatic theology often inflicts on suffering people.
Do you understand what the Roman Catholic Church means by the term “unity?” Mark Gilbert’s blog post, Is the Pope Catholic for GoThereFor.com answers that question in a startling way. If you support ecumenical efforts, you may want to consider what Gilbert says and possibly reevaluate your position.
Social action in missions had always seemed like a good idea to me…until recently. I have developed some of the same concerns that The Cripplegate’s Joel James expresses in his blog post, 2 problems with social action in missions. I look forward to reading the remainder of this series next week.
Jared C. Wilson’s article for The Gospel Coalition Blog, Top 10 Things I Wish Worship Leaders Would Stop Saying hits the nail on the head! Church services aren’t high school pep rallies, nor is having fun the reason we gather on Sunday mornings. I praise God that Wilson reminds us to treat worship with reverence.
