Saturday Sampler: October 30 — November 5

Tulip Sampler 02Get comfortable, because Gary Giley’s Discernment and Revelation on the Southern View Chapel website takes time to read. But if you want to understand why people like me believe that the Holy Spirit speaks exclusively through Scripture, you’ll find comprehensive and compelling evidence for our position in this article. Make time to read it, please.

In honor of Reformation Day, Sharon LaRue of Chapter 3 Ministries invites Protestants and Catholics alike to study Reformation Day and the Doctrine of Justification. Its wonderful that Sharon’s health allowed her to blog for this important occasion.

I don’t know if reading The Woman in the Wheelchair Who Thought She Could Not Be Saved by Jordan Standridge on The Cripplegate makes me sad or angry. Both, I think. But it also  makes me grateful for the Reformation, which restored the Bible’s teaching that Christians are justified by faith, not works on penance. Whatever caused that woman’s disability didn’t cripple her nearly as much as the damnable teachings of the Roman Catholic Church!

Rosaria Butterfield became a Christian in 1999. Her conversion cost her a prestigious  academic position as a professor of English Literature and Women’s Studies, and it also convinced her to renounce her lesbian lifestyle and prominent position as an LBGTQ activist. Her background lends power to her recent piece in The Gospel Coalition Blog, Love Your Neighbor Enough to Speak Truth: A Response to Jen Hatmaker.

Adding to the Jen Hatmaker conversation, Denny Burk writes, Yes, let’s remember who’s watching this conversation. Are we really going to manifest a compromised caricature of “Christianity” for the sake of political correctness?

Writing for She Disciples, Kim Wine offers insight into Why You’re Not Changing Even Though You’re a Christian. I appreciate Kim for basing her practical counsel firmly in the Word of God.

In his article, 10 Reasons Why the Reformation is Not Over, Josh Buice of Delivered by Grace encourages us to persevere in preaching the Gospel. I completely agree! As long as professing Christians distort the Gospel and propagate false teaching, the true Church will need to continually reform herself.

Most importantly I belong to the Lord Jesus Christ. Secondarily, I'm married to my wonderful husband, John. We've both used wheelchairs since childhood (he from Polio and me from Cerebral Palsy). I type with a headstick because I can't control my hands. I enjoy reading, creating digital art, and exploring Boston with John.
