by Alisa Childers, The Gospel Coalition: A. W. Tozer once wrote about the problems he saw in the Christianity of his day. To counteract the “phrases and mottos that on the surface look great but are not rooted in Scripture or that mostly bolster one’s self-image,” he suggested that Christians demand scriptural proof from every teacher for their teachings. Nearly 60 years after his death, Tozer’s words couldn’t be more relevant. Today, we find many resources—many of which are marketed to...

Countering progressive Christianity

Jul 31, 2020 by

by Jessica Knell, Christian Today: There is a form of Christianity – for people who dislike Christianity; a palatable form of faith served with a side of post-liberalism and postmodernism belief.

Lloyd-Jones on Heresy

Mar 14, 2019 by

by Bill Muehlenberg, CultureWatch: I came upon a great quote by the great Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones today, and so I did a quick hunt for where it originally appeared. It did not take long to find the relevant volume.
