#1 Passion: Lessons from Shepherd’s Conference 2015: One of my great privileges in ministry is being able to attend the Shepherd’s Conference, an annual event held in southern California. Promoted a year in advance, this year was special. Scholars from around the world came together for an event that was extended by a day and brought nearly 5000 men together to discuss the topic of inerrancy. I am sure each has their own thoughts and perspectives and these are simply the most significant thoughts that resonated throughout the conference.
#2 Daily Devotion: Confessing Sin ~ 1 John 1:9-10: 1 John 1:9 reads, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive.” As part of our daily devotion series, we have explored just what John means when he writes these words.
#3 Daily Devotion: Fellowship with Christ and in Christ ~ A Review of 1 John 1: What does it mean to have fellowship with Christ? It is predicated on the foundation of having fellowship in Christ. Fellowship is a key theme of the first chapter of 1 John. It became the center of daily devotion upon reviewing the chapter upon completing our walk through chapter one.
#4 The Epistle of Barnabas: An Allegorized Writing Testing the Confines of Time: The Epistle of Barnabas finds itself mentioned among the Early Church Fathers. An allegorized writing of the day, it continues to be a writing that is looked at in great detail in order to understand the early Christian mindset. As part of a weekly series in historical theology, a brief overview of the epistle became one of our studies.
#5 Polycarp of Smyrna: An Example of How to Live and How to Die: A martyr with much influence, Polycarp exemplifies what Paul wrote to the Philippians when he said, “to live is Christ and to die is gain.” A life focused on Christ he was quite content to die for Christ. The examination of Polycarp represents yet another chapter in our explorations of historical theology.
