    I have said it before: Whether we know it or even like it or not, every church and every service of worship is liturgical. Every church and every service of worship follows a prescribed liturgy. The liturgy may be bad or it may be good. Either way, it is there. James K.A. Smith, professor of …

  • The Lord Bless You

  • Justification, part 2

    You’ve heard it said before—especially those of you who cut your theological teeth on the Scofield Reference Bible—that in the New Testament God saves sinners by grace but in the Old Testament salvation is by works. Ironically, there is some truth to that. Just keep reading for a line or two more. Before the fall …

  • Will the Old Man be Snoring?

    Posted Nov 14th, 2011 By in Cadets Blog With | No Comments

    Grrr, once again the forecast is showing a chance of rain (30%) for Saturday. Hopefully as we get closer, we’ll be able to see that at least Saturday morning will be clear for a bike ride.
