This is a change of pace, but I wanted to post this video; and further, to ask for continued prayer for our brother in Christ, Rory Wheeler (and now his wife, Kristen) as he continues to battle Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor-sarcoma (DSRCT) cancer (same cancer I had, you can read about my journey here). Kristen and Rory were just married on June 11th, and they did so in the midst of Rory’s continued battle with this terrible cancer. I became acquainted with Rory and Kristen through the internet, and ever since I have been praying for both of them. I am inviting you all to join me as the body of Christ, and as a participant in the intercessory work of Christ (cf. Heb. 7:25); to implore the LORD for Rory’s return to health, and to be healed of this dreadful cancer so that he and Kristen might spend many days and years together here on this earth. They are a beautiful couple who need our prayer support! Here’s the video of parts of their recent marriage day:

Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You. ~Jeremiah 32:17


Here’s Rob Bell on resurrection. What do you think?


Here’s Doug Wilson discussing how he perceives Rob Bell’s attitude, in regards to the current hub bub over Bell’s Love Wins!. What do you think of Wilson’s characterization? Does it ring true or false with you? And why, either way.


What do you think about this?:

Bad taste, funny, mocking, or marginalizing Rob Bell’s promo video for his book Love Wins! in fruitful ways?

It seems like Christianity often polarizes in either way, in extreme forms; one way or the other. I’m not a fan of Rob Bell’s method or theology, but then I’m not also a fan of mocking someone like this either (since I’m perfect).

If by chance you haven’t seen the infamous promo video from Rob Bell yet here it is (watch it first, then watch the one I have featured above):

A Little Thomas Torrance

“God loves you so utterly and completely that he has given himself for you in Jesus Christ his beloved Son, and has thereby pledged his very being as God for your salvation. In Jesus Christ God has actualised his unconditional love for you in your human nature in such a once for all way, that he cannot go back upon it without undoing the Incarnation and the Cross and thereby denying himself. Jesus Christ died for you precisely because you are sinful and utterly unworthy of him, and has thereby already made you his own before and apart from your ever believing in him. He has bound you to himself by his love in a way that he will never let you go, for even if you refuse him and damn yourself in hell his love will never cease. Therefore, repent and believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.” -T. F. Torrance, The Mediation of Christ, 94.

“I count myself one of the number of those who write as they learn and learn as they write.” - St. Augustine cited by John Calvin

“We must always keep in mind that the reason the Son of God came down from the hidden throne of the eternal Father and revealed heavenly doctrine was not to furnish material for seminary debates, in which the display of ingenuity might be the game, but rather so that human beings should be instructed concerning true knowledge of God and of all those things which are necessary to the pursuit of eternal salvation.” Martin Chemnitz, Loci theol. ed., 1590, Hypomnemata 9 cited by Barth, CD I/1, 82.
