What Every Young Christian Needs to Know About the Bible
December 7, 2013

Our Youth leader is making a series of videos for young people in the scheme who have little to no idea about biblical Christianity. Here is their first offering. The young lady in the clip is my eldest daughter, Keziah.

Risky Gospel, A Book Review
November 29, 2013

In the interests of full disclosure, this is a book written by a pal of mine. We’re not best mates or anything, but I have met the guy a few times and I like him a lot. He writes a blog here and he is also the new Director of the Council for Biblical Manhood […]

40 Reasons the Local Church is Still So Important
November 25, 2013

Is it possible to live a faithful Christian life without being a faithful part of a local church? I’ve heard many people make the argument that it is indeed possible—especially if there are no good churches around. I disagree. At the bare minimum, there are forty different commands in the New Testament to live life […]

Why I Really Hated The Pastor's Family
November 18, 2013

I love books. I whizz through them no bother at all. When a book grabs me, then I positively crunch through it. A couple of hundred pages doesn’t take me longer than a couple of hours. I have a few personal rules when it comes to reading. The title needs to be interesting, the concept […]

The Holiness of God
November 15, 2013

This is the second of 12 books I am studying and discussing with my Assistant Pastor and 20schemes Ministry Apprentices over the course of the next year. I have been waiting to read it with high expectations. I must admit to receiving vague threats concerning my review of this book, which I have tried not to […]

20schemes: Oh You Hate Women, Right?
November 11, 2013

“Women participate equally with men in the priesthood of all believers. Their role is crucial, their wisdom, grace, and commitment exemplary. While Scripture teaches that a woman’s role is not identical to that of men in every respect, and that pastoral leadership is assigned to men, it also teaches that women are equal in value to men.” […]

Should We Let Them Live? Thinking About Halloween In The Schemes
October 30, 2013

Halloween is always a tricky time for Christians. I vaguely remember ‘trick or treating’ as a young boy, carrying a pocket full of eggs. Even if we got goodies, we would usually end up throwing eggs at some poor unsuspecting householder. If somebody was really mean, we came back later with stones. It was not […]

The Conviction to Lead by Al Mohler, Review
October 7, 2013

So, I am going to go through one book a month for the next year with my Assistant Pastor, one of our first 20schemes Ministry Apprentices, and some other men in the city (pastors and planters). The idea is to take one Tuesday off per month for a time of discussion, prayer, and reflection on […]
