High School seminary is about ready to start in Idaho Falls. But why are the 100’s of teens in town skipping over Genesis 1-5?
Perhaps the paid seminary profs might invite me as a guest speaker. Utilizing the scriptural data, I could introduce all our teens to the glorious Creator God of the universe.
I am sporting a beard. Would you like to see my latest pic?
Does this distinguish me from approximately the 100 LDS bishops in the area? 🙂
Kevin DeYoung and Tullian Tchividjian had an important conversation this spring.
Where do you stand on the relationship of justification and sanctification?
What do think is the position of the LDS General Authorities?
I received in the mail yesterday a hard copy of the new Credenda agenda (Spring/Summer 2011).
This is a salvation that brings us to the Father. We are taught to pray to our Father, in Heaven. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, but we never forget He is the way to the Father. We are ushered into a divine unity and fellowship on the basis of what Jesus has done for us. The Father is our destination, Jesus is the road, and the Spirit carries us down that road. Because we are forgiven, and only because we are forgiven, we can know that God is triune. Because we are forgiven, we may partake of the divine life and nature. But we belong to Him by grace, and not by any inherent natural power of ours. We are united to Him in truth, and forever, but He is always the Creator, and we are always the creatures. Grace stupefies.

Are you guys all headed to The Grace Agenda conference, September 16-17?
Yesterday, my son, Joshua, got to drive both of these classics. A ’66. And a ’59.
Ex-LDS are already starting to publish books about Mitt Romney.
Should I as Baptist preacher publish a book about Mitt? No, I think I will pass. Wouldn’t writing a book about the Lord Jesus be far better for me and my LDS friends?
Mark Noll begins the discussion with that title for his essay.
So readers, after perusing my blog (for some of you – it’s been 5+ years), what kind of Baptist do you think I am? 🙂
In Southeastern Idaho, we talk about theosis.
In Blackfoot, Idaho, Dan Cravens takes a shot in our news for seeking to connect “theosis” and Joseph Smith with the early church fathers. But I am not convinced. Are you? One defender of the Judea-Christian tradition shares with you some of his thoughts on our discussion in S.E. Idaho.
Joel seeks to connect Mormonism with an altogether different tradition than that of the early church fathers.
