Grace Is Not Tame

This looks like good medicine. Guess I will have to settle for the MP3s again. You know Doug and Mark. Ben preaches at Doug’s church and his messages are simple yet profound. They really stick with you. I’ve read Nate Wilson but not heard him speak. I hear he’s also very good.


Masculinity and the Gospel | Mark Driscoll
Modern society is in the midst of a fatherhood and masculinity crisis and getting the Gospel right on this point is the only solution to the crisis. To do this we must understand the Gospel as the sort of message that demands that those who receive and present it be people who have a spine and understand its potency. This is a fundamental issue and affects everything from the integrity of our political leaders to the growth of modern atheism to the effectiveness of our evangelistic mission. Not to mention the health of our families.

Pomosexuality | Douglas Wilson
We live in a time when many of the older standards of “traditional morality” have come completely unstuck. Too many Christians think that this is just something that “happened,” that somebody “did,” and that if we get mobilized we can undo it. But this is actually a theological issue, a problem with our worship. There will be no return to biblical sexuality without a return to Jesus Christ.

The World and its Alternatives | N.D. Wilson
The universe is created, which means it is art. It exists in time, which means that it is narrative art. It encompasses every genre, both discovered and undiscovered, but all of it hangs within the frame of Comedy. Philosophers, poets, artists, scientists, and engineers notwithstanding there is only this strange and comic world — here it stands, and it can be no other.

Godlust | Ben Merkle
The flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But you are led by the Spirit . . . So act like it.

The Manifesto for the Grace Agenda | Douglas Wilson
It is too easy to think of grace as that “little extra” that gets us over the finish line. We do what we need to do, and God does the rest. But this is not grace at all, it is the heresy of the Galatians. If we want to counter it (as we should), we must learn to see that God’s grace is all of Christ, for all of life, for all the world.
