25 Aug

Here are some helpful questions to help us identify the idols which we have put in the place of God.

  1. What do you most highly value?
  2. What do you think about by default?
  3. What is your highest goal?
  4. To what or whom are you most committed?
  5. Who or what do you love the most?
  6. Who or what do you trust or depend upon the most?
  7. Who or what do you fear the most?
  8. Who or what do you hope in and hope for most?
  9. Who or what do you desire the most? Or, what desire makes you most angry or makes you despair when it is not satisfied?
  10. Who or what do you most delight in or hold as your greatest joy and treasure?
  11. Who or what captures your greatest zeal?
  12. To whom or for what are you most thankful?

Happy October 31st

31 Oct

You’ll be relieved to know that we aren’t celebrating the pagan festival of Halloween.

Instead October 31st should be a day of celebration and thanksgiving for all Christians because today is the 491st anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his 95 theses to the church door at Wittenberg.

Challies has some links to good Reformation Day articles.

David Mathis has written a post on the Desiring God blog which is well-worth reading.

You could also celebrate by downloading and listening to “Martin Luther: Lessons from his Life and Labour” by John Piper.

Martin Luther 1483-1546

Happy Reformation Day!
