The Truth That Holds Your Mind Will Mold Your Living.

Finally Free: Fighting for Purity with the Power of Grace

Finally Free by Heath Lambert Reviewed by Dustin Butts   For this is the will of god, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality – 1 Thessalonians 4:3 “Never before in the history of telecommunications media in the United States has so much indecent (and obscene) material been so easily accessible by so many…” Those words were penned by the U.S. Department of Justice in 1996. Two decades later, the prevalence and accessibility of indecent material has grown, and continues to grow exponentially. In our hyper-sexualized culture, the words of the Apostle Paul to the church in Thessalonica have never been more needed. Sexual immorality is everywhere in our culture, and sadly it seems to be gaining a stronger and stronger foothold in the church. The strongest of those strongholds appears to be the use of pornography by Christians. For many in the church, this reality is not just alarming, it’s personal.

Delighting in the Trinity

A New Favorite by Tim Challies It’s a feeling every reader knows and loves, and perhaps especially the reader of theology.

A Review of Future Grace by John Piper

11/18/2008 Amazing grace! how sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me! But what is this amazing grace? How does it work? How is it appropriated? Why do we need it? What is the relationship of God’s promises to His grace? What does God desire to be to us, for us, and in us? In Future Grace, John Piper answers these questions and many more. Piper’s ultimate purpose in this book is that the living God would be prized, pursued and praised above all things. The overriding principles, and the burdens of his heart, that Piper wants us to understand are that, “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.” “The faith that justifies also sanctifies, because the nature of faith is to be satisfied with all that God is for us in Jesus.” Piper’s aim and purpose in expounding the nature and the glories of grace is that we would understand that the Christian life is one of faith. Faith in the One who loved us and gave himself for us. That “saving faith means, in its...
