The term “Pharisee” gets thrown around a lot today. As you can imagine, I get accused of being a Pharisee constantly. I can’t tell you how much this word hurts me when others carelessly throw it my way. I also can’t help but wonder if those who are so fond of using this slur really understand the historical and spiritual implications of such an accusation.

The recent resurgence of Spurgeon study is a delight for those who appreciate his life and work. There is at least one clear reason for the rise of Spurgeon’s popularity: his day mirrors our day.

The “name it and claim it” or “prosperity gospel” is not biblical and is in many ways antithetical to the true gospel message and the clear teaching of Scripture. While there are many different versions of the name it and claim it philosophy preached today, they all have similar characteristics. At its best, this teaching comes from the misinterpretation and misunderstanding of some Scriptures, and, at its worst, it is a completely heretical teaching that has the characteristics of cultic doctrine.

We have had a lot happen recently within this ministry. I don't know if its so much of a personal impact that it feels like a lot is happening, or that there is really so much going on that there is too much to list down, but regardless we don't have much of an official way outside of blogs to share this information.
