The Theology of Thanksgiving — “As with many holidays, Thanksgiving is deeply rooted in Christian theology and practice. In the hearts and homes of the redeemed, the focus of Thanksgiving must not be on traditions or limited to a single day in late November. For us, giving thanks is to be a deeply spiritual exercise that naturally flows from a transformed heart.”

What Is Hypostatic Union? — “If we want people to accept Christ as their Lord and savior and experience the life-changing forgiveness and love he offers, we need to be able to tell them about who is offering that salvation. It’s God in the flesh.”
Apostasy and How it Happens — “Yes, apostasy happens. Sometimes the catalyst is flagrant sin. The pain of conviction and repentance is refused, and the only alternative to it is wholesale rejection of Christ. But sometimes the catalyst is a thorn growing quietly in the heart, an indifference to the way of the Cross, a drifting that is not reversed by the knowledge of biblical warnings.”
The Statement on SJ&G Explained: Article 10, Sexuality and Marriage — “The source of all of this chaos–chaos that is damaging to human happiness and flourishing? As the Statement puts it, it is a refusal to “honor the image-bearing character of human sexuality as created by God.” Our secular age has rejected the Creator and therefore has no room for “image-bearing” or transcendent value or objective truth.”
