Morning Mashup 06/13

David Prince on Andy Stanley – Andy Stanley took to Twitter to bash Southern Baptists for wasting time praying for revival when they should be “getting busy.” Pastor David Prince tactfully responds to this erroneous and Godless notion.

Pastors Aren’t Born But Formed – Derek Rishmawy: “In what follows I’d like to highlight three lessons on mentorship for both younger and older pastors drawn from Calvin’s early years.”

Reflections on the SBC 2014 Pastor’s Conference – Garrett Kell’s takeaways from the SBC Pastor’s Conference in Baltimore.

10 Personalities That Have No Place in Christian Marriage – Jason Helopoulos: “As a pastor, who has counseled many couples, and as a veteran of sixteen years of marriage, I have found that these ten personalities have no place in Christian marriage.”

When Sin Looks Delicious – Posts like these remind me why I love to read Tim Challies. He writes, “Do you ever have those days where you just want to sin? Sin looks delicious while righteousness looks distasteful. Sin looks satisfying and holiness looks frustrating. You wake up in the morning with a desire to do what you know you should not desire to do. Your heart echoes with what God said to Cain: ‘Sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for you.’ And your desire is for it. What do you do on a day like that?”

The End of Reformed Evangelical OT Scholars…Once More – Michael Bird: “As far as I can tell, the WTS board seems to have an allergy to the notion of a “christotelic” hermeneutic where Jesus is reckoned by the NT authors to be the goal of the OT itself, but in some cases such an observation can only be seen  retrospectively, from the Easter side of things.”

A sermon without Christ! As well talk of a loaf of bread without any flour in it. How can it feed the soul?” – Charles Spurgeon
