God at Work (Part 2): The Practice of Work

In Part 1, we considered the purpose of work. We saw that work is good and given to humanity that we might feed ourselves. However, God’s judgement on human sin means that our work has become grim and futile. Christ redeems our work, giving us a new identity to live out...

God at Work (Part 1): The Purpose of Work

Before making a big life investment, it is crucial that we clearly understand its purpose. In the case of work, we spend more than half our waking week – time and energy – on it.

Divine Impassibility (Part 1): A Passionless God

The doctrine of divine impassibility refers to the belief that God is passionless in himself and does not suffer. The Westminster Confession of Faith puts it this way: "There is but one only, living, and true God, who is infinite in being and perfection, a most pure spirit, invisible, without body, parts, or passions"...

Why consider a Ministry Internship? (Part 2): My Journey

Throughout my time in senior high school, I wrestled with the idea of whether or not I should consider being trained for pastoral ministry. I had the surprising desire to do so (I say surprising because growing up as a pastor’s kid and seeing the challenges, I vouched to never become a pastor)...

弃当律师,到教会实习,我疯了吗?

stop collecting shells

入行后,我一直享受过着这样的 ‘基督徒兼律师’ 的生活。不过,我的牧者和教会成员,时不时都会问我:“你有教导圣经的恩赐,何不考虑全职福音事工?”对于他们这样的邀请,我都是断然拒绝的(有时甚至觉得烦人)。我心想:“我在职场和教会中,都在为神服事,为什么要放弃法律呢?法律和福音,我一直都能鱼与熊掌地兼得啊… "

Pragmatism and Church Growth: Why It is Bad

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a new school of philosophy emerged called ‘pragmatism’. This school of philosophy taught that the truthfulness of any idea or concept is based on its utility rather than on objective truth.
