The Sufficiency of Scripture and Family Integration

Posted on Dec. 12, 2009

Kevin Swanson shared how the battle for the family and the church is being fought on issues of Biblical jurisdiction.

Scripture delegates to the family, the church, and the state certain spheres of authority, and they can exercise no authority outside those spheres. Tragically, however, the church has usurped authority from the family by training youth through Sunday schools and youth groups, whereas the Bible commits the training of children to their parents. Relationships may be ‘slow’ and ‘inefficient,’ but discipleship is God’s method.

As we reject this unbiblical usurpation, families and churches must be integrated with humility, law, and love.

He closed by reminding his listeners that we are fighting for the life of the family and the church in the twenty-first century. Every battle in this war is important. By God’s grace, these battles will be won.

Joseph Morecraft - The Sufficiency of Scripture for Church Discipline

Posted on Dec. 12, 2009

Joseph Morecraft wisely applied the sufficient Scriptures to church discipline this morning.

He explained that every member of the church is responsible to exercise church discipline through the process of discipling others. Faithful church discipline is an essential mark of a true church. The church must expel the wolves lest they devour the flock.

Quoting from Revelation 2:20-23, he solemnly warned his hearers that if church discipline is not practiced in our churches, the Lord Jesus Christ, the sole head of the Church, will discipline us with an iron hand and remove His lampstand from us.

Andy Davis - The Sufficiency of Scripture for Habits of Obedience

Posted on Dec. 12, 2009

Andy Davis spoke this morning on the sufficiency of Scripture for habits of obedience.

Why build these habits? We are commanded to present our bodies to God as living sacrifices (Romans 12) and we do this by growing into habitual obedience. This is the process of sanctification.

Andy laid out seven key areas in which we must build these habits: worship, spiritual disciplines, family, ministry to other Christians, ministry to non-believers, stewardship, and work…

Paul Washer - America’s Jeremiah

Posted on Dec. 12, 2009

This evening, Christ was preached. Paul Washer is a man like Jeremiah, who speaks because he cannot hold it in. He closed this wonderful Friday of the conference by preaching the Gospel. I could say much about all that he said, but his message was very simple: “Your home-education, nice clothes, and manners cannot save you. Flee to Christ!” 

“My desire is to strip you of every hope in the flesh, to shut you off from every hope whatsoever of somehow making yourself right with God by your own virtue and merit.” If you repent of trying to clothe yourself in the filthy rags of your own righteousness and fall on Christ, He will save you. Then you will grow in Christ-likeness, and you will know His presence; this is the Gospel. 

Our beginning point and our ending point, our motivation and our reward, our desire and our satisfaction, must be in Christ alone. “Judge everything you do by this standard: is it really only for Him? If he took everything away and left you only with Him, would you still have joy unspeakable, because your hope is in Him?” 

“Throw yourself on Christ, and you will not be disappointed.”

Biblical Youth Ministry

Posted on Dec. 12, 2009

This evening I tried to set before the gathered families a Biblical analysis of youth ministry.

I grew up along with the culture of youth ministry—read all the books, tried all the methods. But I came to realize that the rise of programmatic, age-segregated youth ministry in the mid-twentieth century was actually a new invention in the history of the church. For the first time in history, trained youth ministers have been recruited in order to put the young people of the church in the hands of so-called experts. Now, at the beginning of the 21st century, churches are shelling out millions of dollars on programs, buildings, and entertainment for youth. The focus of these churches has been shifted from evangelism to entertainment under the name of evangelism and church leaders are setting aside the commands of God for church and family life in order to grow the church…
