Before I get started with A little of this and a little of that, I wanted to take care of some scheduling business… One of the more popular weekly posts I have is What I Learned In Church Yesterday, starting this week it will come on Tuesdays, and not it’s normal Mondays… I will call it What I Learned In Church This Week, so that leaves Mondays… I usually post something from John MacArthur once a week, that will now come on Mondays and I’ll call it MacArthur Mondays. This will give me more time to write about what I learned in church this week, there are many weeks I feel rushed, so this should fix that, I hope! Now back to this and that.
Our first stop this Saturday morning comes at a perfect time for me… So here we go!

Grow Up. Settle Down. Keep Reforming. Advice for the Young, Restless, Reformed by John MacArthur… It has been five years since Christianity Today published Collin Hansen’s article titled “Young, Restless, Reformed.” Hansen later expanded the article into a book with the same title (Wheaton: Crossway, 2008). He has carefully documented a very encouraging trend: large numbers of young people (college age and younger) are discovering the doctrines of grace, embracing a more biblical and Christ-centered worldview, and beginning to delve more deeply into serious theology than most 20th-century evangelicals were prone to do.

Chosen By God A Teaching Series by Dr. R.C. Sproul Starting with lecture 1… Scripture very plainly uses the word “predestined” in reference to the salvation of God’s people. Most denominations and some of the greatest theologians have wrestled with this issue through the centuries and have carefully formulated statements regarding this controversial topic. What do you believe about predestination? Watch the whole series for free Here
“We have come to a place in time where we measure the correctness of our plans simply by their seeming to contribute to our favorite aim. We estimate the soundness of our doctrine, not from its tendency to exalt and glorify God…but entirely by the apparent facility with which it enables us to get sinners to turn from their ways.” Horatius Bonar
