When Brian Cox attempts to address metaphysics I get the exact same feeling as when my PC tells me "Windows is checking for a solution"
When they came with their requests, Jesus was never heartless or helpless, never hurried or harried. HE reigns on high. #EnjoyYourDay
The answer to bad preaching is not 'a more dialogical form', it's better preaching.
There's truth to the saying: "Gospel ministers are called to faithfulness not necessarily fruitfulness." But it could mask a deeper problem
To be "faithful" one might imagine plodding obedience. To be "fruitful" one must abide in Christ. In this sense we should aim for the latter

Sick of hearing a "gospel" that makes the Christian life sound like the second most miserable existence excepting hell
Crucified between two thieves with arms outstretched to the world, He prays Father forgive. Do you reckon He's for you? #EnjoyYourDay
In Acts 17 Paul does not give evidence for the resurrection. He heralds the resurrection as *proof* of his gospel.
Christ *appearing* is prominent in Paul's gospel (1Cor15:1-9) b/c the pinnacle of our hope is face2face (1Cor13) #ComingSoon #EnjoyYourDay

Thank God you never have to deal with tomorrow. (Matt 6:34) #EnjoyYourDay.
The oneness of God according to John's Gospel: The One and Only God is one with the Only True God (1:18; 10:30; 17:3). #WholeLottaOneness
If that's not the oneness of God you're thinking of, you're not thinking of the Bible's kind of oneness
We have a Shepherd for the darkest valley and a Lamb for the deepest pit. #EnjoyYourDay
22% of "evangelicals" believe the Father is more divine than Jesus. 51% think the Spirit is a force not a Person: LINK

Preacher: Does Jesus illustrate your point or does you point illustrate Jesus?
As surely as we're mired in suffering and sin so surely will we be raised to life and righteousness. 1Cor15:49 #EnjoyYourDay
"What good can come from this?" asks the sufferer. "What good will come from this!" exclaims our Saviour. #EnjoyYourDay
From the Talmud: "All prophets prophesied only for the days of the Messiah" (Sanhedrin 99a. p. 670).
Also from the Talmud: "The world was created only for the Messiah." (Sanhedrin 98b. p. 667).
"Christ alone" is an Old Testament doctrine.

In Jesus, God does not treat you like His child. You *are* His child. He *is* your Father. #EnjoyYourDay

He was crushed for the crushed. He was lifted for the lowly. (Isaiah 53:5; 57:15). #EnjoyYourDay.
Those who set aside 'good doctrine' in favour of 'good living' are like farmers rejecting 'good seed' in favour of 'good fruit' (CF Walther)
Your emptiness is all you have. Christ's fullness is all you need. #EnjoyYourDay
As the nights close in, sun-bathing seems a distant memory. But Jesus promises something better sun-radiating! (Matt 13:43) #EnjoyYourDay
Jesus signs all His letters "Yours forever". Whatever else He gives- commands/promises/warnings- ultimately He gives Himself #EnjoyYourDay

Emma's blog is read by Christians and non-Christians alike. I think it's cos she writes for neither, she just writes for sinners.
Her blog reminds me of this gorgeous Luther quote: http://t.co/HzeY7mALvf pic.twitter.com/WckV4visVG

"D'you wanna be in my gang?" <-- clique bait. In 1979 Uganda missed a trick. Having deposed their dictator they should've called their elections a Multiple Choice ExAminNation I can't do self-portraits so I'm just gonna lie down on card and trace my outline. It's back to the drawing board for me Today I'm getting into the festive spirit - knitting a glowing disc into my hair. Happy Halowee-eve everybody. Tonight I’m dressing up like a spy.
