A pertinent blog by Dr. Albert Mohler:
Jeremiah Keenan, reporter for the Federalist, documented a decision last Wednesday in the Supreme Court of British Columbia. The court ordered that a 14-year-old girl receive testosterone injections without parental consent. The court also declared that if either of her parents referred to her using female pronouns or addressed her by her birth name, the parents could be charged with family violence.
The Marrow Controversy
If you’re wrestling over the relationship between Law and Gospel, you might consider looking into the Marrow Controversy. You can learn about it here in a series of three lectures by Dr. Sinclair Ferguson. Or, you can read about it in his book, The Whole Christ.
Speaking of the Law-Gospel relationship, this is an excellent little blog by Dr. Kevin DeYoung.
“It is the consistent witness of the New Testament that growth in godliness requires exertion on the part of the Christian. Romans 8:13 says by the Spirit we must put to death the deeds of the flesh. Ephesians 4:22-24 instructs us to put off the old self and put on the new. Ephesians 6 tells us to put on the full armor of God and stand fast against the devil. Colossians 3:5 commands us to put to death what is earthly in us. 1 Timothy 6:12 urges us to fight the good fight. Luke 13:24 exhorts us to strive to enter the narrow gate.”
From yours truly… “The Sermon on the Mount: A Personal Testimony“
This is fresh off the press on, from me.
“Meditating on the Sermon on the Mount has moved my heart in several ways. I began preaching through the Sermon on the Mount just shy of a year ago. I have at least two more sermons to go in this series. Allow me to list eight ways it has moved my own heart as I’ve learned the Sermon on the Mount.”
