Armed with … faith we shall set things down at their true value. Filled with … faith we shall neither add to the cross nor subtract from the cross … A religion which costs nothing is worth nothing. (pg. 77) Quote taken From Holiness by JC Ryle ©1879, reprinted 1999 by Evangelical Press.

Book Review: Catching Foxes by John Henderson

I have read a lot of good, helpful books on marriage. I’ve read Keller, I’ve read Tripp, and while I like all the books I review (or else why would I recommend them), I don’t think I’ve ever said this is “the best” book on the subject … until today. I think Catching Foxes by […]

On the Believer and Sin

The Christian is not a man or woman who ought to be walking in the light but who so often is walking in darkness. The Christian is one who, by definition here, is always walking in the light even though he falls into sin. By falling into sin you do not return to walking in […]

How Theology Leads to Joy

There are certain absolutes – the Incarnation, the Atonement, regeneration, sanctification, the doctrine of sin and of the devil, and the doctrine of the Second Coming. And as we believe and understand and practice these things in our relationship to God, in our relationship to one another as Christians, and in our relationship to the […]

2 Problems Youth Have with Prayer & How to Help Them Through It

We’ve been working through things Christians do at Sojourn Youth, the youth ministry of Redeemer Fellowship. I purposely started with prayer because if I’m going to struggle with a discipline, it’s this one. The last couple of weeks we’ve discussed Matt. 6:5-15, 1 Thess. 5:16-18, and  Phil 4:4-7.
