The preachers responsibility: frame a biblical understanding of the Christian life

  [tweetable]Preaching — the practice of expositing God’s Word to God’s people — has fallen on hard times.[/tweetable] On the one hand, the large number of evangelical pastors I know who remain committed to faithful biblical exposition greatly encourages me. These men know the purpose and the power of preaching God’s Word. On the other…

Memphis, Miami, Milan and Mumbai: Why every Christian needs to be globally minded

  [tweetable]Authentic Christian ministry often comes in a context of danger and risk.[/tweetable] We want to be a generation ready to live dangerously for the gospel: ready to go, ready to witness, ready to serve, ready to live and ready to die. We are geographical people. We know the apostle Paul largely through letters with…

This article originally appeared at AlbertMohler.com. Used by permission. We are fast becoming a pornographic society.

Part V – The pastors confession

  All this assumes, of course, that the pastoral ministry is first rooted in the pastor’s own confession of faith — the pastor’s personal theological convictions. The faithful pastor does not teach merely that which has historically been believed by the church and is even now believed by faithful Christians — he teaches out of…

Part III – The pastor and theological triage

  *Editors note: Read also Part 1 and Part 2 of this series.  The pastor’s stewardship of the theological task requires a clear sense of pastoral priority, a keen pastoral ear and careful attention to the theological dimensions of church life and Christian discipleship.

  The transformation of theology into an academic discipline more associated with the university than the church has been one of the most lamentable developments of the last several centuries. In the earliest eras of the church, and through the annals of Christian history, the central theologians of the church were its pastors. This was…
