Good Storytellers Make Good Apologists

Good Storytellers Make Good Apologists

What makes a good apologist? We know some of the usual suspects. Eyewitnesses make good apologists. Matthew, John, Peter, and Paul, come to mind in the New Testament. These eyewitnesses—and hundreds more according to Paul—testify to the truth of the events they witnessed and recorded. Eyewitnesses are good apologists because they report the facts, hand down the events as they happened, and ensure that the reliable testimony is communicated to others. Close associates of eyewitnesses to the events of Jesus’ death and resurrection are also good apologists: think about Mark and Luke. Mark wrote much of the Gospel that bears his name on account of the eyewitness testimony of Peter. And Luke, like a good journalist and historian, did his . . . Read All

The House of Cornelius Baptized.

44 While Peter was still saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell on all who heard the word. 45 And the believers from among the circumcised who had come with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out even on the Gentiles. 46 For they were hearing them speaking in tongues and extolling God. Then Peter declared, 47 “Can anyone withhold water for baptizing these people, who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” 48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to remain for some days. (Acts 10:44-48 (ESV) While Peter is speaking the Holy Spirit falls upon the people as is . . . Read All
Wishing away evil. . .

Wishing away evil. . .

On the eve of the 13th anniversary of 9-11, we heard our President rally us to the cause of degrading and destroying one more incarnation of the Islamic terrorist threat that stained the national heart and soul when the airliners became tools of evil on that fateful day.  I pray that this renewed effort to confront terrorist threats against Americans and, indeed, the entire world, will be successful but I fear that this same President mirrors the weariness and wariness of a people who thought a war against evil could be fought like we did the Nazis and our enemies turned into partners and friends like the German nation became in the aftermath of the fighting.  Though this may be. . .

Worship as Repentance. . .

The modern penchant for tolerance was not always seen as the virtue it is accorded today.  Lets fact it.  Most churches, even Lutheran, have become a permissive community where little attention is given to confession and where there is a great divide between even basic beliefs and conduct.  The language of sin is as far removed from liturgical text and preaching as it is the common conversation of the members.  As such, most modern forms of Protestantism bear only a passing resemblance to their Reformation forebears. Lutherans also struggle mightily in this area.  Comfort is the byword of the day — comfort pervades the people and the witness.  Who wants to go to church to be convicted?  Who wants a. . . Read All
