10 Lies We Believe that Lay a Foundation for Compromise

From our final class on “Godly Decision Making” this term

I know what the Bible says, but…

  • My situation is unique, so I can do this.
  • I am willing to deal with the consequences of this decision.
  • This decision will not make me happy.
  • This is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
  • It seems that God has given me this opportunity for a reason.
  • I really feel this is God’s will for my life.
  • I do not have any other options.
  • I know I am strong enough to resist the temptations that come with this decision.
  • I am only going to do this temporarily.
  • This decision really makes the most sense.

Extend the Same Grace You Preach Gospel Coalition

Another great article by Paul Tripp…

Extend the Same Grace You Preach  Gospel Coalition  In the duties, processes, and relationships of pastoral ministry I actively devalued the same grace I theologically defended.

“If You Still Think You’ve Arrived:” Paul Tripp, Gospel Coalition

“Gospel-driven, Christ-centered ministry, one that gives grace to those who hear, doesn’t start with theological knowledge; it starts with a humble heart. It starts with recognition of your own need and the acknowledgment that you and I are more like than unlike the people to whom God has called us to minister. And for this we have the grace of Jesus”…Outstanding article, that rebuked me deeply. I hope you will give a few minutes to thinking over its contents.
