MYTHBUSTERS: What are the 10 Commandments Good For?

Posted July 13, 2011 by: J. David Hall |0 Comments

What are the Ten Commandments are really good for. Aside from the issue of displaying them in courthouses and schoolrooms, what meaning do they have specifically for the Christian? As I began studying I came across this quote in the Bible Knowledge Commentary: Though believers today are not under the Law (Rom. 6:15), they are under obligation to abide by the holy standards represented in the Ten Commandments. I'm trying hard to understand that. Are we under the law or not? Seriously, I don't get it. Smart people wrote that book but that statement contradicts itself. I'm not trying to be dense or a smart-aleck, but the Ten Commandments are a big deal. What we believe about them affects how we choose to behave as Christians.... Keep Reading

Eliphaz's MBA

I recently read a business case written by a friend who works with businesses and individuals in implementing biblical solutions in their personal and workplace lives. I have tremendous respect for his work, skills and wisdom. However, I was uncomfortable with the primary conclusion of this business case. The story goes that after a particularly successful year, a businessman decided to invest his tithe in his own business. The next year, a slam-dunk contract which was expected to be quite profitable nearly bankrupted the company.... Keep Reading

OBAMANATION: Is Obama God's Judgment on America?

Posted November 18, 2008 by: J. David Hall |0 Comments

The 2012 presidential campaign has begun, which is just another way of saying that the 2008 presidential election is over. Barack Hussein Obama is President-elect of the United States and Senator John McCain is exactly that--senator. And oh the hand-wringing has begun. How many times have I heard evangelical Christians wondering (worrying) if the election of Obama is God's judgment on our country? (More than once I've heard that the "choice" between Obama and McCain was evidence enough of God's wrath.)... Keep Reading

Sailboats and Libraries

While having lunch with a friend a few weeks ago we were talking about the encouragement of being around some of the elder statesmen in the faith--men in their late 60's and 70's who have been faithful in following Christ and leading his church for decades and are now in the "retirement" stage of their lives. I was shocked as he quoted one of these highly respected men saying basically, "I feel like a ship out on the sea with my sail up, but no wind. I'm really having to trust God through this stage because I feel like I have so much to give but no one is asking."... Keep Reading

N.T. Wright, the Anglican Bishop of Durham who became a hero to Evangelicals while debunking the Jesus Seminar and became a heretic for questioning... well, I'm not sure exactly what it was, but some sort of technical theological point that is regarded as incredibly important by some theologians that I greatly admire, has written an excellent review of C.S. Lewis's Mere Christianity.... Keep Reading
