Classic Christianity

In 1985 the Coca Cola Company introduced a reformulation of their flagship soft drink. It became unofficially known as “New Coke.” The reaction from the buying public was overwhelmingly negative, and the original formula was brought back three months later as “ Coca Cola Classic.” New Coke was renamed Coke 2 in 1990, and finally discontinued in 2002. Apparently what people really wanted was Classic Coke.

I recently returned from the Basic Conference held for pastors held every year at Parkside Church near Cleveland, Ohio. About 1500 pastors gather there from all over the United States and several foreign countries for the immense privilege of hearing Pastor Alistair Begg and one or two invited guests, usually from the British Isles. The content is Biblical and encouraging, and it is delivered in either a Scottish, English, or Irish brogue, which gives the speakers such an unfair advantage.

Weekly Update for Sunday, May 12, 2024

Mother’s Day Today we want to thank God for motherhood. In honor of Mother’s Day, there are flowers in the narthex. If you are a mother, or have a mother, please take one or more. We acknowledge that Mother’s Day can be difficult for some. So, we remember the grief of those who have lost their mothers; the struggle of those who desire to be, but have not yet become a mother; and the deep heartbreak of those who are, for whatever reason, unable to become mothers. Nevertheless, today we want to honor motherhood and give thanks to God for our own mothers.

Stop Making Disciples!

When I was in college the King James Bible was pretty much the predominant translation used in most churches. Sometimes I miss the days when nearly everyone was reading from the same translation. We are wealthy in God’s Word today, with many good English translations of the Scriptures available. (There are some stinkers, too.) But in those days, it was King James Version.

The college I went to emphasized what is called “The Great Commission” given to us by Jesus after His resurrection and before He ascended into Heaven. It appears five times in the New Testament, in Matthew 28, Mark 16, Luke 24, John 20 and Acts 1. But the first time the Great Commission appears is in the Gospel of Matthew. In the King James Version it reads like this:
