God’s Sovereignty and the Fall of Assyria

The Lord is good,     a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him.     But with an overflowing flood he will make a complete end of the adversaries,     and will pursue his enemies into darkness. (Nahum 1:7–8)   When I was visiting the British Museum in London last September, I was reminded […]

On The Double

Dante’s Soul-Pictures

A baptized, disciplined imagination is essential for Christian maturity. As the ‘organ of meaning,’ the imagination serves an indispensable role in apprehending the Good, the True, and the Beautiful — those transcendentals that find their fountainhead in the triune God. A Spirit-shaped imagination enables us to enjoy God more. And so, Trinitarian Hedonists cultivate holy […]

How God Has Revealed Himself

We believe in education because we believe in God. And we do the kind of education we do because of how God revealed himself.

Hanging Upon the Unseen God

[George Müller evidenced “certain prominent peculiarities” that included] “An experience of habitual hanging upon the unseen God and nothing else. The reports, issued annually to acquaint the public with the history and progress of the work, and give an account of stewardship to the many donors who had a right to a report—these made no […]

To the Islands

The first time I heard the word “seminary” was when people around me joked about how the word sounded similar to “cemetery”. Unfortunately, many well-meaning young men went to phony liberal seminaries just to find themselves burying their faith, never to be recovered again. More regrettably, these dead men ended up filling the pulpits of […]

The Hand of God

By the grace of God our family made it to Minneapolis. Traveling in summer of 2021 from India to the US was a test in every way—God brought us here. His hand was in every step of the way. When the prayers of the saints around the world combined with the generosity of the saints […]

For the Joy of India

People used to ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up. While my answers changed with evolving interests, shepherding God’s people was never on my “probable vocation” list. That changed with my exposure to reformed theology through the expository preaching ministry of faithful pastors and teachers. The correct understanding of the gospel […]

The Sin of Equivocation

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight! (Isa 5:20–21) Equivocation, or doublespeak, is not simply a logical fallacy […]

To Your Name Give Glory

For decades the people of Bethlehem Baptist Church and its affiliated ministries have prayed and labored on behalf of the unborn. We have marched in the frigid temperatures of Minnesota. We have supported crisis pregnancy centers and cultivated a culture of adoption and foster care. We have voted for life, and lifted up the worth […]
